Six years ago her big moment at the MTV VMAs was famously ruined by Kanye West.
And as Taylor Swift strutted back onto the VMAs stage on Sunday night for the ceremony, she couldn’t resist a joke about that stage invasion.
The singer was presenting Kanye with the Video Vanguard award and while she gave the superstar a gushing introduction she also had the crowd, and the man himself, laughing as she reminisced about their previous encounter on the VMAs stage.
Back in 2009, the 38-year-old famously rushed the stage when Taylor accepted her award for Video Of The Year, claiming that his friend Beyonce was a more worthy recipient.
As she told the audience why Kanye was worthy of the 2015 lifetime achievement Moonman on Sunday, Taylor turned the tables by using his famous 2009 line.
‘I’m really happy for you and Imma let you finish, but Kanye had one of the greatest careers of all time,’ she quipped, after explaining: ‘I first met Kanye West six years ago at this show, actually.’

While back, Kanye’s invasion was booed by the audience, this time Taylor got a huge cheer while Kanye was seen laughing along with his wife Kim Kardashian before the two hugged it out on stage.
It took time, but Kanye and the 25-year-old singer have put their differences aside and were even pictured together at the Grammy Awards back in February.
Kanye spoke about the encounter in his speech, and revealed how being a father to his two-year-old daughter North has changed his behaviour.
