Kanye West At Governors Ball: “Assholes Deserve To Be Alone”

Published

Kanye West put on an emotional and high intensity performance to close out this weekend’s Governors Ball Music Festival in New York. The rapper used the show as a platform to introduce the tens of thousands in the crowd to some of his new music, including “I am a god”, “Black Skinhead” and “New Slaves” off his highly anticipated Yeezus album.

It was the first time the rapper performed the tracks in front of a crowd this large, and the reception was electric. “we ain’t got no single to radio”, the rapper told the crowd. “We ain’t even got no cover”, he continued, laughing.

Ye also went through his ever-growing archive of music, knocking out songs like “All Falls Down”, “Jesus Walks”, “Can’t Tell Me Nothing”, “Cold”, “Clique” and “Flashing Lights.” It was coming out of “Runaway” that the rapper had his “emotional moment”, an event that’s becoming a staple during his shows.

Kanye used his latest open mic night to profess he was an “asshole” to the crowd. “If I said your hair look bad tonight, baby it’s because I’m an asshole,” he told the crowd, sounding more like he was offering an apology to Kim Kardashian than performing a song. “If I told you I didn’t like that dress, it’s because I’m an asshole,” he continued before declaring, “and assholes deserve to be alone.”

Whether assholes deserve to be alone or not remains to be seen, but judging by the rapper’s fandom at Governors Ball, we’re not sure he’ll be alone anytime soon unless it’s a self-induced isolation.

Reports: Chante Moore Accused Of Financing New Album With Stolen Money

Looks like Chante Moore has got some explaining to do!

The “Chante’s Got A Man” singer is being looped in a messy fraud and racketeering case that essentially led to two men claiming they were defrauded out of $3.6 million.

According to reports, the former “R&B Divas: LA” star knowingly accepted money that was fraudulently obtained by a criminal enterprise and using it to produce her latest album and artificially inflate her sales.

The two men are have filed a lawsuit and claim the defendants used some of their money to buy Moore plane tickets for her musical tour, lavish her with gifts, fund the production of and marketing campaign for her seventh album, “The Rise of the Phoenix,” and even to “pay off her significant personal debt.”

They also claim their money was used to open a hair bar in Georgia, and buy a house.

The plaintiffs say Moore knew the money was obtained illegally and the investments made into her career “were designed in whole or in part to conceal or disguise the nature, the location, the source, the ownership, and the control of the proceeds” of the alleged illegal activity.

It gets even messier though. The two men also claim the money was used to “artificially enhance” her album sales through iTunes purchases. Since they believe their money was used to “directly used to finance the launching of Moore’s latest resurgence effort with her new album, including all advertising and marketing efforts put forth therewith,” they believe they are entitled to any profits from the record.

If you’re wondering what Moore has to say about the situation, she is denying the allegations and wants the case thrown out.

Back in July we caught up with Moore who gushed about her new album and not feeling pressure to stay relevant in the changing music climate.
