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?

First of Ryan you are a loser... You don't have to be a drug dealer or on welfare to listen to Kanye... If you don't listen to Kanye fine but don't try to say only ghetto ppl listen to him... And I can name a few songs from Kanye and I'm not a drug dealer or on welfare... Jesus walks, through the wire, touch the sky, I heard them say, workout plan to name a few... So do us readers a favor and go sit the fuck in corner and think about the shit you say...


well kinda sort of...although not completely but it did rise her a little


I SERIOUSLY cannot name a single song that Kanye has ever sung; but I'm not a ghetto drug dealer; welfare baby factory either. Sorry, just telling the truth.


Jeanette: you are a dumbazz. She was on stage for winning an award. I don't think that she was an unknown artist. Kanye actually got more fame out of the situation than Taylor did ... she was, and is, on her way up and Kanye is on his way down. No one can name a Kanye song; but MILLIONS can name a lot of Taylor's songs. ENOUGH SAID.


Kanye said that Beyonce's video was one of the greatest of all time... are you SERIOUS???!!! She was in a leotard that showed her TREMENDOUSLY HUGE HIPS and the song was about withholding sex until a guy put a ring on your finger. What a FANTASTIC message to send out to young girls: "You are only as good as the man that you can force into marrying you." How about sending out a message to get an education and you don't need a man. Patience is a virtue; if a man is meant to be, it will happen. Don't marry a man to get to his money. J-Z


sorry guys but its true
she gained fame through the
sorrow of 2009. the least she could
do is say thanks.


KANYE: Re-think suicide. I'll send you a gun... what is your address???


Kanye is a stupid gorilla who cant even make sense, let alone make a career as big as Taylors is.
He's a stupid little rich boy trying to act ghetto and needs to learn when to shut the fuck up and stop acting like a 13 year old emo girl whose never had any attention.


iam so freaking tired about taylor swift and kanye the only reason she's famouseis we felt sorry for her and she won all those awards i think both of them needs to get over with it its so old.


What a fool. Aint u famous enough already. Do something better with yuor life.
