Kanye’s lacklustre, unrehearsed performance last weekend may have been caused by some backstage drama, as a leaked audio reveals.
In the audio West threatens to walk off the live broadcast because the floor wasn’t shiny enough.
“Look at the shit, they took my fucking stage off SNL without asking me,” West says.
The SNL stage crew it was revealed, tore up his designed stage because it was reflecting the stage lights and causing problems for the cameras.
But he doesn’t stop there as Taylor Swift is accused of being a “fake ass,” and proclaims himself to be “50 perfect more influential” than Stanley Kubrick, Paul the Apostle, and both Pablo Picasso and Pablo Escobar. “By 50 percent dead or alive,” he continues, “by 50 percent for the next 1,000 years. Stanley Kubrick, ‘Ye.”
SNL boss Lorne Micheals had to reason with Kanye to stop him leaving.
