Kanye West: MTV betrayed Britney Spears and me
Kanye West has further criticised MTV after he was shunned at the MTV Video Music Awards at the weekend.
Kanye’s first outburst came just after the event on Sunday when he complained about being overlooked for an award, despite being nominated in five categories.
Speaking on New York radio station Z100 yesterday, he explained: “I wasn’t mad that I just didn’t win any awards. It was my dream when I made ‘Stronger’ to open up the VMAs with a real power performance.”
“And I just feel like I got betrayed by them. I feel like they tried to make it seem like I was so into everything that was going on in the show.”
Kanye had also blasted Britney Spears‘for being given the opening slot but he has now explained he felt sorry for her: “They exploited Britney in helping to end her career.”
“When Britney was opening [the show], near the end, I felt so bad for her. I said, ‘Man, it’s a dirty game. This game will chew you up and spit you out.’”
