I’m not exactly sure when Kanye West‘s break from reality took place, but he is so far off the deep end now that I’m not sure if there’s any way to bring him back. Today’s case in point: during a sit-down interview with BBC Radio 1′s Zane Lowe, Kanye proclaimed that he’s the “number one rockstar on the planet” – and he meant it. He was literally 100% serious. He also insisted that Yeezus, his most recent album, “could be considered perfect”. I mean, look bro, it’s an alright album – good, even… but perfect? SMH, sit down.

We posted yesterday about Kanye West‘s performance on Later… with Jools Holland, but apparently our praise was premature, as he was a bit of a hellraiser behind the scenes, which didn’t go over too well with the show’s crew. I mean, if I was a famous rapper, I would definitely want the carpets in my dressing room ironed, for sure.
The rapper flew to the UK earlier this week to perform his new track ‘Bound 2′ on the BBC Two show, but wasn’t impressed with the carpet being “too bumpy” in his dressing room.
Apparently, West required over half the 15 dressing rooms available at the studios, despite other acts such as Kings of Leon, Sting and Lorde performing on the same show.
LOL, no matter how much of an entourage you have, what the hell do you need 15 dressing rooms for? How long could he possibly have been in the studio to need even a fraction of those? People are so fucking weird and ridiculous.
I can totally see the whole bumpy carpet thing, though. No one likes a bumpy carpet. >__>

If you’re not from the UK, you may not have heard of Jools Holland or his amazing music show called, aptly enough, Later… with Jools Holland. Basically, all the best musicians flock to him (sometimes before they’re super famous) to perform and it’s always great. Obviously there’s more to it than that, but I’m trying to skip to the good stuff here. Kanye West turned up on the show this week to perform ‘Bound 2′ live for the first time. It’s not necessarily his most commercial song, but it has had a fair bit of play on Radio 1 and is quite good – the whole album is, admittedly – so… that’s that.
Charlie Wilson was on hand to do some fine singing, as well, and I think it actually went… pretty well. I don’t find Kanye palatable as a performer to watch on stage, but you can’t deny his music talent. He’ll be back on the longer version of the show on Friday night, though it was pre-recorded.
What do you think?

Kanye West may have lost out on a few million by giving Kris Jenner first access to the first pics of North West, but he made up for it by performing at a wedding in Kazakhstan, where he apparently made $3 million at the president’s grandson’s ceremony on August 31. He had to play some of his… less abrasive hits for the occasion, but hey, he cashed in.
Our Central Asian sources tell us … Kanye was invited by President Nursultan Nazarbayev to perform at his grandson’s wedding Saturday night in Almaty at the Hotel Royal Tulip. Very nice.
We’re told Kanye was paid a hefty sum — in the neighborhood of $3 mil — to perform his big hits, including “Can’t Tell Me Nothing”. One of the wedding guests posted this video of KW on stage.
Well, that’s nice, I guess – but what’s with political leaders in that part of the world wanting to pay celebrities to perform at their private parties? I suppose it’s a good deal for the stars because they are basically getting paid over a million bucks an hour, but it all just seems a bit strange.

Kris Jenner‘s talk show was sinking faster than the Titanic, so she had to pull out all the steps to try and save it. Enter Kanye West, who apparently turned down $4 million for the first pictures of his daughter with Kim Kardashian, North West, to debut them… on Kris. I can only imagine how much convincing that took, but whatever the case, she owes him BIG TIME, since that episode pretty much single-handedly saved her show from cancellation.
Kris Jenner and Twentieth Television scored a big season finale ratings bump Friday when Kanye West made an appearance on Kris and debuted a photo of North West, his baby with Jenner’s daughter Kim Kardashian. The highly anticipated West interview episode notched a series-high 1.7 household rating and did particularly in LA and Dallas markets where it was #1 in its time period. But for the syndicated talk show’s entire six-week run on selected Fox stations, Kris didn’t make a splash and came out just about even (0.8 in HH metered markets) with last year’s time period and with its lead-in. On YouTube the show’s channel hit a high of 4.3M views in its final week, comprising over half of its 8.1M views to date.
Well, that’s nice. Too bad it was a one-time thing, because God knows what she’s going to try and pull out of the hat now to keep this shit show on air. Oh, and in case you forgot, here’s how cute North West is:

There she is in all her glory – Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s daughter North. Isn’t she… really fucking adorable? Kanye revealed the pic on Kris Jenner‘s talkshow this morning and obviously the Internet has gone batshit insane over it. We couldn’t miss the opportunity to put this up, either. She’s cute! She looks like both of them, actually (but mostly Kim, I think). Aww, squishy baby.
