B.YONEST NEWZ: Kanye West offers his 3rd (kind of) apology to Taylor Swift on “The Jay Leno Show”

Picture 25

From tonight’s premiere of NBC’s “The Jay Leno Show,” Kanye West discusses with Jay Leno the disruption that he caused with Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV VMA’s … full text:

JAY LENO: So thank you for coming and doing this, in light of all the things that have been going on.
Tell me about your day. Have you had a tough day today?
(Laughter.)
KANYE WEST: Yeah, it’s been extremely difficult. I just — 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 Picture 24wrong, 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 — it was just — it was rude, period. And, you know, I’d like to be able to apologize to her in person. And I wanted to —
JAY LENO: So when did you know you were wrong? Was it afterwards? as you were doing it? When did it strike you, “Uh-oh”?
KANYE WEST: As soon as I gave the mic back to her and she didn’t keep going.
(Laughter.)
JAY LENO: Let me ask you something. I was fortunate enough to meet your mom and talk with your mom a number of years ago. What do you think she would have said about this? Would she be disappointed in this? Would she give you a lecture?
KANYE WEST: Yeah. You know, obviously, you know, I deal with hurt. And, you know, so many celebrities, they never take the time off. I’ve never taken the time off to really — you know, just music after music and tour after tour. I’m just ashamed that my hurt caused someone else’s hurt. My dream of what awards shows are supposed to be, ’cause — and I don’t try to justify it because I was just in the wrong. That’s period. But I need to, after this, take some time off and just analyze how I’m going to make it through the rest of this life, how I’m going to improve. Because I am a celebrity, and that’s something I have to deal with. And if there’s anything I could do to help Taylor in the future or help anyone, I’d like — you know, I want to live this thing. It’s hard sometimes, so —
JAY LENO: Thanks for coming here, and thanks for doing that.
(Applause.)

UPDATE: Word has it that Kanye called Taylor Swift and apologized to her directly after he saw her on “THE VIEW” this morning.

So was that really an APOLOGY???  Does that really make the situation any better?  Was it a HOAX?  When will we see next a hit song with Taylor Swift and Kanye West collaborating?

He did seem a bit remorseful…he says he wants to apologize in person!

Then Jay-Z, Rihanna and Kanye West performed “Run This Town”

Here is a REMIX of “Run This Town” – have you heard it yet???

  1. WAT I THINK KANYE DID UP THERE SHOWS NO RESPECT AT ALL, I NEVER EXPECTED SOMETHING LIKE THAT FROM HIM I THOUGH HE WAS A BETTER PERSON,AND NOT TO BE RUDE BUT NONE OF UR APOLOGIES IS GONNA FIX UP ANYTHING I ALSO FELT BAD FOR TAYLOR BECAUSE IF THAT WAS ME UP THERE I WOULD OF HAVE SAID SOMETHING!!!! BUT TAYLOR STOOD QUIET AND I THINK SHE FELT REALLY BAD BUT I HOPE SHE DOESNT CARE ABOUT WAT OTHER PPL DO OR SAY!!!

  2. gawd..he puts us back 400 years..i should slap his damn face

  3. why do black ppl always blame sumbody else for “pushing them back” yu pusin yoself bak by allowing urself to think that yu are being pushed bak

  4. You said:
    “He did seem a bit remorseful…he says he wants to apologize in person!”
    ———————————

    I don’t think he was remorseful about what he did to Taylor Swift… I think he just had a whole day to realize how disgusted people were with him and that’s what he was feeling bad about. Not only fans (Or should I say “former” fans) were condemning him, but celebrities were also condemning him. He deserves any insults hurled at him.

  5. Chris08, Honey did you not learn from Kanye! Think before you speak. Um , he pushes back the human race 400 years. There! I made it simple so you would understand.

  6. I forgot to add that I read a comment somewhere else that they wished that Kanye West had tried to do what he did to Danny Bonaduce instead of Taylor. Now that would be worth the price of a ticket. 🙂

    I saw it as an apology. I think the tearing up was real too, as a reaction to the very interesting question that Leno asked about how Kanye’s mother would have felt about all this.

    I think Kanye will grow from all this.

    Thanks for the comment!

  9. […] He said on “THE JAY LENO SHOW” ast night that he wanted to apologize to her in person..  (CLICK HERE for text of interview with Jay Leno) […]

  10. Well, Kanye had no other choice but to apologize, but unfortunately he does not mean his apology. This is not a racial dispute as per comments I see here, this is a matter of Kanye being a hungry for attention individual that is also egocentric that needed some media attention. Jay Leno, no disrespect to you, but taking in consideration how “expresive” you can be in some topics, you showed to Kanye the mercy he did not show Taylor.

  11. I think this appology was way better than the others. I know those tears were real ,because he most likely paid for the plastic surgery that help lead to his mother’s death. Plus guys and girls who are saying that theyb will never listen to him again, and saying they are former fans if he comes out with a hit song (another one) you will still be turning it up in your cars so what’s the point.

  12. […] MORE ENTERTAINMENT, MUSIC AND CELEBRITY NEWZ HERE… #gallery-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-1 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-1 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } […]

  13. West has made some money out of the tat he calls his music, but it just shows you can’t buy class.
    No apology can repair this, not that he has made an apology yet. It may well be a career-breaker, and frankly, good riddance to bad rubbish.
