Haha. I just read that. He's a complete whiny prima donna daft-punk-stage- set-ripping-off bitch.

My favorite is the quote from the Village Voice-next time he holds up his finger proclaiming he's number one, someone should tell him what he can do with that finger.

He bitched to Bonnaroo and got his time slot switched and then Pearl Jam played an hour over. eheheheheheheh

i thought his show was great....it was worth the wait....what ive heard from some people that worked at bonnaroo was that he originally wanted to go on that late but he wasnt allowed and when pearl jam went an hour over time he saw his chance to do what he orginally wanted to do.

Before the Kanye show everyone was saying how awesome it would be to have the sunrise during his performance and when it actually happens they all get pissed

His setup was great...it was all based on him crashing his ship on some planet and he talks to his computer the whole time during songs and each song some how had something to do with the him being stuck on that planet....it was amazing how he ordered his songs to make a complete story

a bit more on people bitching.....none of them were bitching when he was performing....everyone around was dancing there ass off and singing to the songs....i find that really funny

"It's not the stage hands' fault; that stage was set up for well over an hour before Kanye decided to grace us with his presence," wrote another attendee on VillageVoice.com.

How would he know that?
A lot that goes into a performance of his scale (15 bigrig trucks' worth of equipment) has to do with stuff that goes on behind the scenes. The onstage props themselves are only a part of the overall stage set up. Granted, Kanye is a douche but it is a possibility that it wasnt just him being a douche that delayed his set from going on.

I have seen photo's of his stage set up...and I can't imagine that taking longer to set up then Daft Punk's pyramid or Roger Waters's stage setup....so it seems like a piss poor excuse...that and at least the fucker could have said sorry...or at least released a statement...

I think the only bad thing really is making people wait for two hours starting at 2.15 am. that's absurd, some people must have been so tired by the time he came on... if it was just advertised at 4.15 in the first place people would have much less room to complain. people like to complain.

I'm in the same boat as you, man. I dunno if I could do the 3-4 hours of sleep tops thing, I might actually have to skip some stuff.
but yeah, the more I think about it, the late shows seem like such an amazing setting. there are some bands I'd love love love to see in that spot.

so then josh, are we setting up the official bonnaroo 2009 get some sleep camping club?

While I think what he did at Bonnaroo sux ass, I still say he puts on a great show!

I think Kanye prolly wanted to time it right so the sun was rising to coincide with the sun rising visuals (on the giant LED screen) during Touch The Sky.

Which kinda would have been sweet (but not if you're scheduled to go on at a certain time!!).

Anyhoo, with all that said, I still think I'm going to see Kanye instead of NIN at Lollapalooza!
I really wanna see his set again.

However, thankfully there are some NIN shows before Lolla, so based on that, I will make a decision...

NOTE: I RLY hate that Kanye plays at the same time NIN does...Why o why couldn't it be Rage?!

I'M FUCKING HURT BY THIS ONE. ALL I CARE ABOUT ARE THE FANS. JUST SAY THIS OUT LOUD IN A ROOM FULL OF PEOPLE, "KANYE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT GIVING A GOOD PERFORMANCE." CAN ANYONE HONESTLY SAY THAT ????????? HAS ANYONE EVEN TAKEN THE TIME TO AT LEAST DO THE MATH??? BONNAROO SHOULD HAVE RELEASED A STATEMENT IN MY DEFENSE BUT SINCE THEY HAVEN'T LET'S BREAK DOWN THE WALLS ON THIS TRUMAN SHOW AND LET YOU KNOW WHAT REALLY OCCURRED!!! FOR OVER A MONTH WE WENT BACK AND FORTH ON WETHER OR NOT WE COULD EVEN FIT MY STAGE AT THE FESTIVAL. ONE DAY THEY WOULD SAY YES... WE'D SEND THEM OUR SPECS THEN THEY THEY'D SAY OK... THEN THEY WOULD SEND SPECS BACK THAT DIDN'T FIT THE STAGE. WE WERE OBVIOUSLY DEALING WITH FUCKING IDIOTS WHO DIDN'T REALLY HAVE THE CAPACITY TO REALLY PUT ON THIS SHOW PROPERLY. THEY TRIED 2 GIVE ME A TIME SLOT WERE IT WAS STILL LIGHT OUTSIDE ... I HAVE A FUCKING LIGHT SHOW DUMB ASS, IT'S NOT CALLED GLOW IN THE DARK FOR NO REASON SQUID BRAINS! MY PEOPLE WORKED OUT A COMPROMISED STAGE PLOT AND A 3AM TIME SLOT AND I AGREED. FAST FOWARD TO THE DAY OF THE SHOW. MY PRODUCTION MANAGER TRIED TO LOAD IN FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE I WENT ON STAGE BUT THE FESTIVAL WOULDN'T ALLOW US TO DO ANYTHING UNTILL PEARL JAM LEFT THE STAGE. PEARL JAM ENDED ONE HOUR
LATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AT THAT POINT WE'RE RACING AGAINST THE SUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AT 4:20AM DON COMES BACK 2 THE BUS AND TELLS ME, " IT WOULD TAKE 45 MORE MINUTES TO PUT ALL YOUR PYRO IN!" I SAY I HAVE TO GET OUT THERE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE . I HIT THE STAGE AND PEOPLE HAD BEEN THROWING SHIT ON THE STAGE AND HAD ACTUALLY HIT THE JANE SCREEN WITH, I GUESS BOTTLES OR SOMETHING AND HAD BROKEN MY FUCKING SCREEN. REMEMBER WHEN YOU WERE A SHORTY AND WATER WOULD HIT THE TV?????? WHEN I GOT 2 "THROUGH THE WIRE" I STEPPED ON THE FRONT PART OF MY STAGE AND THERE WAS SO MUCH LIQUID ON THE STAGE I COULDN'T MOVE WITHOUT SLIPPING. I HAD TO ADJUST MY WHOLE PERFORMANCE STYLE BECAUSE OF IT. A FEW MORE SONGS IN AND THE SONG WAS ON IT'S WAY UP.. I CUT A FEW SONGS FROM THE SET BECAUSE I WANTED PEOPLE 2 EXPERIENCE STRONGER WHILE THERE WAS STILL SOME DARKNESS TO PERFORM IT IN. I'VE STRUGGLED WITH STRONGER FROM IT'S CONCEPTION. REMEMBER LAST SUMMER WHEN I CANCELED SOME TV APPEARANCES. IT WAS BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO PERFORM STRONGER IN THE DAYTIME. ANYONE WHO CAME TO THE GLOW TOUR CAN UNDERSTAND WHY I WANTED PEOPLE TO SEE IT PROPERLY. IT BROKE MY HEART THAT I COULDN'T GIVE THESE FANS STRONGER IN IT'S GREATEST FORM... BY THE TIME I GOT TO STRONGER IT WAS DAYTIME AND IT BROKE MY HEART. I'M SORRY TO EVERYONE THAT I DIDN'T HAVE THE ABILITY 2 GIVE THE PERFORMANCE I WANTED TO. I'M SORRY... SOMETIMES I GO 2, 3 DAYS W/O SLEEP WORKING ON MY PERFORMANCE... I HAVE TO ICE MY KNEES AFTER EVERY SHOW AND THEY HURT WHEN I WALK THROUGH THE AIRPORT... HAVING AN EXPENSIVE STAGE CUTS MY PAYDAY IN HALF... CALL ME WHAT YOU WANT BUT NEVER SAY I DIDN'T GIVE MY ALL!!!

Probably the kind of idiot who signed a deal to perform the Glow in the Dark show, thus ensuring he gets to do his full show as he wants it to be performed. He agreed to that time slot because it would have worked for his show, but, due to the late load in and the intricacy of setting up a stage show like that (you try setting up a traditional 3 piece band and getting them to run on time, let alone something with synchronized lights and video projection. That shit takes TIME. Lots more than people realize) it didn't go over well. If I were him, and a modicum of what he says is true, I'd be pissed as well.

06-25-2008, 09:47 AM
The use of caps is hilarious. However... I must say, if Bonnaroo didn't start setting up Kanyes set until Pearl Jam were done, that is kind of weak. At Sasquatch, the roadies started setting up for The Flaming Lips U.F.O. show after that Hives, which was just after 3. A full 6 hours before the Flaming Lips were set to hit the stage. And after each band from then until the Flips started, their roadies were workin on the set. They should have done this during Bonnaroo.
I can't believe I am standing up for Kanye West. I can't stand the guy... but that sucks.

Bonnaroo fucked up by allowing his stage set-up in the first place.

bmack86
06-25-2008, 09:53 AM
Exactly. If they chose to do that, they should have hired extra stage hands ready to fully get everything set, and they should have had a larger stage with curtain so that they could have had quite a bit of the stage prepped as soon as Pearl Jam started. It takes lots of time to patch through equipment and sync up visuals and sounds if you're changing from one band to the other, especially if the act setting up is populated by perfectionists.

Bannaroo should dictate who plays and when not Kanye West. Things got fucked up once Kanye expressed that he didn't wan't to play at 8pm.

Listen, Kanye has been bitching about technicalities for the last 2 years. It happened at Street Scene and the next day at Lollapalooza in 2006. I was at the Street Scene and this video shows him bitching to the lighting guy at Lolla.

I'm sorry, but this is just too much. I am at a loss of words with this one.

I'm just going to say that I dont think I can ever take this guy seriously now.

I have sympathy for Kanye (for his debacle), as it doesnt seem like it was his fault. I blame the Bonnaroo stage crew and technicians.

But even when it isnt his fault, Kanye has still managed to impress me with his immaturity. Bravo.

Just because he's honored doesn't mean he can't be mad at how poorly things went wrong.



Probably the kind of idiot who signed a deal to perform the Glow in the Dark show, thus ensuring he gets to do his full show as he wants it to be performed. He agreed to that time slot because it would have worked for his show, but, due to the late load in and the intricacy of setting up a stage show like that (you try setting up a traditional 3 piece band and getting them to run on time, let alone something with synchronized lights and video projection. That shit takes TIME. Lots more than people realize) it didn't go over well. If I were him, and a modicum of what he says is true, I'd be pissed as well.

I love the little tiny glimmer that comes (rarely) with the voice of reason on this board.

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, *** whatever you can think of.... BUT NEVER SAY I DIDN'T GIVE MY ALL! NEVER SAY I DIDN'T GIVE MY ALL! THIS SHOWS NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY TO BE GOOD AT SOMETHING THERE WILL BE PEOPLE THERE TO LIE ABOUT YOU AND BRING YOU DOWN! LIKE WAYNE SAYS PLEASE DON'T SHOOT ME DOWN CAUSE I'M FLYING! I'M FUCKING HURT BY THIS ONE. ALL I CARE ABOUT ARE THE FANS. JUST SAY THIS OUT LOUD IN A ROOM FULL OF PEOPLE, "KANYE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT GIVING A GOOD PERFORMANCE." CAN ANYONE HONESTLY SAY THAT ????????? HAS ANYONE EVEN TAKEN THE TIME TO AT LEAST DO THE MATH??? BONNAROO SHOULD HAVE RELEASED A STATEMENT IN MY DEFENSE BUT SINCE THEY HAVEN'T LET'S BREAK DOWN THE WALLS ON THIS TRUMAN SHOW AND LET YOU KNOW WHAT REALLY OCCURRED!!! FOR OVER A MONTH WE WENT BACK AND FORTH ON WETHER OR NOT WE COULD EVEN FIT MY STAGE AT THE FESTIVAL. ONE DAY THEY WOULD SAY YES... WE'D SEND THEM OUR SPECS THEN THEY THEY'D SAY OK... THEN THEY WOULD SEND SPECS BACK THAT DIDN'T FIT THE STAGE. WE WERE OBVIOUSLY DEALING WITH FUCKING IDIOTS WHO DIDN'T REALLY HAVE THE CAPACITY TO REALLY PUT ON THIS SHOW PROPERLY. THEY TRIED 2 GIVE ME A TIME SLOT WERE IT WAS STILL LIGHT OUTSIDE ... I HAVE A FUCKING LIGHT SHOW DUMB ASS, IT'S NOT CALLED GLOW IN THE DARK FOR NO REASON SQUID BRAINS! MY PEOPLE WORKED OUT A COMPROMISED STAGE PLOT AND A 3AM TIME SLOT AND I AGREED. FAST FOWARD TO THE DAY OF THE SHOW. MY PRODUCTION MANAGER TRIED TO LOAD IN FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE I WENT ON STAGE BUT THE FESTIVAL WOULDN'T ALLOW US TO DO ANYTHING UNTILL PEARL JAM LEFT THE STAGE. PEARL JAM ENDED ONE HOUR
LATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AT THAT POINT WE'RE RACING AGAINST THE SUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AT 4:20AM DON COMES BACK 2 THE BUS AND TELLS ME, " IT WOULD TAKE 45 MORE MINUTES TO PUT ALL YOUR PYRO IN!" I SAY I HAVE TO GET OUT THERE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE . I HIT THE STAGE AND PEOPLE HAD BEEN THROWING SHIT ON THE STAGE AND HAD ACTUALLY HIT THE JANE SCREEN WITH, I GUESS BOTTLES OR SOMETHING AND HAD BROKEN MY FUCKING SCREEN. REMEMBER WHEN YOU WERE A SHORTY AND WATER WOULD HIT THE TV?????? WHEN I GOT 2 "THROUGH THE WIRE" I STEPPED ON THE FRONT PART OF MY STAGE AND THERE WAS SO MUCH LIQUID ON THE STAGE I COULDN'T MOVE WITHOUT SLIPPING. I HAD TO ADJUST MY WHOLE PERFORMANCE STYLE BECAUSE OF IT. A FEW MORE SONGS IN AND THE SONG WAS ON IT'S WAY UP.. I CUT A FEW SONGS FROM THE SET BECAUSE I WANTED PEOPLE 2 EXPERIENCE STRONGER WHILE THERE WAS STILL SOME DARKNESS TO PERFORM IT IN. I'VE STRUGGLED WITH STRONGER FROM IT'S CONCEPTION. REMEMBER LAST SUMMER WHEN I CANCELED SOME TV APPEARANCES. IT WAS BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO PERFORM STRONGER IN THE DAYTIME. ANYONE WHO CAME TO THE GLOW TOUR CAN UNDERSTAND WHY I WANTED PEOPLE TO SEE IT PROPERLY. IT BROKE MY HEART THAT I COULDN'T GIVE THESE FANS STRONGER IN IT'S GREATEST FORM... BY THE TIME I GOT TO STRONGER IT WAS DAYTIME AND IT BROKE MY HEART. I'M SORRY TO EVERYONE THAT I DIDN'T HAVE THE ABILITY 2 GIVE THE PERFORMANCE I WANTED TO. I'M SORRY... SOMETIMES I GO 2, 3 DAYS W/O SLEEP WORKING ON MY PERFORMANCE... I HAVE TO ICE MY KNEES AFTER EVERY SHOW AND THEY HURT WHEN I WALK THROUGH THE AIRPORT... HAVING AN EXPENSIVE STAGE CUTS MY PAYDAY IN HALF... CALL ME WHAT YOU WANT BUT NEVER SAY I DIDN'T GIVE MY ALL!!!

i saw Flipping Out too, that guy is great and yeah people get really pissy about the temperature of their coffee. I worked at Starbucks while in school and customers would do really neurotic things, like flip out if there was a tiny bit of foam in their latte if they didn't want it.

Kanye West rails against Bonnaroo criticism

06/25/2008 4:00 PM, AP
Jake Coyle

NEW YORK (AP) — Kanye West defended himself from criticism over his delayed performance at Bonnaroo, saying on his blog that the flak he's taken has left him "the most offended I've ever been."

West's performance at the Tennessee festival was scheduled for 2:45 a.m. in the early morning of June 15. West didn't take the stage until 4:25 a.m., angering much of the crowd who had stayed up late to see the rapper perform.

The delay was caused by problems setting up West's elaborate stage set, which included an interplanetary landscape of a wavy black platform and a video screen above. Pearl Jam, who had performed on the main stage earlier that evening, also went an hour over its scheduled time. While waiting for West's concert to begin, many in the crowd pelted the stage with glow sticks and beer.



At the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, which traditionally has favored jam bands, West's delayed show became a kind of rallying point, leading to "Kanye sucks" chants and criticism from pedal steel guitarist Robert Randolph, who played later the same day.
Writing Tuesday on his blog at http://www.kanyeuniversity.com in almost all caps, West said he was offended that anyone would think he doesn't care about his fans and blamed the delay on festival organizers.

"This Bonnaroo thing is the worst insult I've ever had in my life," West wrote. "This is the most offended I've ever been ... this is the maddest I ever will be."

West was critical of the festival for not releasing a statement in his defense. The morning after the show, The Associated Press asked festival spokesman Ken Weinstein about the delay. Weinstein said it was simply a matter of unloading the Pearl Jam stage after its set (which went until about 1:15 a.m.) and loading the West stage.

Following his performance, West's publicist didn't reply to a request from The AP for West's take on the criticism.

In his blog posting, West said he and the festival organizers (Bonnaroo is put on by Superfly Productions and AC Entertainment) went back and forth for a month on how his stage could fit at the festival. He said it was clear he was "dealing with ... idiots who didn't really have the capacity to really put on this show properly."

Weinstein on Wednesday relayed a statement on behalf of the festival that did not specifically address West's complaints but read: "Our world-class event production team strives to accommodate the needs of every performer."

West also blamed thrown bottles for malfunctions with his "Jane screen." (In the concept concert, Jane is the HAL-like disembodied female robotic voice of his spaceship.) But the stage crew appeared to be having difficulty with the screen well before anything was thrown from the crowd.

West's set was originally scheduled for 8:15 p.m. the night of June 14, but the rapper requested it be moved later in the evening so it was sufficiently dark for his "glow-in-the-dark" performance. But because of the late start, midway through his performance the morning light began to show — revealing a substantially thinned-out audience.

"It broke my heart that I couldn't give these fans `Stronger' in its greatest form," said West, referring to his hit song. "I'm sorry to everyone that I didn't have the ability 2 give the performance I wanted to. I'm sorry."

West concluded by saying his elaborate stage cuts his payday in half and leaves him icing his knees.

"Call me what you want," he said, "but never say I didn't give my all!"

My opinion of the KAnye set is that it would have been cool as hell if he was on time instead of going to Atlanta, but he screwed up by showing up late. I stuck around to watch it and was up until sunrise missing Chali 2na w Galactic, Ghostland, Talib, and a couple of sigur Ros's songs. Big letdown.

so apparently as a response to his angry blogpost, Kanye was told by friends to go through some anger management classes. These rumors made their way to the media and were spread fast apparently.

However folks, have no fear, for Kanye has again "set the record straight" on these rumors.

Taken from his blog:


Do yall remember when people said my fiance was pregnant???? What happened to that rumor????? I guess after we broke up it was just forgot about???? I’m just using that as an example of how people make up stuff and everybody runs with it. I had my own family asking me about that. Now the media is saying I’m going to anger management something or ‘nother. I have never had any conversations about anger management. If anything, I need anger enhancement!! lol! I get off the plane in Hawaii today and the world is saying my management team said blah blah blah… SIIIIIIGGGHHHH! I told the media you can’t make up lies about me because I have a media outlet myself. Oh and sidebar I don’t know if everyone has realized this yet but I don’t do interviews if there’s anything I wanna say I’ll say right here on my own blog.

Check this out…I took a quote from my rant and used it as my headline.. just like a real media outlet would… hahaha

this is good.

Wow... that is fucking incredible. I do realize it is the internetz and all, and nobody expects exactly gramatically correct, proof read typing... but seriously? He should know thousands, millions perhaps, of people will be reading that. The least he could do is compose it somewhat coherently and use punctuation correctly at least some of the time.

Like this for example.

I guess after we broke up it was just forgot about????

Are the "????" really neccessary there? In the sentance previous, ok I guess so. But in this sentance? No, definately not.

Great attitude! You'll fuckin love it! Its all about the music and you'll love it! Sleep doesn't matter when so much sound is involved.

Night shows aretruly the best shows ever, always classic, even from the crowd alone.


(no coachella disrespect but its a great vibe)

this is so true...i went to coachella in 07, and loved it...however, the night shows are one of the things that make roo the best festival in the land...ghostland observatory, sigur ros, chali 2na of jurassic with galactic for a band, phil lesh and friends, and that was just saturday night/sunday morning...for me, the vibe was so much better at the from the get go (people helping others set up tents and i even saw several people help others with free food)...no disrespect to coachella, because i loved my experience, but with something going on 24 hours from open to close, the choice is clear for me...plus tickets are cheaper, and camping is included, not an extra charge

Yeah, kind of like the overall tone you pick up when you listen to his lyrics too. Amy Winehouse has more talent in her left pinkie than Kanye does in his whole body, and Amy Winehouse is a talentless bitch. Hey, at least she respects her fans enough to fucking come out on stage and perform even if she's wasted. Waiting a long time for Kanye to come out is one thing, making people miss epic late night shows from MMJ and Sigur Ros is a whole different degree of evilness.
