Soul man Smokey Robinson has sent a stern message to Kanye West - "relax".The Motown great is disappointed West rages about missing out on Grammys and MTV music honours at big awards shows - because the rapper should be grateful he's in showbusiness.
Robinson admits he hasn't always been a winner, but he has learned to accept losing with grace - and he urges West to do the same.
In a pre-Grammy Awards chat with Los Angeles DJ Valentine, the Tears of A Clown singer said, "Showbusiness is not that kind of business. Showbusiness is up and down and in and out and over and under and you have to be prepared for that if you're gonna be a part of it.
"Kanye's a great young artist, so just relax... Even to be nominated is a blessing."
Rapper West has made a name for himself as a sore loser, threatening to boycott awards shows that don't honour him and taking to the stage to protest others' wins over him.
