In the wake of Kanye West’s stage-crashing interruption of Taylor Swift’s Best Female Video acceptance speech at Sunday’s Video Music Awards, the rapper spent the next two days apologizing profusely for the incident. The mea culpas included a pair of blog posts , an appearance on the premiere of “The Jay Leno Show” and a personal phone call to Swift herself after she told the hosts of “The View” that he had not attempted to get in touch with her . He otherwise took a break from his personal blog, which he typically updates half a dozen times a day.
On Thursday he broke his Internet silence and resumed posting his regular collection of fashion endorsements, links to info about art installations and cool architecture photos. The only personal note in any of the posts was one with the headline “Another day in the Truman Show AKA my life!” The entire content of the post was an image of the poster for the 1998 Jim Carrey movie “The Truman Show,” which was about a man who is unaware that his entire life has been constructed for a television show.
Earlier, Kanye deleted both of his apologies to Swift (his initial all-caps post and the second one, where he compared himself to Ben Stiller in “Meet the Parents”).
Conversely, while Swift has appeared on TV and in public since the VMA incident, she has maintained cyber silence, having not updated her Twitter since before the show began Sunday night. Swift is normally a regular user of the micro-blogging service, but as of press time, her account has now been dormant for five days.
