You know, like the Kanye West interruption of Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the MTV Awards show last year.. It’ happened, it’s done, it’s over – it’s been mentioned on television shows, It was mentioned on radio and blogs everywhere. Leave it alone. It’s done. Or is it?
We all remember the event. Obviously Kanye was not happy about Taylor winning an award he believed should have gone to Beyonce’. Taylor remained very calm (under the circumstances), as Kanye grabbed her microphone during her acceptance speech, and began praising Beyonce’, who was obviously more than embarrassed by the whole event.
Now it appears that late-night comedienne, Chelsea Handler, has been selected as this year’s host for the MTV Video Music Awards. And it seems she has this huge idea of putting Kanye and Taylor on stage – together. All this is coming through the grapevine, but here’s what we’ve got so far.
An article at The Boot, says MTV is reporting that Chelsea visited Ryan Seacrest’s radio show to talk about why she’s thrilled about hosting this year and hinted about her plans to reunite Kanye and Taylor. "I’m excited, because it’s such a big hip-hop and rap year, and I just love having those guys on my show. They have the best senses of humor," she said. "I’m hoping we can do some really fun stuff with these A-holes. I want to go and film some ridiculous stuff and see if we can do something with Kanye, because I always talk about Kanye, so he seems like he’d be in on the fun."
Chelsea also said that she would like to be able to persuade Taylor to “play along.” My question to the late-night comedienne is “Why?” Why would you want to do that? Why can’t you leave the whole thing alone. I know Taylor is a sweet girl. I love her to death. She puts on a great show, and she is probably one of the nicest entertainers in country music. But this isn’t the kind of thing you try to patch up on stage a year later … Chelsea, leave it alone. It’s done!
I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more about this between now and the awards show. The MTV Video Music Awards Show will be broadcast live from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, Calif., on Sept. 12, at 9 p.m.
In the meantime, let me know what you guys think. Is this a good idea? Should it be brought up again, or let it just remain part of our history — where I believe it belongs. I don’t think Taylor owes Kanye the satisfaction of standing next to him on stage ever again. … Oh, I did say I wasn’t the kind of person who holds a grudge, didn’t I? Maybe I should rethink that statement.
More later! Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!
