The outspoken rapper Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift‘s acceptance speech for Best Female Video at MTV’s 2009 Video Music Awards, declaring Beyonce‘s music video should have won the moon-man.
“Beyonce had the best video,” he said, taking the microphone from Swift.
Swift, looking taken aback, left the stage following West‘s outburst.
I think Kanye really over-stepped his boundaries as an artist. What he did was not cool one bit. It was rude and very unacceptable. I feel that as an artist at his magnitude of stardom, should have had more respect for Taylor Swift and given her that chance to receive her award for a work well done.
I’m sure that if that if someone who have interrupted his acceptance speech and said that someone else deserved his award more than himself, he would not have been to thrilled.
According to sources, Kanye and Amber Rose were escorted out of the VMA‘s.
Since the incident, Kanye has than posted an apology on his blog by stating the following…
“What are some of your thoughts about what happened at the VMA’s?”
