As you may have heard, Kris Jenner celebrated her 60th birthday with a Great Gatsby themed bash thrown by her children. The crew spent a whopping two million dollars on her birthday party and Kanye West performed – but forgot the words to one of his own songs.
West was shown in a guestÃ¢â¬â¢s video singing Ã¢â¬ÅHappy BirthdayÃ¢â¬Â to Jenner in a tux and grinning ear-to-ear. But before that, spies say, he missed a moment to perform one of his own songs.
Spies told Page Six that singer Charlie Wilson was on stage at JennerÃ¢â¬â¢s Great Gatsby-themed party over the weekend, crooning a tune he made famous with The Gap Band, Ã¢â¬ÅOutstandingÃ¢â¬Â as his finale. But he then broke into WestÃ¢â¬â¢s 2010 hit Ã¢â¬ÅSee Me Now,Ã¢â¬Â on which Wilson performed with Beyonce, and he passed the mike to West to take over. But West blanked.
Ã¢â¬ÅKanye said, Ã¢â¬ËI donÃ¢â¬â¢t remember the words!’Ã¢â¬Â said a spy. Ã¢â¬ÅSo he started singing 50 CentÃ¢â¬â¢s Ã¢â¬ËIn Da ClubÃ¢â¬â¢ instead. The whole crowd was chanting [the songÃ¢â¬â¢s lyrics], Ã¢â¬ËGo Shorty! ItÃ¢â¬â¢s your birthday!’Ã¢â¬Â
ThatÃ¢â¬â¢s when quick-thinking West changed his tune and led the crowd in a rendition of Stevie WonderÃ¢â¬â¢s Ã¢â¬ÅHappy BirthdayÃ¢â¬Â to Jenner.
I’m sure he found a way to make the party fun despite messing up the words to one of his own songs.
