Kanye West to Perform at VMA

Remember this angry rant from Kanye West when he didn't win any of the five VMAs for which he was nominated? If you haven't, it's quite something and although it's usually found bleeped I certainly wouldn't consider it safe for work.

After vowing never to return to MTV or the VMAs, Kanye West has announced that he will close the VMA ceremony with a performance. How magnanimous.

Implications - It took just a year for Kanye to get over his anger and decide to go to the VMAs once again. We will just have to wait and see what he has in store this year! Last year he was upset because he had to perform on a small stage.
