Kanye West is still going out of his way to explain his outburst at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards, when he stormed the stage and interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech.

“The incident wasn’t about Taylor personally. 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,” West tells XXL Magazine.

“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.”
