I don't have TV so I usually don't watch award shows, but I happened to stumble across the video of whatever music awards the Kayne West/Taylor Swift fiasco occurred in. No need to comment on Mr. West's behavior, the rest of the world has that covered, I wanted to add my 2 cents with a comment about Beyonce, who pulled that situation out of the gutter with a level of grace and poise that we don't see much anymore these days.
In case you are one of the 3 people on the planet who is not talking about this, here's a brief synopsis: Kayne West grabbed the microphone out of Taylor Swifts hand during her acceptance speech, and yelled something like "Beyonce made the best video ever blah blah".
Later when Beyonce was on stage, in what must have been a very uncomfortable situation for her, she simply said that she knew how much it had meant to her to get her first award nomination and then called Miss Swift back out on stage so "she could have her moment in the sun."
Elegant. More of that please.
