Kanye West to head to Hindu retreat?

Rapper to take a break after storming the stage at the VMAs

Kanye West is taking a break by heading to a Hindu retreat.

The rapper, who recently received a lot of stick after he stormed the stage at the VMAs complaining that Taylor Swift had beaten Beyonce, is apparently about to spend a month at a Hindu ashram in Pondicherry, India.

“He feels terrible about hurting Taylor Swift,” an insider told Star Magazine. “[He] sees it as another sign that his life is going in the wrong direction since his mother died.”

West, whose mother died in 2007 after complications during surgery, has recently cancelled his joint tour with Lady Gaga.
