This is a bit of a long one, but Yeezy is talking some sense here. Peep dude speaking to the media on Michael Jackson, being cheated at award shows, Taylor Swift, George Bush and more. Really cool shit.

Y'all should know by now that Mr. Mayer is possibly one of my favourite artists of all time. Yeah, the dude needs to shut his mouth from time to time, but on a musical level, his brand of acoustic pop/rock is fucking flawless. Managed to catch the dude live on his recent Australian tour and he was even better than the last time I saw him.
Anyway, I'll just get off his dick for second to tell y'all about the new video for his third single off 'Battle Studies', 'Half Of My Heart'. This joint features Miss Taylor Swift on two lines just shy of the 3 minute mark, not earning even earning her a visit to the video set. And rightfully so, silly broad she is. Cool video, not my fave song off the album ('Assassin' and 'Perfectly Lonely' are goddamn masterpieces), but should bode well. Carry on.
Didn't take long did it? Go on TV for a quick apology and what have you got? Plenty of publicity and not too many extra haters. Well, not a lot more than dude already had, anyway.
This is almost old news already, not just because it happened on MTV and has been all over various media but because its Kanye - "the only player that got robbed but kept all his jewellery". I'm surprised anyone even cares, to be honest. The man has carefully crafted a reputation for throwing tantrums at award shows.
Most awards are already irrelevant anyway, but the VMAs have got to be somewhere near the bottom of the list. Who gives a toss? I'd say that Kanye needs to realise these award shows are nothing more than a back-slapping public relations exercise, but I think he probably gets that. After all, why else would a teenage girl who likely had nothing to do with artistic direction of a music video be accepting the award for it? If it wasn't clear before, I'm pretty sure the man is knowingly highjacking a farcical PR event and taking all the attention for himself. Then again, maybe he is just an impulsive idiot.
Kanye already apologised for the interruption on http://www.kanyeuniversecity.com/blog/.
