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?

Curiosity is not a sin. lol

He went about it the wrong way, yes. but the fact that beyonce has worked hareder than tayloe and has been in this biz longer justifies the fact that taylor shouldn't have gotten the award. this award is something someone should get when they've put in a good five to ten years of work. and taylor also got some country award for best something or another of the year. she needs to pick a genre of music and stay in it.

es it does! She got more knowledge than Taylor(the blonde bimbo).  All TAylor does is bash her Exes(like Joe Jonas aka the sexiest guy who could do beter than Taylor).  Beceye sings about other things other tahn her boyfriend or her husband.  Atleast she has a mind.  But Taylor  doesn't use hers at all.

Her voice gets annoying if you hear her songs everyday on the radio and I don't like Tyalor Swift. I'm anti-Taylor fan! When ever she's on tv I boo her.  I think Miley Cyrus is way better than Taylor.  Taylor has no ptenial.  She started when she was 12 and Mileey started at the age of like 9.  Plus she has more experience tahn Taylor has.  Her dad sings and Taylor's dad(who really cares).  She'll be done with career sooner or later!

Kanye was completly out of line. He ruined a huge moment for Taylor. That was her first VMA, and he ruined that moment for her. If he disagreed with it, he could have tweeted about it or said in an interview, nicely, that Beyonce was more worthy that Taylow. He went about it the wrong way.

I don't think that it was right of Kanye to interuppt Swift but he was right about what he was talking about. Swift is not that talented her music is "annoying". It's all about love and I think her so called fans might want to hear about something else for a change.

Umm... I don't like that Kanye West did that because he MADE her popular. This just made her career soar more than it already was. She should be thankful since everyone knows who she is now.  

I'm not a fan of Beyonce or Taylor Swift or Kanye West.

And to be truthful, I'm getting annoyed of Taylor Swift. She is not THAT talented. I like her, but too much is annoying. I also can't believe that she won Best Album of the Year on the Grammy's.

Again, I like her, but she didn't deserve it. Oh well! =)

i agree with you, i mean why would you be rude like that, and the video wasnt even-i mean there was no point to it, and taylors video explained the song,and HAD a point to it, i love beyonce, and kanyes music is good too, but i dont see why anyone would do something rude like that.

I am not a Kanya west fan so...but i love Taylor Swift. And like her music. Yeah Beyonce may have a lot of big hits...but that doesn't really make her a music legend. Right???

Aight so Kanyes like one of my ALL time favorite artist and i mean what he did wasn't right, like it's his opinion and he didnt have to do that to taylor. But i mean it's all show w/ people and it was gossip right? im thinking he just wanted attention. i defend him alot lol like i know him but it was wrong.

Yes that was rude and all but the world doesn't really need to die over it like a nuclear war is going on. Its his opinion but yes, there were other ways for him to do it without acting the way he did. It was disrespectful to someone so young but it just states that we have the right of free speech. Didn't the kick him out after he did that?
