Beyonce invites Swift video

Kayne West apologizes to Taylor Swift in light of his MTV VMA outburst. West is in the doghouse and Swift has never been so beloved!

West’s outburst that illustrated his opinion that Swift should not have won Best Female Video and instead should have gone to Beyonce has pure Kanye. Remember, this is the artist who said he’d never return to MTV because he did not win a Moonman. If he was never coming back, then why was he on stage?

What is truly remarkable is how the sentiment of the world has gone to the young country singer who was excited simply to be invited to the MTV party. “I’m a country singer,” Swift said. “I’m thrilled to be here.”

Beyonce closed the evening with a VMA moment for the ages. Accepting her Video of the Year award for Single Ladies, Beyonce called Swift back on stage to complete her first VMA acceptance speech.

Kanye West’s apology to Taylor Swift

Via his blog, Kanye seemed sincere for at least a paragraph, saying, “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!”
