Los Angeles - Kanye West is apologising to TV viewers who saw his performance on the Billboard Music Awards.
The rapper released a statement on Tuesday saying he was "grossly over-censored" during his performance on the show. He says some of his lyrics were muted for 30 seconds, which misrepresented his voice and performance.
The audience at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena booed as West performed his songs All Day and Black Skinhead at Sunday's ceremony, which was broadcast on ABC.
West's statement apologizes to the television audience, who he says was "unable to enjoy the performance the way he envisioned."
ABC did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Tuesday.
