Oh Kanye! In a bold move, typical of the musician, Kanye West rushed the stage at the Video Music Awards and grabbed the microphone from Taylor Swift as she was giving her acceptance speech for Best Female Video. Kayne took over the stage to give props to Beyonce’s viral hit “Single Ladies,” describing it as one of the best videos of all time and implying that it should have won. The audience booed him for stealing Taylor’s glory as both Beyonce and Taylor looked on in shock at Kayne’s actions. Kanye was asked to leave.
Eventually everything turned out alright- Beyonce’s Single Ladies did win the top prize of Video of the Year and the ever gracious Beyonce shared the moment on stage with Taylor Swift who finally got to finish her speech.
Kanye quickly apologized in person to Swift and also on his blog, IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS:
“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!”
Did Kanye’s outburst overshadow Janet Jackson’s creepy vocal modulations designed to make her sound like her late brother? Should she have added a wardrobe malfunction to spice things up?
