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?

Kanye helped her... I personally love Taylor swift but after that she was everywhere!!!!! She knows she milked it just a little... But hey no judging bc I'd do the same... People take his being a douchebag but honestly I find it funny... He's like one of those guys who try too hard to be a a$$H.... But I bet he's not... And common give him a break at least he says what he feels... She seems a little fake to me now... Sorry :-/


Fuck kanye!!


Kanye is a douchebag to pick on a young woman like that, no matter if she can sing or not. Personally, I USED to LOVE Kanye's music and once I saw him do that (I saw it LIVE), NEVER AGAIN!! I just flip the station any time he comes on. That was so rude & inconsiderate of him.... being wasted and bouncing on stage is bad enough, but then to interrupt her and slam her???? KANYE IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE A TOTAL DOUCHEBAG!!! Let him continue to be an arrogant, pompous azzhle and keep him in Hollywood because Chi-town DOESN'T want him back!!!!!


ITA Laura. Lets be honest. I love Tay. She's a great role model for girls. She writes and composes her own stuff and she does look or act like a crackwhore. If she is, at least its out of the public eye. But lets be real. Her music all sounds the same. And her voice is okay but nothing dazzling. She's blonde, white, tall and pretty so that gets her further than most. Kanye did her the biggest favor in the world because had he not been awesome douchebag self, people would not be stuck up her butt like that. She milked that symapthy for all it was worth. And in the end it only made Kanye even more awesome. This is some of the best stuff he's ever done. A toast to the douchebags indeed!


it totally did! she played the victim card for a whole year, so of course it helped her!
