Well, I'm just curious. Mostly everyone has heard about what happened during the MTV awards (Kanye's interruption when Taylor was recieving the award). I was thinking...do YOU think he was justified in interrupting that way? Because, if you think about it, he does have a point. Sort of. Taylor Swift (a..well..her music is OK) vs. Beyonce (a music LEGEND) for the award. Besides, Beyonce's music vid WAS great. What do you think?

I believe that I cannot pick a side, because I love some of taylor swifts songs but i love beyonce's songs. but i think it was horrible that kanye west did that, if the give won an awardlet her win it, beyonce could win anyother award hands down anyother award.

The whole Taylor Swift and kanye West situation, I think was totally unnessecary it was so uncalled for and Taylor didn't deserve that at all. It was her time to shine because she earned it and he ruined her spot light for her. :|

The are both great singers but i don't think Kanye should have got up on stage like that. It is fine to have the opinion Kanye said, but he should have said that afterwards and shouldn't have got up on stage while she was getting the award and say what he said to her.

I think that Kanye had every right to do that. Freedom of speech right? Besides Beyonce should have won, she honestly deserved it. &So true about the whole taylor swift (o.k. music) Beyonce (Music legend) Everyone knows that. Haha &I thought what Kanye did was pretty funny. I mean....did you see Taylor's face?!?!

I like both taylor and betonce and they both deserved the award. If Kanye was drunk, then it kind of excuses his actions. If he wasn't, I wouldn't have done it, but if he thought it was the right thing to do, I'm okay with it. It was mean, i guess, but i don't really have that stronf if an opinion about it. I still love Taylore, Beyonce, and Kanye

It doesnt matter who should have won, what matters is that Kanye was being completely rude when he disrupted Taylor Swifts speech. It is no one elses fault but his.

Both Taylor and Beyonce are great. What happened was between Taylor and Konye. Later when Beyonce won an award she let Taylor finish her speech and have her moment. But besides that fact what Konye did was wrong.

i love beyonce! and taylor swift!! but really, what happened wasnt between them, it was just about Kante, who admitted to being drunk when the incedent occured. i lost all of my respect for him.

SRKFanatic15 said something about him being a genius because we are all talking about it still. Well guess what? Most of us are talking about what scum he is for doing it. And believe or not, he has lost a lot of fans for this event he pulled. So is he actually a genius for doing it? Maybe, in a way to get notice but the negitive impacted him more then anything. He has country music artist about to kick his ass and he lost a lot of fans.

But, it was not Beyonce's fault. I thought that what she did was classy and I still like her as a musician. In fact, I have more respect for her then before.

No offense, but Miley Cyrus is turning out ot be a Britney. Her voice is DISGUSTING and she sings pop when she has a country voice (not that that would make it any better) and what's with the techno? I liked her better when she sang things like the Climb and Just A Girl. I don't like Taylor's voice that much (it's ok) but she can sure write a song.

I agree that Beyonce should've gotten the award, but all the same, it was Taylor's moment and nobody else's. And the fact that Kanye was drunk just makes it worse. Seriously? But, I liked the article. It was a good idea, LilaW.

Well, i thought Kanye must have been drunk so rude. No matter what his opinions were you cannot get on stage and embarrass a young girl after winning an important award. Beyonce is amazing and so is Taylor. It was voted who won. And Taylor was voted the winner. Not Beyonce end off.

Ok I think Kanye could have done it in a different matter if he really did think it was THAT important. I think it was stupid and selfish to interupt her momnent loke that. But if you really think about it...Its just the MTV awards...They dont really say what really what is truely the best they say mainly who people like most and vote for...

He went about it the wrong way, yes. but the fact that beyonce has worked hareder than tayloe and has been in this biz longer justifies the fact that taylor shouldn't have gotten the award. this award is something someone should get when they've put in a good five to ten years of work. and taylor also got some country award for best something or another of the year. she needs to pick a genre of music and stay in it.
