kanye Los Angeles, Nov 12 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Kanye West used his time on the “Today” show to try and make up for his “mistakes”. The singer who was on the show to promote his new album spoke about his saga with the former president of the United States George W. Bush. During the interview Kanye West acknowledged that the words he used for the former United States president were harsh.
