Kanye West Apologies, Again!
So you’d have to be living under a rock to not have heard the news about what KanYe West did at the MTV VMA’s on Sunday night. West’s very public outburst, which resulted in him rushing the stage during Taylor Swifts acceptance speech as she was awarded the Best Female Video has landed him in some very hot water.
KanYe used Jay Leno’s prime-time debut on Monday to offer yet another apology for ruining Taylor Swift’s night at the VMAs and to say he’s going to take some time off for reflection.
West told Leno: “It's been extremely difficult, I'm just dealing with the fact that I hurt someone…I only wanted to help people, my entire life, I always wanted to give and do something… I immediately knew in this situation that it was wrong… It was actually someone's emotions that I stepped on. I'd like to be able to apologize to her in person,"
When Jay asked what Kanye's mother Donda, who passed away in November of 2007, would have thought of his behavior, Kanye paused for a very long time, and then answered, "Yeah, obviously I deal with hurt and so many celebrities you know, they never take the time off, I've never really taken time off. … I'm just ashamed that my hurt caused someone else's hurt."
He added that what he did was wrong and he wasn't going to try to justify it, and also said, "I need to, after this, take some time off and analyze how I'm going to make it through the rest of this life, how I'm going to improve. If there's anything I can do to help Taylor in the future, to help anyone, I'd like to.
West’s behavior was not taken lightly, and many celebs didn’t waste much time in expressing their distaste for the rappers actions for stealing Swifts limelight.
Donald Trump told TMZ.com that the world should boycott all Kanye products "so this kind of thing doesn't happen again." You know, it's like declaring a no-fly zone over Iraq. (See where that got us.) "[Kanye] couldn't care less about Beyoncé. It was grandstanding to get attention," added the famed egomaniac.
Joe Jackson agrees: "They should blackball him out of show business for that."
Kelly Clarkson used sweet sarcasm: "Did you not get hugged enough [as a child]??" she wrote in a blog entry addressed to Kanye. "I just pity you because you're a sad human being."
Pink was explicit: "Kanye West is the biggest piece of [doo-doo] on earth."
John Mayer opted for the positive: "Big love to my girl @taylorswift13. A class act."
So the Louis Vuitton Don has apologised. Twice! But is it really enough? Drop us a comment and et us know your thoughts!!
