Last night, troubled producer/rapper Kanye West gave a last-minute secret concert at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC to promote his album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Kanye boasted about his comeback and his 1st week record sales (expected to be around 500K).

"It was a show performed by a real asshole..." writes the NY Times, "a guy who was convinced that no matter how much you loved him, you could still love him more."

Celebrities in attendance included Sean Combs, Q-Tip, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Swizz Beatz, Pusha T, Teyana Taylor, Ryan Leslie, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, and John Legend.

Kanye ended the concert with a long rambling, confusing, narcissistic speech in which he once again blamed everyone else around him for his troubles, including his favorite targets: former president George Bush and country pop singer Taylor Swift.

Of the latter, he said, "...Taylor never came to my defense in any interview" I guess it didn't occur to Kanye that his victims aren't required to come to his defense?

Yeezy also swung wildly at bloggers: "The sh*t that people write on blogs is a projection of what they feel or what they're scared about in themselves," he said. "And now we are mere surfaces of the energy that they are projecting on us."   :yawn:

The audience quickly grew restless halfway through Kanye's rambling speech. There was a smattering of boos and a few of his fans (who spent $160 for the privilege of being there) yelled out "GAY FISH!" and "YOU'RE A LIAR!"

But West, who is firm in his belief that he is being unjustly persecuted -- not unlike Jesus Christ -- soldiered on, blaming everyone but God for forcing him to man up and face his own demons dead on.

    the tickets were 100 bucks with 6 bucks for ticketmaster if they paid 160 it was a scalper because i tried to go and they had they tickets on ticketmaster but you couldnt buy them lol what a setup. and i think with taylor swift if she truly forgave him like reported then she would come to his defense i would think, sort of the way he doesnt talk about bush now because he been accused of what bush has.

  • buttercup24

    She doesn't have to come to your defense jerkoff. And if you were truly apologetic you wouldn't run around assuming she had to, you would've wiped your hands of it.

    He is a good artist but a pathetic person. Go sit down somewhere!

    @CANDI

    Well, at this point, I've received multiple beautiful pictures from the lovely lurkers of SR. COM. I have truly been impressed and intrigued.

    NOOOOOOOW, it's time to up the ante! I have some friends that have recently signed on their first recording contract! They will have to out-of-pocket their first video, this is where new technology comes in!

    I'm requesting that all the lovely ladies send in (via email: JCSTANSB @GMAIL .COM) a video clip of their best dance moves to classic tracks such as "Tip Drill" or "How Low Can You Go" and of course "Bust It Wide Open," basically any up tempo song.

    The winner will be featured in the video and receive a cash reward into a paypal account that they can set up! EVERYBODY WINS!

    Now, please, hold off until December 1, 2010 for everthing to be in place. Now remember, show your BEST moves because the competition will be FIERCE!

    Nope! The cash reward will vary depending on the initial results bookings/sales/advance the artist receives after the edited video is released. We have committed to at least $500.00!!!

    You may be right, I don't get him anymore. I thought 808's and heartbrakes was a slap in the face to all his fans. It was like I can put out crap and you will buy it because I am Kanye. I didn't buy it. I was his biggest fan when the first album came out, in fact I had to buy another one because I wore it out, but I have not bought one since.

    what is this cd that yall speak of??

  • http://twitter.com/candyrayne215 spongebobfan

    im done with Qunicy jones,: When pressed what he thinks about West, he didn't offer up much. "I don't think about him much. He's a great rapper, but there are a lot of good rappers. I just did The View with Ludacris, who's one of my favorites. He's a beautiful human being and college educated. I joke with him and say, 'How did 'Move Bitch Get Out The Way' come out of you?' But I was raised around the Mafia when I was a kid in Chicago in the 30s. Chicago's rough. I'm from the streets, I know what's up!"

  • Daisy

    @sponge did you see Quincys new statement addressing this issue? He still throws shade at Kanye :lol:

  • http://twitter.com/candyrayne215 spongebobfan

    daisy, i get that its NO comparison, im not saying it should be, but come on, he didnt have to say all that1 its not like kayne himself made the comparison, that really burned me up...

  • peanutbuttercup

    If I woke one morning to the headlines: "Kanye West, Dead at 33", I would not be shocked one bit. This dude over thinks everything. He's so neurotic that he's going to eventually crash and burn, sooner than we all think. Too bad, he could have been great but he wouldn't allow those voices in head to quiet down enough to get a grip. At some point in our lives, we have to really really look at ourselves and ask "who am I". Not who the world thinks I am, not who my family wants me to be . . but TRULY, who am I. He needs to ask himself that, and then nothing but his own peace of mind will matter. Nothing.

  • kwall

    i was waiting on someone to say it..but no one ever did...honestly i think q has beef with a comparison ye did last year to....michael jackson...right before the kang died...

    "As for comparing himself to other celebrities, Kanye added: "As far as rapping goes, how can I say this? Jordan, Michael Jackson - it's what I do.""

    really only reason i can even think q is so peeved about this...
