Kanye West Calls Taylor Swift

After his heartfelt public apology on The Jay Leno Show last night, Kanye West has finally personally reached out to pop singer Taylor Swift.

According to the Associated Press, Kanye called the teen country star after her appearance on The View. During the show, which aired live this morning, Swift said she had yet to hear from Ye first hand, despite all of his three public apologies.

Representatives for The View told the AP that Ye called Swift immediately following her appearance on the episode. “After the show he spoke personally to the country music superstar via telephone and has apologized to the 19-year-old singer,” a statement from The View read. “She has accepted Mr. West’s apology. The contents of the phone call are to remain private.”

As previously reported Ye interrupted Swift’s acceptance speech during last Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards (September 13), to declare Beyonce the real winner. He was later asked to leave the ceremony.

During his public apology on Jay Leno last night, Kanye said “I immediately knew in this situation that it was wrong, it wasn’t a spectacle, it was someone’s emotion I stepped on and it was rude period.” –Elan Mancini

        “NOW I KNO UR NOT FROM THE WEST COAST THE BEST COAST. ANY ONE IN NWA WOULD NOT HAVE HOPPED UP ON STAGE AND CLOWED A LIL ASS GIRL. ITS ABOUT RESPECT OUT HERE”

        ^^^I pretty sure he was referring to the mentality that cat’s had back in that era of Hip Hop, which isn’t necessarily region-based.

        But, what part of the West Coast are you in? Homie, I live in L.A., right off of Slauson & Western Ave. The last thing popping around here is “respect”. 13 year old girls having kids, every other youngster is gay (male & female), young niggas are shooting @/killing each other over streets & colors (just happened around the corner 2 days ago) & the police treat folks like they’re zookeepers. I can’t speak for other cities, but in Los Angeles, there’s not too much respect from my vantage point…

        • westcoastaggie

          Yeah Tony is right about that “respect” in L.A.

    • Gloveson

      i’d say that was part of the apology, “lets do a track together…….they don’t hav autotune in country music do they?”

  • ILLWILL

    Danm Hate u got a point there, the vma is a fucking joke anyway, plus its always sum stupid shit going on at them awards, yea it was dumb but why is this such a big deal!

    *phone rings*

    Taylor Swift: Hello?

    Kanye West: Uh, hi. This Kanye.

    TS: Oh, hello Kanye.

    *mom in background*: What? Fuck that n****r! Hang up, rite now goddamnit! Tell ‘em we ain’t wantin’ what he sellin,!

    KW: Yo, yo, hold up. Yo. My bad, I, I got problems, and, people can’t tell me nuthin’. But-

    *mom in background*: You tell that good-for-nothin’ rapper, to GO TO HELL!

    TS: Umm, my mom said “go to”-mom, I don’t wanna curse.

    *mom in background*: SAY IT!

    TS: Hell. My mom says “go to hell”, Kanye.

    *mom in background*: AND AFRICA!

    TS: And Africa, Kanye. Sorry.

    KW: Damn, how could you be so heartless?

    *TS hangs up*
    *click*

    KW*to Amber Rose*: Baby, can you cook me some fish sticks?…..

    • HNIC

      LMAO! Funny script!

      Personally, regardless of people hating, I think that Kanye did the right thing by apologizing. It was the mature thing to do & if he wants to salvage his career & future sells, it was a smart thing to do, from a business standpoint.

      No I don’t agree with people using racial slurs to degrade him or my race. Those people can kiss my chocolaty ass. But, at the same time, I’m sure that they’ve been having those views, way before this incident, so this has just given them an avenue to vent & expose their hatred. I don’t give a fuck, cause; those cowards won’t dare say that shit to my face. Life goes on.

        @iceman

        What’s good, juice?!

        Good looks on the joke.

        But, I have to clarify that cats wasn’t saying niggas in L.A. don’t apologize, I was responding to some other dude talking about how we (“the west coast”) doesn’t exhibit certain behaviors out of “respect”, which wasn’t correct. @ least how he put it.

        Maybe somebody else did say something like that, though, but speaking for self, nah, I’m a humble cat. It may take a minute, but when I’m wrong, I’m wrong. I have no problem admitting it & saying “I’m sorry”.

        Real talk, I’m married. I say sorry way more than I want @ the house alone, the rest is easy lol.

  • alderman j

    Kanye just earned himself a favor from MTV. That stunt caused the ratings to go through the roof, that might have been the best move he ever made!!! The racist clowns that comment on blogs wouldnt dare say the stuff they say on blogs to KANYES face!! Most racists are closet racists, so the internet is the perfect place to show there true colors, but this was not a race issue at all, KANYE is an asshole, but it has nothing to do with his race. Next Kanye album i guarantee MTV is going to market it like crazy, there will probably be some kind of kanye day or week, and they will play his videos back to back in the weeks heading up to his album. This is just a guess i have no facts to back this up, but i just think MTV dreamed that up in exchange for some free marketing, SEARCHING FOR THAT MADONNA-BRITNEY moment……….. It worked!!!

    • http://XXLmag.com PerfectPoints357

      Good point A if anything Ye just helped her out i gurantee her sales gettin ready to jump. The whole thing was MTV orchestrated.

  • General

    Kanye did the right thing. He made a mistake and owned up to it. What Fox news and all the other right wing fringe lunatics of this country want is to use this as a race issue, but it had nothing to with race…

    Ye did the smart thing by not taking the bait afterwards with all the racist responses, because thats exactly what they wanted him to do…besides, unless one of those cowards is willing to say it face to face…fuck them

  • Enlightened

    Fuck Kanye West

    The phone call went something like that I’m sure…
    That was too funny, the worst thing is her mom might have actually said that shit.. let me stop..

  • RL

    Among the many issues Kanye has to work through, he really must address his sense of manhood. Real men, good men do not behave like DIVAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Build your self worth then respect will follow.

  • kingequality

    Some more bullshit to keep us focusing on something other than whats really going on in the world its the vma’s people it aint even the grammy’s plus that was a stunt anyway kanye was too drunk to perform so they had him do something to still keep the ratings up

  • niggafrommemphis

    fuck kanye,he would earn my respect if he would come out the closet and off the pipe.and if what i’m hearing about jay z gettin pissed at beyonce for letting that girl get up there is true,maybe she will leave his ass. jay is the nigga,but when u hang around undercover fags like kanye too long,your bound to pick up their ways,besides,beyonce don’t want a child with his features anyway.by the way,bp3 ain’t all that,fuck kanye!

  • Beergangsta

    Fucker is weird! Let Beyonce defind her own self. I know that’s your boy Heffer. She would have not done no thing like this. Go to Rehab Bitch! Nobody owe you shit!

  • BIGNAT

    kanye gets no respect because he spoke his mind then said sorry that was wrong. like when said gw didn’t care about black people. i thought kanye was one the realest people ever. i would have said yeah i am sorry to taylor but i was defending beyonce. i am with kanye on this one beyonce known all over the world i still don’t know who taylor is.

    • $ykotic/Don McCaine

      Like we don’t know there were MANY people in the audience who felt the same way, ‘Ye just spoke up.

      How come nobody is putting Lil Mama on blast for riding?

  • Benjamin

    You people are the racist ones yea kanye made a mistake was it racist i really dont know id like to think not because i like kanye. I do know if the roles were reversed and a white man did that to a black woman it would be ten times worse with the race. Some of you are just racist idiots like hate who posted 1st people like you just keep racism going and make your own race look bad. Grow up people.

    • http://tonygrands@blogspot.com Tony Grands

      @Benjamin

      “You people…”

      “your race…”

      Freudian slip? Highly doubtful. You sound like a racist, friendo.

    • $ykotic Don McCaine

      “You people are the racist ones”

      “because i like kanye”

      So you think liking Kanye or rap gives you a pass?

      “I do know if the roles were reversed and a white man did that to a black woman it would be ten times worse with the race”

      That’s been going on FOR YEARS. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?

      “make your own race look bad”

      hate IS YOUR RACE.

      Your cover has been blown.

  • Beergangsta

    i dont get it. what did kanye call taylor swift?

  • IndyKid

    Wow, ‘hate’. You’re a total idiot. It sucks that you’re post was first so everybody that looks down now has to lower there i.q. just by reading your retarded words. I hope you never have children that are as dumb as you are.

    WHATS DONE IS DONE. KANYE’S A DUMB NIGGA PLAIN AND SIMPLE. AS MUCH CLASS AS BEYONCE SHOWED, THATS HOW MUCH KANYE LACKED. TAYLOR SWIFT DESERVED A LOT BETTER THAN THIS IDIOT RUINING HER MOMENT

  • $ykotic Don McCaine

    Again, the man stood up for what he believed in, which most people will not do.

    But he chose the wrong forum to express his thoughts.

    For years MTV has been jerking well deserved artists for their “chosen” ones, so let’s stop acting like this is an isolated incident.

    What Kanye did do, was give all of these closet bigots a moment to get their rocks off. Anonymous or famous.

    And by the way, Taylor’s in no way immune to criticism or hatred. She’s a celebrity. For what anyone knows, THIS COULD HAVE BEEN HER KARMA MOMENT.

    • TheRefriedMexican

      YOUR RIGHT MTV HAS OVERLOOKED AND OFTEN REWARDED A MOON MAN TO A LESS DESERVING ARTIST. I MEAN THEY DO IT ALL THE TIME! IT’S A POPULARITY CONTEST NOT AN ARTISTIC AWARDS SHOW AS IT SHOULD BE. BUT STILL. THIS GIVES KANYE NO RIGHT TO RUIN TAYLOR SWIFTS MOMENT. IF WE WERE TO HAVE AN ARTIST PROTEST EVERY TIME MTV FUCKED UP AN AWARD. THE SHOW WOULD NEVER END! YOUR JUST LOOKING TO MAKE AN EXCUSE FOR KANYE’S CHILDISH BEHAVIOR!

        “YOUR RIGHT MTV HAS OVERLOOKED AND OFTEN REWARDED A MOON MAN TO A LESS DESERVING ARTIST. I MEAN THEY DO IT ALL THE TIME!”

        So it’s OK to do that. So what the man said was true. He just did it the wrong way, right? So I’m not just looking for an excuse.

        Because what you said is what I said:

        “he chose the wrong forum to express his thoughts.”
        “THIS GIVES KANYE NO RIGHT TO RUIN TAYLOR SWIFTS MOMENT.”

        Same point, different words.

  • cbs

    It’s Mtv. Who watches that shit anymore? I want to see him jump on stage and do that shit to a man, instead of some little white girl. He would get his ass beat right out of his faggot ass silk shirt. And whats with that bald bitch he hangs out with?

    • stoneyisland

      she has both male and females sex organs she is a hemaphodite:) Kanye is gayier then gay, even real gay dudes be like Kanye is super gay:)

  • stoneyisland

    You know you done fucked up when the President Of The United States of America calls you a jackass………………….Hopefully Kanye will move to another country so we no longer have to hear from this douche bag again

  • $ykotic/Don McCaine

    And don’t get it twisted.

    If this was a publicity stunt, to sell records & get ratings, WE ALL SHOULD CAUSE AN UPROAR AND LET THEM KNOW WE AIN’T HAVING THAT BULLSH*T ANYMORE. STRAIGHT UP AND DOWN.

  • http://www.google.com Stimoroller

    I admire Kanye’s courage, a lotta motherfuckers only dream of pullin a stunt like that and Kanye just seazed the moment and told it like it is. The world would be a better place if we had real honest niggas like Kanye tellin bitches and niggas to they face they aint shit. If he was a faggot like most of you suggest he would have wispered to his bald girlfriend instead of going for the stage.

  • abdulnasir

    Regardless whether u think Kanye was right or wrogn, with he did was still stupid! If he had been nominated in the female category, fine, but nigga wasn’t. Save that shit till after the show or when u get an award and get to give a speech, dumbass!

  • http://www.myspace.com/atlatino404 El Tico Loco

    Is it bias or is it my real nigga spidey sense, to see Kanye’s little moment as plain douchebaggery but when ODB did the same thing I was like “Yeah! Wu Tang for eva mothafuckas!” Could it be that ODB didn’t give a fuck and meant it and Kanye did it for show?

  • GIFT

    Look people. You can say what you want, but imagine if you were up on stage to recieve an mtv award for the first time. You are still in your teens at that, and kanye west or whatever comes up and fucks up yout whole vibe and acceptance speech. If it were me, I would of knocked Ye the fuck out for one thing. White girl or not, it was fucked up. The media doesn’t neccessarily need to make it news forever and a day, but it was not a good move on Ye’s part at all. it was more ignorant than funny. Niggas can get mad at this comment if they won’t but it’s the fuckin truth.
