Kanye West Taylor Swift Controversy Staged

Kanye West Taylor Swift

Was Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the VMAs staged?

It turns out both artists have the same agent, David Wirtschafter. Not only that but David Wirtschafter is also 50 Cents agent.

If you remember, a year ago there was a beef between 50 Cent and Kanye West right before their albums dropped. 50 Cent said he would retire if Kanye sold more albums then him because Kanye’s music is garbage. Later both artists admitted the “beef” was staged to promote their album releases.

So Kanye and Wirtschafter have faked a controversy in the past to help promote another artist who he represents. Also isn’t it a little suspicious that Kanye was flaunting that Hennessey bottle all night to show that he was getting drunk?

Celebrities are a big business people. Almost everything is controlled. There is just too much money involved.

    I agree with this article, but hate Kanye, any song I ever owned by him has been downloaded, bootleged and distributed by me.

    • meow

        You are silly for a prejudice comment of that nature. To make a comment as if alll people of african desecent act like that. I am not saying what he did was cool at all. But I have seen numerous time on award shows and other events people of all races doing things that are completely stupid that make them look stupid not a whole race…

        People of all races have a bad day do. something stupid every once and a while. unfortunately the error is being human and everyone is that. HUMAN. His mother just passed what he need to do is deal with that.. heal get better and do music… do I like all his music…. no… but some people do just like some people like Swift… it is all hollywood… people want to be seen heard etc… point blank…

        HOPEFULLY YOU EVOLVE … and remember that thinking is lame and we are not in the middle of the early 1800s… PEACE

  • Jim

    Whether or not the Kanye debacle was staged, is a moot point. He’s stiil a douche who’s music sucks! Take away his digital processor & he’s a guy with a cup in his hand at the bus station.

    • Vinroxwell

      if you really think kanye is not talented, you don’t know anything about hip hop. he’s a jackass, yes, but his production and arrangement is superb.

      • SacSha

        please do not call what he (i refuse to utter the word he uses to identify himself aka his name) does as hip hop. its R&B = Rap & Bullshit!!!!

        • The Truth

          “its R&B = Rap & Bullshit!!!!”

          That has to be the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard in my life. It wasn’t even funny or clever.


          • fuck you

            kanye is hip hop when hip hop was going down the drain garduation brang it back up dumbass

  • yeah

    yeah fuck you jim and lab YOU STUPID INTERNET FUCKS GODAMN KILL YOURSELF you stupid christian all that negative energy

  • kanyesajackass

    this is stupid. A result of somebody in Kanye West’s camp trying to spin this. Nobody would stage an act that makes them look like the biggest douchebag in the history of the world. 50 cent saying he’d retire ’cause Kanye West’s music sucks doesn’t make him look like a douche, just makes him look like a rapper with good taste.

    West would never agree to sabotaging his career, and Swift wouldn’t ruin her moment either. Besides, how could they know she’d win?

    Stupid article.

    • Genius

      You don’t know what you are talking about. First off MTV will guarantee a win if a big artist agrees to perform at the show. Thus Taylor Swift winning Best Female over Beyonce yet Beyonce winning Best Video, which makes no sense.

      Kanye’s career has been slipping for a while now, he needed to do something to generate buzz. His agent probably told him “pretend to get drunk, then when Taylor wins Best Female, jump on stage and say Beyonce should have won” it would be a much talked about “Kanye moment”. He probably didn’t anticipate the backlash it would cause.

    • Jake the Ripper

      Actually, some people would do things that make them look like “the biggest douchebag in the history of the world” on purpose, to get free publicity (which is exactly what this article, and innumerable other blogs and conversations have been doing since the event in question…. The people who would stage such a controversy are fame whores. They are jack-asses. They are determined to keep their names on peoples minds and lips for as long as they possibly can…. Kanye West seems to be just such a person.

    • The Truth

      The list of winners had already been leaked two days before.

      And why not? Attention is still attention. What, you think this is the end of Kanye’s career? HAHAHA!

      Kayne’s career isn’t going to end because he interrupted Taylor Swift; it didn’t end when he did the shit years ago, and it isn’t going to end now. He didn’t hit her or anything, and people are turning Kanye West into Chris Brown, who got off TOO DAMN EASY.

      All this proves what? To people who are fans of Kanye, this means nothing/is nothing new. They’re going to continue to buy his albums, much like how people like Elvis Costello goes around calling famous black folks “n****r” and still gets paid. To people who already hated Kanye, hated rap, thought Kanye was a racist or has a pre-existing prejudice against Blacks- this is just giving them a reason. This only reaffirms what we already know: Kanye is good at looking like a douche. In a sense, through the perceived backlash, he really didn’t lose. As a matter of fact, talking about him is what he probably wants us to do.

      Then Taylor Swift gains good momentum off this and exposure, all being positive. Beyonce just looks like a saint, now.

      I mean, really: How do you know Taylor Swift was crying backstage. Were you there? Did you see her crying? Get real, people. You are “identifying” with these celebrities and they are all actors; highly paid actors, at that.

      The moment you believe anything from MTV is real is when you know we need a reality check.

  • Yeah’s Mama

    Yo Yeah – Jim is right. He’s nothing more than a wannabe. His music sucks and so do you. Go back to school and get your GED…

  • Travis Simmons

    I thought the whole thing was staged, and staged really, really well! I went out with a camera trying to find anyone who would support Kanye and they only one I could find was this guy – – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kux4htAGfzk

  • Dead Ed


    Yo, rap sucks

    Ya know what I’m sayin’?









    Mutha fucka!



    I’m DEAD!

    It’s all stoopid.

      Ignorant fuck!

      You A Punk Bitch And Whatever The Fuk You Listen To Is Fuckin Wack Pussy

  • shatzie

    It was all staged! Yes, they share an agent. Next all the people involved have an interest. MTV would not “let” anyone Bum rush the stage and air it… next the camera’s were so ready to be on Beyonce who’s hubby Jay Z just collaborated with Kanye, so she had her chance to look like a saint and boost her ratings. The next night Kanye was all set to appear on Jay Leno’s Season opener, which had off the chart ratings….everybody came out a winner…all the stations the next day here in LA were either playing Kanye or Swift and giving away Her Guitar’s autographed…. all a little to Hollywood. Just like Sacha Cohen and Eminem…everything in Hollywood is fake!!!! including my Tits!

    • bobthebuilder

      the cameras were on her because she was nominated. they had cameras on pink and taylor swift too. they do that at all the award shows because they dont wanna give away who wins and so that the ppl at home can see the reactions of the ppl who lost. dont talk shit if u have no idea wats going on. and nobody gives a shit about ur “tits”

  • Bob

    Very interesting post. Provocative!. If this was staged, Swift’s hyper rising star will fall like an angel to Earth… or lower places. She didn’t tug on America’s heartstring, she ripped them out. America responded, “Love for Taylor” even up to the office of the President.

    From picking the “The Star-Spangled Banner” as her entre into music, to moving to Memphis, Tennessee to be at the center of Country, to selecting Tim McGraw as the centerpiece of her first big song, all does not sit well with me. I’ll wait for the truth… and the truth will come out.

    Personally I love Swift. I hate West because he is a racist to the center of his core. Time will tell.

  • Holly

    Taylor Swift would not agree to do this. Seriously? She doesn’t need publicity, she’s doing just fine promoting her amazing music.

  • Bob

    I agree Holly that Taylor doesn’t need the publicity. I also believe that she doesn’t understand the full scope of how a stunt like this, if it was a stunt, plays out on America.

    But just one year ago I would never believe Miley would be pole dancing… and there she was. Just one year ago I would never believe Taylor Momsen would be singing in sexy underwear. {You folks find the pics cause I won’t supply a link}… yet there she was.

    Power and wealth is intoxicating. Miley made $25 mil. last year. Taylor Swift is worth approx. $100 mil. Taylor arrived at the VMA in a princess fairy carriage declaring herself princess {Hello Michael Jackson}

    I don’t believe these teens control what they do. Their agents, power & money hungry parents will do anything. All they have to do is teach the kids to read the script. I truely hope this isn’t the case here. Time will tell.

  • Haven

    “she’s doing just fine promoting her amazing music.”

    I realize that some people simply have bad taste. Really. But honestly, do you really think that the drivel that swifts songwriters(she’d better not be making that puke on CD herself) is really that good. Hell, ANYONE can get a VMA. what you have here is just 2 desperate pop artists trying to make reality TV on MTV.

  • jvibez

    wtf do you mean by black people are ignorent you dont know what your fucking talking aboutt theirs no point of you even talking you peice of shitt if you a hater get the fuck outta here no one wants your stupid ass here anyways

    What rap is and why it sucks

    Rap is that distinct horrible music that you constantly hear at your highschool, or on the street if you live in a city, or on the radio, or on TV. It can be identifyed by the “drum” beat that continually loops over and over. Often, listeners of rap identify the quality of a rap “song” by how “phat” its beat is, or something like that.

    Another major characteristic of rap, is the stupid lyrics that a bunch of “bad ass muthas” try to sing over the equally stupid drum machine and synthesizers. These lyrics are basically always about how they just busted a phat cap in their homeez azzes. Or about how “life is hard in the ghetto”. Nobody gives a crap how life is in the ghetto, last time I was in the ghetto my wallet got stolen, so shut the hell up.

    Other crap I Hate About Rap

    Theres lots of other stuff about rap I hate. For one thing, its the horrible glamorization of it and its “artists”. For example, I’d like any rap fan out there to tell me who wrote the music to any rap song (and none of those freaking cheap puffy songs count, cause he always just uses other peoples music, thus ruining the original song because his new “lyrics” suck). I mean who wrote the MUSIC, not the lyrics, which are written by the stupid ass rappers. I’ll tell you who wrote the music, a bunch of people you’ve never heard of in your life, and never will, who know how to operate drum machines and computers. Basically, the rap “artist” asks them to make a real “phat” beat, they do so until its “phat” enough, then the rapper dubs in the lyrics over it. Ever notice that at rap “concerts” theres about 30 people in the background, aside from the stupid rapper and the 90 backup dancers, that you’ve never seen in your life? Those would be the people I’m talking about. But of course, the rap “artist” always gets 100% credit for their new “song”. However, I can tell you exactly who wrote both the lyrics and music to say, the Metallica song “The Call of Ktulu”. The 4 (original) members of Metallica did, and they played the song themselves, with actual instruments (REAL drums, for example). I would like to see any rap “artist” pick up any real instrument and do anything impressive with it. Oh but wait, I made a mistake, “The Call of Ktulu” doesn’t have lyrics, because its whats called an instrumental song. Of course in the rap world, nobody knows what the hell that means. Theres no instrumental rap songs, cause they would be freaking boring as hell. And theres not a single rapper or rap fan who can appreciate the talent it took to record a song like The Call of Ktulu.

    Dead Rappers

    The Notorious F.A.T and Deadpac. You know who I’m talking about. Their retarded music is what killed them. If they weren’t rappers they would still be alive, not that I would give a crap. The whole west side\east side thing, that whole stupid deal started cause of rap. Its stupid, who gives a poo about the “east side” or “west side”. God knows I dont. I dont think in the history of metal and rock any artist has ever been murdered. Except for John Lennon I suppose, but that had nothing to do with his music, the murderer was just insane. And then theres the people who claim Deadpac is still alive. Oh my god, he is NOT still alive, would you still be alive if you got SHOT IN THE HEAD, no! Here is why I believe he is dead: murder —> autopsy –> funeral.

    Real Music

    Real music is defined as: not FREAKING rap! Basically, I consider any music that isn’t rap\pop\techno to be real music. Any music played with instruments is real music. I’m not saying I like ALL real music, but I’m saying it’s a hell of a lot better than any rap. I like metal and “classic” rock. Like Metallica, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Rush, Allman Brothers, Jimi Hendrix and Lynyrd Skynyrd. These are actual bands, these bands wrote their own music, played their own music, and it took a hell of a lot of talent to do it. And if your a rap fan, please don’t try to argue that rap is better just cause of the ‘rapping’. Who the hell cares if there isn’t some gangster spitting out lyrics wicked fast, theres a lot more to good music than that. Metallica of course, is still around, and has been since 1983, and they still kick ass. Black Sabbath has been around for almost 30 years, can you name one rapper that lasts that long? Can you name one rapper who has more than 2 or 3 successfull songs? I doubt it. Take Ricky Martin for example, he’s not rap, but he’s glammy pop crap, do you think your still even gonna know who he is a year from now? Probably not

    • Stoofdawg

      You’re entitled to your opinion. I like most forms of music, mainly dnb, dubstep, electro, hiphop, ska, punk, metal, lounge.. Kanye himself makes a lot of phat beats as you call them for other artists. His career starte out as Jay Zs “knob twiddler” if you will.. A rap artist with more than 3 hits? Jay Z, Pharrell Williams, Beastie Boys, Kanye West, Puff Daddy Diddy P, Busta Rhymes, Cypress Hill.. Want me to go on? Rappers have talent, the same as Hetfield and co. do, they write some pretty deep lyrics at times, and sometimes not. Even your beloved Metallica cover So What, which isn’t groundbreaking lyrics.
      You get many instrumentals in rap/hiphop. Jurassic 5, MF Doom, Ugly Duckling etc made a good few. The backing tracks often use real instruments. Outkast are very talented on this front. With dance music a lot of work goes into making tracks. Your narrow minded view of lumping it together as “Techno” shows me you have little or no knowledge on the subject and can not really make a point on the matter.
      Ricky Martin has been around for at least 10 years, so that’s another correction for you. I’m not belittling your beloved metal, I love Tool, Opeth, Deftones, and Guano Apes to name a few. But different people like different things. A rap fan could say “all metal sounds the same because of the intro verse chorus verse chorus guitar solo chorus pattern. All punk sounds the same because of the “3 chords”.. If someone badmouthed your style, you’d call them narrow minded, idiotic, or more than likely “gay”. Just let other styles exist. I personally hate hard house, but I don’t seek out fans and lamblast it to them.
      Sure guns and rappers ended badly with BIG and Tupac, but rap has moved on. There are some hughely talented lyricists out there, you just need to give them a chance. I won’t force it on you though, just like you shouldn’t try to force Sabbath, Tallica, or Zep down peoples throats.

      • Dead Ed

        I grew up on both rap/hip-hop and metal.

        When Biggie and 2pac left, that’s when I left. It’s all stupid now.

        “Throw your hands in the air, and wave ’em like you just don’t care”

        It’s never changed. My grandmother was doin that when she was a teen.

        I did it at a club one time, and I felt silly.

        What the fuck was I doing at a club anyway? I DON’T KNOW! The chicks that go there, yeah, they look good, but they’re REALLY stupid and uneducated. And I tell it to their face when they can’t converse with me, because they’re braindead-Obamabot-zombies.

  • cange

    Perhaps I’m just an old paranoid ex-hippie, but I think it may have been staged not (only) for record sales and that stuff, but because of the Joe Wilson thing. It’s crazy, I know, and I guess it’s not too likely that Kanye would be that much of an Uncle Tom, but I just think there are a lot of folks out there (town hall protesters) who are saying “See, black people do it too, so that proves Wilson wasn’t being racist!” and proffesional idea people who knew they could get such a reaction from those people.

    • Dead Ed

      You can’t say that’s what people are saying without backing it up. Before you start slandering the townhall protesters, let me just say that they are protesting his socialist policies. Some voted for him and are now having buyers remorse.

      A large number of whites, more than blacks, voted for him.

      If we were to vote on our race, he wouldn’t be President of the United States.

      Blacks barely made a dent compared to white Barack Obama supporters.

  • FriendNdeed

    1) West and Swift have the same agent. 2) Hip hop and country music has been in a slump. 3) Security for on-camera talent is tight is steel. 4) Jay-Z got sacked by Def Jam and needed to mastermind a comeback stunt 5) Mrs. Jay-Z’s first name is Beyonce. 6) It doesn’t take Oscar-acting skills for Swift to freeze in place and let the audience project shock onto her silence. 7) It doesn’t take Oscar-acting skills for West to answer Leno by covering his face and letting the audience project grief onto his silence. 8) Ever heard a genuinely outraged and drunk rapper say, “Yo Taylor, I’m really happy for you and I’ll let you finish”? 9) The camera conveniently cut away until after the mic grab…. when real acting would have been involved? 10) THE PUBLIC’S REVENGE: The event which inspired this fake incident did nothing for the careers of Bruno or Eminem. It backfired (no pun intended). Look for the same for Swift and West.

  • JJ Jackson

    Staged. Absolutely. Business. Don’t be naive.

    • Dead Ed

      I don’t think so. TS was crying backstage. It’s just not reported.

      it was her 1st award. I don’t think anybody would tarnish their 1st most important moment in their life with a staged selfish act.

      KW is been known to be a racist SON OF A BITCH ! !

      • yic17

        it actually is reported afterward that she was crying backstage with her mother.

    how come i dont see fatbottom or ironfister on here… where the fuck did those guys go

  • jo247


    • Dead Ed

      Even a racist like KW can date a white girl. Every black guy does.

  • Brandy

    Can’t we all just get along?!? How old are you people? Grow up! There is no reason to yell at eachother, Christian or not, black or white?

    Regardless of what really went down, who cares, it is publicity for both camps and everyone has their own opinion and it won’t change what happened.

  • matt23

    Kanye was right or not? Grammy 2010

  • RaWrGoEsMyDiNo

    I really think this was staged.
    Think about it WWE does stuff like this all the time and it looks real. It just seemed too mean. Kayne may be a jackass and he may not be but even if he was I still don’t think he would do it on his own. Maybe i’m wrong but it just seemed too “much”.
    Ever since Kayne gets more fans, Taylor gets more fans and Beyonce gets more fans.
    Win for everyone.
    Just my point of veiw…
