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.”

    man, this dude said sorry but then basically took it all back in more or less words . . . he loss my respect.

  • Carly

    clearly he’s still mocking her. so no, it’s not sincere.

  • tina

    I’ll wait tomorrow when he’s actually sober?

  • Jono

    worst apology, ever.

  • Bubbey

    Kanye can kiss my white ass…

  • Mary beth

    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!!

  • DIana

    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.

  • Hannah

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

  • Rosie

    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!

  • Lydia

    what a fool

    no more kanye west for me.

  • Lauren4

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

  • jenn

    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.

  • nICOLETTE

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

  • Karna

    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!

  • vpg

    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.

  • buck

    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 bitch every time you lose an award and when someone else wins you ruin it for them?
    WEAK

  • w.e

    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!

  • lenscap

    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.

  • mary

    And Kayne, you’re still a douche bag.

  • Lisa

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

  • JoJoMiami

    That was the worst apology I’ve ever heard. I was a fan, but I aint buying anything attached with hos name again!
    His mother must be turning in her grave……hopefully making room for Kanye’s career….cause it’s dead…….boycott Kanye. Sign this petition

  • Lisa

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

  • YAR

    He’s drunk!

  • put him on MUTE

    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.

  • Joe the PLUMBER

    He’s probably on drugs right now!!! Ignorant Ghetto Thugggg!

  • pup

    Wow. That guy’s a tool.

  • http://www.jjceleb.com Megan Fox JJC

    What a douche. I’ve lost all respect for him. I am NEVER listening to his work anymore.

  • Nam

    Clearly he’s being sarcastic when he gives her a contemptuous praise like “I like the lyrics about being a cheerleader and she’s in the bleachers!” Clearly he thinks he’s so smart that we won’t see how condescending he is.

  • mickanese

    so so so not sincere.

  • silentsophi

    He has problems. Even grown men need guidance, sad about the untimely death of his mother. He needs someone to get it through his thick skull that his actions and words have repercussions so filter that crap.

  • amy

    Freak! He embarrassed himself, and dragged Beyonce into this whole mess. The sad thing is that he is getting what he wanted. We are all talking about him now, aren’t we?? I’m never supporting his music again. What a sad person.

  • jamie

    BOGUS BOGUS BOGUS!!!!

    HIS SOOOO STUPID, HE KNOWS HE DIDN’T MEAN IT! AGH I REALLY DON’T LIKE HIM!

  • rpatzfan

    Bogus ,now that everyone hates him ,too late loser

  • ardi

    foooooooooooool

  • OH

    THAT IS NOT AN APOLOGY!
    HE IS STILL MAKING FUN OF HER,
    I WANT TO SEE HIM APOLOGIZE TO HER
    IN PERSON AND ON LIVE TELEVISON!
    AND ON HIS FUK1NG KNEES!

  • Meh

    what a sore loser. his ego is way too fukin huge. some “apology” that was… it was just dissing taylor even more

  • brittany

    hahahaha stupid asshole f*** him!

  • jamie

    @OH:

    oh his knees and bow-wing down to her!!

  • http://beautyofmind.blogg.se Angelina

    complete bogus and he deserves to have all his music cut off from MTV for at least a month!

  • Pink

    what an ass. I hope he is boo’d every time he’s on a live show or happens to win something in the future.. Let him feel what it’s like to be humiliated the way he did it to that poor girl.

  • sophie

    BOGUS!!!!! that is a load of crap. its barely even an apology. god, i hate him so much now. it was her first vma, and he completely RUINED it for her. poor taylor :(

  • notenoughwords

    what an idiot!!!!!!!! “real fan of pop culture” like he owns it. omfg, what the frick is wrong with these egoistical *cursecursecurse* idiots?

  • erin
  • Booplay

    This is exactly what he wants, to be in the news. This moron doesn’t give a a crap about Beyonce either, he’s just once again looking for spotlight, and he got it. What a classless thing to do from a classless man.

  • jenny

    well i forgive him, only because he apologize, people kept saying he needs to and he did, for him, that’s big. so yes. every one makes mistakes, i think he was also drunk, he should feel real bad tomorrow.

  • hahaha

    hahahahaaaa drunkass freak, shut the hell up kanyeeeeeee
    but i was laughing, the little bitch deserved it, she thinks shes so great, lemme tell you, zeroooo talent there

  • ava

    too bad he didn’t autotune the apology, it take a real loser to diss a person who actually sings and writes all her own songs , both him and Beyonce if you took away the computers and digital enhancers, would sound like sh@t.

  • Jaxon

    BOGUS, obviously someone with a brain told him he had crossed a line bigtime and if he wanted any fans left by morning he’d better eat crow. I’m sick of him getting by with this crap, he should be told he is not invited next year as consequences for his tasteless behavior.

    He totally ruined Taylor’s moment. What did she ever do to hiim?

    The best part of the whole night is that he didn’t win a single award. Maybe he’ll learn that people are sick of him in every way.

  • zzzz

    WOW. I knew Kanye was an arrogant, full-of-himself graceless, classless loser, but I didn’t know he was mean , too! And he didn’t apologize at all.
