NEW YORK (AP) — Hip-hop star Kanye West is still feeling the pain over his trophy grab from Taylor Swift last year — and he's expressing his pain all over Twitter.

West has unleashed a torrent of emotions on his official Twitter on Saturday, acknowledging he was wrong for taking an award from the country music sweetheart at the MTV Video Music Awards. But he says he "bled hard." He says he had to cancel his tour with Lady Gaga and even lost employees.

He once again apologized to Swift and says he has written a song for Swift that he hopes she will perform.

West experienced tremendous backlash over the stunt — even President Barack Obama called him a jackass.

West is working on a new album and due to appear at the VMAs again this year.
