Kanye West Responds To Wheelchair Incident In New Rant

Published

on

Kanye West says the media is demonizing him for telling a wheelchair-bound audience member to get on their feet and dance during his Sydney Yeezus concert this weekend.

During a Monday rant at his concert in Brisbane, Australia, the 37-year-old decided to point his criticism toward the media who he thinks should be covering more important issues like troops dying and police brutality. Kanye stopped his concert, per usual, and stated that he would rather talk directly to his fans from the stage and address what he thought about the whole situation, than put out a press release or tweet.

“They’ve got this thing where the want the masses, people who have never even heard one of my albums to read a headline that reads negative and to think that I am a bad person,” he stated. “I’m a married Christian man.”

“At my concerts I make sure that everybody has as good a time as possible,” he said about media headlines regarding the wheelchair debacle. “Pick a new target.”

Kanye reportedly did however pay more attention to his wheelchair-bound fans this time around. The Courier Mail, an Australian newspaper, reports that while getting fans to rise to their feet he stated, “Everybody who is not in a wheelchair or handicapped will stand up … If you can not prove to me that you are in a wheelchair you need to be standing, if you can it is okay to sit down.”

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
