Celebrities Slam Kanye West Outburst at VMAs

Celebrities from Kelly Clarkson to Pink are slamming Kanye West over his asinine outburst at the MTV Video Music Awards. West burst onstage as Taylor Swift was accepting her award for Best Female Video and insulted her by telling the audience Beyoncé should have won the award.

Taylor Swift was just about to enjoy her moment of glory for winning the Best Female Video award at the VMAs when Kanye West accosted her on the stage. Grabbing the mic from her hand, West addressed the crowd and said: “Taylor, I’m really happy for you, and I’m gonna let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time.”

Taylor Swift stood briefly stunned as the audience loudly booed Kanye West for his nasty outburst and then rapidly fled the stage. MTV cameras cut to a wide shot and then to a taped piece, but the damage was already done. Beyoncé tried to make up for West’s horrible behavior by calling Taylor Swift back on stage during her acceptance of the award for Best Video, but poor Swift just looked traumatized and miserable.

Kanye West later apologized on his blog, writing: “I’m sooooo sorry to Taylor Swift and her fans and her mom.” Fans and celebrities, however, don’t want to hear his lame excuses.

Kelly Clarkson penned a biting letter on her blog to West. “I’ve seen you do some pretty shitty things, but you just keep amazing me with your tactless, asshole ways,” Clarkson said. The former American Idol winner was also up for the Best Female Video category, which Taylor Swift won. Pink, also nominated for the category, attacked West via Twitter, saying, “Kanye West is the biggest piece of shit on earth. Quote me.”

Another American Idol alumni also took to the Internet to express his displeasure over Kanye West’s heartless VMA outburst. Adam Lambert wrote on his Twitter feed, “Kayne needs to chill. He freaks out every year. It ain’t that deep man.” Katy Perry, posting on her Twitter feed, was less kind. “Fuck U Kanye. It’s like u stepped on a kitten.”

Shame on you Kanye West, no apology is acceptable for this kind of behavior. Let’s hope somebody learns the lesson this time and bans your ass from every awards show known to man from now on.

  1. I wonder if anything will happen to kanye west for acting like a racist pig. Because anytime a white person says anything to a black person they are labeled as racist. kanye west just showed how racist people really can be. I’m so glad I don’t like rap cause if I did he would be banned for sure. My 2 year old grandson has more character than you kanye west. If you can’t act human then just stay home next time with your bottle.

  2. Kanye, Dude what was you thinking? What would you’re mother think bout you’re stinking thinking? She would be soooooo dissapointed in you,i’m sure. Get a grip, and man up dude. You bit you;re own ass!!!!!

  3. Taylor Swift is the worst signer I have ever heard. Just another pop star princess. Beyonce actually has some talent. Good job kanye.

  4. Kanye, you need to address your mental illness and poor impulse control. GET HELP! How dare you insert yourself into the middle of an acceptance speech and humiliate that poor woman! You are a CRETIN! Your mother must be rolling over in her grave. Your appology is not acceptable, and your nerve taking up even more air-time tonight on Jay Leno was yet another example of you spinning out of control. Get the treatment that you need!!!!!!!1

  5. @sematerywitch:

    Please stop bringing the racist card!!!
    He’s a uneducated jerk and should be banned from any kind of shows.

    But he didn’t say anything about the color of her skin. So let’s stop bringing racism where whenever we want to.
