"I wrote a song for Taylor Swift that's so beautiful and I want her to have it," West Tweeted earlier this month. "If she won't take it then I'll perform it for her. She had nothing to do with my issues with award shows. She had no idea what hit her."

MTV declined to comment on Swift's participation.
