Pitbull Talks MTV VMAs!

We Caught Up With The Rapper In Sydney Ahead Of MTV’s Night Of Nights…

He wowed the crowd when he took to the VMA stage last year alongside Ne-Yo to perform their smash hit ‘Give Me Everything,’ and now, rap superstar Pitbull has revealed his favourite memories from that night – as well as his thoughts on this year’s nominees!

The Miami-born muso, who’s in the country this week as part of his ‘Planet Pit’ world tour, told MTV Australia that meeting two of hip hop’s biggest names was the highlight of the night for him!

“One of my best memories was how I was rehearsing, and I walked back, and Kanye said that, you know, he respects our movement,” Pitbull told us.

“More than anything, I got a chance to shake Jay-Z’s hand, which is someone that I idolise - not only as an artist but as a businessman.”

“It was a great day. A magical moment for me.”

So who does he think will take home the Moonmen at this year’s ceremony?

“I don’t know. I just think to be part of the VMAs you’re already a big winner.”

But while he may have stayed mum on who’ll walk away a winner on the night, the ‘I Know You Want Me’ singer had nothing praise for Aussie sensation Gotye and his track ‘Somebody That I Used To Know!’

“[He’s] a great candidate to win something, absolutely, cause it’s a great, great, great record!”
