It’s 4 days after the 2009 MTV Music Video Awards, and the Talyer Swift / Kanye incident is still in the news. It’s in the most popular video section on Youtube, it’s been a trending topic on Twitter, and it’s still being shown on the news.
I don’t at all feel bad for Taylor swift. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t agree with Kanye West’s behavior. It was rude, and not called for at all. But honestly it’s what I have come to expect from him. What he did wasn’t shocking at all to me. It’s not the first time he has freaked out at award shows.
But this is why Taylor Swift should be thanking him, because 4 days ago I didn’t know who Taylor Swift was. Companies spend millions of dollars to get a artist name out there, and this stunt got her name on almost every news channel possible, talked about by millions of people on Twitter, and was posted on thousands of blogs.
This stunt wont hurt her career at all. It’s helped! She was a victim of a Kanye attack ( which is probably better then a sex tape ), and she will probably sell more records. What I recommend her to do is, record a new album, and win another award, and thank Kanye West. The media would love this.
As for MTV, no award show should be trying to ban Kanye West from a award show. Invite him, have in in the front row, have a camera on him the whole show, and have a “Will Kanye Blow Up!” meter. Ratings will go up.
MTV got all kind of publicity from this stunt, so they shouldn’t be mad either.
So in the end, everyone won off of this matter. Well, everyone one but Kanye. That was a jack ass move man.
Please share your thoughts.
