Kanye see him making a fool out of himself?


Seconds after Kanye West stormed the stage at the VMAs like a comic book villain and almost stole that glass moon man trophy from little Taylor Swift, there was much Twittering about whether it was a “publicity stunt.”

Um, no.

When a fringe actress shows up on the red carpet dressed like a Marsupial, that’s a publicity stunt.

When a reality show couple gets into a big fight outside the Ivy, that’s a publicity stunt.

When a troubled bimbo exits a limo in a mini-skirt and no panties, that’s a publicity stunt.

But when you’re already one of the world’s most recognizable and successful entertainers, rushing the stage at a secondary awards show and throwing a temper tantrum isn’t a publicity stunt.

It’s just stupid.

Let’s put it this way: if a 10-year-old pulled the same nonsense at a Little League awards ceremony, his parents would be mortified, the other kids would be stunned and you’d want to seek immediate counseling for the child.

Kanye West is 32 years old.
