Kanye West Tweets Out Apologies to Beck and Bruno Mars
By Jackie Willis
Kanye West was certainly in an apologetic mood when he started tweeting on Thursday night.
After crashing Beck's acceptance speech at the GRAMMYs earlier this month, Kanye decided it was time to say he's sorry. "I would like to publicly apologize to Beck," the 37-year-old rapper tweeted. "I'm sorry Beck."
On Feb. 8, Kanye rushed the GRAMMYs stage after Beck beat out Beyonce for Album of the Year. It was reminiscent of when he interrupted Taylor Swift's speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards when she beat out Beyonce for Best Female Music Video. However, in this instance West stopped himself before grabbing the microphone from Beck.
The apologies didn't stop with Beck. Kanye also expressed his remorse to Bruno Mars, and even suggested the two collaborate. "I also want to publicly apologize to Bruno Mars, I used to hate on him but I really respect what he does as an artist," he tweeted. "I also would love for Bruno to sing this hook on this song 88 Keys / Puff and I produced… I even asked Tyler to shoot the vid."

During a Bonnaroo Music Festival performance, Kanye slammed the "Uptown Funk" singer and his 2014 Super Bowl performance. "What's the new sh*t out? What's the new sh*t out with the most commercials at the Super Bowl? Let's just stop the music and play a Bruno Mars song right now, how about that? They told me I would never play at the Super Bowl. They told me I could never play at the Super Bowl. Not until I'm super old. Not until I'm super old … They told me I would never play at the Super Bowl. They told me I would never play at the Super Bowl, at least not until I'm super old. So I think it's time -- hold up, f**k that toast."
It was also recently revealed that the Yeezus rapper will be collaborating with Swift on some music, thus making it only a matter of time before we here a Kanye West and Beck song.
