Listen: Kanye Has Meltdown Backstage at SNL, Calls-Out Taylor Swift, Almost Walks Off

kanyensl

Kanye West was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this past weekend and while to most watching, his performance went off without a hitch; but that wasn’t the case backstage. PageSix obtained audio of West’s meltdown backstage prior to his performance. The rapper was apparently upset because they had removed special flooring 30 minutes prior to his set without checking with him first.

In the audio clip he can be heard calling Taylor Swift a “fake a**” before going on to proclaim that “by 50 percent” he’s more influential than any other human being including the likes of Stanley Kubrick, Pablo Picasso, St. Paul the Apostle, and even Pablo Escobar.

West was ready to walk out, but Lorne Michaels was able to calm him down. Ye was spotted arriving in LAX yesterday where he was all smiles and appeared unbothered by the leaked audio.

Listen to Ye deliver his rant in the way only he can below.

Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary special brings Yeezy, Sia and Vic Mensa together on stage where they performed “Wolves” for the first time. The outspoken Kanye started his performance on the ground wearing a black hoodie and rapped to “Jesus Walks” while recognizing the tragic killings of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown. He continues by singing “Only One” before bringing out Sia and Vic Mensa. This performance brings back fond memories of the old Kanye where his performances were always mysterious, yet powerful and always delivering a deeper message.

With all of the commotion from the Super Bowl (good game Patriots!!), we need to take some time out and pay homage to Sir D’Angelo for gracing the SNL stage with an amazing performance from his most recent album, Black Messiah.

Kenan Thompson To Leave Saturday Night Live and Move To Los Angeles

Kenan+Thompson+Consumer+Technology+International+l-zRFtpOHLkl

Yup, it’s true! Funny man, Kenan Thompson is leaving Saturday Night Live after this season. Although, there is no explanation as to why he is leaving, according to TMZ, the most tenured African-American cast member in the show’s history had planned to leave just last season, but decided to stay after head honcho Lorne Michaels asked him to stay on  – citing the show’s massive turnover this season.

However, Kenan will be leaving the show on good terms, as he will be packing his things, wife and new baby, and heading to the City of Angels. Sounds like Kenan may have a few things lined, as most of the past cast members of SNL. 

****

UPDATE:

It looks like NBC has released a statement, although there is still no word from Kenan himself. Thompson is scheduled to appear on the ‘Today Show’, Thursday to promote the new season, which kicks off Saturday with Chris Pratt and Ariana Grande. Maybe he will make a statement at that point.

NBC USA Today:

“This report is inaccurate, as this season hasn’t even started yet and cast decisions aren’t made until the end of the season.”

Hmmm…

Thoughts?
