I think it's safe to say award shows should increase security when Kanye West is around. A man of many words and even more temper tantrums, Kanye rushed the stage while Taylor Swift accepted the MTV Video Music Award for Best Female video for her single 'You Belong With Me.'

The producer/rapper grabbed the microphone from the 19-year-old to express his discontent with MTV's decision to honor Swift over R&B diva Beyonce. "Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time. Of all time!," Kanye proclaimed as Swift stood on stage seemingly shocked. Beyonce was also visibly confused by the rant.

Swift's video beat out Beyonce's 'Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It),' Lady Gaga's 'Poker Face,' Katy Perry's 'Hot n Cold,' Pink's 'So What' and Kelly Clarkson's 'My Life Would Suck Without You.'

This isn't the first time Kanye has flipped out at an award show. Yeezy stormed the stage at the 2006 MTV Europe Music Awards when he failed to take home Best Video for 'Touch the Sky.'
