Tyler, the Creator Doesn’t Want to Lose VMA to Bruno Mars

Katy Perry, Adele, and Kanye West may have celebrated their MTV Video Music Awards nominations, but no one was more excited than Tyler, the Creator. The Odd Future frontman was over the moon after receiving his first two VMA nods.

“I AM NOMINATED FOR VIDEO OF THE FUCKING YEAR NIGGUH WHAT THE FUCK IS GOOD NIGGAU!!!!!!!!!!!” tweeted Tyler upon hearing that he was up for the coveted Video of the Year. He will compete in that category against Adele (“Rolling in the Deep”), Katy Perry (“Firework”), Bruno Mars (“Grenade”), and the Beastie Boys (“Make Some Noise”).

In addition to Video of the Year, the controversial rapper will vie for Best New Artist with Kreayshawn (“Gucci Gucci”), Big Sean (“My Last”), Wiz Khalifa (“Black and Yellow”), and Foster the People (“Pumped Up Kicks”).

“I GOT TWO!!!!! I HASNT EVEN BEEN A YEAR!!!? MY GOAL LIST IS FUCKING ALMSOT GONE,” exclaimed Tyler.

He made no apologies for flooding his followers’ timelines with his explicit tweets. “Un-Follow Me Now, This Is Gonna Be the Only Thing I Tweet About For The Next Week. Ive Wanted This For Years Fuck. What The Fuck.”

While he was in a celebratory mood, he did call out fellow nominee Bruno Mars, who he famously dissed on “Yonkers,” the song and video for which he was nominated. “IF I FUCKING LOSE TO FUCKING BRUNO FUCKING MARS IM GOING ON A KILLING SPREE. DEADASS,” he wrote.

Kanye West, who called “Yonkers” the best video of the past year, also received a personal shout out. “@kanyewest Fuck Dude, Thanks Alot. Shit, This Is Fucking Awesome.”
