Biggest Headline of 2009: Kanye West Storms Taylor Swift's VMA Acceptance

Biggest Headline of 2009: Kanye West Storms Taylor Swift's VMA Acceptance

The VMAs was memorable not for the awards, the show, or the fashion — but for Kanye West's infamous interruption of Taylor Swift's acceptance speech. He stormed the stage after Taylor won Best Female Video for her "You Belong With Me," irate over the fact that Beyonce's "Single Ladies" had lost. Beyonce, with her always great manners, welcomed Taylor back to the stage to complete her thank-you's later in the night. His drinking Hennessy on the red carpet probably didn't do much to help his frame of mind, and the fallout from his shocking outburst was huge — even President Obama weighed in on the situation. Kanye apologized once, and then twice, but you guys still thought all the uproar was totally justified. He took the opportunity to sit down and explain himself on Jay Leno's new show, expressing his sorrow over the ordeal nearly in tears. Taylor ultimately got the last laugh, though, when she skewered the incident during her turn hosting SNL. Kanye has been laying pretty low since September, though he did receive six Grammy nominations, while Taylor got eight.

Omg, I so agree with all that was said above! I love her songs, but she play's too much the "good girl" part! I mean, everyone says she's so sweet and nice, but I can't see her that way! I hate how she talks bad about Joe Jonas to the media! *irony* Very classy! I'm not his fan, but I hate how she exposes their personal life that way. She was dumped? Well, her and other million people around the world! Do we make a big deal about it? NO!

Aw, boohoo Taylor Swift, woe is you...go ahead and cry about some dude stampeding on stage for a laughable MTV award, while you weep in your bed made of millions of dollars. Poor, poor you.
