Tyler, the Creator was so excited to win his first Moon Man, that he really couldn’t formulate many non-expletive-filled thoughts while giving his acceptance speech at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards Sunday in L.A. While accepting his Best New Artist award, the rapper told the crowd he was about to cry, and then dropped a whole bunch of F-bombs.
“Yo, I’m excited as f*** right now, yo,” he said, beginning his mostly bleeped-out speech. “I wanted this sh** since I was 9. I’m about to cry. This is for my little brother Earl. He’s not here right now. I really can’t believe I’m here right now.”
He continued: “I didn’t write a thank you speech. I don’t know. F***. To all the kids watching, you can do this sh**. Thank you.”
The 20-year-old beat out fellow Best New Artist nominees including Big Sean (“My Last,” featuring Chris Brown), Foster the People (“Pumped Up Kicks”), Kreayshawn (“Gucci Gucci”) and Wiz Khalifa (“Black and Yellow”).
