Taylor Swift was defended by Eminem in the August issue of music publication, Spin, nearly a year after Kanye West interrupted her acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. “He shouldn’t have done that, man,” Eminem told Spin. “I mean, she’s a little girl.” Swift was accepting her award for best female video award when West rushed the stage and declared, “Yo, Taylor, I’m really happy for you, I’ll let you finish, but Beyoncé has one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!” When Beyoncé won the video of the year award later in the night, she invited Swift to finish the speech. The issue hits newsstands Monday (July 26).
