Kanye West got kicked out of the VMAs (according to Pink)

Main VMA article:

So Andy Samberg presented an award to Beyonce (for best music video of the year; Andy and Beyonce gave each other a celebrity peck/kiss), and then Beyonce invited Taylor Swift up to take her time instead (Taylor is a huge fan of Andy Samberg) because Kanye West ruined her win (for best music vid featuring a female artist) by grabbing the mic and saying that Beyonce should have won (an act he had committed 3 years prior).

Didn't know that Kanye already did this? Observe...

The last time he did this was even better, at the MTV Europe Music Awards in
2006. After his "Touch the Sky" video lost to Justice vs. Simian's "We Are Your
Friends," he jumped up and grabbed the mike... and ranted that he deserved the
award because his video "cost a million dollars and Pamela Anderson was in it."


Well, Pop Tarts learned that Swift was comforted by her friends and family immediately afterwards and was upset by the whole incident. An inside source told Tarts that West was asked by a big-wig at MTV to immediately leave the show. Pink also took to Twitter to confirm that Mr. West had been given his marching orders.

"Kanye west is the biggest piece of *h** on earth. Quote me," Pink tweeted. "My heart goes out to taylor swift. She is a sweet and talented girl and deserved her moment. She should know we love her. Beyonce is a classy lady. I feel for her too. It's not her fault at all, and her and taylor did their thing. And douche bag got kicked out. HA"

Taylor Swift is trying to keep the Kanye West flap from going on and on and on.

"I don't want to start anything because I had a great night," the 19-year-old told reporters backstage at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.


"I was standing on stage because I was really excited because I had just won the award," Swift recalled. "And then I was really excited because Kanye West was on stage. And then I wasn't so excited anymore after that."


Beyonce won later in the night and gave Swift a chance to have the acceptance moment West ruined.

"They told me to stand by the side of the stage, and I didn't really know what was going to go down," Swift said. "But I thought it was so wonderful and gracious of her to do what she's always done. She's always been a great person before anything else. Before the talented artist, the superstar, she's always been a great person and I just, I thought I couldn't love Beyonce more tonight, than tonight."


Swift will get a chance to revisit the scene when she appears on ABC's "The View" tomorrow.

"I've been getting so many text messages and everybody's been really nice," Swift said. "So I've had a really, really fun night. It's been interesting definitely. It's definitely been an interesting night."
