Don't expect a duet between Kanye West and Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Jesse Ignjatovic, the executive producer of Sunday's show, flatly declared there's no chance of the pair reuniting in song a year after West interrupted Swift's acceptance speech for best female video to proclaim that Beyonce should have won the prize instead. Ignjatovic hopes that West, who's slated to perform, won't be interrupting anyone this time.
The outspoken rapper took to his Twitter account last week to again apologize for last year's on-air fiasco, acknowledging that he was wrong for lunging on stage and grabbing the microphone away from Swift, who's again nominated for best female video but isn't confirmed to attend this year's show.
