Many assumed that the eccentric rapper may have purposely over-utlized a few curse words in an effort to disrespect live television… resulting in his entire performance being bleeped out.
Apparently… that wasn’t the case, and in a statement issued about the incident, Kanye expenses disappointment about his performance being ‘grossly over-censured’ and says he faced ‘unwarranted censorship’ for words like ‘black leather jeans’.

Kanye West hit the stage for the crowd raising closing act of the 2015 Billboard Music Awards last night (May 17, 2015) but the performance didn’t seem to go quite as planned.
Many predicted West’s performance would be the ‘most talked about’ set of the evening as he was scheduled to perform at least two of his hit songs.
Kanye, who was introduced by his two sister’s in-law, Kyle & Kendall Jenner, performed his latest single “All Day” and “Black Skinhead,” off Yeezus, complete with sparks, flames, dancing, and everything you’d expect from the superstar…. yet there were several issues.
First, smoke from the onstage flames prevented the television viewing audience from even SEEING Ye, (who slayed onstage along with Allan Kingdom and Theophilus London, and then performed his Yeezus cut solo).
Second, and most importantly, the television audience couldn’t HEAR most of the performance since ABC ended up bleeping out about 75% of it.

Kanye West’s fame may be worldwide, but he’s apparently lacking in fans in the United Kingdom.
It was just a few days ago that West was blasted about his ‘disrespectful attitude’ and ‘materialism’ by a group proclaiming to be the infamous Anonymous hacktivist organization (click HERE if you missed that), well now he’s being blasted for those same personality traits yet again!
West is scheduled to headline during England’s prestigious Glastonbury Festival this Summer, and the announcement has prompted nearly 60,000 presumed rock-enthusiasts to sign a petition demanding that organizers cancel ‘Ye’s performance.
“Kanye West is an insult to music fans all over the world,” wrote petition-starter Neil Lonsdale, apparently speaking for music fans all over the world (or, at the very least, the U.K.). “This egotistical, maniacal, disgrace was a clear oversight,” he continued. “There is still time to correct this.”

Rapper Kanye West
could be the latest target of the notorious hacker group Anonymous according to a very well constructed, creepy video message about the direction that his life has taken.
In the 7+ minute video, a mysterious man claiming to be from Anonymous & wearing a Guy Fawkes mask (the symbol of the group) attacks West for his lack of humility and also addresses how his fame and notoriety has been under utilized.
The mystery man notes that Kanye focuses on fashion while there or other more pressing issues in the world and that he has never used his influence or platform to better humanity. They also go in on West’s wife, Kim Kardashian‘s over use of sexuality and bashes the couple for forcing fans to focus on sex and material growth instead of using their influence to change the world.

Kanye West rocked light blue contacts as he appeared as himself along with Mike Myers and Dana Carvey during their Wayne’s World skit on Saturday Night Live’s 40th Anniversary Special last night (February 15, 2015).
But in addition to LOOKING unusual, West also delivered an unusual performance.
The eclectic artist performed fan favorite ‘Jesus Walks’ while lying ‘dead to the stage’ *funky dineva voice* and had many questioning his sanity.
Yeezy also performed “Only One,” and “Wolves”. Check out video of Kanye’s performance below… Continue Reading…
When it comes to the Grammy awards, there’s always something to discuss!
This year it’s all about Kanye West, who revisited one of his most infamous stunts during Sunday night’s Grammy awards, as he unexpectedly took to the Staples Center stage during Beck’s album of the year award acceptance speech.
The win was the unquestionably the shock of the evening, as Beck’s “Morning Phase” album beat out both Sam Smith, and Beyoncé for the coveted award!
Beck seemed as surprised as the rest of the audience when he won the award and appeared to be looking around for help. That’s when Yeezy seized the moment, jumping up on stage as if he was about to take the mic… (again)
[Never forget Kanye’s epic ‘Taylor Swift’ Moment during th 2009 MTV VMAs!]
Instead, West flaked out and quickly returned to his seat, but not before getting a few laughs from friends nearby (Beyoncé, Jay-Z, wife Kim Kardashian & John Legend).
But wait… West wasn’t joking at all. In fact, after the show he clarified his actions by ranting that Beyoncé should have won for her self-titled album and that ‘out of respect’ Beck should have given her the Grammy!
