NEW YORK (AP) — A year after his infamous outburst at the MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye West will return.

The rapper is scheduled to perform at the show Sept. 12 in Los Angeles. Last year, he dissed Taylor Swift at the event, grabbing the microphone from her as she accepted the award for best female video and saying Beyonce should have won it.

His remark of "I'm 'a let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time" received a blizzard of negative attention.

West later apologized and took a hiatus from music. He will release his fifth studio album, "Dark Twisted Fantasy," in November.

Lady Gaga leads this year's VMAs with 13 nominations.
