Former DESTINY'S CHILD singers Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams have 'tweeted' to describe their disgust at Kanye West's on-stage protest against country star Taylor Swift at Sunday's (13Sep09) MTV Video Music Awards.
The rapper stunned the star-studded crowd when he stormed the stage as gracious Swift was thanking fans for voting her as the Best Female Video award winner - her first ever MTV VMA trophy.
West told the crowd how he believed fellow nominee Beyonce was the true winner, grabbing the mic from Swift and shouting, "Taylor, I'm really happy for you, I'm gonna let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time."
His protest was greeted by jeers and boos from the Radio City Music Hall crowd as a mortified Beyonce looked on from the audience and a speechless Swift held back tears while fans started chanting her name in support.
And it wasn't only revellers at the New York event who were left incensed by the bizarre behaviour - Beyonce's former bandmates have taken to the internet to slam the star's actions.
On her page, Rowland says, "And I know B is SO gracious, she was TRULY happy for Taylor!!!! Taylor that was your moment, don't let ANYONE, I don't give a F who they are. I LOVE Kanye and I LOVE TAYLOR, and OF COARSE I LOVE B(sic)!! But NO ONE should have a moment taken away from them....NO ONE!!! It's room for everyone........KANYE...WHY BOO???
"My heart goes out to taylor swift. She is a sweet and talented girl and deserved her moment. She should know we all love her."
While, Williams quipped, "OMG (oh my God) Kanyeeeee nooooooooo!"
However, stars at the event used their blogs to blast the rapper with more severity, with Pink snarling, "Kanye West is the biggest piece of s**t on earth. Quote me."
West was reportedly asked to leave the ceremony by MTV organisers following the outburst.
