Sep 10 - Kanye West: MTV Exploited Britney & Me

Kanye West, never known for holding his tongue, is railing against MTV after leaving empty-handed from Sunday's Video Music Awards, charging that the network misled him – and also exploited Britney Spears.

"They exploited Britney in helping to end her career," West told deejay JJ at New York radio station Z100 on Monday. "When Britney was opening [the VMA telecast], 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.'" (Listen to the interview here.)

The rapper doesn't just take umbrage with the handling of Spears, whose performance has been maligned by critics and fans alike.

West tells Z100 he felt misled and "betrayed" by the network, and has promised to never work with MTV again. The rapper says he's already cancelled planned appearances on TRL to promote his new album Graduation. Specifically, West takes issue with the way performances were set up – that he should have performed on the main stage and not from a private suite where many artists performed for small groups of fans throughout the telecast.

"I wasn't mad that I just didn't win any awards," West says. "For me, [MTV] made it seem like performing on the main stage was a bad thing, and the suites were just so great. 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," the rapper continues. "I feel like they tried to make it seem like I was so into everything that was going on in the show."

Another sticking point: Pamela Anderson's racy introduction on the telecast. (Anderson appeared in a music video for West's single "Touch the Sky."] Before West performed "Good Life" from his suite, the former Baywatch star told viewers, "One of the best times I've ever had was making out with the next performer in the middle of the desert. I think I had my tongue so far down his throat I could taste his fiancée – and I might need a repeat performance later tonight."

"I'm engaged, and I feel like it's disrespectful to my relationship," West says of Anderson's remarks, which he claims the network a.ssured him would not happen.

When JJ pointed out that West was being pretty blunt by speaking out against MTV, the rapper responded in a characteristically unapologetic fashion: "I have a connection in the fans' heart that the press can't stop."

There was no immediate response from MTV. Stay tuned

This n*gga needs to seek therapy. He's got too many issues. He complains more than chicks do. Just waiting to see how his sales do next week and how he reacts to that.

how did they exploit britney?....they gave her an opportunity to flourish or fail....and she failed...not their fault she sucks and her performance was terrible....would mtv get the credit if her performance was incredible and helped jumpstart her comeback?...no....not that i care about any of this anyway cuz i couldnt watch more than 3 minutes of the vmas before i realized there isnt anything entertaining about it

So many haters and they're so quick to hate. I see reason for him being PO'd at MTV for some of that sh*t.

I mean, if you don't win awards, that's too bad, but the Anderson thing and the Britney thing were pretty dirty.

^^ no fu*k THAT! if you lose you lose. you are supposed to be a professional. ANYONE who crys and bi*ches about NOT winning is a little sore losing bi*ch.

besides, why all the dumb sh*t? the award will just sit in some case somewhere anyways. besides, i would MUCH RATHER win a grammy than a dumb a.ss MTV video award.

he takes what he's blessed with for granted

how many dudes would wish to perform on tv much less at the VMA's!?
THis year whether you like it or not ...they gave hip hop alot of shine here....Kanye had the most on screen time other than Justin timberlake ...and he stilll bi*ching?

I mean sure he didn't get the main stage but I mean he did BEFORE in previous VMA's

It's like he see himself so much bigger than what he is ....great artist but many dudes would love to have what he have...and he's sh*ttin on it like he could get more than that in the future....
