Kanye West Apologises For Britney Outburst
And he blows $180,000 on a unique gift for himself…
It has been a busy few days for Kanye West, even by his standards – his Jay-Z hit No 2 on iTunes, he poked fun at Britney Spears on Twitter and he blew a cool $180,000 on a customised watch featuring his face!
Kanye took to his Twitter page on Friday to celebrate the success of H.A.M., which was beaten to the top of the iTunes chart by Britney’s new single, Taylor Swift. "Yo Britney," he tweeted. "I'm really happy for you and I'mma let you be #1, but me and Jay-Z single is one of the best songs of all time."
Kanye swears it was intended as a joke, but angry Britney fans vented their frustrations on the Avril Lavigneand Britney Spears... No hate in 2011! I thought LOL signified a joke... I didn't get the 2011 LOL doesn't signify a joke anymore memo.”
Britney’s manager Adam Leber took the opportunity to have a pop at the rapper, sarcastically thanking him on the singer’s behalf. "Thanks for 'letting' us be #1," he wrote. "Much appreciated."
On a lighter note, Kanye celebrated the success of his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album by buying himself a $180,000 Tiret watch this week. The one-of-a-kind design features the star’s likeness on the dial in over eight carats of yellow, black, brown and white diamonds.
