Kanye West doesn't care about awards, people



Tbd50centkanyewest091107 Kanye West threw another tantrum at the VMAs, saying he would “never return to MTV” after being shut out in all five categories he was nominated in, the AP and MTV report.

“Kanye was watching the closing performance [a medley featuring Justin Timberlake, Timbaland and Nelly Furtado] on a closed-circuit monitor, and he started getting upset,” a source told MTV News.

“He started asking anyone who’d listen why he wasn’t allowed to perform on the main stage. ‘Why did I perform in just a suite?’ he was saying. ‘Justin’s my boy, but even he gets to perform in both a suite and on the main stage? Something’s wrong here.’ ”

The AP added West yelled “That’s two years in a row, man ... I’m trying hard, man, I have the ... No. 1 record, man.”

He also complained about Britney Spears being allowed on the main stage, saying “Brit hasn’t had a hit in like 5 million years and she opens the show?”

Remember, 50 Cent didn't get on the main stage, either, and you don't hear him complaining. Maybe Kanye needs to go out and ruin his career so he’ll start getting some respect.
