Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Kanye Didn’t Throw a Hissyfit

Kanye took to his blog today to deny the New York Post’s claims that he pitched an in-flight fit earlier this week when he and an assistant were denied an upgrade from business to first class.

“I feel bad that people believe this kind of stuff or any random rumor that is taken as fact because ‘it’s on the internet’,” he said. “This rumor is particularly ironic because I was actually happy with a business class seat and was offered a seat in first class. A friend of mine was sitting in coach so asked if they could bump him up to business instead of putting me in first.

“There was absolutely no altercation in any way. There’s been many a time when I’ve given someone in coach my business or first class seat in order to sit next to a friend I bumped into. I really could care less about where I sit on the plane.

“As a good person with a warm heart, it does bother me,” he said. “I’m not bigger than feeling pain, embarrassment, stress and worry. Have you ever been lied on? How does it make you feel? You wanna tell everybody it’s not true, right?”

Not that I’m any great Kanye supporter, but I believe him on this one. This rumor smells like his music to me– total bullshit.
