Video: Whiny loser loses, whines like a five-year-old at Video Music Awards

posted at 11:53 am on September 12, 2007 by Allahpundit

It’s Kanye, of course, whose ego is so very fragile that he once stormed the stage after being denied an MTV Europe Award. The spin this morning is that he wasn’t much upset about losing — his screeching in the video here about his five nominations notwithstanding — but upset because he wasn’t given the chance to perform on the main stage like Justin Timberlake. According to sources, though, he specifically asked for a more intimate set beforehand.

Whatever. Just enjoy the show. He’s winning his little pissing match with 50 Cent so that should make him happy. Meanwhile, the Judy Garland of our generation finds a mirror and doesn’t like what she sees. Allegedly. Click the image to watch.

I don’t understand why Britney thought she had to be half-naked. A nice, sexy business suit would have been good.

DaveS on September 12, 2007 at 11:54 AM

Why does it always have to be about race?

BadgerHawk on September 12, 2007 at 11:56 AM

He’s the same guy that had himself mock-crucified for the cover of a magazine?

“MTV doesn’t care about black people.”

JayHaw Phrenzie on September 12, 2007 at 11:59 AM

Won’t someone tell this guy he isn’t near as talented as he thinks? PLEASE?

I’m sick of hearing about him.

tickleddragon on September 12, 2007 at 12:02 PM

George Bush was behind this!

srhoades on September 12, 2007 at 12:06 PM

Kanye clearly has an inferiority complex. Don’t think his comments should be headline news all over the interwebs though. Big deal, move on.

flipflopper on September 12, 2007 at 12:06 PM

I was going to say he needs some lessons about Susan Lucci not winning 18 consecutive nominations; but, the words from a little green master came to mind…

“I cannot teach him. The boy has not patience.” Yoda

allie on September 12, 2007 at 12:06 PM

A grown man talking like a 4th grader with baggy pants and a fake gold necklace…oh wait, that’s why kids talk that way.

I’m willing to bet that variations of this phrase will continue to haunt him for the rest of his life.

…and each time, I’ll laugh and laugh.

James on September 12, 2007 at 12:14 PM

Why not boycott MTV? It’s not as though they play music anymore.

Slublog on September 12, 2007 at 12:22 PM

MTV = Mundane Tele-Vision.

I pine for the days of Michael Jackson…how sad is that.

JetBoy on September 12, 2007 at 12:24 PM

Who is buying his music? With illegal d/l, bit torrent and all the other niceties of 2007, who is buying his music?
Talk about emperors with no clothes-all the flash and attitude, making scenes and stirring up controversy; he’s an employee of a record company, and his only talent is controversy. Outrage sells. Much more than his music.

Doug on September 12, 2007 at 12:25 PM

Wait a minute folks. I think this might just be a really big misunderstanding. Are we SURE that he wasn’t just rehersing one of his new songs backstage?

Zetterson on September 12, 2007 at 12:26 PM

You watch MTV? LOL.

Please, guys. Just leave Britney alone!

DaveS on September 12, 2007 at 12:26 PM

Heh. Not anymore. I’m a bit out of their demographic. But I saw the first day of programming.

Video killed the radio star, and now it’s out to get Kanye.

Britney: “I looked like a fat pig.” Yeah, well, and Osama looks like a Muslim POS Terrorist. If the shoe fits …

Drum on September 12, 2007 at 12:36 PM

George Bush doesn’t care about black people.

Kanye needs to go have a long session with his ginormous box of porn that he takes everywhere with him.

They say chronic masturbation will stunt your growth. Kanye has proven that.

BelchSpeak on September 12, 2007 at 12:42 PM

Apparently Chris Rock has a response to Kanye West’s little meltdown. I won’t post the link directly. Follow the link and look for the video that says Chris Rock.

WARNING. It’s Chris Rock people. He’s not known to be PC. Harsh Language. May be considered offensive to some.

Guardian on September 12, 2007 at 12:48 PM

actually the video isn’t called Chris Rock. It’s called Re: Kanye West’s Backstage Meltdown!. My bad.

Guardian on September 12, 2007 at 12:50 PM

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Love it! LOVE IT!
OOoooh…good stuff.

By the way, who did win? PLease tell me it was Tay Zonday!!!

Dork B. on September 12, 2007 at 12:57 PM

Kanye West Hates White People! and black people, and people who win things, and make better records, and himself, and HEY! Is he a muslim?

Masscon on September 12, 2007 at 1:00 PM

What a great use of the English language! How logical and intelligent! He’s a wonderful role model to all young fans!

JayHaw Phrenzie on September 12, 2007 at 11:59 AM

Now is the time to turn him to the dark side. We need to indoctrinate Darth Kanye and turn him loose in a rampage on the left. Let him say the things no one else will say.

He could either become president, or get shot. Or both.

Kini on September 12, 2007 at 1:17 PM

He’s just a musician being shunned by a racist industry. /sarcasm

By the way, doesn’t music usually involve musical instruments and melodies and singing?

stonemeister on September 12, 2007 at 1:26 PM

I noticed on one of his vidz that he refers to himself as…

Mr. West

nword, Please! Who the heck do you think you are, you potential 1 hit wonder? And that “hit” wsn’t even that good, either.

Maybe you should think that it isn’t that MTV or G. Bush doesnt’ care about black people, it’s just YOU. No one else, JUST YOU that we don’t care about.

Mazztek on September 12, 2007 at 2:13 PM

Is he really that much better than Brittany?!!
Or does he think he should win because the color of his skin entitles him to…?

Okay, so I followed your link and accidentally found THIS rant about Britney Spears from some man-woman? thing weeping:

Um … did Allah post on this already and I missed it?

And, uh, well, wtf? Wtf is this? Help?

Professor Blather on September 12, 2007 at 2:55 PM

I made sure to avoid this dick during the ESPN pregrame the other night. Between NBC and ESPN, I won’t be catching any pregame action this year.

JammieWearingFool on September 12, 2007 at 3:35 PM

I predict a string of much more intimate venues for Kanye not too far from now.

saint kansas on September 12, 2007 at 3:36 PM

What a loser! Big cry baby, stomping around like a toddler. I spanked my kids’ butts when they acted like that, sheesh.

My husband was watching Mind of Mencia yesterday, and Carlos had made a video making fun of Kanye. Pretty funny.

StephC on September 12, 2007 at 3:41 PM

nword, Please! Who the heck do you think you are, you potential 1 hit wonder? And that “hit” wsn’t even that good, either.
Mazztek on September 12, 2007 at 2:13 PM

Kanye achieved great acclaim as a producer before he was ever signed as a rapper. The fact that you only know of one hit does not make someone a one-hit wonder.

You don’t have to like his music, but try to avoid going into “rap rage.”

Also, this tongue-in-cheek usage of the phrase “nword” is really kinda pedestrian. But, I realize it has become a rite of passage in some circles to either say, slip in or hint at using the so-called “nword” in public. A few more times and you’ll be eligible for Edge & Irony Merit Badge.

The Race Card on September 12, 2007 at 3:41 PM

Blather,

That was hysterical. Stealing it.

mesablue on September 12, 2007 at 3:56 PM

Young black men in America have a lot of trouble growing up. Rappers and professional athletes are, along with the gangbangers, are some of the most ill disciplined, classless, but arrogant and aimless people in society.

At first, the liberals said it was because of poverty. We all knew that was an excuse. And here is the proof once again. Even with millions, the behavior does not change.

Such a subculture in the black population never before existed until the last 25 years. But a whole generation now has grown up this way. It does not bode well for the future.

jihadwatcher on September 12, 2007 at 3:58 PM

Does anyone still watch MTV? It’s kind of a dinosaur, if you ask me.

Young black men in America have a lot of trouble growing up. Rappers and professional athletes are, along with the gangbangers, are some of the most ill disciplined, classless, but arrogant and aimless people in society.

Yep.

PRCalDude on September 12, 2007 at 4:58 PM

jihadwatcher on September 12, 2007 at 3:58 PM

There is a crisis among young black men. But since when do rappers and professional athletes comprise the spectrum of young, black men? And calling professional athletes ill-disciplined is oxymoronic. By default they endure thousands of hours of structure and rigor to succeed in their respective sports. Also, comparing gangbangers to celebrities belittles their brutality and criminality.

You claim the past 25 years has brought us to some new low in society. What happened in 1982 that spawned this new “subculture in the black population?”

Commercially successful rappers are often ostentatious and arrogant. So what? That’s the kind of person who seeks out super-stardom. Is Kanye West any more obnoxious than Ann Coulter? I like Ann Coulter, but I don’t let that fact blind me to her flaws and foibles.

You’re the same guy who was blaming sharia law for the Southwest mini-skirt ejection. You make this decrees with no supporting evidence, only your anecdotal and superior perspective.

You sweepingly refer to “young black men in America” in the same breath as rappers, athletes and gangbangers. Is that the sum total of your experience with black people? Would you feel better if black culture as we know it, flaws and all, ceased to exist?

You have not been accused of anything, so save the seething retorts. The questions are an attempt to understand an apparently popular conservative paradigm.

***
I submit to you that most Americans have serious misconceptions about the lives of ordinary black people. If I formed my perceptions about Christians from TV, I would be equally confused. Pan out a little. Get out into the world and look for something different than you expect to see.

The Race Card on September 12, 2007 at 5:16 PM

Gotta agree, gangsta rap came late to the show and was promoted primarily by White stations. But the gang lifestyle it emulated was around since the 50′s but exploded in the 80′s after decades of liberal policies destroying our families drug profit soaring thanks to leftist groups like FARC being enabled (by liberals) to flood our streets with cocaine which was cheaply made into crack.

There are Black metal, rock and country bands. But they don’t get shown on the music channels or played on the radio. Inner city youth, of all races, are bombarded with one image of “Blackness” to emulate, but it’s not coming from the Black community at large, unless you think rap labels are really owned by some Black guys. It’s unfair to attack the gangsta culture as part of the break down of the Black community when it is funded and produced and primarily consummed by Whites.

And Fiddy will kick West’s ass eventually.

Rob Taylor on September 12, 2007 at 5:40 PM

It’s a shame West has let his ego get so out of control. He’s making a fool of himself on a regular basis.

I’m listening to his first record right now – good stuff – especially Family Business and especially Jesus Walks

“God show me the way because the devil’s tryin to break me down. The only thing I pray is that my feet don’t fail me now. And I’m afraid there’s nothin I can do now to right my wrongs. I want to talk to God but I’m afraid cuz we ain’t spoke in so long…”

See you in church Kanye.

forest on September 12, 2007 at 6:35 PM

Someone order Kanye a wah-mburger and some French cries. =P

ZK on September 12, 2007 at 6:37 PM

“I Looked Like a Fat Pig”

i’d still hit it.

jummy on September 12, 2007 at 7:06 PM

I bet the next thing he’s going to do is get himself in the news by ranting:

“MTV doesn’t care about black people.”

Ryan Gandy on September 12, 2007 at 8:05 PM

Where the F*** has Kanye been? 3/4 of the MTV award winners are blacks, not to mention the ‘reality’ crappy shows that feature mostly rappers. What a putz.

MsUnderestimated on September 12, 2007 at 8:38 PM

You sweepingly refer to “young black men in America” in the same breath as rappers, athletes and gangbangers. Is that the sum total of your experience with black people?

Figures, there would be one PC liberal in our midst who would take offence to anyone stating the obvious. Too bad Bill Cosby himself would disagree with you about the condition of young black America. And he’s been attacked for doing so. And I’d say he has plenty of experience with black people.

jihadwatcher on September 12, 2007 at 9:50 PM

I live in L. A. and know lots of well educated, funny, intellectual, gourmets, interesting black people of all ages and I like what I see in a lot of the youth. I don’t know where jihadwatcher lives but I can guess not here. Yes there are gangbanger and all but there are lots of smart well educated and Christian black people here too. Just like in every culture…
