VIDEO: Tyler the Creator Still Hates Bruno Mars' Music

When Tyler realized he was at the bottom of MTV’s VMA tweet tracker, and then that Mars was above him on the meter, the rapper confirmed that he hated the singer’s music. And when the possibility that Mars may win Video of the Year with “Grenade” over his video for “Yonkers,” Tyler said, “I might kill myself.”
