Here's how it went down:
Okay, that's a spoof (the real video is embargoed).
UPDATE: Okay, here it is fo' riz-eal:
Here's some info from Dickopedia. Kanye aparrently has award show issues:
- In 2006 West lost Best Video at the MTV Europe Awards and, with the grace and class we’ve come to expect from him, jumped on stage saying, “Fuck dis! (My video) cost a million dollars, Pamela Anderson was in it, I was jumping across canyons and shit.”
- After the Grammy nominations were released that year, West said he would "really have a problem" if he didn't win “Album of the Year.” He lost, but miraculously managed to stay in his seat.
- The release of West's 2007 album, "Graduation," was preceded by another now-famous outburst at the MTV awards where, backstage, he was seen shouting, “Give a black man a chance!” "Graduation" was released on September 11th, because nothing commemorates a national tragedy like a song called “Drunk and Hot Girls.”
- At the 2009 VMAs, singer Taylor Swift beat out Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Pink and Beyonce to win the award for Best Female Video, Kanye West stormed the stage, took her microphone, and said Beyonce had been robbed. "Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time!" He screamed about her "Single Ladies" performance. Beyonce, of course, won Video of the Year, and had West waited til the end of the show to freak the hell out he might have seen that.
