Ortega/PR PhotosThis past Saturday, Kanye West tweeted his most in-depth public apology yet for interrupting Taylor Swift on that fateful night nearly a year ago. Swift’s official response so far has been a familiar silence. Her reps declined to comment today, as they have consistently done for stories involving West over the past months. To borrow the title of Swift’s upcoming album, how come she won’t Speak Now?

It’s worth remembering that West’s Twitter monologue was not his first apology to Swift — more like the fourth. And Swift did answer him when their MTV Video Music Awards debacle was still fresh news. She discussed the matter in light-hearted fashion (“Cool haircut!”) on The View last September, then magnanimously accepted when West called the TV studio to apologize. By leaving it at that, I’d say she’s doing the classy, mature thing. West acted rudely toward her; he told her he was sorry; she accepted his genuine contrition. Saying anything more would only help prolong a story that Swift must be eager to move on from.

But I’m sure some of you will disagree. Do you think Taylor Swift should respond further to Kanye West? How likely do you think it is that you’ll get your wish at the VMAs this coming weekend? Sound off in the comments.
