Tyler, the Creator Takes to Twitter to Slam YouTube Music Awards

first_imgYouTube will host the first YouTube Music Awards on Sunday, November 3, where the live-streaming event honors artists and songs you’ve heard over the past year.  The video service promised it would be a “new kind of awards show.”  Considering YouTube mostly consists of videos created by the public, the list of nominees included more award show regulars then expected: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Justin Bieber and One Direction.After the list of nominees was revealed, Tyler, the Creator, a performer at the upcoming award show, had a few choice words to say about it.  In a tweet early this morning (October 23), the rapper wrote, “YOUTUBE AWARDS COULDVE FUCKING HAD NOMINATIONS ON COOL CREATIVE VIDEOS SHIT BUT NOOOO AGAIN ITS THE MOST TEENY BOPPER POP SHIT. YOU ARE BUTT.”He adds, “WHY NOT GIVE AWARDS TO JUST DIRECTORS, THESE FUCKING WEAK ASS ARTIST DONT COME UP WITH THESE SHOTS OR SIT IN COLORING FUCK THEM THEY SUCK.”Although his tweets are hilarious and dead on, there are better ways, and better comebacks.Los Angeles artist, Flying Lotus, also took to Twitter to express his criticisms about the YouTube Music Award nominations.  “Seems like the YouTube music awards are pretty much the same as the VMAs. I don’t really see the point.”Flying Lotus goes on, “If it’s all about hits sure I get it but let’s be fair. YouTube award nominations clearly don’t care about cutting edge/innovation.”He continues, “They had an opportunity to shine a light on all the artists that they helped to gain notoriety just to shit on them for uber famous acts.” His last tweet reads, “No disrespect to the nominees yadda yadda.”Tyler, the Creator, along with Eminem, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, Avicii, M.I.A., and Earl Sweatshirt are all set to perform at the YouTube Music Awards held at New York City’s Pier 36.–Lindsey Winepol[Via Spin.com]last_img
