With his controversial comments, the 32-year-old rapper Kanye West continues to make a name for himself. "I'll always push the envelope, try to get a rise out of people, and try to entertain them too," West once told Time Out London magazine.
The rapper's latest outburst occurred during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards when he stormed onstage as country singer Taylor Swift accepted her Best Female Video award.
West took the mic from 17-year-old Swift, shouting, "Yo Taylor, I'm really happy for you, I'll let you finish, but Beyonce has one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!"
He then shrugged and walked offstage, leaving a stunned Beyonce, a booing audience and a speechless and visibly emotional Swift on stage.
