For those of you still interested…Kanye “apologizes”

Kanye West attempted to do damage control via his blog, with an apology to Taylor Swift. For those of you who don’t know already, at last night’s MTV VMA’s, West jumped on stage during the country singer’s acceptance speech, stole her mic, and proceeded to tell the audience that Beyonce had the best video of they year. (see the video in my post from last night.)

Here is what Kanye had to say, in his trademark, obnoxious 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!!!!!

To me, this apology smacks with insincerity. Is he mocking her lyrics? I feel like his PR team made him apologize, he didn’t want to, and this is what he came up with. He feels bad for Taylor? Why, because she won? “I feel really bad for Taylor” is something an outsider should say. He’s a fan of real pop culture? Does that mean Taylor isn’t “real” pop culture? Well Yeezy, I have some news for you…T. Swift’s album Fearless sold 3.7 million copies this year…more than any other album (courtesy of Perez Hilton.) If that’s not pop culture I don’t know what is. I’m still really pissed about this. Kanye’s always had a lot of haters, but I’ve respected the music he’s made. This kind of throws all that out the window. He can do all of the “apologizing” he wants, but he’s still gonna come out looking like a tool.

In other news, after Beyonce (female video candidate for ‘Single Ladies’) won Video of the Year, she invited Taylor Swift onstage for a ‘do over.’ This makes me love B even more than I already did…Clearly she felt bad about Kanye’s disruption and even though it wasn’t her fault, she made it up to T. Swift with class. Yay!
