[artist id="1230523"]Kanye West[/artist] — who had been absent from the stage since he interrupted [artist id="2389485"]Taylor Swift[/artist]‘s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards — made a surprise appearance at [artist id="1236911"]Beyoncé[/artist]‘s concert in London on Saturday night. The woman he interrupted Swift to shout out (to her dismay) called upon ‘Ye to be her special guest at her concert at the O2 Arena. Footage has emerged on the Internet of the cameo, where Kanye rapped his verse from the “Ego” remix.
“I got a big, hah-uh-ha, ego,” Kanye rapped. “She love my big, hah-uh-ha, ego/ So stroke my big, hah-uh-ha, ego/ I like to joke around a little bit but here we go/ Welcome to the wonderful world of gold-plated earl/ ‘Cause everything I throw up, blow up.”
If there was any backlash remaining from the VMA incident, the crowd didn’t let it show: When ‘Ye touched the stage, the crowd can be heard screaming with excitement. According to NME.com, Beyoncé also brought out Jay-Z during her set for “Crazy in Love.”
There’s more from Kanye coming this week — new music! West appears on the remix of his G.O.O.D. Music artist Consequence’s remix for “Whatever U Want.” The track features Kanye and John Legend (who were also on the original) as well as Common, Kid Cudi and Big Sean.
In related Beyoncé news, her video for “Video Phone,” featuring Lady Gaga, will premiere on MTV.com tonight at midnight.
