Taylor Swift Speaks Out on Kanye Incident
After Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards - during which Kanye West brazenly interrupted Taylor Swift's Best Female Video acceptance speech to say that Beyonce deserved to win - the 19-year-old singer spoke to reporters about the incident.
"Well, I was standing on stage because I was really excited because I had just won the award," she began. "And then I was really excited because Kanye West was on stage. And then I wasn't so excited anymore after that."
After the bizarre incident, she said celebs reached out to her backstage. (Some even Twittered. Pink, for instance, wrote: Kanye west is the biggest piece of s*** on earth. Quote me.")
Said Swift, "I've been getting so many text messages and everybody's been really nice. So I've had a really, really fun night. It's been interesting definitely. It's definitely been an interesting night."
She said she doesn't have any ill-will toward the rapper, 32, of whom she said she was once a fan.
"I don't know him, and I've never met him, so..." she said. "I don't want to start anything because I had a great night tonight."
She also thanked Beyonce (who won Video of the Year), who invited her on stage as she accepted her award to give an acceptance speech.
