Kanye West appeared on BET’s 106 and Park with a lot to say about his much publicized spat with MTV and their 2007 Video Music Awards. “It was always my dream to open the award shows with ‘Stronger’, and [MTV] talked me into doing the suite thing…Then when they had Britney [Spears] open, I said, ‘How are you going to have Britney open? Because she’s not ready,’” West said of Spears’ critically –panned opening performance.” West has stated that he took issue with the way the VMA performances were set up – that he should have performed on the main stage and not from a private suite where many artists performed for small groups of fans throughout the telecast.
