Kanye West on Wheelchair-Gate: “Pick another target”

Kanye West really doesn’t get why you’re mad that he told someone in a wheelchair to stand up during his concert. Just because he wouldn’t take the fan’s word for it and felt the need to send his security into the audience to make sure the guy was legit handicapped and not just making it up for fun (???) and complained about the time it was taking to verify this so that he could move on with his setlist doesn’t mean he’s a terrible person, right? I mean… right? At the end of the day, it’s Kanye that’s the real victim… says Kanye.

From Billboard:

“Pick a new target, ’cause I’m not one of these dumb-ass artists that you’re used to,” West said at his Brisbane concert, the final date on his Yeezus tour of Australia.

He said the media will cover stories such as “Kanye West buying ice cream” and a jet-skiing squirrel, while ignoring issues such as kids being killed in Chicago or unnamed people being shot by police.

He said the media was trying to “demonize” him, and went on to call out Matt Lauer, Michael Strahan, Whoopi Goldberg and Robin Roberts, saying efforts to discredit him won’t work, noting he is “a married Christian man with a family” who makes sure “everybody has as good of a time as possible” at his concerts.

If you’d like to torture yourself by listening to/watching his entire rant – and believe me, he goes on and on about all kinds of bullshit, like how he’s a good “married, Christian man” and all this nonsense – here ya go:

Will this guy ever get a clue? Probably not. I just hope his career starts tanking sometime soon so that he can fade into oblivion and eventually file for bankruptcy like the rest of ‘em.

I will say that he makes a good point in that we should all be paying more attention to the awful injustices that happen in the world – people being shot and killed by cops (and each other) is awful and a big deal and is something worth working on. But that doesn’t absolve Kanye for acting like a total asshole. I mean, come on!

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.

Kanye West hospitalized for a migraine

Kanye West

Kanye West is currently touring in Australia, and shit got serious yesterday when he was rushed to hospital. It wasn’t what you think – this wasn’t the result of some hip hop beef or another fight with a photographer. It was… for a headache.

From TMZ:

Yeezus and his entourage rushed to the emergency room Wednesday in Melbourne after playing basketball.

Sources tell us Kanye had a pretty intense migraine.  He was released later that afternoon after doctors checked him out and determined it wasn’t serious.

The Australian media is claiming Kanye suffered seizure like symptoms … but we’re told it’s not true.

He wasn’t the worse for wear … Kanye made it to his show at the Rod Laver Arena that evening … and ranted like his normal self.

Aw, poor wittle baby. I think it’s hilarious that it’s always the big hard men who have so much shit to talk on a daily basis that are the biggest babies about stuff like this. I’m not saying migraines can’t be scary, especially if you’re not used to having them, or that you shouldn’t seek medical attention if you think something’s wrong… but really, man?

Clearly it wasn’t that bad since he was back to himself hours later. Also, no wonder he had a headache – he’s an absolute misery and gives me one on a daily basis. It’s only natural that he’d experience it for himself after a while.
