Are U guys watching the MTV VMAs?

The adorable Taylor Swift just won Best Female Video, beating out Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, and Beyonce to name a few.

But as the young Swift took the stage, she started to give her acceptance speech only to have Kanye West jump on stage and take her mic to proclaim that BEYONCE really had one of the best videos of all time!!

WTF!?!?!

How RUDE! Yet, very Kanye like.

The crowd then started to boo and Kanye stormed off stage and left poor Taylor speechless before she was escorted off stage.

And this all happened just a few minutes before Taylor was set to take the stage again and perform. Hope she doesn't let this outburst bother her.

Look for clips of the incident to popup on YouTube shortly.

What do U think of Kanye's outburst?

    I live in Chicago and even though the awards took place in another city, Kanye's antics have enevitably become Chicago's shame.

    The real reason why most in Chicago do not support him is because of egotistical shit like this. Kanye should grow the fuck up and realize that when he does something stupid like this, everyone around and associated with him ends up having to do damage control. In my honest opinion, both Beyonce and Taylor should have had their moments, but Beyonce showed class by allowing Taylor to continue on with what should have been an uninterupted acceptance speech. It's sad that even though Kanye interupted Taylor, he ended up stealing both of those women's moments.



  2. 1702

    KANYE WEST IS A DISGUSTING UNTALENTED PIECE OF SHIT. HIS MUSIC SUCKS. SOMEBODY NEEDS TO WALK UP TO HIM WHEN HE'S ON STAGE AND BLOW HIS RUDE, IGNORANT, UGLY, BASTARD PIECE OF FUCKING SHIT BRAINS OUT. THEY WOULD BE DOING THE WORLD A GREAT SERVICE. BEYONCE'S VIDEO SUCKED ANYWAY. ALL SHE DOES IS DANCE IN EVERY VIDEO. THERE'S NO STORY OR ANYTHING. IT'S PATHETIC. KANYE'S PATHETIC. HE HAS A FUCKING ELECTRONIC MACHINE DISTORT HIS VOICE AND SING FOR HIM BECAUSE HE SUCKS. HOW THE FUCK IS THAT TALENT? SERIOUSLY…..HE NEEDS TO GET THE FUCK OFF THE FACE OF THE PLANET. FUCKING JERK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  3. 1703

    Yes it was wromg of Kanye to do that, but seriously, Lady Gaga should have totally won!!!



  4. 1704

    Hey Kanye: MONEY CAN'T BUY CLASS!



  5. 1705

    ALLL RIGHT … CHECK THIS OUT MOTHA FUCKERS…..WHAT KANYE WEST DID WAS DEAD FUCKING WRONG….PERIOD….HAND DOWN…HE HAD NO RIGHT TO GO UP THERE & STEAL HER MOMENT, BUT DAMNNN MAN…GIVE HIM A FUCKING BREAK….YALL MAKING IT BIGGER THAN WHT IT NEEDS TO BE….TALKN BOUT THIS THT & THE THIRD ! LIKE ALLL YALL NEED TO POP THE FUCK DOWN…I LOVE KANYE WEST & TAYLOR SWIFT….THEIR MUSIC IS AMAZING ! ! ! LIKE YALL IS ACTING OUTTA CONTROL….SWHEE…HAD TO GET THT OUT THERE LMAO…SHOUT OUT TO MY BABY GAGA & PEREZ!



  6. 1706

    To say that Taylor has no talent, you belong in a mental institute, with Kanye. She has more fans than kanye and beyonce combined. I like beyonce but all "single ladies" is a bunch of ass shaking. She has better videos than that. And to be named video of the year is absurd. Should of went to lady gaga. But remember all the awards givin out were voted upon. So congrats to all the winners. Cause votes don't lie we have President with brains now.



  7. 1707

    Yall are playing out the word "Douche" Shut the fuck uppp



  8. 1708

    he's a complete knob

    he did that at the mtv europe awards when he didn't win

    thus me hating everything about the little prick



  9. 1709

    Concerning Kanye and his upstage towards Taylor swift winning her first vma award.
    We all understand that we live in a new era where racism is shut out and not regarded upon. But…obviously kanye is clearly upset that "his gurl" Beyonce is a woman of black decent and should have gotten an award. If it was "BVMA" sponsored by BMT it would have been a discusting shut down to Taylor and her white herritage.
    Kanye should be utterly disscusted with himself and embarassed. And..that was not a legit appology!!
    No offence to beyonce(LUV HER) or to anyone that reads this and says im racist..im not. BUT>>>>KANYE WEST IS A 2009 RACIST!!!!



  10. 1710

    I mean beyonce's video was gud but Taylor swift is gud to I reallly liked both so Idc who it went to



  11. 1711

    i hope he knows most of the US probably hates him a lot right now. and will probably go on for a week at least….
    dumbass should think a bit :P



  12. 1712

    Re: allisonpaige – he was…



  13. 1713

    Most tasteless thing I've ever seen. I felt so bad for Taylor. Beyonce is one classy lady for doing what she did! Ugh, Kanye needs to shut his mouth, no one cares.



  14. 1714

    I like Kanye's music, and i love Taylor's. What he did last night shows how much class and personality he has, it was absolutley disgusting, and un-called for, BOOO Kanye!!!!



  15. 1715

    i remember watching this and being like "whatthefriggg! did he actually just do that?" i can't believe him. he's a freaking asshole.



  16. 1716

    Man fuck Kanye west he's a fucken asshole and he can go stick a dick up his ass cause he aint nothen but a piece of shit that gets his fame off of everyone else's talents! Taylor swift's video was so much better than a piece of shit video that took 20 dollars and a trip to Walmart for some damn leotards. Kanye west can go to hell for doing that dumb shit and i hope he ruined what little of a talent career he does have!! haha fucken idiot



  17. 1717

    hes an a$$



  18. 1718

    asshole douche!



  19. 1719

    Bottom Line: Kanye West has just completely destroyed his career. He will always be known as a trashy disrepectful Douchebag. and he needs to accept the fact that Taylor Swift has made a name for herself in the Limelight. and maybe if he concentrated on his jibberis attepts to call rap music, instead of putting down successful artists be could become something worth listening to. Like Biggie Smalls perhaps :) but honestly wow…Kanye good job.



  20. 1720

    i left one thing out. yes. Kanye is a major bag of DOUCHE.. and his action was dispicable. But Beyonce handled the sit. as a classy artist and i find that extremely commedable. thats exactly why shes so sucessful.



  21. 1721

    Kanye - ur.a.d.bag. belidat.



  22. 1722

    What an ass of Kanye. At least Beyonce had enough class to give Taylor her moment. Still doesn't excuse Kanye's behavior.



  23. 1723

    Honestly I was quite shocked taylor won….not a fan at all, but what shocked me more was what kanye did……beyonce did have an amazing video and thats why she got all time best video. Still a fan of kanye but really kanye? that was totally uncalled for…just like the former president "doesn't care about black people" lmao….he really needs to think before he acts on a lot of the stupid shit he does.



  24. 1724

    Obviously fueled by booze. But career suicide!



  25. 1725

    "I'm known for running my mouth I will not be accountable for what comes out, uh I dunno, I might have said it I was kinda gone and light-head"

    Air Yeezy! lol



  26. 1726

    This is why I never like Kanye! He is nothin but a conceded bastard! He lived through what could have been a fatal accident and he lost his mother. And he is still an asshole! Someone should take away his fame then maybe his dumb ass will finally become humble! I love Taylor Swift! I will never listen to or buy any of Kanye's music again! and but the way Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) is a dumb song I dont know why she even made it Jay-Z did put a ring on it!



  27. 1727

    i want to kill him.
    that was SO rude and he's such a jerk.
    even though he apologzied doesn't make it any better.
    if he thinks that beyonce's song was better, then great. doesnt mean he has to share it with the world during TAYLOR's moment. he's such an asshole. :@



  28. 1728

    Tell me why kanye isn't trash. He's more like a steaming pile of shit, and thats being nice about it. I'm glad to say i loved breaking the cd's of him i use to have. He lost me as a fan. I will never listen to his music again, i suggest everyone to do this. Its not about race now. But he made a giant leap backwards though.



  29. 1729

    Are you kanye's twin. If you compare record sales and airplay. Taylor beats beyonce by a landslide. beyonce Best video of all time i think not, she just shook her ass in front of a white background. Her worst video to date compared to her other phenomal videos.



  30. 1730

    The guy is a self absorbed asshole. I don't think his doucheness could get any worse. I bet he proves me wrong though. You should be ashamed of yourself Kanye!

  31. Misa7 says – reply to this


    1731

    Shame on you Kanye!!!
    He is a moron!!



  32. 1732

    i hate 2 say this but i feel bad 4 her she is a nice person n she sing rly beautiful even i im not fan at her but kenye being a duchbag!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  33. 1733

    Thanks Kanye, for being a fucking dick.



  34. 1734

    You Taylor Swift doesn't deserve that award Kanye went hard but the truth is even harder oh yeah perez kill yourself you disgusting troll of a homo!!!!



  35. 1735

    what the hell ?!
    this was soo kanye though.
    i would have fucking yelled at
    him to give me back the mike.
    sure beyonce a l w a y s is amazing
    but she wins everything and she
    has enough money to buy the award
    no questions asked. let someone else
    have the spotlight. & beyonce was super
    sweet to give her speechtime to taylor.
    fuck you kanye. thats it for me buying yer shit.



  36. 1736

    I JUST READ DOUCH'S APOLOGY AND HONESTLY DONT CARE AND HOPE HE'S CAREER STARTS GOING DOWN HILL. GO SWIFT AND THANKS TO BEYONCE FOR GIVING HER, HER "MOMENT".



  37. 1737

    Kayne West is a fucking douche!!! Honestly I thought Beyonce's video (and song for that matter) was not anything special…shaking your ass in a leotard isn't comendable, so Kayne's stupid outburst wasn't even worth it. Poor Taylor! I would like to know what she said about of all of this… I really wish that people would would knock Kayne West down a few notches…you are not God's gift to the world you freaking asswipe and what is your talent anyway?? Lord knows it aint singing WHEWWW



  38. 1738

    Taylor Swift certainly didn't deserve it, but that's not to say it was Kanye's place to do what he did.
    We will all forget her name in years to come, but Kanye's probably done her a favour by making everyone 'feel sorry for her' …It wouldn't surprise me if it were a set up for publicity!



  39. 1739

    Personally, I wanted Katy Perry to win, but I still love Taylor Swift. She's so sweet and innocent, a cute little kitten. Fuckin' Kayne is a dumb fuck dick weed! I can't believe he would do that! So rude, I have not one ounce of respect for him now.



  40. 1740

    FUCK YOU ASSHOLE, you are dead to the world after what you did lastnight



  41. 1741

    that was the funniest thing i ever saw i love kanye but that was not ness… he should have been classy and kept his thoughts to himself i was thinking the same thing he said that night but still learn how to keep ur thoughts to urself negative ones included



  42. 1742

    WELL KANYE YOUR A DOUCHE! Hope you fix that fucking maze up on your head would want your tranny prositute stripper girlfriend to get lost up there..Oh yeah and next time tell your girlfriend to not go fucking shat in a cup and make some girl eat it :O oh oppsie I shouldnt have said that since she obviously didnt make a porno….WITH HER BALD HEAD..just watch out if it gets to sunny she might shine her baldy head in your way and you might die



  43. 1743

    Dick Face!!!



  44. 1744

    As far as I am concerned, what Kanye West did was striclty Racist motivated. I just watched and compared the two videos! Though I am not a teen and found Taylor Swifts video to be "kiddy" like, I will admit, it went along with the song (in story format). As for Beyonce's video??? It was quite simply put, a bunch of butt shaking and odd dancing and facial gestures. From an artistic standpoint, it was worthless. Coming from Kanye's view of it…it was excellent if your motives are for pleasuring yourself to erotic dancing. What Kanye did was extremely rude and if not moivated by a race issue, makes me wonder what he was hepped up on. I dont accept his apology and dont think anyone else should. He is only apologizing as a way of doing damage control for himself. I think Jay-Z should give him a good smack in the ear and tell him to stop trying to hit on his woman, cause as far as I'm concerned, that played a part in his behaviour!



  45. 1745

    I hope you enjoyed yourself asshole, chances are, this'll end your career. Like I said, dont bother apologizing. Tough guyz dont do stuff like that to little girls. Pick on someone your own size, which I hope you have to do from now on when you're fighting for your next meal. I hope you wind up having to claim bankruptcy over this. LOL! teach you some manners and when to keep your mouth shut. YOU AINT ON TOP O" THE WORLD anymore!



  46. 1746

    1st.. I AM COMPLETELY AGAINST WHAT KANYE DID. TACKY!
    .
    .
    But I have to say, Isn't this what he always does? Just like I expect Lady Gaga to wear something 5 (or more) years ahead of our time, his ego is part of his what makes him a star!
    .
    .
    What he failed to realize, in my opinion, is that this was the VMAs. Although most of the artists are over 20, I'm sure most of the voters were the same voters from the Teen Choice Awards. I don't think that he is racist because he collaborates with a lot of non-black people. I think he might have Adult ADHD mixed with a bad case of "the world revolves around me.. or people I like". That's why he doesn't see how country-pop artists can win.
    .
    .
    (I know this is not PC right now) I watched all of these videos again and I really like Taylor's song, but the video is CHEESY!! She'll be 20 soon and she's still making high school videos… please. I'm sure that if he didn't do that last night, the story would've been "How did Taylor Swift beat Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Pink?!" Kelly's song is great too, but the video could have been better.



  47. 1747

    Actually one more comment about Kanye's interuption. What he did is something you would expect to see during a WWE wrestling match, you know, where the classless hood interupts the heroes speech and comes out to be a complete jerk and everyone boos them? Truly a jerk at his best.



  48. 1748

    Fuck Kanye! I used to listen to his music but not anymore! What a fucking dickhead!!



  49. 1749

    ew. screw him.



  50. 1750

    To all those people saying that his career is over, I doubt it. They don't have the same fans. Unfortunately, I think this will help him with his target audience and the "poor-girl" thing can only go so far past 19.
    .
    .
    Note: I'm not taking his side.. I'm just being realistic.



  51. 1751

    i can not believe that!!! kanye just thinks hes to good but that was low even for him!! wat kind of artist is he? he should not be an entertainer if he can not be professional, i bet no one took his spotlight, thats just not right!!!! he is such a jerky ass hole!!!!



  52. 1752

    Re: wannafuq1211 – STFU dumbass and learn how to read and write…..ghetto…..ghetto……just like that ugly dumbass on stage.



  53. 1753

    OMG I FREAKN LOVE KANYE WEST EVEN MORE NOW. THAT WAS SOOO DOWN I LOVED IT. FIRST OF ALL I CANT EVEN BELIEVE TAYLOR SWIFT WAS EVEN NOMINATED HER VIDEO AND HER ARE BLAND BORING AND PREDICTABLE. TOTALLY DONE BEFORE. KANYE WAS JUST BEING KANYE AND SPEAKING HIS MIND BIF FREAKN DEAL. IT WOULDNT HAVE HAPPEND IF TAYLOR SWIFT DIDNT SUCK. DONT EVEN TRIP KANYE YOUR STILL WAY TOO FLY.



  54. 1754

    Re: The Stratos – You are so ignorant The Stratos…..you belong with Ya Boy………ghetto……ghetto……..ghetto. Unprofessional and trashy. Grow up bitch.



  55. 1755

    I was a big fan of Kanye until last night. I will never buy another Kanye song again. Despicable behavior and I hope he gets whats coming to him … What afukin asshole …

  56. Reebz says – reply to this


    1756

    AFTER SEEEING THAT SHIT I FUCKING HATE HIM 10 TIMES FUCKING MORE! KANYE YOUR A FUCKING BASTARD! I HATE YOU SOOO MUCH! YOU DESERVE TO HANG THE SHIT BEAT OUTTA YOUR UGLY FUCKING CHIPMUNK FACE! I WANNA FUCKING HIT YOU WITH A HAMMER TILL YOUR OUT AND FEED YOU TO ALL YOUR FUCKING FAMILY MEMBERS! YOUR A FUCKING TOOL. THATS HER TIME NOT YOUR SO BACK THE FUCKING UP YOU STUPID COWARD MUTHERFUCKER! I WISH I COULD SEE YOU IN PERSON AND SPIT ON YOUR FACE!



  57. 1757

    STOP HATING ON KANYE ALREADY!!! HES WAY TOO DOPE AND YOUR ALL JUST MAD CUZ YOU KNOW TAYLOR SWIFT SUX HARDCORE. SHES A LAME HICK WHO LOOKS LIKE A MOUSE AND IS MORE BORING THAN WATCHING PAINT DRY. OKAY KANYES OBXNIOUS CONCIEDED AND FULL OF HIMSELF BUT HELLLLOOOO HE CAN BE. HES ONE OF THE BEST MCS IN THE GAME RIGHT AND JUST BECAUSE HE KNOW IT DOESNT MEAN YOU GUYS HAVE TO HATE HIM. OH ONE MORE THING TAYLOR SWIFT SHOULDNT EVEN BE ALLOWED ON MTV CUZ ITS WASTED SPACE AND HER TWO MINUTE SONG MEANS I HAVE TO WATCH SOMEHITNG ELSE FOR 2 MINUTES



  58. 1758

    This is why he will not be timeless. John Lennon, Rod Stewart, Mick Jagger and all those that stay with us through the years would welcome and enjoy all venues of music and would never jump the stage while a young and new talent is enjoying the feeling of success that they have felt. In time his die-hard fans will move on with him, but he has lost the respect of many of the rest of us. Respect is earned. Actions are louder than words. Now he needs to DO something to make it right.



  59. 1759

    Re: HollywoodTown – West also tried to explain his reasons for interrupting Swift. He wrote: "Everybody wanna boooo me but I'm a fan of real pop culture!!! … I gave my awards to OutKast when they deserved it over me … that's what it is." | Beyonce won the Video of the Year award, so it obviousely didnt suck.



  60. 1760

    his dead mother must be spinning in her grave. Kanye West is a dick head



  61. 1761

    For all the people who are dissing Beyonce; she gave up her acceptance speech for Taylor and invited her onstage to finish it. She's not responsible for his actions.

    Or she's just a more canny at PR than him.



  62. 1762

    after watching what this asshole did i got so mad , it must have felt for taylor like she was getting mugged, little white girl in new york city and here comes this black man steeling her shit. mtv really needs to do somthing about what Kanye did



  63. 1763

    FUCK KANYE WEST. WHO THE FUCK D0ES HE THINK HE IS HIS COCKYNESS NEEDS TO GO..
    HE LOOKS LIKE A FUCKIN Squirrel !

    I CANT STAND HIM .. NEVER DID LIKE HIS ANNOYING MUSIC .

    && HE NEEDS TO GET OF JAY Z DiCK!!!!



  64. 1764

    Re: MizzTonyaBaby – u are so ghetto MizzTonyaBaby…..just
    like dumbass Kayne. PLEASE go back to school and learn how to read and write. Soooooooo pathetic.



  65. 1765

    Re: Ilikekanye – You are a dumbass…….just LIKEKANYE……lol



  66. 1766

    Well Love or Hate Kayne, He made Taylor Swift more famous( I never heard of her). Was he wrong? Damn skippy he was. Did he try to diss or belittle the young lady? Nope, he was drunk (Did you notice the big bottle of Courvoisier he consumed?). He will be back at the next VMAs to give you folks something to talk about and you never know Kayne and Taylor collaborate on a project together. I say dont trust none of them, the celebs or media.



  67. 1767

    Okay I'm thing one of two things….1) Kayne hated to see a little white country singer win over what he considers the better choice or…2) Does anyone think that either there might be something between Beyonce and Kayne or at least maybe he's sick in the head and thinks beyonce and him have something going on when in fact there is nothing?



  68. 1768

    kanye is a worthless pathetic peice of shit,he is just pissed off that his life sucks and nobody likes his conceited ass.to.to go out and interrupt taylor is a shitty thing to do,he just wants to be seen since everyone is forgetting about him..you are a sorry person to steal somebodys elses moment of glory.

    like kelly clarkson said. KANYE IS A PATHETIC HUMAN BEING…

    he is a worhless peice of shit who needs his ass beat so he will learn some manners and have some respect for people..

  69. cola says – reply to this


    1769

    BEYONCE IS LOW DOWN BUT NEVER KNEW SHE WAS THIS LOW. THIS GENEROSITY STUNT WAS STAGED AND I BELIEVE PLANNED DELIBERATELY IN ORDER TO TAKE ATTENTION AWAY FROM MICHAELS TRIBUTE. LOW. LOW DOWN, LOW CLASS AND SO BEYONCE. SHE'S TACKY, SAD AND JUST ALL AROUND GHETTO TRASH.



  70. 1770

    Who cares? But, I agree that, yea, it was fucked up that Kanye stole Taylor's moment. But fuck it, shit happens, that's life. Maybe it'll make her a lil tougher. Quit bein' a bunch of bitches and get over it…Now, let me ask this, would it have been a big fuckin' deal if it happened to somebody like Eminem? Hell no, so grow sum balls and deal…



  71. 1771

    i think that was uncalled for kanye west thinks he is all high and mighty and better than everyone else he really hurt poor taylor she is my favorite celebrity she looked like she was gonna cry and he doesnt even know her:( i hate him >:(



  72. 1772

    He probably thought it was a racist thing. Taylor's video rocks and relates to a lot of people.
    I love beyonce's video too but not everyone can win!



  73. 1773

    it was uncalled for. true beyonce has one of the best videos of all time but come on KANYE she got VIDEO of the YEAR! TAYLORS video just shows that fans love what she does! Kanye- you truly did ruin a GREAT and HISTORICAL VMA moment…really take that well deserved time off to just reanalyze yourself.



  74. 1774

    not only was he a jerk for hopping up on stage but when the crowd/fans started booing he flipped them off while walking off stage. He really needs a wake up call. The fans make you famous not the other way around. You should never disrespect your fans.He is an idiot and he might be a great artist but it'll take some smooth publicist to get his ass out of this one. I could totally see them doing a duet at the next vma's or a song together to prove that they are kosher. But yeah, he is a jerk.



  75. 1775

    Re: sissy gail

    WOW! did Kanye really flip off the fans? WOW!



  76. 1776

    It's one thing to be passionate about something. It's another thing to be disrespectful. There is an appropriate venue for things like that and rushing the stage, disrespecting another musician, isn't it.
    Does he really not think that things like that will negatively impact his career?? It's only a matter of time.



  77. 1777

    So he embarasses Taylor Swift by saying beyonce had one of the best video's of all time, and She ended up winning best overall video anyways.. way to embarrass not only taylor but Yourself for nothing.. he's probly lost so many fans.. say hello to the next Chris brown. or should i say goodbye.
