“God I love Kanye so much. Later with Jools is incredible tonight!”
Those words were lifted from Adele’s Twitter account. She commented on Kanye West’s recent performance on the British show “Later… With Jools Holland.”
If Adele had known Kanye’s pre-performance antics she might have alter her Tweet.
It’s being reported that Kanye West was a bona fide prima donna leading up to his live recital on the popular British program.
West demanded that the set be rebuilt to his specifications, insisted everything in his dressing room be white, and he and his crew used half of the available 15 dressing rooms.
Of course, all that pales in comparison to his demand that the carpet in his dressing room be ironed.
Can you even iron carpet?
The 36-year-old rapper said the carpet was too bumpy. And you thought your job was tough.
Now, many stars make odd requests like the one Kanye reportedly made. Celebrity insiders say they make those crazy requests to see if their list of demands were actually read. I think that’s a load of crap. Celebrities aren’t that smart.
They make crazy requests because they’re spoiled and pampered.
In West’s defense, witnesses said he was fine “once he got to the performance.” One of Jools’ crew members commented that Kanye West was “very quiet and unassuming” leading up to his set.
There is where I will give West a break. The rapper’s product is himself. It’s understandable that he would be protective and vigilant of his image. So I’ll let his tantrums about the set slide (to a point). He gets no pass however for wanting his carpet ironed. That’s just ridiculous.
You can’t deny that West is a musical genius but it’s getting to the point where he’s also “musical sausage.”
Sausage is a delicious meal but you don’t want to know how it’s made. Kanye West’s music is awesome but you don’t want to know how he made it… or anything else the man does (award show outbursts, calling U.S. presidents racists, posing as Jesus on magazine covers).
On Oct. 19, Kanye West tickets will be collected in Seattle, Washington. It’s the opening date of West’s 1st solo tour in half a decade.
The high maintenance rapper is bringing along Kendrick Lamar to warm up audiences.
There are 23 cities on West’s route. That’s a lot of carpet ironing. This could become a cottage industry.
