Kanye West apologizes to Taylor Swift in 140 character bursts
Posted by Sarah Anne Hughes
Over the Labor Day weekend a miracle occurred: Kanye West apologized. The famously arrogant rapper poured his damaged heart out via Twitter to apologize to Taylor Swift for his behavior at the 2009 MTV Music Video Awards. As Swift was onstage accepting an award for Best Female Video, West grabbed the trophy from her hand and uttered the now infamous phrase, "Imma let you finish." Now less than a week before the 2010 VMAs, West spewed out a boatload of Tweets -- "These aren't regular tweets... this is stream of consciousness" -- that covered every emotion possible.
At first he was defensive:
Man I love Twitter... I've always been at the mercy of the press but no more... The media tried to demonize me
Then he gave us an explanation:
With the help of strong will, a lack of impathy, a lil alcohol and extremely distasteful & bad timing ... I became George Bush over night
And wanted us to see he paid:
How deep is the scar... I bled hard.. cancelled tour with the number one pop star in the world ... closed the doors of my clothing office
He wants the world to know he's making up for his crimes:
I wrote a song for Taylor Swift that's so beautiful and I want her to have it. If she won't take it then I'll perform it for her
Was this whole thing a conspiracy?
WHO BENEFITED FOR REAL PEOPLE???!!!!!!!!
But really he just wanted to say this:
I'm sorry Taylor.
Swift has yet to comment, but really -- how could she not accept an apology like this? This year's VMAs host Chelsea Handler has talked about wanting to reunite the two. Is this the first step? Do you buy his apology or do you think it was all a big publicity stunt? Tell us in the comments section.
