Taylor Swift had no problem mocking her rocky past with Kanye West while presenting him with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the VMAs.
"I first met Kanye West at this show, actually," the 25-year-old said, referring, of course, to that time the rapper interrupted her acceptance speech in 2009.

Before handing the mic over to Yeezy, Tay hilariously paraphrased the 38-year-old's famous words, telling the night's other winners, "I’m really happy for you and I’m gonna let you finish, but Kanye West has had one of the greatest careers of all time!"

What we got next was a very long (and confusing) speech from the father-of-one, who also touched on the TSwift incident.
"First of all, thank you Taylor for being so gracious and giving me this award this evening...I often think back to the first day I met you also," he said, adding, "If I had a daughter at that time, would I have gone on stage and grabbed the mic from someone else’s?"

The "Bound 2" singer also took a lot of drawn-out pauses and fully admitted to "smoking something" before the show.
But the biggest shock came at the end of Kanye's ramble when he confidently exclaimed, "I have, in 2020, decided to run for president!"
Was that the drugs talking? We're not entirely sure. But would you vote for Yeezy in five years?
