From the Daily Mail:
[Kanye West] cancelled his appearance after deciding he didn’t want to attend tonight’s ceremony in Los Angeles without his girlfriend Kim Kardashian by his side.
The reality star, 31, had a prior engagement at Fashion’s Night Out in New York, where she will be promoting her True Reflection perfume at Lord & Taylor.
A source tells Mail Online: ‘Kim’s in New York for her fragrance launch and Kanye didn’t want to go to the VMAs if she couldn’t be there.’
Kayne’s song Mercy featuring Pusha T, Big Sean & 2 Chainz is up for Best Hip-Hop Video and Best Editing. He was not scheduled to perform.
OK, so it’s not exactly because no one wants Kim Kardashian there (though I have no doubts that no one wants Kim Kardashian there and that’s the real reason she has her stupid perfume launch scheduled on the same damn day as the MTV VMAs). But come on. Wittle baby man can’t go out in pubwic wifout his wittle girlfwiend? Doesn’t wittle baby man have any real fwiends? F-CKING GAG ME. I wish these two would fall into a radioactive pit (or just, you know, Paris Hilton’s vagina) and never come out, and that way they’d never have to endure the horrors of being apart.
Me, I’m not sorry that Kanye won’t be there tonight. I’m sure he’d just give me heartburn every time I looked at him and his stupid face, anyway, so thanks for doing a girl a solid, man.
