We hear that Kanye West was a piss poor loser at the MTV Europe Music Awards held in Copenhagen, Denmark, Thursday. While the guy did win Best Hip Hop Artist, he didn't win any friends when crashing the stage after losing the Best Video Award.

France's Justice and Simian were accepting the prize for their video "We are Friends" when Kanye took over. Here's a snippet from the Associated Press:

In a tirade riddled with expletives, Kanye said he should have won the prize for his video "Touch The Sky," because it "cost a million dollars, Pamela Anderson was in it. I was jumping across canyons." "If I don't win, the awards show loses credibility," Kanye said.

Kanye, lighten up, dude. We don't know of any award shows that have credibility to begin with.
