Kanye West won the category of Douchebag Of The Night tonight at the VMAs, snagging the microphone away from Best Female Video winner Taylor Swift. Was that even the real Kanye? I don’t recognize him without the autotune.
On stage, as Taylor was giving her acceptance speech, he grabbed the mic from her and proclaimed, “Yo, Taylor — I’m really happy for you. I’ll let you finish. But Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time! One of th best videos of all time!!”
Beyonce, being as classy as she is, won the award for Video Of The Year, and instead of giving her own acceptance speech, gave the stage back to Taylor Swift.
Kanye probably felt like an asinine fool, so he quickly posted this apology to his official website, which is currently down.
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!……………..
