Kanye Isn’t A Fan Of Censorship
Kanye West‘s Billboard Music Awards performance was horrendous. Between all the pyro and censors Ye was unable to be seen or heard while performing his “All Day” and “Black Skinhead” tracks if you watched from home. The performance was mostly panned by viewers who don’t call everything he does art due to its extreme censorship. After the performance, Billboard ran an article that Kanye West was booed while performing. It magically disappeared shortly after.
Today Kanye West‘s rep released a statement about the performance in which Yeezy apologizes to viewers at home who were unable to enjoy his performance.
“Kanye West was grossly over-censored at the Billboard Music Awards,” the rep wrote. “Non-profane lyrics such as ‘with my leather black jeans on’ were muted for over 30-second intervals. As a result, his voice and performance were seriously misrepresented. It is ridiculous that in 2015, unwarranted censorship is something that artists still have to fight against.
“Although West was clearly set up to face elements beyond his control during the live broadcast, he would like to apologize to the television audience who were unable to enjoy the performance the way he envisioned.”
