Kanye West Had An Epic Meltdown Backstage at SNL

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Leave 'Hamilton' In NYC

I think Yeezy‘s seriously losing it.

Kanye West threw an epic tantrum behind the scenes of “Saturday Night Live,” so much so that he threatened to walk outta there and not perform. In fact, Lorne Michaels himself plus Kim Kardashian had to reason with the “Runaway” rapper to keep him from bolting. Here’s the story:

“Just moments leading into the live show, and during the live show, Kanye had a meltdown and threatened to walk off,” said a source familiar with the scene.

Multiple sources told us that Kanye suddenly decided he wasn’t happy with the “SNL” set for his musical appearance, which included a video screen and not much else.

“It had something to do with the set,” said a source. “Kim, who was in the audience with Kylie Jenner, had to come down. Lorne had to personally talk to Kanye. There were a few really tense minutes” when it looked like West was walking, leaving the live NBC show in the lurch.

Another source added of West: “He freaked out about how the set was arranged. He was saying he’s ‘the greatest artist.’ He’s having regular meltdowns. Everyone’s walking on eggshells around him. He’s under a lot of stress between the new album and the fashion line.”

 

Michaels, the first source said, was “eerily calm” through the incident. “I guess after 41 years of doing this, he’s used to it.”

Other staffers were prepping for the worst. “They were like, ‘If this happens, and he walks, what are we going to do?’”

After the “artistic differences,” Kanye finally deigned to stay and perform.

In other unhinged behavior, after tweeting he was $53 million in debt this week, Kanye begged, “Mark Zuckerberg invest 1 billion dollars into Kanye West ideas.” He then declared of himself on Monday, in the third person, “He is the greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time,” and tweeted at Google co-founder Larry Page, “I’m down for your help too.”

Close call, SNL. I hear his performance was pretty tight, but I think all this diva stuff is going to get old, fast. Unless this album is genius. Who knows?

Will you listen to “The Life Of Pablo?”

Kanye West Says He’s $53 Million In Debt?!

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 1.25.32 PM

What, you didn’t sell enough weird beige ripped tees last week, Kanye West?

Yeezy’s had a busy week, what with his album, fashion show and dissing Taylor Swift and not/maybe asking her beforehand. He also, by his own admission owes millions. What, you missed that tweet? No problem, I’ll clue you in. It said: “I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt,” Yeezy tweeted. “Please pray we overcome… This is my true heart…”Last year Kanye admitted he went $16 million in debt while trying to launch his Yeezy clothing collection, but now, that number’s up to 53 (like we said, beige nylons ain’t cheap!).

Well, Kanye, I guess we should all be praying that your new album, “The Life of Pablo,” sells a bunch. And hey, maybe Kim Kardashian can spot you a cool couple mil? She’s kinda the breadwinner of the family, isn’t she…

Have you heard Kanye’s new album? Let us know if it’s worth buying!

Kanye West Wanted Taylor Swift To Release His New Song on Her Twitter

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West at The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards in LA

And now, there’s a straight up WAR!

Kanye West and Taylor Swift are now feuding over one of his new tracks, “Famous,” in which he raps, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, I made that bitch famous.”And the best part? He wanted her to release the song on HER TWITTER FEED!

The cajones on that guy.

This was all after Yeezy said that he called the singer to have her “approve” the lyrics- and she did and thoguht it was funny. Taylor came out swinging Thursday night, disputing the story. Taylor’s rep said:

 “Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single ‘Famous’ on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, ‘I made that bitch famous.'”

But Kanye has just fired back, tweeting,

“I called Taylor and had an hour long convo with her about the line and she thought it was funny and gave her blessings. Bitch is an endearing term in hip hop like the word n****.”

Finally, Kanye says, it was actually Taylor who actually inspired him with the lyric. He says:

“She was having dinner with one of our friends who’s name I will keep out of this and she told him, I can’t be mad at Kanye because he made me famous!”

Okay okay okay okay. Can we hold up. Now I love Yeezy but I don’t trust him as far as I can throw him. BUT- I can see Taylor acknowleding Kanye gave her presence a BUMP.

Who do you think is being more honest in this whole situation?
