Kanye West – cunt du jour

Kanye live at Kwikfit

I’ve been aware of Kanye West for a few years now and knew he was a Usanian rapper, but that’s as far as it goes.

I’m not a rap fan, although there are some things I like – particularly the early Grandmaster Flash stuff. I also don’t mind a bit of rap influence, but in general the posturing puts me off.

Anyway, back to Mr West.

It seems he made a bit of a cunt of himself last night.

Rap star Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the MTV Video awards in a dramatic outburst.

The musician stormed the stage to tell the audience Beyonce should have won best female video prize.

The audience jeered, and Beyonce, who won video of the year and two other awards for Single Ladies, later invited Swift back onto the stage to complete her acceptance speech.

He has since apologised.

There’s a video of the incident if you follow the link, and while it’s all pretty low key – West didn’t so much storm the stage as walk on – Kanye really does make a colossal tit of himself.

It reminded me a little of the recent Serena Williams outburst at the US Tennis Open when a call went against her and she just ‘reacted’ in an extraordinary show of petulance.

In both cases, it embarrassed the winners and cast a shadow over what should have been for them a moment to savour but, more importantly, it typified what a bunch of bad losers people in general are becoming.

It was bad enough when Hollie Steel had a tantrum on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ (has it fuck). But at least she was 10 at the time – still too old to throw her fucking toys out of the cunting pram, but not an adult like Kanye and Serena.

I mean, for fuck’s sake, in West’s case it wasn’t even as if he was kicking up about his own video not winning.

Fair enough, kick up a fuss when you meet injustice and suffer when rules are bent against you, but when you’re competing or participating in anything with clearly defined rules or laws that you’ve accepted but don’t like when they go against you, just shut the fucking fuck up and accept that you fucked up, lost, failed, were unlucky, whatever.

If you don’t like the rules, then try and change them, but until they’re changed, just accept them and suck it up if you get on the wrong side of them.
