Very interesting morning in the celebrity blogosphere. If you have no idea what is going on with Kanye West and last night’s VMAs (and you have been under a rock for the last 24 hours), here is a video recap:

Taylor Swift Wins Best Female Video

What I found most interesting was how much boo-ing of Kanye went on throughout the remainder of the show—all of his nomination readings were pretty hostile. This guys is gonna need a good spin doctor; people are PISSED. (Unless, of course, this was an MTV staging, but I doubt it.)

What I saw was a pretty narcissistic and aggressive male who totally stepped in the space of a passive—and young—female and silenced her.

What is coming forth in the commentary about this incident today, however, notes nothing of the aggression of a male against a female but issues related to race: a black man invading a white girl.

So what did you think of last night’s Kanye/Swift moment at the VMAs? Do you see race involved here?
