It's not so much that interrupting Taylor Swift's acceptance speech was a dick move, though it was - it's that he's the only person on earth to really care who wins a Video Music Award (motto: "Like the Grammys, only less relevant"), which has as much to do with music as high school Most Likely to Succeed nods have to do with likelihood or success.

On the other hand, it's sort of endearing and humanizing that someone who's trying to be the coolest, hippest guy on earth nurses one of the silliest and most inexplicable grievances in popular culture.
