Swift still waiting for a personal apology

NEW YORK (AP) -- September 15, 2009

West has apologized for interrupting Swift's acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards on "The Jay Leno Show" and he's blogged an apology, but Swift tells "The View" "he has not personally reached out" to her.

Swift says a lot of things were going through her mind when West jumped on stage and grabbed the microphone from her. She says she thought, "oh, Kanye West is here. Cool haircut. What are you doing there?"

Swift says she was "rattled" for a moment, but had to pull herself back together to perform five minutes later.

Swift has been swamped with support from fans and other stars. She says she had no idea so many people were looking out for her.
