During a recent interview with Nick Cannon’s “Cannon’s Class”, Kanye West revealed that he felt called by God to interrupt Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech to declare Beyonce’s video for “Single Ladies” the “best of all time.”
Right now, God is giving me the information. If God ain’t want me to run on stage and say Beyonce had the best video, he wouldn’t have sat me in the front row. I woulda been sitting in the back. They wouldn’t have made it the first award and it wouldn’t have made it so ridiculous of an idea because I would have heard of this person before then. And ‘Single Ladies’ is one of the greatest videos of all time.Kanye West
Kanye didn’t mention Taylor Swift during the conversation, but he did describe going on the VMAs stage to denounce that Beyonce did not receive the award for “Best Female Video.” which was won by Swift.
Ye also claims that he was drinking Hennessy cognac during the show because he was reluctant about attending the event in the first place.
I was only drinking Hennessy because I didn’t want to go to the awards show because it was a setup.Kanye West
