Catching up

Hey everyone, It's been a loooooong time. I have been kind of pressed for time ever since school started. I've been really busy juggling 5 classes, my full-time job, a new "friend", old friends, and for the past week . . . STREP THORAT! Everyone tells me that I pretty much got sick by not taking care of myself (you know not sleeping enough or eating well), but I can't help it. When life comes at you fast there is nothing you can do but move twice as fast.
So, I’m trying to catch up with the rest of the world after a week of fighting a nasty infection. The first thing I see after healing? Kanye West stealing Taylor Swift’s moment on stage. Now, like most of the American populace, I thought that Kanye was a huge jerk and had no right to go up on stage and steal the spotlight. From what I hear, Kanye has apologized and said that what he did was wrong. I’m thinking his issues go deeper than Beyonce’s losing out to Taylor Swift. People are now talking about boycotting his music and how he deserves to be banned from future MTV award shows, but seriously, why? He didn’t go up there and beat Taylor Swift with the freakin’ Moon Man or anything serious. He was just drunk and made a fool of himself on T.V. I know he’s done and said some other ridiculous things, but I mean isn’t that what Hollywood is all about? Starting up things so that people get interested in you? All the stars on that award show have at one point or another done or said something stupid and caused some sort of controversy, but they moved on. What’s worse is that now THEY are taking stabs at Kanye too, like they have never been in his shoes.
Anyway, my point isn’t to defend Kanye or anything, but I think people shouldn’t judge him as harshly as they have. At the end of the day we're all human, and everyone acts like a nut sometimes, especially celebrities, so why is everyone overreacting?
