Kanye West: ‘I’ve written a song for Taylor Swift’

Rapper takes to Twitter a week ahead of VMA ceremony

Kanye West has renewed his apology to Taylor Swift over his stage invasion at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards ahead of next Sunday’s (September 12) 2010 ceremony.

The rapper has also said he has written a new song for the country singer.

At last year’s ceremony West invaded the stage as Swift was accepting the Best Female Video award. He took her microphone from her and used it to praise Beyonce, who was also nominated.


West apologised to the singer after the incident, but today (4) has once again geared up his apologies, this time on Twitter.

Writing on his official page, Twitter.com/kanyewest, he wrote of the incident: “With the help of strong will, a lack of empathy, a little alcohol and extremely distasteful and bad timing I became George Bush overnight.”

He added: “Remember in [Will Ferrel film] Anchorman when Ron Burgundy cursed on air and the entire city turned on him? But this wasn’t a joke. This was and is my real life.”

He went on to explain that he had written new music for Swift. “I wrote a song for Taylor Swift that’s so beautiful and I want her to have it,” he wrote. “If she won’t take it then I’ll perform it for her.”

He also assured people that next weekend he wouldn’t be repeating the invasion. “I would never ever again in a million years do that,” he wrote. “It is distasteful to cut people off as a general rule. What’s the point of dressing tastefully if I’m going to act the complete opposite? When I woke up from the crazy nightmare I looked in the mirror and said, ‘Grow up Kanye‘. I’m sorry Taylor.”
