Kanye West apologizes to Taylor Swift

September 14th, 2009 // 150 Comments

Since apologies go back in time and give a 19-year-old girl a chance to redo her first VMA acceptance speech, Kanye West made everything all better by saying sorry to Taylor Swift on his blog. In all caps:

I’M SOOOOO SORRY TO TAYLOR SWIFT AND HER FANS AND HER MOM. 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 CRIB RIGHT NOW CAUSE … WELL YOU KNOW!!!! I’M STILL HAPPY FOR TAYLOR!!!! BOOOYAAAWWWW!!!! YOU ARE VERY 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!!!!!

Pretty much the only thing I took from this apology is that Kanye knows how to Google Taylor Swift lyrics and say they’re his favorite. Which is impressive considering I assumed he spent most of his time making out with himself in a mirror.

  1. Jackass hater

    Goddamn, this fuck actually dug his own fuckin grave….lets see him get his face back….I dont see it happening….that was a fuck up of gargantuan proportions…..i have not read even ONE single post supporting him…..and everyone says the same thing….go rot in the fuckin gutter you nigger pig…

  2. yawn

    you people do understand that shit was staged.. *Cut to Beyonce looking “stunned” and now pan back to a bewildered Taylor*

    Right now every hick in America is going to MTV.com to watch the video of that “black guy” fucking with their beloved Taylor…and incidentally the ad rates on the MTV website just went up prior to Sunday night’s VMA show…

    Funny how that’s the only place you can see the video of what happened…it’s getting ganked off Youtube quicker than you can shake a stick…

    stop being sheep.

  11. jimmyjazz

    Kanye is a thick thighed midget. 5’8″?? He just wanted to go see if the moonman would play with him.

  12. Aunt Jemima

    Dumb fuck Kayne should go work for ACORN. He belongs there with all the other n-n-n-iddiots.

  13. Dar

    People, PLEASE! Have some sympathy! Kanye was having some major PMS and his punk-ass assistant forgot to pick him up some Mydol. He should be back to his normal, bitchy, self-absorbed diva state in a few days.

  14. Another blaring example of the egocentric, misogynistic (don’t get fooled by West’s “defense” of Beyonce – he wouldn’t have done that to a man) , ungracious, idiotic and just plain boring state of rap. I can Like reality TV, will someone do the right thing and just put this puppy down so we can move on to something actually worthy of our time, money, attention and respect??

  15. Say No to Gay Fish

    Why is a talentless gay fish at an awards show?

    Spinless racist douche.

    “I’M SORRY TO MY FANS IF I LET YOU GUYS DOWN!!!! I’M SORRY TO MY FRIENDS AT MTV.”

    He has fans and friends?? I don’t see how…

  20. Io

    Kanye West hates white people…plus he’s a cocksucker

  21. jiggaboo supastah

    you need to calm down – go east some fried chicken and watermelon, kanye… then you can polish my shoes.. its very relaxing

    after that, you can go out to my cotton field and pick some of that

    your name’s toby, boy

  22. rustingrabbit

    That was an apology? He sounds like my Mom apologizing for hitting me.

    I have to agree with most people here about Beyonce. Since leaving Destiny’s Child, her music has gone down hill. I believe she has amazing talent, but her music annoys the crap out of me so much I change the station after about 30 seconds. I was also unimpressed by her music video up for nomination. The live performance was a tad better, but it was almost too pornographic for me…and I like going to strip clubs with my boyfriend. Keep it on the pole.

    I was more impressed with Pink’s performance on the ropes and Lady Gaga’s stage death…which was a surprise. Kanye West really is a moron if he thinks Beyonce was the best candidate out of them all. She should make better music videos than her just humping on camera if she wants a clean sweep. But he’s a hot blooded male, so that’s all he thinks women are good for anyway.

  23. over-it

    I was appalled by Kanye’s outburst. By now, Im so over his continually embarrassing antics. At this point, I don’t even take him seriously as an artist, a role model or even a decent human being; he’s doing nothing more than embarrassing himself.

    I dont think it matters who won what award…he should have just kept his mouth shut and made his stupid comments post show and not take away the poor girl’s moment.

    I do commend Beyonce on her class, giving Taylor Swift her moment…SEE KANYE?? THATS WHAT A DECENT HUMAN BEING ACTS LIKE!! ….he walks around calling everyone else a racist when he is most racist prick I have ever seen in my life!!

    A final note to Kayne….NO ONE TAKES YOU SERIOUSLY ANYMORE YOU DUMB SHIT!!!

  24. joss

    ditto #7.

    Most of that all-caps vomit sounded less like an apology and more like a justification.

  25. Soupmanson

    Pretty much the only thing I took from this apology is that Kanye knows how to use Caps Lock. I think Kanye needs a visit from 4chan.

  27. KKA

    Kick Kanyes Ass!

  28. pretty sure we can now blame kanye as the reason why the word “nigger” is so popular today. good job buddy. pull your head out of your ass and let go of what happened 200 yeaes ago when…oh wait, africans sold africans into slavery. forgot that part of real history you ignorant fuck? now go run a hot bath, put up some candles and a picture of your beloved malcolm x and beyonce, put on the taylor swift album, and i’ll provide a razor so you can end your life soon. we could use the oxygen you’re wasting

  29. Amy

    Kanye needs to visit his mother’s plastic surgeon.

  30. boycott Kanye West !

    “I LIKE THE LYRICS ABOUT BEING A CHEERLEADER AND SHE’S IN THE BLEACHERS! ……………………”

    By “………….” he means, “I listened to a 30 second Youtube video at the last minute to try and pretend like I knew who T.Swift was before the VMAs”. I can’t stand Taylor’s music but it has been rattled through my skull while I’ve been in college enough times to know that the song has the exact opposite meaning to her being a cheerleader.

    But it is nice to see the douchebaggery of K.West exposed to all. All of us Superficial Readers have been watching it slowly bubble up. I can assure you that this won’t be the biggest or last tantrum by Kanye.

  34. 10pound

    Did that mooly not know about the caps-lock key? Is that a black thing?

  35. Darth

    Booze,coke and frustrations.It was a fragile creature like Taylor Swift who pulled the trigger.

  36. j

    Wouldn’t it have been hillarious if after he did his dumbass move she just looked into the cammera with a stupid look on her face and said … Obama hates white people.

    Somebody needs to make that happen with some video editing and youtube..

  40. name it for christ sake

    she is beauty but had a surfing board body.

  41. biteme

    listen up honkeys – you think you can keep the black man down? Kanye saw some ugly honkey whore on stage stealing the award from a proud black woman. He did what every black man should do. If you do not give it willingly – he will take it by any means necessary.

    Welcome to the Obama America, cock fags

  42. Maria

    You´re an ass, man!!

  43. Superman

    This “apology” confims everything i suspected, Kanye West is a fucking child in a grown mans body. He types in all caps amd says things like BOOOOOOYAAAAAAAWWWW” Who does that? Oh yeah, Kanye. Nice apology dipshit, but you’re still an asshole.

  44. j

    91, That must be the reason for the Black Entertainment Awards…so funy

  45. Amy Gibbs

    West is a Major Racist . Beyonce has Major Class.

  46. mm

    and this is why he is a gay fish.

  47. Dread not

    You think, Kanye and Chris Brown compare and share notes on how to be the most egotistical, a-hole and smug SOB’s they can be? Nah. That would mean they actually cared what other people thought about them.

  48. c. geronimo

    george carlin said, “life is a freak show and if you live in america, you have front row seats.” and we all add – kanye is our biggest star.

    the sad thing is, no matter how big of an idiot kanye is, there are much bigger idiots out there who will continue to buy his CD’s, go to his concerts and continue pumping millions into his bank account.

    long live stupidity ! long live brainlessness ! buy kanye’s cd !
