Kanye West Blames Fashion Frustration For His 2009 MTV VMA Outburst

Kanye West blames his outburst at the MTV Video Music Awards on being passionate for the music industry and his frustration at failing to land a fashion contract.

The American rapper, who talked to the fans at a Los Angeles performance, confirmed the rumors that he had left the country in the aftermath of the VMAs.

He treated the audience to a new song, in which he revealed his struggle to convince fashion bosses to let him release a line of his designs. But he assured the fashion houses that they would acquire the “quiet” Kanye. He has two sneaker deals – one with Nike and another with Louis Vuitton.
