September 13, 2009

By now you have probably heard about the whole Taylor Swift, Kanye West moment tonight at the VMA’s. This one definitely was not staged. The video below proves it.

I am incredibly appalled by what happened at the VMA Awards this evening. Just when you think you’ve seen it all…

Taylor Swift won the Best Female Video award this evening (for You Belong With Me), nominated amongst Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson, Katy Perry and Beyonce. The look of shock on Swift’s face when she was announced the winner was priceless and truly genuine. She came on stage, accepted the award, and thanked everyone.

“I sing country music, so thank you so much for giving me a chance to win a VMA.”

Enter Kanye West. He rushes the stage, takes the microphone from Taylor and says:

“Yo, Taylor, I’m really happy for you, I’ll let you finish, but Beyoncé has one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!”

Seriously. Who does he think he is? The camera cuts to Beyonce, who looked just as shocked as anyone when West made his revelation to the crowd. The audience was none too happy with West, as his outburst was met with several boos. He handed the mic back to Taylor and she was visibly shaken and clearly did not know what to say, but the crowd rallied and gave her a standing ovation. At this point her allotted time on stage had run out and we next were shown a video of Tracy Morgan and Eminem.

And just how did Swift take in all that happened tonight? When she saw West take the stage, she reportedly was “really excited”, then after his infamous little tirade, she “wasn’t so excited anymore after that.” She refused to bash the rapper for what he did. She is such a class act, and only 19 years old to boot.

Later in the show, Beyonce won Video of the Year for Single Ladies and invited Swift up to the stage to finish her acceptance speech after she was so rudely interrupted by West. Major kudos to Beyonce.

So let’s open this up for discussion, folks. What do you think about the whole Taylor Swift, Kanye West VMA incident? Leave me a comment! You can see some photos of the two below.

    Kanye is a idiot! That just goes to show u how stupid people will act when they get fame and money. He should have just kept the wires in his mouth and that maybe that would have kept him from saying anything at all!

    That’s Kanye his jerk #1. But the vma should not allowed other people on the stage, if it is not part of the act. Really when Kanye comes on the stage. Be warned he is really lose jerk at times. Okay about all the time. I wonder what Jay-z feels about it.
