Kim Kardashian Apologizes For Aaliyah Costume

Kim Kardashian West is apologizing after offending some fans by dressing up as the late singer, Aaliyah, for Halloween.

Kim took to her website to explain why she chose Aaliyah for one of her many Halloween costumes, and her intentions behind the costume:

"Aaliyah was such an amazing singer and she will forever be a music legend. I saw online that some people thought my costume was in poor taste and I am truly sorry if that offended anyone.

"When I was creating the costume, I wasn't dressing up as a race or culture but rather as a woman whom I will always admire."

"I play every kind of genre of music in my home and I like for my kids to be exposed to many different artists...We don't see color in my home. We were paying homage to people and artists we love and respect -- it's that simple!"
