(Newser) – Crazed hip-hopper Kanye West stormed the stage last night during Taylor Swift's speech accepting her MTV award for Best Female Video to plug Beyoncé's video. Giddy country-music sweetheart Swift was mid-sentence when West, spotted earlier swigging cognac, yanked the mike from her to rant to a stunned audience. West was escorted from the building. Beyoncé, who won the award for Best Music Video at the end of the program, invited Swift on stage with her, saying: "I would like Taylor to come and have her moment."

West later apologized for his bizarre intrusion on his blog, writing: "I'm sooooo sorry to Taylor Swift and her fans and her mom." Swift said after the program in New York: "I was excited to be onstage because I just won the award. And then I was excited that Kanye West was onstage. Then, I wasn't excited anymore."

Too much bolivian marching powder and a messianic complex will do that to you!
