Taylor -- Beyonce 'Immediately' Reached Out

9/14/2009 5:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Taylor -- Beyonce 'Immediately' Reached OutAs soon as the VMAs ended, Beyonce Knowles wasted no time distancing herself from Kanye West's infamous hissy fit -- we're told Bey's camp almost "immediately" approached Taylor Swift to make sure she was okay.

Taylor's rep tells us Beyonce's father Mathew Knowles approached Taylor outside her dressing room once her subway car performance was over.

We're told Mathew wanted to make sure Taylor was doing fine after West's diss -- and they even discussed ways to make up for it.

Taylor's rep tells us the singer was mainly upset because she wasn't able to thank her fans for voting for her -- which was eventually made right when Beyonce invited her back on stage to finish what she started.

Taylor's reps tell us she had never met Beyonce or Kanye before the last night's weirdness went down.

You are quite a lady Taylor. You handled yourself well with Joe Jonas and now this. I love to see a young lady with so much class. Kayne made an extremely bad move. Definitely. I love love love Taylor Smith and think she is a great kid and sweet role model for my 14 year old. I also like Kayne and feel he too is extremely talented My Ego rocks! The problem is that he is sick of MTV giving out awards to artist who are not the best one for the award. Case being he gave his own award once to who all knew was probably more deserving. HE IS NOT A BAD guy. This had nothing to do with Taylor Swift it could have been lady gaga or any of the others and he would have felt the same way. He just is not like most who sit back and say nothing. Now had it been any older more experienced artists he would been told off right there rightfully so but Taylor is a nice girl who was enjoying that moment of a dream come true and he blew it for her and she will never get it back. He should promote her music and offer to work with her for free that may touch on the apology she deserves. If that was my little sis I would be after him too. Kayne sweetie you mean well truly but just be careful when and where you speak and express your rightful thoughts! DO go above and beyond to make this up to TAYLOR and quit expecting MTV to change their award giving process this been going on for years before you got there!

Pink said it best. Kanye is a tool and a waste.

I've deleted his songs from my ipod and he won't get any more of my cash. I know my petty cash isn't a loss to him...but he lost a fan. Probably more than one. That should mean something if he truly cares about his fan base.

What a lack of disrespect! No one "stage hogged" him when he has won or when he paid tribute to his mother and he should give others the same courtesy. Can we say "mangina"?

THE CHILDREN ARE NOT BEING PROPERLY SUPERVISED...PERIOD!    

LOOK HERE "EVERYBODY", TAYLOR DIDN'T HAVE THE #1 VIDEO, BUT SHE WON
ANYWAY, PLUS KANYE GAVE HER ADDITIONAL SHINE UNTIL NEXT YEAR.

WHAT MORE COULD SHE ASK FOR, KANYE GAVE TAYLOR MORE SHINE THAN IF SHE
HAD WENT HOME AFTER THE AWARDS, AND NO ONE WOULD HAVE GIVEN TWO CENTS
ABOUT THE GIRL AFTER LAST NIGHT IF KANYE HAD NOT DID WHAT HE DID.

HELL I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHO SHE WAS BEFORE LAST NIGHT!!

Not that Kanye wasn't rude but it was MTV that cut her off. He gave the mic back to her right after he finished his "statement" so if she was upset about not thanking her fans, that was MTV.

Taylor needs tougher skin if she wants to survive in this business. Due to Kanye's diss, she will sell a million more copies of her album. She can thank Kanye all the way to the bank. Kanye has lost almost all credibility and he's yesterday's news.

You know, he didn't kill anybody or anything like that. Afterall, that's what it takes to get people's attention nowadays. It certainly wouldn't have hurt his hip hop career. However, there was a time when respect ruled the day. People understood what a priveledge it was to be a celebrity - to be an influence and a role model. There was a sense of responsibility... and there was a mutual admiration and respect between artists. Even ones competing for the same accolades and money. Additionally, there always seemed to be a presence within the industry to set guys like Kanye straight... or send them packing. This guy has been running off his mouth for years now, and nobody can seem to get him to shut the hell up. What has happened? And crap like Michael Vick playing football for the NFL again? Were being overrun by idiots. And we're buying it. And sadly, the kids are being raised in it.

Some days I just want to jump off... sans net.
