Obama Calls Kanye West “Jackass” for MTV Outburst

In what sounded like an off-the-record conversation before a press conference on Tuesday, President Barack Obama called Kanye West a “jackass” for rudely interrupting Taylor Swift acceptance speech during the MTV VMAs on Sunday.

“I thought that was really inappropriate, you know. I mean it’s like, she’s gettin’ an award, what’re you butting in? I hear you. I agree with you. The young lady seems like a perfectly nice person, she’s getting her award, what’s he doing up there? He’s a jackass.”

Obama also made light of the informal banter and the tendency for the press to scrutinize his every word and action by saying, “Come on guys, cut the President some slack, I’ve got a lot on my plate,” and went on to refer to his fly catching incident which was caught on tape and blown out of proportion.

Do You Agree With Kanye West’s Outburst at the MTV VMAs?

kanye-west-taylor-swift-MTVEven though Kanye West was out of line when he interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech for best female video at the MTV VMAs on Sunday night, we kind of think he was right in declaring that Beyonce “had one of the best videos of all time!”

Everyone was doing the “Single Ladies” dance, from the President to Justin Timberlake, so how did country singer Taylor Swift end up with the VMA for best female video? And coincidentally, Kanye had an outburst in 2004 when Gretchen Wilson, a country artist, beat him out of the best new artist award at the American Music Awards. He fumed, “I left like I was definitely robbed and I refused to give any politically correct … comment. I was the best new artist of the year!” He even alluded to a conspiracy of some sorts.

Does Kanye have a grudge against country music? Is country music grinding it’s boot on his neck holding him down?

Model Chanel Iman May Host Revival of MTV’s House of Style

MTV is reviving its popular 1990s show House of Style and is reportedly reaching out to Blindie’s fave up-and-coming model Chanel Iman to host.

According to the New York Post, the music network is also reaching out to Leonardo DiCaprio’s on-and-off-again girlfriend Bar Refaeli to possibly host as well.

The show, which made such models as Cindy Crawford and Rebecca Romijn accessible to Gen X, went off the air in 2000.

Blindie Bids Bye Bye: MTV Cancels Daily Countdown Show TRL

MTV’s Total Request Live, a relic in boy-band and pop tart history, is going off the air in November after ten years.

The show, which made household names out of Carson Daly and Vanessa Minnillo, is a standing pillar of our youth.

Blindie can’t help but to love this teen-crazed series for showing us that Mariah Carey was looney when she stripped down in 2001 to some gold short shorts and handed out Popsicles to the audience while host Daly looked dumbfounded.

Will Smith As Captain America?

Are the rumors true? Has Will Smith been approached to play the patriotic superhero Captain America?

“I heard they offered Will Smith ‘Captain America,’” actor Derek Luke slipped during an interview with MTV. “Just shows you how times have changed.”

With films like Independence Day (1996) I, Robot (2004), and Hancock (2008) under his belt, Smith has long since proven himself as a highly-bankable action star, making Hollywood history with eight straight movies to rake in more than $100 million in July.

Although Marvel has denied to Ain’t It Cool News that Smith has been approached, Blindie is still hoping that “times have changed.”

And if we don’t get to see a black man in the White House, at least we can see one as an American superhero.
