Kanye West Trash Talks Britney on Twitter

by at . Comments

Kanye West pulled a Kanye West and trash talked Britney Spears and her #1 single, "Hold it Against Me," on Twitter. Jokingly, we think. Mostly.

"Yo Britney, I'm really happy for you and I'mma let you be #1, but me and Jay-Z's single is one of the best songs of all time! LOL,” Kanye wrote.

West's Tweet, of course, is a reference to his infamous Taylor Swift MTV VMA speech hijacking and to Kanye’s new song "H.A.M." (featuring Jay-Z).

While West later removed the Tweet, Spears' manager Adam Leber appeared none too impressed when he responded on the pop singer's behalf.

"Thanks for 'letting' us be #1," Leber wrote. "Much appreciated."

West later apologized for it, telling fans, "On a serious note I'm truly happy for Britney Spears. No hate in 2011... I thought LOL signified a joke."

Typically yes, but when you're a total loose cannon, sometimes the public won't automatically assume you're lighthearted or poking fun at yourself.

In any case, these guys aren't kidding about taking town Brit.

I miss it here so much! I love it so much! It makes me it's kinda like bittersweet coming here because I used to live here for two years. And when I come here, it's like, man, I wish I had my apartment here still.
