Beyonce Breaks Silence On Kanye West’s VMA Antics

Beyonce might have deserved the praise she received during Kanye West’s mic-yanking rant at the MTV Video Music Awards — but that doesn’t mean she liked it. 

The “Single Ladies” and “Halo” songbird, making her first comments about West’s interruption of Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech on the program, said she was embarrassed by his antics.

On Friday at Billboard magazine’s annual Women In Music event, Beyoncé told O: The Oprah Magazine editor Gayle King:

“Well, I knew his intentions, and I knew he was standing up for art; and he told me before, when they said the nominees, he’s like, ‘You have this award,'”… “And when they didn’t call my name he was, like, completely shocked. And when he walked on the stage, I was like, ‘No, no, no!’ and then he spoke, and I was like, ‘Oh, no, no, no!’

“But in the end, it ended up being a great night, and Taylor Swift did get her moment,” Beyonce continued. “And I didn’t have to make an acceptance speech.”

Kanye certainly seems to have paid a price — his tour with Lady Gaga was just canceled.

Do you think Beyonce sounds like she’s forgiven him?
