Kanye West: Euro MTV Hates Black People

He's pretty sure that he should have won a stupid award. Doesn't take too much to get this guy outraged.

"[My video] cost a million dollars. Pamela Anderson was in it. I was jumping across canyons and shit." When his video doesn't win, Kanye argued, "the awards show loses credibility. Nothing against you, but hell, man."

The rant, which inspired gasps from the audience, carried over into a post-show press conference, in which West admitted to reporters, "I haven't seen [another video nominated for the award]. Possibly it could have been quite good, but no way better than 'Touch the Sky'. That is complete bullshit. 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; I flew a helicopter over Vegas. I did it to be the king of all videos and I wanted to walk home with that award."

"I transcended everything."

Hey, he paid a million dollars, man. He flew a helicopter, he stood on a mountain.

CHris Matthews just said Euro MTV must immediately take the award from the winner and give it to Kanye West or they're raaaaacist.

Thanks to Blog Idaho.

Fairness Update: A troll who calls me a racist points out that Kanye West did not make any reference to race, according to the quotes. So, while the headline might be justified as a joke (and one borrowed, I might add, from the blog I got the story from), hitting that idea a second time seems unfair.

So, a troll convinced me. I've changed the last bit to a knock on Chris Matthews.
