Kanye West apologizes to Taylor Swift via Twitter!

Kanye West apologizes to Taylor Swift via Twitter!
September 4, 2010 MICHAEL KNUDSEN


Hey hey! It’s been almost a whole year since Kanye West ran on stage at the MTV Music Awards while Taylor Swift was accepting her award for ‘Best Female Video’ which ended up causing a huge controversy. He definitely shouldn’t have interrupted her moment (She shouldn’t have won but that’s another story) He did eventually apologize but the situation is still obviously weighing heavily on him … late last night he took to Twitter – 72 tweets later – he ended his ‘stream of consciousness’ with the words I’m sorry Taylor. You can read all his tweets below – start from the bottom! I do think he’s sincere and it’s time to move on – I’m super excited for his upcoming new album – no matter what you might think about Kanye – there’s no denying how talented he truly is – I’m a fan for life! Popbytes over and out … xoxo!


PS Kanye only follows two people on Twitter: Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber!



I’m sorry Taylor.


It starts with this…


I want to win there hearts back so I can continue to bring my take on culture to the masses with a clean opinion.


I want to help starting with the music and ending with the smile.


I wish they could accept that I’ve grown and only want to do good for the world. I want to help as many people as I can.


I wish they all knew how much I really cared about music and pop culture and art and peoples feelings.


I wish I could talk to every hater face to face and change there a opinion of me one conversation at a time.


I’ve hurt, I’ve bled, I’ve learned. I only want to do good. I am passionate I am human I am real. I wish I could meet every hater


When I right songs like Heartless I always say “is this melody good enough to be a country song or a broadway song?”


TAYLOR LOVES RAP MUSIC… I LOVE COUNTRY MUSIC


Why was it made into such a race issue. Taylor loves rap music… I love country music.


There’s a layer of… Entertainment… we are entertainers and this is only TV… not the War


There’s a layer of… hey Kanye said what I was thinking


A year later where do we stand?


WHO BENEFITED FOR REAL PEOPLE???!!!!!!!!


Walk with me people… let’s break this down for real now. I might get in trouble again lol?


MTV? JAY LENO? BEYONCE? ALL FORMS OF MEDIA? TAYLOR? KANYE WEST? Who gained? Who lost?


You’ve got the Media play… Who benefitted off of the moment?


You’ve got a layer of… What is reality? You really want this guy to die over an award show???!! wooooooow …..


You’ve got a layer of order… this is how things are spose to go this is how it’s always been etc.


If I speak in 3rd person it’s because I’m quoting people sometimes I forget to put the quotations you know my grammar.. #ITSAPROCESS


You’ve got the top layer… Kanye’s rude!


Why are there so many tweets? Well this isn’t a simple subject. There are layers to this beyond me running on stage.


Humanity and Empathy are 2 of the 4 principles at facebook. Those were the 2 principles I was missing on that evening


These tweets have no manager, no publicist , no grammar checking… this is raw


It feels like the movie Heat when you wanted Deniro to make it… You want the bad guy to make it.


These aren’t regular tweets… this is stream of consciousness … I want you guys to know and feel where my head is at…


Beyonce didn’t need that. MTV didn’t need that and Taylor and her family friends and fans definitely didn’t want or need that.


I am not a bad person. Even in that moment I was only trying to do good but people don’t always need my help.


When I woke up from the crazy nightmare I looked in the mirror and said GROW UP KANYE … I take the responsibility for my actions


Yes I was that guy. A 32 year old child.


It is distasteful to cut people off as a general rule. What’s the point of dressing tastefully if I’m going to act the complete opposite?


With new found humility … who am I to run on stage? I would never ever again in a million years do that. Sorry to let you down.


The Wicked witch of the west basically is so convicted to tell her’ truth when she does it she is outcasted by society and turned WICKED


Who’s seen the play Wicked? I’ve seen it 4 times! Other than loving the music acting and costumes… it’s my story!!!


I have given my awards to other groups multiple times on national TV… They never showed that this past year during the massacre of Kanye


It’s not about race America. No one in our position ever stands up and says anything anymore.


I would have ran on stage for Justin that night because Sexy Back (in my mind) was that important… that impactful to our culture


I watched Justin Timberlake at the Grammies loose every televised award including album of the year which the Dixie Chicks won


I am responsible for those who love and represent me and what they have to deal with on a day to day defending “The American Psycho”


There are people who have named there kids after me… can you imagine that next day in school. Even though I don’t have kids…


I know there are family members friends and fans that have literally fought for me.


I’m ready to get out of my own way. The ego is overdone… it’s like hoodies


We’re both artist and the media and managers are trying to get between us. Everyone wants to capitalize off this is some way


She deserves the apology more than anyone. Thank you Biz Stone and Evan Williams for creating a platform where we can communicate directly


She had nothing to do with my issues with award shows. She had no idea what hit her. She’s justa lil girl with dreams like the rest of us.


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


I wear my scars… It’s almost like I have to where a suit to juxtapose my image and I won’t lie… IT WORKS!


People tweeted that they wish I was dead… No listen. They wanted me to die people. I carry that. I smile and take pictures through that


I’m the guy who at one point could perform the Justin Timberlake on stage and everyone would be sooo happy that I was there


…taking a 15 second blip the mdeia have successfully painted the image of the “ANGRY BLACK MAN’ The King Kong theory.


The media has successfully diminished the “receptive” audience of (3rd person)… KANYE WEST


I have a mission in life to bring truth and beauty through my music and the visuals that anchor around it


Some people say… Why worry about “the haters?” This is bigger that just the concept of haters.


If you google Asshole my face may very well pop up 2 pages into the search.


That’s when you realize perception is reality. I’ve been straying from this subject on twitter but I have to give it to you guys raw now.


I was chilling with this white girl having a conversation and she cut me off and said… Hold up… I thought you didn’t like us?!


There are people who don’t dislike me… they absolutely hate me!


Remember in Anchor Man when Ron Burgandy cursed on air and the entire city turned on him? But this wasn’t a joke. This was & is my real life


People booed when I would go to concerts and the performer mentioned my name.


Had to let employees go… for the first time I felt the impact of my brash actions … I felt the recession from an ownership side


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


With the help of strong will, a lack of impathy, a lil alcohol and extremely distasteful & bad timing … I became George Bush over night


Even though the NBC telethon was widely praised yall didn’t think they was just gone let me get away with that did yall???!!!


Some people’s truth is Kanye is racist… It’s not my truth but I do believe it’s my Karma…. walk with me…


When I say perception is reality I mean whatever you think is the truth… is your truth


I accept the idea (ideal) that perception is reality


Happy B day to sister B … I gotta dope ass gift for you.


Even now a lot of articles start there first 2 paragraphs about how much of an asshole I am


I feel like they were waiting for the opportunity to go in all the way on me and when it came they beat me to a pulp


They wanted yall to believe I was a monster in real life so you guys wouldn’t listen or buy my music anymore


Man I love Twitter… I’ve always been at the mercy of the press but no more… The media tried to demonize me
