Taylor Swift Treated Rudely By Kanye West At VMA 2009
The 1st winner of the VMA awards, Taylor Swift for best female video recording, was a victim as she was impolitely and rapidly disrupted by Kanye West, who broke off her award's speech. He grabbed the microphone from her to proclaim that associate candidate Beyoncé had "among the greatest video recordings ever," in "Single Ladies." "Taylor states she was up on the stage and she was truly emotional since she merely acquired the honor and so she was genuinely excited since Kanye West got on stage," Taylor remembered afterwards. "She was not excited any longer after that." For her part, Beyoncé seemed aghast by the tumultuous disturbance and the crowd hissed the rapper. Off-camera, once West went back to his place, the audience dedicated a still-stunned Swift a supporting ovation. Afterward, West, who was snapped indulging what appeared like booze on the red-carpet, wasn't in his place at Radio City Music Hall. A security guard states the rapper departed the locale and wouldn't be permitted to return inside.
