It looks like the Taylor Swift and Kanye beef is far from over. Kanye officially became America’s leading douche bag when he interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2009. This was Kanye’s least flattering moment in the media, besides that one time he claimed on national television that President George W. Bush didn’t care about black people, as a direct result of the then President’s response to the handling of Hurricane Katrina. Since then, Kanye has pretty much solidified his role as one of the most outspoken celebrities of our generation. And in essence, it’s one of the reasons he’s managed to be such a talked about figure in music, right along with his undeniable talents as a producer. But his talent (and apologies) alone just may not be enough to make Taylor Swift forgive him for interrupting her big night because he (and quite a lot of people) felt Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” video was just more deserving of being selected for Music Video of the Year.
The other night, during the MTV EMA Awards, it’s being said in the gossip realms that Taylor (who had a big night) was making some pretty diva demands when it came to Kanye and his current girlfriend Kim Kardashian. As it was reported, Kim was there with Kanye not only for support, but she also presented an award. Apparently Swift is still not over the fiasco that happened a few years ago, as insiders claimed she pulled her big star card and demanded that Kanye and Kim be seated nowhere near her. Reports also claim that Swift requested that her dressing room also be nowhere near “Kimye” as well.
The Daily Record reports:
With Rihanna, Katy Perry, Beyonce and Lady Gaga nowhere to be seen, the country-pop singer, 22, stole the show – after laying rules down to stop unwanted interruptions.
In 2009, rapper West jumped up on stage at the Europe awards as Taylor was picking up Best Female Video and claimed Beyonce should have won. Awkward.
But that didn’t hold us back from putting our stilettoes in it.
We asked Taylor if she had anything prepared to cover up any Kanye-isms and the usually meek and mild star got well stroppy.
“Oh, come on,” she bellowed before storming off.
We are never, ever, ever getting an interview with Taylor Swift again.
A source told the Razz that Taylor had requested the rapper was banned from her backstage area – and his girlfriend Kim Kardashian’s dressing room was moved to the opposite side of the venue.
Kim, 32, who presented an award, was warned to steer clear.
Our source also revealed the seating plan had to be completely readjusted when Kanye confirmed his attendance just days before the event – as Kim’s plus one.
Oh, how the tables have turned.
