Kanye Proves He’s No Monster

I had the distinct pleasure of waking up this morning and reading Kanye West speak the truth on Twitter.

Known for always speaking his mind, he touched topics such as the media dehumanizing him and the MTV fiasco with him interrupting Taylor Swift. I must say that although his actions on the awards raised eyebrows, including mine, I never viewed Kanye negatively.

Many people wrote him off at that very moment as we watched the beginning of a media massacre. Let’s be honest, how many people were aware of who Taylor Swift was before the Kanye stunt?

I  knew of  her, but her popularity overall, increased after that. She completely benefited from it, minus the humiliation. I sympathized with her, and Kanye as well.

I’m not trying to make excuses for him but it didn’t take long for people to overlook his talent and focus on his mistake. Looking at his tweets from this morning, it seems he has had a few slices of humble pie.

“@kanyewest: Man I love Twitter… I’ve always been at the mercy of the press but no more… The media tried to demonize me”

“@kanyewest: Some people’s truth is Kanye is racist… It’s not my truth but I do believe it’s my Karma…. walk with me…”

“@kanyewest: With the help of strong will, a lack of impathy, a lil alcohol and extremely distasteful & bad timing … I became George Bush over night”

“@kanyewest: I have a mission in life to bring truth and beauty through my music and the visuals that anchor around it”

“@kanyewest: …taking a 15 second blip the mdeia have successfully painted the image of the “ANGRY BLACK MAN’ The King Kong theory”

“@kanyewest: Yes I was that guy. A 32 year old child.”

“@kanyewest: 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.”

“@kanyewest: MTV? JAY LENO? BEYONCE? ALL FORMS OF MEDIA? TAYLOR? KANYE WEST? Who gained? Who lost?”

“@kanyewest: Walk with me people… let’s break this down for real now. I might get in trouble again lol?”

With the 2010 VMA’s a week away it seems as though Kanye is about a year late with his apology. However, isn’t it always better late than never?
