P!nk stood up for Taylor Swift.
We all know about that infamous moment when Kanye “I’mma let you finish” West crashed the stage during Swift’s acceptance speech of best female video for “You Belong With Me.” It took the world of music by storm, but one person who immediately rained down their wrath was singer P!nk.
Billboard published a lengthy article about the controversial moment, and included bits of information we weren’t previously privy to.
One former MTV writer claimed P!nk gave him the middle finger.
Another had this to say:
“The crowd in Radio City just turned on [Kanye] — people were booing and hissing. During the commercial break, he went back down to his seat and P!nk walked up to him and got in his face. I wasn’t close enough to hear the conversation, but she was pointing in his face and nodding her head back and forth, and giving him her two cents about how f—-d up this was and then stormed off. Then he was sitting there next to Amber Rose with his arm around her, and you could feel everyone in Radio City glaring at his back.”
“Yeah that’s true and it’s something I’m very excited about. My contract says starting from November 2020 I can start re-recording albums 1-5. I think artists deserve to own their own work. It’s next year, I’m gonna be busy.” — Taylor on re-recording her music #TaylorSwiftOnGMA pic.twitter.com/W9e1kRN8Hb— Taylor Swift News (@TSwiftNZ) August 22, 2019
It’s worth reminding you that P!nk Tweeted this out that same night:
