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 guest’s video singing “Happy Birthday” 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 Jenner’s Great Gatsby-themed party over the weekend, crooning a tune he made famous with The Gap Band, “Outstanding” as his finale. But he then broke into West’s 2010 hit “See Me Now,” on which Wilson performed with Beyonce, and he passed the mike to West to take over. But West blanked.
“Kanye said, ‘I don’t remember the words!’” said a spy. “So he started singing 50 Cent’s ‘In Da Club’ instead. The whole crowd was chanting [the song’s lyrics], ‘Go Shorty! It’s your birthday!’”
That’s when quick-thinking West changed his tune and led the crowd in a rendition of Stevie Wonder’s “Happy Birthday” 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.
