He wasn’t at the VMA’s as Lane Brown explains in a recent New York magazine article.  But Brown also latches onto a good point, which is that Kanye had a point when he made an interruption so rude that it made Obama-heckler Joe Wilson look sane.  The VMA’s are kinda B.S. and Taylor Swift really didn’t deserve the award over Beyonce and the fact of the matter is that nowadays, the VMA’s mostly exist for incidents like this (remember Eminem’s stunt on the last show?).  Then again, how many entertainment award shows really pick the best all the time?  And with the advent of YouTube and amateur video, how relevant are the VMA’s otherwise?
