Kanye Spares The Public! Apologizes Directly To Taylor!

| Filed under: Kanye WestTaylor Swift

Hopefully, this is the end!

Minutes after Taylor Swift's visit to The View, the country singer got a much deserved surprise!

The ladies asked Taylor whether she received a personal apology from Kanye after the VMA debacle on Sunday night, to which she replied that she never heard from him.

According to reps at The View, Kanye called Taylor right after her segment ended and profusely apologized.

Says the show's rep, “After the show he spoke personally to the country music superstar via telephone and has apologized to the 19-year-old singer. She has accepted Mr. West’s apology. The contents of the phone call are to remain private.”

Why didn't he think of this before?!

We hope he's learned a lesson in humility - but, we doubt it!

    I think his Mother would be so disappointed in him. Money can not buy you CLASS.



  2. 2

    pfft! the damage is done!! the public still hate his guts!



  3. 3

    Still don't like him..



  4. 4

    Love his music, but he needs to come down some.



  5. 5

    someone make this ass a humble pie and stiff it down his big ass mouth.



  6. 6

    *stufffffff.
    *
    wooooooops!



  7. 7

    Well at least he made right by it, or tried anyway



  8. 8

    He is the biggest asshole on the face of the earth. If that happened to him, he would be hitting the roof. Taylor Swift was very mature about the whole situation.

  9. YUCK says – reply to this


    9

    too little too late asshole,

    ***

    death to kanye! I will change the radio dial when his shit music comes on just like I do chris browns.



  10. 10

    Ok… good. That was the right thing to do. NOW… back to business - does this mean Jon Gosselin is back to being King Douche Bag?



  11. 11

    Good, I'm glad he called her personally, finally! Now is it all over and can we get on to the next thing? HE'S STILL A DOUCHE BAG!



  12. 12

    boo fucking hooo…how long is it going to be before she REALLY starts milking it????

    it's kanye…apologies don't mean shit. you got the short end of the stick. you coulda hit him with your moon man, nobody would have cared. people would have celebrated…

    of all the things that happen to people, gah…it's low on the totem pole…

    i'm sorry. it's tragic. he said he was sorry. (as sorry as he is gonna get, anyhow)…

    let it go.



  13. 13

    If you want it to be the end then stop reporting on it all day a-hole.

    I'm tired of hearing about this. Why is everyone so surprised? He's done this at awards numerous times. The only reason its making headlines is because it happened to a white girl that sings country music.

    And give me a break, it was the VMAs not the freaken Grammy's. I'm tired of hearing this crap about how he "stole" her moment. VMA people!



  14. 14

    why couldnt he do it face to face? surely its important enough for him to make time for it. he needs to seriously take a step back and a good look at himself



  15. 15

    Ok. I love Taylor Swift, but enough with this story already! This should not be national news. Kanye is a jerk. This isn't the first time he has done this, but hopefully it will be the last.



  16. 16

    OMG I AM SO FUKING SICK OF THIS STORY!! Kanye is an idiot for his unending apologigies! White people do shit to Blacks all day everyday and you can barely get one apology out of them. Fuk that! is shit is getting really ridiculous with all the backlash and apologies! SO what some little mediocore talented white girl got her feelings hurt - so fuking what! The Presedent gets heckled during his address to the nation by some white trash republikkkan senator and no one hardly bats an eye. Give me a fuking break!



  17. 17

    THIS is what Kanye should have done to begin with. Forgo the publicity and just speak directly to the person he needed to make amends with…much more sincere and genuine. Is this over now? I wonder how it will affect his future plans to change and grow that he referred to on Leno last night.



  18. 18

    took long enough. i'm all for forgivness, but in the case, just doesn't cut it. he needs to go away for a while and do something good with his time. then maybe.



  19. 19

    A-S-S-H-O-L-E



  20. 20

    A Black woman got brutally beaten in GA by some Big azz cowardly white male crakkka i n front of her 7 year old daghter at CRAKKKKER Barrel and where is this fuking story? A white man brutally beats a Blk female in front of her child at Crackkker barrel gets no news. yet some stupid white girl gets her feelings hurt and the wrold is supposed to stop and execute this Blk man???? I am so sick of white people and their hypocritcal azzes.



  21. 21

    Arrogant Asshole Kanye West's apology on Jay Leno was pathetic that nobody bought. He just rambled on making little sense, never looked up, now blaming his mother's death. YOU ARE STILL AN ARROGANT ASSHOLE! You called Taylor after she was on the view…YOU ARE 2 DAYS LATE YOU ALCOHOLIC FREAK!!



  22. 22

    and here we go with the race issue….



  23. 23

    You know why he waited? Because he's a coward. It takes a big person to admit they made a mistake and say they are sorry to the person they hurt. He had to find out it would be okay or if she would even accept his call before he would try to contact her. It's because he's chicken shit. Taylor forgave him quickly because she's a good person. Kanye is still going to be an asshole and pull stunts like this.



  24. 24

    he is a totally toolbox. I thought i was superb when KC asked what happened to him as a child. A grown man bullying a young girl. please. someone knock that chip off his shoulder



  25. 25

    Taylor has more class than he ever will (have you seen that ridiculous "girl" friend of his?)



  26. 26

    He only apologized because the entire world is now against him & realizes that he is a jerk. It wasnt sincere im sure. He needs to check his "big ego" at the door.



  27. 27

    I THINK HE ONLY DID IT CUZ HIS REP TOLD HIM TO..EVERYONE SEES THE REAL HIM!!HIS FIRST ACTIONS ARE WHAT COUNT AND HE F***ED UP!!



  28. 28

    Re: Blk Beauty – Oh here we go….blacks get treated like shit booo hoo hoo! Oh but if it was the other way around and he interrupted Beyonce or some shit there would be a riot on the streets. It was wrong for him to do what he did to Taylor Swift, he should NOT be able to come back to any Music Awards ever again.



  29. 29

    Still a douche



  30. 30

    I love how race is being thrown into this, wth? Anyways, thank God he finally just apologized so the world can just mooovee on. And hopefully Kanye hides for awhile, sick of him by now.



  31. 31

    I think that he derserves to be forgiven yet I think he has some issues and its probably do to the death of his mother .. cut him some slack its obvious he drinks that much bcus he is in so much pain



  32. 32

    Took him long enough. The only reason he called to apologize is because Taylor made it public knowledge that he hadn't reached out to her at all. He's as classless as they come. Too little to late! Taylor is wise beyond her years and has handled everything with such grace. Team Taylor!!!



  33. 33

    what an idiot. i knew this was all a pr stunt. she proved that he's a douche by not directly apologizing to her first over phone or in person. Instead he went through the media to do that and she called him out on that. I hope she writes a bad song about him!



  34. 34

    Good for Kanye. I'm still going to listen to his music.



  35. 35

    Big Fucking Deal… So he learned how to use a telephone! He probably had to borrow it from somebody! Taylor Deserved Better! Lets Face It - Kanye Is A Pompous ASS! Too Late, Sorry!



  36. 36

    It take a real man to apologize way way after the fact. After he realizes his first 2 online aplogies were shit. too bad he sucks now, he has nothing to fall back on. Also did anyone else see where he offered to help her? Ha, help her, last I check she out-sold him. She does not need help from a such a hack. we all know he does not feel bad for what he did. and he's probobly still angry at the world for not cheeriing him on. f him and his lame apologies.



  37. 37

    Re: Blk Beauty – you should calm down. plenty was said when wilson yelled at the president, it's still being talked about. do you not own a television? you own a computer obviously, so you should see things on the internet. this is not a race issue, but you want to make it one. he humiliated himself, you just don't do that unless you're a jerk. he should have known he would get talked about.



  38. 38

    u dont have to like Kanye personality but admit it u know as an artist he is talented. I love his music no matter what. People so angry at him and calling him douche. you know whos a real douche? Chris Brown. for beating the hell outta a woman! ok that is something to be deeply angry about. but all this fuss cuz kanye interupted taylor swift on stage? get over it



  39. 39

    pppllleeeaassseee

    k- kan't keep mouth shut, for his own good..
    a- ass hole made a big mistake, taking on taylor
    n- nothing he says will ever help
    y- yes he blows !
    e- eww wtf was that on his head?



  40. 40

    Chapter closed! Move on



  41. 41

    THAT shows what a self centered, classless asshole he is….it NEVER occured to him to actually apologize to the person he fucked over. He was ONLY interested in repairing his public image, he didn't give a shit about the person he actually did the thing to.



  42. 42

    Soooo, basically he only apologized when it was exposed to the world (and his publicist) that he never actually apologized directly to her — which of course, would have been the right thing to do and should have been done that evening. Sounds like it was all for show, and he really didn't mean it.



  43. 43

    There are people sitting in jail for murder and are really sorry as well. KANYE WEST IS A DOUCHE BAG



  44. 44

    Re: coco321 – Chris brown never received this kind of backlash because he beat up a BLACK FEMALE entertainer. i did not see nearly this much of an outrage. hell these same white bitches were on here saying how Rhianna deserved it and how they loved Chris blah blah blah. Now one of their own gets her feelings hurt by some blk artists and these hypocritical white bitches got pitch forks ready to burn him at stake? Fuking white azz hypocrites. yet kanye says his opinion on how another artists had a better video and all hell breaks loose??? You'd think he fuking killed some white hoe or something the way people are going on. WHY? Because it was some stupid white girl. PERIOD!



  45. 45

    Finally this shit is over!!!!… after two days of talking about this stupid event… all is finally OVER!!!! thank god is over!!!… this thing was getting more ridiculous every day…



  46. 46

    bullcrap. he's going top say whatever to try and fix is image.



  47. 47

    I mean kanye is a very talented artist! he doesnt have to get up on stage and be a jackass just to get a lil attention. It was so disrespectful to taylor but also beyonce because she had to deal with the humilation of the camera going straight to her after his lil fit. kanye if we wanted to know ur two sense about the whole whose got the better video then they would of appointed u as a judge for the VMAs' so go back to doing what you do and just quit being such a deush (sorry for the misspelling)



  48. 48

    damn kanye stop apologizing. fuck this bitch she don't give a fuck about you. she's happy she got some extra publicity. she looked mad doofy when she was performing running up the subway lol. lame asz biatch. team kanye.



  49. 49

    Re: Blk Beauty – OH WWHHAAAA….."All those white people treat me and my peeps like crap" GET OVER IT LOSER!!! This is not about race. Kayne is an idiot, Just like you are.



  50. 50

    i love kanye's music and im still a fan of his. i don't even care for taylor swift but that doesn't mean i condone what kanye did. people out here acting like he slapped the shit out that girl.



  51. 51

    Re: Blk Beauty – WOW. YOU ARE AN ANGRY WOMAN! LOL BUT I FEEL YOU. KANYE IS A JERK ASSHOLE ETC, BUT THERE ARE PLENTY OF JERKS IN THE WORLD. WHY ARE WE CRUCIFYING KANYE? YOU WOULD THINK HE TOOK THE MOON MAN AND HIT HER WITH IT! BUT I DON'T THINK ITS AS RACIAL AS YOU MAKE IT SEEM, AND I DONT THINK ITS AS NON RACIAL AS OTHER PPL MAKE IT SEEM. IT ALWAYS LOOKS BAD WHEN A BLACK MAN SEEMINGLY "ATTACKS" A WHITE GIRL NO MATTER WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCES. IT JUST LOOKS BAD. BUT I HOPE WE CAN MOVE ON. WE HAVE MORE IMPORTANT ISSUES AT HAND. HELLO, HEALTH CARE??? BUT I CAN SEE WHY YOU FEEL THE WAY YOU DO.



  52. 52

    Since thats who should have been apologized to first and foremost… it doesn't hold water now. I'm sure someone in control of his money told him to call her before he is completely ostracized.
    I'm sure even his mother has turned her back on him now.



  53. 53

    Re: Blk Beauty – thank you. that's why i can't stand white people. what kanye did is not that big of a deal. MTV LOVED IT, IT MADE GREAT TV. ya dumb fucks.



  54. 54

    Way to late for me! I'm done with him! Go Taylor!



  55. 55

    Kanye was drunk and carried his usual award show upstaging B.S. too far this time. Taylor Swift is a nice innocent rich white girl who makes boring music. I would still buy Kanye's music any day over Taylor's, but what he did was just plain mean.



  56. 56

    Re: Blk BeautyRe: Blk Beauty – This is not about somebody getting beat up or killed! Dont change around the story!



  57. 57

    I want a song to come from this…a duet.



  58. 58

    i actually felt orry for him on jay leno last night. as long as he nevers pulls this shit again…i think people should let it go.



  59. 59

    Re: Blk Beauty – urgh, that is one thing i cant stand about the american side of the family, they all think they are so hard done by and the whole world is against them. my grandparents came to britain from jamaica in the 50s with no money at all in a time when there was quite a bit of racism, so what did they do? they worked damn hard to give my dad, uncles and aunts a better life. so stop complaining and making everything a 'race issue'. life is what you make it, race is only a factor if you let it be one, be polite and curteous and people will be polite and curteous in return 99% of the time. everyone goes through shit, black south africans, jews, afro-caribbeans, asians in uganda etc etc etc. there is no need to bring it up constantly



  60. 60

    Re: Blk Beauty

    I love how so many blacks are turning this into a race thing (as usual). Slavery was done decades ago, it is not an excuse anymore. Kanye is an ass whether he is black, white, asian, it doesn't matter. This had nothing to do with race. (other than Kanye the racist upset again that a shittly black artist - Beyonce- didn't win)



  61. 61

    Let's see, we have Health Care Reform issues, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the economic disaster, and many other serious problems in this country, and all I hear about is something that Kanye said to a 19-year-old girl. Wow!



  62. 62

    Re: coolasschickk – EXACTLY! What Kanye did to Taylor was the best thing to ever happen to that untalented hack! She should be THANKING HIM. B/C now we will never see nor hear the end of HER or this stupid overplayed incident.



  63. 63

    did she just bring the race card up again?
    get the fuck over it. blah blah balh 400 years…puhleaze! i dont see no white colleges with just white folks. i dont see no white entertainment channel oh shut the fuck up with that white people shit. Can't we all just get a bong?



  64. 64

    Re: Blk Beauty – White girls > black girls



  65. 65

    what is so unfortunate and pisses me off is that we all rooted for him when his very first album came out-collegedrop i think it was called. and I also think that Beyonce redeamed herself to all the haters out there proving sh may be a diva but not a total bitch. As with you Kanye you need to get your SHIZZ TOGETHER PUNKASS!

  66. Theo says – reply to this


    66

    Right, Tayor and the ladies on The View basically called him out for not having apologized directly to her yet…so he then calls her. WHY SO LONG? I mean, we're just keep'in it real.



  67. 67

    Re: Blk Beauty – you said "Re: coco321 – Chris brown never received this kind of backlash because he beat up a BLACK FEMALE entertainer. "
    ____________________________

    People like you have actually gone crazy. Do you think that we are all blind or can't remember things that just recently happened? Chris Brown lost his endorsements and was arrested. For you to say that the backlash against Kanye is worse is because you are looking for any chance to excuse bad behavior of anybody black, and to attack anybody white. you are a sad sad excuse for a person.



  68. 68

    you're forgiven kanye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  69. 69

    Re: *Lil Lady Pants* – if i may counter.. joe wilson apologized once and said he would NOT do it again, and that was to the president of the us and he also has republicans/conservatives supporting that. i think thats what she was getting at.



  70. 70

    Re: Captain Howdy – hmm thats weird captin i didnt know blk beuaty spoke for all black people geez she must have gotten like some kind of poll of all the black people in america huh??stupid ass redneck stfu and beyonce is a way better artist then taylor get the fuck out of here the bitch shit is boring and lame who the fuck listens to country music but some toothless hicks in the south???



  71. 71

    i do not even see how all this became a fucking race issue. seriously, why does that card have to be played all the time?



  72. 72

    Re: Blk Beauty – - You're one fucked up chick. Beyonce and Kanye are both shit!! I'm sick of you guys always playing the race card.

    Grow the fuck up, I say that all the rappers/R&B artists should just stick to the BET awards if they don't want to see ANY other race win an award. It's not all always about you.



  73. 73

    I felt SO bad for him on Leno last night. He fucked up but everyone makes mistakes & everyone deserves a second chance.. well he does stupid shit a lot, but thats Kanye. He apologized, its done with. Plus the guy has awsome music, i dont care how much of an asshole he may be in person, as long as he keeps writing good music i will always be a huge fan of him.



  74. 74

    please dont pull the race card thats bs! we are all people we all as americans have the same rights. I love any race and so should u. Quit bringing on the hate that has been over with for qutie sometime if u didnt realize that its freakin 2009!



  75. 75

    Re: Captain Howdy – i see what youre saying, but racism still exists and that slavery comment was just ignorant. if someone kidnapped your relatives, beat the living shit out of them, and made them work for no pay for generations and i told you to get over it, id be an asshole. would you tell a person of the jewish faith to get over the holocaust? and yes both are on the same level of evil. let be more sensitive.



  76. 76

    Sadly, the race issue is being brought up by both white and black people. I've been on other websites where white people were saying Kanye is a racist and black people were saying that the media is being prejudiced against Kanye.



  77. 77

    go read up on people.com seriously. one minute it's saying that the details of their phone conversation are going to be kept private…yeah right…but you got taylor swift the one leaking all the details…i'm just sayin….all kanye has done between here and then has made a few unapologetic half ass apologies…she's totally pimping this shit out…fuck…we gonna have to go through this shit forever…and maybe she'll write a fucking album about it…
    you saw what she did to that jonas brother…

    double.fuck.



  78. 78

    Of course Tayor will accept his apology…what do you expect? she'll say NO! But you know… what, I don't care for Kanye's apology…His TRUE COLOR showed and I don't like it! I will NOT support him…or spend a penny on his songs or albums…and by the way…Kanye is only good when he collaborate with another artist…He can't do shit on his own…that's because HE SUCKS AND LOW CLASS!!!



  79. 79

    Nothing he can do can make me like him- ever. I hope he destroyed his career.



  80. 80

    He only called because he got outed on TV for not already doing so………..



  81. 81

    Re: coolasschickk – You said "Re: Blk Beauty – thank you. that's why i can't stand white people. what kanye did is not that big of a deal. MTV LOVED IT, IT MADE GREAT TV. ya dumb fucks. "
    __________________________________________

    You use "Pink" as your icon. You may want to rethink that since she came out and destroyed Kanye in an interview. Looks like you and your idol dissagree.



  82. 82

    BS I don't believe him. Everyone is pissed off at him thats why he's doing that. I don't think he's sorry. He's just sorry that people are not supporting him. He f'ed everything up and now he can't take it back. I won't buy his music. He really thinks he's the shitz.



  83. 83

    I actually HATED Kanye West until this incident. Now i like him.



  84. 84

    Re: Blk Beauty – - Damn! That is pretty Harsh… You should be ashamed of yourself. Please Calm Down! For me (I am White - Italian 2nd Generation!), it is not a race issue at all. It is about disrespect, no matter who it was. I did not belong to this blog when Chris beat up Rhianna, or I would have had something to say about it. Please do not bring race in this. Don't we already have enough of that in the world today??! It is our generation that maybe can stop all of the race hatred and try to get along. After all, it was our generation that elected Mr. Obama!…
    As far as the Wilson thing (I think it was Rude & Disrespectful) but, Mr. Obama took the high road and excepted his apology. I live in DC… Things have NOT calmed down about the situation, believe me!… That man shot himself in the head that night.
    So Please Blk Beauty, Chill! Take the High Road! Thanks For Listening & Good Luck to You! :-)



  85. 85

    plenty of people knew who taylor was before this. so she should not be thanking him. its not an issue of race, if a 19 yr olf innocent black teenager was on stage accepting her award and all excited about it and a grown ass 32 yr old white man charged the stage and stole the mic from her and started saying another white woman artist deserved it more, he would be called a jackass and rightfully so. and white people who not defend him. he would have some explaining to do!! kanye is 32 yrs old he needs to act like it! you dont see jay z doing that!! because adults dont do that. he needs some grace and kindness.. and for people saying it was just mtv its not that big of a deal… exactly!!! kanye shouldnt have goteen his panties in twist because of it. how immature. i loved kelly clarksons statement, you can have my moon man if it will shut you up! we all disgaree with things, but that doesnt mean we can jyst march up on a stage a say it. you just dont do that.



  86. 86

    Fuck Kanye!! He is one of the biggest morons in the world. Who the fuck cares who he think is better!!! It's none of his business!! I think Beyonce is great but there are others who are better. Kanye's mama raised a fucking piece of shit.

    I can't wait for Kanye to get his and trust me he will.



  87. 87

    PUHLEEEASE!
    Apology = Accepted
    REPUTATION = DENIED



  88. 88

    he still sucks



  89. 89

    Re: justme09 – actually im black an i listen to some country. leann rimes in fact.. but she can really sing. you should check it out. maybe you'd like her. im not a beyonce fan though… i want to hear deep uplifting music as a black female from a black aritsts. i feel her music is sophomoric at best. the lyrics are shallow and her singing about "put a ring on it" and im a diva" "ring the alarm" is not really music that id want my young future black daughter to listen to. its… i hate to say… low class music geared toward low class urban females.. beyonce can sing but she cannot write good lyics at all. beats are fun, but the content.. not so much. taylor cant sing very well, but her lyrics much better to listen to. beyonce has immature music IMO she's too old for that crap.



  90. 90

    Re: Blk Beauty – Seems like you picked two random stories out and made it a racial problem. Yes there are white people who are racist and there are black people who are racist…but lumping everyone from a particular group into one is just hypocritical.



  91. 91

    Wake up people! This is not that serious. Taylor Swift is profiting from this, Beyonce is profiting, even Kanye is profiting because we keep talking about him. His next album will still probably go platinum. So why is everyone so upset?



  92. 92

    hes like a little puppet running around making amends. taylor is getting her time and sympathy now and we all love her even more….aahh so what???



  93. 93

    no apology will ever let her get back her moment for her first VMA…



  94. 94

    Re: justme09 – yea but thats just your opinion. you might not like country music but tons of people do. you dont need to be so mean about it. tons of people hate rap music. i can think of plenty of people i could play "crazy in love" or "baby boy" or "bonnie & clyde" for and they would hate it. so dont be so rude. caling white people toothless hicks and crackers, im sure there are plenty of rude things to be said about balck people and rap music, you just dont need to go there. if a 32 yr old grown ass white man pulled this stunt, people would say the same thing. they'd tell him to lay off the alcohol, stop acting the like the world revolves around him and check himself. the behavior is whats disgusting.



  95. 95

    I love how this has now turned into a war of the races. Seriously, it has nothing to do with race. Thank you, all you douchebags who made it into a racism debate. Kanye West is a douchebag no matter what you say. Don't make it out like he's the victim here. He set himself up yet again for this stuff and now he has to deal with it. It's his own fault. And its better late than never that he apologized to Taylor Swift.



  96. 96

    Re: Lindsay Lohan – lol ur a lame ass bitch.



  97. 97

    I must admit that I'm very glad that he apologized to Taylor. I know the apology will never fix the damage he did to her first VMA award! She will always remember that moment and I hope that someday she can look back at it and laugh about it.

    I used to enjoy Kanye's music, but I don't think I'd be able to force myself to listen to him anymore. He is just one person that I'll never care for again. He is living proof that being a celebrity and bringing in those big bucks can give you a big head. He needs to come down off of his high horse and get a little more respect for other people.

    He is one person that I hope I never come into contact with.



  98. 98

    Re: Lindsay Lohan – lol white girls suck dick>black girls

    get on them knees herpe mouth bitch



  99. 99

    Re: Blk Beauty – hahaha. your a dumb bitch. black people do stuff to white people, white people do stuff to black people. and if you watched CNN then you would know abt the coverage that incident got!!! i really hate ignorant bitches who try to turn thing around into racial issues. the truth is there are different people everywhere and if you dont gett along with everyone then that doesnt mean youre a racist. thanks for your ignorant comment cuz i was really hopin to tear some one a new one!!!



  100. 100

    Re: Blk Beauty – duh if you heard abt it it was prolly from the news ya dumb bitch!!!ttyn
