Kanye Wants Best Album Grammy
But he fears Bush outburst may damage his chances...
Kanye West has been talking up his chances of walking away with the coveted Album of the Year gong at February's Grammy Awards.
The rapper is up for eight awards, but says he won't be best pleased if Late Registration doesn't win Album of the Year. He told MTV News: "If I don't win Album of the Year, I'm gonna really have a problem with that."
Kanye says he's concerned that his "George Bush doesn't care about black people" outburst during a Hurricane Katrina telethon could cause him to miss out. "I don't want to hear all of that politically correct stuff," he added. "You put the camera in front of me, I'm gonna tell you like this: 'I worked hard to get here. I put my love, I put my heart, I put my money (into Late Registration).'"
The 48th Annual Grammy Awards will be held in LA on February 8th.
