In a recent interview, former MTV boss Van Toffler was asked for his favorite “VMA” story, and he chose the infamous night Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech to tell everybody that Beyoncé should have won.
And as old and tired as that story is, he had something to add to it: Beyoncé was just as upset as Taylor.
“Taylor had to go onstage to do her song five minutes later. I ran out of the truck to see that everything was all right, and Taylor and her mom were crying hysterically.
“I’m not always wonderful with emotions. I didn’t know what to say. Then I went backstage, and Beyoncé was crying, too.”
