Taylor Swift References Awkward Kanye West VMA Incident on Twitter
Taylor Swift can’t let it go. The singer has admitted to keeping a framed photo of rapper Kanye West crashing her 2009 VMAs acceptance speech — he though Beyonce had a better video — in her home for inspiration. She also took aim at Yeezy when acknowledging her latest VMA noms.
Swift tweeted her joy at receiving two VMA noms for ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ and didn’t snooze on the opp to stick it to ‘Ye.
Her tweet is below:
Two VMA nominations!! If you vote and get us one, I promise to keep a firmer grip on the mic this time http://t.co/nK9rhV95RP

Remember, Ye jacked the mic from Swift, while she stood there all shocked, and said, “I’ma let you finish…” but that didn’t matter. The moment was ruined, even prompting President Obama to liken ‘Ye to a donkey. Relive it again in the photo above.
Something tells us that T. Swizzle didn’t send a baby gift to North.
You know, can we point out that the incident took place in 2009? That’s – count ‘em —FOUR years ago. Why is this still a hot topic? We know that Yeezy recently said that his apology to Swift for snatching the mic from her hand and ruining her big moment was false and not sincere.
The entire free world knows that what he did was rude. But these two need to either let it die or do a duet together.
