Stephen Colbert is the true voice of 'our' generation by the way!
Colbert said it best with a certain quote about West
Warning for language content
I think that comment sums it up best
Surprisingly, I thought that this was one of the better VMAs of recent memory (even though, I'm still not fully sold on Russell Brand). Moving back to New York and Radio City Music Hall helped. Also, just about everybody "killed" it with their performances. You can tell that there was a lot of imagination and energy put forth. I guess in a odd way, I can deal with the Kayne West meltdown because that gave us the obligitory, "unpredictable" or wild moment of the VMAs.
MTV I think, has made the mistake of trying too experiment too much with the VMAs in recent years. There were those years where they had the processed video (meaning that although it was shot on video tape and live, it gave off a cinematic, filmed quality), which was incredibly distracting. Then, the held it in Miami and later Las Vegas (the one involving the infamous Britney Spears performance). The Las Vegas one, was one of the weaker VMAs that I can recall, in large part because the production in general, felt too downsized and frantic.
It's the best one since 2000, in my opinion.
DAMN straight! Stephen Colbert put it best about Kanye; "Sir, you are not the voice of this generation of this decade. In fact, with all the auto-tuning on your records, you’re barely the voice of your own albums."
On the bright side, Kanye's latest stupidity should give Sir Stephen Colbert more ammunition against him. I look forward to him roasting his ass on the Colbert Report.
Kanye is a heel. He was foul for doing what he did to that poor girl.
You do all realize that all of it was just an act. The entire MTV awards ceremony is scripted just like any television show. I didn't believe it for a minute when I saw it.
He's got a point. How the heck did he get on stage so quickly and everything else? It just seemed too well-timed for it to be actually real. Just like the whole Eminem/Bruno BS they tried to feed everyone, this will come out to be fake at some point.
I'd like to think that it was staged, but Kanye has done stuff like this before.
Taylor looked genuinely shocked and couldn't say a word. And MTV didn't even give her a chance to say something and just rushed her backstage. If it were the MTV movie awards it might've been possible.
I agree on what happened with kanye west. I thought it was very disrespectful and in bad taste.
I'm 99.9% sure that it was real. Kanye and Amber Rose, his date, were escorted out of the building after his outburst and Taylor Swift looked genuinely shocked. Plus the transition afterwards was REALLY akward like the producers were scrambling to figure out what they should do. The show may be scripted but there's always room for ad libs.
By the way, am I the only one who thinks that Kanye was a little more than tipsy when this happened? Not that that excuses his behavior.
WTF, Lady Gaga. How is your music poppy with costumes like this?
In fact, look at Eminem, it's like he's used to this crap!
Oh wait, Bruno already got him, so maybe he should be used to this...
That Kanye bit pissed me off and amused me at the same time.
Also, Lady Gaga is an insane attention whore. (I really lost a lot of respect for her with the lyrics from her new song 'i want to sit on your disco stick' ugh. No class at all.) I love Em's expression in that pic. The thought bubble I added is probably what he was thinking at that moment.
I already said it before, Em's been in worse situations than this.
The VMA's and the Movie Awards are not the same. Actors are not as crazy as musicians. The VMA's have a history of this sort of stuff. Plus, Kanye has done this before. He did it at the MTV European VMA's a few years ago. So, he's famous for it already. The reason people are so upset, even though he's notorious for it, is because he did it to Taylor Swift, a sweet teenage girl. She didn't deserve that.
Here's something that I just found on Superherohype.com:
Lil Mama came up on stage at the end of Jay-Z and Alicia Key's performance in case you're wondering.
I smell South Park parody.
Well I haven't posted since before the show, so i'll recap what I thought about it.
The Michael tribute was nice, and I liked how Russel wanted to "honor" him by telling everyone to love one another. (Although that didn't exactly work out )
Anyways Lady Gaga just made me love her so much more. Yeah her performance was "weird" and her outfits were "strange", but that's art. And in her performance you could really feel the passion she has for what she does. I loved every part of it. I think what she did last night will be known as one of the "famous" VMA performances.
I loved all of the performances on the show. Jay-Z's, Pink's, and obviously Lady Gaga's were probably my favorites.
Regardless of Kanye West's antics, it isn't like that Beyonce video in question was remotely ingenious or innovative. Kanye is acting like the video is up there with "Thriller" or "November Rain". Beyonce pretty much borrowed elements from old Bob Fosse routines ("Mexican Breakfast" in particular) for the "Single Ladies" video.
You know, it's funny, South Park usually has their mid-season breaks sometime from spring to October, yet it's all of the months inbetween where all of the good news outbreaks occur. Michael Jackson and Farrah Faucett's death, Wilson's "You Lie!", Patrick Swaze's death, and now this.
Considering how fast it takes Stone and Parker to make an episode of SP (5 days), this material would've been gold for them.
