Keeping out of trouble! Kanye West decided the best way to make sure he behaved himself when Taylor Swift went up on stage to collect her Best Female Video award at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, Aug. 30, was to take a little nap!


As Us Weekly previously reported, this year's awards show saw Swift and West bury the hatchet, with Swift joking about West's now-infamous interruption of her 2009 acceptance speech, while presenting him with this year’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

But while any tension was officially laid to rest on the VMAs stage, West had already taken his own precautions when it was Swift's turn to take to the stage to collect her award.

The 25-year-old pop star, who was awarded the Best Female Video gong for her hit "Blank Space," once again beat out Beyonce to the award (which was the gripe West had back in 2009, when he felt his pal Bey was more deserving than victorious Swift).

But as MTV's audience cams zoomed in to see the Yeezus singer's reaction, and be ready for a rerun of his stage-storming antics, an older and wiser West decided the best course of action was to nap!


Judging by the response of those around him (including that of wife Kim Kardashian and pals John Legend and Chrissy Teigen), everyone in the audience was breathing a huge sigh of relief!
