There were rumors KANYE WEST had a meltdown backstage before “Saturday Night Live” this past weekend. And now . . . there’s audio.
It’s pretty typical Kanye. Apparently he had some shiny flooring for his performance, but the stage lights were reflecting off it and messing up a video wall behind him. So stage hands had to remove it. And Kanye flipped.
In addition to whining like a baby and threatening not to perform, he also calls TAYLOR SWIFT a “fake ass,” then elevates himself above some pretty important people.
He says, quote, “By 50 percent, Stanley Kubrick, Picasso, Apostle Paul, [effing] Picasso and Escobar. By 50 percent more influential than any other human being.
“Don’t [eff] with me. Don’t [eff] with me. Don’t [eff] with me. By 50 percent dead or alive, by 50 percent for the next 1,000 years. Stanley Kubrick, ‘Ye.”
A source says he also called the “SNL” staffers, quote, “White mother[effers],” but his rep denies it. And Lorne Michaels reportedly had to talk Kanye down off his ledge so he would stay and do the show. (Listen to the UNCENSORED audio here.)
In related news, Kanye took some crap on Twitter for trying to type “throne”, as in a king’s chair, but he spelled it “T-H-R-O-W-N.” And some people say that by not selling his new album, he’s already cost himself $10 million due to illegal downloading.
A 26-year-old guy in Canada wanted to get attention for his cleaning business Sunday so he tied 110 helium balloons to a lawn chair and floated up into the sky. He actually landed safely . . . but the cops were there to arrest him for mischief.
There was a movie in 2003 called “Danny Deckchair” where a guy ties a bunch of helium balloons to a lawn chair and floats through the sky.
And yes, that also happened with the old man’s house in “Up”, but the obscure “Danny Deckchair” reference is far more relevant to this story. Don’t be so mainstream.
26-year-old Daniel Boria of Calgary, Alberta, Canada wanted to get some viral attention for his cleaning company on Sunday, so he decided to risk his life. He tied 110 helium balloons to a lawn chair and let them take him up into the sky.
He floated through the air . . . he’s not sure exactly how high he got, but it was high enough to get a LOT of attention. Unfortunately for him, some of that attention came from the cops . . . and they arrested him when he landed.
He was charged with mischief since the chair could’ve hurt someone when it fell . . . and he could be facing more charges for violating Canada’s federal aviation laws.
Daniel says the stunt cost him about $20,000 and he wore a parachute just in case things went wrong. Quote, “You can spend the same marketing dollars on a billboard, or you can fly . . . seems like more fun, right?”
