Kanye Sits Down WIth Leno, Apologizes, Makes Excuses

24 hours after the Taylor Swift VMA incident, Kanye West appeared on the premier of that stupid new Jay Leno show, alongside Jay-Z and Rihanna, to perform “Run This Town.” Before the performance, though, Kanye sat down for a brief interview to address the whole Taylor Swift thing, which he did by explaining that he acts like an asshole because his mom died and he didn’t take time off to deal with that? I don’t know. Neither ‘Ye nor Leno come off particularly likable, but this makes sense because I guess they’re not, really.
