Michael Jackson's father Joe has urged awards show bosses to ban Kanye West from all showbusiness bashes for good after the rapper stormed onstage at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (13Sep09) to protest Taylor Swift's Best Female Video win.
The thrilled country singer was in the middle of her acceptance speech when ill-mannered West grabbed the microphone from her and declared her award belonged to Beyonce.
The outspoken star has since been chastised by stars like Pink, Kelly Clarkson and Katy Perry for ruining Swift's magic moment - her first MTV VMA victory.
Joe Jackson, who was in the audience at New York's Radio City Music Hall, admits he was stunned by West's ill-advised protest - because the rapper had been talking to the Jackson family patriarch just minutes before.
He tells TMZ.com, "I had just gotten through speaking to him, he was introducing me to his girlfriend (Amber Rose) and then three minutes later he jumped up on stage. And people booed Kanye all night."
Jackson wants West to be fully punished for his behaviour and insists a permanent ban from future awards shows and events is the way to go: "I don't know what he was doing, he jumped up on stage and snatched that microphone out of that poor girl's hand.
"They should blackball him out of showbusiness for that. He just leapt (sic) up there; that was bad."
West took to his online blog moments after his outburst and apologised to Swift for interrupting her speech. He has since apologised again and is expected to make a public TV apology on Monday night (14Sep09) when he appears on premiere episode of The Jay Leno Show with Beyonce's husband Jay-Z.

Joe Jackson needs to shut up because i havent see him shed a tear since his sons death. Period he launched his record label what 24 hours after michael passed. Now thats ill annered. All Joe Jackson is about is his money period. He doesnt care about his kids or his WIFE( which inoticed he showed up with some chick with oinflated boobs) So he shouldnt have a say so in anything. Karma is bad and he better believe it

Ban him and do not support his label or others who give monetry support to him. He hijacked a earlier live performance over Bush politics and now has done same on a very personal and unfair basis. He is a serious liability to any sponsor or record label. I have deleted all songs from him and WILL NEVER buy again of his and will refrain from purchases from those who support him. Very bad taste and character, go dig a hole and climb in it Kanye or I will be glad to dig it for you and give you directions on how to jump in it, it will be higher ground that what you stand on now

The only time that I agreed with Kanye was when he went against Bush because it was the truth and it was very appropriate, especially in the lax in helping those poor victims of Katrina. But as far as anything else goes he needs to stop with the antics..He clearly can't separate the artist from a human being..he is a very superficial and vain young man.

This is one time you have to give Joe Jackson credit - you would never see a Jackson acting so disrespectful - their father would kill them and rightfully so.

Kenya is an inmature jerk! What he did to Taylor Swift ...took away from what was suppose to be a tribute to Michael... ended up focusing on him ... the next day instead of every one talking about the tribute ended up talking about Kenya ... just another bad image for rappers... he should be ban for awhile
