Dear Kanye West – Sit your ego-driven, attention-starved ass down and stop ruining everyone’s night. You know your mother would slap you silly if she were here. Love, A Former Fan
Thanks for letting me get that off my chest. As you know, Kanye West ruined Taylor Swift’s big moment at the MTV Video Music Awards last night when he rushed the stage as she was accepting her award for Best Female Video. Kanye grabbed the mike from poor Taylor and then started shouting about how Beyoncé’s video should have won. Hey, I liked Beyoncé’s video better, too, but I have other ways of getting my point across. Hello – that’s what Twitter was invented for.
See the video after the jump.
MTV reported that Jay-Z’s DJ, Neil Armstrong, saw Swift and her mother crying backstage afterward. Taylor’s mom must have given Kanye a kick in the balls because before the awards were over he had posted an apology on his blog to the two of them. “I’m soooooo sorry to Taylor Swift and her fans and her mom,” Kanye wrote in his all-caps rant. “I spoke to her mother right after and she said the same thing my mother would’ve said.”
Anyone else dying to know what Taylor’s mom said? I know what I would have said if that was my daughter up there being humiliated on stage.
Here’s the video of Kanye being an asshole, and his full apology that was posted on his blog.
