Psst, Jay-Z: Everyone knows it was a stunt now

MTV and Jay-Z are still hoping that people treat Kanye West's "incident" like it was something that happened, rather than something that was scripted:

Jay-Z has known Kanye West for many years, so when he watched West interrupt Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards, he probably wasn't as surprised as a lot of people.

"He's just a super-passionate person, and of course it was rude because it was [Swift's] moment, but that's the way he really felt. [But] he's been that passionate from his first record."

Thing is - regardless of motivation - the line was delivered in a totally passionless manner as to make this seem a rather unlikely explanation, isn't it?
