Kanye West Flips Out at EMAs

Kanye West doesn't care about white people. Well, not about Simian and Justice, at least. They won Best Video honors at MTV's EMAs (a European version of the VMAs, I believe) for "We Are Your Friends," and the rapper apparently crashed the stage to complain about not winning the award for his "Touch the Sky" video.

The hip hop star spat, "F*ck dis! [My video] cost a million dollars, Pamela Anderson was in it, I was jumping across canyons [not a reference to Pamela Anderson's breasts], and sh*t! If I don't win, the awards show loses credibility. Nothing against you (J&S), but hell man."

Yes, he did just use the word "credibility" in reference to an MTV video awards show. It looks like, with Axl Rose in semi-permanent-maybe-retirement, someone has finally stepped in to fill the batshit crazy egomaniac vacuum in the music world. It's about time!

After the awards, West raged on at the press conference. "That is complete bullsh*t, I paid a million. Obviously it's not all about the money, but the response it got transcended everything, it really made great TV. It took a month to film; I stood on a mountain [also not a reference to Pamela Anderson's breasts]; I flew a heliocopter [sic] over Vegas. I did it to be the king of all videos and I wanted to walk home with that award."

It wasn't all animosity from Kanye, though. He had no problem losing to Justin Timberlake for the Best Male award: "Obviously Justin should have won, he's on fire and he's an inspiration to me."

Pity the name "Ludacris" is already taken.

    What’s next Kanye? MTV doesn’t care about black people? When is this piece of shit going to be hit by lightning? Seriously, I am sick and tired of him throwing tantrums every time. Like the world revolves around him or something. The last time he was on that Katrina fundraising show, I thought it was so classless of him to make an irresponsible statement, not that I am for Bush, but by God, does he always have to steal the spotlight and make himself controversial? This shit needs to grow up. His music maybe good, but he is not the greatest and I am glad he didn’t win because ego maniacs like him doesn’t deserve it. One of these days, he’s going down. Award shows should ban his ass. And I agree, his action was definitely rude.

    He spent a million on making a video? He should’ve spent that & more trying to make better songs…wait, Did I say songs? HA! More like better YouTube rants…F*cking Racist!

    His sh!t will not be remembered for anything in music history that’s why he wants an award now.
    He will be short lived.

  • I adore his music, but he is the most egotistical piece of shit in music today. Honestly, who does that? Storm the stage with sour grapes?

    I don’t care how much your video cost or what you did. It’s really rude to the winners and even though he said no disprespect to them, it doesn’t matter, it was disrespectful.

    “If I don’t win, the awards show loses credibility”, has to be the greatest A55-CLOWN quote of all times!

    what a pathetic joke that guy is.
