Kanye West slams Taylor Swift after she wins the MTV Award for Best Female Video

Kanye West can be such an twit. Here's an excerpt from People.com about what happened tonight:

In true VMA form, the MTV awards show did not stick to the script. The first winner of the night, Taylor Swift for best female video, was victim to this when she was rudely and quickly interrupted by Kanye West, who cut off her acceptance speech. He stole the microphone to announce that fellow nominee Beyoncé had "one of the greatest videos of all time," in "Single Ladies."

"I was standing on stage and I was really excited because I'd just won the award and then I was really excited because Kanye West was on stage," Swift recalled after the show. "And then I wasn't excited anymore after that." For her part, Beyoncé appeared shocked by the outburst and the crowd booed the rapper. Off-camera, when West returned to his seat, audience members gave a still-stunned Swift (who was ushered off the stage before finishing her speech) a standing ovation.

"I don't want to start anything," Swift said after the show when asked about hard feelings. "I had a great day tonight. I've been sent so many text messages and everyone's been really nice. I've had a really, really fun night." (People.com)


Beyoncé has had so much success, first as a member of Destiny's Child and since then, as a solo act. Taylor Swift is the new kid on the block - it's her time. Kanye ruined the moment for her. Later in the evening, Beyoncé showed that she's a class act:

Swift later got a speech do-over, courtesy of Beyonce, who won video of the yearfor "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)." Beyonce recalled that she won her first VMA at age 17, as a member of Destiny's Child. "I remember how excited I was," she said. "I'd like Taylor to come out and have her moment." A smiling but nervous Swift then said, "Can we try this again?" before going on to thank everyone she would have thanked had West not interrupted her.


Kanye West issued this lame-ass apology on his blog:

“I’M SOOOOO SORRY TO TAYLOR SWIFT AND HER FANS AND HER MOM. I SPOKE TO HER MOTHER RIGHT AFTER AND SHE SAID THE SAME THING MY MOTHER WOULD’VE SAID. SHE IS VERY TALENTED! I LIKE THE LYRICS ABOUT BEING A CHEERLEADER AND SHE’S IN THE BLEACHERS! ……..
