Few can forget last year’s VMA theatrics starring controversial hip-hop superstar Kanye West and his outburst at country sweetheart Taylor Swift. Recently, West took to Twitter to formally apologize to the young starlette. His chosen form of expressing his sentiments — writing an apology song for Swift. ”I wrote a song for Taylor Swift that’s so beautiful, and I want her to have it,” Kanye tweeted, according to E! Online. ”If she won’t take it then I’ll perform it for her.” It seems the rapper is attempting to clear the air and rebuild bridges with his tweet-happy apology.
What are some creative ways to say you’re sorry?
Face it, everyone messes up sometimes. When apologies are in order, sometimes the more unique methods work best. Cupid gives some suggestions on how to say sorry with some flair.
1. Make a meal: Food is a quick way back into anyone’s good graces, and the time and preparation that goes into creating a meal will show how genuine your apology is.
2. Write a letter: Sometimes it’s harder to say you’re sorry than you’d expect. When this happens, don’t hesitate to write down your apology in letter form. Not only will you be able to explain your thoughts and feelings clearly, but there’s something flatteringly heartfelt about receiving a letter that will definitely help your cause.
3. Do something personal: The thought is what counts, so a personal gesture is the best way to get back in someone’s good graces. Take him to his favorite place, buy his favorite candy or write an “I’m Sorry” card full of inside jokes or memories. With nostalgic moments like that, it’ll be very hard for him to resist forgiving you.
