Kanye West apologizes to Bruno Mars for totally selfish reasons
Kanye West may have gotten himself into trouble in the music business one too many times and now he's realizing no one wants to work with him.
The rapper has thrown shade at Taylor Swift, Amber Rose, Tupac, Jimmy Kimmel, Bruno Mars, Beck and more.
And while he and Swift have apparently patched things up since his infamous VMAs interruption — the two were seen hugging it out at this year's Grammys — West still has plenty of work to do before he's back in the music world's good graces.
Apparently, West thinks Twitter is the appropriate place to make amends and Kim Kardashian's husband started with Beck.
This tweet was most likely trying to make up for West's behavior at the 2015 Grammys where the rapper almost grabbed the mic from the Album of the Year winner. At first, everyone thought West was joking, spoofing his behavior at the 2009 VMAs where he stole the mic from Swift.
But in an interview with E! after the show, it became very clear West wasn't joking. "I don't even know what [Beck] said," West explained. "I just know that, the Grammys, if they want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us. We aren't going to play with them no more."
Shortly after his apology to Beck, West released another couple of tweets apologizing to Mars.
Of course, this tweet came with an ulterior motive.
I'm assuming Kanye has people who will ask Mars' people about a collaboration. He doesn't need Twitter to reach the singer. Which means, I'm guessing, Kanye's people already tried this and Mars, rightfully, said no. So West is now heading to Twitter trying to get fans on board so Mars will agree to the song. Otherwise, why make it all so public so soon?
