Kanye West has responded with a caps-filled blog to negative reports following his recent appearance at Bonnaroo.
Fans at the Tennessee festival were so angered by West’s delayed set that they pelted the stage with bottles and trash, and chanted ‘Kanye sucks!’ as they awaited his performance.
West explained the reasons for the delay by posting a raging blog on his website in which he called it the reports the “worst insult I’ve ever had in my life”.
The rapper writes:
” I am sick of negative people who just sit around trying 2 plot my downfall… Why???? I understand if people don’t like me because I like me or if people think tight clothes look gay or people say I run my mouth to much, But this Bonnaroo thing is the worst insult I’ve ever had in my life. This is the most offended I’ve ever been… this is the maddest I ever will be. I’m typing so fucking hard I might break my fucking Mac book Air!!!!!!!! Call me any name you want…. arrogant, conceited, narcissistic, racist, metro, fag whatever you can think of…. BUT NEVER SAY I DIDN’T GIVE MY ALL! NEVER SAY I DIDN’T GIVE MY ALL!…
He then goes on to explain the difficulties he had with the festival in planning the time slot and technical logistics of staging his ‘Glow In The Dark’ show at the event.
