Kanye West Cancels His Tour After Embarrassing 15-Minute Rant On Stage
Beyonce, Taylor Swift and Hillary Clinton all got a mention.
Everybody’s fave uncensored celeb, Kanye West, has canceled his Saint Pablo tour after delivering an epic – albeit moderately embarrassing – rant about Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, and Hillary Clinton to name just a few, at his concert in Sacramento last Saturday.
Fans had already been upset after Kanye announced last week he didn’t vote, but would have supported Trump, but the singer tipped everyone over the edge when he not only started his Saturday show 90 minutes late, but only performed a handful of songs.
When the audience learned the show was in fact over, everyone began booing, provoking a 15-minute diatribe from the controversial celeb that made his hijacking of Taylor Swift’s 2009 MTV VMA‘s speech look meek.
After announcing to the crowd, “I’m on my Trump shit tonight,” West went on to complain about Queen Bey winning the American Music Award for Best Video.
“I will let you know that Beyoncé is winning the video tonight for Formation over Hotline Bling and Famous. They told me beforehand so I wouldn’t run on stage […] Beyoncé, I was hurt because I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me, and over Hotline Bling. In my opinion — now, don’t go trying to diss Beyoncé. She is great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all equal. – but sometimes, we be playing the politics too much and forget who we are just to win. Fuck winning. Fuck looking cool. Fuck looking cool. Fuck being cool. Fuck all that, bruh!”
The rapper then shared his feelings about the election result and at the same time asked Jay-Z not to kill him. (We’re sure it all made perfect sense in Kanye’s head.)
“It’s a new world, Hillary Clinton, it’s a new world. Feelings matter. Because guess what? Everybody in middle America felt a way and they showed you how they felt. Feelings matter, bro. It’s a new world. It’s a new world, Barack. It’s a new world, Jay-Z. Hey, don’t send killers at my head, bro. This ain’t the Malcolm X movie. We growing from that moment.”
The 39 year-old ended his rant by declaring his tour was the “most relevant shit happening”, before coining the phrase “getting Hillary Clinton’ed”.
“Guess what, the Saint Pablo tour is the most relevant shit happening. The Saint Pablo tour is more relevant than radio and if y’all keep following old models, your ass is going to be Hillary Clinton’ed. You might not like it, but they gotta hear it. I ain’t here to massage you with a fake truth, telling you that Hillary gon’ win over and over and over and then you wake up [and] you still can’t believe it! You know why? Because you was lied to by Google. You was lied to by Mark Zuckerberg.”
The rapper’s diss of Zuckerberg was extra poignant, given her notoriously demanded the Facebook CEO give him a billion dollars earlier this year.
If it weren’t so unfair to the fans who paid hundreds of dollars to see West perform his songs, we would almost say this impromptu speech was more entertaining than one of his normal concerts.
