The ‘’Real’’ Reason Why Kanye Interrupted Taylor Swift’s VMA’s Speech
It has been 11 years since that infamous VMA’s moment when Kanye West jumped onstage and demanded that Taylor Swift‘s Best Female Video award at the MTV VMAs go to Beyoncé instead. Apparently, he claims that God was the one who had him seated in the front row, which gave him immediate access to act upon his impulse to interrupt Taylor’s big moment on live TV.
He also claims that he’d never heard of Taylor, and that it was outrageous how she could have beat Bey and her “Single Ladies” video. “Right now, God is giving me the information,” Kanye, 43, told Nick Cannon on the brand new Sept. 1 Cannon’s Class podcast. “If God ain’t want me to run on stage and say Beyoncé had the best video, he wouldn’t have sat me in the front row. I would’ve been sitting in the back.”

He said he didn’t know who Taylor was as she was onstage accepting the award for her music video, “You Belong To Me.” “They wouldn’t have made it the first award. It’s so ridiculous of an idea because, I had never heard of this person [Taylor] before, and ‘Single Ladies’ is, like, one of the greatest videos of all time,” Kanye explained.
There was also the fact that he was swigging from a bottle of Hennessy from the red carpet on through to the awards telecast. But he claims that his presence was a “set-up.” “And I was only drinking Hennessy because I didn’t want to go to the awards show because it was a set-up,” Kanye further explained to Nick. Can he like.. stop using God’s name? This is terrifying.
