Celebrity Feuds Over the Years

  • 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.

    I thought this was hilarious and Kanye was right. Taylor Swift has not talent and writes the same songs over and over again.

    It doesn't matter who's song or video was better. Kanye had no right to do that.

    Kanye just dug his douche-bag reputation hole a lot deeper that day. Most of us preferred Swifts video and song to Beyonces.

    A-hole move, I'll stand by that. I'll also say that Taylor Swift video was better. All Beyoncé did in hers was dance around in a leotard. NOW saying all that . . . If Kanye did this now, it would be warranted. Like at the AMA's. She was against Adele and Lady Gaga and still won! Sh*t, get three Kanye's up there.

    Ef that, Kanye was right. Swift is an immature and should be criticized more often for how awful her "music" is.
