Kanye West just can't seem to stop being in headlines these days. Several audio clips of the musician were released of West melting down backstage while at Saturday Night Live.
The rant included a jab at fellow artist Taylor Swift, calling Swift "fake ass". West had released a track in which he took credit for Swift's popularity, a claim she responded to in her Grammy speech saying, "As the first woman to win album of the year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to all the young women out there: there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you’re going, you’ll look around and you’ll know it was you and the people who love you who put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world."
West also ranted that he was fifty percent more influential than Stanley Kubrick, Pablo Picasso, Paul the Apostle and Pablo Escobar.
According to reports, the meltdown was a result of some of his stage was removed from SNL and was witnessed only by his personal team (which makes us wonder who leaked the audio). West later spoke privately with producers who decided to restore the stage to its former glory.
It doesn't end there though, the audio clips came just after West spoke with paparazzi regarding Swift and his 53 million dollar "debt."
As it turns out, Yeezy isn't actually broke. His "53 million dollar debt" is actually the money he invested in his own career. Money he's probably made back ten times over. I'm sure he seems like a sure investment for Mark Zuckerberg.
