Kanye says he made Taylor Swift a star
London, Nov 9 (IANS) Singer Kanye West believes his behaviour towards Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2009 helped make the country singer a bigger star.
Although Swift won the award for the best female video, West says she still wasn’t quite famous, until he walked onto the stage and said that Beyonce Knowles should have won instead of Swift.
While the rapper has admitted his behaviour was a little uncalled for, he now claims it helped make the country singer twice as famous.
‘I feel completely empathetic and sympathise with that moment of her feeling bad, the moment 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,’ femalefirst.co.uk quoted Kanye as saying.
