Taylor Swift Talks Kanye West VMAs Incident
At Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, Taylor Swift was interrupted by Kanye West during her acceptance speech for Best Female Video to say that Beyonce deserved to win. The 19-year-old country cutie opened up to reporters about the incident.
“Well, I was standing on stage because I was really excited because I had just won the award,” she said. “And then I was really excited because Kanye West was on stage. And then I wasn’t so excited anymore after that.”
Added Taylor, “I’ve been getting so many text messages and everybody’s been really nice. So I’ve had a really, really fun night. It’s been interesting definitely. It’s definitely been an interesting night… I don’t know him, and I’ve never met him, so… I don’t want to start anything because I had a great night tonight.”
When Beyonce won for Video of the Year, she let Taylor have the spotlight during her acceptance speech.
“They told me to stand by the side of the stage, and I didn’t really know what was going to go down,” Taylor said. “But I thought it was so wonderful and gracious of her to do what she’s always done. She’s always been a great person before anything else. Before the talented artist, the superstar, she’s always been a great person and I just, I thought I couldn’t love Beyonce more tonight, than tonight.”
