It's here people! Someone just pulled a Kanye! But this time, it didn't go too well!
People's Choice Awards 2016 were held on 6 January 2015 and unlike it's previous editions, this year, the show has given us a lot to talk about. From Dakota Johnson's wardrobe malfunction to Sharon Osbourne and her gang getting Kany-ed! For those of you who do not know, Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift's speech at the 2009 Video Music Awards, a move that earned him a lot of criticism, President Barack Obama calling him a "Jackass" and universal hatred that followed.
Sharon Osbourne and her co-hosts were going on the stage to accept the award for the Favourite Daytime TV Hosting Team. Their talk show "The Talk" won the award beating tough competitors like "The View" and "Good Morning America".
All was going well till an imposter, (a metaphorical Kanye), ran up on stage and interrupted their speech. The ladies tried to take the mike away, in what seemed like a violent confrontation. Sharon Osbourne was quick to react and amidst all the confusion, kicked the Imposter in the leg TWICE!
But hey! That's not all! Things got uglier when one of the winners Sheryl Samberg threw shade on Steve Harvey, criticising him for his Miss Universe fail! Yikes! Not only was her reference incorrect, (for it was Kanye, not Steve Harvey who snatched the mike from Taylor at 2009 VMA), it was totally uncalled for. Check out what happened:
But the ladies did not give in to the bully! Sheryl tried to snatch the mircophone.
Controversy was fueled when Sheryl Samberg said "'You ain't gonna pull no Steve Harvey up in here!" Yikes! Sheryl, it was Kanye who pulled a Kanye, not Steve!
"Taylor, Imma Let you finish but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time!" were the words that earned Kanye West the title of "Douchebag" from the rest of the world when he ruined Taylor's moment. The two however, have buried the hatchet and are on good terms.
The group finished their speech with one of their members casually retorting "That guy is not in our club!"
When asked about the incident, the members laughed it off with Sharon Osbourne saying: "We are a family! You don't mess with us"! Great Job Girls! Dear Imposter, better luck next time!
