The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers has slammed Kanye West, declaring the rapper's inflated ego "makes me ill".

The Las Vegas rocker, 24, was a huge fan of the GOLD DIGGER hitmaker, until he discovered West's attitude.

Flowers says, "He makes me ill.

"I wanted to love him so much when he first came out. He has this sweet voice, and there's a cuteness to it.

"And then you see him in interviews and he's like a lion. It just ruined the whole package for me."
