Kanye West Takes Credit for Success of Taylor Swift

by at . Comments

You're welcome, Taylor Swift.

This is the message Kanye West sent on the radio show Mojo in the Morning yesterday, once again bringing up his rude behavior at the 2009 MTV Music Awards and implying it "spawned" the global success Swift has since enjoyed.

Said Kanye:

Without this incident, would Taylor Swift even have a career at this point?!? Kanye West isn't certain.

"I feel like when Taylor was getting all those magazine covers, she was all good then. I feel completely empathetic and sympathize with that moment of her feeling bad, that spawned her to have one million magazine covers and be the most popular artist in the world, but in that moment of her feeling bad, I do feel bad about being the cause of that."

Only Kanye West can aim for an apology, and end up taking credit for the career of another artist.

Are you buying it at all? Do you think Kanye's interruption has played any role at all in Swift's album sales and/or magazine covers?
