Taylor Swift Speaks Out!

| Filed under: MTVKanye WestTaylor Swift

ap-knayetay1.jpg

Pay attention, Kanye West! This is how a class act handles themselves.

Taylor Swift is talking about the rude and bizarre incident last night involving Kanye West and all the while remains as humble and as professional as ever.

When asked about the moments on stage, she replied:

"Well, I was standing on stage because I was really excited because I had just won the award. And then I was really excited because Kanye West was on stage. And then I wasn't so excited anymore after that."

She needn't fret much though, since only minutes after the stunt occurred, celebs in every direction began to show their support for her:

"I've been getting so many text messages and everybody's been really nice. So I've had a really, really fun night. It's been interesting definitely. It's definitely been an interesting night."

But while her friends and colleagues share a support for her and a distaste of Kanye, she herself harbors no ill-will:

"I don't know him, and I've never met him, so… I don't want to start anything because I had a great night tonight."

And that's how you keep things classy! Hope you're taking notes, Kanye!

    Taylor swift is a gorgeous, amazing artist, and a great role model.

    Kanye however, needs to get over himself and learn a thing or two from her.

  8. 8

    I wonder if Kuntye would've gotten up on stage if a young, black woman had just won the award? I seriously doubt it.



  9. 9

    Beyone is the true class act tonight….she is #1 on iTunes. Taylor is so genuine….I can't wait to hear what the country community has to say about this…Tim McGraw & Miranda Lambert are going to kick some ass and raise hell!

    Nice to see a young celebrity with class and talent. So rare…



  18. 18

    Kanye West is a thug, a phoney and a bully. He probably beats women and animals too! Wouldn't suprise me at all.
    Enough of these fucking thug asshole egomaniacs being allowed to make money with their shitty-ass over produced "music" already.
    GO AWAY AND NEVER COME BACK!!!

    I love Ms. Taylor Swift and I love Ms. Beyonce for being the epitome of class and giving Taylor her moment!



  20. 20

    Kanye is an asshole. He showed his true colors last night. I wish someone would have kicked his ass for what he did - RACIST PIG!!!! I'm sure his mother is so proud of this piece of shit.



  21. 21

    i'm baaaack



  22. 22

    kanye west needs to be put down like a horse with a bad leg.. what an ass, and continues to top himself..



  23. 23

    he stole her moment. she can never get that back. her 1st national award. its bigger than stealing virginity. I rename him the "spot light rapist"



  24. 24

    and that is why people from all age groups and fans of all different genres love Taylor Swift…..



  25. 25

    Kanye West is a dweeb! What an ass! Amazing for him think that the public will let this just blow over! Kanye, you and your Fugly girlfriend are LAME and this childish act is like an outburst from a 3 year old! Seriously, grow up!



  26. 26

    He's an ass. She deserved to win



  27. 27

    I am sure that she will have a long succesful career…and be a big crossover artist. Kanye….not so much. He's just about done.



  28. 28

    kanye west is a douche gargler, what a waste of human flesh he is….his lame career is OVER



  29. 29

    we love you!!!



  30. 30

    THIS is a true professional Kanye West!!!!!! Maybe you can learn some manners from a teenager….such a pity, a grown man like yourself



  31. 31

    I luv her

  32. 32

    did he actually think this was going to go over well? you truely have to be the world's biggest dumbass to think this is going to somehow benefit you. kanye west can suck a moneysack. douchebag.



  33. 33

    KAYNE is the biggest douche!
    Taylor is quite the beautiful lady and she has so much class.
    She didn't deserve this! But I'm glad she took it with a grain of salt.
    KAYNE,your "career" is OVER!



  34. 34

    IM NOT A FAN BUT SHES DEFIENTLY GREAT!



  35. 35

    yo momma's so vain…. seriously though, he's a racist jackass, i don't care what color he is, he could be purple, he's still a racist and he has no business doing this even though taylor swift kind of blows if you ask me



  36. 36

    I'm loving your new attitude, Perez. ;)

    And yes, she's being so graceful about all of this controversy, unlike Kanye. They're saying he apologized afterwards? No amount of apology is going to make this OK. I can't wait to see him in that Jay Leno interview tonight.



  37. 37

    Oh dear god that was just pathetic of Kanye. He should just go fuck Beyonce and get it the fuck over it! Stupid bastard…
    ps Im not even that into Taylor's music, but she has class and is deserving of any award she gets!



  38. 38

    Kanye Looks like the biggest douche on Earth in this photo. Just loook at the way he stands- Complete and utter TOOL BAG.



  39. 39

    Re: blacksmith – DUDE!!! shut up!!! you are talking about this since friday STOP!!!! you are a pain in the butt…



  40. 40

    Shame on you Kanye…that was terrible.
    I am a Kanye fan and honestly I am not big on TS but come on…could he more of an asshole?
    There is no apology, let alone a half ass one like the one he issued, that can make this right. The best he can do is to keep his mouth shut.
    And Beyonce, we are all fans…
    She is adorable and she was great last night!!!!



  41. 41

    I'm Not Fan Of Taylor Swift (I LIke A Few Songs Tho.) And I Felt So Bad For Her….



  42. 42

    Amen!

    It doesn't matter if Kanye didn't agree with who won, Kanye is NOT God and should learn to respect others just the way he's always crying for people to respect him.

    Taylor deserved her moment, she's worked hard for it, like she said, a country girl in the world of pop and hip hop makes it -you can't disregard her numbers of sold albums. Period.

    I'm so glad to see she's ok, and that Beyonce stepped up to the plate and like the classy woman she is, showed everyone how to repair what Kanye had damaged.

    Well done Kanye, you wanted the world to know you think Beyonce deserves respect? Too bad you pissed on both her and Taylor for ruining BOTH their moments and for forcing Beyonce having clean upp your mess.. acting like a drunk two-year-old!

    Much love to both ladies!



  43. 43

    Again, this A hole is pissed that things didnt go his way. He is a Douche and in a big way. He is crying crying like a baby for attention. Sounds to me like he needs some therapy.



  44. 44

    KANYE WEST HATES WHITE PEOPLE. Sound familiar? Ring true? This little man should really man up and either quit getting high or learn how to handle it. I'm not a great Beyonce fan, but props to her for trying to bring a bit of dignity to this young girls moment in the spotlight by giving up her own. Tupac and Biggie would probably not have done that. Too bad they can't trade places. I would like to see him bleed. His mama should have smacked his mouth a few times, and taught him some human civility before she died. KANYE WEST HATES WHITE PEOPLE. He's a racist, worthless drunk.



  45. 45

    HE'S A FUCK FACE NO TALENT BITCH!!!! I HATE HIM!!! HE'S IN MY SHIT LIST AFTER WHAT HE DID LAST NIGHT!!!!! WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND DOES THAT! I GUESS SINCE HES A MANSON DEVIL BELIEVER HE THOUGHT HE WAS THE SHIT BUT HE WAS RIDICULOUS!!!!!!! LOVE U TAYLOR SWIFT!!!!! FUCK FAKE FUCKS LIKE KANYE!!!!! NEVER LIKED THE BITCH ANYWAYS!!!!! HES COCKY AS FUCK!!!!!!! TYPICAL HATER!!!!!



  46. 46

    I didn't even know one of her songs, but I was AMAZED at her performance RIGHT AFTER Kanye did that.

    I though her performance was memorable!!!! I remember liking Beyonce's performance, but can't remember much about it. I LOVED LOVED LOVED that she gave Taylor her moment.



  47. 47

    Re: FrankieLons – Me Robaste Las Palabras De La Voca… LOL



  48. 48

    wow so classy, deff knows how to handle herself. Team T SWIFT!



  49. 49

    Taylor is a sweet, classy girl. Kanye is an ignorant ape!



  50. 50

    Great! very nice! She totally deserved that Award!



  51. 51

    Good For You Taylor…and Congratulations on Your Well Deserved Award!!!!



  52. 52

    Nice back handed apology. His actions were wrong period. He's entitled to his opinion and he knows how to properly express them. Why he even cares what the VMAs award to whom is anybody's guess. Go start your own awards show if you think they got it all wrong. I don't agree with every award presented and I can say so at the TV but, to jump on stage? That demostrates just what kind of douch bag he is. Go be an "artist" somewhere else please.

    Clase es Clase no se puede negar la niña es un Dulce You Go Girl!!!



  54. 54

    i love taylor she's such a sweet girl. if anything not that im justifing wat kanye did he's just miserable with himself. but this gave taylor attention she didnt quit ask for so she ended up being the winner of the night. im sure she's not worried about it she owned him on the charts.



  55. 55

    Yeah BIG TOUCH guy waits till a little girl goes on stage to
    start some shit.
    REAL Classy
    SOOOO Many people are gonna listen to you know.
    NOT
    Pathetic loser



  56. 56

    kanye west (unfortunately) will never learn. he needs to redirect his anger to where ever it belongs.. see a therapist or something kanye. But picking on a teenager is a new low for him. classssy! he sucks. TEAM TAYLOR! love her. she is too cute.



  57. 57

    Katy Perry had the best explanation of how I felt = she said it was like he had stepped on a kitten.



  58. 58

    Taylor is incredible and angelic. What a role model!!! What a classy way to handle it! So many others would diss and hate on him (and would have a right to)! But she rose above it and handled it with grace. LOVE TAYLOR!!!!

  59. REMO says – reply to this


    59

    Why do they keep inviting him to the award shows for anyways? I bet his mom is rolling in her grave at the sight of her idiotic son.



  60. 60

    Wow. A teenager is more mature then kanye! He's like a male drama queen.



  61. 61

    she's a class act. can't wait to see her on the view tomorrow.



  62. 62

    I LOVE TAYLOR… SHE IS SO PRETTY AND SHE IS LIKE A PRINCESS BUT KANYE IS SO NASTYYYYYYYY



  63. 63

    Perez, I saw you last night and thought you were so thoughtful. Beyonce doesnt need an award to shine and Taylor was grateful to even be in the category being a country singer.I lost all respect for Kanye and think this was unacceptable. He clearly has no class and thanks for standing up for Taylor. She is so young and modest. I love her, and Im from Houston and have watched Beyonce grow into the most beautiful humble role model.



  64. 64

    Way to go Taylor. Kayne is a mega douche and a prick and his time is OVER. I've already deleted his music from my I Pod…What he did is just beyond retarded. I'm tired of people shrugging their shoulders and saying "oh that's Kayne" and that half A of an apology is crazy. Screw Kayne



  65. 65

    All of my black coworkers are laughing about this incident last night. They think what Kanye did was funny. Now imagine if a white man jumped up and "disrespected" a young, black girl onstage? Would they still find humor in it? Absolutely not. It's okay when a black man "disrepects" a white person but not the other way around.



  66. 66

    kanye sucks…if he wanna get much attention, he must learn how to respect people, esp pretty ladies like Taylor…I and the whole Philippines love Taylor Swift…I wish she'll have her concert her..



  67. 67

    His behavior was so embarrassing that it is best for him if he chose to retire from the show biz and never to be seen again.



  68. 68

    What an amazing girl. She's so humble & gracious in a moment like this. She deserved that award last night more than anyone else. If he's so on top of everything & "real" …why didn't the guy win a single aware for all the catagories he was up for? Piece of shit. Way to go girl! & let's not forget Beyonce's classy response as well. Maybe Kanye will learn a thing or 2 about tactful, respectful behavior. HA!



  69. 69

    That was classy. Kanye is a bully - he picked on a 19 year old…and there's No WAY would he have pulled that on a black woman…and he wouldn't pull it on Pink, because she would kick the s#it out of him. F#ck him, I really hope this hurts his career.



  70. 70

    OMG I WAS SOOOOOO PISSED WHEN THAT HAPPENED! my jaw dropped.. but then again perez wudda done the same thing, just talk about lady guzzler.



  71. 71

    "such a huge ego,he loves his big ego" :D



  72. 72

    taylor deserved that award it was fan voted pep like me spent days voting our asses off.kanye is the biggest douche ever what a fkn arse i've always like his music but never his personality but after this little stunt i hate him!



  73. 73

    Re: Brainbug
    No WAY would he have done this to a black woman. Also, if this had been a white man picking on a black woman, he would be dubbed a "racist" and the media would be making a much bigger deal out of this. Typical double standard.



  74. 74

    An open letter to Kanye West,
    Kanye you say, "…………………… I'M IN THE WRONG FOR GOING ON STAGE AND TAKING AWAY FROM HER MOMENT!………………..I'M NOT CRAZY YALL, I'M JUST REAL. SORRY FOR THAT!!! I REALLY FEEL BAD FOR TAYLOR AND I'M SINCERELY SORRY!!! MUCH RESPECT!!!!!". Kanye you go on being REAL as you put it, but nowhere in any shred of your behavior nor your veiled apology do I believe you have any sincerity when it comes to what you say AFTER THE FACT! You behave like my 7 or 9 year old children yet are an adult man who at this stage in his life should know right from wrong, so I say to you as I say to them, If you KNEW it was wrong you would have never done it in the first place, so obviously you think what you did was right. As for being SINCERELY SORRY, that's crap because let's BE REAL KANYE, you've done this before and unfortunately you'll probably do it again. My children's apologies are sincere, they are 7 and 9 and they are learning right and wrong and guess what when they apologize they mean it and they DON'T DO THAT SAME



  75. 75

    This guy is hurting omg he needs some help or soon he will be bleaching his skin like Michael Jackson!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  76. 76

    THING AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN! Are you entitled to your opinion? Of course you are. Are you entitled to take a moment that someone who has worked maybe the hardest they've ever worked in their life away from them because of YOUR OPINION? NO YOU ARE NOT! It's not the Kanye Awards nor does the entire world share the Kanye point of view. You of anyone I thought dug diversity, it's what makes this world beautiful. But I'm beginning to believe … actually you are a bigot who only believes one thing and one thing only should be celebrated and rewarded and that's whatever is good according to you! I am tired of your entitlement issues when it comes to your "opinion" and your 2 year old behavior. It's time to start acting your age Kanye and being a civil human being. Ever heard of treating others as you would like to be treated!? Try it on for size would ya?!

    Sincerely,
    Cathy Squires - Virginia



  77. 77

    Take note, Kanye. That is what class looks like. She's not going to give you the satisfaction of getting even more attention than you deserve.



  78. 78

    Taylor Swift is such an angel!
    The picture rings perfectly true!
    :D



  79. 79

    Re: stuckinarace – YOU SAY: No amount of apology is going to make this OK.
    Yes, Kanye is a douche who sticks his own fucking foot in his mouth EVERYTIME but if anything the only person he need's to worry about excepting his apology is Beyonce and Taylor. It doesnt fucking matter what any of you fools have to say about ANYTHING. He was not alking about you so get tha fuck over it. I know Taylor is a descent young lady who knows how to forgive unlike any of you heartless bastards.

    Great gurl ayebecelear.com



  82. 82

    she is an amazing young woman. whether you like her or not is not the point. she is classy, humble and real. kanye needs to take notes from this 19 year old girl. he was in the wrong– you can have your opinion all you want, but do NOT take someone else's moment like that. good for taylor for remaining grounded. i love her so much!



  83. 83

    Kanye is a racist and a total loser. He throws a fit when he does not win and ruins her night. His music is not good anymore either and that's the truth. YOU SUCK KANYE!!!



  84. 84

    Kanye is the biggest asshole ever! I used to like his music. I always defended him to my husband who hates him and to everyone else that hates him. PFFT After last night…FUCK HIM! I wanted to cry for Taylor. I was so upset. I was so happy when Beyonce gave her her spotlight. I hope everyone stands together to make Kanye exactly what he is. NOTHING! Dont buy his music, dont play his music and spit on him if you see him in the street. Now i could be wrong but didnt that asshole say he was done with MTV after they opened an award show with the messed up Britney and not him. IDFK But i do know that now MTV should be done with him. Keep him over at BET!



  85. 85

    Another black man that can't control himself…how original.



  86. 86

    Damn…..she seems so f&*king sweet! She didn't deserve that at all. I'm happy that she's taking the high road and showing the class that he'll NEVER have.



  87. 87

    i love taylor swift she is an actual role model
    she is talented, beautiful & authentic
    she doesn't have to dress like a slut to sell records
    or try to be anyone else so she fits in.
    she deserves that award more than anyone in that category she has been OUTSTANDING this year.
    This award was voted by fans and we all clearly love her and wanted her to win
    Kayne never wins cos he's an asshole he's full of shit and no1 likes him
    did you see poor beyonce's face when he started talking she wanted to die!
    he's an embarrassment to himself and everyone around him.



  88. 88

    AWSM!
    He such an asshole!
    Taylor WON that award, so DEAL WITH IT!



  89. 89

    Re: Brainbug – I am so sick of all you fucking RACIST whites making it a RACE THING. Did Kanye say ANYTHING about black and white? No. He simply stated in his idiotic egomaniac way that Bey deserved the award. Im not gonna say that Taylor had the BEST video b/c I think alot of people would agree that she didnt have a better video than Bey, but Kanye was WRONG for doing what he did.



  90. 90

    Taylor, YAY for taking the high road. Don't let the industry vipers change you



  91. 91

    He is a fucking douche.

    DIVE ON A SPIKE ALREADY Kayne!!!

    Im going to go buy her album now!! Go Taylor! As for Kyane if he would have just waited Beyonce won album of the year! What a jack ass!!



  93. 93

    Ohhh please…let not make this about race…black guy disrespecting a white girl or vice-versa. Assholes like Kanye come in every color…
    His behavior should not be accepted…period.



  94. 94

    what else is she going to say? she has the nice, sweet girl image to uphold.



  95. 95

    Re: simplyskyy – You SAY; I've already deleted his music from my I Pod…

    So tha fuck what? You think HE is gonna loose sleep oper THAT. You have already paid for it which means he has already laughed all tha way to tha fucking bank. Seriously people, take a fucking chill pill he disrespected Taylor not any of you fools! I bet NONE of you would be soo mad if it was another young black Artist he disrespected.



  96. 96

    Re: PerezTheBlogNazi
    I definitely think there is definitely a racial component here. He may not be a racist, but he would not have done this to a black woman. That said, he wouldn't have done it to Pink either. Just my two cents.



  97. 97

    omg kanye west is so rude! i dont no why he cudnt jus leave his ass in the seat! kanye west thinks that hes like the most important person alive. when hes def not. hes so selfish, he seriously does need to get over himself.

    beyonce has such a good heart! i cant believe she did that, shes so nice.
    congratz taylor swift!
