Tyler, The Creator Disses YouTube Awards… at the YouTube Awards.

After already addressing his irritation towards the YouTube awards on Twitter, it looks like Odd Future frontman Tyler, The Creator still had more to say, and the rapper took to YouTube's own red carpet awards to address his concerns. Arguing that YouTube's award platform had the potential to act as a mode for talented and underrated artists to shine, the rapper argues that they not only missed the opportunity, but also voices his anger against their move to feature already popular mainstream acts such as Katy Perry and Justin Bieber. Despite his critiques, Tyler did perform "Sasquatch" live with Earl Sweatshirt, with a sneak peek at his live performance chopped in alongside his controversial red carpet interview above.

  • june

    he wasn't talking shet about anybody,he was just stating what he thought was a flaw beyond their first 'award show' and simply thought they should give more shine to people who actually uses youtube to display their artistic content rather then awarding people who already on 'big screens' themselves on other platforms (VMA,GRAMMYS,MTV,ETC), and if they paid him to perform.. most likely he signed a contract.
