It was the moment that spawned a thousand memes and transformed Kanye West from “that rapper” into “that a$$hole that interrupted Taylor Swift.“ Now, the baby daddy of Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kim Kardashian is opening up about how he dealt with the aftermath of crashing Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, and you won’t believe how he overcame it.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kim Kardashian’s man recently sat down with Interview, where he discussed a variety of topics, including his infamous bum-rush of Taylor Swift four years ago. When asked how he got through all the criticism he faced afterward, he put it rather simply. “God, sex, and alcohol… a lot of sex,” he told the magazine.And now all I can think of is that game “one of these things is not like the others.”
I’m sure you don’t need a reminder of the incident in question, because it is probably one of the greatest things to ever happen on live TV. I’ll remind you anyway, though. Right in the middle of Taylor’s acceptance speech for Best Female Video, Yeezy charged the stage in a drunken haze, telling TayTay, “Yo Taylor, I’m really happy for you, I’ma let you finish, but…..” and then telling her that Beyonce should have won. Truly, it was an epic moment in the history of television, and the resulting memes are nothing short of hilarious.
Do you think the interviewer had to resist the urge to interrupt Kanye in his answer and say, “Yo Kanye, I’ma let you finish, but first let’s talk about how Jay-Z makes more money than you,” or something like that? Picturing that moment really happening just made my day a whole lot better.
So what do you think about Kanye West’s coping mechanisms after the Taylor Swift scandal? Tell us in the comments!
