It seems that Kanye West’s bizarre meltdown has moved off Twitter and into the real world after he was heard ranting and raving backstage on SNL.
West recently made a disastrous appearance on SNL and the rumours are that he almost walked off stage before performing. While it seems that they were able to talk him into performing, West’s nothing if not persistent and the egomaniac’s temper boiled over behind the scenes, Consequences of Sound reports.
Kanye apparently began berating SNL staff members after they tore up his stage, because it was reflecting the stage lights and causing problems for the cameras.
Listen to the audio below:
Look at the shit, they took my fucking stage off SNL without asking me.
He then went on to randomly attack his arch enemy Taylor Swift calling her a ‘fake ass’. Then, in Kanye’s usual modest style, he proclaimed himself to be ’50 per cent more influential’ than Stanley Kubrick, Paul the Apostle, and both Pablo Picasso and Pablo Escobar.
He finishes off his random ramble by claiming he’s ‘by 50 per cent for the next 1,000 years. Stanley Kubrick, ‘Ye,’ whatever that means.
However a representative for Kanye told Rolling Stone that the recording has been edited and taken out of context. They claim the audio was secretly recorded while he was venting his frustration in a private moment with his team.
We can’t say we’re surprised that he think’s he’s the greatest human being that ever was or will be but is he really such a moron that he didn’t think his lunatic ravings wouldn’t leak? Unless maybe he did, and this is a publicity stunt…
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
