Okay, so I know there is a lot of talk about this, it is not the first time Kanye Has done something outragious at an awards show, to be honest we expect it now, it has entertainment values, However, surely he crossed the line this time.
I am a Kanye West fan, therefore I am dissapointed, Taylor Swift did not deserve it, you see how genuinely happy she was to receive her first VMA award, Beyonce has a fair few already, regardless, I just think that Kanye West has let the accolades get to him, it is strange because on one side it was complete wrong, on the other I understand that Kanye is extremely passionate about his music and he is not afraid to voice an opinion, maybe his approach could have been far better, with fame and success comes a lot of responsibility, he can be forgiven but he has forever tarnished Taylor Swift’s ‘moment’.
He has apologised but that is up to Taylor Swift to accept, you have to admit that the random outburst does possess some comical value and who knows all this publicity that it is getting, maybe Mr West has done Taylor a favour, sympathy could lead to boosted record sales.
In response to his behavior, Kanye issued the following apology on his blog this morning:
“I’m sooooo sorry to Taylor Swift and her fans and her mom [Andrea]. 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 cribe right now cause.
I’m still happy for Taylor!!!! Boooyaawww!!!! You are 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!!!!!”
