He shared that he presented the award to his ex-girlfriend for the Best Female Music Video.
However, as the All Too Well singer started her acceptance speech, Kanye West jumped on the stage taking a stand for Beyonce’s Single Ladies. The Abduction star shared that at first, he thought that all of it was planned. He said, “When I presented the award to Taylor and was unaware that the Kanye [West] thing was not a skit.”
