Kanye west MTV VMAs Video Music Awards Taylor Swift 2 news

When Kanye West ruined Taylor Swift's triumphant moment at the MTV Video Music Awards — let's be honest: it wasn't the first time that he acted like a baffoon/ jerk/ brat at a major kudosbash and got away with it. (Read about some other past fiascos here.) But it hasn't hurt Kanye's superstar status, record sales or ability to fill up concert seats.

But maybe this time is different? We got to see the wounded, sweet face of his victim, Taylor Swift, and observe how embarrassed Beyonce rallied to support her. (Relive the details of the tragedy here.)

After voting in our poll below, give us your opinions by responding to these polls too: Do you think Kanye West's apology to Taylor Swift was sincere? and Was Kanye West's MTV VMA tantrum just a PR stunt for his Jay Leno gig?
