Kanye West calls out the MTV VMAs for apparently giving too many awards to Bruno Mars, and using him to sell product.
By now we've gotten pretty familiar with Ye's rants, which usually revolve around the rapper's creativity, desire to change the fashion industry etc etc. Last night Yeezy introduced a new topic into his venting session, discussing the MTV Video Music Awards. Apparently Kanye is really upset that Bruno Mars won "all the awards and shit" (but Bruno only one two awards? Macklemore and Justin Timberlake actually nabbed three each).
"When I went to the MTV awards, Rick Rubin hit me, he said, 'are you performing at the MTV awards?' I was like, 'yeah.' He said, 'look man, just do your song and leave.' Sure enough, I'm sitting there, I'm tryna enjoy motherfuckers performing and shit. I see Bruno Mars perform," Kanye tells the audience at the Barclays. "And then they start giving out awards and shit. And Bruno Mars won all the motherfucking awards and shit! And I was just thinking about what Rick Rubin told me, 'cause I don't give no fuck about no TV show! What I care about is, if you an artist, and you work hard as fuck, and the streets say that you deserve that shit, can't no motherfucking networks try to gas somebody up so they can sell some product with the prettiest motherfuck out!"
Mr. West then went on to share a conversation he had with Oprah recently, when Oprah apparently told Ye that people are afraid of him.
"And I sit down with Oprah and she say, 'they scared of you, Ye.' She didn't say I wasn't the most talented..I said, 'Oprah, it's a new day,'" Kanye declared on stage.
That's just part of Kanye's over-ten-minute rant. Watch it all below.
