Kanye West has unleashed a ’stream of sorry’ over Twitter for his now infamous interruption of Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
West left a series of over 50 postings on his Twitter account on Saturday, and over a two-hour period expressed his deep regret over the douchebag incident that infuriated fans and tarnished his rep.
“How deep is the scar… I bled hard… cancelled [a] tour with [Lady Gaga] the number one pop star in the world… closed the doors of my clothing office (sic),” he wrote.
“I’m the guy who at one point could perform the Justin Timberlake on stage and everyone would be sooo happy that I was there. 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.
“Who am I to run on stage? I would never ever again in a million years do that. Sorry to let you down,” he continued. “I am not a bad person. Even in that moment I was only trying to do good but people don’t always need my help… Beyonce didn’t need that. MTV didn’t need that and Taylor and her family friends and fans definitely didn’t want or need that.”
“I’ve hurt, I’ve bled, I’ve learned. I only want to do good. I am passionate I am human I am real. I wish I could meet every hater… face to face and change there a opinion of me one conversation at a time. I want to win there hearts back so I can continue to bring my take on culture to the masses with a clean opinion.”
He added: “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.
“I’m sorry Taylor,” he concluded.
West is due to perform at next weekend’s MTV Video Music Awards. Will be behave himself? He better.
