So there was an SNL meltdown afterall. We don’t always know if some stories are real, but here we go…a new audio has leaked (via Page Six) where he rants against Taylor Swift, NBC staffers and even says he’s more influential than a ton of people.
Kanye can be heard saying, “Are they f—–g crazy? Whoa by 50 percent [I am more influential than] Stanley Kubrick, Picasso, Apostle Paul, f—–g Picasso and Escobar. By 50 percent more influential than any other human being. Don’t f–k with me. Don’t f–k with me. Don’t f–k with me. By 50 percent dead or alive, by 50 percent for the next 1,000 years. Stanley Kubrick, ‘Ye.”
He also calls Taylor Swift a ‘fake ass’ and going crazy on NBC staffers.“Look at that s–t they took my f—–g stage off’a SNL without asking me. I am bummed … If I am going to do this we are breaking the m———–g Internet.” A source adds that Kanye went to call the staffers names. “It was like he was having an emotional breakdown. He was calling the crew ‘white m———–s’ and then said he was going to walk out. The only thing that stopped him from actually leaving right then was that nobody had access to the freight elevator. If he’d walked out on the live show, it would have been a disaster. And the whole meltdown was just because of the floor. ”
Another source added, “Right before he was about to go on live television they took his stage apart. Like any artist, he’s a perfectionist, and wanted his performance to be right. Of course he was upset.”
Lorne Michaels has to calm down the rapper.
