KANYE WEST INTERRUPTS TAYLOR SWIFT’S ACCEPTANCE SPEECH AT THE 2009 VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS

Kanye West has clearly reached that stage where he believes he can do and say as he pleases without facing some serious repercussions afterwards.

But hopefully this is all about to change…….

Via Rolling Stone

Leave it to Kanye West to produce one of the most infamous moments in VMAs history before the 2009 show was even an hour old. It happened after Taylor Swift’s victory in the Best Female Video category for “You Belong With Me,” which beat out Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It).” Just moments after Swift accepted the Moon Man and began her acceptance speech, West stormed the stage, taking the microphone from Swift to announce Beyoncé deserved the award.

 “Thank you so much!” Swift began. “I always dreamed about what it would be like to maybe win one of these some day, but I never actually thought it would have happened. I sing country music so thank you so much for giving me a chance to win a VMA award.”

Before she could continue, West broke in. “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!” Kanye shouted to a mortified Swift and the speechless audience. And as quickly as he ran onstage — MTV cut away to show Pink applauding Taylor, and when they flashed back to Swift, West already had the mic in his hand — he was off, leaving a shocked Swift in his wake.

Everyone at the Radio City Music Hall looked stunned, as the cameras captured an astonished and horrified Beyoncé still in her seat. Soon after, the audience gave a standing ovation in support of Swift. To add insult to injury, after Kanye handed the microphone back to Swift, her time was up, and MTV cut to a video featuring Tracy Morgan and Eminem.

According to sources at the VMAs, Swift was seen hysterically crying backstage after Kanye’s outburst, making it convenient that her performance of “You Belong to Me,” which immediately followed the acceptance speech, was prerecorded. Wale, who is serving as MC for the house band, told the crowd, “You can’t fault a man for speaking his mind,” which was promptly met by boos from the Radio City Music Hall crowd. Continue Reading…..

What did Taylor Swift do to deserve that level of DISRESPECT?

If it had been me I would have smacked Kanye across the face with my Moon Man and left that fool ‘spittin through the wire’ again!

No amount of reconstructive surgery would be able to save his shattered jaw.  

And as for rapper Wale’s comment “You can’t fault a man for speaking his mind”, you’re dumber then you look Wale! There is a time and a place for everything! Running on stage, rudely interrupting an acceptance speech and embarrassing the winner (an 18 year old incapable of defending herself) was neither the time or place to express those sorts of views.

Defend foolishness on your own time you arse kissing groupie!

Kanye later posted this pathetic apology on his blog (which has since been removed).

“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! …………………… i’m in the wrong for going on stage and taking away from her moment!……………. beyonce’s video was the best of this decade! I’m sorry to my fans if I let you guys down! I’m sorry to my friends at mtv. I will apologize to taylor 2mrw. welcome to the real world! everybody wanna booooo me but i’m a fan of real pop culture! No disrespect but we watchin’ the show at the crib right now cause … well you know! i’m still happy for taylor! Boooyaaawwww! you are very very talented! I gave my awards to outkast when they deserved it over me… that’s what it is!! i’m not crazy yall, i’m just real. Sorry for that! I really feel bad for taylor and i’m sincerely sorry! Much respect!!”

Can somebody please bring me a pin. This fool’s ego needs deflating ASAP!

*I will post video footage and pictures from last night’s event later on in the day*

  1. He thinks he IS actually the king of pop!!!! I dont no whether to gasp or laugh!!! Beyonce did gracefully give her ‘her moment’ went she collected best something or the other for Single Ladies – he only apologised because the fans booed everytime his name was mentioned on stage! Backfired on the dude diva!

  2. He is an eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeediat!!! Can you imagine such nonsense. Tell you what if he was in nigeria…best believe he will be STONED!! chai!! looool!!! If I was his girlfriend, best believe HIS ASS IS GOOOOONE!!! Don’t care who u are or how much money you got, respect, integrity & manners do not comply with him!!!!!!

    Poor girl…I feel so sorry for her. Can’t imagine what her parent must have thought……errrr shotguns at the ready?? lol!! There is a time and a place for such things…best believe he’ll get snubbed from award ceremonies after this…or will he???

  3. The way he and his handbag of a girl dressed was a disgrace. This is why people need an education no matter what amount of talent you have at whatever age.

    Somebody really needs to bring that man down one way or another. He himself used to cry and throw tantrums when he did not recieve an award, and has the cheek to spoil her moment.

    You have talent but act like an ‘a hole’, whatever kanye, whatever. She’s only 19 for heaven’s sakes and won an award.

  4. I still don’t get the fascination with the Single Ladies video. It was boring as hell. The only interesting bit was the wall bit, that defied gravity for a split second. Please, don’t give me the “you’re missing the concept” argument.

  5. if only security jumped on stage and tassered him on the mic. He obviously cant control his emotions in these events, maybe a security gaurd next to him with a tasser is just what the doctor ordered that would be so funny to watch.

    Ps
    @adaobe
    i did really like beyonce video though, good dance routine.

  6. A fan of real pop culture? Rihanna cannot sing or dance. Hulloo, then jay z 2 had the nerve to come up with his death to auto tune concept. Real pop culture with a bottle of alcohol in one hand(rolls eyes), the real pop princesses and kings are the older generation and what’s left of them.

  7. Ri Ri – sorry – can not sing, she’s an entertainer (by an means ness’) almost everything she does is one step closer to selling her soul… she looks awkward and manufactured in every photo and im tired of her!!

    Kanye Kanye kanye…well what can one say – deluded, mellow dramatic man – i find it insulting this fool can charge full price for his album and ticket prices with 50% of his shit digitally enhance vocoder crap, 25% samples and 25 % wutless talent!

    Jay Z got so many lawyers and ‘aasociates’ bule mo fo’ im not saying nuthin! But Beyoonce single ladies video was tight!! Even if her dancers were not in perfect time ; P

  8. I’m sorry, but Kanye was right.

    “Single Ladies” was an AWESOME video w/its sexy simplicity.

    However, he was an absolute asshole for interrupting Swift.

    Completely uncalled for, and soooooooooo low class!!!!

  9. I am yet to see real talent being awarded or promoted. They use their own talentless black pple 4 making money. And have the guts to complain abt others. Whatever kanye.

  10. He is a two faced twat. Swift and beyonce do different genres. You will not find dance moves in her videos. Him and jamie fox are pathetic black men picking on young girls.

  11. The ISSUE IS not whether Kanye is right, I’m sure the majority thought the same….. I didn’t even know who Swift was until today…

    The issue is WHO THE F–K DOES KANYE THIN HE IS !!!
