More bad news for KanYe West: Angry fans at Bonnaroo booed the hip-hop artist after he took stage at 4:30 a.m. – almost two hours after he was supposed to perform.
KanYe was orginally slated for an 8:15 performance, but he wanted his cool glow-in-the-dark shades to work correctly, so he requested a later time: 2:45 a.m.
When Pearl Jam finished their set, it took three hours to change sets, and according to E! Online, “the antsy crowd began hurling glow sticks at the stage and screaming anti-West sentiments.” By the time KanYe took the stage, most festivalgoers had left.
Of course, KanYe issued no apologies for his tardiness, and played an abbreviated set, due to the rising sun that he was trying to avoid. According to reports, his performance was less than magnificent.
What a diva. We haven’t heard any comment from his camp yet, but I’m sure he will eventually spew forth some excuse and trash someone in the process.
I still don’t understand why this man is a Grammy winner. The fact that he deems himself this important only adds to the mystery.
