Kanye West Crashes VMA Stage During Taylor Swift's Award Speech

Kanye continues his history of onstage award-show rants.

By Jayson Rodriguez, with additional reporting by James Montgomery

This year, Kanye West picked the beginning of the Video Music Awards to deliver one of his famous rants.

The rapper stormed the stage just after the first award, for Best Female Video, was presented to Taylor Swift. He cut the teen singer off, grabbing the mic and protesting in support of Beyoncé.

"I'm sorry, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time," he proclaimed as B looked on from the crowd, stunned.

During the 2007 VMAs in Las Vegas, West delivered another rant and lost his temper after he was displeased with his performance being set inside a hotel suite rather than on the show's main stage.

'Ye's rants are usually in support of his own work. He memorably took the stage at the American Music Awards in 2004, declaring he was robbed of the Best New Artist nod.

His protest against Swift, however, was not well received. West stood briefly on the stage after his comments as the crowd was silent. Audience members then began to clap in support of Swift after West left the stage.

According to reports from inside the house, once cameras cut away from the action, West flipped off the crowd and returned to his seat. During the next commercial break, Pink walked by the rapper and appeared to shake her head in disgust before security escorted her away. West remained steadfast amidst the commotion as he kissed his girlfriend Amber Rose.

Kanye West apologizes to Taylor Swift for VMA outburst... sort of

Faster than you can say Joe Wilson, Kanye West has apologized to Taylor Swift for ruining her moment at MTV's Video Music Awards on Sunday.

In case you missed it (and the million or so Tweets and Facebook postings and links to it), early on in the awards, Swift upset both Britney Spears and Beyonce by snaring the best female video award for "You Belong To Me." She had just started a very sweet (does she give any other kind?) acceptance speech when West jumped on stage and said he was going to let her finish her speech, but "Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time." Swift stood there like a deer caught in the headlights-they sure as **** don't act this way at the CMAs-until MTV wisely interrupted and went to commercial.

For the rest of the evening, whenever West's name was mentioned, he was booed. When Beyonce did eventually win, she graciously called Swift on stage to give her acceptance speech, uninterrupted.

West posted his apology on his website, in all caps, just in case we couldn't hear him loudly enough... He apologized, but still got in a few digs at Swift, in our mind, with the line about "I WILL APOLOGIZE TO TAYLOR 2MRW. WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD!!!! EVERYBODY WANNA BOOOOO ME BUT I'M A FAN OF REAL POP CULTURE!!!"

What the **** does that mean?

As you know, West is no stranger to hopping on stage and griping about not winning, but it's usually when he doesn't win-like when he didn't win best new artist at the Grammys several years ago. Below is his apology in full and in caps. (We're taking this from Entertainment Weekly because West's site strangely went down for routine maintenance just minutes after he posted the apology. Thanks EW.com!)

"I'M SOOOOO SORRY TO TAYLOR SWIFT AND HER FANS AND HER MOM. I SPOKE TO HER MOTHER RIGHT AFTER AND SHE SAID THE SAME THING MY MOTHER WOULD'VE SAID. SHE IS VERY TALENTED! I LIKE THE LYRICS ABOUT BEING A CHEERLEADER AND SHE'S IN THE BLEACHERS! ........................ I'M IN THE WRONG FOR GOING ON STAGE AND TAKING AWAY FROM HER MOMENT!................. BEYONCE'S VIDEO WAS THE BEST OF THIS DECADE!!!! I'M SORRY TO MY FANS IF I LET YOU GUYS DOWN!!!! I'M SORRY TO MY FRIENDS AT MTV. I WILL APOLOGIZE TO TAYLOR 2MRW. WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD!!!! EVERYBODY WANNA BOOOOO ME BUT I'M A FAN OF REAL POP CULTURE!!! NO DISRESPECT BUT WE WATCHIN' THE SHOW AT THE CRIB RIGHT NOW CAUSE ... WELL YOU KNOW!!!! I'M STILL HAPPY FOR TAYLOR!!!! BOOOYAAAWWWW!!!! YOU ARE VERY VERY TALENTED!!! I GAVE MY AWARDS TO OUTKAST WHEN THEY DESERVED IT OVER ME... THAT'S WHAT IT IS!!!!!!! I'M NOT CRAZY YALL, I'M JUST REAL. SORRY FOR THAT!!! I REALLY FEEL BAD FOR TAYLOR AND I'M SINCERELY SORRY!!! MUCH RESPECT!!!!!"

So? Is it enough? How do you feel about West's behavior?

That's his so called apology
