Kanye West: Apology to Taylor Swift

Kanye West: Apology to Taylor Swift

Earlier in the night, Kanye West ran up onto the stage while Taylor Swift was accepting her award for the “Best Female Video”, grabbed the mic and shouted out, “Yo Taylor. I’m really happy for you. I’m gonna let you finish but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!” Taylor was left speechless and the cameras cut away.

Kanye just posted an apology to Taylor on his blog, which was written in all caps:

“I’m sooooo sorry to Taylor Swift and her fans and her mom [Andrea]. I spoke to her mother right after and she said the same thing my mother would’ve said. She is very talented! I like the lyrics about being a cheerleader and she’s in the bleachers! …………………… I’m in the wrong for going on stage and taking away from her moment!…………….. Beyonce‘s video was the best of this decade!!! I’m sorry to my fans if I let you guys down!!!!! I’m sorry to my friends at MTV. I will apologize to Taylor 2mrw. Welcome to the real world!!!! Everybody wanna booooo me but I’m a fan of real pop culture!!! No disrespect but we watchin’ the show at the cribe right now cause…. Well you know!!!! I’m still happy for Taylor!!!! Boooyaawww!!!! You are very talented!!!!! I gave my awards to Outkast when they deserved it over me… That’s what it is!!!! I’m not crazy yall, I’m just real. Sorry for that!!! I really feel bad for Taylor and I’m sincerely sorry!!! Much Respect!!!!!”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Kanye’s apology – SINCERE or BOGUS?

UPDATE: Kanye deleted this apology and put up this one: “I feel like Ben Stiller in “Meet the Parents” when he messed up everything and Robert De Niro asked him to leave… That was Taylor‘s moment and I had no right in any way to take it from her. I am truly sorry.”

BOGUS!! He’s trying to cover his ass and his apology is still somewhat rude and not sincere at all this guy is a JOKE!!

# 7

he is sooo stupid!

“I gave my awards to Outkast when they deserved it over me… That’s what it is!!!!”

WTF!

So he was expecting Taylor to praise Beyonce and give her award away? Are you kidding me?! I HATE HIM.

# 8

Wow. Just because you apologized, that doesn’t excuse the behavior in the first place. Real classy Kayne.

Give us a break you douche bag!!! Gosh, now he thinks that this is an proper apology. I mean Beyonce’s vid is one of the best vids I’ve even seen but then even B herself would never want all these things to happen. She’s a classy lady, my role model.

I also love Taylor. I can totally relate to her songs. I felt sorry for her and hope that she’ll be ok after all. She’s a strong girl and she’ll get over this.

Again, words HURT you moron Kayne. I couldnt say his name properly. Thought I was about to vomit or something!

what a fool

no more kanye west for me.

Kanye just wanted the attention..He definately acted like a child..

that is not sincere at all he was probably told to do that and he was drunk when he went up on stage and was still drunk wjen writing that “apology” he needs to stfu cause he is a rude and disrespectful person.

IM DISGUSTED AT HIM
i used to like him so much
now i hate him

He’s a total IDIOT! And a drunk one at that! If I was Taylor, I would so tell him to F*^% OFF! But that is not her style…she’ll probably accept his apology because that is just how GREAT she is!

Kanye’s response is neither sincere, nor bogus.

He is scared shitless.

The moment he left that stage was the moment he learned real quick that his career would be in free fall if he didn’t IMMEDIATELY fall on his sword — and he will need to KEEP FALLING for quite some time.

just stop kanye… stop
you ruined what was an amazing night for taylor, how would you have felt if they did that to you? you ***** every time you lose an award and when someone else wins you ruin it for them?
WEAK

What a disgrace some people are to society. SERIOUSLY!! Do they really think a lame apology is going to cut it?? Reminds me of when Jamie Foxx apologized to Miley. What’s said is said, and what’s said is done! Please take that apology and Kanye and stick it up your A$$. Nobody cares. Thanks!

It is a severe insult to douchebags to call him one – he is below the douchebag level. He is probably also on drugs to pull such a stunt on an innocent 19 year old girl. God he is retaarded.

And Kayne, you’re still a douche bag.

What a douche!!!! THAT is Not and apology

I actually was shocked that Taylor got the award, and thought either Beyonce or Lady G should have won, but WTF does Kanye West have to do w/any of this? The guys is a wack egomaniac who thinks everything is always about him.
