I wasn’t going to discuss the MTV Video Music Awards tonight cuz well…why do country music fans care? Well, Taylor Swift’s “You Belong With Me” video was nominated for female video of the year against Beyonce…Guess what? She WON!!! However, Kanye West took it upon himself to steel her thunder…take a look at the video….What a jerk! I don’t care what anyone thinks of Taylor, that was just disrespectful…
**Oh, in a side note…Taylor arrived at the VMA’s in true Taylor-style…via horse-drawn princess carraige.
Check out what some tweeting celebs are saying about the incident:
@Pink Kanye west is the biggest piece of shit on earth. Quote me.
@katyperry: F*CK U KANYE. IT’S LIKE U STEPPED 0N A KITTEN.
@Pink My heart goes out to taylor swift. She is a sweet and talented girl and deserved her moment. She should know we all love her.
@johnrich KanyeWest is a lowlife. He needs to have his @@@ kicked in the middle of the stage! What a piece of @@@@!!! Go TAYLOR SWIFT
@LanceSmithShow It’s not like HE could have won Female Vid. Though maybe he could have, since now we see he wears panties and they were in a wad.
@johnrich Cancel the bastard.
@LanceSmithShow Thatwas1 of the worst displays of character I have ever seenAbsolute classless&sadlynot the 1st time hes played that card
@ladyantebellum: WE LOVE YOU TAYLOR SWIFT!
@danecook Kanye did something incredible tonight. He made me like country music. Kanye is now a Kanyunt.
According to Rollingstone.com
According to sources at the VMAs, Swift was seen hysterically crying backstage after Kanye’s outburst, making it convenient that her performance of “You Belong to Me,” which immediately followed the acceptance speech, was prerecorded. Wale, who is serving as MC for the house band, told the crowd, “You can’t fault a man for speaking his mind,” which was promptly met by boos from the Radio City Music Hall crowd. According to our sources inside Radio City, Kanye was promptly tossed from the VMAs after interrupting Swift’s speech.
UPDATE: Beyonce wins video of the year…and says she remembers being 17 and up for her first VMA with Destiny’s Child, and it was the most exciting night of her life…So, she invited Taylor up to have her moment. A tearful Taylor returns to a standing ovation…You go Girl!!!!!
Kanye also took to his blog to apologize…sorta…for dissing Taylor on television…Take note, it’s a pretty crappy apology…
I’M SOOOOO SORRY TO TAYLOR SWIFT AND HER FANS AND HER MOM. 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!!!!

According to Entertainment Tonight:
Swift said in the press conference, “Before the talented artist, the superstar, she’s always been a great person and I just, I thought that I couldn’t love Beyonce more tonight and then tonight happened and it was just wonderful.”
Initially Swift was excited to see West join her on stage. She said, “Then I wasn’t so excited anymore…”
The young star handled this all in stride, saying, “I don’t know him and I don’t want to start anything because I just had a great night tonight.” She also expressed gratitude for all the supportive text messages she received throughout the night.
Kelly Clarkson, who was also up for Female Video of the Year, took to her blog after the VMA’s to sound-off on Kanye’s childish outburst….JustJared.com has the full blog.
I’ve seen you do some pretty s—ty things, but you just keep amazing me with your tactless, asshole ways. It’s absolutely fascinating how much I don’t like you. I like everyone. I even like my asshole ex that cheated on me over you…which is pretty odd since I don’t even personally know you. The best part of this evening is that you weren’t even up for THIS award and yet you still have a problem with the outcome. Is winning a moon man that much of a life goal?? You can have mine if it will shut you up. Is it that important, really??
“I was actually nominated in the same category that Taylor won and I was excited for her…so why can’t you be?? I’m not even mad at you for being an asshole…I just pity you because you’re a sad human being.
