Cautionary Tale: Don’t Question Kanye West’s Art Or He’ll Kick You Out Of His Concert

"Do I Look Like A Comedian?"

At his San Antonio concert on Sunday, Kanye West stopped the show to reprimand an audience member for shouting at him to take off one of the masks — which admittedly is kinda creepy-looking — he wears onstage. Then he kicked her out of the arena. Because, in his words, he is “Kanye Motherfucking West.” He told her she can see his face on the Internet whenever she wants (true) and marveled at her supposed audacity for “tryin’ to tell me how to give you my art.”

Kanye then spent a good four minutes or so on an impulsive auto-tuned rant that compared him to Miles Davis, Tupac, and the Notorious B.I.G. (they’re all Geminis, after all, so he obviously shares their talents). Security then escorted the fan out, which some audience members protested. “Do I look like a motherfucking comedian?” Kanye asked. No, Kanye, “comedian” is definitely not that word I’d use to describe you. [Gawker]

Carly Simon Sings “You’re So Vain” With Taylor Swift, All The Moms In The Crowd Go Wild

Taylor Swift Carly Simon Youre So Vain
You probably think this song is about you, don't you?

If you asked the average Taylor Swift fan who Carly Simon was, I’m not super confident they would know who you were talking about. The average Taylor Swift fan’s mom, though? She’s been singing along to “No Secrets” since way back in the day. So when Tay-Tay announced that she was bringing out Ms. Simon for a duet on a recent stop on her Red Tour, I’m pretty sure the deafening roar that ensued was the sound of a few thousand really, really excited moms. In related news? Carly looks amaaaaazing. Those boots! [YouTube via Rolling Stone]

Taylor Swift - big tip

Okay we get it! Taylor Swift is like, the nicest person ever. After enjoying an $800 meal with her tour crew (which she obviously paid for) in Philly, the pop songstress left a hefty $500 tip. Taylor, don’t you know that’s like, 60 percent? But I guess if you have boatloads of money it doesn’t really matter. The restaurant manager, Ron Trombino, sounded a little nervy when talking about the whole thing‚ like Swifty’s PR team would take out a hit on him if he didn’t fill the “nice” adjective quota when describing the experience:

“Taylor was very, very nice.”

“It was a very nice experience, very easy.”

Last week, rapper Danny Brown was performing in at a club in Minneapolis when a fan climbed up on stage, pulled down his pants, and began performing oral sex on him. Brown was mid-verse, and the details are murky as to what exactly he did in response, but from most accounts it’s pretty clear that Brown did not invite the woman to suck his dick on stage, and rather, she began performing the act without his consent.

Here’s how one Redditor described the scene:

I was right behind the girl and saw everything it was scaring edit: Okay so this is how it all went down, I was near the front row and all night Danny had been going up to the crowd and having random girls touch his d*ck through his pants. Then this girl in front of me starts flashing him and he goes up to her and grabs her t*ts. Then all of a sudden gets up close pulls his shirt up a little and she start blowing him. Then I’m behind her and I start getting pushed against her by the crowd shifting. It’s horrible and I hope you guys will be donating to my future therapy sessions but also i came back with a story. He rapped the entire time during too. Keep reading »

Earlier this week, at the Mumford & Sons concert, I was sitting next to a bro who kept trying to cheers my empty fist. The first time, during “Little Lion Man,” I gave him a polite smile and smashed my fist against his cup of Coors Light.  The third time he tried, I started to get testy. The bro may have gotten under my skin, but he sparked an important existential realization: not much has changed since my first Lollapalooza in 1992. Well, there were no cellphones back then, and I would never wear a red bra under a pair of conductor overalls with no T-shirt nowadays, but other than that, the people are pretty much the same. After nearly three decades of concert going, I think I’ve finally nailed down all the types. Keep reading »

Beyonce Gets The Posh Treatment

Who does a pop diva turn to for new fashions after being outfitted by Thierry Mugler? If you’re Beyonce, then Victoria Beckham is the answer. Reportedly, Jay-Z’s little lady is so impressed with Posh’s fashion sense and newest collection, that she called her up and asked the singer turned designer to create new costumes for an upcoming concert. Now, during Beyonce’s last tour, there were enough body suits, glitter, and bling to make Liberace happy, but her look might be a bit toned down this time around given Posh’s design sensibility. Since she’s known for her form fitting dresses and long gowns, we’re assuming Beyonce’s going for a bit of a classier, uptown girl vibe. She is a married lady after all. [Mirror] Keep reading »
