Four years after Kanye West interrupted her winning speech at the 2009 VMAs; Taylor Swift is making a dig at him!
The blonde pop star took to her Twitter account today to share her excitement over being nominated for two VMA awards this year. And she made sure to poke fun at the new dad.
Two VMA nominations!! If you vote and get us one, I promise to keep a firmer grip on the mic this time ;) http://t.co/nK9rhV95RP— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) July 17, 2013

At the 2009 awards show, Taylor became the first country music artist to win a VMA when her hit song “You Belong With Me” was named Best Female Video.
Kanye angrily left his seat, went onstage and took the mic from Taylor’s hands, as she was about to give her speech. He explained to the audience that he was mad Beyoncé didn’t win for “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)”

“Yo, Taylor. I’m really happy for you, Imma let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time,” he said during the infamous interruption. “One of the best videos of all-time!”
A shocked Taylor glared on as it all went down. Once he finished, he handed the mic back to her and walked off.
While Kanye, who just welcomed daughter North with Kim Kardashian, did apologize to the now 23-year-old starlet, he admits he was forced to do so.

“You know how people give a backhanded compliment? It was a backhanded apology. It was like, all these raps, all these sonic acrobatics,” he said in a recent interview with the New York Times. “I was like: ‘Let me show you guys what I can do, and please accept me back. You want to have me on your shelves.”
Taylor is up for two awards this year, including Best Female Video for “I Knew You Were Trouble”. She’s up against Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, Pink and Rihanna.
If Kanye's in the audience this year, let’s hope he’s not a super fan of any of her competitors.
