Everyone thought the biggest thing to come out of Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards would be the new Twilight trailer. Instead, the Net is overloaded with massive buzz over the nasty insult given by Kanye West to Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech for Best Female Video.
As poor Taylor Swift started to speak after receiving the award for Best Female Video at the VMAs on Sunday, Kayne West rudely jumped on stage and grabbed her mic. Shouting to the audience, Kanye West dissed Swift by yelling out: “Taylor, I’m really happy for you, and I’m gonna let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time.”
Although West later apologized, even penning an all caps apology post on his blog – “I’M SOOOOO SORRY TO TAYLOR SWIFT AND HER FANS AND HER MOM” – no apology is enough for his shockingly disgusting behavior. Quick a few celebrity responders to West’s outburst seem to agree. Even President Barack Obama couldn’t resist commenting on the debacle.
If you haven’t seen this video yet – well, where the hell have you been? But if you are just returning from Tibet or something and still haven’t seen it, we post it here for your viewing pleasure.
