Kanye West Covers 'XXL' October 2010
The 33-year-old rapper wrote the cover story on himself – it’s his first article ever!
Inside the mag, Kanye dished on the infamous VMAs incident last year. “I stress that the incident wasn’t about Taylor personally,” he shared. “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 added. “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.”
FYI: Kanye also served as the creative director of the special collector’s issue 40-page section.
