During her dễ thương acceptance speech, Kanye West jumped up on the stage & grabbed the mic, interrupting with the now-immortal words: "Yo, Taylor, I"m really happy for you & I"mma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!"

If you Google the words "sad kitten", you"ll get a pretty good approximation of what Taylor"s face looked lượt thích during this whole fiasco, while MTV"s cameras cut to Beyonce herself looking horrified in the audience. Once Kanye had shrugged & handed the mic back to Taylor, her time was up.

Kanye was promptly kicked out, while Beyonce used her đoạn phim of the Year win later in the evening as an opportunity to lớn bring Swift back on stage, & let her finish her speech. Because no matter how trying the circumstances, Beyonce remains a flawless human being.
