Kanye West to Jay Leno: I'm

Kanye West saw his name on the top of the charts with his single 'Heartless' and now his heartless act at the MTV VMA's has caused such a backlash, he's on major damage control.

Jay Leno was lucky enough to have had him scheduled as a guest during the premiere of 'The Jay Leno Show' last night on NBC so Kanye got one more chance to make a public apology.

Speaking to Jay, Kanye said, "It's been extremely difficult. 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 want 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, it's actually someone's emotions, you know, that I stepped on."
Kanye claimed he knew he was doing the wrong thing when he handed the microphone back to Taylor and she just stared at the ground with tears in her eyes.

He added: "It was very rude, period. And, you know, I'd like to be able to apologize to her in person. I'm just ashamed that my hurt caused someone else's hurt."
