Outbursts

Celebrities are TRASHING Kanye West's outburst during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.  Serena Williams caught a lot of bad press for her outburst during the U.S. Open, and the U.S. House of Representatives is considering a vote on whether it disapproves of Rep. Joe Wilson's outburst during President Obama's health care speech.

When you're a public figure and you speak out against something, cameras are rolling, millions of eyes are watching, and your career can be affected - sometimes positively, often negatively.  It's similar to what you face in school if you speak out, whether it's in a class, at a game, at a classmate or at a teacher.

Is there a time when you think speaking out is appropriate, or is it better to hold your tongue?  When and how is speaking out acceptable?  When isn't it?

    I feel that Kanye West's outburst at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards was immature and unnecessary. He should apologize and then just forget about the whole thing.

    Speaking aloud may or may not be appropriete. What Kayne West did was wrong, and that is definately a circumstance that he should have kept his mouth shut. Otherwise, if you think it's something nice to say, then say it. But doesn't anyone remember the phrase "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say it at all" anymore??
    Speaking is a way of expressing feelings, but there is such things as mannors.

    I think that Kanye West's outburst at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards was immature and unnecessary. He should apologize and Forget about the whole thing. Serena Williams shouldn't have did what she did, but it's sports everyone in sports gets frustrated and has an outburst at some point. I also think that Rep. Joe Wilson should not have called the president a liar, but look at the plus side; he didn't throw a shoe.

    I believe that if you have something to say against something or someone that you should talk about it during the right time or in private, not when that one little comment you make could get you in ALOT of trouble...

    I depends on who or what it is directed at, and what your speaking out about. For an example, let's use Kanye West's outburst. That was EXTREMELY inappropriate- Taylor Swift had won the award and was about to make her speech, and he took that away by interupting and claiming another music video to be better. But like I said, it just depends.

    At school, a lot of times when a student tries to speak out their opinion, they are repremanded and told to be quiet. Other times, it is the student being out of control, loud, disruptive, ect. ect. ect. It varies.

    First of all, Kanye is an idiot and shouldn't have ruined Taylor's moment. As a celebrity it is especially important to watch what you say, because in a moment of minutes, everyone in the country can find out. Sure, maybe the press doesn't always highlight the good things celebs say, but sometimes, you just need to hold your tongue. Everyone has his or her own opinion, but there's no need to share it in front of the whole world if its hurtful. However, lets give it up for Taylor and Beyonce for taking this whole thing in a great way. Kanye could've just let Taylor have her moment, and complimented Beyonce later. As Katy Perry basically said, "IT'S LIKE U STEPPED 0N A KITTEN"; its just cruel!

    i think when its something that will change the world in a good way we should speak, but when its not dont try to get it worse!!!

    The outbursts made by Kanye West, Wilson, and Williams all have on thing in common: pure disrespect. They need to keep their mouths zipped and control themselves in such public places. Kanye West was extremely rude - Taylor Swift is very young and was probably looking much forward to the awards. She's really grateful to be at the VMAs and gives the audience a thankful speech. Then suddenly, Kanye West pops out of nowhere and makes a distasteful interruption. Way to make her cry.
    Sure, Kanye had some great songs that I really liked, but it's just disappointing.

    they are both dumb and dont even deserve an award.

    Kanye was just RUDE!!! I watched the whole thing live from MTV and it's awful. I'm Beyonce's fan of course but does it mean K. West should get in and interrupt the merry sight?
    As to the question I think public outbursts are not to be controlled. Of course Rep. Joe Wilson was putting his toes out of the line but hey this is the free United States of America and everyone has to say what he or she has gotta say. I mean zipping mouthes is almost like the society of North Korea.

    P.S. West, if you were proposing to Beyonce, get your head out of the cloud. I've sent her a million fan note and all I got was a health care bill.

    In a democracy, you get to speak freely. But the law doesn't say interrupting's acceptable too. I think you're suppose to disagree or add a comment after someone speaks. So, people shouldn't interrupt other people.

    I think what Kanye did may be unacceptable, but he has an ego and people need to begin to get used to Kanye being Kanye.

  15. Nikk

    I think that Kayne West was out of character because Beyonce won the best music video. So all in all he was just out of his mind and Taylor Swift was very kind about it and she didn't overreact. I also think it may have been staged by MTV for the publicity which is what is happening.

    It is an appropriate time to speak and there are those times when you need to hold your tongue, what Kanye did was one of those times he should have held his tongue, and when you speak out do it respectfully, don't be rude, and prime example Kanye West.

    What Kanye West did was Wrong and he needs to say that he is sory for what he did.

  18. Tim

    I think the Kanye West should not have interupted Taylor Swift in the middle of her speech and make her feel terrible. He should've kept that between himself and Beyonce. Kanye is a jerk for interrupting Taylor Swift, and no matter how many times he apologizes, he should never be forgiven.

    I think Kanye did the wrong thing by interupting Taylor Swifts speech. It was really disrespectful and should had kept his mouth closed. if you have nothing nice to say dont say it at all

    What Kanye did was awful! Taylor Swift won and Kanye cannot change that. Kanye should keep his mouth SHUT! No one cares that Kanye thinks beyonce won! More people voted for taylor and Taylor won fairly so taylor won and thats that!

  26. Valeriya

    What Kayne West did was very inappropriate, and stupid. He should have let Taylor Swift have her moment. If he really wanted to say what he said, he should have said it to reporters later or something. He should be ashamed.

  27. sam

    I think that Kanye West should not have done what he did! It is wrong to go and ruin someone elses night. So im going to say the old saying, if you dont have any thing nice to say, well, just dont say anything at all! Even if West thought she did not deserve the reward, he should NOT embarrass her at all. And he even embarrassed himself, i mean he's all over the news. Like i said do not speak wrong of someone, especially if its in front of cameras and people.

    September 15, 2009 at 9:11 am |
  28. Andrew

    Kanye is an idiot. He has done stuff like this before and this just put it over the top. Saying Beyonce had a better music video right in front of Taylor's face. I'm suprised Taylor didn't slap him. Taylor's a great artist, and my sister practically loves her. I think Kanye needs a "time out."

    I think that Kayne West speaking out to everyone was innaproperate because taylor swift won she made the speech and kayne west said that beyonce should of won

  30. Claire

    I think that sometimes people need to speak out of what they think to make a better world. But Kanye West's comment was not really needed, about saying that Beyonce had the best video. Serena Williams said what she thought about losing that point and she did put some bad language into that, but she had lots of pressure on her.The senator's outburst about saying "LIAR!" during President Obama's health care speech was probaly the worst outburst out of all three outbursts.

    I think that Kanye West spoke out in a negative way and no one should speakout like that. You should speak out when its important but when it's a situation like that you should keep your mouth shut.

  33. zobia

    Kanye shouldn't have just interrupted Taylor. She got her award, and that was her first time coming to an VMA award, and when she won. She was happy, it was her moment, but Kanye came in and just bursted her bubble. It wasn't fair, and he shouldn't have done that. She was just trying to say thnaks and all he did was probably really offended Taylor, and everyone else for country music. If he really wanted Beyonce to know that he liked her video better than Taylor's he could've just told her another time, not at the moment where Taylor was speaking. I think that the only time that someone should speak or outburst if it's like everyone else is talking or if it is an open conversation. It wasn't ! It was the time where Taylor was on stage, adn she was happy. I also think if he wants to outburst he should've at least said it in a nice way.

    Speaking out is one of the best ways to interact with people. Sometimes you may have to speak out for help, or have something to share. If what you are about to say is rude, then I think that then you should keep it inside of your mouth, and head, and just keep it to yourself. If what you are going to say is sweet and nice, then go ahead! Say what you want! But Kanye West ruined Taylor Swift's huge moment when she was winning her trophy. Speaking out to someone is acceptable only when it is a compliment, or something nice to someone. Even though what Kanye said to Beyonce was a great compliment, he still shouldn't have interrupted her special time. speaking out should not be rude or mean, but I believe that Kanye's and Joe Wilson's comments were not needed. It is very disappointing to know that many people love Kanye, and that his outburst may make him unwanted in being famous.

    I think it was rude that Kanye West because he acted stupid and Talor Swift and Beyonce wanted that award. They to keep trying to get that award so they can be better than Kanye. Kanye thought he was better than the rest of the fans. I will always been kind to every pop stars that songs are really cool.

  37. Josh

    I think that none of them should have unnecessary outburts in any of their speeches. They were being plain rude. Kanye West and Joe Wilson both had things in common they were both rude. Kanye West was rude to Taylor Swift and Joe Wilson was rudde to President Obama. If you have something bad to say don't say it at all.

    September 15, 2009 at 9:18 am |

    i think it was ok that kanye thought beyonce's music video was better but he shouldnt have argued on it also the camers were rolling and it wasnt right. not only did he embaress beyonce he embaressed taylor swift he ruined her night he should have just accepted she won andbeyonce didnt.

    I think what Kanye West did to Taylo0r Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards was TERRIBLE and OBNOXIOUS! Who would do that!?! Beyonce won many awards and it was Taylor's turn. I mean yes Kanye is a good artist, but he isn't a good person. When Beyonce won an award I think what she did for a Taylor was really nice. Kanye makes great music, but he is all computerized while Taylor is all natural.

  41. Matt

    Kanye West is...RUDE!!!!!!! Kanye needs to grow up. He should say he is sorry to Taylor Swift and the public! He is a disgrace!!!!! I used to think he was an amazin artist but i dont think that anymore because of what he did at the MTV music choice awards he acted like a todler if they didnt get a toy. He is a disgrace to the music world. Kanye shouldnt get ANY awards for anything now. He has acted like this before but now it should stop!!!!! Kanye does have some good songs that i like by him but now i dont like him as a person. Kanye should leave Taylor Swift alone and stop acting like he is a baby. Now i realized he embarresed Beyonce in fronjt of the crowd at the music choice awards and in front of the millions of people who were watching it at home...HE IS A DISGRACE!!!!!!

    All you have to do is to try your best and keep trying. Practice makes Perfect!!!!!!! And that's what Taylor Swiff and Beyonce did that, and i was proud of both pf them.

    If Kanye west is smart enough to make songs and videos, he should be smart enough to know that what he did was kindergarden stuff. To go up on stage take the micraphone from her hands and to congradulate someone else, he must be one pathetic nut case. I used to like a couple of his songs, but now, things will change. I will now always think of him as mean, rude, obnoxiouse, and WRONG!!! Thats all i can say about it. Oh and Taylor swift, poor thing, i feel so bad for her. Point is hold your toung in public.

    September 15, 2009 at 9:29 am |
  45. Dominique

    Although freedom of speech isn't illegal, interrupting someone during their acceptance speech is on a whole other level, I could understand that he wanted beyonce to win, but he could have kept that to himself and just told her (beyonce) in private, instead of depriving someone of their "moment", the blaming it on their mothers death that happened over two years ago.

    On celebrities speaking out...
    Speaking out is an imature, inappropriate and rude thing to do. However, unless someone tells you or asks you to share your opinion or to speak out you should always have manners and be kind.

    I dont think that was nessary of him to do. He should have gone up to her and said that to her instead of shouting it out loud.

  49. KhaJada

    I think what Kanye West did at the award show was disrespectful and rude. Taylor swift is just a teen and it is hard for a country singer to get a VMA. she did an he took it away from her.

  50. Mrs. K's class

    We feel it is not appropriate to have outbursts when you publically hurt someones feelings.Kanye West also embarrassed her on TV.
    If we are on the soccer fields and the ref makes a wrong call, it is appropriate to shout out in a nice manner to offer a suggestion because maybe the ref did not see it clearly. It is never appropriate to yell or use foul language or to embarass someone.

  51. Shavia

    Being up front and honest I really don't care what happened between Kanye West and Taylor Swift. I mean not trying to be rude but he just stated his opinion and that was on his mind. So it really doesn't matter.

    September 15, 2009 at 10:13 am |
  52. Kacie

    He should've held his outburst til an interview later if he felt the need to say anything at all, and apparently he did..... Any one else that would do what he did would've been thrown out!! He deserved the same thing. Seriously, did he do this just so he'd get attention? I wouldn't want this kind of attention, that's fur sure. He's just being plain disrespectful.... It's a shame...

    i think that what kayne did was abosolutly rude. he shouldn't have stated his opinion like that, he could have waited and told beyonce that he thought she had the best video after the award show. that would've been nicer and just more polite. serena was just mad at herself, nothing big. and the senator i could really care less about.

    September 15, 2009 at 10:16 am |
  55. Victoria

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but you can take it so far as to how you express it. Kanye West should not have gotten on stage and said what he said. He did not have to take the microphone from her. And how did he even get on the stage so fast?

    September 15, 2009 at 10:16 am |
  56. Sarah

    There are no good times to have an outburst similar to the ones of Kanye West, Serena Williams, and the senator. They are public figures to the United States and everyone saw what they did. But there are other times when it is acceptable. When a positive effort and voice is needed to stand up for something one must take care of it. You have to know how to handle situations appropriately.

  57. Cole

    It was rude for Kanye west to steal the microphone from taylor while she was still accepting her reward! I’m a big fan of taylor swift and seeing that happened made me mad. It’s never okay to outburst however if you do NEED to say something (Which Kanye west didn’t need to) you can do it a bit more politely!

    September 15, 2009 at 10:17 am |
  58. Kevin

    What Kanye, Serena, and Wilson did was very rude an inappropriate. They should understand there is a time and a place to disagree, and in the middle of a speech in front of a large audience is not that. Kanye should formally apologize to Taylor Swift in person for that outrageous move.

    September 15, 2009 at 10:18 am |
  59. Michael

    I think that in big situations like the VMA awards and all that, that those kind of things shouldn’t be allowed. It’s okay to do it when you’re just with some friends but when you’re on national television that kind of thing is not okay. I can understand Serena because I would get frustrated too if I was about to lose. But all I think those people need to do is apologize and everyone needs to move on with their lives.

    September 15, 2009 at 10:18 am |
  60. Leigh

    Kanye was WAY out of line! He should have held his tounge at least until after the VMA's were over. Kanye overstepped his boundries and he needs to appologize to Taylor personally instead of over a blog. I feel sorry for Taylor because she was embarassed in front of all of those people and made her cried. This isn't the first time he as done it. He needs a serious reality check. I commend Beyonce for letting Taylor come back up to have her moment.

    September 15, 2009 at 10:19 am |
  61. E.O

    How bout Kanye! Disrespectful? Sure, but he just chose to voice his opinion on the biggest stage of all. At least he had the guts to do it on stage in front of Taylor instead of to go behind her back and gossip like a little school girl. Same goes with Joe Wilson, even though that is worse because it’s the president and all.

    September 15, 2009 at 10:19 am |
  62. Patty

    It is my opinion that public outbursts should eventually be forgiven but they are not acceptable, especially when made about someone else. I think that Kanye West and the others should not have said what they said in the first place, but I feel that they should be forgiven because they are human and they make mistakes. Overall I think that they have realized what they said was a mistake and I think that they have learned their lesson, even if it was only due to the bad publicity that they caused themselves.

    September 15, 2009 at 10:19 am |
  63. leo

    You wait until everyone is done talking not in the middle of their speech or sentence. Speaking out is acceptable when people don't care what you do. Not when the whole world is watching. except if it is important, like fate of the world rests on me saying something stuff

    September 15, 2009 at 10:19 am |
  64. Kiya

    Now when you are in setting, like when you are with your family and friends, that's an appropiate time to make an outburst. But when you are on television and the cameras are rolling it's best to hold your tongue and wait for an appropiate time to say what you have to say. Now what these three celeberties did was both rude and disrespectful. They are considered role models and are held to a higher standard. Unless they are willing to accept the consequences for what they did, they sholudn't say anytihng in the first place. Now what Kanye West did was totally rude and very very disrespectful!! He should have broadcasted his apology, not only to Taylor swift, but to the audience at home and at the VMA's.

    September 15, 2009 at 10:19 am |
  65. cal

    I dont think he should have done that it was immature.He can think what he wants to but keep it to your self because that he accomplished was getting kicked out of the music & video awards. And he ruined taylors moment too.

    September 15, 2009 at 10:20 am |
  66. Eric

    I think that Kanye West’s outburst at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards was immature and unnecessary. He should have never approached the stage and took Taylor Swift’s glory. Serena Williams shouldn’t have did what she did, she never should have lashed out at the referees, but instead of being professional she was unethical. . I also think that Rep. Joe Wilson should not have called the president a liar and should have dealt with the issue with the president and not on national television.

    September 15, 2009 at 10:20 am |
  67. Camiya

    I think that that was wrong for K.West to do If he was so strong about what he had to say to Beyonce then he should have told her at the end of the program that he is sorry and that he think that she really desevered the awards instead of making the person who got the award feel bad. A lot of people look up to K. west and I think he could of handle that in a better way.

    September 15, 2009 at 10:20 am |
  68. Nick

    I think that all of them were unnecessary, especially at the time that they did it. I think that all of them could have waited until it was an appropriate time to share their opinions, and do it in a less offensive and rude way. There are times that it is appropriate, which is after the people are done speaking and you are not interrupting anything. I think that if a person shares their opinion about something then that is acceptable, however if they do it in a way like Kanye, Serena, and Sen. Wilson did, then they should be ashamed and punished somehow, because that was NOT the appropriate time to do it!

    I think that every one should have the right to be heard...but some people just don't know when they should make them selves heard...posting your personal opinons online is ok...but doing it on live television is just as wrong as hiring a plane and writiting in the sky so everyone can see it.

  70. Kerri

    i thought it was really uncalled for kanye to do that. especially when it was something that someone worked hard for. But he apologized and i think everyone should just move on from the situation. Same for serena and that other political guy. Say what you need to say in a respectful manner, especially if it's publisized. But it happens, that doesnt mean we should disrespect them back.

    September 15, 2009 at 10:21 am |
  71. Bree

    What Kanye West did was immature and he really shouldn’t have done that. Because he could have at least waited to say who he thought should have won until the end of the show, but he probably just wanted to make a big scene about it so he interrupted Taylor Swift. Which he really shouldn’t have done because she was in the middle of making her thank you speech. When Kanye did that he probably wasn’t thinking and didn’t stop to think that id just might hurt some ones feelings. Other than that this whole thing was just stupid and immature.

    September 15, 2009 at 10:21 am |
  72. Sarah

    I think that Serena did the right thing. In which being a tennis player I know that you have to do that, if you want to speak out if they are cheating. That’s just the way it goes with tennis. Although, with kayne and the other guy that was really disrespectful. They should have kept that to their selves. Poor Taylor swift did not know what to say about it.

    I have seen what Kanye did on the MTV Awards, the congressman yelling at the president during his speech, and Serena Williams yelling and using bad language at a line judge. I think all these people know what they did was wrong and they have all apologized. The thing that they need to remember though is that they are always on camera and everybody in the world can see what they do.

    I think that it is unbelievable that people would speak out that is so rude and it may end your career. I think that these people who have no respect should be punished or hated. Some people don’t care at all about other people’s feeling if you disagree you shouldn't do so on TV or in front of the other person you disagree with.

    Ok sure there are times to speak out on camera and there are sometimes not to. Comedy central for instance “the roast” people always speak out of hand just so they could talk bad about somebody else but if it’s the president’s speech you best be keeping your mouth SHUT. What Kanye did was not really bad but at the same time it was unneeded attention towards Beyonce thou Taylor Swift did get her speech at the end of the show which was nice of Beyonce.

    I think that there's a time and place for everything, and Kanye, Serena, and Wilson all chose the wrong times. However, we can't hold that against them forever, no matter how unprofessional and rude their outbursts may have been. See, folks like to take just a few snapshots of your life and hold you accountable to that one snapshot for the rest of your life. Maybe for those three (well, maybe not Joe Wilson), they'll get better about themselves in the future, and I look forward to it. I am a fan of Kanye West's music but I was utterly disappointed in his behavior Sunday, even though I laughed at the moment. However, I know what it's like for folks to hold something you did to then so long ago and you've changed since then. I'm not gonna hold it against Kanye and Serena for what they did but I do hope they take some time off and think about their outbursts.

    One student feels that they are appropriate to an extent because some people should know other peoples opinions but he could of expressed himself in another way. About Serena Williams, one student feels that she was right in trying to get her point across but at the same time you can't make threats at officials. Another student agrees that she could of done it in a more respectful adult manner.

    I think Kanye made a huge mistake by interrupting Taylor's speech. He may enjoy Beyonce more than Taylor but he doesn't have the right to interfere with who wins the award. It is alright to have an opinion about something but it shouldn't be said if it can hurt someone else.

    I think Kayne West, Wilson, and Williams all had a reason to speak out like they did. we live in a country that allows us to speak freely about anything we want. Out burst are a part of life people can say what they want when ever they want and should not get into trouble for it...

    I think the outbursts are totally inapropriate because Kanye West was very rude to Taylor. How would Kanye like it if Taylor took the microphone from him and say Flo Rida had the best video of all time.

    I think what Kanye West did was really rude to everyone but most of all to Taylor Swift. I think Beyonce is a really good but the judges thought she wasn't as good as Taylor Swift and also Kanye West doesnt have any right to start saying that Taylor Swift shouldn't have won that Beyonce was better, because that is very rude for everyone that was watching.

    I think its better to wait when someone is speaking because you interrupt them and also its not using your manners. Kanye West, Serena Williams, and Joe Wilson were all rude to people that were either talking or referring. Serena did not have to have an outburst just for a bad call in a tennis game even though she was right. When Kanye interrupted Taylor Swift and said that Beyonce should have one the award then why didn't she win it? It is just somebody else's opinion and isn't right to interrupt.

    September 15, 2009 at 11:36 am |
  92. René

    I personally believe that one should speak out against something they disagree with, but one shouldn't speak out any time, one must wait for the right time to say something. The right time is after the other person is done speaking and one should talk in an educated manor. However, the wrong time to speak out is while everyone is listening to the person speaking and what makes it even worse is speaking in a language far from pure.

    I think it depends to who you give an outburst. Some times its better to hold your toungue but other times its better to give an outburst. It isn't appropriate if its at a show or something but if its with your friends or somethig then you can proabably can. If it would offend someone then you should hold your toungue.

    I think that it is fine as long as it has no loose lips and it's true. Also how about if there is someone who actually made a mistake on who should have one that music contest. If no one does then no one will ever stand up for whats right.

    I think outbursts, like kanye west's, at the wrong time are immature and wrong, however it is right to speak out when it's not public and on national TV. I believe Kanye West was very disrespectful to Taylor Swift, who is just 18 years old and is still pretty new in the business. So outburts like this, should just wait for the right time.

    September 15, 2009 at 11:38 am |
  98. Corrie

    I think it was completely uncalled for when Kanye West stepped up and trashed Taylor Swift's first moon-man. As for Serena and Joe, their outbursts were still entirely unnecessary but Kanye tops them all in my opinion.

    I like Kayne West but i thought he was really rude to Taylor Swift.
    I thought that Kanye's outburst was stupied and not nessacery.
    If he hays something mean to say about someone, he should keep it to himself. He owes her HUGE appoligy for inbarissing her like that.
    I would never do that to someone, especialy in public. Beyonce had a good video, but i thought Taylor had a good video also. kanye could have not needed to open his mouth and trash Taylor Swift.

    I believe that kanye should have not have said anything. he should have just kept his oppinions to himself. EVEN beyonce thought that it was rude to basiclly diss her out like that LIVE all over the world!!! i thought that taylor swift deseved that award she worked just as hard as beyonce and beyonce still got the award for the video of the year.

    I Think That there are times to speak out but what kanye west did on the mtv music video adwards was inmature because she is like only 17 or 16 and bearly started in the music bussniess an hes been in the busniess for a long time.And serena made a bad play and she shouldnt have cussed him out.

    I think that public outburst is wrong. If you disagree with something, it should be in private. If you do speak out, don't say a lot of inappropriate things. Speaking out is acceptable when you don't interrupt anyone that is speaking. Speak things that can change things to the better, but not shouting out who got the better music video. If you do public outbursts like that, you make yourself look bad.

    I think that yelling out would be something that only a child would do. sure everyone has freedom of speech, but they should at least wait until they can speak their own opinion without interrupting any one. I think that all this shows is that they are immature and have no respect for anyone. Also until they have self control of their mouth they should not talk at all.

    I don't think it is appropriate to speak out when somebody else is getting a award because it is disrespectful. You should hold your tongue and not say anything because it will make you look bad. They could have said something if they could and if they let them. But they should not because it will make the other person feel bad. So you should never do that if they give you permission.

    I think that sometimes it is appropriate to speak out, but sometimes you should also hold your tongue. I think that the appropriate time to speak up is when your defending your rights or on a jury obviously when the judge lets you. I don't think you should speak up to an authority disrespectfully.

She also lost a huge match withch she will regret for her bad language.Serena is also a really a good tennis player and she made her self look really bad in front of millions of people

    There is a time and place to speak out. Not when your about recieve an award or saying something bad about a speech. If its not nice or an inappropriate time you shouldn't say anything. Next time people should just keep your mouth shut or not say anything at all and keep it to themselves.

    Im going to start out with Kanye West's outburst. On the the MTV Video Music Awards,Taylor Swift won an award for the best video. When Taylor Swift was on stage, Kanye grabbed the microphone and said that he thinks Beyonce had the best video. Now Serena Williams also had a public outburst. Serena caught a lot of bad press outbursting during the U.S open. The H.O.R. is considering a vote on whether it disapproves on Rep. Last, Joe Wilson outbursted during Obama's speech about health care. I think all of these things are not acceptable and are disrespectful.

    It is really rude to take the microphone away from taylor swift when she was making a speech. I bet he would get really mad if he was on stage and someone took the microphone away from him. So he should treat people the way he wants to be treated.

    I really think that Kanye West was really out of line. I think it was a vastly more mature decision when Beyonce gave her stage time to let Taylor Swift finish. I think that people should know that when you are being recorded, its best that you keep it to yourself. That means you Kanye!

    First off, I really dont think what Kanye did was that wrong. Of course he did take the mike from her which was very rude but it's his opinion. If he waited and then said his remark it wouldnt be as bad as everyone is making it sound. Kanye was still very rude and it's good that he apoligized to Taylor.

    I'm a huge fan of Beyonce however Kanye should have let both singers take thier award appropriatley because Beyonce won the overall video award. He should have kept his opion to himself. Kanye did the right thing of apologizing but for Taylor,she will never forget the memory of getting embarrased and crying in front of millions of fans everytime she looks at her trophy.
    And also,we cannot blame Serena for being to cmpetitive,shes been playing for a while now and im pretty sure she knows the rules. It was probably a bad reff. You cannot blame the player for wanting to win. Atleast she did the right thing in apologizing but if i in the situation i would'nt feel sorry!

    Kayne West, Serena Williams, and Joe Wilson were wrong to make an outburst, especially Kayne. Most people hold their tounge and deal with it. Thats what these people should have done. Speaking out in a crowd is just silly, but when it's just you and your friends, that is a huge difference. But sonce it was only once that they have done this, I think it's right to forgive and forget what they had done.

    I, for one, think it is VERY rude to shout out something while someone is talking. It is very disrespectful. Kanye West shouldn't have completely ruined Taylor's moment, not to mention, Beyonce got Best Moonman award overall anyway. He shouldn't have said anything at all. And i would think employees of the government wouldn't be rude, i guess i was wrong. They shouldn't say anything else either. i think that even if you do apoligize it is still rude and shouldn't have ever been done.

    Kanye West's hurting doesn't have to inflict upon others. but anger in itself can stop that process of logical and practical thinking. He pretty muched lashed out, blinded by anger and pain.

    You can get as mad as you want, but pain is pain, and you've all dealt with it the same way.

    It's NOT an excuse. At All.

    People have their opinions. Some things can be said at a different time. If I don't like somebody, I'm not going to interrupt someone in the middle of them saying something just to say that I don't like them. I don't blame Serena for expressing herself, but she vould have said it in a more appropriate way. If someone is lying, I won't yell it out; I'll say that I don't agree with it.

    Now Kanye West know he wrong for doing that, I think that was rude of him and I do not think that, him snatching the microphone from Taylor Swift was approproiate at all. Kanye needs to have more respect for other people and wait his turn to speak if it's that important.

    I think its wrong for people to burst out when people are having there moments. They have no right to say anything they are civilized people who should know to act when their in public.But should better than to godrunk to a mtv awards. Serena Williams should'nt have argued with the official she's a professional she should know how to act because that outburst cost her the match. The senator who screamed out and called obama a liar has no room to talk obama is just trying to help out the country. Obama should have that senator thrown out of his seat for such a remark against his word. People should choose their words wisely and think them before saying something they might regret.

    I believe that what Kanye West did was very inappropriate. He, at least, could have waited until the end of the show, but he did not have to embarrass Taylor Swift like that. I mean, well, Taylor Swift is a good singer but Beyonce also is one. Kanye just wanted to say what he felt was right and that is good but not in front of the audience and millions watching at home. At least Beyonce won something at the end of the show. I am a big Beyonce fan but also Swift fan; he should not have been rude to Swift though. On the other hand, plain outbursts like that and what Rep. Wilson and Serena did are very disrespectful and should be controlled. Rep. Wilson, I believe, was very, but very disrespectful to the president and he should be glad Obama did not do something very harsh to him. So, yes, I believe outbursts should be controlled in a fair manner.

    September 15, 2009 at 12:32 pm |
  144. Matthew

    The outbursts made by West, Wilson, and Serena all have on thing in common: pure disrespect. They need to keep their mouths shut and control themselves in public places. Kanye West was drunk so he had no right to speak at all. — Taylor Swift is very young and was probably looking forward to the mtv awards. She’s really grateful to be at the VMAs and gives the audience a thankful speech. Then suddenly, Kanye West pops out of nowhere and makes a distasteful interruption. He made her feel so bad.
    Kanye is crazy for doing that he should be fined for that.

    What Kanye did to Taylor Swift, I believe was inappropriate. I think whatever Kayne had to say should have waited til after she was done speaking. I really can not believe he would do such a thing but hey I guess he have his moments too. Taylor Swift probably at the same time feel that Kanye was being very rude and disrespectful. He really should apologize to her for his inappropiate behavior.

    September 15, 2009 at 12:37 pm |
  146. Hunter

    Kayne does have the right to have his own opinion, but you just don't snatch away something from someone that's trying to have their moment. The same for Williams and Rep. Wilson. Wilson should be ashamed that he interuppted the President. That's one of the worst things you can do there.

    Worse than the Kanye remark was the president of the US calling him a bad name. I expect that kind of language and behavior from a music star, but felt it immature for the president to respond about the incident. Obama should be more ashamed of his behavior than Kanye.

    I think there can be a time to speak out. But people do need to hold their tongues untill it's appropriate. What Kanye West Said was very rude and disrespectful. He embarrased Taylor Swift and should have never even got out of his seat. That was a time to not blurt out but to hold the tongue.

    September 15, 2009 at 1:06 pm |

    Kanye is just a complete idiot, taking Taylor's moment to shine.
    Shame Kanye SHAME!!!

    Kanye wuz actin like a ... Because no one nice wud interupt an 18 year old if the are like in there fifties I will never listen to his music again. Beyonces video wuz stupid anyway all she used wuz three girls wgile Taylor used like 40 see the difference?
    PS Serena Williams ITS JUST A GAME! (whats wrong with the world)

    Kanye West outburst about the MTV award was definitly not needed and if he watned to give his personal opinion then he should have waited until the live cut was over.

    It's not all right if you make a rude outburst, especially on TV. If you know that it is rude or will hurt someones feelings don't say it.

    September 15, 2009 at 1:09 pm |
  157. Eddington

    What Serena Williams did on the court was totally appropiate. The judge kept calling calls that didnt (atleast to me) seem exactly true.

    at first i thought Kayne west was that they were just being funny, but when i saw taylor swift's face i knew he was crazy

    Kanye West was just rude! If he didn't notice Beyonce won overall, so he could could have taken is rudeness and appologized to little miss Taylor Swift. Poor thing, she's young and she was probably trying to thank averyone, when Kanye over here was trying to bring her down! I refuse to listen to any more of Kanye's music because of his little outburst.

    September 15, 2009 at 1:13 pm |
  161. Eddington

    What Kanye did it was completely appropiate. He was simply stating his opionon! People are just looking at it because they believe its racist or something.

    There are some situations where you need to speak up. For example, if a bully is threatening you, you should say something to an adult or the bully himself. If you believe the government is doing something unfair, you should protest.
    But ino matter what situation you're in, you should be careful about what you say. I believe these celebrities should have kept their mouths shut. The outbursts were not necessary, and these people are not in a better position than before they said what they think. They were probably just trying to get attention.
    West should apologize to Taylor Swift, because interrupting her speech was just plain rude. There is no excuse.
    Also, I'd like to thank Student News for allowing us to provide our input as students in the blog. My stance is: Free speech is a precious right, but with more freedom comes more responsibility.

    September 15, 2009 at 1:16 pm |
  163. Muchacho

    KANYE you Are so RUDE AND AN IDIOT. Kanye you should be ashamed of your self. I mean beyonce got her award. I mean Taylor Swift deserves more than you. But serina did not have to cuse out the ball person. Kanye you just need to let people have there moments. And stay out of peoples buissness. ok now i mean that was just plain rude. gosh so.

    September 15, 2009 at 1:16 pm |
  164. Bekah

    Kanye was just rude as well as Serena. They should have just held their tongues. It was very inappropriate! People shouldn't speak out in the middle of something. If your asked for your opinion then go ahead but not right in the middle of something! If you can't agree then too bad! Just HOLD YOUR TONGUE! Your making yourself look bad!

    September 15, 2009 at 1:18 pm |

    People should keep their comments to themselves when it comes to public places. it is very disrespectful to put someone down for their own opinion. we are given the right to speak our opinion and everyone has the right to be herd. no one is better than someone else. respect everyone

    September 15, 2009 at 1:28 pm |
  166. Mariah

    People should just keep their thoughts to themselves if they don't have anything positive. Like the thing with Taylor Swift. What did she ever do to get the one guy to say those things while she is making her speach. It is plan rude and not right... so they appalagized.. big deal they can't change what they did.

    September 15, 2009 at 1:28 pm |

    If you are blessed enough to be a respectable public figure, you must learn how to conceal your feelings and control your emotions. Simply put, keep your emotions in order.

    Serena had her reasons because the line judge made the wrong call
    Kanye was just plain stupid

  169. John

    I belive that Serena had her reasons for bursting out on the Line Judge because her foot was clearly behind the judge. Although on the other hand i do not belive it was not right for Kanye to outburst and jump on stage and killing that girls first award speech ever

    September 15, 2009 at 1:59 pm |
  170. Indolysia

    I feel as if Kanye was disrespectful towards Taylor Swift. He should have kept his opinion to himself and just just told his homies. Everybody's outburst was disrepectful it was not the time or place. Kayne is a fye rapper, but is making stupid decions.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:00 pm |
  171. cod

    i dont think its right when someone is getting an award but like with Serena williams in the tennis match, Serena was just telling how she felt and the little snitch of a line judge went to the main judge and told on her. the line judge should have just let it go and the next time she should have told.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:00 pm |
  172. Yadira

    Most of these outbursts were unaccepctable and disrespectful. The only one who had a bit of an excuse was Serena, because sports can and sometimes will do something to you. While all these people have freedom of speech, sometimes crossing the line is something that really should not be done. All three ruined moments that cannot come back, and maybe shall be forgiven with time.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:01 pm |
  173. Christopher

    No these outbursts are not appropriate. Kanye West and Serena Williams both have fans who look toward them as role models. And the SC senator was completely out of line. These outbursts have to stop.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:01 pm |
  174. FRank

    Kanye was just plain stupid and disrespectful but Serena had her reasons because there was a wrong callbut could have argued a little less agressivly

    September 15, 2009 at 2:01 pm |
  175. Jessie

    Kanye was very wrong to take that away from Taylor. It was her first time and it was very mean of him to do that. He should really apologise.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:02 pm |
  176. Harry

    I think that they really aren't necessary. If they want to say something, they say it on the news later, not while it's happening. It's just rude, and when you are being rude in front of millions of people, you are going to get hurt, physically, mentally, or financially!

    September 15, 2009 at 2:06 pm |
  177. neal

    i think that kanya west is stupid for saying that because taylor swift has her moments. i think akon was mad because he never had the best selling album.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:07 pm |
  178. Matthew

    I think the outbrrst are unnacacary. Kayne West should have waited before he said anything.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:07 pm |

    I dont think it was necissary to walk out on someones award and speak out. But theres not a big reason for this much contreversy over this particular subject.

    Hmmm...I dont think it was nessessary to say that during Taylor's moment...but I dont think everyone needs to be hatin on Kanye...

    September 15, 2009 at 2:09 pm |
  184. Samanther

    The 2009 VMA Kanye West out burst was completly unexceptable. Kanye should have let Taylor have her moment, and save his comment for later when he was either being interviewed or talking to friends/ family. I was not appropriate at all for him to grab Taylors mike and go on a rampage in the middle of her speech.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:10 pm |

    kanye west was rude and he should have been nicer to her

    I believe Kanya West is a beast, and should be forgivine, although it was unnecessary and rude. It is good he appologized, but everyone makes mistakes and people should let it go.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:10 pm |
  187. Maddie

    I think that is was really rude of kanya To do that. If he has a comment keep it to his self and tell someone else not on national tv! That is just downrigh rude! Sorry Kanya i am not a fan anymore.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:11 pm |

    i think kanye had the right to go on stage while taylor swift got the first award

  189. Amber

    I think the outbursts was RUDE!!!! because they suppose to be grown and intelligent but they are showing young people how to outburst when someonelse is talking. but im glad beyonce brought taylor swift back to the stage because she is a conciderate adult.

  193. Andres

    I personally don't think it matters much because it was their decision and they get the conseqences. If those people want to make a huge deal about it then that is their problem. I know that what they did was disrespectful to that person but that is their problem and i don't really think they should be making it a bigger problem than it really was

    September 15, 2009 at 2:12 pm |

    I think Kanye West was wrong for his outburst and they just need to stop inviting to events like that

  195. Tim

    When you become U.S citizen, you are given the right of free speech. Kane West's and Serena Wiliam's outbursts are okay, but I really don't think that an outburst during the presidents speech was the smartest thing that Joe Wilson has done in his life.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:13 pm |

    I think Kanye west should have kept his mouth shut till the end. he had no right to interupt taylor swift during her big momoent and say she didn't deserve this and that beyonce should get the award.

    P.S. carl thanks for not telling a terribble pun last time!

    September 15, 2009 at 2:13 pm |
  198. Monica

    I don' t think that Kanye should have ruined Tayor's moment like that, but I also don't think people should be hatin him. Celebraties need to be able to control themselves or they're goning to get in trouble, and no matter who it is, or what it's about, it is not right to outburst like that.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:13 pm |
  199. caitlin

    i think that kanye was way out of line with that outburst. he was being way to hurtful to all his fan. i think that he shouid talk to beyonce at tell her that he is sorry! that was so out of line

    September 15, 2009 at 2:14 pm |
  200. Will

    These outbursts should not be happening. People are not stopping to realize how INAPPROPRIATE it is, especially in public, and in front of cameras. If these people making the outburts could, for ONE second, slow down and THINK before they yell their heads off! Wake up!

    I think small outbursts may be somewhat appropriate in some situations, but these are rare. Again, stop, think, then react. Act like the person you're outburst-ing to is your teacher, if it is or it isn't!

    September 15, 2009 at 2:14 pm |
  201. alfred

    Ithink it was disrespectful that kanye west interrupted her she won not Beyonce but we should know by now this is how kanye is so we should just learn to live with it. Its his opinion he has a rightn to state it but do it another time not while someone is celibrating. yeah!

    September 15, 2009 at 2:14 pm |
  202. Anthony

    I belive that Kanye West was very rude and should not have jumped in front of Taylor Swift and messed her up. Just because his opinion isnt true doesnt mean he has to be a bum and act lame.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:15 pm |
  203. rachel

    What Kanye West did was totally unacceptable and he shouldn't have done that. It was rude and totally not appropriate.I think he just said that because she is a country singer. A man as grown as him should not be commenting on a girl thats seventeen.How dare he say that about her, Taylor Swift is way better then Beyonce because she doesn't use fowl language and talk about body parts and stuff that people do with their body parts. Taylor swift music is for all age groups and she is a great singer.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:15 pm |

    I think wilson should be aressted for whay he said to obama and get a real job and so he doesn't speak to the so rude to the President.

    oh yeah BARACK OBAMA ROCKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    September 15, 2009 at 2:16 pm |
  206. Michelle

    speaking your mind is always a good thing but it isn't always the right thing. there is a time and place for everything. and for kanye to steal from taylors glory moment and give it to who he thought was a more 'deserving artisit' is honestly sicking. first of all that paticular award had nothing to do with kanye so he had no right to interrupt at that moment. another thing is aplogizing on a BLOG doesnt count!!! he was man enough to be disrespectful to her face on national television he should be man enough to apologize to her face. maybe next time he wins an award taylor can 'sing' the sweet song of revenge and share her opinion.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:16 pm |

  208. Nyiesha:)

    I believe that was wrong for all 3 of them. Especially for Khanye West and Serena Williams because there are a lot of people that look up to them. Now they might think its ok for them to do that.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:20 pm |
  209. Morgan

    If it's your opinion, and you feel the need to make a public outburst, don't. It's rude, and facts are facts. If you disagree with something, and you have solid evidence somethings wrong, then you may, politely, say something.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:21 pm |
  210. Logan

    I think it is wrong and that Kanye should not have done that. I would hate it if someone stepped into m spotlight, so i know that made her feel bad.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:21 pm |
  211. Joel

    I don't think it is appropriate to speak out like those recent celebrities, because it is disrespectful to yell at the president, curse in public, or say someone else is better during an awards ceremony. I do think you should speak out but don't yell it out when someone else is talking.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:21 pm |
  212. alex

    I think that the celebrities that burst out during public events need to think before they speak. They think that just because they are famous no one will care but in fact many people do. Just because they are famous it does not mean that then can say or do whatever they want.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:22 pm |
  213. Nyiesha:)

    I also believe there is a time to speak out and hold your tongue. In all three cases they should've held their tongues . That was very inappropriate.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:22 pm |

    I think it wasn't necessarily his fault since he was an only child and his mom passed away.

    Kayne did have the right of freedom of speech , i just think he extended to the wrong extent ! 🙂

    September 15, 2009 at 2:22 pm |
  216. Emily

    Even if Beyonce had a good performance and Taylor still won it, Kanye had no right to interupt her speech.. I'm pretty sure they wouldn't pick Taylor just because she's white and and Beyonce is black. So he should have kept his opinion to himself.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:22 pm |
  217. Briana

    I think that comment was very rude. I think there would've been another way for him to tell Taylor Swift how he felt. He didn't have to ruin her moment. Taylor Swift is a very humble person.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:23 pm |
  218. michael

    They enterupted them when they were talking and they don't deserve to get an award.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:23 pm |
  219. Zack

    I think that there are times to speak out, as in if someone wants to hear your opinion, but most of the time it is just better to not say what you’re thinking, especially if it is negative, and wait for a better time to share your feelings.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:23 pm |
  220. joseph

    i think this was very rude and uncalled for. he should make get on the television and tell everyone he is sorry

    September 15, 2009 at 2:23 pm |
  221. Haley

    Why would Serena shout a bad word that she was going to lose? she already knew she was going to lose? Millions of people are watching the video of Obama’s health speech

    September 15, 2009 at 2:24 pm |
  222. Taylor

    I think that the comments made by all the famous people are completely uncalled for. I mean its just ridiculous to ruin someone’s night like he did. She had probably looked forward to this for a long time and it was all ruined in a matter of a minute. Although I do think that in the congress you have the right to free speech.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:24 pm |
  223. Ben

    i didnt hear bout the Kanye thing until the next morning when my friends were talkin bout it i really dont care i mean he's done this twice you know an outburst at an awards ceremony i think that they shouldnt invite him any more.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:24 pm |
  224. MASON

    I THINK, WHEN YOU ARE A PUBLIC FIGURE AND MANY PEOPLE LOOK UP TO YOU, YOU REALLY NEED TO HOLD YOUR TONGUE AND BE CERTAIN THAT WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO SAY IS RIGHT. PEOPLE ARE GOING SAY THINGS THAT THEY WILL REGRET BUT THEY JUST HAVE TO KNOW WHEN TO STOP.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:24 pm |
  225. 6elective

    K. West was innappropriate and should not steal someone's special moment. He should have thought before he acted. In general people should stand up for themselves,, others, and important things, but should not just talk whenever even though it is our right.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:24 pm |
  226. Elizabeth

    Kanye West had no right to get on stage, take Taylor Swift's microphone from her and say that she doesn't deserve her award. This was her first VMA award and even IF she didn't deserve it, which she did, he still had no right to do what he did. He's already said a few things out of turn as far as I'm concerned anyway and this just added to the list!

    September 15, 2009 at 2:25 pm |
  227. kesa

    I think that it was rude of k. west to do that such thing,it was not i time to give an opinon but a time to sit it out and wait til' some one ask for his thoughts!!!

    September 15, 2009 at 2:25 pm |
  228. Pixie

    Unless your life is like on the line or in danger, I think you should keep your personal opinions to yourself. Kanye was extremely RUDE! that was her first award she didn't deserve that!

    September 15, 2009 at 2:25 pm |
  229. Rob

    I think he should have saved his complaints till the whole thing was over. He might have ruined his whole career due to being stupid and speaking his mind.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:25 pm |
  230. Roberto

    I think it is a bad thing to outburst especially if you're a celebrity. I saw the Kanye West thing live and I also knew about the Serena Williams outburst and they were both uncalled for. I didn't know about the senator during Obama's speech. Even if he disagreed with him he should have said anything because it is rude and very disrespectful. I also can't believe he would say that to the president.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:25 pm |
  231. Chase

    I think that if you interrupt someone then it isn't ok to speak out. If you are arguing your point or trying to make your point clear then it is fine. If someone is talking then let them get their point out and then you can go. If you need to get your point across then speak out but don't do it in such a way that it can get you in trouble.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:25 pm |
  232. Liz

    When you are on TV you are a role model for millions of people. You are standing there, as a celebrity, representing something. It is unnecessary and rude to speak out of turn. You should wait for an appropriate time to voice your opinion. That way you can really think about it and decide if it should or should not be said.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:25 pm |
  233. j-daub

    I think outburst should be handled the way they are handled. An outburst is never necessary and the person doing the bursting always regrets it at the end. I think that outbursts should be illegal and if you outburst you will be punished. It is always better to hold you tongue. Kanye West made Taylor Swift cry, even though she just won an award. Outbursts are completely inappropriate childish things that should never happen because they always end up hurting someone.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:26 pm |
  234. Max

    Kanye was very rude and when I heard about what he did on the news I went on facebook and made it my status because it was that bad. Beyonce is a great artist but that definitely doesn't mean that he can just interrupt Taylor from having her moment. Joe Wilson was very stupid for putting himself out there for everyone to see that he doesn't agree with the president so much that he wants to throw something at him; we can disagree but do it in a constructive way. As for Serena Williams, she might have been upset but cussing is not the way to go. Public outbursts aren't the best idea so if you are going to say what is on your mind then I would think about it twice before I say it.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:26 pm |
  235. Grayson

    I think that Kanye should apologize and he should have not have said that. That was mean.

    i do not think that that was right he should have kept his oppinion to himself. i feel sorry for taylor that was her first award he wouldnt have liked it if that was him and someone did that to him.

  237. PLUS class

    One student thinks that those celebrities should keep their comments to themselves. Taylor Swift won it fair and square even though Kanye West's outburst is not going to change the decision of who won. Another student thinks that it is inappropriate for them to have those outbursts. Those celebrities should have waited to get their opinions out. Another student feels that even though it was inappropriate he still spoke his mind and he likes that. Another student thinks that it was also inappropriate but it was still funny and entertaining.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:27 pm |
  238. Ale

    I think that Kanye West outburst was unnecessary and if Taylor Swift won the award well she won!! He can't do anything about it so he should have stayed quite. Sometimes outbursts are unecessary and they shouldn't be said at all. And of course no one should make an outburst to the President.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:27 pm |
  239. James

    I believe that outbursts in the situations such as what happened at Obama’s speech or the Kanye West incident are unacceptable. A person should be polite and hold his or her tongue until the end because no matter how badly they want to speak out it is rude. There are of course situations that speaking out would be acceptable as long as it is non-disruptive, appropriate, and polite. If a person feels so strongly about something then they should support their opinion by being courteous and not rudely interrupting a person because that does not help their cause.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:27 pm |
  240. Lana

    The outburst that Kanye West made was pretty rude. Everyone has their own oppions of who they think should win, and he shouldn't have voiced his opinion in the manner that he did.

    I think Serena was just mad that she was losing and didn't really think about what she was saying. Sometimes during sports you can say or do things that you wouldn't normally do- you just get caught up in the moment.

    Joe Wilson was just doing his job. He's there to voice his opinion. He might not have done it at the best time but everyone makes mistakes and they should just move on from it.

    All these celebrities are supposed to be role-models but when they make outbursts like that nobody can tell.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:28 pm |

    I think that was a very rude comment. There was another way for him to tell her how he felt about her music or wateva.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:28 pm |

    What those celebrities did was unacceptable, they tried to take someone elses accomplishments and turn them into losses. Like Sabrina Williams she was trying to beat a person that deserved to be the winner. As of kanye West he took the spotlight away from Taylor Swift.

    Appropriate times to speak out are when you are at a meeting and it is ok to speak out. Times when it is not appropriate to speak out is when it is just a meeting that only one person is talking. Speaking out is acceptable when you are trying to get a point across something. Speaking out is not acceptable when someone else is talking.

    kanye, serna and the other guy should control their mouths they have more self control

    It really all depends on what you are speaking out against. There are some things you just don't speak out against and there are some things that you can. It also depends on how respectfully you are when you do it. What happened at the VMAs was extremely un-tasteful. That is a great example of when you should not give you opinion.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:29 pm |
  247. Anonymous

    I think that the outburst were disrespectful. Kanye West outburst at the VMAs was immature and rude, it was probably one of Taylor Swift’s best moments and he ruined it. I think it’s okay to speak your opinions when the time is right but not in times as important as these.

    I think what happened was bad and rude, but no one can stop them because the Bill of Rights says that any american has freedom of speech, press, petition, religion, and assembly.
    I also think that it was the wrong time for those things to be said.

    What Kanye West did was dumb and disrespectful to Taylor Swift for ruining her moment to shine. Even though he disagreed with the outcome he shouldn’t of did that he should have done it in a nice manner elsewhere. I personally like Kanye music but i disagree with what you did.
    I never really like Serena and for her to say such cruel thing to a official is uncalled for and needs to be finned a lot more than she did. And stop being a sore loser.
    Rep. Joe Wilson just because republicans are being beat in the number of seats in the house and Senate doesn’t mean you have to show frustration that was. If you didn’t like the plan think of something better. And that’s the president you should show some respect.
    And overall all of these events were uncalled for.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:34 pm |

    I think that Kanye should have let Taylor receive her award and cherish the moment, and just kept his mouth shut. I was impressed when Beyonce when she came back and respected Taylor.
    Serena had a point but shouldn't have made a big deal and kept it to herself. After all she won the Wimbledon against her sister.
    Joe Wilson just like Serena should have kept his opinion and not make such an outrage.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:34 pm |
  252. Alayna

    What Kanye West did was very rude and he didn’t even make a point when he did that. It was Taylor's special moment and her first award, and he ruined it for her. He didn't do the right thing at all. Outbursts can be appropriate depending on where you are, and when it is. It’s never appropriate to bash someone in an outburst or in any way embarrass someone. Outbursts, in my opinion, don't really get any point across...just by yelling a sentence or two doesn't really convince someone that you know what you’re talking about and you are serious about it.

    September 15, 2009 at 2:35 pm |
  253. whitney

    I watched the awards i feel that what kanye did was very rude ,but everybody knows how Kanye is and he's known to do rude and obnoxious things. I feel that it was good that he apologized ,but that still does not change the fact of what he did or make it any better.I do feel though that it was very classy for Beyonce to pull taylor Swift back on stage and to let her finish her speech. To solve these problems i feel maybe they should handle Kanye and just quit inviting him to these type of events so we wont have to worry about any confrontations or problems.

    My students pretty much aggree that Kanye, Serena, and Rep. Wilson were in the wrong for blurting things out inappropriately, and that they should apologize - I wish they would observe those sentiments of proper decorum during my class!!! =)

    I think that Kanye West should not have done that to Taylor Swift becouse what if that was him he wouldent feel good. I think it was nice of beyonce letting Taylor Swift finish talking.

    It is rude to have an outburst in the middle of a speech or talk, but when it is absolutely necessary, like when he/she is personally intentionally offending you, you should say something unless you want rumors about you floating all over the network!

    September 15, 2009 at 3:59 pm |

    I think it was mean and rude to say her video was better I think Taylor Swift is a great singer.

    well i think that it was really rude. but i do agree with him. i do like rihanna buch better! but he realy didn't need to have a burst out about it.

    September 15, 2009 at 4:12 pm |

    I think outbursts are not fair because people deserve what they get and people cant say out a coment they only can say it in there head.

  262. amanda

    well. i don't understand why some people have to be so rude like that! did you see beyonces face when he did that! it was imbaresing to her and him. i mean come on get some maners please!

    We talked about this subject in our Business Law class and we decided that it was unethical. He could have just blogged about it later instead of ruining a 19 year old girl's moment.

  265. veronica

    i think you should hold your tongue when there is alot of people around but it's okay to say something when it's just themself all alone.

    Outburst is so uncalled for. They really needs to learn some respect.

    GO!!!!!!!!!!!Taylor Swift

    I think that all of the celebreties think they can make outburst in public and be distrespectful just because they are famous and i dont think thats right at all.

  268. Sheala♥

    i think kanye was def in the wrong. he honestly should have just kept his nose out of her's and beyonce's business & none of this would have ever happened! it was taylors first award and he ruined it for her. she will never have another moment where its her first award. i also believe that everyone kept there opinions and outburst to themselves none of this type of stuff would happen. in the end, its best just to keep your mouth shut & your opinions to yourself!!

    September 15, 2009 at 4:46 pm |
  269. andrew

    i think that the outbusts are approite i mean come on. if you ever go to a prep rally or a concert people are alwas cheering and hollering. why should they be allowed to do that when the other people can't interupt
    things like acceptence speeches? the people cheering and hollering are expressing their feelings. why can't the people who outburst express freedom of speech? it is basically violating the first ammendment.

    September 15, 2009 at 4:50 pm |
  270. Miller

    Wining the 2009 MTV Music Awards would be one of the best things to do when your just a teen, but when someone comes up to you and tells you that some other music stuff is better, something like that would just ruin it for me. But what happed there was just not cool at all. At least he knows what he did was not good and I hope that he will not do something like that in the future.

    September 15, 2009 at 5:02 pm |
  271. Carla

    I think that Kanye was being extremly insensitive and I feel terrible for Taylor. If he did not think that she deserved that award (which she did) then thats fine but he needs to keep it to himself! It does not matter if you like the president or not, you don't call him a liar during a press conferance!!!! People need to slow down and think about what they are going to say instead of just blurting it out.

    September 15, 2009 at 5:10 pm |
  272. Michalah

    Kanye West, Serena Williams, and Joe Wilson all have a right to have there opinions heard , but to just interrupt some one (on live tv) isnt right. There adults and should know better!

  273. zack

    Rep. Wilson was right. Obama is a big fat liar. He is covering up. And oh by the way Archie, did you notice the approval ratings for Obama is down? =))

    September 15, 2009 at 5:15 pm |
  274. Christian

    I find the current trend of outbursts in the media to be extremely rude such as the outburst in Obama's speech, but im not saying outbursts are a bad thing it just depends on who's watching and to do it on national television is completely wrong.

    September 15, 2009 at 5:25 pm |
  275. Jenna

    I do believe it is rude and they should keep there opinions to themselves for the time being, they are famous enough to get the chance to announce them later on TV for goodness sake!!

    I think it is not okay to outburst or interrupt when someone is talking, though it is okay to speak your mind with the time comes and not when someone else is getting a reward.

  278. Anna Marie

    In my opinion on the MTV 2009 video music awards, I think Kanye should have not gotten up on stage at all. It wasn't his time to go on, nor was it appropiate or necesessery to snatch the mike away from Taylor Swift, Insult her durring her muchly deserved moment, and then walk off like it was no big deal. I don't think he'd like it very much if he was the one on stage and someone did the exact same thing he just did. If he had something to say, he should have voiced his opionon in some other way, like on his blog or in youtube video and not infront of millions of viewers and much less in an award ceremony. It wouldn't have been as bad as ebarrasing Taylor infront of everyone.
    I just have to add that it was so nice of Beyonce, for giving Taylor her deserved time on stage, And I admire Taylor for keeping her cool durring Kanye's outburst. She sure has alot of class.

    I think it is incredible that congress had a vote to decide that willsons outburs was uncalled for and rude i dont think it takes all of congress to figure that out and who knows maybe the thing obama says about the health care bill are lies

    September 15, 2009 at 6:00 pm |
  280. Joey

    It doesn't matter if they apologize after they did something wrong, they still did it. What matters more is the public's reaction to this, Kanye West, Serena Wilson and Rep. Wilson were boo'd by the crowd.

  281. kenny

    Hey kanye west you should have not done that it was so rude man people might not like you for that u messed big time but like your songs they are the bomb!!:) but you should have waited to express. you probably hurt the girl heart..:(

    September 15, 2009 at 6:05 pm |
  282. Katrina

    Kayne West is titled to his own opinion. So is everyone else. But, I think it was rude of him to interrupt Taylor Swift like that. Why did he do that anyway? And why did Serena do that? Did she lose? I don't know why she did it. Why would Joe Williams do that? Like I said, I don't know. Isn't he representing our country! I don't think that they should have done that.

    September 15, 2009 at 6:05 pm |
  283. Maria

    That is just plain rude! What if you won an award and and in the middle of your speech, somebody comes up on stage and says that the other person should of won? That's just messed up!

    September 15, 2009 at 6:10 pm |
  284. Alex

    I think that Kanye West was being honest ,but at the same time he was kind of disrespectful because I think that Taylor Swift got mad because she was all happy that she had received a Award and Kanye West went and jacked it up !!!!

    September 15, 2009 at 6:12 pm |
  285. Judith

    Kanye West was so mean to do that, it was Taylor's first Video Music Award. Beyonce was so nice to let Taylor finish her speech.

    We think that the out burst were inapropriat.Everyone can have their opinion but they can wait until someone is done talking. but they can also wait until the speach is over.it was rude to rip the mic. out of Taylors hand at the awards.

    September 15, 2009 at 6:16 pm |
  288. Eric

    I think what Kanye West did was pointless because Beyonce ended up winning an award anyway. He didn't have to be rude ruin Taylor Swifts moment.

    September 15, 2009 at 6:16 pm |
  289. britney

    i think that the outburst from Kayne West was completely unoppropriete. Taylor Swift won fair and square. if i was Taylor, i would have lost my temper and taken the micro-phone from Kayne. calm, kind, Taylor kept her cool, and let him go on with his extremely annoying outburst.

    September 15, 2009 at 6:19 pm |
  290. Aryn

    Obiously if you speak out towards the president it's going to come back and slap you in the face. He has appologized but still he needs to prove that he meant his appology. With the whole Music awards thing he had no right to go up and give his opinion. I don't know the whole Willams story but I believe she was out of line. Shut your mouth and hold it tight! The thoughts are better inside your own head!

    September 15, 2009 at 6:22 pm |

    kayne west is stupid for always doign that. Period. even though people say hes meant to do that

    September 15, 2009 at 6:25 pm |
  292. Daniela

    I think Kayne should not have done that to taylor. It's Outbursts like these that get people kicked out! Although Kayne did appoligize, I think he shouldn't be forgiven. Atleast Beyonce let Taylor finish her speech later.

    September 15, 2009 at 6:28 pm |
  293. John

    I think that what Kanye did was wrong but people are making too big of a deal about it. He justs got out of hand and wasn't thinking. It happens to everyone.

    September 15, 2009 at 6:30 pm |
  294. abby

    i am a big fan of both kanye west and beyonce, and i honestly feel that taylor swift did not deserve to win the award. however, kanye west had NO RIGHT to do what he did, and it's going to take more than a simple apology to fix that.

    September 15, 2009 at 6:30 pm |
  295. shelby:]

    i believe that people should't talk about kanye west of say of what he did and he has done made himself look like a fool, he has said his apologies and that he should not have said that. i forgive him and i think taylor swift has too..

    September 15, 2009 at 6:31 pm |
  296. shelby:]

    serina williams is one of my idols, she has always been a inspiration to me but you know some people mess up sometimes, that should'nt effect how we look at them. serina williams did make a mistake, but she still didn't have the right to make her own call on a move that only the caller can call. i know, i play tennis too it can get hard sometimes but i always let everything out on the courts, not at somebody.

    September 15, 2009 at 6:36 pm |
  297. Abby

    While standing up for what you belive in and debating your point is good in my opinion, I belive Kanye West's outburst at Taylor Swift was horrid! He had no right to take the mic away from her and say those things! If I were Taylor it would take me a long time to get over that and forgive him. And Kanye's way of apoligizing (over the internet) was not the right way to go about it! Tell her you are sorry in PERSON Kanye! I mean seriously!

    September 15, 2009 at 6:39 pm |
  298. Jack!

    He is STUPID! I think he should have been more considerate of Obama. Who really cares what he thinks, he is like the guy that threw the shoe at Bush. I really don't think that when he apologized, It was enough to pay back.

    September 15, 2009 at 6:52 pm |
  299. SHELBY

    I think that the kanya west thing is ridiculous!!! You do not interupt someonething or someone ever,but during her acceppance speech is just plain rude!!!! RUDE RUDE RUDE!!! The same thing applies with the dude who interupted the president. Now that one is so awfully rude that it is hard to explain, Interupting the president is one of the rudest things a person could do. To make it worse he is one of the important guys who is supposed to be all respectfull and stuff. May I say that that man was NOT doing a very good job at it at all!! But on the other hand the tennins player thing that is okay. Because you are aloud to say what you are feeling in a sport, but she may have gone a little to far with it. You should say what you think really quik then keep on playing and make up for the mistake that the ref says you did. Nowsome people may think differnetly but oh well thats what i think.

    September 15, 2009 at 6:52 pm |
  300. Katelynn

    I think that was very rude what Kanye did. He had no right to just take away that moment from Taylor she earned evey peice of that award and when she looks back on that moment and think "Oh, im so proud of myself that was one of the best nights of my life" but now she can only think, that was the night someone actually ruined what was suppose to be the big highlight of her career.

    September 15, 2009 at 7:00 pm |
  301. Macy

    I don't think what Kanye did was right .

    I think he should of apologized on stage before he got kicked out.

    September 15, 2009 at 7:12 pm |
  302. Monelle

    I think there are times when you just don't yell out like that. It's just basic public rules. Disagreements should be settled after large meetings, not during them.

    September 15, 2009 at 7:25 pm |
  303. Haley

    I dont think that it is right to outburst something during someones special time. Kanye West is an complete JERK for saying, "Beyonce had one of the best videos ever!". Thats just RUDE and CRUEL!!!!! Beyonce was right for apologizing to her because she actually understood that it wasnt her award. It was Taylors. That is just COMPLETEY UNNECESSARY SAY SOMETHING LIKE THAT ON NATIONAL TELEVISION! Some people look up to Kanye west.. Sometimes you gotta think ahead about what your going to say.. BEFORE you actaully say it. I think Taylor has every right to be mad at an outburst like that. It was taylors moment to shine NOT Kanye West nor Beyonce. 😀 🙂

    September 15, 2009 at 7:26 pm |

    I think that Konye West just wanted to run the show and that he thinks beyonce is better than taylor swift also this was her first award. He should of just accepted that taylor got an award for singing Great.

  308. o'brain

  311. Tiffany

    I think that Kanye West shouldn't have done that at all. Even though they apoligized, i think that they should have a better punishment like jail or community service. Honestly they needed to behave better. It was nice that Beyonce let Taylor Swift have the spotlight again anyways :]

    September 15, 2009 at 8:26 pm |
  312. Karissa

    I think that Kanye's outburst to Taylor was rude and wrong in so many ways. One she is a teenage girl still and will take that very hard, it looked like she wanted to cry. He should feel bad and apologize to here face to face in front of everyone. The out burst that Rep. Wilson made was also rude, because he wasn't showing respect to our President . Serena's outburst was also inappropriate at the time. i think that people should keep there opinions to them self's and if they are going to say something to someone or about someone they should tell the person one on one to show respect because when you tell them something while you are in a crowd then one it makes you seem immature and rude.

    September 15, 2009 at 8:47 pm |
  313. AARON

    i think it was inapropiate to do that kind of stuff,but there is freedom of speech.It was setting a very bad example for kids watching their famous people act silly.

  314. Nathanael

    I personally think that if cerlebrities and polititians have anthing to say to anyone they should either wait till they are not on TV or if they don't have anything nice to say DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL!!!!!!

  315. Madilyn

    I think that it was wrong the way Kanye West did that, but everyone makes mistakes. I think that we should forgive him. I know that just because he is famous dosen't make it right but still he is human.

  318. Tate

    There is always a time and place for an outburst. However, that time is not in the middle of an acceptance speech, address to congress, or the U.S. open! What these three did was wrong and they should apologize. I mean come on they're adults!

    September 15, 2009 at 9:22 pm |
  319. Jayla

    I dont think that what kanye west did was appropriate because he interrupted tayler Swifts speech. the only time you should shout out like that is when you are in a sports game.

    September 15, 2009 at 9:23 pm |
  320. Ben

    Ther is a time and place to speak out loud or when to keep your thoughts to yourself.On my opionon, I personally think that is disrespectful, and they should wait till someone is done speaking before they make a comment. I think it is only appropiate when it is the right time and is your turn to speak.

    September 15, 2009 at 9:31 pm |
  321. Josh

    There is a time and place for everything...in front of lots of people or when someone is accepting an award is not the place for someone to voice a disagreeing opinion. What Kanye, Serena, and the Senator did were all inappropriate because the people watching lose their focus on what is supposed to be happening and all the attention is brought to the outbursts. The people trying to speak are shown no respect when they are interrupted. Are people entitled to voice their own opinions? Absolutely, however they need to be careful as to what they say and when they say it.

    September 15, 2009 at 9:44 pm |
  322. Jaker

    well you can have an outburst as long as it is well thought out because if its just something random you might realize that you don't even agree with what you said.

    September 15, 2009 at 9:54 pm |
  323. shawnicee

    i believe that u need to keep your mouth shut at times. because for onr it was worng for kanye west to say what he said becaus al though he was hurtin in side didnt mean he had to make others hurt. And serena had no rite to say wat she said that's jux bein a poor sport. If every one did this things the world would be a sad sad world

    September 15, 2009 at 9:56 pm |

    The fact that Kanye West made an outburst does not make him a bad person, but that doesn't make it ok.

    Ok, first....Kanye West's outburst was inappropriate and childish. His apology seems insincere. Serena Williams could have found another way to express her frustration instead of spitting words of anger at an official. Senator Wilson, I feel, had ever right to outburst in the President's speech because he is defending the truth. Truth should always be spoken up for. But, in the end we all need to remember that everyone is a sinner and will make mistakes in life. The distinction is that these people got caught on camera.

    I believe that kenya did this for attention celebrites always do this and the press loves tem for this just put thaT OUT TO the press t\and the story will eat itself up.

    We think that outburst are totally inconsiderate. It has never been polite to innterupt somebody or somethimg, so why now? They should respect the golden rule.

    He had to have been intoxicated to do that, or he is someone with no respect for young artists, and one that really likes beyonce

    I think that what Kanye did was disrespectful and that he apologized was nice but he still should have kept he's opinions to himself.

    Wilson first of all shoudn't of said that the president was a liar even though he may have some horrible ideas for this country. He should of kept it in and not express his feeling in front of the house. Come on have some more respect for the president. I think it was kind of rude. And Kanye how would u like for someone to interrupt u when u just won a major award. huh? U need to seriously back off of taylor. Just because she sings better than u..excuse me just because she acutally sings and u just say a bunch of words doesn't mean u had that right to intterupt her. Totally rude

  331. DANIELLE

    We are in America and everybody has the right to speak there mind. However, what Kanye West did was unacceptable. He not only took her moment, he basically slapped Taylor in the face by saying Beyonce had the better video. Outbursts like this are not the way to speak your opinion. But when anyone makes a mistake they have to pay for the consequenes and Kanye is definatly paying for it, as he should be.
    When stating your opinion to someone it should be done in a proper manner. And a time that it would actually be effective and debated.

    An outburst in public can be good or bad, and I find it sad that the outbursts more frequented in the news are negative. I find it rare to find a good outburst on the 5 'o clock news. Negative outbursts are not only unfavorable and rude, they also bring a bad reputation to the person outbursting, which can ruin a career. People need to be careful what they say when the live cameras are rolling.

    September 15, 2009 at 11:20 pm |
  333. jenny

    well all i know is, people should have the right to speak freely about their beliefs and what they think is right or what should be fixed. But in this case he really had no real reason to say anything. i mean its just an award. they can always run again for it cant they ??

    September 16, 2009 at 12:11 am |
  334. Ryan

    I think that it is ok to speak out, but in an apporpriate way and being respectful. They should not do it in the middle of someones speach. They should do it on there own show or on there own blog!

    September 16, 2009 at 12:21 am |
  335. sam

    In human nature we naturally speak out when somthing irratates us or we disaprove. These three parties spoke out at the wrong time, the appopriate time would of been after they got off camera's. I say all three of these persons should be punished accordingly.

    I personally think all three outbursts weren't the most mature things in the world, but the feedback and comments everyone is making is I feel, too harsh. Every 11-17 year old girl in the US now disrespects Kanye, and their defense and love for Taylor has deepened. Taylor, I believe, was shaken, but, she accepted the apology, even joking about Kanye afterward. Wilson, felt infuriated, and though I disagree with his views, I understand that if people feel strongly opposed to something, they can let out a few words that are silly to speak out loud. Serena paid her fine and had to go through tough stuff. I think-I know, everyone makes mistakes and does things they regret. We do rude actions once in a while and we've been forgiven(but we're just not celebrities, nor are we famous). Cut some slack. We should all forgive and forget, and I think America will, in time. But for a while, I guess those three outburst-ers will have to persevere their "punishment". Sorry. I hope next time, you'll keep your view to yourself. At least they all learned lessons....I mean, fail to succeed. right?

    i dont think kanye west had no right to interrupt taylor swifts moment. he is an idiot for doing that. ... like what was he thinking! i think kayne west would learn his lesson if someone did that to him when he was getting his award.

    September 16, 2009 at 9:08 am |
  339. Lainy

    I think people who have a reputation like Kayne and Serena should not outburst with the Cameras rolling. It makes there fans turn away and it makes other celebrities dislike them.

    September 16, 2009 at 9:55 am |
  340. Maddie

    I think Kanye was rude to say that on national television, he should apologize personally then just forget it ever happened!

    Everyone should have an opinion, but some people should keep there's to themselves. Alot of people where watching, and he probly lost alot of fans because of that.

  342. Sage

    I think people should control themselves. Public outbursts, especially when you're in a position of power, are ridiculous. Half the time, they're incredibly rude and don't need to be said in the first place.

    Kanye has always made rude comments remember "Bush Hates Black People"? Serena is an athlete and they get frustrate and as far as Rep Wilson goes "You lie" isnt the worst thing he could of said about Obama's healthcare speech.. And its better then a shoe!

    September 16, 2009 at 1:29 pm |

    I think Kanye West could of said his opinion like he did, but he should not inturrupted Taylor Swift's speech.

  348. sophia

    I do not think that it is okay for kanye west to just shout out something during taylor swift's moment!
    Joe wilson should not say "YOU LIE" during president Obama's speech.
    Serena williams should not just yell to the judge during the game.

  357. emaan

    Kanye West should have kept that nasty opinion to himself. Taylor Swift just got her award & he interrupted her while she was talking, which is very rude! What I would do is stop buying his albums. She also just got this big award and he blew it for her. He also probably lost a lot of fans. He could have also done it for attention. YOU SHOULD ALWAYS THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK!!!

  358. daniel

    I personally think Kayne is a good artist.but he does have to keep his moth shut sometimes.I mean this isnt the first time hes spoken ot like this. Bottom line is he should appoligize

  359. Pearl

    It can be very disrespectful to outburst especially if you’re famous. What Kanye West did at the VMA awards was so disrespectful in so many different ways. Even if beyonce had a really amazing music video he didn’t have to interrupt Taylor’s speech just to say who was better. In fact he didn’t have to say it period. As most people say think before you speak. I am a Kanye fan, Taylor fan, and a Beyonce fan but, what Kanye did was just wrong.

    i think that kanye west's outburst was uncalled for. some people say that he was drunk, and was not aware of his actions, but i say drunk or not, he knew it was wrong. and serena williams was also wrong for bursting out like the way she did. but at least she had the spirit, and courtsey to apoligize. she did the right thing by saying sorry. I think that the outburst in president Obama's speech was rude, nasty, un called for, and just plain mean. he is our president, and maybe everyone didn't want him the oath of office, but he is, and we have to respect that. but joe Wilson apoligized, and we all have to notice that Joe wilson was resposible for his actions, but he apoligized.

  364. skylar

    i don't think public outbursts are ever okay. if you are not asked for your opinion then don't give it. I mean America voted. Kayne can't change that Taylor Swift won the award. He should of just held his tongue and he wouldn't be so disliked right now.

    September 16, 2009 at 6:37 pm |
  365. angelagh

    What kanya west did did not only heart her feelings it also imbearis him. Our family always really liked Taylor Swift and Beyonce. Now, we love them, they are filled with class and are idols that everyone should look up to. They are ladies and examples of how a young lady should act. Kanyee is an idiot and he should never be aloud to perform infrontof anyone again,.

    i cant believe kanye did that i personaly have lost soooo much respect for him.for a grown man to snatch a microphone from a teenager is unacceptable. her face just droped as soon as he did that i felt so bad it was her moment and he had no right to steal it. i think he is a waste and taylor acted more of an adult than he did by not saying anything to him and performing right after. besides he wasnt even nominated for that award if beyonce had a problem with taylor winning that award she couldve gone on that stage and said i deseve this award but she didnt and by kanye doing that that makes beyonce look like a sore loser he ruined HIS name and beyonces name but later she gained it back by inviting taylor back on the stage and giving her her moment back. kanye all i have to say is that your a waste and you dont deserve a second chance and your just a waste of everyones time and you really need to go somewhere with that

    Speaking out is and always should be allowed and expected. That is why our blood, sweat and tears have been shed fighting those with tyrannical plans on us.

    However, there are ways and there are ways. Growing up means growing from within, and, learning to express ourselves and conduct ourselves in a way which parlays our sentiment, our ideas and our opinions, without offending anyone. That's easier said than done because, we are not all at the same level of maturity when we come across each other in life. Because we are not at the same level when we meet, however, sometimes we make stakes. That is the reason for the existence of a few words in our vernacular: "I am sorry. I apologize. What I did was wrong." Then, if we use our "gray matter", we store the experience and learn from it.

    September 16, 2009 at 10:19 pm |
  374. Rayne

    As I was brought up...I was tought not to make an outburst not conserning the situation, and if that if you dont have anything nice to say then dont say it. Kanye West's outburst was un-called for, and Serena's was just a plain tantrum which we all have sometimes. Basically there is a time and a place for outbursts and you should be able to choose when.

    i think that he shouldn't have done that. There was no reason to get up on stage and say that Beyonce had the best music video of all time. I think that he should have just kept it to himself and not make Taylor feel bad. At least he appoligized, but i still think what he did was horrible.

    September 17, 2009 at 8:54 am |
  382. danny

  383. Bridgette

    I think that Kanye Weat should definitely be ashamed of himself personally. I love his music, but now, not so much. He can't change the winner of the awards. He's not doing anything but making more trouble. Now he understands that nobody's going to like him after that outburst. He is a complete JERK! I can't believe that he would do such a thing toTaylor. She definitley deserves that award because she worked so hard to make the best music ever. I love You Belong With Me.

    I think what Kanye and Serena did was awful.Poor Taylor it was her first VMA, and then Kanye just came up and took the microphone. He could have waited a little bit.At least Serena got fined. Don't buy any of Kanye's albums!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No I don't think that outbursts are okay to be done .Here is the reason why, what if you were giving a speech and all eyes are on you and then suddenly someone just bursts out a comment. You will be mad at that person for what the did.So think before you outburst comments out.

    it ddepends on what the situation is. if you are trashing someone, and its just yoour opinion, you should hold your tounge. But, if you are talking about how great President Obama is, etc. etc... i guess you could say it out loud. it was soo deisrespectful for kanye to do that. like every celeberty has a backround noone knows about they might look nice but you can never know. Celeberitys are produced. Producer?? thats where it came from. you may never know the truth about them. anyways.. it was wrong.. he was judjing. thats fine. but on national television?? im sory just not ok. kanye.. treat people the way youd like to be treated/ and i dont think you would like to be trashed. it is soo kindergarten!! but it makes sensee.. right?

  398. Bella

    its ok to say something in public that might not be the best thing to say although if you think it can affect someone it would be smart to hold your tongue. if you dont think it can hurt someone or it wont matter go ahead and say it . when serena williams said " i wanna kill you" to the judge she was disquilified from the tournament and then she said " i never said that or thats not true" which i think means to not lie about your outburst. if you already said it well then, you cant really take it back. Especially for celeberties, when all the cameras go of and the recorder catches it it. so cometimes you have to watch what you say to anyone

    These outbursts are an example of the freedom of speech. We are allowed to speak when we want to and about anything we want to. Although Kanye was just plain stupid doing what he did, he still had a right to do so. Serena just had an outburst of pride during her time at the Open, and Senator Wilson spoke his opinions, even if it was at the most inopportune time.

    September 17, 2009 at 11:35 am |

    Well, I think Kanye West shouldn't of bashed Taylor Swift. But I do agree that Beyonce had some pretty good videos. Swift deserved the award fair and square. At leat the guy apoligized, give him some slack.

    I personaly think that it was really rude of kanye to interupt Taylor Swift durring her moment. Although he was right about Beyonce'. it was really nice of Beyonce' to call Taylor Swift up to have her moment again.

  410. Rachel

    I do think that its ok to speak your kind, but when someone is on stage accepting an award then your out of line. I think kayne should have kept his mouth shut all together, that was very inconsiderate.

  411. Becca

    Hey, Kanye West lost sooooo many fans with those 4 1/2 sentences. I watched it on Youtube soooo many times. He just walks out of no where. I saw Beyonce's face and she was sooooo surprised. It was so sad because Taylor was so excited and then Kanye ruined her moment. Stay in there Taylor!!!

    He should be aloud to say what he wants, the only thing is that he shouldn't say it whenver he feels like it. He does have a right to say whats on his mind, though.

    It's acceptable only when they are given the chance to speak. I like Kayne but his outburst was uncalled for, eventually he would have been given a chance to comment by the press.

  415. Anthony

    You know what? There is a time and place for these kinds. Personally, I would have kept my mouth shut. This doofus had the guts to do it and I think personally, he should get slapped by Taylor Swift for it. The comment he made absolutely humiliated Tylor Swift and I think she was holding something back on her performance. Saying things like that definitely hurts in the long run and those kinds of things should be kept to yourself.

    People, especially celebrities, need to be seen and not heard. It bothers me how celebrity figures always complain about not having any privacy and they always get mad when they are pictured or heard doing or saying something inappropriate. If they don'e want to be seen or heard doing something they shouldn't be, then be seen and not heard and just do the right thing.

    I think Kanye west's outburst was outrageous,and disrespectful to Taylor Swift. her music is get it right now and ten years from now, not just in ten years. so taylor deserved that award not kanye.

    i think the outburst with kanye interupting taylor swift was really rude, but he appolgized so if taylor accepts it then everything okay.... but im still a little mad about the whole thing. its rude to interupt someone while there talking

    I think it was completely rude and disrespectful of Kanye West. I think it was also very kind of Beyonce to let Taylor Swift finish her speech. An outburst like this is inappropriate and deserves a punishment. I think Taylor Swift really deserved this award.

    I believe that kanye should have held his tongue until he got out of there or somewhere else because that was her time right then and there. Its okay to speak your opinion when your around the right people. Even though he apologized it doesnt make it right and you cant take it back now..

    True, these people are adults, and they know better then to act out like this, but we all get a little irritated sometimes, I think think that Serena Williams, Kanye West, and Rep. Joe Wilson, all made bad decisions in what they did. Everyone should watch what they say, and in these situations they defiinitly should have held their tongues.

    September 17, 2009 at 7:28 pm |
  427. Eric

    I think on live tv it is not appropriate to just say whatever you feel. It sets a bad example and poor role model especially if there are children watching. It would be best to wait until the cameras are off to carefully voice your opinions.

  428. Sara

    Kanye West is a person, just like me and you, and I agree that Beyonce had a great video, which is EXACTLY what he said. [Some of the kids @ my school were saying things like, "Kanye West is such a jerk, he told Taylor Swift she didn't deserve the award!" Which is NOT what he said!] What I don't agree with, however, is the fact that he took the microphone right out of Taylor Swift's hand and interrupted her acceptance speech just to announce to the rest of the world that Beyonce's video was awesome. I mean, he could have just told her later on in private that he thought she had a nice video. He did apologize though, and I think that people need to forget about it already.

    September 17, 2009 at 9:56 pm |
  429. Eric

    I think everyone has a right to their opinion but Kayne West was rude!
    Live TV is not the place for outbursts, it sets a bad example for the world to see! Beyounce did the right thing by letting Taylor Swift have her time to talk.

  430. Ashle

    I don't think outburst are ever ok its disrespectful and rude. Its also imature. What Kanye West, Serena Williams, and Rep.Joe Wilson all showed bad character. If you have something to bad to say don't say it at all. We should all stand by that, its a great saying.

    September 17, 2009 at 11:07 pm |
  431. Charlene

    I think that Kanye west was just rude. Taylor "dreamed" of accepting this award, and Kanye just ruined her special moment. And, ok, maybe Kanye did think that Beyonce's was better but still that was sort of rude. But I admire that Taylor regrouped herself to perform "You Belong With Me". I think she's amazing. In addition, I think that we should all be respectful and not follow kanye west's example

    September 17, 2009 at 11:38 pm |
  432. Brianna

    I believe that what Kanye West did at the MTV music awards was complete disrespect to all artists. The artists will have the same amount to shine on their own. I just think he had to much to drink and was as coherent as he should have been being in public and all.

    Kanye West was very very rude to Taylor Swift. People should stop buying his albums. I thought it was good that he got kicked out. I also think he should be banned from those award shows. That is what I think of the situation.

    September 18, 2009 at 8:56 am |
  436. Justin

    Kanye West had no right to deliberately say that beyonce's video was better than Taylor Swift's right in front of her face. He needs to apologize and get all of this behind him.

    Kayne west should be ashamed of him of himself. it was immature to do that to taylor she is still a kid and to humiliate her in front of america is outrageous

    September 18, 2009 at 8:59 am |
  438. Liz

    No, I don’t think people should speak out. I think that what Kanye West did to Taylor Swift was mean. Just because he thinks that someone else's video was better, doesn't mean he has to ruin it for Taylor swift. It is also rude to just blurt that out when she won. Even if he thought that she shouldn't have. He should have just kept it to himself.

    September 18, 2009 at 9:06 am |
  439. Jayy

    I don't think is was a nice thing to do. He didn't even have to say that infornt of all those people. That was just RUDE! He could of went to Beyonce and tell her he thought she should of won instead of making a big scene!

    September 18, 2009 at 9:09 am |
  440. Coriann

    I think Kanye's outburst showed a lot of disrespect towards Taylor Swift. She worked hard to get to where she is today and Kanye West doesn't need to put her down. I think it's okay to speak out when you're not being disrespectful. But otherwise, I'd stick to the 'if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all'.

    September 18, 2009 at 9:20 am |
  441. jamie

    I think that public outbursts are very inappropriate!Kanye West had no right to say that at all.When someone wins something like that you don't just say oh I think so and so should of won,not Taylor Swift.That was just rude.I'm glad he got kicked out after he said that.

    It's this whole internet age dealie. People just assume these days that they can just say whatever they want whenever they want. It's like people are stuck in "tweet" format during normal conversation. It's definitely getting annoying.

    September 18, 2009 at 11:10 am |
  444. Richie

    I think that often when things like this happen soon after another – the Serena Williams thing, Kanye West, and so forth – the temptation often occurs to treat this coincidental happenings as some sort of global epidemic of rudeness. I don't think that people are any less polite now than they were years ago. This is much like what happened in Jimmy Carter's presidency (don't worry, I wasn't alive then either) when media pundits accused his daughter of being rude when she would read a book at the table during dinners with foreign dignitaries. People see an isolated incident as an indication of a system of impoliteness. I don't believe it's so.

    September 18, 2009 at 11:10 am |
  445. Kevin

    Kanye's outburst was completely unacceptable especially during an award ceremony of that scale. I definitely agree with President Obama's comment about him.

  446. Joey

    Kanye can do whatever he wants. Its not like taylor swift has any awards,she racks up the awards in any category. Kanye was just stating his opinion, and apparently Beyonce' had a great video. Kanye may be "heartless", but he can do anything he wants.

    September 18, 2009 at 11:12 am |
  447. Luke

    First of all I am shocked that people are actually surprised that this happened. I mean we have all been dealing with Kanye for years now and people are still in awe of the stupid things he does for his antics. And that anyone cares that the president feels this way is just preposterous. We all hate Kanye and shouldn't be surprised that the president does to.

    September 18, 2009 at 11:13 am |
  448. Hannah

    I think that Kanye"s outburst just made him look bad. I think that Taylor swift got almost a positive image because of Kanye's immaturity.

  449. Kelly

    I think that speaking out in the middle of someone else's speech is inappropriate. No matter if it's nice or not, you should always wait to say something or else that could ruin the person's moment of speaking. And if you have something negative to say, then you shouldn't say it at ALL. Don't get me wrong, however, as I like it when I get positive feedback, but I just prefer it after I finish speaking.

    September 18, 2009 at 11:14 am |
  450. desiree

    i think that if a celebrity wants to speak out about something they feel strongly about, then they should be able to do it. with out have to be written about in a bad way. i agree with Rep. Joe Wilson’s outburst. it is his right to tell the president what he thinks, and i agree with him about the lies because there has been alot of lies going on in the past with health car. so if he is not so trusting in obama thats not his fault. as for kanya west he would have gotten his turn to say what ever he wanted to. for him to interrupt taylor swift on her first night at the vmas is bogus. no one ever did that to him or beyonce. and for beyonce to give taylor swift a chance to thank everybody she wanted to i thought that was a really good thing. it showed that not all celbs are up each others butt all the time.

  451. Heidi

    I think what Kanye West did was totally out of line. Everyone has there own opinion but theres always a time and place for it. He should have waited until after the show to tell Taylor how he felt. If he would have waited he would have seen that Beyonce won an award anyway. He should have thought it to himself instead of making a big seen.

    September 18, 2009 at 11:16 am |
  452. Emily

    I was shocked by what Kanye West did. I felt so bad for Taylor Swift. It was her first VMA award and Kanye West ruined it for her. Thats very rude of him to ruin a young girls dream. I thought what Beyonce did was very nice and mature. Her letting Taylor come on stage after she won showed what kind of person she is.

    September 18, 2009 at 11:17 am |
  453. Cala

    I think that Kanye's outburst showed disrespect towards not only Taylor but many others. I think there is a time and place to share your opinion and his timing for both was very wrong. He's had enough experience in the business that he should respect everyone and not show immaturity. I think it was more for publicity than anything and he just wanted his time in the spotlight, causing a big scene therefore getting what he wanted.

    September 18, 2009 at 11:19 am |
  454. Sarah

    Kanye should have kept his opinion to himself especially since most of the world was watching and alot of people thought that Taylor Swift deserved her award. A person can speak out if their opinion isnt being disrespectful to anyone. When Beyonce brought Taylor back on stage to finish her speech it was really nice of her.

    If some one wants to speak their true negative opinions, they should do it behind closed doors. One little outburst can cause a lot of damage. If it's not necessary to say, then don't say it. If its rude, and will insult others, don't say it. I believe that there is a time and a place to speak your mind, but Kanye's moment definitely was not the time. It's not up to him who wins or loses.

    September 18, 2009 at 11:22 am |
  457. Eric

    I think speaking out is important to do, because if a reasonable explanation can be given as to why something is disagreed with, then whatever had been disagreed with must have flaws. I do not, however, believe this should be done on national television; although it does get the word out very effectively, it is disrespectful to many. The outburst during the president's speech was not necessary, and the opinion could have been voiced through other means. As for the whole Kanye thing... he was probably just doing it for publicity, his name is definitely out there now, and even though not in a good way, some people just want the attention. Serena Williams shouldn't have said what she said, but there was no visible foot fault, so her anger is very explainable. It still doesn't make it okay, but it's an understandable reaction to the call.

    September 18, 2009 at 11:23 am |

    I beleave that people should be able to say what they beleave is right. When it is right to say it though is a whole nother story. People who have good common sense know when it is the right time to say something, Kanye apeers to have none.

    In certain times and places it's ok to talk out loud but to do it rudely like Kanye did that was wrong. He should feel really bad about doing that it was rude Taylor and I'm pretty sure Taylor was IMBARESSED!

    September 18, 2009 at 11:29 am |
  461. Jaclyn

    He shouldn't have even bothered to say something like that becuase he should've known that saying something so rude would bite him back. I think it usually depends on what you want to speak out towards. You kind of have to watch who your talking to, and also how your saying it. But it all really depends if its a logical argument or not.

    Ok sure there are times to speak out on camera and there are sometimes not to. Comedy central for instance “the roast” people always speak out of hand just so they could talk bad about somebody else but if it’s the president’s speech you best be keeping your mouth SHUT. What Kanye did was not really bad but at the same time it was unneeded attention towards Beyonce thou Taylor Swift did get her speech at the end of the show which was nice of Beyonce.

    I say it depends when you can speak out loud. If they are allowing opions and comments, then of course you may. Other than that, I don't feel that should be aloud. It is rude and disrespectful. How would you like it if you finally got to the place you've been wanting to be all your life, and some dumb hackler spoiled it. It shouldn't matter that you don't like it. It hurt

    Depends on the Situation. kaynes outburst was rude indeed . i did not see the tennis outburst. now to Rep. Joe Wilson. If he would of shouted something postive about Obama there wouldnt be so much coverge on the story but he said "you LIE" I think our goverment that if you dont agree with the president you cant hold a house or sentae seat thats my word on the subject.

    There are times when you can speak your mind, but certainly not in such a formal enviroment (yes, considering the VMAs formal) as Kanye or the man who had an outburst during President Obama's speech adressing health care! If youre among a calm, relaxed enviroment then, by all means, cut off your friend and say your opinion on whatever matter!

    September 18, 2009 at 12:02 pm |

    Every one has their own opinion on what is and is not appropriate. Taylor worked hard for award, and then Kanye just goes and interrupts her. That was very disrespectful. There is right time to say your opinion, and that was definitely NOT the time.

    theses outbursts, In my opinion, were completely unnescessary, and to say so for myself, hambarrassing, kayne and serena(tennis player) have already apologized for their mistake. Serena Williams, lost control of her anger, and ended up being controlled by her anger.
    we need to choose when we let our anger speak out and not just blurt the first thing that comes to mind.

    I think that people may disagree with some things, but when it is the tv music awards, you shouldn’t speak the truth even if you think some one else should have earned the award. Taylor & Beyonce both did a great job at their music awards, but when it was tailors time to shine, Kanye ruined it. If I were Kanye, I would apologize immediately and tell Taylor she did a great job. I would regret that mistake.

    I think that you shouldn’t blurt out. This includes at school, games, in the hall, meetings, etc. Most people think that it is funny when someone or you blurts out, but you will regret doing it. Kayne West is regretting blurting out when Taylor Swift was speaking. It is rude and disrespectful when you do blurt out and I bet that teachers feel like Taylor Swift sometimes. I believe that you should not blurt out when any one is talking to you. Let them speak and you can talk later.

    I think that Kanye West’s outburst was unnecessary, and it’s acceptable only when they are given the chance to speak. I like Kayne but his outburst was uncalled for, eventually he would have been given a chance to comment by the press. Plus, Joe Wilson’s outburst is kind of immature. I mean you don’t want somebody to blurt out when you are talking, its just plain rude and unnecessary.

    I think kanye west may have not like the decision but he should not of bursted out like that. Because every one else thought that Taylor swift Disserved it. More than the other girl that kanye was standing up for in the mtv awards.

    OMG!!!!!!
    I can't believe that everybody saw the mtv awards and I didn't.
    And why the heck would Kanye West do that? He just goes up on the stage and take the micophone when Taylor is still saying her speech. Honestly I never even liked him, I just like his songs.

    I think Kanye West’s outburst was rude and mean, poor Taylor Swift. If you don’t have any thing nice to say, DON’T SAY ANYTHING. also, during Joe Wilson’s outburst during President Obama’s health care speech, rember in 1st grade when the teacher said “don’t talk when the teacher is talking”? or in Joe Wilson’s case, “don’t talk when the president is talking”. Joe should go back to 1st grade. THINK BEFORE YOU TALK.

    Kanye West is a person that has very great music and a good career. He messed it up with what he said. When he came up that night, he was booed not cheered on. Taylor Swift is a wonderful person that I think really deserved that award. Seeing Taylor in concert is one of the coolest things I have been experienced with my friends, and I admire Taylor for performing and doing so well at such a young age!!!! Boo Kanye!! Go Taylor!!

    I think all three outrages were rediculous and uncalled for.

    I feel what Kanye did was immature and inappropriate, although he was obviously under the influence. Which isn't an excuse but all people make mistakes and this one just happened to be broadcast to millions of people. It happened, there has been numerous apologies, ITS DONE. I almost believe it is more immature for the remarks of are president then what kanye did.

    September 18, 2009 at 1:33 pm |

    I think Kanye's outburst was rediculus. i showed a lot of disrespect towards Taylor swift, and made him look bad. he had no reason to give his in put on who he thought should win. It was just rude, he shouldnt have made a big scene.

    September 18, 2009 at 1:33 pm |
  500. Jake

    I think Kanye's speech was correct, he just said it at the wrong time. He should have waited until Taylor Swift finished her speech and then he should have gone on stage and said what he needed to say.
    Also, the whole thing might have been staged. How can Taylor Swift win the best female video and Beyonce win best overall video?

    September 18, 2009 at 1:34 pm |
  501. Jon

    I think Kayne West is being a complete and total jerk. he shouldnt be aloud to attend live events for that most resent outburst. Some people just dont behave right.

    September 18, 2009 at 1:34 pm |
  502. Lindsey

    I could not believe Kanye West did that!! I felt so bad for Taylor Swift because standing up there receiving that award is a lifetime goal for these artists. Hopefully she'll forgive him and just grows even stronger.

    September 18, 2009 at 1:35 pm |
  503. Brittany

    I think the outburst Kanye West did at the VMA's was disrespectful, not only towards Taylor Swift, but to everyone at the production and audience. He had no right on taking the time in someone else's acceptance speech for their win. There was no way, he did that for Beyonce. He also did it to himself for all the trash talking he's received. This isn't the first time this has happened like it before with him, so it really shouldn't be such a shock to all. He puts himself in the situations that doesn't obtain himself.

    September 18, 2009 at 1:36 pm |
  504. Becca

    i think that what kanyae west did to taylor was extremely immature and rude. taylor deserved that award even beyonce thought so. and kanyae is appologizing for it now but its too late he already embarassed her nation wide!! he cant take back what he did to her and he better realize that.

    September 18, 2009 at 1:38 pm |
  505. Soledad

    The way people outburst like that is kind of offending. Because who ever is talking is expressing there feels and opinions and people shouldn't interupted. How they feel if some did that to them. Yeah no wants to be totally ignored because some interupted. Yeah it's great to share your opinion and everything, but pick a good time to so. And if you can't wait and to share your opinion when other person talking then you should really say there sorry.

    September 18, 2009 at 1:42 pm |
  506. Nicki

    It was very rude of Kanye to say that, That was Taylor's first music video Award, and she didn't think she was going to win. He does have a right to his opinion, but he didn't have to announce it to the public. Didn't his mother ever teach him, if you don't have something nice to say, then don't say it at all. He could have mentioned his comment to any journalist about his feelings and thoughts on the MTV video awards, instead of blurting his out like he did.
    – respect your fellow artists when it's their turn to shine-

  507. auriole

    Kanye West blew it for Taylor Swift .Taylor got her first MTV award and this idiot just came up and blew it for her.So I think that it's rude to do something like that. When your at a speech don't outbursts it's not fair

    September 18, 2009 at 1:47 pm |
  508. Eva :P

    Yeah what all three of them did was very mean and no one deserved to be *slapped* in the face like that =/ no one will look at them the same ('cept kanye he's already dubbed a jerk) and their apologies mean nothing–to most people. But...that's just them...let me rephrase everyone has there own personality and you can't change that. Kanye is just the type of person who is going to keep doing things like that and i don't think there will be anyone to change his mind. Serena...well i don't know much about her, if she's ever done this before or anything but maybe she just needed to vent–even for a moment. Joe Wilson....hmmmm joe joe joe...i don't know much about this but maybe he just doesn't like obama i don't know ASK HIM YOURSELF!!!!!!!1!!one!!!! XDDD bye

    Kanye Wests outburst was totally unnessisarry
    Taylor Swift is a country singer and to get a VMa award is totally okay
    and the muic videos between beyonce and taylor was no contest!
    I think Kaynye should just appologize face to face to taylor (instead of a blog) and get it over with!

    I think that there are times to speak out and there are times to hold your tongue. If you have a question or comment that is important and appropriate, than that would be a good time to speak out. If your just trying to be funny by saying something inappropriate than there will probably be bad consequences. That would be a good example of when you should hold your tongue. Something’s are better kept in your head.

    September 18, 2009 at 2:07 pm |
  511. ASHLEY

    No you should not blurt out in front of a live audience it’s both rude and embarrassing, however it is your own freedom of speech and if you want to ruin your life by making comments- go ahead but frankly I wouldn’t advise it.

  513. Leperchaun

    I think that people should hold their tongues & keep opinions that are not appropriate to themselves. It’s not right to shout something that might not be true or that might be true. It’s just like that saying “If can’t say something nice don’t say nothing at all.” It’s a true saying. Well that’s all I have to say.

    Speaking out is very appropriate at an appropriate time. What Kanye West did was very inappropriate and was rude to Taylor Swift. Kanye west should of held his tongue and should have wait until she was done and in private. It was very immature of him and he just wants attention.

    September 18, 2009 at 2:11 pm |
  516. Elizabeth

    Kanye West had no right saying things about Taylor Swift. They are both talented, but they better person won. But he needs to get his act together before any other things happen to him. Also he needs to stop getting pitty for his WRONG actions!

    September 18, 2009 at 2:12 pm |
  517. Jordan

    I think that kanye west could of kept it to him self. I'm mean it was Taylor Swift's big moment, he didn't have to ruin it for her. I thought kanye could keep his anger inside, but i'm kind of second thinking that now.....

    I think Kanye West was in the wrong to ruin taylor swifts moment. Beyonce did not ask Kanye to do that, so he shouldn’t have. I think it was extremely rude.

  520. Emily

    I don’t think it is ever okay to have outbursts. I think it is rude for whoever they are out bursting. I think Kanye west was rude to Taylor Swift so I think it is rude to everyone else too.

    First off, in my opinion, Kanye had no right to take the mic from Taylor during her speech. It was her special moment. Beyonce did not like it at all, and Taylor was very hurt. Serena Williams lost her temper a bit, hey, it happens. Celebrities are humans too. But interrupting a presidant is a diffrant story. He is the elected leader of the United States, and therefore, should be respected. Some may not like it, but as my mother says, if you dont have anything nice to say, please dont say it at all.

    P.S I Love watching the CNN student news. My whole class sits in one room and watches it. WE LOVE CARL AZUZ!

    I think that there is a time for speaking out, and there is a time where you shouldn’t. You should speak out when you don’t agree with something and you are asked for your input. You should not speak aloud when someone is getting an award that you don’t agree with. Or, someone is giving a speech. Also you should never speak out if you know the person talking would not appreciate it. It is very rude. Kanye West should have not said anything. It wasn’t appreciated and no one respected him for it. It just made him look like a fool. I think that he is a jerk. That was something that did not better him or the talker. We should only speak if is something that is a nice comment. Like a nice thing. Also if it is something that needs to be know. Kanye West is NOT NICE!! And you are not a nice person if you agree with what he said. BAD BAD BAD!!!

    September 18, 2009 at 4:24 pm |

    Kanye West acted so rudely towards Taylor. Outbursts no matter who you are cause issues that make people take sides. Then other people just ignore someone and disrespect them back. Really you should just express your feelings another time when you can have a serious conversation not an outburst.

    What Kanye West did was very disrespectful. This is not the first time he has done these sorts of things. He’s a very arrogant person. I think it is funny when he said that Beyonce had the best video of all time.

    I think that there are appropriate times to talk ant not at others. I think that a it is ok but if you do it all the time it is not exemptible. I think that when you want to say something in school you can just raise you hand. You should be able to say what ever you want to say though, but you have to be respectful.

  533. Dessire

    I don’t think outbursts are very appropriate especially in very public places. People should be able to control themselves in society. If you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all. I also think that Kanye West was not very respectful and should have never of interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech. On a lighter note it was very big of Beyonce to congratulate Taylor and bring her back on stage.

    Speaking out is appropriate once in a while but not all the time.
    There is a time to speak out. But you should not do it just because you can.
    But there is also a time when you should keep your mouth shut.
    I would say to keep from imbursement you should not randomly yell something.

    I think speaking out loud is appropriate sometimes, but you should hold your tongue most of the time. When you speak out like that you might say something you regret.

  537. Alex

    I think Kanye West lost his temper. Let somebody give their speech! Keep your thoughts to yourself, even if you are richer than everyone else. Serena Williams needs take stop yelling when something doesn’t go her way, but Joe Wilson wanted to just speak his mind. Raise your hand, at least, though.

    I think that when people have outbursts they should get punished for them. Kanye West shouldn’t have gone on to the stage without thinking about it. He should never get a MTV award. He should apologize to Taylor Swift for saying that to her face.

    September 18, 2009 at 4:34 pm |

    I think it is better to hold your tongue when you are in public. Kanye West should have thought about what he was doing before he butted in at the MTV awards and completely crushed Taylor Swift. I think he owes her a apology. I think most people don’t think before they speak.

    September 18, 2009 at 4:36 pm |
  542. Emily

    I think that people shouldn;t do outbursts in speeches like that because they could get in serious trouble. People do have their own freedom of speech but i think that there is a place where we have to stop and wait. You shouldn't speak out at times where something important is going on. No one wants to hear what you have to say when someone else is talking. I for one think its very rude. But this is only my opinion and hey, other people have some too. We dont have right or wrong answers so, outburst if ya wanna!

    Ciao!

    I love taylor swift and beyonc'e and Kanye west until now i think it was really rude of West to do that and beyonce was a GREAT person about it she only gave up her spotlight to Taylor

  544. lexi

    i think it was inapropriate for kanye west to do that at the vma's to taylor swift she was having a special moment and kanye stole it from her. basically this is a lesson we all need to learn. when it it accepteble? i think never. unless you are saying something nice.

    Kanye West shouldn't have said that on stage with millions of people watching. So, he thought Beyonce was better, that was no reason for him to ruin Taylor Swifts moment. That was rude. Not saying he couldn't think that, but he shouldn't say it in the middle of someones "Moment".

    September 19, 2009 at 2:47 pm |
  548. Bren

    When it comes to speaking out, we have to remember that our rights end where other people's rights begin. Kanye West really trampled on her rights.

    Ok, Kanye's does that alot so nobody should be mad.But that was wrong what Seneter Joe Wilson did.He should not have done that.At the time he probly had an excuse "freedom of speech" but realy you still should not do it.That is disrespect.He took it way to far if you are going to do that do it on a talk show but do it in a way were it is not so harsh souding.

    September 19, 2009 at 9:18 pm |

    I think that what Kanye did was very rude, but don't we all make mistakes? I think that he should appologize for this rude outburst, and hopefully he will learn from his mistake.

    I think it rude to interupt a person of such great power or famous will he or she have the floor. i think if you interupt someone that mean u have no respect for u or the state u live on or the country and if u have something to say thats negative hold it in and wait till the important person is finished then say what u have to say

    I think that it was soooo inappropriate for kanye west to just go up on stage and ruin taylor swifts moment of glory. If America believes shee should have gotten that award he should have accepted that. He has his oppions and so does everyone else and just because he is famous and rich doesnt mean he has anymore rights than anyone else he should have kept his mouth shut. There are many of times when it is acceptable to speak out but there are also times not to. I think that is was nice of Beyonce though to bring taylor back on stage and give her a moment and to tell kanye that he did do wrong. She is the true hero in this story. People should be more kind to others than just think they are the best and this is a perfect example to help people understand that they do wrong and change our nation for the better now if you think about it one bad thing a "star" does on tv can change alot of people for the good but it depends on the person. That is my oppion on the whole kanye and taylor situation.

    September 20, 2009 at 9:35 pm |
  555. Ashia

    kanye should have keep his thoughts to him. He shouldnt ruin others joy because of his ego. The girl was torn up and couldnt have a moment to shine because of him. Maybe you cant give her that time back but im sure theres a way to do something for her. That right there would be the right thing to do because apologizing isnt going to the job.I think because he was so drunk it messed his train of thought up. Kanye needs to get is priorities together and fix this mess.

    I think that speaking out loud depend when it is right because I have gotten in trouble before in class when I should NOT be talking. I think it is okay to shout out something appropriate but what Kanye West did was unexceptable.

    I think Kanye should have held his tounge. It was wrong to intterupt during a speech. Kanye was not in the right mind to say that Beyonce should have won. It isn't his just opinion. It is the peoples' opinion.

    September 21, 2009 at 5:32 pm |
  560. Ruby

    I think it's just sad when people do this. Even famous people because we see what they do a lot. It's just rude and disrespectful. When people outburst like this, the person who was talking feels bad. With what Kanye West did to Taylor Swift would make her feel super bad the most because she had won that award anyway. People need to not interrupt and be like that just because it's plain wrong. It makes me think did they get raised with manners????

    i think that kanye west and seator wilson are so disrectful if they didnt have anything nice to say they should have kept it to their selfs i think that it was so immuaure for kanye to get on stage and disresct talyor swift like that not only is it rude but it's his 2nd time doing something like that he needs to grow up and the same thing go's for senator wilson they need to grow up and learn that everything is not a game there's a time to play and a time to be serious kanye needs to aplogize and so does seantor wilson they wouldn't like it if anybody did that to them

    September 21, 2009 at 6:37 pm |
  562. Eduardo

    I strongly believe that there is a time and place for everything. I think that Kanye West's outburst was simply immature. You don't really say that kind of thing in the middle of someone like Taylor Swift receiving her first music award. Sure that people have the right to say what they feel, but in this case he should have just kept his mouth shut and say the comment later and not ruin Taylor's big moment.

    September 21, 2009 at 6:44 pm |
  563. MARLECA

    Kanye West actions were childish, and he needs to learn how to control his mouth and anger. I believe that if you don't have anything good, to say then you need to keep your mouth closed. I feel that it is okay to voice your opinion about the way you feel, but should it not have it's limits...... as far as having respect for others. In the Kanye West and Taylor Swift situation, he was having no respect for her. After all, if anybody should have been upset about Taylor Swift winning the award, shouldn't it have been Beyonce. Speaking out is okay, but there is a time and a place for everything, and that is what the people fail to realize. I feel that if you speak out in an inappropriate way then you are representing yourself, and it only shows the type of person you are.

    September 21, 2009 at 7:24 pm |
  564. CJP7

    In my opinion, Kanye West should of stayed sitting down quietly. For the reason that, it is very, but very disrespectful to ruin someone's special moment especially when receiving a trophy or award. At an award assembly everyone should be happy even though you think someone else deserved that award or trophy. For Kanye West to disrupt Taylor Swift's special moment he most of been CRAZY. So in my opinion, it was very disrespectful for Kanye West to act like that during Taylor Swift's happy and special moment.

    September 21, 2009 at 9:42 pm |
  565. Katherine

    What Kanye West did to poor Taylor Swift was, well there are no words for it. I am flabbergasted. He did have a right to do what he did by the bill of rights but that still was not cool. That was Taylor's first VMA moonman and West stole her thunder. I give props to Beyoncé for letting Swift finish her acceptance speech. That was nice. There is a time and place for everything. Kanye should have just said to Beyoncé privately"You know, I think you should have one..Blah blah Bnlah". But I do not think the should compare the outburst of West to Serena's because her outburst was not a serious one, it was just rude and caused because she was mad. And the represenative's outburst was just better kept to himself. That was just plain wrong and rude.

    September 21, 2009 at 10:19 pm |
  566. Ariadne

    What Kanye did to Taylor, was just horrible. There is no excuse for it. It was her first time getting an award, she is only 17. Why should her moment be ruined by something so mediocre, as Kanye wanting to praise and point out that Beyonce should have won? He should have just kept the comment to himself. Also I really don't think there ever is a good time to speak out quite like that... maybe if it was a debate then you can speak out and have the right to do so. But it has to be kept respectful, and moral. People should watch what they say, it may not be much to them, but it hurts other people, and you have to be respectful. There is no excuse for rudeness.

    I think that if you have something to say than you should give your opinion.But in a nice way.If your going to say something not nice than you shouldn't say anything.But then agin you have a right to share your opinion.You shouldn't ever make someone feel bad.That's my opinion on what i think.

    taylor swift deserved to win the award and kayne west was wrong to say that taylor didn't deserve to win. he was drunk and should have just been quiet.

    I believe that Kanye's public outburst was okay. He was just voicing his opinion to the public. But Serena William's outburst was inappropriate, because she threatened the reffere, which I'm not suprised she lost the game.

    In my opinion what kanye did was so funny. It was wrong but it was so funny. What sarena did was right he knew what it meant to her and thta was a crappy thing to do. I would have done the same thing as her, if i could play tennis. She was just speakin her mind. She kind of went to far when i saw her racket brake.

    Speaking out is not exceptable when someone else is speaking. Especially if they are saying something in such a public place. Kanye West has done this before, it is disrespectful, and he never learns from his mistakes. If you are a celebrity everyone is watching you. If Kanye wanted to say his opinion he should have waited at least until they interviewed him after the cerimony.

    All of the affomentioned outbursts are completly inappropriate! I'm sure that as soon as these individuals see themselves on T.V, they will see what they've done...However I hope they will all apologize and get over it.

    ok first i;d just like to say that what kanye did to taylor was so RUDE. idc what he said about him drinking before the VMAs what he did was wrong and that whole apology thing such BS. Now towards celebritys speaking out in public i believe they should become more conscious of what they say. They're always in the public eye and for there career and fans they should watch more comes out of there mouths.

    I think it is important to voice your opinion, but at the same time like everything there's is a time and place for that. Ok, if Kanye didn't agree with Taylor winning then that's fine, that's his opinion. Many people also probably thought she didn't deserve it either, but he shouldn't have said anything while she was up there with her moment. So yeah, sometimes i guess it's better to keep your comments to yourself, rather then expressing them whenever or without consideration others. Serena's outburst was another one of those comments that she have kept to herself, because it was just rude the way she expressed it. Also if you do choose to speak out for what you believe in, try to do it with decency, because if not you'll just look ignorant and your point whatever it may be wont get across to anyone.

    I think at no time should a person outburst their comment during a meeting or ceremony. Most people should just wait until that person is finshed. Ifs its a ceremoney for awards, then those people should keep it to themselves. Kanye was just a idiot who dosen't know how to respect anyone and thinks he's better than everyone.If you disagree with something, then keep to yourselve and wait when its all over.

    i think that was way uncalled for! i mean taylor was so sad then! wat a mean thing to do! pshhh! he need to go to his mom and learn some mannors!

  577. Paula

    I think that what kanye did was rude , very rude and immature. Theres a time to express your opinion and a time to be quiet. And while Taylor was giving her speech wasnt the time to speak his opinion. But also people are too imature too. Let it go! Its not like he killed anyone for it to be a huge contreversy like it is right now.

    I like Joe Wilson because he is conservative, but I don't think he should disrespect the President.

    I think that all of the outbursts were completely unneccessary. For Kayne, i think that, that what he did was very disrespectful. There is a time and place for your opinions. If I were Taylor Swift I would not even give him that mic. Really, he could have just told Beyonce on his own time. I mean disrespecting someone nationally is very embarrassing for that person. I wasnt surprised when he did that, he probably wanted the negative attention as usual. For the Senator, What was he thinking that he could just shout out "YOU LIE!" to the president of the United States. Once again there is a time and place for these things or outrageous outbursts. What was going through his head when he decided to just shout out that. I am glad President Obama handeled that situation very proffesional. I wouldn't have. Especially with Kanye. So people, there is a time an place for your opinions to be heard but there are also times when it is not necessary to do that. It's called Respect for each other.

    It's ok to say what you think whenever. I just wouldn't do it in class or during a movie. But most of the time people should say what they think.

  581. Ryan

    I think That Kanye West Should Have not done that. It was mean and rude. He should apoligize to her. I think its all wrong.

    September 23, 2009 at 9:20 am |
  582. Jillian

    Kanye West was acting like a child, immature and insecure. He should apoligize for acting like that and everyone should forget about the whole thing and start over again with a new and respectful attitude.

    Im glad Taylor won the award and I think Kanye West was way out of his mind that night and I just wanted to say GO TAYLOR!!!!

    Personally, Im not a fan of Taylor Swift. I like Kanye West alot better. Im glad that he did that. He was just telling his opinion and the truth.

  585. melissa

    I think that kanye west should NOT of done that because that was completly rude! If he really needed to say something then he could of just said something after Taylor swift got her award.

    September 23, 2009 at 10:39 am |
  586. Kellie

    that was really innapropriate of him to grab the microphone from Taylor. Honestly, in the situation Taylor acted like more of an adult that Kanye did. He said that the reason he did that was because his mother died, but that is no excuse for him to do that. That will affect his career deeply, and he deserves it.

    There is a time and place for everything. Speaking outloud is one of those situations wher you have to think before you speapk. Like Emma said If you dont have anything nice to say dont say anything at all. It was very rude and immature what knaye west. No right at all in doing what he has done. Kanye, you just lost a bunch of fans....

    September 23, 2009 at 4:13 pm |

    I feel that Taylor Swift deserved to win and that Kanye West's outburst was uncalled for and obnoxious.

  590. Fancis

    Speaking out shouldn't have its boundaries at all... but people should be warned about the consequences that may happen if they do speak out. It's like the Laws of the United States, having a freedom a speech. Of course people have a freedom of speech but it’s up to the citizens to choose whether or not to say things or not, but people have to face the facts there will be consequences to everything you say and do, good or bad. So my point is there is no line to draw in general but it is up to the person who’s in the situation to choose whether they want to face the penalties for it or just "hold their tongue".

  591. Isabella

    Public figures always have to watch what they say. They have a lot of responabilities that some don't realize, they are all role models. More likely than not, little kids, teenagers, and adults look up at them and their success. Whatever they do refelcts us. I believe Kanye had a right to say that, BUT not at the time he did. He could have waited or said it in an interview, either way people would have found out. The media is also acting as if he's a murderer, he was out of line, but people come on! There is more important things in life!

    September 23, 2009 at 7:33 pm |
  592. Breanna

    I think that speaking out is appropriate , but it depends on what you are going to speak about. Speaking out is acceptable when its something good. It isn't acceptable when its personal. You have to make sure that you don't too personal. You might come out and speak the wrong things about your personal life

    September 24, 2009 at 10:03 am |
  593. Hannah

    I think he should say sorry because he was really mean

    September 25, 2009 at 11:32 am |
  594. Alyssa

    There is a time for speaking out, but also a time for keeping quiet. If you're going to really put yourself out there and say something in front of cameras and a large audience, you had better be sure that you're saying something that you really want everyone to attribute to your name. I think that in the case of Kanye and the Senator, they were absolutely wrong to speak out in that context, and need to work on their self control.

    September 27, 2009 at 1:39 pm |
  595. Kami

    I think that you should hold your tongue. Like you said, it's gonna effect your career if you're famous. When is the right time to make an "outburst"? Um... never! Seriously but if you do, make it AFTER a speech... more better than inturupting, not much though! 🙂

    September 27, 2009 at 7:00 pm |
  596. Rianne

    I think it is okay to speak out when someone is trying to get you to do something you do not want to, because you have control over your own body,! It’s not better to hold your tongue if they are trying to get you to do anything that is not right, and if it is wrong,. When it is okay to speak out is when you don’t agree with something and if you know you shouldn’t participate in the wrong doing. How is by just saying the words, “NO.” or the words,” Guys we shouldn’t be doing this, it is not right, and we could get in trouble.” When it isn’t okay is when a political speech is going on or when someone is giving a speech.

    I think that Kanye West was completly rude to Taylor Swift she has been good enough to win a fantastic award for best music video and she was so happy and Kanye West just comes and takes her glory away to give it to beyonce when beyonce was happy for taylor i think kanyes career isnt going to be as good now my mom wont let me listen to him anymore because thisd incadent!

    September 30, 2009 at 10:06 am |

    I think what Kanye did was sooo mean!!!! If he wanted to say something like that, he should tell a friend, but not in front of like TV!!!!! If i was Taylor, i would have hit him!! When i saw Kanye say that at the VMAs, i was sooo mad!!!!!! He used to be one of my favorite singers, now hes not!!!:(

    September 30, 2009 at 10:06 am |
  601. Gianni

    I think what Kanyae West did to Taylor Swift was mean stupid and embarissing he should have just let her give her speech anyway Byonce won video of the year.

  602. sierra

    I dont think Kanye West's outburst was nessasary at all. It was so mean and Tailor Swift seems so nice Idont like Kanye very much anymore

  603. Zoee

    I have a huge problem with Kanye West now. I used to think he was alright with ok music but with a huge ego and thought he was so cool. Now it's like how old are you really? He is older then Taylor Swift so you would think he would have at least stayed quiet. It is ridiculous in my oppinion. At least Beyonc'e congratulated her. I am very disapointed.

    September 30, 2009 at 10:09 am |
  604. lexi

    i think kanye shouldnt have said anything to taylor and if he had nothing to say that was nicew he shouldnt have said anything at all and every would eve been ok and taylor happy 🙂 that she won.

    September 30, 2009 at 10:39 am |
  605. S@ftb@llgrl4ev

    I think it was extremely rude, unresponsibe, and be inmature when he jumped on the stage and took the mic from Taylor Swift. She deserved it, and he ruined her spotlight. It was not an adult act. He should think before he acts. He needs to learn manors and let people get there spotlight wether he likes it or not! It was not kind of him. I hope he apologized about his unmaturaly actions. He will probobly loose several fans for acting mean. He should have known better. Taylor Swift is the best singer!!!!

    September 30, 2009 at 10:40 am |
  606. Jenna

    Don't even start me with Kanye! He needs to leave the country and move to somewhere far away. I can not believe him and nobody will look at him the same EVER again. I sure won't! He has tottaly lost his reputation as a hit singer and I surely don't think he'll get it back. He needs to be put in time out for the rest of his life to think about what he did. Especially drinking, but thats his choice not mine.

    September 30, 2009 at 11:16 am |
  607. miaaa.

    i think it was really rude of kanye west to have ruined taylor swifts moment and it also makes him look bad and no he is the one with a bad repp. He is such a jerk and to speak out infront of millions of people watching everywhere just makes it that much worse. Taylor Swift is a great singer and didn't deserve that kind of dis respect from Kanye.

    September 30, 2009 at 11:17 am |
  608. connor

    That was really dumb what Kanye did. Taylor Swift is a very great singer and deserved that award. I thought it was nice of beyonce to let Taylor have her moment that Kanye stoll.

    I think the speaking out that he did unapporiate. Taylor Swift deserved her award in every single way. If you are speaking out you should do it correctly.

  611. Gabe

    I think that even if you disagree with someones opinions, you should at least treat them with respect. That is just abuseing your first amendment. I am very glad that Kanye West got kicked out of the V.M.A awards. I think he should pubilicly apologize to Taylor Swift. Most celebratites are so full of themselves that they can't even be polite. I don't fine that funny when people are "edgy" I just think is rude.

    September 30, 2009 at 11:24 am |
  612. kayla

    i think what he did was stupid and immature. How rude! He thinks hes so bad just because hes rich. Whateverr, he needs to say hes sorry. Its okay to speek out somethings, but somethings are best kept to yourself...

    September 30, 2009 at 11:27 am |
  613. sydney ;D

    i think kanye west was so imature why would you do that to someone that did nothing to anyone or anything or to kanye wow he was a huge jerk it was wrong of what he did to taylor swift

    September 30, 2009 at 11:28 am |
  614. :) SUMMER (:

    I watch the VMA's just to watch the New Moon Trailer. But I saw Taylor Swift get up on stage and so I paused it. (I had recorded it because I wasn't going to be able to see it the night it came out.) I watched Taylor Swift win her award and then the camera was on the audience. It flickered back suddenly and Kanye West was on the screen In my opinion it was rude and NOT cool at all. Sure he was voicing his opinion, but not infront of everyone and taking away Taylor Swift's moment. But Beyonc`e being the person she was, let Taylor have her shining moment. I just think that Kanye West should apologize to her and the fans. How would he like it if someone had done that to him?

    September 30, 2009 at 11:29 am |
  615. Mausam

    I think that you should speak out only when you need to. It isn't right when you do it unessicarily. He should just forget it

    September 30, 2009 at 11:31 am |
  616. SARAH

    I think that these people shouldn't have done those things. If they wanted to say something, they should have spoken to whoever they needed to after a speech, anouncement etc.

  617. rachel

    I think that Kanye was a jerk for doing what he did at the VMA's 2009 because he souldn't have done that and if he got that done to him I don't think that he would appreciate it and Taylor Swift was very sad. It was her first VMA and he ruined it for her. I don't know how she could have got back on stage and preformed with what happened. 🙂
    Kanye West is MEAN!!!!!!!!!
    grr! i dont like him!

  619. Ben

    I think that what Kanye West did was wrong, immature, and rude. I also think that people are making too big of a deal with this. Yes it was rude but he should still be able to express his opinion. I think this will affect his carreer in both a negative and positive way. People will not like him much more becsause they think he is rude but this comment has also made him more famous because now everyone is talking about what he did. I still think Beyonce had the better music video.

  623. Regan

    I think that there is a certain appropriate time and place to speak out against someone. Lets say you were in a debate and someone said something that you do not agree with, then you can speak out as much as you want. But if you are not at a debate and it is not an approprite time then you should not speak out or it could be considered RUDE! So dont if it is not the appropriate time and/or place.

  626. Alex

    If Kanye West has an opinion about something, he has the right to say it. Freedom of speech. It WAS necessary because obviously if he had to shout something out he either felt offended or he thought something wasn't right or true. He had complete authority to do what he did and I think everybody should pay less attention to this and pointless little things. There are kids starving, The world id dying because of our careless choices in society, we are running out of oil, Kanye West's outburst means nothing.

    September 30, 2009 at 1:19 pm |
  627. Dustin

    I think Kayne is rude and should of waited for beyonce's award for music video to say he liked it. Not on Taylor's award.

    September 30, 2009 at 1:20 pm |
  628. ian

    WOW FIRST OF ALL KANYE WAS JUST SPEAKING ON HIS MIND AND TAYLOR SWIFT SHOULDNT EVEN BE THERE SHES A COUNTRY SINGER:( COUNTRIE STINKS KANYE SHOULD OF TOLD HER TO HOME. iTS MTV SHE DOSNT BELONG.

    September 30, 2009 at 1:21 pm |
  629. Andrew

    I think that Kanye couldve waited to the end of the speach to say that and not just take the mic away from Taylor Swift. but i think he handled the public very nicely and apoloigized and appeared on the Jay leno show to talk about it instead of just easily canceling the show and not show up. I think he is very sorry and i think he is a good person and a real man.

    September 30, 2009 at 1:22 pm |
  630. mememem

    i think that it was really mean of kanye to took the microphone out of taylors hand and just freaked out it was really mean. i think he should apoligize to everyone who was wachin and who was there also apoligize mostly to taylor swift. also that was very rude of that other guy to spaek out when the president was giving a speech weather you like a person or not you still should respect them and listen to what they say. so that guy should also apoligize to the president for what he did and that should affect him.

    September 30, 2009 at 1:22 pm |
  631. Taylor

    I think Kenye West had good intentions. He wanted to congradulate Taylor but, what he said didnt come out right. I do aggre with the media when they said he shouldnt of jumped up on stage during her acceptance speech. That was increidbly rude but, we all make mistakes and this little one shouldnt make a diffrence. There are much more important issues in the world than what happened on an award show. With best respect to both of them.

    September 30, 2009 at 1:23 pm |
  632. Jake

    I think that kayne shouldn't have done that. He should have waited and should have been smart and not acted so stupid. He huet taylor's fellings and made alot of people mad....... he should have waited for beyonce's award.

    September 30, 2009 at 1:25 pm |
  633. Bradley

    I think what Kane West did was rude,disrespectful,and was not kind at all he should be more kind and be nicer.
