Kanye West has officially lost it! While at the 2009 MTV VMA's Kanye rudely interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for 'Best Female Video' by grabbing the mic from her and acknowledging Beyonce instead.
Beyonce was up against Taylor and lost, which clearly angered Kanye.
Kanye grabbed the mic from Taylor and said, "Yo Taylor, I'm really happy for you , I'm going to let you finish but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time...one of the best of all time!"
The audience then booed him until MTV cut to a clip. Unbelievable! You would think a 32-year-old man would know better than to insult a 19 year-old girl, but Kanye clearly doesn't.
According to MTV.com, once cameras cut away from the action, West flipped off the crowd and returned to his seat.
I really don't give a rats ass about hollywood or Kanye West or Taylor Swift but this just goes to show how lil respect people have for each other in the world these days - even on a world stage where these people rely on 'respect' from fans to keep their sales up and their tickets sold (especially Kanye - who has spewed crap about wanting to be a mentor to young african americans and all youth alike) this dude has the balls / lack of respect / lack of whatever you wanna call it, to pull that shit - even Beyonce looks shocked in the video.
I've only read bits and pieces about this and there's about 10 people on my FaceBook with their status' sayin different things - I just wanted to see what the reaction is elsewhere. There are people who are calling for boycotts of Kanye's merchandise/concerts/everything and and over all general shock of him pullin this stint. What do you think?
