These days, Kanye West does this thing during his performances where, uhm, well, things get weird. While headlining the Glastonbury Festival on Saturday June 27, Yeezy slipped into Queen’s classic, “Bohemian Rhapsody, and while Kanye smiled his way through the cover, the audience didn’t seem too pleased.
Some disgusted audience members tweeted:
According to reports, over 130,000 people signed a petition demanding Glastonbury cancel Yeezy’s performance, but they didn’t listen and kept him on the bill as the headliner. Kanye’s epic set last 30 songs long and the entire show was under low-hanging florescent lights, you know, so we could see him, since he really loves performing so that people can see it. *Side-eye*
Kanye’s vocals were all over the place as he sang, “Momma, just killed man. Put a gun up to his head.” And even though many audience members sang along with Kanye as he segued into “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” the general consensus was that Yeezy’s rendition of “Bohemian Rhapsody” would have been better left off the long set list.
Maybe that’s why Kanye got Kanye’d? British comedian, Lee Nelson hopped on stage rocking a “Leezus” T-shirt and grabbed a microphone during “Black Skinhead.” Clearly, Kanye was forced to restart his performance because you know, no one Kanyes Kanye. “That was for you Taylor Swift,” Nelson tweeted.
