Hollywood Twitters as Kanye Apologizes to Taylor

Last night, the MTV Video Music Awards’ most memorable moment had nothing to do with Lady Gaga’s fireworks-inspired undergarments or the all-star Michael Jackson tribute. It was Kanye West’s rude behavior towards teen sensation Taylor Swift.

Taylor’s hit “You Belong to Me” won the first moon man of the night, Best Female Video, beating top bets Beyoncé, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga. Kanye West couldn’t keep his disappointment to himself, so he jumped onstage from the audience, rudely grabbed the microphone from Taylor and said, “Yo, Taylor, I’m really happy for you. I’ll let you finish, but Beyoncé has one of the best videos of all time… one of the best videos of all time!” he said to a stunned audience.

The cameras panned to Beyoncé looking completely shocked in her seat as Kanye displayed his lack of tact. When Kanye handed the mic back to Taylor, she was too hurt and shocked to respond. The audience screamed and booed. To show their support to Taylor, they gave her a standing ovation led by the VIP celebrities in attendance.

People didn’t think twice about defending Taylor. Newbie Justin Bieber, who was the next presenter, uttered: “Taylor Swift deserved that award.” Later in the show, Beyoncé accepted her award for Video Of The Year and called Taylor back to “come out and have her moment.” The audience applauded when she said, “Let’s try this again.”

According to mtv.com, “It was a moment that had many of the artists in the Radio City Music Hall crowd pretty upset.” Celebrity twitters were instantly filled with Kanye-hate.

Pink:
“Kanye west is the biggest piece of s— on earth. Quote me.”
“My heart goes out to taylor swift. She is a sweet and talented girl and deserved her moment. She should know we all love her.”

Katy Perry:
“F— U KANYE. IT’S LIKE U STEPPED 0N A KITTEN.”
“Vma’s we’re amaze sack but why every1 gotta go ruin the top & bottom of it all, Kan** 2 Lil M*** get OFF DA STAGE IT AIN’T YO TIME 2 SHINE!”

Perez Hilton:
“WTF Kanye????”
“Taylor Swift deserved that award, damnit. It is what THE PEOPLE voted! My heart broke for her, she looked so sad at the end of that moment.”

“Congrats to @taylorswift13 . I got your back.”

Yes, “heartless” Kanye was asked to leave Radio City Music Hall after his inexcusable behavior. While he watched the rest of the show in his home, he composed an all-caps apology to Taylor in his blog.
