Kanye West Booted From VMAs After Swift, Pink Tirade

Kanye West was asked to leave Sunday’s presentation of the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. According to MTV, the “808s & Heartbreak” star was booted shortly after a controversial on stage rant that disrupted the first-ever acceptance speech from country star Taylor Swift — but not before another altercation. MTV sources say West and longtime foe/artist P!nk nearly came face to face after West issued the words “I’m sorry, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time”. Sources say P!nk was so upset that she began to approach the rapper as he returned to his seat amidst “boos” from the audience and was thus escorted away by security. After being asked to leave, West left New York’s Radio City Music Hall. But Pink was not done, she later tweeted about the incident, stating: “Kanye west is the biggest piece of sh*t on earth. Quote me.” “My heart goes out to Taylor Swift. She is a sweet and talented girl and deserved her moment. She should know we all love her,” Pink went on to say.
