"Whether it was a plan to give Beyonce the award at the end, we still haven't seen a video as good as that video, like, five years later. There still hasn't been a video that good." West added that the music industry is changing thanks to social media, saying: "The kids now have Instagram and can't be controlled by radio and can't be controlled by TV. "I love the Backstreet Boys' songs, so if any of them are listening, no knock to them, but there will never be another Backstreet Boys! Not in this day and age.

"Kanye West will not compromise on bringing the show, as it was originally envisioned and designed, to his fans," the statement emphasizes before noting, "The Vancouver, Denver and Minneapolis dates have been postponed." Hmm... His Vancouver fans can't be feeling too good about that since West's concert there was already postponed once at the very last minute, making this his second false start in the Canadian city. Earlier this week (before his gear got totaled), Kanye cancelled his show in Anaheim, originally scheduled for November 1, and rebooked it for December 13. <br>Source:
