After trash talking Britney Spears on Twitter about her new #1 single and how he "let her" have the top spot, Kanye West feels the need to clarify.
Because it's Kanye, some people assumed this was Taylor-Gate reloaded. But he was seriously not trying to start a feud with Spears, West insists.
Naturally, he took to Twitter again to rectify the situation.
I'MMA LET U BE #1: It was a joke, people!
Aside from his inability to spell Britney, and the fact that the Shift and 1 keys on his MacBook are going to fall off, his ramblings are fairly well reasoned, funny and self-deprecating. Mostly. Here's what the much-maligned rapper had to say:
Just saw that MSNBC said I tried to start a twitter war with Brittany.
This shit takes the air out my lungs sometimes from blogs to news reports… enough already!!! All I do is focus on my work.
There's a new lie everyday… a new media spin… I never got a watch with my face on it!!! A company tried to give that to me 9 yrs ago!
