Kanye West's day of contrition continued last night on "The Jay Leno Show" -- where he made his third apology for hijacking Taylor Swift's winning VMA moment.
A somber Kanye was visibly shaken by one tough question, when Jay asked "I was fortunate enough to meet your mom, what do you think she would have said about this?" West's mother died in 2007.
Kanye said he was "ashamed" of his actions and is going to "take some time off."
