Remember all that shouting Kanye West always directed at MTV a few years ago when he never won any awards? Well, I think he finally figured out what the rest of us already knew. MTV fixes their awards shows. I'm not going to go into the whole Britney thing from this past VMA, but I think we all know the fix was in and Kanye finally realizes it is in as well.
The European version of the VMA's was held this week and Kanye won an award which, for the first time in his entire life he feels he didn't deserve. Yep, that's right.
“I won nothing last year and I'd brought out Stronger. Then this year, just because I was there, I won best urban act. This was Lil Wayne's year.”
Wow, attendance playing a factor? Who would have thunk that an award show would do something like that. Oh, and as an additional thank you gift to Britney Spears for her earlier MTV interviews and appearances, she grabbed two more awards in Europe and this is what Kanye had to say about that.
“Britney Spears over Rihanna? Are you serious?”
Yes, MTV is serious and they thought Britney selling a few albums was much better than Rihanna selling like 10 million. But then again, Rihanna also didn't come to MTV to do an exclusive interview which gave the network big ratings. So, next year Rihanna, you need to do something awful, and then come talk about it exclusively on MTV and you will walk away with all the awards you can carry.
Even Kanye's friends were not left out of his observation.
“I mean f**king Jared Leto? He's my boy but he shouldn't have won over some of those other artists.”
Yes, but those other artists didn't trek over to Europe and Jared Leto did. Hence, Jared gets a nice big award.
