When Did Kanye Yell at Taylor Swift?
It’s no secret that Taylor Swift and Kanye West’s relationship can be described as volatile at best. The pair’s bad blood first became news when the rapper ambushed Swift’s acceptance speech for Video of the Year at the 2009 MTV VMAs — for which he later apologized.
The incident, which occurred on September 13, 2009, was widely reported in the media and is still talked about today. Kanye West had just won the award for Best Male Video for his song “Love Lockdown” and when Swift was announced as the winner of the Video of the Year award, he rushed the stage and grabbed the microphone from her.
He then proceeded to say, “Yo Taylor, I’m really happy for you, I’mma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time!”
The audience was shocked and booed West off the stage. Swift was visibly embarrassed and humiliated. She was also visibly shaken when she accepted her award and thanked her fans for voting for her.
Since then, the pair have had a tumultuous relationship. They have had several public spats, including one in 2015 when West released a song called “Famous” which included the lyric, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that b***h famous.”
Swift responded by saying that she had never given West permission to use her name in the song. West then released a video of a phone call between him and Swift in which she appeared to approve the lyric.
The incident sparked a huge debate on social media and in the media, with many people accusing West of disrespecting Swift. The pair have not spoken publicly since then, but the bad blood between them still lingers.
