The video clip of Beyonce “Single Ladies” is chosen best video at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Taylor Swift received the award for best female video. To the great frustration of Kanye West, who climbed on stage and announced that Beyonce should also have had that price.
Beyonce was ashamed of herself about Kanye West and later made up by inviting Taylor Swift on stage when they held a speech. “Enjoy your moment” she told to Taylor Swift.
It was the 26th time the MTV Awards were handed out. The show was also notable for several tributes to late pop star Michael Jackson. Janet Jackson led a tribute to her late brother by performing the dance moves from the video Scream as footage played on a screen above her.
