COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Nov. 3 (UPI) -- Kanye West didn't taking losing well at the MTV Europe Music awards in Denmark, crashing the stage because he didn't win the Best Video award.

As Justice and Simian accepted the top award Thursday for "We Are Your Friends," West took center stage, saying his video "Touch the Sky" cost $1 million and pointed out that "Pamela Anderson was in it, I was jumping across canyons."

MTV News said West said that because he didn't win, the awards "lose credibility." Still angry during a news conference, West claimed his video was the best.

Calling Justice and Simian's win "spread the love bulls..t," West, who did win for Best Hip-Hop, wasn't all sour grapes about the categoies he didn't win. He lost out to show host Justin Timberlake for Best Male performer but he said he was happy Timberlake won.

This isn't the first time West has been a sore loser. In 2004 when he lost out to Gretchen Wilson for Best New Artist at the American Music Awards he said he was "definitely robbed."
