Normally reserved and egoless (NOT!) hip hop superstar Kanye West is pissed off at the Tennessee Bonnaroo festival and rockers Pearl Jam and is using his blog to vent his anger.
In a venom-spewing posting yesterday, West ranted against the festival he performed at a few weeks ago for allowing Pearl Jam, the act that proceeded him, to play over their allotted set time by an hour, forcing him to go on at nearly 4:30 a.m., a time whose day break light kills the black light effects of his stage show. Plus, West took two hours to set up, which he also blames on the festival organizers and grunge band, prompting the crowd to chant "F--- Kanye!" and “Kanye Sucks!” before he hit the stage (see above video).
"I am sick of negative people who just sit around trying 2 plot my downfall," West wrote. "Why???? I understand if people don't like me because I like me or if people think tight clothes look gay or people say I run my mouth to much. But this Bonnaroo thing is the worst insult I've ever had in my life. This is the most offended I've ever been ... this is the maddest I ever will be."
West said he was typing so "f---ing hard" on his MacBook Air that he was in danger of breaking the computer. He dared detractors to call him any name in the book ("arrogant, conceited, narcissistic, racist, metro," etc.), but warned, "Never say I didn't give my all! This shows no matter how hard you try to be good at something there will be people there to lie about you and bring you down! Like Wayne says, 'Please don't shoot me down 'cause I'm flying!' "
West has tons of other complaints….but do we really have time to list them all here? Just go read it at the following link: www.kanyeuniversecity.com.
