Kanye and Taylor Swift VMA incident revealed as a Hoax
Michael Barber a Hip Hop entrepreneur, signed to Universal Records as an artist, broke the news that Kanye West, Jay-z, and Beyonce all went to Taylor with an elaborate plan to “trick” the MTV audience. Michael Barber broke the news on Monday.
The water cooler talk on Monday was on how, Kanye “The world revolves around me” West, stole the microphone from Taylor Swift during her speech for winning her first moon man at last nights VMA’s.
The reality behind the lack of security and “biggest moment of the night” is, Kanye was probably told to do this. The world didn’t need to know that Kanye was ego driven or that Beyonce probably had a better video. The audience and MTV needed a hero with Taylor and to create a hero, you need a villain.
Kanye isn’t going to lose any of his fan base by attacking a teen country star. He is going to look more the part of a wild hip hop artists by rushing the stage telling the world his opinion.
Beyonce then gets a chance to play heroine besides Taylor at the end of the night. Sasha Fierce did end up winning for her video and during her acceptance speech brings out Ms. Swift now in a matching red dress, surprise!
The night was just as scripted as “reality tv’” proving once again that MTV is about ratings and not music.
