This absolutely shocked me. I visited Kanye’s Twitter page and he’s apologizing endlessly about the VMA incident that happened almost a year ago. See for yourself.
Some highlights are:
Kanye posted around 100 tweets in a couple of hours.
He started with innocent posts, like
“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”
He moved on to posts like
“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.”
Finally, he started bringing up Taylor.
“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.”
“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.”
“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 … 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 … 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’m sorry Taylor.”
Kanye’s been silent since then.
