first this gqmf invented the moving painting, now this crazy 2 headed illuminati magazine shit? bow down
After a year of avoiding the press, Kanye West is ready to tell his side of the story. The 'Runaway' singer penned his first article for XXL magazine, and PopEater has the exclusive first look at his reaction to the 2009 Taylor Swift VMA debacle.
"I stress that the incident wasn't about Taylor personally. And it definitely wasn't about race. Where I messed up is, at the end of the day, it's your show, Taylor. It's your show, MTV," West explains in XXL's October 2010 issue, on stands next week.
"The relationship with the public and with your fans is like the relationship with your girlfriend. How could I not, at a certain point, be like, 'I'm sorry. I shouldn't have been at the awards show. I'm sorry.' Not that I don't deserve to get beat up or change who I am inside, to make sure that that doesn't happen again."
West is, of course, speaking about the notorious night last year when he stormed the stage at the VMAs, grabbed Swift's mic and told the audience that a different artist (Beyonce) deserved to win the Best Female Video award that had just been awarded to the young pop star.
During Sunday night's 2010 VMAs, West performed his non-answer to Swift's song about him. And while he didn't exactly address last year's incident, he did take aim at his disrespectful behavior.
"I knew I wasn't in a great spot publicly after the incident, but I would just block it out and work as hard as possible and let my work be my saving grace. In a way, I had thrown a Molotov cocktail at my own career, and it gave me an opportunity, for the first time, to go away and find out who I was. Because I felt very alone," he writes in the mag.source
