Kanye West Calls Out Beyoncé & Jay Z - Cancels Shows

Kanye West has once again proven himself to be somewhat erratic and subscribe to an individual form of logic. During the rapper's show in Sacramento on Saturday night, he launched into Beyoncé, indignantly opposing her reported demand to be awarded with the American Music Awards top honor if she was to perform at the ceremony. Kanye told the crowd: "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.'"
"In my opinion — now, don't go tryin' to diss Beyoncé, she is great. Taylor Swift is great," Kanye continued. "We are all great people, we are all equal. But sometimes, we be playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are — just to win. F*** winning! F*** looking cool! F*** looking cool! F*** being cool! F*** all that!"
He then set his sights on Jay Z, calling out his former collaborator for not returning a phone call. West also spoke against Hillary Clinton. At the end of the night Kanye then embraced Kid Cudi - with whom he has recently been fighting, via twitter.
The show in Sacramento ended after only three songs, refunds are being issued. He also cancelled his rescheduled show in Los Angeles.
Following the announcement of the cancelled shows, Kanye took to his newly registered Instagram account, posting 99 shots from past Maison Margiela lookbooks. Check out those stylin' posts below:
