Kanye West...what a jerk!!!!!

I feel really bad for Taylor Swift but later Beyonce did allow Taylor to say her thank-you speech.

I feel awful for poor Taylor Swift and applaud Beyonce's reaction.
This isn't his first stunt, and it won't be the last. As despicable as what he did was, he is the master of self-promotion -- look at how much air time this has gotten him....even negative press is good press for him.

What a PRICK!!!! I can't even imagine how embarrassing that was for poor Taylor. Ugh, somebody needs to beat that crap out of that guy......or maybe maroon him on a very lonely island where he can be as self important as he wants to be and we don't have to listen to his stupid ass. Good on Beyonce giving Taylor her time on stage.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Idiot. Absolute idiot. How dare he? You just don't DO that!

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

I totally agree that Kanye was way out of line and being an absolute jerk to do that to Taylor. She deserved her time in the lime light and she deserved that award then he just squashed it for her. The look on her face was so sad...
I took my daughter to see Taylors concert just a few weeks ago and she was awesome..at one point the crowd cheered for so long that Taylor was speechless w/tears running down her cheeks. She puts a lot of emotion into her songs/performances/videos and Kayne was just plain rude!
Beyonce did show a lot of class to share the stage with Taylor after all that!

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

I watched that on the news this morning and just couldnt believe someone could be so rude. It's disgusting.. and as a huge Taylor fan I felt so sorry for her. I applaud Beyonce for what she did, it was a lovely gesture, but something that should never have had to be done in the first place.

Taylor played at at Wefest (a weekend of country music in MN) a couple years ago and a young girl from my hometown was this HUGE fan. Anyways somehow Taylor found out about this and invited the young girl and the girls dad onto her tour bus and gave her autographs, a pair of her boots, and about 15 minutes of her time. That meant sooo much for this family. Taylor is truly class act and a great role model.

Kanye needs a good kick in the man parts and should not allowed to even get close to any spotlight.

Holy ****... I hate Taylor swift, but I would have totally slapped him for her... Wtf? This guy is a great deal older than she is, where is his respect and manners? I do, however, think she handled it very well. It broke my heart the way she just staired like "What?" ...

Poor girl.
