Kanye West for president in 2020: What he really wants is just entertainment
Kanye West knows the art of keeping you on your toes, and still entertained. So the way he came onto the stage amidst massive applause during the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards shouldnâ€™t have surprised anyone.
For a long time he soaked in the thunderous applause that at one point was so powerful that nothing was audible, and then he went on to mesmerize the people assembled there.
Kanye West was given the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award during the last nightâ€™s MTV Video Music Awards. The man who a couple of years ago had created a scene during Taylor Swiftâ€™s acceptance speech was at his eloquent best. It is needless to say that when he ended his ten minute too long speech, he had completely mesmerized the people present there.
While talking on the occasion Kanye West said, he has grown following the birth of his child. â€œBro, bro, listen to the kids. Jeremy, I got to put it down for a second, it’s beautiful, Jeremy Scott designed… First of all, thank you Taylor for being so gracious and giving me this award this evening. And I often think back to the first day that I met you. Also, you know, I think about when I’m in the grocery store with my daughter and I have a really great conversation about fresh juice, you know, and at the end they say, “You’re not that bad after all.” And I think about it sometimes, like it crosses my mind when I go to a baseball game and 60,000 people boo me. It crosses my mind a little bitâ€ said he.
â€œAnd I think, if I had to do it all again, what would i have done? Would I have worn a leather shirt? Would I have drank half a bottle of Hennessy and given the rest to the audience? Y’all know you drank that bottle too. If I had a daughter at that time, would I have went on stage and grabbed the mic from someone else’s…â€, said Kanye West during the long speech
He had more to say â€œYou know this arena, tomorrow, it’s gonna be a completely different set up or something like that. This stage will be gone. After that night, the stage will be gone, but the effect it had on people will remain. The problem was the contradiction. The contradiction is: I do fight for artists, but in that fight I somehow was disrespectful to artists. I didn’t know how to say the right thing, the perfect thing. I just… I sat at the Grammys and saw Justin Timberlake and Cee-Lo lose. Gnarls Barkley and the Future Sex album… Justin, I ain’t trying to put you on blast but I saw that man in tears, bro. And I was thinking like, he deserves to win album of the year. And this small box that we are in as the entertainers of the evening. How could you explain that? Sometimes I feel like, you know, all this bullshit that they run about beef and all that, sometimes I feel like I died for the artist’s opinion. For the artists to be able to have an opinion after they were successful. I’m not no politician, bro. And look at that. You know how many times MTV ran that footage again? ’cause it got them more ratings. You know how many times they announced that Taylor was gonna give me the award? ’cause it got them more ratings. Listen to the kids, broâ€.
