    Kanye West's interruption of Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for Best Female Video at the 2009 VMAs is one of the most infamous moments in modern music history. However, Kanye says there's a very good reason for it.

    Kanye was protesting the decision to award Taylor the win for her music video for You Belong With Me, saying Beyoncé deserved it instead for her video for Single Ladies.

    Speaking to Nick Cannon, Kanye says that God was giving him information, and that if God didn't want him to interrupt, then it wouldn't have happened.

    Kanye says, “Right now, God is giving me the information. If God ain’t want me to run on stage and say Beyoncé had the best video, he wouldn’t have sat me in the front row. I would’ve been sitting in the back.

    “It wouldn’t have made it so ridiculous of an idea because I had never heard of this person [Taylor] before, and Single Ladies is, like, one of the greatest videos of all time. And I was only drinking Hennessy because I didn’t want to go to the awards show because it was a set-up.”

    Honestly, we think Kanye needs to give it a rest at this point. It's been over a decade since he interrupted one of Taylor's biggest moments - and it's about time he accepted he was in the wrong.

    Meanwhile it's come full circle for Taylor, as she took home the Best Direction Award at this year's VMAs for the self-directed video for The Man, becoming the first solo female artist to win the award.
