How to apologize like a celebrity

Singer Kanye West made a fool of himself at an awards show last weekend. In response, he gave a prototypical celebrity apology--one that works to make its giver look contrite and gain sympathy without taking full responsibility for his/her actions.

West said: he has to "deal with hurt" and he "never takes time off" and that he's "just ashamed that my hurt caused someone else's hurt."

I guess that we really should be feeling bad for Kanye West in all of this. The poor young man is propelled by hurt to act like a raging jackass.
