The Notoriety of Taylor Swift’s Kanye West VMA Moment

Few events in the glitzy world of pop music have generated as much debate as the notorious Taylor Swift – Kanye West VMA (Video Music Awards) fiasco in 2009.

During the VMAs that year, Taylor had won the award for Best Video by a Female Artist and had just gone on stage to accept the award when an intoxicated Kanye stormed the stage. He then grabbed the mic from Taylor while she was in the middle of her speech and told her, “I’m really happy for you. I’m gonna let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time! One of the best videos of all time!” The moment left Taylor speechless and visibly shaken on stage.

Yet, Taylor has a picture of the infamous incident in her apartment!

Imagine this: a framed picture that immortalizes a moment that brought her such grief in her own home. Well, perspective is everything.

While Taylor has never explained the reasoning behind having the picture in her home, many people believe that she did it to motivate herself to work harder to prove people wrong. The picture stands for tenacity, fortitude, and the ability to triumph against hardship. Taylor has transformed a contentious moment into a message of empowerment by proudly exhibiting it in her house!
