Kanye's Backstage Meltdown @ VMAs 2007

Kanye's Backstage Meltdown @ VMAs 2007

Watch. this.

Kanye West, whose album drops today, had a complete meltdown backstage at the 2007 Video Music Awards. The rapper goes completely haywire, hating on MTV for using Britney Spears to open up the show and losing in all five categories that he was nominated for. Kayne‘s so fumed, he even canceled his appearance on TRL today, missing out on a chance to hype up his new album.

Here’s Kanye‘s rant transcribed but watch/listen to the video below!!!

“**** MTV. Y’all heard what the **** I said… Five nominations. I ****in’ lost to Black Eyed Peas last year, man. I’m never coming to MTV. Ya’ll find Britney. Get Britney. Get a real ****in’ artist. Get Britney Spears. I ain’t ****in’ with this pop ****. God****. Give me a ****in’ chance. Give a black man a chance. I’m tryin’ hard. I got the ****in’ #1 record. I’m tryin’ man. I don’t even get a ****in’ chance. They don’t want a ****in’ black man in that position.”

    Poor Kanye…He only made $20 million last year…He’s so right…Black men do need a chance…How is he supposed to live off of $20 million?…I don’t know how he has the number one album when his album came out today, not on Sunday…But that’s neither here nor there I suppose…

  • Idlemess

    At least he speaks his mind and let MTV know how he feels. What a load of $#!+ that show is anyway. Hardly plays videos and plays the same all the time.

    Kanye is an artist who is competitive and in his mind he feels that he is deserved of an award. Come on he performs on the show and to be snubbed two years in a row? He has very good videos for his music and not idiotic portrayals.

    Who can blame the guy for wanting to win a man on the moon. Ahh c’mon

  • Donna

    OMG! BEHIND THE SCENES ARE ALWAYS BETTER! CELEBRITITES HAVE SO MANY SECRETS! lmao!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • [~Famous~]

    kanye’s saying exactly what all losers think, he just says it out loud.

  • missy

    I LOVE ME SOME Kanye!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • [~Famous~]

    Jeff23, and you repeated it! really?!?

  • Bower

    ugh. i hate him. get a life. he needs to go away. He doesnt have the #1 cd!! and i surely hope he wont. jeez.

  • Nick

    I think hes referring to what he puts into his work compared to other people. I mean he should know he is in the industry.

  • mandy

    Like someone said earlier, Don’t the fans vote for who receives the awards? If so, then I guess he should be directing that race-card rant toward the fans. Geez, it’s not like an MTV moon man is a freakin Grammy. Get over it.

    Britney Spears as the opening act attracted WAY more viewers than Kanye West would have. MTV knew that, and they are going to go where the ratings are. Once again, Get over it. Last time I checked, a VMA didn’t represent an artist “making it”. I’m sure he will get a Grammy this year which is all he should really care about anyway. I love his music but he is a titty baby. Makes me like him less and less.

  • Brit Chick

    Im not surprised seriously MTV have to be taking the p.iss when they let that idiotic Britney open the flaming show, then Kanye isnt acknowledged with an award? he has worked his arse off to get to where he is, and when you think about it, it is a bloody travesty he hasnt won one award, what the hell is that all about? at least he speaks his mind, and tells it like it is! Kanye was robbed of 5 damned categories he was nominated for, and he doesnt get even one? that is an absolute joke! same thing happened to Craig David over here, he was nominated about 5 times for a Brit Award, simply because his record company werent well known!! I dont blame Kanye one bit!

  • Tia

    I would comment about Kanye being a total bitch but #7 Vic is the real bitch you fucking motherfucker!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • jett-lass

    I am tired of this race card crap… If you flip it and make him a white guy in this industry–he wouldn’t be where he is now. Maybe your music just sucks kanye… what do you think about that?

  • joy

    wow. he is really pissed. it’s hilarious!

  • tzy

    I HATE HIM HES SO FULL OF IT!!

  • Tia

    Oh and another thing Dick,oh I’m sorry Vic ,thing that “porch monkey” as you called him is a fucking successful millionaire while your still living at home in your mothers basement with one hand down your pants jerking off to Kanye’s videos

  • [~Famous~]

    #1 record, meaning – song – single – stronger! moron lol

  • Katie

    7 Lillie : 09/11/2007 at 4:18 pm – fans only vote for 2 of the awards, the rest are up to MTV.

  • It’s Cuz I’m White

    Oh, spare me. Get the FCUK over yourself, you jackazz. It’s not because you’re black. Believe it or not, not *everyone* only thinks about race. It’s just mofos like you who, whenever something goes wrong, they play the “It’s cuz I’m black” card. Maybe Britney should have said, “You all didn’t like my performance because I’m white.” Yeah, but nobody would’ve taken her seriously. Sheez. If you want to end racism, then stop basing everything on your fcuking race. I don’t give a sh!t if you’re black. I just don’t like you because you’re an @sshole. And MTV doesn’t give a sh!t about your race either. They want the person who will make them the most money, and Britney proved she could with her sorry self. LMAO They had Chris Brown and Rihanna perform, didn’t they? They had 50 and Ashanti and Diddy there, and you have the nerve to say that it’s because you’re black. Shut the fcuk up, you idiot. SOME people look at people as people, not as blacks and whites.

  • mel

    Oh wow he was well p*issed. I don’t think MTV will want him there anyway. 2 years in a row of throwing a hi ssy fit, no thank you!

  • wow

    lmfao! is it that serious? was he crying! what a fricken loser!!!!!!!!

  • Veritaserum♥

    2 Oops : 09/11/2007 at 4:12 pm

    ROTFLMAO!! talk about a bad loser Hmmmmmmm i wonder if he’s a Troll?

    —————————————-
    Hahaha..!
    I keep seeing that word “Troll” all over this website..what does it really mean..do you mean an actual troll or what?

  • [~Famous~]

    lol i think he was really crying.

  • shut up LOSER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I HATE THIS FUKIN BASTARD I REALLY DO, HE REALLY PISS ME OF I’M SO SICK OF HIM CRYING EVERYTIME HE DOESN’T WIN SOMETHING, HES SO AROGANT HE THINK HES A GIFT TO MANKIND BUT HES NOT GET OVER URSELF YOU FUKING LOSER, AND WHY DOES HE ALWAYS HAVE TO BRING RACE INTO EVERYTHING I’M BLACK AND I DIDN’T SEE ANY RASCISM WHEN I SAY THE SHOW INFACT THERE WAS NONE SO WHATS HIS FUCKIN POINT, I REALLY HATE KAYNE WEST, HES TOO FULL OF HIMSELF

  • shoes4life

    I have never cared for Kanye, especially after the way he acted at the Grammy’s I think it was two years ago he threw this same rant.

    To me people who cry to be recognized are the ones who don’t get the recognition they probably do deserve but because of their attitude of thinking they are entitled to something makes people not want to recognize them because of their arrogance. Maybe when Kanye brings his self off of his personal HIGH horse he may get some recognition. Until then he will most likely continue to be snubbed, because crying at the network surely won’t get you any further, if anything other shows/networks will most likely try to avoid you, no matter how good your sales are.

  • Littlelamb

    I can’t look at him and not think of Bubba from Forrest Gump. He should seriously be far more concerned about the Grammy’s and American Music Awards. Did someone forget the VMA’s started as a spoof on artists HELLO!

  • jess

    agreed. kanye west is a loser. not only is he a loser but he is a jacka** and an embarrassment to the black community. okay, an embarrassment to america in general. who does he think he is? and where the f**k does he get the idea that he has the #1 record?? personally i don’t think anyone will give a rat’s a** if he ever comes back to MTV! the guy is a moron.

  • lavagirl

    Actually Kanye has a point, he has had more no 1′s than Britney in recent years and I’m sure he would have given a better performance than Britney on the night.

    MTV went for controversy to get viewers watching rather than acknowledging good music videos done in the past year.

    Stay strong Kanye!

  • *

    He is too funny

  • pancakebottom

    Crybaby.

  • shoes4life

    I have an idea for Kanye since he don’t like the way he has been treated, why don’t he start his own network and award show, surely he has the means to do so. Then he can give himself all of the praise by showing only his videos, talk about his life, and give himself an award each year. Otherwise, he needs to shut his pie hole. I am so sick of him crying like a whinny brat who didn’t get his way! Apparently, the public didn’t choose him just like they didn’t choose the other 3 or 4 folks who didn’t win that was in the same category as him. You don’t hear them complaining or cursing the world for not recognizing them. Geez!!

  • S.

    Exactly. People of all colors lose at all sorts of things all the friggen time and only a few morons such as Kanye show their asses by crying and b*tching about it.

    At least he didn’t try to upstage the winners by jumping up on the stage when they won like he did last time. Whiney attention whore.

  • sasha

    HE’S A REAL LOSER

  • JenJen

    Hey, patmyscrotch and famous, did all Brangelina fans run you guys off their threads. Two loosies meeting in same place and ranting and raving on some super ego black artist.

  • ryann

    I think it has less to do about race, and more to do with his his attitude.

  • Not Blond

    Speak the truth Kayne – though no one likes to hear it. Sure he could keep it to himself – but even JT complained about MTV when he won. Too many shi**y reality shows and not enough music. I guess they forgot what the M in MTV stands for. Brit was only watched because everyone was hoping for her to fall flat on her chicken fried as@ – and she certainly delivered. She’s the loser.

    Kayne should suck it up though. His music is a thousand times better than the pop crap of the shit*eys of the world and he will have an enduring career.

  • Sharon

    Regardless if he has the number one record, it’s MTV’s VIDEO awards.

  • *~*Jinny*~*

    Dam.. someone shove a pacifier in his mouth already!

  • Wooden Legs Angelina

    Maybe Angelina and Brad will adopt this baby – oh but he is from the US prolly not

  • Just saying

    think he cries like this at the BET awards? Btw does Britney, JT or Fergie perform at the BET awards??

  • Good point

    Excellent point, #49.
