Kanye West crashes Taylor Swift’s VMA moment

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Every award show has its YouTube moment and for the Video Music Awards on Sunday, Kanye West provided himself as the spectacle.

The 32-year-old rapper stormed on stage during an acceptance speech by Taylor Swift for ‘Best Female Video’ and unleashed an astonishing rant, leaving the country starlet humiliated.

Grabbing the microphone off the 18-year-old singer, he said: “I’m sorry, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time,” referring to the former Destiny’s Child members ‘Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)’.

As West handed back the microphone, a shell-shocked and unable to continue Swift seemed close to tears.

According to sources at the VMA’s the ‘Love Lockdown’ singer was soon-after kicked out of the building, while ‘Swift was seen crying hysterically backstage’.

However, a clearly mortified Beyoncé ended up providing damage control by giving the young star a chance to finish her speech during her acceptance for ‘Best Video’.

Oh Kanye, your such a clown. In your own words…how could you be so heartless? (err Apologies for the bad pun)

Check out the incident on the video above…
