Fans want Taylor Swift to present Kanye West with his award at the MTV VMAs

Los Angeles - Fans want Taylor Swift to present Kanye West with his award at the VMAs.

MTV have announced the rapper will receive the iconic Video Vanguard Award at Sunday's ceremony and numerous Twitter users are hoping the Shake It Off hitmaker will give him the award, six years after he famously interrupted her acceptance speech for the Best Female Video accolade at the event to insist Beyoncé should have won it.

One user, @ODedOnRealityTV, wrote: "@taylorswift13 needs to present Kanye's Vanguard Award or else I'm sad (sic)."

Another, @crazymusicfacts, added: "Kanye is going to receive the Video Vanguard Award? Will @taylorswift13 interrupt him? Or will she present it to him? #Swifties (sic)."

The incident at the 2009 ceremony proved to be a major controversy with President Barack Obama even branding the 38-year-old rapper a "jackass" following the stunt.

But while some people have suggested Taylor, 25, could prove she's over the spat by giving him the award, others have suggested she gives him a taste of his own medicine by staging her own interruption.

One man, Rik Anthony, tweeted: "MTV to Award Kanye West the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award on Sunday. I think Taylor Swift needs to interrupt his getting the award."

Charlie Piper echoed the proposal, writing: "Kanye West is getting the MTV Video Vanguard Award. Ooooh, Taylor Swift - this is the moment you've trained for!! (sic)"

And Eymar Antigua added: "Am I the only one who hopes that @taylorswift13 runs up on the stage when @kanyewest receives his MTV award and says "Ima let you finish" (sic)."

The MTV Video Music Awards will air live across Africa on MTV (DStv channel 130) from the Microsoft Theatre (formerly Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE) in Los Angeles, on Monday 31 August at 03:00, with the official pre-show starting at 02:00.

The primetime simulcast will be taking place on MTV/MTV Base at 20:00 (pre-show) and 21:00 (main show). publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
