So, the MTV VMAs went down Sunday night (September 13) in New York, and guess what? Kanye West made a scene again … is anyone surprised at this?

At the beginning of the show, ‘Ye stormed the stage in the middle of country star Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech for Best Female Video, grabbed the mic and — in short — said Beyonce should’ve won the award.

“I’m sorry, but Beyoncรฉ had one of the best videos of all time,” West said, as the camera cut to Beyonce looking on from the crowd stunned. He then got boos from the audience.

With good reason, MTV had West escorted from the building shortly after.

Beyonce, later in the show, invited Swift onstage with her, so she could finish her speech, after winning Video of the Year honors.

“Thank you,” said Beyoncรฉ. “This is amazing, I remember being 17 years old, 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. ”

While this was going on, West took to his official blog (KanyeUniverseCity.com) to explain the situation — in his usual all caps post.

“I’m sooooo sorry to Taylor Swift and her fans and her mom,” Ye wrote. “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!

He continued, offering an apology, but explaining that in the “real world” he’s “just real.”

“I’m sorry to my friends at MTV. I will apologize to Taylor 2mrw. Welcome to the real world. Everybody wanna booooo me, but I’m a fan of pop culture,” West continued. “No disrespect, but we watchin’ the show at the crib right now ’cause … well, you know! I’m still happy for Taylor Boooyaaawwww!!! You are very, very talented. I gave my awards to Outkast when they deserved it over me. That’s what it is!!! I’m not crazy yall. I’m just real. Sorry for that. I really feel bad for Taylor and I’m sincerely sorry. Much respect.”

The show went on without West, and Beyonce went on to take home the most awards, alongside Green Day and Lady Gaga, with three for her hit single “Single Ladies,” while Green Day took home honors for “21 Guns”, and Gaga took home the Best New Artist award.

The ceremony was closed out with a performance of the Big Apple anthem, “Empire State of Mind,” by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys. But, once again, another awkward moment took place. Much like Kanye did earlier, Lil Mama took a page outta his book and came onstage uninvited. As the pair wrapped the performance, Lil Mama came onstage for its closing, and stood next to them as they stood there in their b-boy stance. It was unplanned, but she made it seem like it was.

  2. It would be different of Kanye got up there to boycott some other rap artist but he’s got no business even stepping foot on anything about country music. I don’t listen to the shit but this is just straight disrespectful. Hip hop already ain’t gettin a good look from the rest of the music industry. How’s this gonna make the rest of the hip hop industry look?

  6. I hope Jay Leno “uninvites” Mr. West to be on his premiere show tonight—I will certainly turn off his show before the musical performance if he doesn’t.

  7. What an idiot. I’m glad he got booted that midget. Stop being a hater. Who even listens to his back pack rap. And i’m pretty sure he takes it in the ass, so fuck you and your dead momma. Idiot.

  8. Sorry but I lost all respect for Beyonce after: “If you want it then you shoulda put a ring on it, If you want it then you shoulda put a ring on it, If you want it then you shoulda put a ring on it, If you want it then you shoulda put a ring on it”

  9. That bull shit Lil’ Mama pulled was tacky as hell! She looked like a STAN jumping on stage like that. She needs to stick to judging on ABDC because otherwise she’s irrelevant to anything else.

  10. For all them Kanye haters out the obviously you don’t know … “wait till I get my money right. The you can’t tell me nothing right. Excuse me, is you saying something?!?! Uh uhn, you can’t tell me NOTHING”

    Kanye do yo’ thing, these haters will always hate the man on top … B was easily the best, barbie fondling black fingernail polish wearing emo cry baby c*@$ muscles voted Swift #1 … pansy lames, shop for your jeans at forever 21 tight a#@ squares

  11. Kanye is an idiot for interuppting, but dude had a point…I mean how can Swifty win Best Female Video, when Beyonce won Best Video of the Year??? Feel me? Beyonce should have taken both if she won Best Video of the Year. Fuck MTV and thier viewers.

  12. I’m black and black folks need to stop acting ignorant…that was straight embarassing….LIl MA and Kanye made us look like fools, now white folks got something to talk about…we would of turned if they would have done this to a black artist….Wake up Black Folks….stop acting support artists that hurt out people….

  13. Kanye your a cry baby, your rap sucks man get over it, and go to work at wal-mart, cause your music is as lame as you are.

  14. Kanye wack especially in nyc how can he even compare to the realest mc’s rae ghost KRS too many more. Kanye why don’t you take you and your dooney bags or whatever,whatever and just shut up with all that yaya! and to all ya’ll ‘ye lovers we know you bi1ch3$ are only like 19 so grow up! you can’t tell me nothin haha go listen to some Mos KRS! the real hip hop is over here!! Jus call me Mr Dobalina.

  15. He’s lucky her father or brother wasn’t in the audiance. A beat-down would have definitely occurred.

  16. I have to respect when black people tell it like it is with their own, but there are just as many white a**holes out there. Just because Kanye does something stupid doesn’t ever give white people the right to run any racist s***. I hope one day we all figure it out.
