"I'm so sorry to Taylor Swift and her fans and her mom," Kanye wrote.

"I spoke to her mother right after and she said the same thing my mother would've said...I'm in the wrong for going on stage and taking away from her moment!"

Not to worry for Taylor, she got a second shot at her big moment. When Beyonce went on stage to claim her prize for Video of the Year, she recalled her first experience at the VMA's, at 17.


"It was one of the most exciting moments in my life, so I'd like for Taylor to come out and have her moment."

Knowles gave swift a second chance at a speech, her gracious move bringing down the house.

Celebs reacted via Twitter throughout the award show, none too pleased with West's antics.

"F*** you Kanye. It's like you stepped on a kitten," Katy Perry wrote.

"Kanye West is the biggest piece of s*** on earth. Quote Me," singer Pink wrote.
