Diddy: 'I don't like it when Kanye interrupts other artists at awards shows'

Music mogul Sean 'Diddy' Combs has had a quiet word with Kanye West about his penchant for interrupting acceptance speeches at awards show, urging him to stop doing it.

The Stronger hitmaker famously ran onstage during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards when Taylor Swift won the award for Best Female video, and declared Drunk in Love hitmaker Beyonce should have walked away with the accolade.


And, at the 2015 Grammy Awards, West rushed the stage when Beck won Album of the Year over Beyonce, but thought better of making a speech.


The two incidents prompted Diddy to have a talk with him.


He says, "I spoke to Kanye, I don't like it... I feel like you have to be real and tell the truth and Kanye is one of my friends and when he did the Beck thing, he was really sorry, but I think what he's saying, that's what he believes and sometimes artists they're very, very vocal.


"I just think that everybody is doing their very best in whatever they're doing and if somebody wins something no matter what, it's their moment."
