In case you missed it...
Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for Best Female Video. It was the teen country music star's first VMA win and she had defeated huge stars such as Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Kelly Clarkson. Not everyone was happy. Kanye stormed the stage and proclaimed that Beyoncé should have won, which caused him to be booed off the stage immediately.
Rumors are circulating that this was planned. I don't know if I believe that but MTV is known for shock moments. Kanye makes outbursts year after year and is always invited back. After all, it gets people talking and gets MTV more ratings. It's bad that it was at the expense of Swift. However, Beyoncé invited Swift up to finish her speech when it was time for the Single Ladies star to accept the award for Video of the Year. In the end, both women were robbed of their moment. Kanye needs to get on some medication. His music is no longer able to outshine his antics.
He did issue an apology via his blog in his typical all caps fashion:
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!…………….. BEYONCE’S VIDEO WAS THE BEST OF THIS DECADE!!!! I’M SORRY TO MY FANS IF I LET YOU GUYS DOWN!!!! I’M SORRY TO MY FRIENDS AT MTV. I WILL APOLOGIZE TO TAYLOR 2MRW. WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD!!!!

He defintely failed to keep his composure.
