Kanye West Set To Premiere New Music On SNL?

Published

on

It’s confirmed, Kanye West will appear on SNL on May 18th.

After weeks of speculation about West returning to the show, NBC made an official announcement on Friday morning confirming the news. West is set to perform on the season finale, with Argo star Ben Affleck taking up hosting duties for the fifth time.

Kanye was last on the show back in 2010 when he performed “Power” and “Runaway.” The rapper had been involved in a little spat with the cast before that appearance after they poked fun at him following his infamous encounter with Taylor Swift at the MTV Music Awards. West addressed the beef in “Power,” rapping:

“F*ck SNL and the whole cast / Tell them Yeezy said they can kiss my whole a** / More specifically they can kiss my a**hole / I’m an a**hole? You n*ggas got jokes”.

That being said, Yeezy changed his verse for the show, opting to take the diss out and rap about religious zealots instead.

Not much is known about Kanye’s May 18th appearance, but you can probably expect the lyricist to debut new music. Mr. West has spent a significant portion of 2013 in Paris working on new material.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

Published

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
