Kanye West apologises to New Rave godfathers

He still thinks his made the better video though

Kanye West has issued an apology to New Rave godfathers Justice vs Simian after he stormed the stage when they won Best Video at European MTV Music Awardss last week (November 2).

The rapper was upset when his video for ‘Touch The Sky’ was pipped by ‘We Are Your Friends’.

He stormed onstage and shouted: “Fuck this! If I don’t win, the awards show loses credibility. Nothing against you, but hell man.”


Following his outburst the rapper has now issued an apology and blamed the incident on the amount of booze he consumed that night.

He told MTV: “It was just out of raw emotion. I had a couple of drinks but I was more drunk with adrenaline. I was drinking at the awards show because I feel so at home at awards shows.

“On one hand, I felt like I should have won. But if anybody watches the show, I was laughing. People don’t understand my dry sense of humour. I went up there and said, ‘Hell nah, I should have won’.”

Despite his apology he still felt that he should have won Best Video.

He added: “‘Touch the Sky’ was definitely better than that. [Their video] was good. It didn’t cost a lot of money — I know it’s not about the money, but when you got drinks in you, that’s the first thing you’re gonna say.”
