Kanye West will be back at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards one year after his infamous outburst on stage. The rapper will be performing at the event Sept. 12 in Los Angeles.

Last year, West dissed Taylor Swift at the event during her acceptance speech for best female video. He grabbed the microphone and declared that Beyonce should have won the award.

West later apologized and took a break from music. He will release his fifth studio album, "Dark Twisted Fantasy," in November.
