Kanye West has officially lost it! While at the 2009 MTV VMA's Kanye rudely interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for 'Best Female Video' by grabbing the mic from her and acknowledging Beyonce instead.

Beyonce was up against Taylor and lost, which clearly angered Kanye.

Kanye grabbed the mic from Taylor and said, "Yo Taylor, I'm really happy for you , I'm going to let you finish but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time...one of the best of all time!"

The audience then booed him until MTV cut to a clip. Unbelievable! You would think a 32-year-old man would know better than to insult a 19 year-old girl, but Kanye clearly doesn't.

According to MTV.com, once cameras cut away from the action, West flipped off the crowd and returned to his seat.

    He;s a prick. He only wanted to make a scene hoping it'll boost his sales. However, he doubted the Swift fans and their power of booing him.

    Kanye West should be barred from future MTV awards after that performance. I know nothing about the relative merit of the two performances, but what Kanye West did, spoiling the moment for Taylor Swift was an attrocious thing to do. He could have complained about it to the press all he wanted, after the show, but what he did was uncalled for.

    He's a moron and thats the long and the short of it. Even if I didn't like Taylor I'd be pissed at him, who does that? It just proves how immature he is, even if Beyonce did deserve it she was taking it in stride and he should have followed her example. She was shocked he did that and well this just shows how awesome Beyonce is, I mean she invited Taylor back after the whole thing and was kind. I have no respect for Kanye now, and it would be the same had it been any other artist, I wouldn't be sorry if he disappeared from the face of music. In no world not even in an alternate universe would this ever be okay. For anyone to do to anyone else, regardless of who you are.

    Edit: I feel bad that I called him a moron, but still think he was wrong in every way possible.

    Kanye West, you, sir, are an attention whore to the highest degree.

    Swift's video was up against heavy competition, I was shocked to even hear that she won in the first place against "Single Ladies" because of the song's popularity. The votes weighed in though and Taylor snagged it.

    Personally, I like Taylor, I'm not a big huge fan, but I can relate to some of her music and think that some of her songs are pretty damn good. Is "You Belong With Me" one of my favorites? Nope, think it's overdone, generic, and boring, but it's fun to sing to when you're driving down the open roads. It's catchy.

    As for Kanye, he's a bitch for doing it the way he did. He could've written a nice long cutting blog about it like he enjoys doing otherwise instead of hopping up onstage for another one of his moments. Was he right? Well, in the competition range, yep, he was...Beyonce's video was phenomenal. Taylor's was typical.

    And it's pretty obvious that even Beyonce didn't support his move. She looked stunned as he was doing it and then gave Taylor more time to finish her speech.

    For a 32 year old man to make a 19 year old girl to cry well, sorry, but that's just plain wrong to me. There's a time and a place for those things, and that place is NOT national television during an award acceptance speech.
  • browneyes~no~lies 2009/09/14 21:35:16
    That was very rude.
    Although, I cannot stand Taylor Swift at all. And I don't like Beyonce either. But that was still obnoxious of Kayne. Since Taylor won, he should have kept his opinion to himself.

    I actually like Taylor Swift (Beyonce's alright, though I've never seen either video). It's not about whose video was better; it's about the fact that Kanye stepped into her spotlight--her moment--to tell her that she didn't deserve it. That was wrong.

    I don't like either Beyonce or Taylor Swift.
    But, if Taylor honestly earned the reward, then Kanye needs to not be a douche [for once] and keep his mouth shut.
  • InvisibleFriend 2009/09/14 17:16:29
    I don't care, I hate them all.
    Besides, there's no point taking it seriously because it was clearly just a way for Kanye whatever-his-name-is to get some attention.
  • r-w-wako 2009/09/14 15:00:41 (edited)
    He embarrassed Miss Swift, Miss Knowles, their fans, his fans and, especially, himself. There are certain unspoken/unwritten responsibilities and obligations to celebrity and he violated a huge one. I think he hopped when he shoulda hipped.

    How's he keep that foreskin from slippin' up over his head?

    I saw this on tv 30 minutes ago, it was horrible "beyonce had a better video clip than you". I feel horrible, even I'm not from America
  • chrystal97 2009/09/14 05:51:36 (edited)
    I can't tell what the crowd's doing, but it looks like they support taylor, and thought Kanye was wayyy out of line.

    I mean taylor won fair and square. Kanye had no right to embarrass and humiliate taylor. He might not agree with the outcome, but he can be RESPECTFUL. He was being an ass.

    Beyonce didn't like it either. She tried to make up for kanye's stick. She brought taylor back on stage to say her speech.

    It's still not right.

    Who cares if you don't like her? She deserved it, plain and simple. She already won the award, so you can't do anything about it.
  • Andrea Iflyy A... 2009/09/14 04:08:49
    We can say the same when your moment to shine comes.
  • Vic~*PH... Iflyy A... 2009/09/14 21:27:20
    Taylor won the video award fairly, but in no way did she deserve to be publicly humilitated - Beyonce sure didn't back up Kanye's bitch move, did she?
  • no1badb... Iflyy A... 2009/09/14 23:46:20
    That's ok, we think your an idiot but we don't hold it against you.............well maybe some of us do!!!
