Kanye West axes gig af­ter just 30 mins

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Kanye West stormed off stage just 30 min­utes into his con­cert in Sacramento, Cal­i­for­nia on Satur­day. The con­tro­ver­sial rap­per per­formed just a few songs be­fore go­ing on an ex­tended rant where he took aim at Bey­once, Jay Z, Hil­lary Clin­ton, Face­book and the ra­dio in­dus­try and leav­ing the stage. He said: “Bey­once I was hurt, I went down for seven years on your be­half. I put my ca­reer, my life, my pub­lic well-stand­ing at risk. This is a mo­ment in the ma­trix. “I heard 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 diss­ing Bey­once, she’s great. Tay­lor Swift is great. We are all great peo­ple. But some­times we be play­ing the politics too much and for­get who we are - just to win. “At the risk of my own suc­cess. I’ve been sent here, at the risk of my own life, at the risk of my own ca­reer, to give ya’ll the truth. “Jay Z, call me. I know you got kil­las. Please don’t send them at my head. Just call me-talk to me like a man.” Just days af­ter en­dors­ing US pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump, he also blasted his de­feated ri­val Clin­ton, say­ing: “This Saint Pablo tour is the most rel­e­vant (thing) hap­pen­ing. If your old ass keeps fol­low­ing old mod­els, you’ll be Hil­lary Clin­ton.” Fans were al­ready up­set when Kanye took to the stage an hour and a half late for the show on his ‘Saint Pablo’ world tour and they were left in­fu­ri­ated by his rant and de­ci­sion to cut the gig short.
