MTV has announced that Kanye will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday. The award honors “his career-spanning groundbreaking videos, legendary VMA performances, and continued impact on music, art, fashion, and culture”.
Kanye took to Twitter on Thursday to publicly apologize to Beck regarding his behavior at this year’s Grammy awards.
It was originally thought that Kanye taking the stage during Beck’s acceptance speech was a joke. An interview with E! later suggested this was not the case, with Kanye claiming Beck was unworthy of the award.
Kanye also expressed his regret in an interview with Ryan Seacrest earlier this month, blaming it on a misunderstanding.
Kanye and the rest of the GOOD Music family will be performing live at tonight’s 2012 BET awards (Sunday, July 1).
Kanye won four Grammys at last night’s award show. They were Best Rap Performance for “Otis”, Best Rap Song and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “All of the Lights”, and Best Rap Album for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
The Song of the Year award, which Kanye was nominated for “All of the Lights” went to Adele for “Rolling in the Deep”.
As we reported in December, Kanye is up for 8 Grammy Awards at tonight’s show, including Song of the Year for “All of the Lights” and two nominations for Best Rap Album.
The show takes place tonight at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and will be broadcast live in the U.S. on CBS at 8pm EST.
Ultimately it’s inconceivable that Grammy thinks MBDTF is not one of the five best albums of the year when in actuality it’s one of the best albums of the past five years…
The nominees for the 54th Annual Grammy Awards have just been announced and Kanye West has received 8 nominations in total, including one for the prestigious Song Of The Year award for “All of the Lights”.
