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?

The difference is that Kanye would have a sense of humor about it, not want the world to treat her like the victim of a mob attack.

Ok, I agree that Beyonce is a legend, and her video was great, but I really don't know how you can even ask this question.  Kanye had NO right whatsoever to interrupt Taylor, no matter how right he thought he was.  That was a huge moment for her, and he pretty much ruined it.

I am a Taylor Swift fan and I believe Kanye was COMPLETELY out of line inturrupting her the way he did. It was not professional at all and I felt so bad for Taylor. I could see that he was upset about the whole thing, but that gives him no right to do what he did.

Why would anyone interrupt something like that, though?! I mean, how rude! And I like beyonce AND Taylor Swift, but I think Taylor deserved the award. Kayne West should not have said that, and although he might've thought beyonce deserved it more, that doesn't justify him to be so downright rude

Honestly, I agree with Tommyoo. He's not being rude (excluding some sarcastic comments), but Medina, you're acting like a child. Yes, a child. Tommy actually has some good points about Taylor Swift and unlike you (with the whole Joe Jonas thing) he looks at both sides of the story. He even compliments Taylor several times. Where's your reply to that? Seriously, Tommy is making points, you're just freaking out. If you have something to say, you can say it nicely like Tommy. And why don't you take your time and not only look at what Tommy says (with an OPEN mind) and then THINK about what you're going to say, not just freak out and type the first thing that comes to mind. Tommy has lots of good points about Taylor and he's open minded enough to see that she's not ALL bad and he even says she's a good songwriter. But why don't you listen to his points instead of just getting caught up in a "debate" which is most definitely what YOU'RE doing.

ALSO, ARE YOU INFERRING THAT IM AMUSING?? LIKE A LITTLE GIRL WHO KNOWS NO BETTER?? YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW BAD THAT SOUNDS

YEESH I JUST POSTED A COMMENT AND ITS TURNED INTO THIS WHOLE DEBATE. HERE "MR SMARTY" YOU COULD TAKE THE LAST WORD

Wow. You make me laugh so hard. Who says that we have to know EVERYTHING about a singer's personal life? Their career is about their MUSIC not their lives. Yet, everyone seems so obsessed with knowing every little detail about every facet of their lives. And many stars take advantage of that obsession to become more popular than they already are.

I never said I respected Joe. All I said was that he had more class and integrity to keep his private life private and not go spreading rumors. At least he doesn't wait for someone to say something that can be twisted into yet ANOTHER comment about some ex-boyfriend (no, not just Joe); Taylor seems to jump at any chance to talk about SOMEONE. And the fact that she's announcing to the world who "Forever and Always", "Innocence" and many other songs are about is showing me that she's NOT over them. She enjoys dwelling on things just to get more attention.

And what if Joe (I'm not saying he did and I'm not saying he handled it properly) broke up with Taylor because he no longer liked her? Is that not a good reason? Would you rather a guy stay with you until you get bored with him even if he doesn't like any more? I think not. Believe me, I'm not defending Joe. I'm really not a fan of his; but I'm most definitely NOT defending Taylor. And why does she need millions of fans to cheer her up? Are you saying that if she wasn't famous she'd go psycho because (Heaven forbid!) she'd only have her friends and family to cheer her up? I think a person who is truly down to earth and truly classy wouldn't share EVERYTHING about themselves. Some things are private (such as love and break-ups) and they need to remain PRIVATE. She obviously doesn't care about that.

And with the whole Demi Lovato thing...Demi isn't mad at Joe. She may be mad at Joe for bringing Ashley to a show, but she isn't mad at him for breaking up with her. In fact, she found this to be a learning experience and she learned something that little miss Taylor has yet to learn: that love and relationships should remain PRIVATE. Really, Demi  isn't mad about it. So why should her fans be?

And I'm proud of Taylor for apologizing...but that's all I'm proud of or respect about her. And honestly, I'm not so wrapped up in any star that I'm not willing to see flaws and to see that maybe they're not all they're cracked up to be...maybe you should try opening your eyes a little wider and seeing more than what you want to see.

That's what I have to say to that.

if you HAVE to know, i typed the reply on my ipod which has a tendency to automatically go on caps lock. But who cares about that?!

Anyway, when Tay says who her songs are about, she's not having a big mouth!! She's just being honest. That's one of the reasons i ADMIRE her. How many stars do you know who will let you inside the story of their personal lives. And you think Joe has more class then her?!! So many think he's a jerk!!

He broke up with Swift during a phone call that lasted 27 seconds!! THAT DOESN'T sound like class to me!!

Someone with REAL class would break up with a girl in person, & for a good reason.

Also, recently, he broke up with Demi Lovato. And right after went for Ashley Greene!! Not classy to me.

And i think Taylor is the classy one. When someone's broken her heart she's got millions of fans behind her back to cheer her up. And you also make it sound like she's a brat. She's not. She actually apologized in a song to Taylor Lautner ("Back to December")

What do you have to say to THAT?????

Apparently the caps lock works very well on your computer. Or were you typing this whole thing one-fingered while holding down the shift key?

If you go back and even BOTHER to read my comment, you will notice I never ONCE said that "Better than Revenge" was about Kanye. Because it isn't. It's supposedly about Camille Belle. But that wasn't my point, and once again, if you had bothered to read my comment you would have known what my point was. My point was that Taylor spends most of her life trying to make herself out to be the victim in everything by writing songs that trash the celebrity that "wronged" her. I'm not saying that Kanye wasn't wrong and I'm not saying she was being mean in the song, but the fact that she tells the whole world who the song is about (even IF she didn't name him in the song, everyone knows who it's about), that's just bringing back up what he did and gets all of these people to start thinking, "Oh, yeah, I remember that. He was such a jerk. How could he do that!" therefore renaming him a jerk to any fan of Taylor and regaining all of her fans sympathy, remaking her the victim...YET again.

And I never said writing her songs was a bad thing. In fact she's a very good songwriter and a lot of times you can't tell who her songs about...in the lyrics. But the fact that she can't keep her big-mouth shut about ANYthing. (like who on EARTH would have known "Forever and Always" was about Joe Jonas just listening to it...no one. But that wasn't good enough "revenge" for Taylor so she went on to talk about it to anyone who asked and a bunch who didn't.) And plus, the fact that when Joe Jonas wrote a song about HER and he got ripped up one side and down the other for being a "jerk" when he did the exact thing to her that she did him, only he did it with a little more class. When asked about the song he wouldn't tell who it was about...she just HAD to tell. That makes me lose a lot of respect for her.

And actually, yes, I would have the "guts" to write songs and sing them for the world with "no fear". But I'd also have enough integrity to keep the nitty, gritty personal details (such as the person's NAME) to myself, even when asked.

EXCUSE ME BUT DID YOU ACTUALLY HEAR THE SONG BETTER THEN REVENGE?? IF YOU DID THEN YOU'D KNOW IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH KANYE!! THE SONG IS ABOUT A GIRL WHO STEALS HER MAN (AS OBVIOUS IN THE LYRICS) THE SONG ABOUT KANYE IS INNOCENT IN WHICH SHE DOESN'T SAY HIS NAME. AND SONGWRITING ABOUT HER LIFE IS HER WAY OF MOVING ON!! WOULD YOU HAVE THE GUTS TO WRITE AND OPENLY SING ABOUT YOUR LIFE?? WITH NO FEAR??

Um, did you notice how long ago this was posted? Yeah, a WHILE ago. And Taylor may have "forgiven" but writing a song about it and the fact that everyone knows it's about him is just bringing it up again. If she had really forgiven him, she would have written a song and not told people who it was about. This just means that she's still obsessing over it. And the fact that one of her songs is called "Better than Revenge" just proves to me that she most likely is still boiling over it and wants everyone to remember what he did.

I'm not a fan of Kanye, but most definitely am NOT a fan of Taylor.

He has a point but it was very rude and he could have expressed his thoughts in a better manner. For example, sayin what he said when it was his turrn to perform or get an ward...Now he just lost respect from alot of people who loved his work.

NO WAY Kanye didnt have to say that on the MTV awards!! He ruined Taylor's big moment!!! UNJUSTIFIED!!

on the other hand, that is SO old news. Even Taylor thinks so, forgiving West with her song 'innocent' (performed at the 2010 MTV awards)

Honestly, how would you feel if you won an award and someone just interrupted you? This was not a popularity contest, this was an award given to best video! Taylor Swift had a great video and all Beyonce did was dance in a leotard...whoopi! Taylor desevered this award! :)
