In today’s day and age, you can openly criticize politicians, the establishment, the media and the church — but you do not want to mess with Beyonce, even if you’re Kanye West.
Fans who turned out to see the rapper in concert Saturday night in Sacramento got an earful but, unfortunately, it was more rant than rhythm. West was more than an hour late for his show, sang a couple of songs, then went on a profanity-laced tirade about Beyonce, Jay-Z, Taylor Swift, Drake and Hillary Clinton, before dropping the mic and walking off stage.
Warning: Foul language ahead.
“Beyoncé, 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 screamed on stage. “In my opinion — now, don’t go tryin’ to diss Beyoncé, she is great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people, we are all equal. But sometimes, we be playin’ the politics too much and forgettin’ who we are–just to win. F— winning! F— lookin’ cool!”
West continued: “I’ve been sent here to give y’all my truth — even at the risk of my own life, even at the risk of my own success, my own career. I’ve been sent here to give y’all the truth. Jay Z, call me, bruh! You still ain’t call me! Jay Z, call me! Jay Z, I know you got killers, please don’t send them at my head. Just call me! Talk to me like a man!”
Queen Bey and her man have nothing to worry about because social media went nuts in their defense.
