So yes, I hold the same off the record view Obama does on what Kanye did at the VMA's. And interrupting anyone for the next year would be referred to as 'The Kanye' however what I'm more interested to talk about is the secret to Taylor Swifts popularity.
Ok, I admit I have been listening to her online before she even gained radio popularity (Closet country music liker, i know, its kinda like listening to Britney Spears, fun yet kinda embarrassing to admit coz my fav band of ALL time is Third Eye Blind). 'Picture to burn' and 'Our song' we're cute, cheeky-ish songs but what really made her commercially, in Malaysia at least, would be the string of songs that came after.
And i quote a few of the lines in her songs below:
Teardrops on my guitar
"I'll bet she's beautiful, that girl he talks about
And she's got everything that I have to live without"
(Note: Blonde Hair/Blue eyes)
You belong with me (Video of the Year)
"She wears high heels, I wear sneakers She's Cheer Captain and I'm on the bleachers Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find
That what you're looking for has been here the whole time"
(Here shes rocking the fake geek look)
Don't follow? The secret to her success is that she is a super hot skinny blonde singing 'ugly' (Official statement is i said 'Regular') girl songs. Because regardless of how charming the songs are, nobody would give your parrot half a cracker if someone unattractive sang it. Yes, you boo me and say talent is important. And don't get me wrong, i like actual talent and as proof half my ipod artists don't have pictures on them. A good in between would be like Michelle Branch or something but she didn't win a VMA ya.
But there are pretty good looking singers (on a rapper scale) coming up with cocky morale boosting hits like 'Good Life' and touching the sky *cough*cough*kanye*. Or a couple other rappers for that matter who didn't get a whole South Park episode dedicated to showing them what a prick they really are.

So Taylor Swift being gorgeous and blonde and singing bout all the guys she could only dream for comes off as sweetly modest and we all can secretly indulge in the lil emo girl inside us that wasn't a cheerleader her entire life. (No I will not insert picture of me with ex pom poms and pleated skirt here)
And on a completely honest note, admit it. We all find Beyonce's Single Ladies a lot more captivating as a whole. I do think Taylors Swifts music is great thought, but the video that won left a lot lacking for me and my low-tv-multi-tasking attention span. So with this i gotta agree with Kanye but not on how he expressed it.
Kanye didn't interrupt me yay!
But check these Meme pics i got from SxePhil on Phillydtv.
..a lil too soon ya but hey :p
