Taylor Swift Receives Apology From Kanye West

SPL126337_007Taylor Swift was spotted greeting fans in Times Square as she made her way back to her hotel  on  September 15.
The “Should’ve Said No” songstress was all smiles as she signed autographs and posed for pictures following an action-packed morning schedule.
As for the tension between Taylor and Kanye West following the ‘incident’ at the MTV Video Music Awards, Mr. West has reportedly made a personal apology to the country crooner.
Taylor told ABC News Radio, “Kanye did call me, and he was very sincere in his apology, and I accepted that apology.”
Kanye also apologized publicly on last night’s “Jay Leno Show.” “I’m just ashamed that my hurt caused someone else’s hurt — and I don’t try to justify it because I was just in the wrong. I need to, after this, take some time off and just analyze how I’m going to make it through the rest of this life, how I’m going to improve. Because I am a celebrity, and that’s something I have to deal with.

Kanye West’s Apology to Taylor Swift

58335134It was one of the most awkward moments of the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, when Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech for her Best Female Video award, and declared that he thought Beyonce Knowles should’ve won.
And in the aftermath of the evening’s events, the “Love Lockdown” rapper apparently saw the error of his ways, as he issued an apology to the 17-year-old country singer.
Via his blog, Kanye repented, saying, “I’m sooooo sorry to Taylor Swift and her fans and her mom [Andrea]. I spoke to her mother right after and she said the same thing my mother would’ve said. She is very talented! I like the lyrics about being a cheerleader and she’s in the bleachers! I’m in the wrong for going on stage and taking away from her moment!”
He continued, “Beyonce’s video was the best of this decade!!! I’m sorry to my fans if I let you guys down!!!!! I’m sorry to my friends at MTV. I will apologize to Taylor 2mrw. Welcome to the real world!!!! Everybody wanna booooo me but I’m a fan of real pop culture!!! No disrespect but we watchin’ the show at the cribe right now cause…. Well you know!!!!
