Beyonce Wins VMAs Video of the Year, Gives Taylor Swift Her Moment

Beyonce‘s “Single Ladies” picks up “Video of the Year” at the 2009 MTV VMAs, beating out Britney Spears, Eminem, Kanye West and Lady Gaga.

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!”

Taylor and Beyonce hugged both before and after Taylor‘s speech.

Earlier in the evening, Kanye West stole Taylor‘s thunder by interrupting her acceptance speech to praise Beyonce.

    ..my peoples inside the show are saying the producers kicked kanye and amber out of the show after his case of bitchassness.
    .
    single ladies was a huge record/video and it deserved to win (more). beyonce had the best performance of the night (with by far the best vocals, which were live).

    Kayne is stoo-pid Says:

    Team Beyonce and TeamTaylor.
    Kayne is stoo-pid STUPID and a racist.

    I knew someway Beyonce and her dad would not let this happen.It made Beyonce look bad.Ithought they were going to release a press statement and stuff saying Beyonce had nothing to do with Kayne’s rudebehavior.

    That is really nice. What a lovely moment. Too bad it was necessary at all though. I really can’t believe Kanye West. Poor Taylor! Poor Beyonce! But go girls! They made it right together, and that is what people will hopefully remember most.

    That was the best move Beyonce could’ve done by doing that. It showed that she had class and is not inconsiderate like Kanye Bigot!
