Kanye West Comes to His Senses, Sort Of – ‘It’s A New World, Hillary Clinton’
Following last week’s surprise statement that “If I were to have voted I would have voted on Trump” by Kanye West, it appears the celebrities are now turning on one another as the cognitive dissonance bomb of a Trump win ripples through their minds. Billboard reports that Kanye went on another epic (albeit incomprehensible) rant during his Saint Pablo tour stop at Sacramento, that “sometime we be playing the politics too much,” before ending the show after just 3 songs.
Just like last week, Kanye offered praise to President-elect Donald Trump during a nearly 20-minute speech he made addressing real-word and awards-show politics. During his speech, West directly addressed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Beyonce.
“It’s a new world, Hillary Clinton, it’s a new world,” West said during the concert, The New York Times reported. “Feelings matter. Because guess what? Everybody in Middle America felt a way and they showed you how they felt.”
The concert got off to a rough start when the 39-year-old rapper arrived about an hour-and-a-half late to the stage.
Then as Billboard reports, West’s tirade began:
West’s rant began:
“A lot of people here feel like they lost… you know why… because y’all been lied to. Google lied to you. Facebook lied to you. Radio lied to you.”
And continued by slamming some of his closest performing peers: “Beyonce, I was hurt ‘cause I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over ‘Hotline Bling,’” West told the crowd, referencing the 2016 MTV VMAs.
“Now don’t go trying to diss Beyonce. She is great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all people. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are just to win. F–k winning. F–k looking cool. F–k being cool.”
Jay Z was his next target. “Jay Z, call me, bruh. You still ain’t called me. Jay Z, I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head. Please call me. Talk to me like a man,” West said.
