Kanye West takes cover of the XXL Magazine set to release in October. This issue will cover Kanye West’s label G.O.O.D. Music, Wiz Khalifa, Kid Cudi, and the top 10 producers of all time. West was asked about the Taylor Swift situation and here’s what was said:
In his candid cover story, Ye speaks on the reaction he received from the infamous 2009 MTV Video Music Awards debacle. “I stress that the incident wasn’t about Taylor personally,” he explains in the story. “And it definitely wasn’t about race. Where I messed up is, at the end of the day, it’s your show, Taylor. It’s your show, MTV.”
“The relationship with the public and with your fans is like the relationship with your girlfriend,” he adds. “How could I not, at a certain point, be like, ‘I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have been at the awards show. I’m sorry.’ Not that I don’t deserve to get beat up or change who I am inside, to make sure that that doesn’t happen again.
