Taylor Swift, Kanye West, Beyonce, and the VMAs Full Story

In this video from the 2009 VMAs rapper/producer Kanye West interrupts Taylor Swifts acceptance speech for the best female music video to announce that Beyonces video should have won.


This was Swifts first VMA win and she was clearly upset and confused by Wests interruption. When Beyonce wins the VMA for best video of the year she asks Swift to come out and give her acceptance speech. How does Beyonce show empathy and altruistic empathy? Was Kanye attempting egoistic helping?
