Kanye West’s Water-Bottle Tweet Wins O Music Award

O Music Awards stream live tonight at 11 p.m. ET on OMusicAwards.com and MTV.com.

It’s hard to believe Kanye West has been tweeting for less than a year. The pioneering rapper is just, well, so damn good at it. Suffice it to say, our world has improved immeasurably since Yeezy signed on to the micro-blogging site and began dropping his patented brand of 140-character knowledge.

That’s why it’s no surprise ’Ye had an entire category devoted to his tiny drops of knowledge at the first-ever O Music Awards. It was a tough competition, to be sure, and the finalists for the Golden Kanye award were all humorous, witty and classically ’Ye, but only one could win, and the champ is a burst that sums up the enigmatic rapper perfectly.

“I hate when I’m on a flight and I wake up with a water bottle next to me like oh great now I gotta be responsible for this water bottle,” Kanye wrote back in October. We couldn’t agree more. What an awesome and weird responsibility to be given stewardship of in-flight liquid refreshment.

But it was that pearl of wisdom that beat out other contenders, including: “dating models I had to learn to like small dogs and cigarettes,” “Is the Versace sofa to hood? Might need to cover it in plastic!!!,” “I always misspell genius SMH! The Irony!,” “I have decided to become the best rapper of all time! I put it on my things to do in this lifetime list!” and “I specifically ordered Persian rugs with cherub imagery!!! What do I have to do to get a simple Persian rug with cherub imagery uuuuugh.”

That’s just the latest in a slew of early O Music Awards that have already been handed out. Stay tuned all this week for more award announcements.

The inaugural O Music Awards will stream live from Las Vegas tonight at 11 p.m. ET/ 8 p.m. PT on OMusicAwards.com. Tune in to see who will reign supreme in categories like Most Viral Dance, Funniest Music Short and NSFW Music Video!

Servin' it hot and fresh since '99.
