In September, Kanye West apologized to Taylor Swift via Twitter.
"She had nothing to do with my issues with award shows," the "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" artist wrote. "She deserves the apology more than anyone."
West uttered a retraction of sorts Wednesday during a 1 a.m. performance at the Bowery Ballroom in New York. He stopped the concert for 10-minutes to rant about the media's scrutiny of his career.
West said he does not regret interrupting Swift's first Video Music Award win speech to champion Beyonce instead.
"When you do things like what happened last year, it's disrespectful to everyone who's creative," West said about MTV's decision to give Swift the honor. "It's a slap in the face to everyone who tries to do something real."
West implied that Swift and the VMA producers are lucky his disruption was brief.
"If I wasn't drunk, I would have been on stage longer," he said.
Good to know...

Do you think Kanye west would have gotten so much flak for talking about Taylor Swift if he didn't interrupt her speech and said the same thing once he received his own award?
