Kanye West Comments on His Behavior at the 2009 MTV VMAs
So, in case you missed it, Kanye West caused major drama at the 2009 VMAs. After the award for Best Female Video was presented to Taylor Swift for “You Belong With Me,” Kanye stormed the stage. Taking the mike away from the shocked country star, Kanye proceeded to talk about how Beyonce should have won the award for “Single Ladies,” claiming it was one of the best music videos in the past decade.

You can watch video of the moment on MTV.com, so long as you’re not caught up by region restrictions.
Beyonce looked horrified (and later rectified the situation: after she won Video of the Year over West himself, she announced that she wanted Taylor to come to the stage to have her VMA moment) and Swift somehow managed to pull herself together for her performance later that evening.
But Kanye was apparently removed from the building. And when you’re Kanye West, what do you do? You blog. Angrily.
