Kanye West Interrupts Taylor Swift VMA Acceptance Speech To Defend Beyonce

In case you needed further confirmation that Kanye West is a total asshat, feast your eyes on Exhibit A: The outspoken rapper interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech for Best Female Video at MTV’s 2009 Video Music Awards to declare that Beyonce’s popular “Single Ladies” music video should have received the award instead.


“Beyonce had the best video,” he said, snatching the microphone from Swift.

A speechless Taylor, visibly shaken, left the stage following the outburst.

MTV should have blackballed him after he severed a blood vessel when Britney Spears was invited to open the VMAs in Las Vegas back in 2007.
