A week before the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards (the award show in 2009 where Kanye West ran up on stage in the middle of Taylor Swift winning the award for Best Female Video), Kanye opens up about the incident on his relatively new Twitter account.
new found humility … who am I to run on stage? I would never ever
again in a million years do that. Sorry to let you down.
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?
]]>Yes I was that guy. A 32 year old child.
I woke up from the crazy nightmare I looked in the mirror and said GROW
UP KANYE … I take the responsibility for my actions
I am not a bad person. Even in that moment I was only trying to do good but people don’t always need my help.
Beyonce didn’t need that. MTV didn’t need that and Taylor and her family friends and fans definitely didn’t want or need that.
These tweets have no manager, no publicist , no grammar checking… this is raw
Humanity and Empathy are 2 of the 4 principles at facebook. Those were the 2 principles I was missing on that evening
Why are there so many tweets? Well this isn’t a simple subject. There are layers to this beyond me running on stage.
In case we don’t say it enough: God bless Twitter.
The 2010 MTV Video Music Awards air live on Sunday, Sept. 12 on MTV and are hosted by comedienne Chelsea Handler.
