Taylor Swift and being a class act.

Okay, I'm sure many of you saw Kanye West's obnoxious mic grab at the VMA's the other night. What's even sadder is that he did it to Taylor Swift. To her credit she didn't get mad or say anything mean. Then Beyonce brought Taylor back up onto stage later so that she could finish her acceptance speech. Now that's a class act. And almost across the board, Kanye is being blasted for his bad behavior.

I loved seeing these artists stick up for Taylor when her moment was robbed. It's what we all need to do for each other. And you know, in high school there are the mean girls who treat others badly, knock you down and ridicule you. But those mean girls grow up. And they don't usually get nicer on their own. They become mean frenemies and mean moms. So unfortunately, dealing with mean people never quite goes away. But when we watch out for one another, when we speak truth about those around us, when we love...that is amazing. And it affects those around us in amazing ways.

So, back to Taylor. Below is the video she won for, and I have to say, I love it. Because nice girls - they don't come in last place. Not in the end.

Thanks. I hadn't seen the video, and now I know Taylor's got talent and class.
