VIDEO: Kanye West Gets Emotional on Jay Leno

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Prime Time, Talk Shows, NBC, Video,


UPDATE: New video added above includes a third apology from the rapper.

He was only supposed to perform with Rihanna and Jay-Z, but Kanye West found himself sitting on ‘s new set tonight. This appearance comes just hours after Kanye posted a new apology for singer Taylor Swift.

Although NBC has only provided teaser video so far (we’re working to find another clip), you can see the rapper become emotional when the host talks about his outburst at the Video Music Awards. (Asking what West’s deceased mother would have said about the matter was apparently the million dollar question.)

MTV VIDEO: Beyonce Shares VMAs Spotlight with Taylor Swift

UPDATE: You can read Taylor Swift’s response to West’s outburst here.

Hey Kanye—screw your apology letter. This is what “class” looks like.

Having witnessed Taylor Swift’s VMAs moment interrupted by one of her “fans,” Beyonce Knowles did what was right. While accepting her award for Video of the Year, the singer allowed the 19-year-old to pick up where she left off.

“I remember being 17 years old, up for my first MTV Award with Destiny’s Child, and it was one of the most exciting moments in my life. So I’d like Taylor to come out and have her moment,” Knowles said.

Cue another standing ovation…for both stars.

Kanye West apology

UPDATE: You can read Taylor Swift’s response to his outburst here.

Etiquette Rule #213: “If you’re going to write an apology letter…DON’T USE ALL FREAKIN’ CAPS!!!”

Shortly after disrespecting country singer Taylor Swift (and reportedly being kicked out of the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards), Kanye West hit his personal blog.

Since we’re currently unable to access the website (has the half-ass “apology” already disintegrated?), you’ll just have to read his

insincere

words here.

What do you think about the rapper’s post? Do you think Taylor should even give him the time of day?

MTV VIDEO: Kanye West Disrespects Taylor Swift at VMAs

UPDATE: You can read Kanye West’s “apology” here.

Let’s just make this clear—this stunt was not orchestrated like Bruno’s moment with Eminem.

During tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye West stunned the audience—and an already stunned —with a declaration that will be talked about for quite some time. While accepting an award for Best Female Video, the country singer was interrupted by the rapper who was upset about Beyonce’s loss in the category.

Although Kanye is known for acting like a child when he is not presented an award, he felt it was necessary to defend Ms. Knowles’ honor during Taylor’s moment on stage. (Based on the shocked expression on Beyonce’s face, she clearly didn’t want his help.) Unfortunately, that left the beautiful 19-year-old standing there with nothing left to say.
