On Friday Kanye West unveiled a new song, “Devil in a New Dress,” but his tweets about Taylor Swift over the weekend got even more attention. West apologized, once again, for embarrassing the country star at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards. “I want to win [her fans’] hearts back so I can continue to bring my take on culture to the masses with a clean opinion,” West wrote on his Twitter. “It starts with this… I’m sorry Taylor.”
“I wrote a song for Taylor Swift that’s so beautiful and I want her to have it. If she won’t take it then I’ll perform it for her,” West wrote. “She had nothing to do with my issues with award shows. She had no idea what hit her. She’s just a lil girl with dreams like the rest of us. She deserves the apology more than anyone… Who am I to run on stage? I would never ever again in a million years do that. Sorry to let you down. 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? Yes I was that guy. A 32 year old child. When I woke up from the crazy nightmare I looked in the mirror and said GROW UP KANYE … I take the responsibility for my actions. 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.”
“Devil in a New Dress” will reportedly appear on Kanye’s upcoming fifth album, and not his five-song Watch the Throne EP with Jay-Z.
