Kanye West ruins Taylor Swift’s moment at VMA
Who is up for stealing someone else’s thunder? Apparently, Kanye West is. The date was September 13, 2009, and the occasion was MTV Marquee Awards. At this time, Taylor Swift was delivering her acceptance speech for winning the best female video award for You Belong With Me. West thought the award was not meant for Swift but for an equally excellent singer and his friend, Beyoncé.
The rapper storms the stage and makes his opinion known when he blurted that “Yo Taylor, I’m really happy for you,” interrupting her. “I’mma let you finish, but Beyoncé has one of the best videos of all time!” Swift was a bit stunned, but we credit her for remaining calm despite the apparent confusion, embarrassment, and shock on her face. When the camera panned onto Beyoncé, she also appeared shocked and clearly disapproved of West’s action. In the aftermath, the rapper declined to comment.
