Actually, it was more like an open letter to Kanye - a badass one.
I love this part of the letter (in verbatim - i.e. EXPLICIT LANGUAGE WARNING):
What happened to you as a child?? Did you not get hugged enough?? Something must have happened to make you this way and I think we’re all just curious as to what would make a grown man go on national television and make a talented artist, let alone teenager, feel like shit. I mean, I’ve seen you do some pretty shitty things, but you just keep amazing me with your tactless, asshole ways. It’s absolutely fascinating how much I don’t like you. I like everyone. I even like my asshole ex that cheated on me over you…which is pretty odd since I don’t even personally know you. The best part of this evening is that you weren’t even up for THIS award and yet you still have a problem with the outcome. Is winning a moon man that much of a life goal?? You can have mine if it will shut you up. Is it that important, really??You go, girl!
She posted this yesterday at 4:16 AM, so she must have been holding it in since 6:30ish Sunday night. She could also be discussing it with her friends and decided to post this letter afterwards. Either way, this is full of the things that I omitted (e.g. the curse words) from my own blog post.
She ended her post with this:
I wouldn't be surprised if this were true - that Kanye may have been bitter about a teenage country singer outselling him.
Taylor Swift, you outsell him ….that’s why he’s bitter. You know I love your work! Keep it up girl!
I do think Kanye's childhood and upbringing may have something to do with his egotistical behaviour, but I think he was over-indulged or over-hugged when he was a kid. He didn't lack anything other than a whole lot of money. I think he was loved too much. This, in turn, made him believe that only his opinion matters.
I will say it again because it is most likely true: he may have apologized to everyone he pissed off, but he will do this again. He will ruin someone's moment again because he doesn't agree with it. His ego demands it.
