OK, one question for Taylor Swift fans...

As I write this, the tubes are exploding over Kanye West's unsolicited (or possibly arranged) interruption of Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the VMA Music Awards. PopEater:

When Taylor Swift won Best Female Video for 'You Belong With Me,' Kanye jumped onstage, grabbed the mike from the country singer's hands and did what he does best.

"Yo Taylor, I'm really happy for you, I'm a [sic] let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time," he yelled, to many boos. Swift had beat Beyonce's 'Single Ladies' for the award.

But I have a question for Taylor Swift fans. When is Taylor Swift gonna remix a Daft Punk song like that other guy did?

Truthfully, the musical introduction to this live version of Kanye West's "Stronger," recorded live at the 2007 V-FEST Concert, is impressive. Here's BBC's review of West's appearance:

Mud wrestling, commercial overload, over-priced fast food, diverse acts, persistent downpours and the not-so-sweet smell of portaloos... it can only be the annual return of the V Festival at Weston Park in Staffordshire....

Rap superstar Kanye West made a predictable late entrance but soon had the crowd in the palm of his hand. However, the bass was so loud it drowned West’s beautiful string septet who played as his backing band. Jesus Walks, Gold Digger, Touch the Sky and current chart success Stronger received huge roars.

By the way, I previously talked about the song "Stronger" in an October 2008 post. That's when I shared the 30 Seconds to Mars version of the song.
