West Ruins Swift's Big Night At The Vmas With Beyonce Protest

KANYE WEST was up to his old tricks at the MTV Video Music Awards in New York on Sunday night (13Sep09) when he stormed the stage to protest the night's first honour.
The rapper interrupted Best Female Video award winner Taylor Swift as she was making her acceptance speech to proclaim Beyonce's Single Ladies was "the best video".
The outspoken star grabbed the microphone form a shocked Swift and declared, "Taylor, I'm really happy for you, I'm gonna let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time."
His protest was greeted by jeers and boos from the Radio City Music Hall crowd as a stunned Beyonce looked on from the audience and a speechless Swift held back tears as fans started chanting her name.

Too bad Kanye is such and Ass and it has nothing to do with race. Close your eyes and in the dark the act is still rude. So when did rude and being an ass become okay? He is mean and Taylor is just a kid. What a shinning example Kanye is for Americans I am sure the VMAS were telecast in many countries... what an Ass. I used to like him but now I have no respect for him.... he is at the level of Child abuse with what he did to this kid....

West looked to me like he was drinking, this doesn't excuse his terrible behavior which I'm sure his mother would be turning in her grave if she heard him. Whatever happened to good sportsmanship? Obviously, he has no tools in this area. Taylor didn't deserve such unkindness.

Kanye West was and is nothing more than a low life thug from the street. His behavior while appalling is not surprising. After all a little success and money never breeds class or common sense. For what ever reason this punk feels he is owed and cries for attention. He is a LOSER.

What Kanye did to Taylor was unexcusable. He is nothing more than a loose cannon, a kid that wants things done his way. Keep apologizing, because there is not enough that he can do to make up for his actions
