Breaking news! Kanye West hates MTV and never wants to work with them again. For exploiting Britney Spears! And ending her career. "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.'" He says all this to Z100, which as a corporate outpost of Clear Channel is an ideal venue in which to talk shit about the Viacom-controlled "game." Kanye West is really the only reason to continue paying attention to pop culture. [Z100]
I can't stand Britney and Kanye does nothing for me either, as his music's lame and he's a real whinger! But I can't help, but agree with him, as I think that Britney's performance could be likened to people watching a car crash. MTV should have know better than to let her perform if she was in no condition to. It seemed intentionally cruel. She's obviously pretty stupid, and I know that she's made a fortune out of completely rubbish music... but to be allowed to make a fool of yourself (no matter how deluded you are!) on such a massive scale seems very irresponsible on MTV's behalf. Maybe he should write and produce a track for Britney and we'll see how he feels afterwards!
