Somebody should really give Kanye West a hug.
The rapper has always been one for controversy, like calling out George Bush and upstaging Taylor Swift. But for a time, he seemed to chill out with his antics by skipping some award shows and doing his best to keep quiet at the ones he did attend.
However that didn’t last very long. Must be that time of the month again.
West has been doing a series of concerts in Europe and to him, the fan-filled arenas look like the perfect places to vent.
He took his mini tour and turned it into a weekend long roasting session in both London and Paris. On Saturday, February 23 in London, Kanye wasted 20 minutes dissing Justin Timberlake’s new track and expressing his hatred for artist that sell out for money. As he sarcastically put:
Can I sell a drink for you please? So you can help me put on a better show. Please, corporations. Can you please support me? I swear I’m a nice … now. I swear I’ll put the pink polo back on. I swear to you. Please. Just for $3 million. I need it so bad. I need a new pool in my backyard.
Kanye was sure to throw in a rant at each show, finishing up (for now) at his show Monday night in Paris where he talked down sponsorship and encouraged the audience to do whatever they want to, give or take a few expletives.
Why can’t he just put it in a song? I’m sure the audience paid to hear the music not his feelings. If that’s the case shouldn’t he be paying them for these therapy sessions?
With more money than anyone needs, his “perfect bitch” by his side and a baby girl on the way I would think he’d be a little happier…guess not.
