Ultra D-Bag Kanye Hijacks Taylor Swift

9/14/2009 7:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West needs to stop. Seriously.



After Taylor Swift -- who is just 19 years old, mind you -- won the award for Best Female Video at the VMAs, Kanye rushed the stage, took the mic from her and proclaimed Beyonce had "one of the best videos of all-time."

For her part, Beyonce looked completely mortified by Kanye's childish actions.

Where was security? I myself am shocked at his actions how evil can you be at someone,s moment like hers. He did do a dirty thing ,,,he took her moment away forever it is like he murdered her in a round about way. He is evil and very dangerous. No to his B.S. get him out of the show biz ,he is a accident waiting to happen. It has just begun and look at the messes he is leaving.

Kanye needs to STOP being Mr. Commentator. Who cares what he thinks and besides who ASKED FOR YOUR OPINION. We do not care what you think about anything Kanye. Why dont you start worry about yourself and do us all a favor and dive off a steep clif with your fake ass. Taylor Swift rocks!!!

He should be banned from all Awards show, lose all sponsorship and be fired from his record label.

HIS EGO IS TOO BIG TO FIT IN ANOTHER AWARD SHOW.

Just saw him on Leno. He didn't seem sincere until Jay pulled the "Mom card" on him. That got him, I laughed. Good job Jay!

Kanye is a d-bag, of course. In fact, he defines the term "douchebaggery"!

What a disgusting pig, to stamp on the moment of a teenage girl... yeah, big man!

Thankfully, Beyonce was classy as always, and didn't encourage his idiotic tirade. Kudos to Taylor AND to Beyonce for being classy ladies!

Kanye... go drown yourself in a toilet. Seriously. Idiot.

Lame bs apology and horrible grandstanding move to begin with.
Kanye is like school in summertime.... No class.

I hate that he is getting so much publicity from this.
He is a no talent hack anyway and should be collecting plastic bottles from my dumpster.

People are so screwed up, but this guy will have his photo in the dictionary next to the entry for douchebag over this gaffe.

The poster who asked what would have happened if a white male singer had pulled the same stunt of taking the mike away from a black female artist hit the nail on the head. He would be a dead man, and that would be the truth and not profiling. It was very much an act of condescending, racist disrespect for a young artist of another race and a different musical genre more commonly associated with that race. Yo' baby, congratulations and all, but you really didn't have such a great video in my opinion, which I think is really more important in this industry than the people who foolishly voted for you.

Accept it. It DID happen. Bigotry works both ways.

There are also those here who are saying cut Kanye some slack, he was just expressing his freedom of speech, yet insisting anyone who disagrees with that to shut up; apparently, far too stupid to understand the meaning of irony.

I'm glad Beyonce did what she did. She is a class act and had the decency to be ashamed of Kanye's antics and show him up for the ass he is with her graciousness.

Kanye~3 strikes and you're OUT! His idea of throwing himself into the media to apologize both last night, and tonite on the Jay Leno show, was a smart one...But Kanye's words of "I'm going to take some time off to figure out.....my life..." Well, Kanye: pack a lot of suitcases, because you need enough time to sort thru your childhood AND celebrity status, to figure out why you feel SO ENTITLED..And why you have no problem pushing your own personal thoughts/emotions/causes onto others, with no regard for THEIR thoughs/emotions/causes. This wasn't a 1 time "episode" for you, Kanye, because we can name 3 or 4 other awards shows where you made a spectacle of yourself~then continued to make & sell music. Yes, it's time to 'take a break' and check yourself, because all of us (you know, US-the people who've MADE YOU A CELEBRITY & pay your bills) are finished allowing you to ruin the good in the music industry, due to your ill-will & uneducated conduct. Lose the Narcissistic personality disorder you're battling. Because last nite on the MTV award show, your disorder got the best of you...And the 1st step in correcting dysfunctional behavioral patterns, is to admit it. The next step is actually DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT - NOT JUST SAYING SO TO PROTECT WHAT'S LEFT OF YOUR HIP-HOP career. Lastly-stop with the racism too while you're working on your other personality challenges. I think you learned last nite that both white AND blacks think you've lost your marbles. Just read the blog posts from your industry peers! I can only wonder what YOU would have done, had someone hijacked YOUR microphone to tell YOU that Justin Timberlake's video was not just an all-time best, but much better than yours??? Somehow I think you would have reacted like a school yard punk...and then whined about it for weeks after. Enough Kanye. It's time to be a MAN. Jewelzzz

ok he made a mistake, he apologized for it and am sure he'll apologize to Taylor in person and yes he needs some time off to relax and look at things from a different perspective. but there is definitely some hate going on toward him from other artists who just don't have his genius (i.e. clarkston, Pink...) , and they love this opportunity to take him down; that is not right either. at the end of the day
he stays a breath of fresh air as far as music goes.

You know there's only so much people, including the music industry can stand. I hope people will distance themselves from him and refuse to work w/him.

He thinks he's "the greatest", well uhh kanye I wont be listening or DLing any of your music ever again this is truly the LAST straw.

I feel for both Beyonce and Taylor, both of them were dragged into Kanye's BS.
It has to be so embarassing.
Both ladies are class acts.
Go to google and type "Kanye West is a" and see all the crap that comes up! Sad thing is, all of it is true!

AND boo to MTV for leaving the mic on while kanye dribbled on w/his senile bs.

This was the first time I watched the clip, and Taylor's reaction brought tears to my eyes. She looked so crest-fallen. I just want to give her a big hug. Poor little sweetie.
