Kanye West and Jay-Z sent fans into a tizzy last summer when they took the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards to perform their Watch the Throne hit "Otis," and while they made it look so easy, it does take some mental prep-work to get into performance mode. What runs through Kanye West's mind when he steps out in front of the crowd?
"When I go out on stage, I think about great performers throughout time, I think about the fans, I think about the music," Kanye tells MTV News. "I think about how hard it was to get here and how lucky I am to live the dream. This is the moment."
No word on whether or not Yeezy will return to the VMAs this year, but he and his girlfriend Kim Kardashian aren't too interested in chumming it up with host Kevin Hart. In a recent promo clip, the comedian tried to get tight with the famous couple, but they weren't exactly having it.
