Kanye West finally apologizes to Taylor Swift, writes her a songFILE - In this Sept. 13, 2009 file photo, singer Kanye West takes the microphone from singer Taylor Swift as she accepts the "Best Female Video" award during the MTV Video Music Awards in New York. West is still feeling the pain over his trophy grab from Taylor Swift last year, and he’s expressing his pain all over Twitter. West has unleashed a torrent of emotions on his official Twitter on Saturday, Sept. 4, 2010, acknowledging he was wrong for taking an award from the country sweetheart at the MTV Video Music Awards. But he says he "bled hard." He says he had to cancel his tour with Lady Gaga and even lost employees. (AP Photo/Jason DeCrow, File) (Credit: AP)

Kanye West apologized to Taylor Swift over the weekend on Twitter. The apology was, of course, for his drunken ambushing of Swift’s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, sullying the spotlight of the industry’s preeminent sweetheart. And though the act of remorse is about a year too late, West offset what he lacks in timing with persistence and a heartfelt gesture — or, as heartfelt a gesture as possible via a social media website.

“I’m sorry Taylor,” West wrote early Saturday.

It was simple, to the point, and that alone probably would’ve sufficed … but the floodgates were open, baby, and West kept going and going. “I’ve hurt, I’ve bled, I’ve learned. I only want to do good. I am passionate, I am human, I am real. I wish I could meet every hater,” West went on.

He didn’t stop there. “If you google Asshole my face may very well pop up 2 pages into the search.” At least he wasn’t so hard on himself as to say he’d be the top result.

But even falling on his own sword wasn’t enough. The rapper-producer then did what he does best — create music — and crafted a track over which, at West’s wishes, the country pop star would sing. “I wrote a song for Taylor Swift that’s so beautiful and I want her to have it,” West wrote. “If she won’t take it then I’ll perform it for her.”



It was a surprising moment of humility for a musician known for his arrogance. But anyone who’s heard West’s last album “808s & heartbreak” knows he’s always been a romantic at heart, a gentle soul beneath a jagged exterior, and this proves it. MTV News seems equally impressed by West’s effusive admission, ranking him alongside Chris Brown, Justin Timberlake and feces-dumping Dave Matthews Band on the list of Best Musician Apologies.

But let’s be honest here: a Kanye West and Taylor Swift collaboration? How would West’s predominantly hip-hop beats mesh with Swift’s distinctive Nashville twang?  Entertainment Weekly takes a guess at how it would sound, but we can only hope it’s as pleasant as West’s newfound humility.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Pilot"

    One of our first exposures to uncomfortable “Girls” sex comes early, in the pilot episode, when Hannah and Adam “get feisty” (a phrase Hannah hates) on the couch. The pair is about to go at it doggy-style when Adam nearly inserts his penis in “the wrong hole,” and after Hannah corrects him, she awkwardly explains her lack of desire to have anal sex in too many words. “Hey, let’s play the quiet game,” Adam says, thrusting. And so the romance begins.

    Marnie and Elijah, "It's About Time"

    In an act of “betrayal” that messes up each of their relationships with Hannah, Marnie and Elijah open Season 2 with some more couch sex, which is almost unbearable to watch. Elijah, who is trying to explore the “hetero side” of his bisexuality, can’t maintain his erection, and the entire affair ends in very uncomfortable silence.

    Marnie and Charlie, "Vagina Panic"

    Poor Charlie. While he and Marnie have their fair share of uncomfortable sex over the course of their relationship, one of the saddest moments (aside from Marnie breaking up with him during intercourse) is when Marnie encourages him to penetrate her from behind so she doesn’t have to look at him. “This feels so good,” Charlie says. “We have to go slow.” Poor sucker.

    Shoshanna and camp friend Matt, "Hannah's Diary"

    We’d be remiss not to mention Shoshanna’s effort to lose her virginity to an old camp friend, who tells her how “weird” it is that he “loves to eat pussy” moments before she admits she’s never “done it” before. At least it paves the way for the uncomfortable sex we later get to watch her have with Ray?

    Hannah and Adam, "Hard Being Easy"

    On the heels of trying (unsuccessfully) to determine the status of her early relationship with Adam, Hannah walks by her future boyfriend’s bedroom to find him masturbating alone, in one of the strangest scenes of the first season. As Adam jerks off and refuses to let Hannah participate beyond telling him how much she likes watching, we see some serious (and odd) character development ... which ends with Hannah taking a hundred-dollar bill from Adam’s wallet, for cab fare and pizza (as well as her services).

    Marnie and Booth Jonathan, "Bad Friend"

    Oh, Booth Jonathan -- the little man who “knows how to do things.” After he turns Marnie on enough to make her masturbate in the bathroom at the gallery where she works, Booth finally seals the deal in a mortifying and nearly painful to watch sex scene that tells us pretty much everything we need to know about how much Marnie is willing to fake it.

    Tad and Loreen, "The Return"

    The only sex scene in the series not to feature one of the main characters, Hannah’s parents’ showertime anniversary celebration is easily one of the most cringe-worthy moments of the show’s first season. Even Hannah’s mother, Loreen, observes how embarrassing the situation is, which ends with her husband, Tad, slipping out of the shower and falling naked and unconscious on the bathroom floor.

    Hannah and the pharmacist, "The Return"

    Tad and Loreen aren’t the only ones to get some during Hannah’s first season trip home to Michigan. The show’s protagonist finds herself in bed with a former high school classmate, who doesn’t exactly enjoy it when Hannah puts one of her fingers near his anus. “I’m tight like a baby, right?” Hannah asks at one point. Time to press pause.

    Hannah and Adam, "Role-Play"

    While it’s not quite a full-on, all-out sex scene, Hannah and Adam’s attempt at role play in Season 3 is certainly an intimate encounter to behold (or not). Hannah dons a blond wig and gets a little too into her role, giving a melodramatic performance that ends with a passerby punching Adam in the face. So there’s that.

    Shoshanna and Ray, "Together"

    As Shoshanna and Ray near the end of their relationship, we can see their sexual chemistry getting worse and worse. It’s no more evident than when Ray is penetrating a clothed and visibly horrified Shoshanna from behind, who ends the encounter by asking if her partner will just “get out of me.”

    Hannah and Frank, "Video Games"

    Hannah, Jessa’s 19-year-old stepbrother, a graveyard and too much chatting. Need we say more about how uncomfortable this sex is to watch?

    Marnie and Desi, "Iowa"

    Who gets her butt motorboated? Is this a real thing? Aside from the questionable logistics and reality of Marnie and Desi’s analingus scene, there’s also the awkward moment when Marnie confuses her partner’s declaration of love for licking her butthole with love for her. Oh, Marnie.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Vagina Panic"

    There is too much in this scene to dissect: fantasies of an 11-year-old girl with a Cabbage Patch lunchbox, excessive references to that little girl as a “slut” and Adam ripping off a condom to ejaculate on Hannah’s chest. No wonder it ends with Hannah saying she almost came.
