During his heartfelt chat with viewers, West dissed MTV's VMAs and other awards shows for pitting artists against each other at the annual events. He also called out MTV specifically for using the clip of him crashing the stage during Swift's Best Female Video Award acceptance speech at the 2009 VMAs and announcing that she'd be presenting his Vanguard Award to him in an attempt to increase their ratings.

He also went on to admit that his dramatic speech was the product of more than him wanting to inspire "the kids" -- the title he lovingly gave to the fans chanting his name and watching him during his acceptance speech. "I rolled up a little something. I knocked the edge off," West said about his pre-speech ritual for the night.
