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 guestâ€™s video singing â€œHappy Birthdayâ€ 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 Jennerâ€™s Great Gatsby-themed party over the weekend, crooning a tune he made famous with The Gap Band, â€œOutstandingâ€ as his finale. But he then broke into Westâ€™s 2010 hit â€œSee Me Now,â€ on which Wilson performed with Beyonce, and he passed the mike to West to take over. But West blanked.
â€œKanye said, â€˜I donâ€™t remember the words!’â€ said a spy. â€œSo he started singing 50 Centâ€™s â€˜In Da Clubâ€™ instead. The whole crowd was chanting [the songâ€™s lyrics], â€˜Go Shorty! Itâ€™s your birthday!’â€
Thatâ€™s when quick-thinking West changed his tune and led the crowd in a rendition of Stevie Wonderâ€™s â€œHappy Birthdayâ€ 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.
