Kanye West Feels Celebrity Backlash, Swift Earns Support

Not long after Kanye West’s now infamous on stage rant at the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday, fans and celebrities hit Twitter. Blasting the rapper, who is often lauded for his talent, a number of celebrities including Capitol Records’ Jaicko, say Kanye lost cool points. “Cmon kanye…I’m disappointed in u bro…u just lost a couple points from me,” Jaicko wrote late Sunday. West’s rant, which included grabbing the mic from Swift, also upset Kelly Rowland. Recognizing the stolen moment, like Beyonce mentioned before giving Swift the floor to speak during her Video of the Year acceptance speech, Rowland wrote: “I LOVE Kanye and I LOVE TAYLOR, and OF COARSE I LOVE B!! But NO ONE should have a moment taken away from them…” While sources say Taylor Swift and her mother took West’s interruption hard, allegedly crying backstage, they now have a new group of supporters including Trey Songz and Keri Hilson. Songz, tweeting Swift, wrote “you deserve all you receive beautiful, let no man tell you different. :)” Keri Hilson, admiring Swift’s return to the stage later in the evening, like many others, wrote “YAAAAAY! Taylor got her moment!!” In related news, MTV has confirmed that Kanye West was asked to leave. For more on that story, click HERE.
