Kanye West Says God Made Him Crash Taylor Swift’s 2009 VMA Speech
Kanye is back at it again. Now, he claims that God instructed him to crash during Taylor Swift’s MTV VMAs acceptance speech.
In 2009, Swift was accepting the Best Female Video award at the 2009 ceremony for ‘You Belong With Me’ when West unexpectedly stormed the stage and grabbed the mic. He said, “Yo Taylor, I’m really happy for you, I’ma let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time! One of the best videos of all time!” he said, referring to the nominated visuals for Bey’s ‘Single Ladies’.
Recently, he appeared on the latest edition of Nick Cannon’s Cannon’s Class podcast, where West looked back at the incident and said that God had told him to interrupt Swift’s speech.
“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 and they would’ve made it the first award and he wouldn’t have made it so ridiculous, because I had never heard of this person before and ‘Single Ladies’ is one of the greatest videos of all time.” he explains.
