Jay-Z pulled a Kanye West on Kanye West himself!
Kanye West got a taste of his own medicine at the BET Awards in the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles last Sunday when he and his friend/collaborator Jay-Z received their Video of the Year award for “Otis.”
After the 43-year-old singer/rapper gave his share of the appreciation speech, he gave the microphone to 35-year-old Kanye, but after he did so, Jay-Z immediately interrupted him, saying:
“Hold on, Kanye, I’m gonna let you finish, but…”
The two artists laughed and hugged. However, it wasn’t this affable back in 2009 at the Video Music Awards when Kanye infamously got on stage as Taylor Swift accepted her Female Video of the Year award. Swift looked shocked as West argued that the award really belonged to Jay-Z’s wife, Beyonce. Kanye jokingly replied to Jay-Z, referring to the past incident:
“I was trying to defend your girl!”
Both Kanye West and Jay-Z were accompanied by their significant others on Sunday’s big night. In the audience, Kim Kardashian, 31, and Beyonce, 30, were both seen offering their applause and support for their men.
