Kanye Takes Over Twitter
Even if all the rappers have a lot to say, Kanye West is always a step ahead. Since the VMAs, the Grammy winner took his Twitter followers down a sea of musings and regrets, with many tweets, some just minutes apart from each other. What happened? The night he ruined for Taylor Swift and her acceptance speech at the 2009 VMAs.
He didn’t just say: “I’m sorry Taylor”, he also empathized: “She had nothing to do with my issues with award shows. She had no idea what hit her. She’s just a lil girl with dreams like the rest of us.” But he does point fingers: “We’re both artist(s) and the media and managers are trying to get between us. Everyone wants to capitalize off this is some way.” He then said: “I want to win…hearts back so I can continue to bring my take on culture to the masses.”
He also made a peace offer: “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.”
But this isn’t the end. She also opened his heart to a lot more:
“There are people who don’t dislike me, they absolutely hate me!” he tweeted, who seemed particularly disturbed by what the media said of his behavior: “Man I love Twitter… I’ve always been at the mercy of the press but no more… The media tried to demonize me….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,” he finished, “Even now a lot of articles start…about how much of an asshole I am.”
He kept going on with the self-awareness statements: “It is distasteful to cut people off as a general rule….What’s the point of dressing tastefully if I’m going to act the complete opposite?”
And he also wanted people to know how he really is: 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 talk to every hater face to face and change there a opinion of me one conversation at a time”.
Now, everybody’s going to watch him at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, on Sunday, September 12.11
