Kanye West: 'Bruno Mars Won All The Motherf--king Awards'

Posted: Updated:

Kanye West made his second stop at Brooklyn's Barclays Center this week, performing to a packed crowd at the borough's popular venue on Wednesday night. The 36-year-old rapper took a moment during the concert to expound on everyone from Bruno Mars to Oprah Winfrey.

Kanye addressed the MTV Video Music Awards, saying producer Rick Rubin encouraged him to "just do your motherf--king song and leave." (West performed "Blood on the Leaves" during the August awards ceremony.) Evidently he didn't leave soon enough: "Bruno Mars won all the motherf--king awards and s--t. And I was thinking about what Rick Rubin told me, because I don’t give a f--k about no TV show. But what I care about is if you’re an artist and you work hard as f--k and the streets say that you deserve that s--t. Then can’t no motherf--king networks try to gas everybody up so they can sell some product with the prettiest motherf--ker out."

Later in his sermon, Kanye discussed his relationship with Winfrey, and the advice she offered him, which provided riffs of Kanye singing, "Oprah, it's a new day." The rest of his 10-minute speech includes words on his fashion career, the stigmas still in place against rap, and the reactions to his "Yeezus" album. Check out Kanye's words from his Wednesday Barclay's show above.
