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.”

    It's Cuz I'm White Says:

    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.

    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.

    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 Says:

    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 Says:

    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!

    shoes4life Says:

    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. Says:

    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 *****.

    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.

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

    Not Blond Says:

    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 *****eys of the world and he will have an enduring career.

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