VIDEO: Kanye West Booed During Rant At London’s Wireless Festival
Kanye West loves a good on-stage rant. But some fans who were treated to a doozy at London’s Wireless Festival on Friday were reportedly feeling less than inspired.
According to multiple reports, the rapper’s 15-20 minute speech in the middle of his set led a number of restless concertgoers to leave and many others in the crowd to boo. There are a number of clips of West’s tirade about celebrity and the crushing of his creative spirit (see below). The booing is more apparent in some footage taken further from the stage; either way, it’s clear that West’s soapbox moment was divisive.
Of course, the performer is infamous for breaking into long speeches (he even did it at his wedding to Kim Kardashian), and seems to rant at his concerts more often than not. While most people are probably paying to see him rap, not talk, West’s outspoken personality doesn’t seem to have alienated his core fan base.
In fact, it’s entirely possible there are some people attending in hopes of hearing one of his signature rants. The public may not agree with what West has to say, but there’s no denying that when he talks, people listen. And that’s just how he likes it.
