TAYLOR SWIFT: Kanye Has a Song for Taylor
As the anniversary of the Taylor Swift - Kanye West MTV Video Music Awards mess draws near, Kanye has been spending a lot of time cleansing his soul on Twitter.

Kanye says he's even written a song for Taylor. "If she won't take it, then I'll perform it for her. She had nothing to do with my issues with awards shows. She had no idea what hit her. She's just a lil' girl with dreams like the rest of us."
