Amber Rose has some experience when it comes to attending award shows with Kanye West. Rose and West were dating during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards that saw West cradling a bottle of Hennessy Cognac while on the red carpet. During a recent interview with Hot 97, Rose explained how the bottle played a part in MTV VMA history.
‘Oh my God; me an Kanye used to have so much fun together,’ Rose said. ‘We had so much fun that night. We drank a lot of Henny that night. I remember we got in the car, and I was like, ‘Yo, we should get that bottle of Henny upstairs. He ran up and got it, and he brought it in the car. We were just swigging in the car on the way to the VMAs.’
Rose added West instantly felt bad after infamously interrupting Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech to protest on behalf of Beyonce. She called it a fun night and said West didn’t mean to go on stage.
At this year’s GRAMMY Awards, West poked fun of the 2009 interruption by motioning as if he were going to interrupt Beck’s Album of the Year nomination before getting back in his seat. While there was no Taylor Swift-style interruption, West again protested on behalf of Beyonce, saying Beck should return his award.
