Okay, I just joined Teen Ink, but I was also watching the VMA's.I saw Taylor Swift get her award for best female music video. The camera man turns to the crowd for not even 10 seconds and when he goes back to Taylor , Kayne West is standing right next to her. Andd he says," Taylor I will let you get back to your speech in a moment , but did you know Beyonce is winning best female artist...." (not his exact words but close).Everyone in redio city music hall was shocked even BEYONCE!He totally ruined Taylor's moment! Seriously, he'd be pretty damn upset if someone intterupted his award.I used to like Kayne more but now I definatly DONT.Go team Taylor!And P.S he can't even take back what he said!

I agree with u (Even though this is a really old post) Taylor Swift is awesome, and even if she wasn't, I know there is racism around MTV awards, he still had no right to interrupt her moment. It isn't her fault that there can be racism around the awards. She got the award and was super excited--anyone would be! #TeamTS

I don't really like Beyonce or Taylor Swift very much, but that was still very, very, rude. The people who decided who got the award must've had a reason to do so, so Kanye had no right to say any of that.

ok, i don't know why you think he's a racist, because that's definitely not what i took from the experience. what i did see was just some loud stupid rapper who was probably just looking for some extra attention. i think taylor swift handled it very maturely, not making a big deal about it. i don't get why everyone else made it into such a huge thing though. like, okay. it was dumb and reckless, but who cares? its over and no one got hurt and nobody really liked Kayne to begin with. or if they did, they certainly don't now. anyway, yeah, it was stupid and whatever, but come on. there are bigger things happening. if taylor got over it, why can't everyone else?

that's not even the point though. who the heck steals an innocent 17 year old cutsie bumpkin's award? its just a classless, immature move. and i don't even like taylor swift!

After this incident, The Fray, who had done a cover of one of Kanye's songs, dedicated it to Taylor at one of thier concerts. That was pretty cool.

rappers are people too and w.e they choose to say should not hurt other people.No one cares if Kanye West is known to be loud, he had no right to interrupt Taylor Swift to say something stupid that wouldn't had made a difference in who should've won the award. Kanye West is a jerk and he is rascist. If Taylor Swift wouldn't have been white, he wouldn't had said anything.

I don't think the incident was as big of a deal as people make it out to be... Everyone knows that Kanye West is loud, outspoken, and very rude. He might have been mean, but that IS what rappers are today. Taylor Swift honestly needs to grow up if this hurt her so much. The whole thing looks like it was staged anyways, so that a few more people would know who this country-wanna-be-pop singer is.

Yeah, taylor luva, I agree with FunXsize3. Because I doubt Kanye West would have wanted to win the Best Female Music Video award. :P

I think that Taylor should thank Kanye. By doing that in front of the entire viewing world, more people got to know who Taylor was. The months that followed, Taylor became even bigger and more people knew who she was because of Kanye. So thanks kanye!

He was drunk too! He was told not to be drunk and yet he was. Beyonce called Taylor back up when she won and award and let Taylor finish her speach. Kanye West is horrible! >:p
