Kanye West told a wheelchair-bound man to “stand up” at his concert

Oh, Kanye West. So sweet, so innocent… so very, very stupid and inappropriate. During a concert in Melbourne on Friday night, Kanye really wanted the audience to enjoy themselves, so he insisted they stand up and threatened to not go on with the concert until every single person had done so. He’s not totally unreasonable, of course – you were exempt from this if “you got a handicap pass and get special parking and shit”. What a gentleman!

Apparently Kanye needed one audience member to wave one of his prosthetic limbs in the air to prove his handicap and only then was he happy to move on. However, he apparently later sent his security guard into the audience to check that another audience member was indeed handicapped and not just pretending so that he didn’t have to stand at a fucking Kanye West concert (??????).

From The Daily Mail:

But when another fan remained seated, he stopped the song Good Life, saying, ‘This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song, it’s unbelievable,’ before sending bodyguard Pascal Duvier into the arena to check whether the person was in fact in a wheelchair- which they were.

‘The crowd was also yelling that he was in a wheelchair but he waited for Pascal’s confirmation,’ the witness said, while others said the crowd made ‘wheelchair motions’ to alert the singer to his mistake.

Uh… okay? Apparently after THIS incident, Kanye said it was “fine” for the fan to stay seated. Does this guy have brain damage or something? I feel like that can be the only possible explanation at this point of the shit he comes up with.

Jay-Z might have announced that Beyonce is pregnant again

Jay-Z and Beyoncé have taken their On The Run tour overseas and while performing in France on Friday night, Jay-Z maybe sorta told everyone that Bey is knocked up again for real by changing the lyrics in his song “Beach Is Better” from “I replace it with another one” to “pregnant with another one”. 

People are, of course, losing their shit, and no official announcement has been made (nor have their reps responded to the 8,000,000 requests for comment I’m sure they’ve had since). Of course, these rumours have been swirling around for weeks, maybe months – but this is the first we’ve heard from either of them either way. Does changing a lyric in a song count as an announcement? Was he just trying to rile everyone up? Is Baby #2 just growing to prove the haters wrong and show the world that Jay and Bey’s relationship is just fine? Who knows?

Chris Brown has some advice for Ray Rice

In today’s “Oh, fuck off!” news, Chris Brown was asked by MTV’s Sway if he had any advice for disgraced NFL player Ray Rice. Makes sense, I suppose, since they’re both violent assholes who abuse women. Perfectly understandable! Here’s what Breezy had to say about his experiencing hitting women he says he loves:

“I think it’s all about the choices you make,” said Breezy. “With me, I deal with a lot of anger issues from my past— not knowing how to express myself verbally and at the same time not knowing how to cope with my emotions and deal with them and understand what they are.”

He’s been able to move past his problems by seeking help. “I think help is great,” he added. “I still talk to my therapist twice a week, and it helps me to…if I’m frustrated and I’m dealing with something, to vent and say what I’m going through so I can hear from an actual clinical person, ‘this is how you should react,’ or ‘it’s good to feel this way because feelings, emotions, and energy are supposed to come and go.’ It’s not supposed to stay there, you’re not supposed to keep it inside, because it’ll bottle up and you’ll become a monster.”

But he stopped short of passing judgement. “To Ray, or anybody else—because I’m not better than the next man—I can just say I’ve been down that road. I deal with situations and I’ve made my mistakes too, but it’s all about how you push forward and how you control yourself.”

Gag me. All Chris Brown has learned is that he can do whatever he wants and because he’s famous, the worst he’ll get is a few months in a minimum security cushy prison and then a slap on the wrist as he’s sent on his way. You don’t just beat the shit out of a woman once. That’s not how it happens – it’s never a mistake, or a one-off. Sure, “seek help” is great advice, but not if you don’t actually WANT help and aren’t aware of the gravity of your actions. He’s a piece of shit, and Ray Rice can take a seat right next to him as they rocket themselves right off this planet.

Also, can they take Sway with them? WHO THE HELL THINKS IT’S A GOOD IDEA TO ASK CHRIS BROWN ABOUT THIS?
