Kanye Goes on

Twitter Rampage,

Seeks Forgiveness

9/4/2010 3:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Just a few days shy of the one-year anniversary of his infamous Taylor Swift-interrupting rant, Kanye West decided to complete the Twitter step of his 12-step forgiveness recovery plan ... by unleashing a flurry of tweets to express forgiveness, regret and nearly every emotion in between.

0904-kanye-west-twitter
Kanye posted nearly 100 tweets in a little over two hours. It started innocently enough with: "Man I love Twitter... I've always been at the mercy of the press but no more...  The media tried to demonize me."

Then it moved on to: "Remember in Anchor Man when Ron Burgandy cursed on air and the entire city turned on him? But this wasn't a joke. This was & is my real life."

And: "People tweeted that they wish I was dead... No listen.  They wanted me to die people. I carry that. I smile and take pictures through that."

Then he finally brought up 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."

Later: "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 ... 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."

After several more it ended with, "I'm sorry Taylor." 

Kanye has gone Twitter silent since then.

A few other celebrities have snorted Ambien and gone on a Tweeting binge before.

It makes people really social and chatty before they revert to their regular personality.

"why is she on TV?!"    

WTF...why MTV invites Kanye this year? It is so disrespectful to the viewers!
Beyonce had said last year that she knew what was about to happened...and and we saw her laughing. Than...she gave Taylor her moment back? Give me a break. Taylor should have her moment at HER moment...she didn’t need any charity from Beyonce.
Everything was planed and executed…because they think that only blacks are the best in music...and they want to diminish any white singer.
Kanye cannot really sing but I like some of Beyonce songs...unfortunately the videos?...there is no artistry at all…just ass…all black singers videos are about asses.
I hope that this year Florence will win…if it has to be Lady Gaga then hopefully it will be "Bad Romance" and not "Telephone" with that b*** Beyonce in it.
Anyway whoever wins I will find out the next day… because I’m not watching. There is so much BS on tv, it’s time to say “enough”
Kanye should not be invited – I hope he will be boo from stage.

Wow! The man didn't KILL ANYONE, he said what most were probably thinking when country Swift won that award. She cool, but not the best. I know they say don't blame it on the alcohol, but he did swush a bunch down his throat before the rants. LOL! Wait! That's it! We can BLAME IT on the al al al al al al cohol baby! LOL! Thanks to Jaime Foxx song at least:) Just don't make the same mistake twice Kanye, then ya good to go!

I would say forgive him; however, that wasn't the first time he's pulled this crap. He does it time and time again and then always expects people to forgive him. How about we try being a little more humble and not such a douchebag when it comes to other people winning awards..stop stealing other people's spotlights!

fame is easy to obtain but hard to hold on to. Sorry Kayne it's over, you scared whitey and that is the end of it. Anyone hip does not give a **** but anyone hip does not buy your ****ty albums......teens/kids do and they really hate the whole race hatin thing. Whether you intended or not you were an aggressive black man accosting a young white woman....sounds like bull****, I agree but only you can say for certain....have yo **** music sales gone down?
U ****ed up dude and u squandered your shot at fame get used to it and get comfortable on the c-list w/Chris Brown, Jesse James and Snooki.

Also your music was OK at best so be happy you had the run you did, the world needs ditch diggers you know.

wasted days and wasted nights    

Absolutely, he should be forgiven for what he did on stage last year. He has paid the price and made amends and it would be nice for Taylor to publicly put this past both of them.

I downloaded his CD once. What crap. I like the idea that he pushes the envelope of originality. But to call him talented' or call his music good, come on. The only track I've ever liked om him is Gold Digger, and even then it was only average. I don't see what all the KW hype was ever about in the first place.
