God Wanted Kanye West to Ruin Taylor Swift’s VMA Win

I love Kanye West in the same way that I love David Brent from The Office: he is a complete and utter asshole and watching him publicly embarrass himself is satisfying on an almost spiritual level.

Kanye is all about Jesus these days, presumably because he hasn’t figured out that he himself isn’t Jesus. A common question for Kanye is basically a more tactful version of “Kanye, you’re a Christian, how do you reconcile that with the fact that you’re also a huge asshole?” as if every televangelist doesn’t exist.

With all that in mind, here’s how Kanye explained his decision to rush the stage when Taylor Swift was accepting the VMA for ‘You Belong with Me’ and say she didn’t deserve it, via Uproxx:

If God didn’t want me to run on stage and say, “Beyonce had the best video,” He wouldn’t have sat me in the front row. I would’ve been sitting in the back. He wouldn’t have made it the first award. And [He] wouldn’t have made it so ridiculous of an idea ’cause I had never heard of this person before that night. And “Single Ladies” is, like, one of the greatest videos of all time… And I was only drinking Hennessy because I didn’t want to go to the awards show ’cause it was a set-up!

Yes, that’s right, God wanted Kanye to cause trouble. It was definitely God and not some MTV intern trying to stir up drama and boost ratings.
