Do you miss the old Kanye, the drunk and bold Kanye, the run-up-to-Taylor-Swift-and-grab-ahold Kanye? Great news: TMZ reports that MTV has given the rapper the television equivalent of a blank check for his segment at Sunday night's Video Music Awards. Anonymous producers tell TMZ Kanye has four minutes to do what he wishes, and they have no idea how he'll choose to spend the 240 seconds of air time. (We know what you're thinking, but no, Swift reportedly won't be in attendance.) When it comes to Kanye, the cable network is following in the tradition of the occult figure Aleister Crowley, who wrote that, in his perfect world, "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law."
