After being sequestered in that “suite” that looked like a Sheraton piano bar during a brownout and somehow not winning any awards last night–unlike friggin’ Fergie, who didn’t even bother to show up, the talentless, piss-stained turbo-skank (sorry)– Kanye claimed that his days of letting MTV/the music industry/the cosmos/George Bush kick him around were over (for real, this time):
“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 who was backstage 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.’ “
After which he vowed never to return to any future MTV functions.
After which I vowed to anxiously await the eventual mixtape track where he mumbles over an Of Montreal loop and tries to explain why he was totally taken out of context (yet again), to be released just in time for the next award show he wants/needs to make a scene at.
