Kanye West’s apology on his blog in all caps shows he still has some major anger issues. In the first place, he needed to apologize to Taylor Swift, not her mother. When he says” she said the same thing my mother would have said”, it is clear that this is a sympathy ploy for people to remember that his mother Donda West died tragically. The reference to his mother also reflects a narcissism. What he did has nothing to do with his mother. He is talking about Taylor Swift’s mother and then inappropriately interject his own mother into the mix. This is as inappropriate as his bad behavior at the VMA’s.
When he says “she is very talented like the lyrics about being a cheerleader in the bleachers” he is definitely poking fun at Taylor condescendingly calling her on her “cheerleader” lyric. If this isn’t hostility and sarcasm I don’t know what else is. Instead of apologizing to Taylor he still manages to get in another dig.
While he says “I’m in the wrong for going on stage and taking away Taylor’s moment”, note his choice of words “ I’m in the wrong “ instead of saying I apologize.” He cannot seem to humble himself enough to say those words.
He still manages to stick to his agenda as he disconcertingly says “ BEYONCES VIDEO WAS THE BEST OF THIS DECADE” followed by 4 exclamation marks to get his point across angrily and forcefully.
When he says that he will apologize to Taylor Swift tomorrow and writes it out 2MRW it says it all. It is not an apology. It is disrespectful! He needed to apologize to Taylor now, immediately- tonight 2NYT not tomorrow or 2MRW.
When he said that Outcast deserved the award over him, preceded by the statement that Taylor is very very, very. (3 verys) talented with 4 exclamation marks followed by the words “ I’m still happy for Taylor”. The operative word being “Still”. Does that mean that he is “still happy for Taylor” even though Beyonce didn’t win? No it doesn’t.
What he is in essence saying is that he is Not happy for Taylor and that she did not deserve the award, as after all he presented the award to Outkast and they deserved the award over him ( once again reflecting his narcissism).
Then Kanye validates exactly what I am talking about by stating “THAT’S THE WAY IT IS” followed by with 9 angry exclamation marks.
Then he says” I’m not crazy yall. Just real sorry for that. “ The only thing he is sorry about is the fact that his fans are completely turned off.
Then he has the audacity to end that statement with 6 exclamation marks as he says I really feel “ bad for Taylor “Must respect.”
He doesn’t feel bad for Taylor because if he did, he would not wait until 2MRW to apologize. Instead he would apologize 2NYT. What he feels bad about is the fact that he was called out for his horrible behavior and now he is trying to spin it but it is not working.
