If you have been keeping up with "The Life Of Pablo" rapper Kanye West then you know that the 39-year-old rapper has gone off the deep end. After admitting to fans at a previous show that he would have voted for president-elect Donald Trump, many of his fans have turned against the star and proceeded to bash him. Things got worse when he went on a rant and attacked Jay-Z and Beyonce. Now his tour has paid the ultimate price.
According to E!News, Kanye West has officially canceled the remianing dates of his Saint Pablo Tour. The news which has just hit media outlets has fans outraged and others not surprised with his move.
"The remaining dates on the Saint Pablo Tour have been canceled," a rep for West told E! News in a statement. "Tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase."
In the last few shows West had, the rapper canceled shows, made fans wait over an hour for him to grace the stage, and not only pledge his support for president elect Donald Trump, but simulataneously tearing down Beyonce and Jay-Z.
The 10-minute rant, which took fans by surprise in San Jose left a bad taste in their mouths as he criticized Beyonce for not wanting to perform at the VMAs unless she won an award for her hit-song "Formation."
"Beyoncé, I was hurt 'cause I heard that you said you wouldn't perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over 'Hotline Bling.' Now, don't go trying to diss Beyoncé. She is great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all people. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are just to win. F--k winning. F--k looking cool. F--k being cool," the 39-year-old rapper told his fans. "I've been sent here to give y'all my truth even at the risk of my own life, even at the risk of my own success, my own career. I've been sent here to give y'all the truth. Jay Z—call me, bruh. You still ain't called me. Jay Z, call me, Jay Z; I know you got killers. Please don't send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man."
To make matters worse, after making fans wait 90 minutes for his arrival, the rapper only performed three songs then exited the stage saying " "I'm on my Trump s--t tonight."
Yeezus was set to perform in major cities throughout New Year Eve but now he has pulled the plug. Many people have mixed reviews to the news that he has canceled the tour but one things for sure the vast majority of people believe that he is off his rocker.
Of course, some people believe that this is all a publicity stunt being that his three new colorways for the YeezyBoost 350 V2 sneakers will be released later this week. But honestly it seems that no matter what West puts his name on his devoted fans support no matter what.
Both Beyonce and Jay-Z have yet to respond to Kanye's rant but you can rest assure that the power couple will more than likely ignore the rant. It is not usual for Yeezus to cancel a tour despite his opinions not being agreed upon so maybe there is something else going on. We have recently reported that him and Kim Kardashian were rumored to be heading towards divorce. Maybe he is at his wits end?
While we may never know the reason for Kanye's cancellation, I guess relief comes with the fact that fans will be fully refunded for their purchase.
