Kanye West opens up about the moment he took away from Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards in the latest issue of XXL magazine:

“I stress that the incident wasn’t about Taylor personally,” he explains. “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.”

He also speaks on how he focused on his work after the incident to deal with the situation and backlash from people:

“I knew I wasn’t in a great spot publicly after the incident, but I would just block it out and work as hard as possible and let my work be my saving grace,” he shared. “In a way, I had thrown a Molotov cocktail at my own career, and it gave me an opportunity, for the first time, to go away and find out who I was. Because I felt very alone.”
