Making A Joke About The Stale Nature Of Kanye/Taylor Swift Jokes Is The New Making Kanye/Taylor Swift Jokes


Above, a preview of a promo for this week’s Saturday Night Live, which will feature Taylor Swift performing and hosting. Why do I have a feeling that Swift’s eye-rolling at Bill Hader’s insistence on making a Kanye joke doesn’t necessarily mean that there won’t be three or four or 10 references to the notorious Video Music Awards incident during the 90 minutes of this week’s program? Oh right, because of SNL‘s writing staff, which never met a joke it couldn’t bludgeon to death. [MTV] More »


Taylor Swift Is Sick Of Talking About The Video Music Awards, But Lil Mama Sure Isn’t

90713084-500x3441Unsurprisingly, the news cycle of Kanye West’s interruption of Taylor Swift at the 2009 Video Music Awards stretched into a second week, with some morning-radio DJ pressing and pressing the issue during an interview with Swift while she primly asked him to please talk about something, anything else. He, being of the clueless mook ilk, refused, so finally, instead of letting him finish—during which the DJ was apparently going to ask Swift for a psychological evaluation of the design-conscious MC—she basically handed the phone to her publicist and said “you deal with him, because I sure don’t want to anymore.” This is the same young lady who everyone felt needed rescuing a scant eight days ago? Seems like she has at least some moxie. Clip after the jump. More »


50 Cent Tries To Play The Part Of “The Sensitive One”

fiftycentThe Kanye West/Taylor Swift/Beyonce kerfuffle from Sunday night’s Video Music Awards is theratening to take over the entire work week, with the outspoken MC yesterday calling the blonde country singer to apologize after she appeared on the morning yakfest The View and people still looking for the damn thing on YouTube. (All this post-publicity, it should be said, isn’t really helping dampen my cynicism about the whole thing.) Who better to bring up the rear on a big old manufactured media event than 50 “Curtis Jackson” Cent, who in flusher times two years ago tried to hold his own against Kanye sales-wise and failed—and who yesterday appeared on Canadian music channel MuchMusic to defend Swift’s honor?

MTV Host Gives MTV News “Exclusive” Scoop On Her Actions At MTV Video Music Awards

lilmamaMeanwhile, the post-Video Music Awards mea culpas continued with pint-sized MC Lil Mama’s statement on her joining Jay-Z and Alicia Keys onstage at the end of Sunday night’s show, which honestly might have been more notable for how many people said “really? huh, I missed that” in its aftermath than for anything that actually happened. “I did not mean any disrespect towards Jay-Z or Alicia Keys,” she said in a statement released to MTV. (Who, by the way, employ her as host of their dance-off show America’s Best Dance Crew.) “I admire them and look up to them as role models. ‘Empire State of Mind’ had my emotions running high. In that moment I came up onstage to celebrate my two icons singing about NY.” Somehow, she didn’t manage to mention that her latest song—which leaked, OMG, yesterday!—is out. And funnily enough for someone who tried to engage in a little spotlight-stealing, it’s called “See Me Everywhere”! I mean, what are the odds? More »
