Kanye West hit up Jay Leno and offered yet another apology for the stunt he pulled on Taylor Swift during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards (Click Here to watch). I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling a bit of Kanye overload right now. But since I’m all for the people, I thought I’d share this transcript and video of Kanye’s 3rd apology on Jay Leno. (Apology #1, Apology #2)
JAY LENO: Have a seat, my friend. First of all, let me say thank you for honoring this commitment.

Tell me about your day. Have you had a tough day today?
KANYE WEST: Yeah, it’s been extremely difficult. I just — just dealing with the fact that I hurt someone or took anything away, you know, from a talented artist or from anyone, because I only wanted to help people. My entire life, I’ve only wanted to give and do something that I felt was right. And I immediately knew in the situation that it was wrong, and it wasn’t a spectacle or just — you know, it’s actually someone’s emotions, you know, that I stepped on. And it was very — it was just — it was rude, period. And, you know, I’d like to be able to apologize to her in person. And I wanted to –
JAY LENO: So when did you know you were wrong? Was it afterwards? as you were doing it? When did it strike you, “Uh-oh”?
