An Entertainment Hodge-Podge

Video Drama Mama | September 13, 2009

And, yet again, celebrity drama will be the focus of many conversations tomorrow.

It all began with Taylor Swift’s thanks speech for winning the Best Female Video. The 19 year old singer-songerwriter was ambushed by Kanye West when, in the middle of her speech, snatched the microphone out of her hands. And, he didn’t grab the microphone to congratulate or thank her.

Rather, he said, ” Yo Taylor. I’m really happy for you. I’mma let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time.”

The shocked Swift didn’t say anything after West handed her microphone back.

Now, when I saw this, I decided to do some more Internet surfing and stumbled upon this lovely photograph.


West seems to be enjoying a nice bottle of Hennessy. Did he finish any of the bottle before he interrupted Swift?

However, Beyonce Knowles handled the situtuation thoughtfully and tactfully. When she was called to the stage after winning Video of the Year, she handed over her thank you speech to the young Swift.

“I remember being 17 years old, up for my first MTV award with Destiny’s Child, and it was one of the most exciting moments in my life. So, I’d like for Taylor to come out and have her moment,” said Knowles.

And, to what looked like a standing ovation and millions of screams, Taylor walked out onstage and was able to have an acceptance speech.
