The Worst Part


I’ve been thinking about the Kanye West/MTV VMAs incident.

As much as it pains me to say it, last night I and most people who talked about it missed the most important point:

Kanye West, in a fit of jealousy and anger, took away what should have been one of the highlights of a nineteen year old girl’s life. VMAs don’t matter to me, but Taylor Swift was clearly thrilled to have won.

Forget rudeness. Forget the low-class behavior. Forget the awful grammar.

Kanye stole a young woman’s moment of pride and happiness.
