Kanye West's embarrassing MTV Video Music Awards antics has irked the editors of one of the country's leading newspapers. PopWrap, New Your Post's entertainment blog, has declared "A Year Without Kanye" to punish the superstar rapper for his outlandish behavior.

On Sunday's MTV VMA telecast, 19-year-old Taylor Swift beat Beyonce and other pop stars' music video for the Best Female Video category for her "You Belong with Me" entry.

While Swift gushed about her win, West stormed on stage and grabbed the mic from her, saying, "Taylor, I'm really happy for you, I'm gonna let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time."

West was booed by the audience and Swift, who was left shocked after the incident, was given a standing ovation.

West later apologized to Swift on his Website, but remains adamant that Beyonce should have won.

Although the backlash was immediate, with almost every one expressing their scorn for West's reprehensible behavior, PopWrap editors Ryan Brockington and Jarett Wiselman think that West deserve a punishment greater than mere criticism.

They said, "This is just the latest in a long line of ridiculously overblown antics we've been treated to by the rapper and we here at PopWrap have had enough."

"Sure he apologized, but now he needs to atone. This is the same man who earlier this year asked to be addressed as 'Martin Louis The King Jr," all because he slapped his name on a pair of sneakers!"

"So in penance for his poor behavior, we here at PopWrap will not post one solitary story about Kanye West for the next 365 days. No blog links, no music premieres, no love life updates - nothing!"

West's critics include Swift's fellow nominees Pink, who posted on her Twitter account, "Kanye West is the biggest piece of s*** on earth," and Kelly Clarkson among many other celebrities.
