Right off the bat I want to be clear.  I am not writing a post about Kanye West, and his input in the first video.  You can make up you rown mind on his actions and do not need my thoughts to do so.  However, I am providing the video as background for what comes next.

What came next, in case you missed the VMA awards was a fantastic (in my opinion) show of class by a woman who I (usually) do not give a lot of credit too. Beyonce is not my favorite artist (she is not my least favorite or anything, she just doesn’t do for me what an India Arie does, for example). However, I cannot say enough about how she handled the fall out from the clip above. In fact, I’m not going to try to say anything about it… I’m just going to roll the tape…

That is roll model material… props, Beyonce… eom.

  1. I’d seen the first video, but that’s the first time I’d seen the second. Definitely a classy move.

  2. I don’t really see what the controversy is all about here. I mean, he didn’t say anything negative about Taylor Swift, he just voiced his opinion. Taylor is certainly a mature well grounded girl. Its awesome that Country Music got a mention in VMA’s. I am so lost in this hoopla, I feel Like Temperance Brennan…

  3. Or ‘role’ model material, even. ;)

    I, too, thought the second part of this incident was handled beautifully by Beyoncé. I am not a huge fan of hers – her music just doesn’t speak to me. However, for her to take a step back and allow Taylor Swift to complete her acceptance speech was classy. It actually brought tears to my eyes.

    For “Me” – I don’t think the controversy has anything to do with what Mr. West said; rather, it is about taking the microphone out of someone’s hand in the middle of her speech and taking things in his own direction.
