Kanye West has lashed out at Britney Spears’ upcoming performance at MTV’s Video Music Awards.
West, who drops his new album “Graduation,” on Tuesday, said he was not excited about the “Baby One More Time” singer’s return to the show.
“I can’t believe she would perform,” he told the Associated Press. “She hasn’t had a hit record in years.”
West made his comments in Las Vegas, where the VMAs will take place Sunday night at The Palms.
According to MTV.com, West is scheduled to perform his track, “I Wonder,” on the broadcast. The Associated Press reported that West was apparently upset that he was not invited to open the event.
“Maybe my money’s not right. Maybe my skin’s not right,” he said.
A rep for Spears could not be reached at press time.
