We hate to beat a dead horse, but the infamous “Imma let you finish” moment is a pop culture moment that will go down in history. Need we remind you? Way back in 2009, Taylor Swift won the Best Female Video award at the VMAs. Her acceptance speech was interrupted when Kanye took the mic. The feud between them has continued on and off ever since. Let’s rewind back to that fateful night.

First of all, here’s what we all saw.

Taylor had just begun her acceptance speech when Kanye took the mic.

BTW, the VMAs agreed with Kanye, because Beyonce took home the Video of the Year award for “Single Ladies” later that night.

Now, what happened backstage.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, former MTV Chief Van Toffler finally revealed what took place backstage after the interruption heard around the world.

Beyonce? Tears? What?

Yep, as it turns out, the Queen was also emotionally affected by Kanye’s stunt. We don’t blame her. It was a memorable night for all of us – after all, it’s still making headlines eight years later!
