West booed for outburst after Swift's MTV win
Nekesa Mumbi Moody
"NEW YORK (AP) Kanye West apologized for yet another outburst at the MTV Video Music Awards, this time directed at country-pop sweetheart Taylor Swift. The disruption upstaged not just Swift's awards speech, but the entire evening, including an emotional tribute to Michael Jackson. "In a rare conciliatory moment, West took to his blog to apologize. In a standard all-caps message, West said: "I'M SOOOOO SORRY TO TAYLOR SWIFT AND HER FANS AND HER MOM. I SPOKE TO HER MOTHER RIGHT AFTER AND SHE SAID THE SAME THING MY MOTHER WOULD'VE SAID. SHE IS VERY TALENTED!" "West who has flipped out after losing at the VMAs, the Grammys, the American Music Awards and more again took umbrage when the awards process didn't go the way he wanted it to go. This time, it was on behalf of Beyonce."
