Kanye West apologizes to Taylor Swift in the stalkeriest way (not about race)
Two opinions crossing my mind at the moment: Kanye West is ridiculous, and Twitter is dumb.
Highly unoriginal opinions to be sure, but still, I possess them. Hey, remember when Kanye pulled that stunt with Taylor Swift at the VMAs like a year ago? Of course, we all do. Is it worth talking about anymore? No. And yet, here I am, about to talk about it again, and why? Because Kanye West is being ridiculous on that dumb Twitter.
Like a stalkery ex-boyfriend, Kanye's Twitterings reveal he just can't stop talking about Taylor: how bad he feels about the demise of their relationship, how he still has hope that she will forgive him. Tweet, tweet, tweet. Is he being a creep? Is he looking to rustle up a little more attention for his wilting career (which, to be fair, may also rustle up a little for hers as it also grows a bit limp)? Is it just a tangent in his nonsensical ramblings about race which are not actually about race? (Likely.) Judge for yourself. And Taylor, when a dude says he's written you a song, it usually means it's time for a good stern caution to stay away, sometimes in the form of a restraining order. Yowza.
A glimpse into Kanye's Twitter State of Mind. We all do, Kanye. We all do. DO NOT ACCEPT AN ABUSER'S GIFTS. It will send him mixed messages. What he's trying to do to you here, Taylor, is infantilize you. DO NOT ACCEPT HIS GIFTS! MUAH-HAHAHAH. Yes, is some way, we do. (Note to Taylor: This is the abuser's attempt to angle the situation as you and the abuser against the world. Do not accept his song!)
Mmmkay. Someone's up late drinking. Taylor, girl, I've had abusive boyfriends. This is how they talk at daybreak after a night of chugging a case cheap beers, alone, on their couch. See what I'm saying? The abuser, drunk on Black Label, wants you to feel sorry for him. Does Kanye drink Black Label? No matter... you get my point. Where is he going with this? Uhhh... Ahh, this conversation he's made about race is about an issue that is not about race. Phew! He's distracted himself. Taylor - you're in the clear. Kanye has come out of the closet. Taylor - you're in the clear.
Kanye continues to update us on every minute - about Taylor, about Beyonce, about De Niro, before explaining...
...and then shit gets positively nutty. But again, to bring it to a bottom line:
Did you hear that?
A call to the haters.
So is it time for us all to move on? His next series ofTweets, written two days later, seem to say so.
