HomeTVMTV Video Music Video AwardsKanye Apologizes to Taylor Swift After Her Appearance on The View Luke Kerr September 15, 2009 MTV Video Music Video Awards, The View 4 Comments Admist all of Kanye West’s public apologies to Taylor Swift –on his blog and The Jay Leno Show –for his behavior at Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards, it seems he hadn’t take the time to apologize to Swift personally. During her appearance on The View, Swift was asked by Sherri Shepherd if she’d want to meet with with Kanye face-to-face, her response was "Sure. I mean he has not personally reached out." Barbara Walters followed up by asking, "He hasn’t called or sent a message or anything?" Swift responded with a simple, "No." The conversation continued, but near the end of the topic Whoopi told Taylor "Well hopefully, if Kanye is watching, he’ll know what to do." Kanye seems to have received the message. In an interview with ABC News Radio, Swift revealed that after The View aired, Kanye called her and apologized. "Kanye did call me, and he was very sincere in his apology, and I accepted that apology." The fallout from Sunday’s incident has spread, even into the world of politics. In an off-the-record moment President Obama was heard calling Kanye a "jackass" and the private comment was tweeted to the world by an ABC reporter.

He has apologized several times. He even went on Jay Leno when most people would have just cancelled. I know that he has said and done some things in the past that people have found arrogant, but it is obvious to me that this man is screaming out for help. He will not get it because it has become the cause celebre to bash him. He also will not get it because it is not beneficial to and for the people that he has surrounded himself with. One more thing that I just really find disgusting is that because he made this very poor error in judgement we now have all the hatemongers, race baiting. Tell me how what he did became about race. Because it was a young white girl? Really? Ask yourself why noone stopped him from going on the stage. They knew he had been drinking already. It’s not like he hadn’t done the same thing before. Why didn’t anyone stop him? Do you think an average Joe Schmoe fan would have been able to get up on stage? I don’t think he is an A$$hole…I think he needs help. I have met REAL a holes and trust me when I say that he has nothing on them. Log in to Reply Dariclone September 16, 2009 I’d agree with you, pspencer618. I love both Taylor Swift and Kayne West but I think fame is a drug and it’s gotten to Kayne. He definitly needs help to deal with being a celebrity and I hope he gets it and keeps going.

I would have been very pissed off at him, but he did apologize and Taylor accepted it and we can all move on. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
