I just don't get it. I mean is Mr. West going to throw a temper tantrum every time he loses an award. When will he learn that these award shows are not about the best artists, but rather the artist with the best backing behind the scenes. He needs someone like Clive Davis on his team then he'll be guaranteed to win all the awards he so covets. Show business is just like every other business. It's politics baby...pure and simple. Don't get it twisted.

  1. I listened to Kanye address this moment on Hot 97 the next day and he had some justifiable points. In a nut shell, MTV will tell artists anything to get them to do what they want for ratings. He is tired of being manipulated by them and has had enough experiences with them to determine that they rarely have the best interest of the artists in mind. More often, their only concern is ratings. Once I heard his side of the story, I at a minimum understood where he was coming from even if I didn't like how he went about expressing it.

  2. I understand what you are saying and I am pretty sure he was justified in some of the things that he was saying, but sometimes the delivery can taint the message. How he went about doing it was completely wrong. Instead of appearing as a person who was wronged he came across as a spoil brat that was throwing a temper tantrum. He has to be smarter (which I am sure he is). MTV is a business and with every business the most important thing is the bottomline period.
