Well, it should be interesting to see what he has to say about last night's inappropriate behavior!
We were well aware of the fact that Kanye West was downing a bottle of Hennessey prior to the incident at the VMAs last night, but we totally forgot that this isn't the first time he's had an alcohol-induced rant at an MTV event!
Three years ago at the 2006 MTV Europe Music Awards, Kanye stormed the stage when Justice Vs Simian's "We Are Your Friends" beat out his song, "Touch The Sky," and he yabbered on about how he should have won since his clip "cost a million dollars and Pamela Anderson was in it." He later apologized for the stunt, explaining he had a "little sippy sippy" before the production. Aha! MTV must have known that this would happen when they saw the rapper walking the red carpet with a bottle of booze in his hand, right? Or perhaps they planned it themselves?
A source close to production tells X17online that the Kanye drama was "in no way planned" by the network, and the rude rapper was escorted out of Radio City Music Hall shortly after his outburst. While the whole incident was rather unfortunate, it garnered Taylor some extra attention and it certainly didn't hurt the show's ratings! MTV reports that viewership was up 17% from 2008, so even though our source insists that it was 100% Kanye, we have to wonder...
