I personally hope his friend Bono takes him aside and gives him a little talk.
Yeah...what's with him thinking he deserves to win everything? Definitely needs to get over himself.

I was referring to 1993 Bono.

Well he actually does deserve to win most of the awards he's nominated for.

This little tirade also proves that alcohol makes people do and say stupid embarrassing things but it's no excuse. I don't care for Kanye West but I wouldn't say I hate him either. I give him proprs for going after his dream and speaking up. Keep the ego and drunken behavior in check though.

I dunno in the context I don't think it's any more egotistical than Bono claiming U2's the best band in the world- and it's a lot funnier.

But at least Bono doesn't jump on the stage and ruin the spotlight for someone else when he says it

true that's rather asshole-ish.
now if he'd just said it after the show or something i'd think it was hilarious.

This reminds me of when Hansel won the Model of the Year Award in Zoolander.

"People said winning this award couldn't be done, but i guess i showed --"

Where was Lenny Kravitz and/or Billy Zane to help Kanye out?

Yeah touch the sky is a classic, he "borrow" another song a BETTEr song, and rapped about how he was poor and now hes not over the top.

I don't hate him, i just think he is totally overrated!

That can be said by every fan of a band/artist who is nominated for an award.

I don't have any interest in Kanye or care about what awards he wins but his jumping across canyons and Pamela Anderson speech is the funniest thing I've read in this thread.

That is true.

But can you name a mainstream rapper who's better?

And as far as "Touch the Sky" being a ripoff - the entire genre is based on sampling other songs. Kanye's just the best out there right now.
