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."

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.

"They told me to stand by the side of the stage, and I didn't really know what was going to go down," she 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."
