The 2009 MTV Video Music Awards is by far the most talked about in all of the Award’s history. If you’ve forgotten why, let us refresh your memory. Does “I’mma let you finish” ring a bell? Well, simply put, Kanye West deprived Taylor Swift of her first VMA moment.
Billboard recently published an article detailing what happened behind the scenes after the heart stopping moment, and it truly was chaotic. The article outlines different accounts and points of view from the historic night, and every single person saw something significant. Most of all, Beyoncé and Taylor Swift had tearful memories from that night alongside Taylor‘s mom.
According to Billboard, Kanye was sighted on the red carpet clutching a bottle of Hennessey which former VP of talent relations, MTV News first reveals. According to her, she asked “what’s up with you?” And he replied “I’m here living my best life.” Fast forward to the moment when he passed around the bottle of Hennessey for everyone else to take a sip from in a really cool moment. Pete Wentz is quoted saying “he made me take a swig. The dude is so wasted.”
Then comes the moment when Taylor was giving her acceptance speech for winning the Best Female Video Award. Kanye reportedly walks up the stage, hijacks her mic and says
“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!”
A shocked Beyoncé mouths the words “Oh, Kanye“. Later on, she is seen with her dad backstage, crying her eyes out and saying she had no idea about it. Taylor on the other side cries with her mom, she is quoted later saying;
“When Kanye first jumped up on stage I was really excited because I’m a huge fan and then… I was not as excited.”
