Kanye West Boycotts MTV

Tough guy rapper Kanye West is throwing a tantrum because he didn't take home any of the five VMAs he was nominated for, but he's hiding behind the guise that MTV "exploited him."

"I wasn't mad that I just didn't win any awards," Kanye told New York's Z-100. "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."

He also jumps to Britney Spears's defense, saying that the network used her, as well.

"They exploited Britney in helping to end her career," Kanye said. "When Britney was opening, 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.'"

Kanye has vowed to never work with MTV again, but is sure that he'll still come out on top.

"I have a connection in the fans' heart that the press can't stop," he said.

Here's my personal note to Kanye:

Dear Kanye,
Go cry to your momma. Or put your binky back in and SHUT UP.
Thanks,
Tracy
