Kanye West Talks Taylor Swift VMAs Tirade, Performs With Jay-Z And Rihanna On The Premiere Of The Jay Leno Show

A somber Kanye West honored an impromptu interview request from Jay Leno during the premiere of his new show to talk about the now infamous 2009 MTV Video Music Awards tirade against country cutie Taylor Swift‘s best female video win that happened just one day ago.

“Tell us about your day. Did you have a tough day today,” Leno joked with a very serious Kanye.

“It’s been extremely difficult dealing with the fact that I hurt or took something away from a talented artist.”

“It was just rude, period,” Kanye later explained of the incident.

When asked when he knew he was wrong, Kanye explained it was when he gave Taylor the microphone back to finish her acceptance speech, but the visibly shocked teen did not continue.

The entire appearance was not dedicated to the awards show brouhaha. It was, in fact, meant to promote Jay-Z‘s current hit single Run This Town that features West and pop princess Rihanna.

  1. He apologized? Really?
    Still a complete dickfuck.

  2. They should of used somebody who can actually SING. Rihanna sucks.

  3. Kanye is a butt head childish heartless and as a mother I will tell you what his mother would of thought totally embrassment and shame for his behavior this has not been the first time he has acted as a jack ass .Shame on him I really do not think he should be allowed on anymore award shows it seems like he can’t control himself so do us all a favor stay home

  4. What did Kanye actually say on Lino? Was he just trying to save his ass or what?

  5. So, he is 30 something and he humiliates a teenager and then apologizes because he was in a bad place in his life? People accept this behaviour and this weak apology?
    Why don’t we just yell “You lie!” while she is singing, break a tennis racket over her head or throw a shoe at her?
    So sad that this seems to be the norm in America.

    • doesn't matter says:

      Did you listen to his apology? He said that doesn’t excuse what he did. He was wrong and he said it. It’s sad that this is generating the amount of hate that Michael Vick’s dog fighting did. Everyone needs to realize that there are more important things to complain about.

      • More important things to complain about? Michael Vick’s dog fighting KILLED dogs. It’s sad that you don’t view loss of life as important.

    • i think he is a dick you’re right. but dude your being a little dramatic dont you think? you’ve never said or thrown some thing then later regret it.come on dude its like saying you’ve never speed ed in you’re life trust me if you were famous im sure there would be things that aren’t to nice that the media would exploit but as for west there is no excuse whats so ever

  6. Shut up…… It is not that serious he apologized, you act like he committed a murder or something.. leave the man alone…. he is a great artist he made a mistake!!!

    • Shut up? How old are you,Twelve?
      Actually, it is that serious. This just reinforces what I referred to earlier. Your simple minded, nonchalant attitude is what makes this type of behavior acceptable. He is a medicocre artist at best. However, he is in the public eye and needs to act responsibly. Miscreants like you give seem to appreciate and laud his idiotic behavior. Once again I have to say that it is sad.

      Also, try to learn how to use ellipses properly. :) Yeah, look it up.

        Whatever, ur trying way too hard. Take it down a notch.

        • Ok I agree, Kanye did something unacceptable but he apologized! The guy was drunk and he didn’t know what he was doing, he was out of this mind. And he regrets it, so leave him alone.
          I’m not saying that because I’m a fan, because honestly I don’t especially since he said that he was the “new king of pop”. But still, he didn’t kill someone!
          What about Akon who did something really dirty with a minor during his concert, or Chris Brown who beat Rihanna…What he did is not that bad compared to what Chris Brown did.
          So seriously leave him alone…

          • Yeah, he didn’t kill someone but people are sick of the stupid shit he does – hasn’t he done this VMA thing 8 times? Maybe they should do a skit about him. There’s some sites on the internet that have jokes about him “Imma gonna let you finish” – pretty funny. I think all three of the performers you mentioned need a reality check. There are so many talented musical performers in each city performing at local bars/clubs who never get recording contracts or the success these three performers have. Wouldn’t hurt them to be grateful they have the chance to do something they love for a living – for a lot of $$$$.

        Now you criticized Alicia for her OWN opinion of the situation and you did it very rudely. That is exactly the type of statement that IF your were famous would’ve been a big deal and turned into an ugly situation just for publicity reasons. That is what happened with the Kanye. No, it was not right what he did and he can’t take it back now but it happened. We do things like that all the time but it is not made public because we are nobodies. She did got her moment back which was an honorable thing for Beyonce to do. They just gave us something to talk about for the next couple of weeks which boost their stardom. I agree that it was not that serious but who am I to JUDGE!!!!

  7. ok really who cares big deal, oh poor talor, taylor is big girl, people act liked he stabbed her or somthin it was wrong yes but now its getting to the point where the punishment doesnt fit the crime, people wishing death on kayne, and all this weird stuff like u people really care if either of them died or were really hurt, go feed the homeless, adopt a pet, put a kid through college or somthin

  8. yall charlie browning too much. shut the fuck up and move on. taylor has.

    anyway, the performance was good. rihanna killed it like the bad bitch she is. kick rocks haters!

  9. Alot of yall didnt evn support taylor b4 this but quick to call Ye a racist jus cuz taylors white we all he did was defend a clearly better video i dnt condone wat he did but life moves on taylor cleary is fine we got bigger things to worry bout…Ye nd taylor are both awesome artists…shit happenz

    • They’re just videos – and Beyonce’s wasn’t clearly better, just different. Also, “shit happenz” refers to accidents. What Kanye, or “Ye” as you call him, did wasn’t an accident. He chose to walk onstage during an event on the show that had nothing to do with him – he wasn’t even nominated for that category.

  10. He is still UNFORGIVEN! He took Taylor’s Momnet and made it about him self! I think that’s was really is getting under everone’s skin! And I haven’t liked him since the whole thing at the fasion show with Pink and Paul McCartney! “This fasion Show needs more fur!” Pink was right when she said he was a waist of skin! and he just proved it.. Sunday night!

  11. Some of Kanye’s fans are mad about the comments, but you seem to conveniently forget that HE CAUSED ALL OF THIS. He could have just sat in the audience like anyone else while Swift accepted her award. Also, he has a history of going onstage while other performers are receiving their awards and making inappropriate comments. Like any bad behavior, he’s the only one who can decide not to do things when he doesn’t like the consequences. I wasn’t much of a fan of either artist before this, doesn’t make me put a halo over Taylor Swift’s head now. I can’t understand why someone in their 30s who’s that successful would do something that immature, pointless, and weird, though – makes me wonder what he does with the rest of his day….. DEFINITELY not a fan, now.
