Celebrity Feuds Over the Years
This celebrity beef became so heated it got the attention of the White House! Not even an hour into the 2009 MTV VMA Awards, country superstar Taylor Swift had taken the stage to accept her “Best Female Video” award when she was interrupted by a tipsy Kanye West. The rapper snatched the mic from her and told the crowd that Beyonce was the more deserving artist of the coveted Moon Man. Although he later apologized via Twitter, the damage was already done. West was harshly criticized in the media for what many called a classless move. One of the more prominent criticizers was President Barack Obama. During an interview, he called Kanye “a jackass” for his actions that night.
