Taylor Swift won “Best Female Video” during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, beating out Beyonce, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Lady Gaga and P!nk.

But Kanye West ruined what was supposed to be Taylor’s big night!
When Taylor was giving her acceptance speech on stage, Kanye ran up on stage, grabbed the
microphone and said, “Yo Taylor. I’m really happy for you. I’m gonna let you finish but Beyonce
had one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!”
Kanye then shrugged his shoulders and walked off stage.Cameras panned for a reaction shot
from Beyonce, who looked shocked.
Taylor stood there, stunned and speechless. The audience stared to boo Kanye as he left the stage
and started to cheer for Taylor.
Soon after being removed from the show, Kanye posted an apology to Taylor on his blog, which
was written in all caps:
“I’m sooooo sorry to Taylor Swift and her fans and her mom [Andrea]. I spoke to her mother
right after and she said the same thing my mother would’ve said. She is very talented! I like the
lyrics about being a cheerleader and she’s in the bleachers! …………………… I’m in the wrong
for going on stage and taking away from her moment!…………….. Beyonce’s video was the
best of this decade!!! I’m sorry to my fans if I let you guys down!!!!! I’m sorry to my friends at
MTV. I will apologize to Taylor 2mrw. Welcome to the real world!!!! Everybody wanna booooo
me but I’m a fan of real pop culture!!! No disrespect but we watchin’ the show at the cribe right
now cause…. Well you know!!!! I’m still happy for Taylor!!!! Boooyaawww!!!! You are very
talented!!!!! I gave my awards to Outkast when they deserved it over me… That’s what it is!!!!
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!!!!!”
Later in the show, Beyonce made good and invited Taylor Swift up on stage to give a proper
acceptance speech. The 28-year-old singer said, “Thank you. I remember being 17-years-old, up
for my first MTV Award with Destiny’s Child and it was one of the most exciting moments in my
life. So I’d like Taylor [Swift] to come out and have her moment.” How thoughtful of Beyonce!!!
Taylor finally got her time in the spotlight, saying, “I’d like to thank all the fans on Twitter and
MySpace and everyone who came out to my shows this summer. Thank you so much!”
