>>> is just so good.

>>> this morning, music fans are criticizing singer kanye west after he interrupted taylor swift 's acceptance speech for best female video at the video music awards last night.

>> thank you so much for giving me a chance to win a vma award.

>> yo, taylor -- i'm really happy for you, i'm going to let you finish, but beyonce had one of the best videos of all time!

>> kanye received loud boos from the audience and later when beyonce accepted her award for video of the year, she gave taylor swift her due time .

>> i'd like for taylor to come out and have her moment kanye southwest has since apologized for the incident on his blog. something tells me apology not enough there. it is 7:13. back over to matt, ann and al. somebody who probably is grateful to kanye . maybe to serena for taking the spotlight off of her for her angry outburst.

>> meantime, a shout out to kim clijsters . she's the first mom to win since 1980 . isn't that something?

>> back to the vma thing, it is like you saw no class and class in the same two pieces of tape there. i think kanye needs to seriously consider his place in the universe here.

>>> anyway, mr. roker --
