Kanye interrupts more than just Taylor Swift

In an extremely ungrateful and undignified way (but not surprising), Kanye decided that he wasn't just content with complaining about his own failures (such as trying to argue on stage that he deserves awards that are won by others), but convinced that he can "speak the truth" about perceived injustices which befall others.

Well, tonight that wonderful man decided that Beyoncé deserved the win for Best Female Video at the MTV Video Music Awards (probably one of the few days that music is performed on the network each year). So, not believing what was happening when Taylor Swift happened to win, he promptly went on stage in the middle of Swift's acceptance speech to set the record straight. He took the mic from her and went on to say that Beyoncé had "one of the best videos of all time" before shrugging and walking off stage leaving a visibly upset Swift standing there, with the audience knowing that a precious moment in that young musician's life was just crushed.

People shouldn't be surprised. This just happens to be one of numerous times that Kanye has done something along these lines. People may remember last week's presidential speech...

In other related news, Kanye loves fish sticks.
