In announcing Taylor Swift’s “You Belong With Me” video victory, he said the 33-year-old had won the coveted award. As the Valentine’s Day actress began to speak, West, 45, rushed on stage, interfering with her speech. Lautner and Taylor Swift dated between August and December 2009. Taylor, I’m so happy for you. I’ll let you finish. However, Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” video is one of the best of all time! The Yeezy designer grabbed the microphone and declared it one of the best videos of all time.

In A Recent Podcast, Taylor Lautner Speaks Out About Kanye West’s Fiasco With Taylor Swift At The 2009 VMAs
Taylor Lautner recently recalled Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift on stage during the 2009 MTV VMAs. During a podcast titled The Squeeze, Taylor Dome, Taylor’s wife who also goes by Taylor Lautner, asked the Twilight actor what moment he would love to go back to if he could. According to Eonline, this clip was shared on TikTok on February 1. Immediately replying, Lautner said he would love to relive the 2009 VMAs when he presented the award to Taylor Swift and was unaware that Kanye was not a joke. He recounted further details of the night and said he held the award in his hand as he prepared to present it to the Anti-Hero singer. In the middle of Swift’s thank you speech, he noticed that Kanye had jumped onto the stage before he had given her the award. Since he couldn’t hear or see them, he couldn’t understand much of what was going on.
It’s barely audible to me. I can’t see them, Lautner admitted. I’m just assuming this whole thing was a practised and rehearsed skit, otherwise why would Kanye interrupt Taylor Swift? In the actor’s view, something just didn’t make sense until Swift turned back and he saw her face. After he jumped off, she finished. I saw her face for the first time as she turned back around and I knew it wasn’t right. Oh. No. That wasn’t good he said. Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner dated for a few months in 2009 before parting ways. Since then, they have moved on and dated other people. After being in a relationship with Taylor Dome for four years, Taylor Lautner married her in November. As for Taylor Swift, she has been in a relationship with Joe Alwyn since 2016. They prefer to keep things private.
The way he told this ?, you can see on his face the regret he still has for not understanding right away what was going on and stopping it, Taylor will always be such a wonderful man and I’ll always have a soft spot for him ❤️
