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?

First off RUDE isn't spelled rood. Secondly, I agree that Beyonce had a great video, but Kanye should have closed his mouth, and accepted the fact that Beyonce lost.

No, actually I don't like country music at all. I hate it as a matter of fact. I never said I liked country music so yeah.. I actually hate Taylor's music and her voice. I'd much rather listen to Kanye any day bro. It just wasn't right of him to do that. But it was kinda funny.

There's no doubt that Beyonce is better than Taylor. Even if that's so, that was Taylor's moment and Kayne had NO right to do that..Especially since it was none of his business in the first place..

Okay, I don't care who's music video was better, Kanye West should not have done that. It is okay for him to have an opinion, but to go up on stage- on live television- and say something like that is totally uncalled for. If someone is getting an award it doesn't matter if you don't think they deserve it, you should still clap and smile along with everyone else

Alrighty. Kanye was SUPER wrong to do that and was horribly rude. Beyonce is great. Taylor is greater. So she won . . . it's a matter of opinion. Country vs Pop, Taylor vs Beyonce.

ok, I understand that beyoce is great but taylor is an amazing singer and an amazing girl and kanye west was sooooo wrong to do that, taylor swift was almost in tears, it wouldnt matter whose a better singer at that point...(which in my opinion is taylor but that's only because i saw her concert and she was amazing... nothing against beyonce because she's AMAZING) it was sooo incredably rude of kanye to do that.

Both Beyoncè and Taylor Swift are great, but I think it wasn't in Kanye's place to interrupt her speech. That must have been embarrassing to everyone. Plus, he only apologized a year later.

Ok, look. Although Beyonce's video may have been better in some peoples opinion she obviously wans't the voting choice. I personally belive Beyonce's video was better and I am a big Taylor Swift fan. I belive that Kayne West was very wrong to go on stage and steal her big moment and put her down in front of millions of people. Although he was wrong I belive he was truly sorry and he relized he lookes like a total jerk after he did it. As for them "milking the whole thing" Whenever Taylor Swift was asked about it she was very polite and gave short answers and tried to change the subject Kayne West would apoligize and try to move on. As for Beyonce she is an awesome person and it was really big of her to let Taylor finish her speach. So in the end Taylor is the victim although she forgives him. Kayne is someone who made a mistake (which we all do) and Beyonce was the bigger person. I am a fan of all 3 of the artist and belive they are all good people. (All good people screw up every now-and-then :)

Kanye West is a far superior musician to Taylor Swift in all respects, and I mean come on, it was the MTV Video awards. It wasn't the grammy's, which coincidentally enough, Taylor Swift got to accept numerous awards at and make numerous speeches. I'm glad Kanye West did what he did, because I was seriously sick of Swift winning all the awards that she didn't deserve. Kanye had every right to do it, and I'm glad he did. She can get over it, she's got plenty more awards to win anyway.

I think that both of them are kinda milking this whole event. Taylor is being all whiny and playing the victim like she does with most of her "personal life drama" and Kayne West is just so desperate for attention that he stole a teenage girls fame. Personally, both of them need to grow up.

 

P.S. i guess you didn't realize what a can of worms you were opening when you wrote this, did you? :)

I do think everyone is entitled to their own opinoins but I do not think is was right of Kanye to do that. This was her moment to celebrate her accomplishments and he just ruined it for her. He had no right to do that to her it was not fair to her or the audience.

Who's cussing anyone out? Didn't your mother ever teach you to not twist the facts? Debating is not inappropriate behavior. You learn it in school for Pete's sake. Really, calm down.

This is amazing. Does no one know what is appropriate behavior? Did any of your mother's teach you basic manners? I don't care all that much for Taylor Swift, but at least she didn't cuss him out.
