Kanye West apologizes again to Swift on Leno

Monday, September 14, 2009 – Kanye West apologized yet again on the debut of the Jay Leno Show Monday night for taking the mike from Taylor Swift at the Video Music Association awards and saying Beyonce should have won the best female video award.

West told Leno he would take time off to reflect on his actions towards Swift. He apologized to her via his blog twice. West said he knew he did something wrong immediately after giving the mike back to Swift, who seemed stunned and was speechless. Beyonce later called her back on stage to speak.

"It was rude, period," West said.

He said he needed to determine "how I'm going to make it through the rest of this life."

West had been slated to perform on Leno with Rihanna and Jay-Z, but asked for time to talk about the controversy. He was booed at the VMAs and later asked to leave the New York theatre.

Swift's songwriting always has been one of her strengths, and that continues to be the case here - both lyrically and musically. Put simply, Swift knows a lot about penning ...
CD review - Fearless Taylor Swift took the county world by storm with her huge selling debut and its five hit singles. With a huge marketing push and myspace, Swift was on her way. Kind of like an Avril Lavigne for the teen female country set. Sophomore slump? There's no indication of that. Swift once again writes her material - all 13 songs here with help sometimes from Liz Rose, Colbie Caillat and John Rich. Swift writes of what she knows about - relationships and teen love come and gone in songs speak to her fans. ...
