Kanye West’s appearance on Kris Jenner’s talk show Friday did more than just reveal the baby picture of his daughter, North West; it also seemed to be a PR move to improve his public image.
To wit: Kanye actually said that he regretted his infamous interruption of Taylor Swift’s 2009 VMA speech. “The last thing I would want to happen to my daughter is some crazy, drunk black guy in a leather shirt to come up and cut her off at an awards show,” he said.
This is a total about-face, because as recently as June he told The New York Times that if people wanted to hear an apology about the incident “they should just stop reading right now.” What a difference a baby makes.
