(Newser) – Taylor Swift forgave Kanye West last night In an unusual musical reconciliation at the MTV Video Music Awards. "Who you are is not what you did," Swift sang to the rapper who rudely stormed onstage last year to challenge Swift's victory in the Best Female Video category. Kanye acknowledged his bad-boy behavior in his own song that ended the program. "Let's toast to the scumbags," he crooned, apparently referring to himself. While the two singers were making nice, Lady Gaga swept the awards, grabbing eight top honors, including wins for Best Pop, Dance, Female Video, and Video of the Year for Bad Romance.
