Kanye West Apologizes Again, Lil Mama Meant No 'Disrespect'
And the apologies continue rolling in.
Kanye West took to his blog again to apologize for interrupting Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for Best Female Video during this weekend's MTV Video Music Awards and Lil Mama's publicist releases a statement from the rapper, who says she didn't mean "any disrespect towards Jay-Z or Alicia Keys."
"I felt like Ben Stiller in 'Meet The Parents' when he messed up everything and Robert De Niro asked him to leave… That was Taylor's moment and I had no right in any way to take it from her. I am truly sorry," West posted on his blog today.
The statement released on behalf of pint-sized rapstress Lil Mama, who got on stage during Jay-Z and Alicia Key's hyped closing performance of "Empire State of Mind," off Jay-Z's latest "Blueprint 3" album, reads:
"I did not mean any disrespect towards Jay-Z or Alicia Keys. I admire them and look up to them as role models," Mama said. "'Empire State of Mind' had my emotions running high. In that moment I came up on stage to celebrate my two icons singing about NY."
