Wiggage Claim



This wasn't the first time. Get over it.

Last weekend a tragedy occurred on 3 continents.

On Friday night (September 11) Beyonce peformed at Jay's 9/11 concert. (that concert by the way was EPIC. Mary came out and killed it, Kanye came out and killed it, Diddy came out and vogued, Kid Cudi came out and killed it, Barack came out and freestyled to "We Run This Town". It was truly a historical event. YouTube it.)

On Saturday (September 12) After Beyonce snatched wigs in NYC she flew 8 hours to Europe to watch Jay-Z open for Coldplay.

On Sunday (September 13) The strumpet then flew 8 hours back to NYC to rehearse Sunday morning and snatch more hairpieces Sunday night. Then won Video of Year,  then hopped on a 23 hour flight to a sold-out show in Australia, and killed it again.

If your wig was snatched by Beyonce over the weekend please contact the Wig Crypt Wig Claims Hotline, give Angie your wig ticket number and we will overnight your wig back to you.

I enjoyed the VMAs mainly because it provided a truly shocking moment. In this age of internet and Twitter, big-mouthed back-up dancers, and blogs trying to give "EXCLUSIVE!" information it's very hard to keep an award show secret, so when Kanye staggered on stage it was refreshing because I was truly surprised.

As for Kanye's outburst I really don't care. Most of you WISH someone would jump on stage and defend the flops you stan for but that's not really relevant to the point. You just hate that Beyonce was the focal point of yet ANOTHER event.

I feel that Taylor Swift deserved to finish her speech in the same way Kanye got to finish his Grammy speeches, and the same way Beyonce got to finish all of her speeches including both of the times that she won Best Female Video.

However I think I understand where Kanye was coming from.

MTV pimped Taylor Swift out for ratings. In reality ALL celebrities get used for ratings but in Taylor's case it was more obvious because MTV historically hasn't paid this much attention to country music. Shania Twain was nominated for Best Female Video in 1998, and even though her album sold 20 million copies in the U.S. she was not invited to perform. Although Shania's video was actually a great video and deserved the nomination, MTV obviously did not feel that she was relevant to the VMA broadcast and their "audience" (not unlike how they felt Black artists back in the day). Even at the height of their fame the New Kids on the Block never performed at the VMAs and only got one nomination for a technical award. 15 years ago Taylor Swift would NOT have been invited to perform regardless of how many records she sold, and the Jonas Brothers would not have been invited last year, mainly because MTV adhered to certain "rules of cool" and just being popular didn't guarantee you an invitation on the stage.

Around about 1999 the line between "great video" and "popular video" became very thin, and MTV started giving performance invitiations (and actual nominations) to any and everybody with a hit record, regardless of the artistic merit of their videos. If a head of lettuce got a #1 album, MTV would book it to perform on the MTV Awards with Madonna and give it 6 nominations.
Taylor Swift is a talented young lady who is deserving of ALL of her success, but honestly Sunday night was my first time seeing her video, and I seriously doubt that she would have received an invitation to perform if she didn't have the biggest selling album of any (living) artist of 2009.

So basically I was left believing that she got an award just for showing up and for attracting the millions of people who bought her album to watch the VMAs. There's really nothing wrong with that since it was a fair exchange for MTV using her for ratings. But when you look at it from an artistic standpoint you can see Kanye's frustration. Kanye clearly takes his music and the accompaning visuals very seriously. He devotes an insane amount of time and money to his music, videos, and live shows. Perhaps a little too much time and money considering the attention span of our generation, and the fact that most of his videos will only get played on YouTube and iPhones. 

When you take your art that seriously you expect others to take it as seriously. When there is an award for Best Video you somehow expect them to give it to the "best" video. I'm aware that what's the best to one might not be the best for others, but the name of the category was Best Female Video. To me that evokes striking and memorable images of female iconography, strong female images, and I really can't think of a more striking image than Beyonce grinding her Creole Catfish into the camera in the Single Ladies video.

And I feel that if Beyonce had the Best OVERALL video of the year then one could reason that she also had the Best Female Video especially since Taylor Swift was not nominated for Video of the Year.

So for MTV to give an award to somebody just for showing up has to irritate Kanye on many levels.

I feel that the right thing to do would have been to give Beyonce every award she was nominated for (with the exception of Best Special Effects and Best Art Direction. And I could've lived with Lady Gaga taking Best Pop Video)  MTV instead decided to ration the awards out like government cheese ( © Alexyss Tylor)

But that's all I have. I'm really tired of hearing about it and thinking about it.

And don't say I wouldn't like it if someone interrupted Beyonce's speech. First of all that would never happen. Julius would've sliced and pepper-sprayed Kanye and Lil' Mama about 18 different ways before they even made it on the stage.

This really doesn't change my perception of Kanye, and still I plan to buy a ticket to see him and Lady Gaga be dramatic cunts in DC if/when the tour gets here. But I what do I know...I stan for talent.

Congratulations to Beyonce on her 8th VMA, and congratulations to Jaquel Knight on his first VMA and to Frank Gatson on his 5th VMA.

SIDENOTE - And I'm usually not a fan of Fire Engine Freakum Red either on Beyonce's hips or on Mama Tina's lips, but Beyonce really made this work for her.

This is also my 100th Post. That means over the past 24 months I have posted about 4 times a month.

That's a damn shame.

Those numbers are more depressing than _____________________________'s album sales.

I'll let you fill in the blank.

I just can't deal with you people right now.

You forgot to mention the controversy with the sportscaster who said going from Steelers to Lions is like going from dating Beyonce to dating Whoppi Goldberg. Beyonce just having ppl singing her praises all over the damn place!

PS. Good move Matty! You turned Miss Bey into Saint Fierce with that ingenious move! Thanks Kanye...you just sent Bey's stock up to 2 million! Thanks Rihanna...by performing/associating with Kanye you just lost a whole lotta potential album (in your case singles) sales!

H.C said...

The truth.

I understand Kanye's need to speak up but he could have chosen a better time, people need to move on, it's not the end of the world,

Beyonce...I just can't with this bitch, how can someone be so cruel on stage & soo gracious off stage!

I'm done with people thinking Matty is the one who told B' to give up her speech time or thinking the shyt was staged...They fail to understand that Beyonce is 28 years old grown ass married woman, she been in this fucked up industry for over a decade, she can think for herself & is very much capable of doing nice things to people.

Congrat on your 100th post! Thanks Beyonceitis for making this blog! we love you for it!

M.J. said...

You kept it 100 for 100 posts. *in Shao Khan voice* Superb!


I was thinking earlier today if Lil Marlon jumped on stage with Queen Creole, she'll be feasted on like those humans in Dawn of the Dead.

Yep, We all know Beyonce cant act and that shit looked pretty real to me. I mean Monica on twitter said that sounds like something Beyonce would do, and we all know Monica is "real".

I guess she cant win for losing.

Happy 100th post Beyonceitis, I'm throwing you a surprise party, what do you want?

M.J. said...

@ Billy,


Monica is as real as Cassie's singing.

monique said...

Congrats on your 100th! I've been waiting to see what your reaction was to it. I never saw Taylor Swift's video but I really didn't think she'd win..I mean how many times was Beyonce's video recreated from SNL to the streets of London. MTV is made up of asshats.

Anonymous said...

Billy, you will not come for Saint Fierce. Beyonce can act. People need to hop off the bull. People go out of their way not to give this woman all the credit she fully deserves. When the girl is sitting up their with her Oscar I wonder what'll be said then. I want to know where everybody is getting their record sales info from. Beyonce and Taylor have sold about the same figure worldwide. Also, Beyonce has 9 VMAs now as a solo artist. But yeah, she deserved a minimum of 3 more for Best Female video, Best Cinematography and Best Pop video.

Billy said...

Srry Anon I was adopting the hater mindset. You know how they say Beyonce cant act and shes fake. Well if Beyonce cant act then how can she be convincing at being fake?

You see the fuckery?

and for M.J dont come for Monica's realness lest you face the wrath of Sandra Rose

Rissa: Head of Daily S.O.S. Operations said...

First thing I thought when Kanye did that (except for to tell my friend to rewind it and we ended up watching it three times) was that people were going to find some way to tie this into Beyonce and blame her.
I was a little off but still close as people say now that Matthew is pulling the strings and that Jay-Z got "mad" about her giving up her acceptance time. Whatever. I digress.

Taylor Swift needs to thank Kanye for making her relevant to people who don't stan for Twilight and were alive for the Berlin Wall coming down.

Also, I laughed my ass off. Shoot, it was all good until Beyonce decided to let Taylor Swift be great (it was nice but I mean come on...you're ruining peoples perceptions that you're pure, unadulterated evil Bey!).

Rissa: Head of Daily S.O.S. Operations said...

Oh! And congratulations on 100!

Kanye West said...

Yo, Beyonceitis readers, Imma let you finish but I just have to say that BeyonceWorld has the BEST comments. Period.

Taylor obviously had more fans willing to vote, hence the outcome of who the award went to (that's if everything went as MTV announced months ago).

...Congrats on 100

I LOVE LOVE LOVE kanye. Am i the only one wishing for someone to come to his defense? i mean people are acting like he got on that stage and beat the hell out of that alien looking person. it is not that deep. it was funny and her ungrateful ass got to finish her speech. Seriously though, why didn't she thank B on stage or on the VIEW. but then again this alien looking bitches(you know the other one i'm talking about) are so ungrateful

I Stan For Greatness! said...

I don't give a damn about that pale ass mouse looking as bitch Taylor Swift. No one would give a shit if Kanye had interrupted Keyshia Cole or someone. But since she is white virginity personified people calling for boycotts? FUCK ALL OF THAT!

Beyonce owned the show, was the show, and that's that.

Sing it with me acapela IIII NEEEED A MAAAAN!

Yay!!!! And please stay around for many years to come Beyonceitis. This is the only place I can come and show my deep, internal, everlasting commitment for stanning for Beyonce in a hater- free zone. Anyway, about the VMA's:


-actually held my damn attention for the first time time since Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff won an award
-Janet KILLED that tribute to Michael
-Beyonce , excuse me Sasha, KILLED her performance!!!!! I ran through the streets praising her name for about twenty minutes after she left the stage
-Kanye, oh Kanye......I love you baby, but either your grief over your moms passing, that bald white girl who I hate (hello tramp), or that Hennessy bottle have you messed up something serious. PLEASE dissapear and come back sane again. Thank you
-Um, WTF is with Jermaine Jacksons hairline????




That is all.

Ye ,you need to learn the meaning of the word :FATALITY.
I know you love the genuis movements and work but dont take MTV that seriously.


Like someone said,Bey deserves more than 3 awards but I WAS LIKE :THIS BEYONCEITIS IS RIGHT AGAIN.....
Beyonceitis is a soothsayer.

I hate you sincerely.
That's why you're beautiful.

To quote you :Happy 100th post anniversary and congratulations for becoming a better version of yourself beyonceitis.

LOL Beyonce fans are so insecure, writing these ridiculous articles hyping her up, she's a nobody worldwide, she gets owned by every other female popstar in the rest of the world and if it wasn't for the whole Kanye/Taylor thing wich was probably staged, nobody would even mention her. Sorry, that's the cold hard truth.

Anonymous said...

oh, whatever! lol, taylor damn swift was multi platinum long before some damn vma nom. she's a country teen queen! mtv uses artists and they use mtv-let's not single out taylor swift. i LOVE "love story" so I'm happy she won a vma, what the fuck,it's a vma. i love beyonce and have donated hundreds to her cause but lets not make taylor the fall guy in some stupid ass young and dumb mtv demographic plot or some shit. and beyonce's performance was OKAY...single ladies dancersx850 slight mixed (not even chopped n'screwed)...not mind blowing by Bey standards.

Kanye West said...

Yo' Beyonceitis, I'm very happy for your 100th post and I'ma let you finish but LIL CREOLE PIMP @ creolepimp.blogspot.com HAS 273 POSTS AND IT'S BEEN AROUND 1 YEAR AND YOU BEEN AROUND 2.

Beyonce is a nobody worldwide...that's hilarious!

speaking of worldwide...I just assumed that the video in this post is that of Kanye attacking Taylor on stage, can somebody please tell me if it really is??

the video doesn't play in my country...

@1:24 AM
Lady Gaga ,I am really happy for you ..I 'll let you finish but this performance was one of the greatest of sasha fierce's career cause:

1.The vocal was on fire
2.She has on a FREA-KUM LEOTARD
3.sasha is gettin better with time.She was connected with the public like in her own Tour.Sasha fierce is taking over the shy beyoncé and for me it's a huge progress.
So yes..the greatest.

Muzi said...

I think the Kanye West thing is so irrelevant right now. The reason why I came to check this wigcrypt is for a follow up from the last post about a fork and a flashlight. What about the kickazz Beyonce performance-certainly in my opinion the most thrilling of her VMA career.
You see this is another problem of 09 in that gimmicks are standing in the way of artistic considerations. A damn shame.
Great post tho! On point as always.

Anonymous said...

um, Miss. 8:46am, I am not Gaga (even though I love her crazy ass)...but that was not her best live performance. Deja Vu at the BET Awards and Fashion Rocks, Baby Boy at the VMAs, her last two tours and the grand daddy of them all, her Get Me Bodied at the BET Awards a few years back... all eclipse the single ladies of Sunday night. But she was younger then and those were dance and boogie songs and single ladies is much more of a concept record w/a concept video. I'll give her that but Get Me Bodied was live performance GOLD. And that deja vu is my fave Beyonce lacefront, hands down.

Anonymous said...

Just as I predicted on the Fork and Flashlight post that Jay Kanye Rihtarded song was knocked off the top 10 on Billboard. Hahahahahaha! Thanks Kanye!

PS. I do NOT think it should count as YOUR #1 song if you are just doing background vocals on someone else's track ehem Keri ehem Rihanna

IVORY'S INTELLECT said...

100% cosign. How can lose best female video, but then win video of the year? Surely video of the year means that your video was better than best female and best male video categories?

If Swift's video was so good, why wasn't she nominated for video of the year too? It was a sympathy award.

Plus I'm sick of people saying Swift is soooo nice. How do you know? Just because she's white, blonde and young doesn't mean she's innocent? Britney started the same way...

MTV doesn't give the awards based on the votes.

Beyonce didn't win the award because Taylor did & the reason why Taylor won is stated in this post.

Anonymous said...

Yea I was told the NOMINEES were based on votes, but I didn't get a clear answer as to how the winners were chosen.

Back in the day they used to let music video professionals (directors, designers, choreographers) determine the nominees AND winners. They had the Viewer's Choice for the 12 year olds, but this was before the internet, and it was a 1-900 number that cost 95 cents a call, so usually people only voted once. But other awards were determined by professionals.

Now every gay and dyslexic Britney stan can just flood MTV.com when ever they feel like it.

The game done changed.

How can the Video of the year named SINGLE ""L-A-D-I-E-S"" lose the best Fe-ma-le video award?

Anonymous said...

Lets be honest, here. This blogger is right on the damn money. Racism at its best. But over all I think people like the idea that the black girl (Beyonce) the most talented took a back seat to the fragile white girl. Who didn't thank Beyonce for the gesture on stage.

Jaz said...

White people secretly had it in for Kanye since All Falls Down. And he enjoys giving them stuff to complain about. And I enjoy his stan outbursts for saint Bey. So everyone wins, right?

Taylor Swift DESERVED that award. Her video was cute, flirty and fun and, (oh my gosh, like it totally went with the song.} What a concepy an artist actually making a video that coincides with thier song. Beyonce wore a black leotard with two other ladies and proceeded to grind into the camera. That is not a great video. It's a mediocre video, to accompany a great song. You all think Beyonce' is the second coming so of course she could sing in a brown paper bag and you all would think it was the best video of all time. Single Ladies video is wack and I was disappointed. I don't care who disagrees, it's trash. Period. And Kanye West told his truth and made an ass of himself doing it. But I do admire his ability to speak his mind and not give a fu*k what people say. He just did it at the wrong time and was incredidbly insensitive and rude.
