Kanye To MTV: You Suck!

11/3/2006 10:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West was so miffed at not winning the award for Best Video last night at the MTV Europe Music Awards that he stormed the stage and went on a bizarre, expletive-filled tirade to protest.

Even though he'd won the award for Best Hip-Hop Artist earlier in the evening, West jumped out of his seat in Copenhagen when Justice and Simian (no, we haven't heard of them either) won the Best Video prize for "We Are Your Friends," and crashed the award presentation! He told the stunned audience that he should've won for his "Touch The Sky" because it "cost a million dollars, Pamela Anderson was in it, I was jumping across canyons." And, he added, "If I don't win, the awards show loses credibility."

Elsewhere at the awards, Justin Timberlake, who hosted, won two awards, while the Red Hot Chili Peppers won Best Album.


Mel: I've Got a "Gringo Gut"


Mel Gibson can't handle his booze – and apparently not Mexican food either. He told an audience of Latinos who were actually honoring him for his "Apocalypto" that he has "the gringo gut" and that, during shooting in Mexico, he was "crawling around on [his] hands and knees some days," which, as the AP icily notes, was met with "trails of laughter."

The actor, whose DUI arrest and anti-Semitic tirade will be fictionalized on "Law & Order" tonight, picked up the Chairman's Visionary Award from the Latino Business Association in Beverly Hills. Gibson told the audience that casting unknowns for "Apocalpyto" was like "being at the Super Bowl and getting your quarterback from the audience." He says he cast one actor after seeing him in a juice bar.


For $13 Grand A Month, "SNL" Star Gets Bedbugs for Free


You know that saying about not letting the bedbugs bite? "Saturday Night Live" star Maya Rudolph "Boogie Nights" director Paul Thomas Anderson found out why people say it after their $13,000-a-month Manhattan loft was infested by the tiny creatures. According to a $450,000 lawsuit filed in New York, the couple and their baby moved into the loft last month and immediately found themselves being chewed at night. "The plaintiffs were bitten over portions of their bodies by bedbugs," say the court papers. What's worse, alleges the couple, the elevator in the building was broken so they couldn't escape the infestation easily. The family has moved out -- and have stayed out. The building management had no comment.

Busta Rhymes Busted Again


Yo, Busta: Best not to break the law right in front of the police station. Trouble-prone rapper Busta Rhymes (real name: Trevor Smith) was driving past the Midtown North police precinct in New York last night, reports the New York Daily News, when cops there spotted him talking on his cell phone without a headset while driving, which is a violation of New York state law. The rapper was given a ticket for the offense. In August, Rhymes was charged with assault for allegedly beating up a Bronx man who he says spat on his car.


Party Favors: Cruise's Next Film "Maguire"-Esque ... Streisand Heckler Was – What Else – An Aussie ... Geffen May Have Sold Pollock Dripper for $140 Million


Tom Cruise, newly installed at United Artists, will be making a "dramedy" for UA in the vein of "Jerry Maguire," says FOX News, which adds that MGM has suggested that rather than an action megamovie ... Barbra Streisand's heckler unmasked: The man who threw a drink at Babs during a recent concert was an Aussie with no "political motive or message." Instead, he had just had "one or more too many beers," according to Streisand's flack Dick Guttman (via Page Six). ... Hollywood supermogul David Geffen has sold a famous drip painting by Jackson Pollock for $140 million, believed to be the largest amount ever paid for a painting. Geffen may use the money to buy the Los Angeles Times, says the New York Times.

class and humility personified: Stevie Wonder
Perhaps this piece of crap can learn something from a real talent. Let's see if anyone is still talking about Kanye or his body of work in 20 years. In a fair world he'd be the one wearing the dark glasses.

As a part time resident of New Orleans, let me tell you not only did Ray Nagen screw things up, but so did the governor.

First of all, New Orleans pulls in at least $2 BiILLION dollars a year in tourism. There are jobs everywhere if you want to work.

You cannot tell me that the Mayor and Governor did not know the levies would not hold. Why is it up to everyone but the people of New Orleans to pay for what Ray Nagen and the Governor did not do. Neither Ray Nagen or the Governor demanded that everyone evacuate until it was too late.

New Orleans went down the tubes when Mark Moriel did not become Mayor again and this chick who is the Governor does not know her ass from a hole in the ground.

Nagen and the Governor should quit blaming everyone else for their failures.

God did not do this just because of the blacks living there. Nagen and the Governor fell asleep at the wheel and did not right a wrong with those levies. Take responsibility for your own actions, don't blame God or the President. It's your town, FIX IT.

This overrated jacka$$ needs to shut the f-ck up and get off his high horse. It's people like him that give black people a bad name. I can't understand how after everything that has happened (walking out of the Grammys or whatever award show it was because he didn't win Best New Artist, his President Bush bashing, and now this) that people still want to buy his music. I for one, am proud that I DO NOT support his pathetic a$$. When he was in his car accident and had his jaw wired, maybe they should have kept it wired. Would have saved alot of people from hearing the nonsense that spills out of his racist a$$ mouth!

Seems to me like he was joking. The other guys were laughing and he sounded like he was being sarcastic. That’s my opinion.

What a BIG baby! Wahhhhh. Change his diapers, He needs all the attention he can get. Hopefully after this Europeans will "hate Kanye " after this because he does "not love their decision." At least Justice & Simian create original music and don't rely on making their songs around someone else's "hooks". Who cares if you have not heard of them? That is your problem that you only know hip hop music. There are other styles out there that are equal if not better than hip hop so get out of your bubble, go count your money and stop being a BIG baby. You had some credibility but the small amount that you did have is GONE! Overpaid and WAAAAY over rated. "He's an attention getter". Wahhhhhhhhhhh!

Why is life wasted on such pathetic excuses for human beings like Kanye West. He should just be killed so his organs can be donated to people that will actually appreciate them.

...by the way Kanye...come out of the closet already.

Someone needs to enlighten you Kanye...you are a loser. Plain and simple. Get a reality check from the people you don't pay to blow smoke up your ass and tell you that you are a superstar. No talent, arrogant, low self-worth, pompous, whiny, useless, less than a man. Get a life...and not in the music industry.

kanye behavior was so embarrassingly low class, and i had to laugh him thinking because he spent a million on a video and had sleazy pam anderson in it, he should win? what's wrong with this guy, he's an idiot and a huge embarrassment to act like that in europe. he reminds me of a 5 year old at a birthday party, mad cuz he didn't win ALL of the prizes.. the guy has no class and no real talent either, except to actually believe anyone cares about him.
