–Taylor Swift was spotted leaving her NYC hotel on Monday afternoon, after a very eventful Sunday. The “You Belong With Me” singer took home the MTV VMA for “Best Female Music Video of the Year” when she was rudely interrupted on stage by Kanye West. After the incident, Taylor answered back with a great performance of “You Belong With Me.” After the live portion of her performance (the subway was prerecorded), the fans and crowd continued to cheer for her for a few more minutes. Taylor looked so grateful and appreciative of the audience. Later that night, Beyonce allowed Taylor to finish her speech.
Taylor told US Weekly” “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.” “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.” “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.” “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.”
Taylor will be making her first appearance on “The View” tomorrow morning and will most likely talk about the incident. She’ll also be performing two songs. Be sure to tune in. (Check your local listings) According to JJJ, Taylor was spotted at the Kings of Leon concert in NY tonight.
Also, Kanye appeared on the Jay Leno show tonight and apologized for the incident. He said: “I’m just ashamed that my hurt caused someone else’s hurt — and I don’t try to justify it because I was just in the wrong. That’s period,” he went on. “But I need to, after this, take some time off and just analyze how I’m going to make it through the rest of this life, how I’m going to improve. Because I am a celebrity, and that’s something I have to deal with.
“And if there’s anything I could do to help Taylor in the future or help anyone, I’d like — you know, I want to live this thing. It’s hard sometimes,” he said.
Do you think Kanye’s apology is sincere/enough? Team Kanye or Team Taylor? We’re Team Taylor!!!! Many celebs including Kelly Clarkson, Pink, Katy Perry & more have all voted Team Taylor. What are you? Do you think it’s played out by now?
