Kanye West spoils Taylor's moment at MTV Awards 2009

As we like Kanye West's song Heartless, no surprise he did show his "heartless" during the MTV Awards 2009.

The talented Taylor Swift just won Best Female Video, beating out Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, and Beyonce,Kelly Clarkson, to name a few.

But as Taylor took the stage, she started to give her acceptance speech only to have Kanye West jump on stage and take her mic to proclaim that BEYONCE really had one of the best videos of all time!!

"I always dreamed about what it would be like to win one of these one day," Taylor said with surprise. "I never thought it would happen."

As Taylor continued, Kanye interrupted, saying he thought Beyonce's "Single Ladies" video was wrongly overlooked. "Hey Taylor, I'm really happy for you, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time."

Taylor looked humiliated.


The crowd then started to boo and Kanye stormed off stage and left poor Taylor speechless and I'm sure she felt humiliated before she was escorted off stage.

Kanye is a guest at the MTV Video Music Awards. He does not determine the winners. The winners are determined by popular vote. Furthermore, aside from the fact that Taylor Swift is a top-selling artist, who has revolutionized teen country pop, she did not have any competition in this category as her competitors Beyonce, Lady GaGa, Pink, and Kelly Clarkson split the pop vote. Taylor had to get 100 percent of the country vote, plus some of the pop vote as well.

He ruined Taylor's big moment!The audience countered him by giving her a standing ovation, and booed Kanye throughout the night whenever his name was mentioned.
Taylor performed "You Belong With Me" live just minutes later. She did channel that negative energy into a positive. Good for her.

Fortunately, Taylor got another chance to complete her acceptance speech. When Beyonce accepted the Best Video Award for "Single Ladies," she invited Taylor back on stage.
"Wow, this is amazing," Beyonce said when receiving her award. "I remember being 17-years-old and up for my first MTV award with Destiny's Child. It was one of the most exciting moments in my life. So, I'd like for Taylor to come out and have her moment."
Taylor then joined Beyonce on stage and recited her acceptance speech, only making a subtle reference to the incident. Before rattling off her special thanks, she said, "Maybe we can try this again."
Oh Kanye..How could you be so heartless?
