Douchebag Sighting

Apparently Sean "Series of Retarded Nicknames" Combs has some competition in the Asshole Who Most Needs To Get Over Himself category:

COPENHAGEN, Denmark - Rap star Kanye West was named Best Hip Hop artist, but still came off as a sore loser at the MTV Europe Music Awards.

West apparently was so disappointed at not winning for Best Video that he crashed the stage Thursday in Copenhagen when the award was being presented to Justice and Simian for "We Are Your Friends."

In a tirade riddled with expletives, West said he should have won the prize for his video "Touch The Sky," because it "cost a million dollars, Pamela Anderson was in it. I was jumping across canyons."

"If I don't win, the awards show loses credibility," West said.

I don't care how good West's music is supposed to be. He might really be that good. Still -- what a jerkoff. Really. You are not the almighty Bestower of Credibility, junior, not even to some hack euroweenie show (though they did also lay some props on Muse, which definitely shows some good taste).

I dunno. I just hate people like that, spoiled ungrateful pricks who think their shit doesn't stink. There's a hell of a lot of people out in the world -- present company included -- who slaved for thousands of thankless hours for years in shitholes you wouldn't leave your dog in, just for a shot at that brass ring. Most of us never even get that shot, much less a glimpse of the ring.

So sit your stupid ass down, Kanye, go home, drink some Cristall and bang a couple supermodels, and see if you can't get over your own brilliance. Try to be nicer to people on your way up, because you're bound to meet them on your way back down -- which, if you keep acting like a spoiled little shit, is gonna be a lot sooner than you think.

West is actually somewhat listenable as rap music goes, but what he doesnt realize is that he is the Flavor of The Week-about 20 weeks ago. He and anyone else with talent in the music industry is victim to what The Poster Children used to call 'planned obsolescence'.

Now that you've mentioned Diddy, I suppose you should know he wants to be the next James Bond.

Good points, Ron. West clearly doesn't get that the record company is more than happy to let him run up a $1 mil tab on a stupid video. It's all recoupable out of his end, and as you say, his time will be sooner than he thinks.

I never heard the Diddly/Bond thing before, but it doesn't surprise me. It fits the swayve and deeboner image he seems to think he's copyrighted.

Ever see Tracy Morgan's "Lamar Bond" skit on Saturday Night Live? Funny stuff. Basically a trip through a lot of urban black tropes, culminating in "Lamar" offering to seduce the bootylicious Star Jones. "I'ma git up in those Lane Bryants, woman!"

That's what I think of Pee Diddly's feeble front about being the next Bond. He's a talentless little putz, though not completely -- his brief acting turns in Made and Monster's Ball were actually pretty decent. Still, what an insufferable, preening cock he is.
