that just shows how famous he isStormo. said:It should not have mattered that much if he said it in front of millions. It should have been talked about for a week and forgotten about. Instead people want him dead for that to this day.

Perfectly stated. This is what I meant with my post. I obviously didn't express it well at all. But I agree with this 100%.Ape said:TBH, no one would give two shits about Taylor winning over Beyonce if Kanye hadn't said anything. I mean really, (I can't remember the exact award) was the Best Female Video really that important to you? Face it, Kanye was drunk and he done goofed.
And Kanye got shit for the Bush thing because he said that shit on a telethon dedicated to helping out the victims. Instead of contributing to the cause, he made black people look loud and uncivilized.
Kanye lacks all self control at times and is at times an asshole. While the media does over-crucify him over petty shit, it still doesn't change the fact that Ye shouldn't have done it in the first place.
I mean seriously, I was a dick on a forum, I apologized for being crazy, people tell me to chill and then they write rants directed at me? I'm almost flattered. Seriously Stormo, I don't have a bone to pick with you, and I agree with you, so let's just call it a truce or something, damn dude.Szohr said:
EXACTLY! I mean I didn't think the aftermath was too hilarious considering the racist death threats he received, but exactly.Oogity said:Before I start this, I didn't like Bush as a president. I don't like Taylor Swift's music. I still feel like you're wrong on this.
The Bush controversy:
Kanye was talked about because it was supposed to be a fundraiser from all kinds of celebrities to raise money for Katrina Victims. They had a script, they had lines they were supposed to say, and it would've been touching and nice and happy. Then Kanye says the Bush line. He broke script to say a personal opinion that had little basis, and IMO was Kanye just trying to get attention. But whatever.
Then the Taylor Swift thing. Sure, maybe she didn't deserve the award. But she won it, and it was her time to stand on the stage, take in HER moment, and Kanye interrupts that to tell her that she doesn't deserve it. It was a dick move, and you can't deny that. People didn't talk shit about Kanye for speaking his mind. He could've said it afterwards. Create a video, say it in a song, I don't care. But to interrupt the awards ceremony and Taylor's moment was uncalled for.
I love Kanye as an artist, and it seems like he's starting to try to be a better person. And yeah, he was going through some shit in his life. But we all do. Just because he had shit happening to him doesn't mean he had any right to say those things in the way he did. Still kind of glad he said them, though, as all the aftermath was hilarious.
my thoughts exactly. chris brown fucked rihanna up and people still hate Ye way more for stealing the mic. i know he should have done that but damn.Brennan said:
