Kanye West Was Booed Off Of His Soapbox in London
While onstage during the first day of the 2014 Wireless Music Festival in London, Kanye West launched into what can only be described as a rant about racism in the world of fashion, Kim Kardashian, what it means to be a celebrity and why he choses to wear a mask during performances.
Needless to say, his opinions divided the crowd and there's some pretty bizarre video floating around that proves it.
Right in the middle of his set, the self-proclaimed Yeezus began what seemed like your normal, every day concert dialogue. The crowd even cheered him along at first. But after nearly 15 minutes of off-topic nonsense, the fans go from being fired up for the performance to slightly pissed off.
Take a look at the video for yourself; things get weird around 4:10 with the audience realizing what "rubbish" it is around the 13-minute mark.
It's clear almost everyone in the audience just wanted the concert they paid for and not the lecture they ended up with.
Oh dear Kanye West. Literally lecturing us for 15 mins with a tea towel over his face as the crowd boo. Bit odd. #Wireless— MATT STREET (@Matty_D_Wilson) July 4, 2014
Kanye West! Gimp mask on ranting about LV & Gucci whilst people stand in the pissing down rain at Wireless I can't get down with that!— #JAM (@DjStylusUk) July 5, 2014
In the end though, it seems as if Kanye did end up performing the music that's made him famous ultimately making the crowd happy again. Something he'll have to do again tonight, as he's scheduled to perform again in lieu of a sickly Drake.
