UPDATE: Multiple sources are reporting that Kanye West has been hospitalized. His wife, Kim Kardashian cancelled what would have been her first appearance since her robbery in Paris, to be by his side.
Last month in October, Kanye abruptly ended his New York City show, leaving the audience puzzled. We later would learn that Kim Kardashian was robbed in her Paris hotel room. Fast forward to earlier this month, Kanye cancelled his final show of his 6 shows at The Forum in Los Angeles. That show was later rescheduled after he performed for an hour and walked off shortly after. However, yesterday 3 hours before his start time, the make up show was cancelled again. While everyone is playing “Keeping Up with Kanye”, we all are wondering, what’s really going on?
A few nights ago, while performing in Sacramento, CA, he walked off the stage after another Kanye rant. We have seen his rants many times before. Attacks on Nike, the Fashion Industry, Apple, Louis Vuitton, Black People, Kid Cudi and more. However, lately Mr. West has been using his hovering stage to take shots at Jay-Z and Beyoncé. He recently expressed his disappointment in Jay-Z not coming over after Kim’s robbery incident. Ye said “Don’t call me, after the robbery, and say, ‘How you feelin’? You wanna know how I’m feelin’? Come by the house.” He also shared that their children have never played together.
Beyoncé was the target of his latest rant, after accusing her of telling MTV she would only perform at their award show if they gave her Video of the Year. He stated,
Beyoncé, I was hurt, because I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over Hotline Bling. In my opinion, ‘Now, don’t go trying to diss Beyoncé. She is great. Taylor Swift is great.’ We are all great people. We are all people. But, sometimes, we be playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are, just to win. F*** winning. F*** looking cool. F*** being cool.
While this can not be confirmed and we will not take Yeezy’s word for it; the better question is why share this with the public? If you wanted to call out a friend, how would you handle it? Kanye seems to be in a really dark place, we hope he gets better soon.
