Kanye West addressed reports of him being booed by crowds for his extended rants at his two London Wireless Festival shows this weekend (July 4 and 5) by issuing a third rant as he headlined the final night of Wireless Birmingham.

West had used his platform at London's Finsbury Park to rail against brands, the fashion industry, the nature of celebrity and the paparazzi, telling the crowd he was "shy in real life".

Performing last night (July 6) at the Birmingham leg of Wireless, West embarked on a relatively short monologue at around five minutes in length, reports The Birmingham Mail.

"It doesn't matter what I say, from the top of my mind to the bottom of my heart there is nothing they can do to stop me," he said early on into the set.

He reportedly told the Perry Park crowd: "The media wrote that people booed. And you know what. I'm not going to lie, I'm not invincible."

He continued: "It hurt me a little bit because I knew how much of a good time everyone had. I'm sorry that I'm not a complete belligerent asshole that I normally am, but I will be back."

West appeared twice at the London leg of Wireless as he was filling in for Drake, who pulled out last week due to ill health.
