Taylor Swift on The View: Kanye West Still Hasn’t Reached Out (VIDEO)
Earlier this morning Taylor Swift appeared on The View to discuss her career, the VMAs, and, of course, the now infamous Kanye Incident. That is, when Kanye West interrupted Taylor’s Best Female Video Award acceptance speech to let the world know that, not Swift, but Beyonce deserved the award instead. Which, while this blogger might technically agree on, was beyond rude and a total jackass of a move. In other words, standard Kanye. Since then, we’ve had the opportunity to hear Kanye’s side of the story on his blog, Leno, and just about any other platform he’s found himself on.
So now we have Taylor Swift’s reaction. Responding to questions from The View, Swift detailed her thought process of the event: “I think my overall thought process was something like, ‘Wow I can’t believe I won. This is awesome. Don’t trip and fall. I’m going to get to thank the fans, this is so cool — oh, Kanye West is here. Kanye West is here, cool haircut, what are you doing there? And then ouch, and then I guess I’m not going to get to thank the fans.”
Soon after, Swift was backstage fighting back tears. “I’m not gonna say that I wasn’t riled by it. I had to perform live five minutes later, so I had to get myself back to the place where I could perform.” And that’s exactly what she did. Minutes later she charmed those in attendance with a spectacular rendition of “You Belong With Me”.
As to Kanye, who on Leno promised a face-to-face apology, Swift remarked, “he has not personally reached out or anything.” Ouch.
