However, Knowles let Swift have her moment when she won 'Video of the Year" award at the MTV Video Music Awards. She asked Swift to join her on stage and said, "I remember being 17-years old, up for my first MTV award for Destiny's Child and it was one of the most exciting moments of my life. So I would like for Taylor to come out and have her moment," she added.
