The saddest thing about last night is that I now see both Kanye West and Amber Rose in a new light. I lost two things last night, my respect for Kanye West and my girl crush on Amber Rose. I didn’t lose my respect for Kanye becuase he stole a precious moment from a teen, Taylor Swift.
I lost my respect for Kanye West because he was walking around trying to be something he’s not. I don’t know what was up with the Hennessey bottle, but honestly Kanye you were trying too hard, but you’re not hard. Yes, you have a hood past, but you are not hood. Your mom was a well educated woman who made sure you had a lifestyle of literature and liberal arts, and you are doing a disservice to her and yourself. That’s why people like you because you were a breath of fresh air in a medium dominated by the negative side of urban life, and now you, too want to idolize that lifestyle…
Poor Amber, she just look like an accessory the whole night. It wasn’t just the fact that she wore a python body suit, well that had a lot to do with it, but it was more so how she was presented. I don’t like when men pimp out their women, it’s not attractive look for the woman. In all the pictures she’s hanging on him, or he’s in the background staring at her as she shows off her body. That python suit just wasn’t working at all on some many levels. I am not walking the red carpet competing with a Hennessey bottle no matter what my background is.
Anyway last night turned into a Kanye and Amber Rose night, but not in a good way. But, hey if publicity is what they wanted, they certainly got it… There were other people present, and you can check out the gallery below :
Janet Jackson’s MJ tribute was amazing! It wasn’t her greatest performance but she did her brother justice. I’m sure he would be proud.
The classy lady of the hour, Beyonce, looking stunning!
Solange always switching it up and taking fashion risks! This outfit wasn’t my favorite but cute nonetheless. Funny, she kept tweeting through out the show. At one point she even said she wanted to go home. lol
Jennifer Lopez’s rare appearance since giving birth to twins Max and Emme. She looks great!
Lady Gaga is crazy! But to be honest I loved every minute Funny how she kept changing outfits!
Alicia Keys, beautiful as always. Didn’t like this outfit as much though. She killed her performance with Jay Z on “Empire State of Mind”. If she wasn’t on the hook I don’t think I would like this record.
Keri Hilson. Cute pants suit.
Cassie always looks so beautiful no matter what she wears. But I don’t really like this dress.
I don’t know what to say about this trio, Dirty Money. Another ne of Diddy’s attempts at staying relevant I guess.
Amerie looking stunning. When will we get another album?!
They told me to stand by the side of the stage, and I didn’t really know what was going to go down, but I thought it was so wonderful and gracious of her to do what she’s always done. She’s always been a great person before anything else. Before the talented artist, the superstar, she’s always been a great person and I just, I thought I couldn’t love Beyonce more tonight, than tonight.
Kudos to Beyonce for handling it the way she did, giving Taylor her moment!
