Kanye West: A Series Of Meltdowns

Commentary | Is Kanye West losing it? By now we’re all used to Kanye West having bi-weekly meltdowns,while spinning verbal tangents that would make beatnik Allen Ginsberg jealous. In the last week Kanye has had meltdowns that could rival his Taylor Swift outburst at the 2009 VMAs.

To some the real Kanye West comes out during his night-time performances, as he continues to make public shows of his love and affection for Kim Kardashian during the day. For every naked photo op celebrating the impending birth of their daughter, there’s another West meltdown. Perhaps the problem is that West’s two worlds are actually colliding.

As of right now Kanye is in Europe promoting, well himself, by performing hits old and new. However, the highlights from his recent trips to Europe seem to be his lengthy tangents, pointing to some inner demons rather than his hits.

As we all know when Kanye West has a meltdown on stage, there’s almost no one that he’s not willing to take up to task in what many seem is a fit of comical rage. During a gig last Friday in Hammersmith Apollo, West seemed to get all of his grievances off his chest during his show, most notably his apparent jealously over the recent success of Justin Timberlake’s song “Suit & Tie.” The “Suit & Tie” song also features West’s mentor and frequent collaborator Jay-Z.

During this meltdown Kanye had words to exchange about “Suit & Tie” ranting to the London crowd: “I’ve got love for Hov but I’m not down with that Suit & Tie s***.” That wasn’t all Kanye wanted to get off of his chest. While his lady Kim Kardashian was partying the night away at Elton John’s Oscar party, Kanye had started the night off by saying, “The Grammys can suck my d***.”
