Kanye West crashed the stage of the MTV Europe Music Awards in Copenhagen yesterday when he lost Best Video to Justice and Simian’s “We Are Your Friends.” He started going off on a rant about why he should’ve won for his video “Touch The Sky,” saying: “It cost a million dollars, Pamela Anderson was in it. I was jumping across canyons. If I don’t win, the awards show loses credibility. Nothing against you, but hell, man.” And in a post-show press conference he also admitted:
“I haven’t seen [the Justice vs. Simian video]. Possibly it could have been quite good, but no way better than ‘Touch the Sky’. That is complete bullshit. I paid a million. Obviously it’s not all about the money, but the response it got transcended everything, it really made great TV. It took a month to film; I stood on a mountain; I flew a helicopter over Vegas. I did it to be the king of all videos and I wanted to walk home with that award.”
Personally, I think my music video should’ve won that award. Sure, all I did was digitally edit together three minutes of Jessica Alba making out with Alessandra Ambrosio while I sang ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ in the background, but if you saw it you’d agree I should’ve won. You’d also agree that I’m the greatest director of our generation and should be given an honorary Nobel Prize for being awesome.
