This past Saturday over the course of an hour and a half and 78 tweets, Kanye West finally apologized to Taylor Swift for interrupting her acceptance speech at the 2009 VMA Awards for Best Female Video. Kayne felt that Beyonce should have been the winner and was not shy about letting the world know this.
Here you can read in full his breakdown of what happened and how he currently feels about the situation (in 140 and less increments). You can always follow him @KanyeWest and her at @TaylorSwift13.
Man I love Twitter… I’ve always been at the mercy of the press but no more… The media tried to demonize me
They wanted yall to believe I was a monster in real life so you guys wouldn’t listen or buy my music anymore
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
Even now a lot of articles start there first 2 paragraphs about how much of an asshole I am
I accept the idea (ideal) that perception is reality
When I say perception is reality I mean whatever you think is the truth… is your truth
Some people’s truth is Kanye is racist… It’s not my truth but I do believe it’s my Karma…. walk with me…
Even though the NBC telethon was widely praised yall didn’t think they was just gone let me get away with that did yall???!!!
With the help of strong will, a lack of impathy, a lil alcohol and extremely distasteful & bad timing … I became George Bush over night
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
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
People booed when I would go to concerts and the performer mentioned my name.
