Kanye still hurting over Swift debacle

NEW YORK -- 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 unleashed a torrent of emotions on his official Twitter account Saturday, acknowledging once again that he was wrong for jumping on stage, taking the trophy that Swift won at the MTV Video Music Awards and saying that it should have gone to Beyonce.

But the rapper-producer said that he has experienced enormous pain, been the subject of death wishes and suffered tremendous setbacks to his career.

Lautner settles suit over RV

LOS ANGELES -- A lawyer for Taylor Lautner said the ''Twilight'' star has settled a lawsuit with an RV dealership he claims didn't deliver a $300,000 coach in time for a movie shoot.

Attorney Robert Barta said Friday that McMahon RV of Irvine, Calif., will pay $40,000 to Lautner, who will donate it to Lollipop Theater Network, a children's charity.

The 18-year-old Lautner sued the dealership Monday, saying it missed a June deadline to deliver the 2006 Affinity Country Coach for use on the set of the movie ''Abduction.''
