The fallout continues for Kanye West after music fans around the world have largely condemned the Grammy award winning rapper for interrupting 18 year old country singer Taylor Swift's MTV VMA acceptance speech on Sunday night.
West appeared on The Jay Leno Show last night during a brief impromptu interview to continue apologizing for his immature behavior before his scheduled performance with Rihanna & Jay-Z.
West is rendered speechless (probably for the first time in his life) when Leno asks what he thought his late mother Donda West would think of his behavior. He also promises to take some time off for "reflection".
"So many celebrities, they never take the time off... 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."
Let's hope Kanye keeps his word and takes the time off to put his ego in check. His behavior is inexcusable and the rebuke he's feeling by fans has been long overdue. It's a shame fame and fortune doesn't always guarantee class.
