Rapper Kanye West has ended his silence on the controversial Taylor Swift MTV VMA’s acceptance speech interruption from last year and issued an apology to the country singer.
Taking to his Twitter, West questioned the media’s spin on what went down last September.
“Man I love Twitter… I’ve always been at the mercy of the press but no more… The media tried to demonize me,” Ye tweeted yesterday (September 4th).
“They wanted yall to believe I was a monster in real life so you guys wouldn’t listen or buy my music anymore.”
“I feel like they were waiting for the opportunity to go in all the way on me and when it came they beat me to a pulp”
“With the help of strong will, a lack of impathy, a lil alcohol and extremely distasteful & bad timing … I became George Bush over night”
“How deep is the scar… I bled hard.. cancelled tour with the number one pop star in the world … closed the doors of my clothing office”
“Had to let employees go… for the first time I felt the impact of my brash actions … I felt the recession from an ownership side”
“People booed when I would go to concerts and the performer mentioned my name.”
“I was chilling with this white girl having a conversation and she cut me off and said… Hold up… I thought you didn’t like us?!”
“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”
“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.”
“I watched Justin Timberlake at the Grammies loose every televised award including album of the year which the Dixie Chicks won” (Kanye West’s Twitter)
Ye continued the tell-all tweets by calling out how much racial tension was built behind his incident.
“It’s not about race America. No one in our position ever stands up and says anything anymore.,” he added.
“I have given my awards to other groups multiple times on national TV… They never showed that this past year during the massacre of Kanye”
“Yes I was that guy. A 32 year old child.”
“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”
“Why was it made into such a race issue. Taylor loves rap music… I love country music.”
“I want to win there hearts back so I can continue to bring my take on culture to the masses with a clean opinion.”
“It starts with this…”
“I’m sorry Taylor.” (Kanye West’s Twitter)
