"I'M SOOOOO SORRY" Says Kanye West For VMA Outburst

Kanye West has apologized for an outburst at the MTV Video Music Awards that was directed at country-pop sweetheart Taylor Swift.

West interrupted Swift's acceptance speech at Sunday's VMAs and seemed to suggest Beyonce deserved to win.

On his blog later, he wrote: "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!"

For her part, Swift called the evening "interesting."

After Beyonce won Video of the Year honors for her hit "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)," she called Swift to the stage to finish her acceptance speech.

The VMAs featured an opening tribute to Michael Jackson that included Madonna reminiscing about her relationship with the King of Pop and a performance by his sister, Janet Jackson.

Perezhilton.com has posted photos the website says is of West swigging from an alcohol bottle at the awards.

    I don't believe race is a issue here. I wouldn't like him if he was white.

    Drop It -- you hit the nail on the head. There are so many important topics that need some serious discussion. Verifiable facts need to be used instead of the hit and miss numbers everyone referes to while trying to defend their point. God made us all, including those who we disrespect with out senseless comments. We unfortunately will never come to the point where we will acknowledge that we are all related, most certainly through many generations, and quit killing each other because of some petty event that happened a thousand years ago. God said to love one another, not load your backpack up with explosives and see how many of those "other people" you can kill for some reason you don't even full understand. The nations of the world need to determine how to help each other instead of trying to be the big frog in the small pond. God made all of us and we must somehow get over the idea that any ethnic group is superior to any other. Then the world won't need Marines and Soldiers. Peace

    Everybody is making this a chat page filled with opinions about racism and politics...Can you people please get back on the subject of Taylor Swift and Kanye West, or did you all loose track of the subject like the simple minded people you are? Get a chat room if you're going to do that.
