Kanye West's Backstage Tantrum Video, Says MTV Exploited Britney

So we told you following the MTV Video Music Awards that Kanye West wasn't a happy man.

After being shut out of all five categories he was nominated in, West threw a tantrum in front of media backstage as the awards show was ending, and then told reporters he was boycotting the awards show because of its bias.

Well, we finally have raw backstage video of his tantrum. You can't see much, but you can certainly hear it:

In a post-VMA interview, West also said he wasn't happy that Britney Spears (photosBritney Spears photos) was given the coveted opening slot over him or anyone else: "I can't believe she would perform. She hasn't had a hit record in years."

But in a radio interview today, West blamed MTV for Britney Spears' performance at the Video Music Awards: "Man, they were just trying to get ratings, and they knew she wasn't ready and they exploited her. They exploited her, they played me and I really don't mess with MTV,"

West said they should have kicked off the show with the first single from his new album, 'Stronger', and he wanted to perform on the show's main stage but was asked to host a suite party.

"So why do you have me do 'Stronger' in a suite, but you end the show with Justin?," he said. "I really made the song `Stronger,' you know, for stadiums."
