Kanye West Apologizes to Taylor Swift, Dedicates Song
After infamously interrupting her acceptance speech at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards, it appears Kanye is attempting to reconcile with the young singer before he will inevitably encounter her at this year’s awards.
“I’m sorry, Taylor,” he tweeted remorsefully. “We’re both artists, and the media and managers are trying to get between us. She deserves the apology more than anyone….She had no idea what hit her. She’s justa lil girl with dreams like the rest of us. Beyoncé didn’t need that. MTV didn’t need that and Taylor and her family friends and fans definitely didn’t want or need that.”
After likening himself to the Wicked Witch of the West and claiming he’s been victimized by a racist media, Kanye went on to say that he’s learned from his error, and has grown as a result.
“When I woke up from the crazy nightmare, I looked in the mirror and said GROW UP KANYE,” he continued. “I’m ready to get out of my own way. The ego is overdone. I take the responsibility for my actions. Yes I was that guy. A 32 year old child. 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.”
Finally, Kanye announced that he has dedicated a new song to Taylor, which he intends for her to hear by any means necessary.
“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,” he wrote. “It’s starts with this,” he tweeted. “I’m sorry Taylor.”
