Kanye West has had an itchy Twitter finger in the last week it seems. He's tweeted about the $53 million he invested on his new album and fashion line to the cost of textbooks and yet on a Thursday he's managed to surprise us again.

He was humble. Apologetic, even.

He hasn't actually specifically said what he was wrong about but we're guessing it would be the lyric from his new song Famous in which he claimed he catapulted Taylor Swift to stardom by crashing her 2009 MTV Video Music Awards acceptance speech.

Swift had the last say at Monday's Grammys when she made a thinly veiled reference to West while accepting the award for album of the year:

"As the first woman to win album of the year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to all the young women out there: there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame," Swift cautioned. "But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you’re going, you’ll look around and you’ll know it was you and the people who love you who put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world."
