Another day, another Kanye West moment.
Footage has emerged overnight of the man that calls himself “Yeezus” on another onstage rant while performing in Brooklyn, NY.
This time, he was talking about his performance at the same venue three months earlier for the MTV VMA’s. West revealed that prior to his performance at the awards show, his well-known producer Rick Rubin told him to “do your motherf**king song and leave.”
“Bruno Mars won all the motherf**king awards and sh**… I don’t give a f**k about no TV show,” he went on to say. Seeing as though no one is completely surprised at anything Kanye says or does anymore, this doesn’t come as a shock, but he has had many other moments that has put his name on everybody’s lips in 2013.
As the saying goes “any publicity is good publicity” – Kanye West is a living example.
The Newsroom looks at 2013, Yeezus in review….
Yeezus album release
His sixth solo release, Yeezus, took a different route to the masterpiece My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Kanye he looked to “undermine the commercial” with this new record. But that didn’t stop it from debuting at number one – like his five previous solo albums.
Becomes father; names daughter North.
On June 15, Kim Kardashian gave birth to hers and Kanye’s first child and they decided to name her “North” (nicknamed Nori) making her full name North West… seriously?
Proposal to Kim Kardashian
While on the Yeezus Tour, Kanye took time to celebrate his girlfriend’s birthday with friends and family, hiring out the San Francisco Giants baseball stadium. He proposed to his baby mama in front of family and close friends with an orchestra playing one of Kim’s favourite songs Young and Beautiful in the background.
Kanye West vs Paparazzi 2013
Round 1: Kanye was having lunch with Kim in LA; he tried to hide his face from photographers following the pair. However, he walked straight into a street sign. This angered the 36-year-old who yelled at the paps “NO PHOTOS, PLEASE STOP IT.”
Round 2: Leaving LAX after flying in from Paris, the rapper was not in the happiest of moods, flipping out at a paparazzi who was agitating him. He tried to take the camera off the photographer by grabbing him. He was subsequently charged with battery and theft, however the charges were dropped.
Jimmy Kimmel fued
West appeared in an in-depth interview with BBC’s Zane Lowe that ran for an hour. Jimmy Kimmel decided to parody the interview with two toddlers and Kanye was at it again. Kanye went on an epic twitter rant, calling the chat-show host a “manipulative media mutherf***er.” The two made up when West appeared on Kimmel’s show later that month.
Bound 2 video clip
Just to highlight Kanye’s place in the news cycle, this made headlines no more than 72 hours ago. A bad use of green screen technology, Kanye wearing a tie-dye shirt on a motorbike and a cameo from Kim Kardashian’s breasts were enough to make headlines around the world. It was so bad it was good.
There are still 39 days left in the year, which is more than enough time for Kanye to make the news again in 2013 – more than once. – Luke Mahoney
