Hey, Kanye. Go fund your­self

CityPress - - News -

The Kanye West cir­cus is still the best act in town.

Here are four mo­ments from the past week when Yeezy re­ally let the clowns run free:

A record­ing was re­leased of Kanye rant­ing and rav­ing back­stage at a tap­ing of Satur­day Night Live (SNL): “Look at that s**t, they took my f****ng stage off SNL with­out ask­ing me. Now I’m bummed. That and Tay­lor Swift, fake a**.”

A tweet to Face­book CEO Mark Zucker­berg ask­ing him for $1 bil­lion (R15.4 bil­lion). Zucker­berg has not re­sponded, but in­stead liked a Face­book post from user Steven Grimm that read: “Dear Kanye West: If you’re go­ing to ask the CEO of Face­book for $1 bil­lion, maybe don’t do it on Twit­ter.”

West ad­mit­ted he was up­set about his sis­ter-in­law Kylie Jen­ner’s col­lab­o­ra­tion with Puma. He took to Twit­ter with this: “1 000% there will never be a Kylie Puma any­thing. That’s on my fam­ily! 1 000% Kylie is on Yeezy team!!!” and “Puma we gone give you your measly mil­lion dol­lars back!!! Never try to di­vide the fam­ily!!!” A few days later, Puma con­firmed the deal with Jen­ner.

Days af­ter an­nounc­ing that his new al­bum, The Life of Pablo, would only be sold on the mu­sic stream­ing site Tidal, the mu­sic was down­loaded on to The Pirate Bay site and was in­stantly pi­rated by thou­sands of fans. Now he’s con­sid­er­ing su­ing.
