Maybe I just have spent too long watching professional wrestling, but people, here is the truth about Kanye West. He is not a bad guy.
He is the heel.
Do I think Taylor Swift was in on it? No. I don’t. And bless her heart, I’m sure that sucked.
But this is MTV. This is Viacom. This is the company that runs 20 hours of reality tv programming on almost all of their channels in which we can watch the dregs of society compete with each other for the right to fuck has-beens and never-was-es. They let a guy who abused and eventually killed his ex-girlfriend onto two of their shows. You think they wouldn’t publicly embarrassed Taylor Swift in order to get some publicity? They aired a TV show where a woman did shots out of another woman’s cooch.
Believe me, Kanye West was just playing his role and it’s a role I would bet you $100 he was directed to and encouraged to play by MTV.
Think about it.
If MTV wasn’t in on it, why didn’t they cut the mic the second West grabbed it?
