Yesterday afternoon we got word that at the the MTV Europe Music Awards the mega-low budget/mega-awesome video for Justice vs Simian's "We Are Your Friends" (which we told you about on this site and whose director, Jeremie Rozan, we profiled in our current issue) just pulled off an upset and snatched the award for Video Of The Year. Even more surprising (kind of) were reports that Kanye West threw a tantrum and rushed the stage to rant about not winning despite spending a million dollars on his nominated "Touch the Sky" clip. Whoa, settle down Beavis. Now that there is YouTube confirmation of the outburst, we will say this: ’Ye, you may have had sideburns, Pam, Lupe, and Nia going for you, but it's tough to beat slow motion cat-tastrophes and our girl Amandine outfitted with giant aluminum legs.
