Kanye West Apologizes For Being A Douche On The VMAs

In case you missed it, from tonight's MTV VMAs:

Kanye West was then escorted from Radio City Music Hall. Shortly thereafter, the following appeared on his blog:

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!!!!!

That's a lot of all caps, exclamation points, and overly dramatic elliptical pauses, people.

I love the idea that he got shamed by Swift's Mom afterward. God, I hope there's audio for that phone call somewhere.

Comments

Lauren

He's a moron. Let's pray that he's sterile.

Diane

Dude is whatever the opposite of a class act is.

An ass clact. Or ... something.

larissa

funny how he ends it with "RESPECT" when it seems that by his actions he has no idea what the word means

Bree

He is such an ass. Taylor Swift seems like such a little girl and her face after he did that just killed me! I hope her mom really gave it to him.

Audrey

What an incredible douchenozzle!

I hope Beyonce bitch-slapped him afterward.

Alyssa

I heard Beyonce did something to make it up to Taylor Swift later but I didn't hear what exactly... anyone know the details of that?

Pat Harrington

I think Kayne is a huge racist himself. I feel so bad for Taylor Swift, she is a young girl that did nothing to deserve this.

Should we give every award to people because of there color? Kayne is wrong a thousand times over.

Pat Harrington

I love your comment... I hope he's sterile too.

Rachel

That was not an apology. What a douche face.

Rachel

DUDE. After reading some more articles about this I have more to say. Taylor won the FIRST award. Beyonce went on to win Video of the Year for Single Ladies! WTF Kanye? You couldn't wait to see if Beyonce won the biggest award of the night?

Oh, and when Beyonce won she called Taylor back up and let her give her acceptance speech. Way to keep it classy, ladies.

bluepaintred

beyonce won an award shortly thereafter but instead of giving her speech, she asked taylor swift to come up and finish her moment.

Kate

Oh, her little face at the end just absolutely *kills* me. Here she was so humble and amazed at such a big moment, and he stole that from her.

To do that to *anyone* was douchey, but to a young girl barely out of her teens, it was just despicable. Totally bully move. She handled it beautifully, though, and I love that everyone has come to her defense.

Trish

His douchebaggery is very impressive. You know, if his mama were alive she would have kicked his ass. I agree with Kate, the look on Taylor's face was heartbreaking. She was so proud to get a VMA when she's a country girl. Hell I was proud of her and I don't even listen to all that much country.

Beyonce gets enough recognition, let this talented woman get some too! Though I will say, kudos to Miss Jay Z for letting Taylor finish her speech.

ravenlynne

Taylors face after makes me want to cry...Kanye = Dick...

indycitygirl

I didnt see any of this till this AM,WTF!!!He took that one golden moment in that girls life and stomped on it,ASSHAT!!! Kayne needs to be Tbagged by a sweaty jailhouse road crew that has been working 12 hours out in the sun in the middle of July.Please dont call him a douche because thats a insult to the douches of the world,Kayne is just a piece of shit

Big props to Beyonce,your a class act and thank you from many millions of people for trying to help Taylor get back her one moment that dick sstole from her

AmyC65

exactly. more like "sorry y'all are pissed at me for saying the truth". that is not an apology.

AmyC65

thankfully Taylor faces plenty more awards in her life. Hopefully that will lessen the sting of what he did to her. what a tool.

Shannon

I think this so-called apology is too little, too late. It's not going to change my mind on what a tool I think Kanye is.

If I already didn't like this egotistical douchebag...

Bunny

It is such a shame that whatever musical talent he may have is totally lost in the fact that he is such a douche.

A grown ass man, throwing a temper tantrum like a 4 year old. Someone needs a good spanking and a time out in the corner.

How many times is he going to have to show his ass like this (this isn't his first little tantrum) before he is banned from live shows?

Bless Taylor, she held her composure very well, and I am so proud of her. If that had been me standing up there Mr West would've had a hard time walking back off that stage with my 6 inch heel up his ass.

And wow, good on Beyonce. Was not a fan of hers before last night. I am now. There are STARS and there are celebrities. Beyonce's class def puts her in the STAR category.

Fawn Amber

My God. I don't think I can say anything more than what I've already read in the comments. Is there a petition somewhere we can sign to get him removed from radio and tv play? Something?

LMAO @ Ass Clact...Classic.

Katie Kat

Just SHUT UP Kanye. Just keep your freakin' mouth SHUT. There is not room for your ego in any venue, let alone the world. You need to just stop believing your own demented version of yourself and GET REAL. Moron.

Karina in T.O

I actually assumed his apology may have been when he flipped the camera the bird....then I scrolled down to the E-MAIL SCREAMING APOLOGY you posted Sweetney.

I have one question really.....does this guy have some form of Tourette's syndrome or something that we haven't been made aware of? Because he seems prone to these uncontrolable freakin' outbursts at any given time! Also wtf is with the e-mail screaming apology? Is his BlackBerry caps lock key stuck or something???!! Douche of the day this guy is, douche of the day.

Mike

What a feeble act he is. Then Beyonce wins the really big award--classic. His apology seems somewhat self-serving after he saw the reaction (oops, that made me look bad).

Ashlie- Mommycosm

I watched the whole thing and wanted to wrap my mommy arms around Taylor Swift the moment it happened. She looked so humiliated. I was SO proud to see her performance just a few minutes later. She was fabulous and is truly one of the few singers I consider a role model for my young daughter.

And, I must say, Beyonce was a CLASS ACT. I've always considered her to be talented, but now I have the upmost respect for her as a person.

Erin Jones

haha, "ass clact" That is truly the only way to describe him. What a horrible, selfish, child he is. Poor Taylor, her first MTV award, and he had to do that. And right before she had to perform! Ugh, what a jerk! I'm so glad she held her head high, and put on a great show. I am still SO MAD.

Kemi

I love how in Kanye's "apology" (which it SO was not), it seems like he's trying to shame Taylor Swift into giving up her VMA to Beyonce.

The ego, the behavior, the attitude... stunning.

Suzy Q

Translation: You need to give your award to Beyonce right now because I said so! You're okay, little white girl, but you're no Beyonce.

schmutzie

Okay, so when is this guy going to realize he needs medication. His lack of impulse control is astounding.

Kari Weber

so the video isn't working anymore (stupid copyright laws...) anyone know where else I can find it? I missed the VMA's.
