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!”

I think he is full of crap!! The only reason he apologized is more than likley because his manager told him to just to make sure that his rep stayed intact. Taylor Swift should have been able to make her acceptance speech with out some dumb ass jumpin up on stage acting like a child. I am a Taylor Swift fan and she deserved that moment.

I think his handlers reminded him of just how much money he was going to lose as he shot his self in the foot, he is sorry but not for the right reasons, sorry for his self. grow up little boy

LOL all this attention just boosted Taylor Swifts career, Kanye's (although most people think not but how many people are googling this right now?) and Beyonce's....his antics maybe random but hey....the attention is paid. Taylor Swift should be thanking him right now LMAO!

WOW! Does Kanye really think he is so untouchable that he can say or do whatever he wants, well I was never a Taylor Swift fan to begin with but thanks to this ass he put a boost in her career, and I really do hope that MTV re-thinks about ever asking him back. I know for a fact my son, sister, and my niece were all big fans of Kanye West but after watching his rant they all agreed that they would never buy any of his music or watch any show that he appears on. now that's class.
