Kanye West Crashes VMA Stage During Taylor Swift’s Award Speech Kanye West Invades The VMA Stage During Taylor Swift’s Speech

This time Kanye West picked the beginning of the Video Music Awards to deliver one of his famous rants. At least he got it out of the way quickly.

The rapper stormed the stage just after the first award, for Best Female Video, was presented to Taylor Swift. He cut the teen singer off, grabbing the mic and protesting in support of Beyoncé.

“I’m sorry, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time,” he proclaimed as B looked on from the crowd, stunned.

Swift was also shocked as West momentarily pulled the Moonman out of the country star’s hand.

During the 2007 VMAs in Las Vegas, West delivered another bombastic rant and lost if after he was displeased with his performance being set inside a hotel suite rather than on the show’s main stage.

At the time he vowed to never return to an MTV awards show.

‘Ye’s often displaced rants are usually in support of his own work. He memorably took the stage at the American Music Awards in 2004, declaring he was robbed of the Best New Artist nod.

His protest against Swift, however, was not well received. West stood briefly on the stage after his comments as the crowd was silent. Audience members then began to clap in support of Swift after West left the stage.

Once cameras cut away from the action, West apparently flipped off the crowd and returned to his seat. During the next commercial break, Pink walked by the rapper and appeared to shake her head in disgust before security escorted her away. West remained steadfast amidst the commotion as he planted a kiss on his girlfriend Amber Rose.
