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.

    I guarantee Taylor is pregnant with Kanye’s baby by next month.

    I am not sure about this, but wasn’t he a pretty grounded kinda fellow when his mom was alive? It seems his new girlfriend, his actions, his words, everything seems “too much” since his mom passed. Sure he was an ass for what he did, but I pray for him because I think he’s troubled. I wonder what he thinks his mom would say was she here now.

  5. Kanye for the lose.

    Fuck Kanye. Acting like it’s no big deal to go up on stage in front of millions of people and grab the mic. What fucking world does he live on? Stupid spoiled faggot, this guy was a nobody up until a few years ago, and now he’s walking around acting like he owns the world. Fuck this Gucci wearing clown.

    Kanye West is sooooo over rated and very fortunate he performs in a decade where technology and looks sell your records. His vocals live are terrible. Yes he can sound good in a studio using pro tools. But if he were born a few decades back and had to compete in the 50s, 60s, 70s or even 80s we would not know his name. If he had to attempt to forge a career where he had to tour and use his voice he would be penniless. Could you imagine him trying to compete against, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye etc. Its laugh out loud funny. The man is a Charlatan. He needs to be a lot less arrogant and happy he has a career and a huge following. Because to be able to achieve that and not be able to sing is pretty ridiculous.

    Is this a KKK forum? I’ve never seen so many racist posts from semi-illiterate racist crackers in one place before! If Kanye IS a racist against white people, who can blame him if this site is an indication of the way white people get down.

  8. ghost

    Fuck you, Kanye. Why don’t you stop for a second and think before you act? Idiot.

  9. F**Kanye

    I agree with LawdyLawdy, west sorry ass needs someone to Tupac his ass

  10. FUCK KANYE WEST!

    Fuck him ! No one asked for his opinion & No one gives a fuck about his opinion. Dont be jealous because everyone Loves taylor more than you. Faggot.

  11. John

    Says it all, though.. the white wins so the jungle bunny with no talent has to get heard somehow.

  12. Imabelle

    Just as I thought – this site is full of crackers/rednecks. Next….

  13. j

    I realy don’t see race in this other than he is a racist…

    Imabelle is it your position that he is not a complete idiot?

    You sound like a racist yourself. Just ignore the racisim and get back to the point… whitch is that Kanye is a complete piece of shit. Would it make you feel better if we (as in the white crarckers such as myself apperently) conceded that say…Eminem was a piece of shit as well?

    Hopefully Bruno will Tea-Bag Kanye at the next awards..would lve to see how he takes it. He may just kill himself (we can dream can’t we)

  14. Porch Monkeys unite

    @107

    Great ! Just what we need – another porch monkey mouthing off about how “dey’s only racist ’cause the white man done be oppressing dem for soooo long. Laws yassa” Face it, Kanye West is a complete waste of talent. He should be holding a lantern in my front yard…

    “Even an apology can be uncouth,” says Lizzie Post, great-great-granddaughter of etiquette grande dame Emily Post.

    “Kanye tweets an apology to her,” says Post, who works for the Emily Post Institute in Vermont and is the author of How Do You Work This Life Thing? “You have publicly ruined her moment and forever tied yourself to it. And you don’t give her the consideration of saying you’re sorry personally but instead you say it to your own fans? I doubt Taylor Swift even follows him on Twitter. It was such an inconsiderate way of dealing with the situation.”

    What an ass.

  16. seanababy16

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but towards the end, when he mentions something about Outkast, it really sounds like he’s telling Taylor to give her award to Beyonce…just me? Not sure. But Kanye is an asshole and a jerk. I lost every ounce of respect I ever had for him after he did that.

    Between Obama and his racist friends and guys like this talentless black man, we will soon be engaged in another civil war.

    It is said she is looking for a young handsome baby on a famous celeb&wealthy romance site _SeekRichBeauty.com—

  20. Truth Doctor

    So last night he proves he’s a douche. Today he proves he’s totally uneducated as well. Nice. These are the people that “know what’s best for America” folks.

  21. Mr. Nice Guy No More

    Dear Kanye West,
    Fuck you. Please get yourself disappeared soon.

    Sincerely,
    Mr. Nice Guy No More

  23. WTF

    I don’t agree with or condone kanye actions, it was in poor taste, but what is with all the racist comments. he never called her a white anything never refered to her race, he is just an ass and always has been to everybody he has done this kind of thing to blacks also. and most of his fans are white so what is with all this porch monkey and nigger and his kind stuff. are we not better than this yet and what does obama have to do with this. remeber white people elected obam. lets just call an ass an ass and not grind our racist axes shame on every one

  24. Facepalm

    Wow,..Kanye a true intellectual out there killing the black stereotypes for all mankind.

    (also Kanye is a gay fish)

  25. DCMikeRotch

    This is the first time Kanye has interrupted a speech on behalf of someone else, and the person he interrupted was white. Guess that MUST mean he’s racist…

  26. um… kayne hasn’t figured out that theres been a piece of gum stuck under the shift key…

    Stupid douche.

  27. kanyeNeedsALife

    kayne really needs a life. all he does is music,tour, party and drinks. forsure he need some education or some spanking.

  28. iamsofool925

    She is really sexy!!! I have ever seen her hot video on the wealthy dating club (sugarscupid. c o m) for hot guys and

    girls to hook up each other. She is really sexy with bikini in that video.

    i’m sick of small dick black guys with white cock jealousy. i’m fucking a black girl right now and she says black guys just look bigger but don’t get as big when hard. or as hard for that matter, says i am the biggest one by far. obama isn’t all black, he is half and half, so fuck you kanye west. go be a racist, no one cares about you or rap anymore, except for some stupid teenie boppers. fuck beyonce too, she was smiling. taylor is way hotter than her fat ass. kanye west also has an ugly girlfriend. fuck any racist on this site.

  32. peerless

    A place someone who can treat you as a king or who can
    spoil you like a queen, this is the great place. It’s dedicated
    for those sugar daddies^^^^^ Sugarloves.Com ^^^^
    who are rich and successful to support and pamper women
    who will treat you like a king and for sugar babies who are
    attractive and young to seek a generous benefactor to
    mentor and take care of you.

  33. Kanye’s 3rd apology on Jay Leno…. Was that really an apology??? Kanye did seem a bit remorseful. Were those tears real??? Read the text of interview here:

  34. pedro

    for being a drunken gay prick, kanye must be condemned to wash taylor’s used panties.. or maybe.. lick my black ass til it turns white..

  35. hateskanyenow

    @23…What the fuck is wrong with you? First of all, please speak in english so the rest of the world can understand you. Secondly, it wasn’t the “ass of the year” award, therefore your argument doesn’t apply. And if you really think Obama thinks like you…you’re fucking wrong. Not every black person (thankfully), thinks like A RETARD (ie. like you). Go somewhere.

    kanye and chris brown would make a great rap duo…..Uday & Qusay

  39. Jessica Pitts

    I just feel so sorry for Taylor Swift, this was the poor girls first VMA award and he put her down like that and stole her moment. And that was definately not an apology!!!!! But kudos to Beyonce for being that classy after what he did!!!!

  40. William

    The lyrics in his next song should be “I. Am. Afro Man. Running in the woods from the Ku Klux Clan!” Seriously, this guy is a douchebag. If he was really a man, he would’ve apologized to Taylor Swift in person. Racist scumbag!

  41. asdf

    damn she is hot. kanye is a fucking retard.

  42. Yo yo yo!

    I don’t think he was mean enough, honestly. Naive white chicks eat that shit up and ask for seconds.

    And I mean, you gotta commit. He already had the mic and the intention, why not just do a whole stand up act already? Oh, wait, that’s not fat Chris Rock… Shit, why don’t y’all just wear nametags or something…

  43. tedg

    #’s 22 and 50: please stop insulting 13-year-old girls.

  44. drewrichards

    You apologize and expect all is forgiven?

    Hell no, why should it be?

    EVERY damn drunk in the world that harms someone else while intoxicated cries…”I was drunk”
    I’m sorry you have to forgive me because I could not control myself while drunk.
    Well here is the thing, ANYONE who is drunk may not be able to CONTROL their actions while intoxicated BUT, they are still RESPONSIBLE for ALL of their actions and the consequences.

    This little girl was up for her first VMA award and that moment is gone…ruined forever just like a drunk driver running over and killing you child…yes two different things but same dang story…”I was drunk” you have to forgive me blah blah blah…
    Sorry no, NO ONE has to forgive you for total obnoxious and rude behavior.
    You have shown yourself,

    1. Immature

    2. Out of Control.

    3. A danger to society.

    I just wish the cops had arrested you for obvious drunk driving when you left the VMA’s.

    You should get down on your knees and thank God you were lucky to not get popped by someone or arrested when you drove off…

    I hope and pray you get arrested so you can finally sober up and see what you do to yourself and to others before you end up killing someone.

    This is not about race people, it is about an out of control alcoholic that abused someone and himself very publicly. If you can’t see that then you’re just a race baiter and of course nothing I say will change your mind that “notin your brother does can be too bad…”

  45. Vaxon

    Kanye West is now officially my fucking hero.
    Hes done awesome shit before.
    But now hes just getting epic.

    And really bitches?
    throwing a fit over some bitch most have never heard of until kanye fucked with her

  46. I smell a ratings set-up.

  47. Whitey

    Kayne West is a nigger. And Obama had every right to call him a jackass…he should of called him a nigger instead. He is ignorant. Can’t spell, let alone fucking give an apology correctly.

    If he can’t see how he is being stereotypical to his own race then..people like him will never change people’s minds about anything. He is in spot light, for God’s sake have some fucking respect and decency.

  48. Kanye’s really starting to wear out his welcome. With his music getting progressively worse with his last 2 albums and his constant immature antics, I personally just don’t really care about Kanye West anymore. Sure he’s talented, but surely there’s plenty of people who could take his place who aren’t complete jackasses.

    At first his attitude was amusing, but I’ve completely lost patience for it now. Personally I could care less about the VMAs, but the fact that there’s yet another incident of Kanye acting like a child over nothing is unsurprising and embarrassing. And that’s a good word to describe Kanye a lot of times – embarrassing.
