2009 MTV VMAs Controversy
On September 13, 2009, Taylor won the award for Best Female Video Award for ‘You Belong With Me,’ and that was supposed to be a happy day though it was. However, it turned out to be indeed a dramatic one. All thanks to Kanye West. What really happened?
So, when Taylor was there on the stage for her thank you speech, Kanye came over and took the mic from her hand, interrupting her speech, and the moment was quite a shocker to everyone. He said that he was happy for Taylor but further added that Beyoncé had the best video of all time.
Not just Taylor, Beyoncé was embarrassed at that point too, and it was not something nice to be seen. Later, Kanye apologized for the incident too.
How Did Taylor React?
However, when the reporters asked Taylor about how she felt on the stage, her response was, of course, not a shock to people. She said when she was on the stage, she was really excited about winning the award. But as soon as Kanye landed on the stage, everything was turned off, and boom, there wasn’t any excitement later.
Taylor, in the 2016 Grammys, was also seen kind of pointing out the incident smartly. On winning the Album of the Year that year, she said in her speech to all the young women out there that there would be many people in their way who would try to discredit your hard work for fame.
She further added that all this should not stop you. Just be focused, and don’t let those people distract you in any way. Ending her speech, she said someday, when you will learn that where your life is leading you, you will understand that it was all because of you and the people who love you, and it would be the best feeling ever.
The Scooter Braun Drama
This incident between Scooter Braun and Taylor Swift also involves Kanye West in it. It was all about Kanye West’s song ‘Famous,’ and Taylor completely blames Braun for everything that happened. The song was all about the 2009 award incident where Kanye interrupted Taylor’s speech.
However, when asked Taylor about the song, she denied that she had no idea what the song was going to be about. But later, Kanye’s then-wife Kim Kardashian released a video that indicated that Taylor knew and was agreeable to the concept of the video.
Scooter Braun was then West’s manager, and Taylor blamed him for all this. Taylor gained loads of support at that time.
