Kanye West apologized to Taylor Swift Saturday via Twitter
for jumping on stage while she was giving her acceptance speech after winning the award for Best Female Video during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. West grabbed the microphone out of her hand and told the audience that Beyonce should have won the award.
In a series of Twitter posts, the rapper explained how sorry he is for ruining Swift's moment, and revealed that he even wrote her a song
“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. ... She had nothing to do with my issues with award shows,” West
tweeted. “She had no idea what hit her. She's just a lil girl with dreams like the rest of us. She deserves the apology more than anyone.”
After the VMA incident, the Grammy-winning rapper lost a number of fans, was booed at concerts, and was even called a “jackass” by President Barack Obama
He appears to have learned from his mistakes
, as he tweeted, “When I woke up from the crazy nightmare I looked in the mirror and said GROW UP KANYE ... I take the responsibility for my actions."
