Kanye West Apologizes for Taylor Swift Incident


Kanye West appeared on the premiere episode of “The Jay Leno Show” last night and discussed the events of the MTV Video Music Awards. The rapper apologized to Taylor Swift saying he had been through a lot of personal things and had been drinking on the carpet. He explained, “just dealing with the fact that I hurt someone or took anything away, you know, from a talented artist or from anyone, because I only wanted to help people.”

“My entire life, I’ve only wanted to give and do something that I felt was right. And I immediately knew in the situation that it was wrong, and it wasn’t a spectacle or just – you know, it’s actually someone’s emotions, you know, that I stepped on.”

“And it was very … rude, period. And, you know, I’d like to be able to apologize to her in person.” He knew he had messed up once he handed her the mic back and she didn’t keep speaking.
