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.”

    There is nothing respectful about crying like a whiny a$s. Justin Timberlake cried about there not being enough videos being shown on MTV and he looked just as stupid as Kanye did for doing so. Sorry folksies but it’s NOT about what the “artist” wants but it’s about what the PUBLIC wants and obviously they want more reality shows than music videos. And they want Kanye and Justin to STFU and make some music, no one gives a $hit about their opinions. You would think that as much as these people make off the public they would be considerate enough not to shove their opinions down our throats.

    I do agree with Kanye, but there is a way to act when you’re at an award ceremony(even if it’s MTV)…and that wasn’t it…

    @ 37:

    Britney has not had a #1 hit in years because she has not had a cd in years.
    What the f**k is Kanye talking about. It;s not because he’s black.
    Britney has never won a Moonman either and hse has done more for Mtv that Kanye has; but you don’t see her bitching about it. Kanye, grow he hell up!

    I don’t think he is such a baby. He does bring great music and amazing videos. He has to be recornized for that. Only few alternative hip-hop artists can pull out the way Kanye does. He is the man. It is about the music and what it represents. His personality… I don’t care at all. At least, he puts out something and not all talk.

    LMAO

    what a looser

    haha

    bataglio Says:

    there goes; what in the fkc does ‘black’ have to do with anything! so sick of this. frikkin rihanna won a bunch of crap, and last time she looked in a mirror, she hadn’t turned white or anything.

    i hope this a$swipe keeps his word, never collaborates w/MTV again, and fades off into the sunset

    fyi Says:

    i love kanye’s music and his statements like mtv really exploited britney just to get high ratings and having sarah silverman come out rt. after her was all planned really makes alot of sense; however, someone should really talk to kanye about not burning bridges and never letting anyone outside of the family know what you are thinking-ala marlon brando….kanye has a bright future but he needs to learn self-discipline to the fullest extent and stop complaining even if he is rt.

    fyi Says:

    also kanye is a typical artist…very out-spoken and artsy

    America Says:

    He is an a$$! Why does a black man always and I mean always throw RACE in to every little THING! Get a life!

    Becs Says:

    Yet people will still buy this low-life, no-talent, sore-loser, crybaby’s CD. He seriously needs to come out of the closet and get over himself. He’s such an a– yet people still buy his record. Wish his jaw was still wired shut…maybe then we wouldn’t have to listen to the stupid crap coming out of his mouth.

    SUNSHINE WILLIAMS~~~ Says:

    BECAUSE THAT IS HOW WE FEEL! AND THAT IS HOW WE SEE IT!

    IT IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE RACISM! I CAN UNDERSTAND WHERE HE IS COMING FROM, BUT BE REAL..IT IS BETTER MUSIC OUT THERE THAN HIS!

    BRITNEY, HAS SOLD MORE RECORDS THAN HIM, AND I THINK THAT SHE HAS ONLY 1 AWARD! LOOK LOOK HOW LONG IT TOOK MARTIN S. TO WIN A OSCAR, AND HE IS ONE OF THE BEST MOVIE DIRECTORS! YOU DIDN’T SEE HIM THROWING A FIT!

    Des Says:

    I feel him, I’d be pissed too. It’s not about winning a moonman, it’s about knowing how hard he’s worked only to get shafted. MTV isn’t for hip hop, it caters to white music so black artists may as well give up. The only black artist they want to give something to is Rihanna because she’s the closest thing to white. Speak ya mind ‘ye and please don’t bother with that VMA garbage again.

    Gingerot Says:

    Give the freaken black man have a chance?? hello, he should be hella’ p|ss at Timbaland cause he decided on the performers this year… hehehe..

    Kanye, stop whining like a dayem b|tch… Your money from your record sells are better than winning some dumb award, idiot!!

    Be Man, man!!

    Jennifer Says:

    All he ever do is complain! Complain! Whine! Whine! whine! like ***** loser!!!
    Complain about how George Bush hates black people… Complain that his video cost a million freaken dollars and he should’ve won…
    Complain this year about MTV and Britney…
    Shut the ***** up!!!

    Kanye, if you whine so much, don’t do any more music. Go live in Antartica, idiot!

    dancingqueen Says:

    When did the MTV “moon man” become the symbol of professional acheivement? I could make one of the f..ckin statues if that would shut him up.

  24. 74
    dancingqueen Says:

    #55 ann…don’t think that all black people whine when they feel slighted. Every time I see Kanye I wish he wasn’t black. He is such a phony dumb*ss, who can’t even appreciate what he has thus far. Pride goeth before the fall.

  25. 75
    ELi Says:

    why is he so full of himself.
    godd, everytime something happens to him he feels its about his race, bush doenst care about black people, give a black man a chance.

    hes pathetic
