Did anyone actually make it through the entire Billboard Music Awards? I did not, but let’s proceed.
If you did make it to the end of the show than you probably saw Kanye West perform his song “All Day.”
Oh wait, you didn’t? All you saw was fog and all you could hear were a few words peppered into silence?
Well, that’s because Kanye made no attempts to clean up his song for national television and refused to cut out the n-word from his act.
The silence would go on for at times 15 seconds!
As for the fog, well I guess Kanye’s just not very good at stage design… BUT DON’T TELL HIM THAT! He’s the modern day Michelangelo (in his head), the new Einstein (in his head), the real Oprah (one last time, in his head)!
Apparently, Kanye decided not to do a dress rehearsal and the award show producers just figured that since it would be on live TV, that he’d be on his best behavior.
Not a smart move producers, not a smart move.
“He knew it was national TV,” reveals a production source. “He’s Kanye. What are we supposed to do?”
One thing that could definitely be heard was the audience booing at Kendall and Kylie Jenner as they introduced Yeezus.
One thing I do appreciate is that he wasn’t lipsyncing like every other artist performing last night. Sure, you couldn’t hear him, but whatever.
