We all know Kanye West isn’t known for thinking before running off his mouth, but it’s sad to say, he’s at it again. This time, he has made the connection that being a performance entertainer is exactly like being a soldier during war, or a police officer patrolling the streets.
Many people are not shocked by West’s egotistical analysis of his life, but he is however leaving what is left of his fan base, shaking their heads. During an interview with SaturdayNightOnline.com, West said:
“I’m putting my life at risk, literally! When I think about when I’m on the Can’t Tell Me Nothing, and Coldest Winter moment, like that mountain goes really, really high. And if I slipped… You never know. And I think about it. I think about my family and I’m like, wow, this is like being a police officer or something, in war or something.”
So let me get this right, walking up a stage prop in the form of a mountain is like getting shot at with live rounds? No? Well at least our soldiers will be sleeping comfortably and warm in their $25,000 fur coats next to their wives and children.
Oh, that’s not right either?

I suppose we shouldn’t be shocked knowing how entitled Kanye thinks he is, but he holds a bit of shock value when it comes to his total disregard for common courtesy. Unfortunately for West however, it seems his abrasive attitude is starting to wear on his, once large, fan base.
He was scheduled to perform a concert out in Kansas recently in an arena that had the potential to hold around 19,000 fans. Kanye only managed to fill 4,500 seats. This along with his recent hissy fit in Tampa, FL, Kayne might be at his career’s breaking point.
While in Tampa, West threw a temper tantrum during the third song of the concert after there was a problem with the lighting. After publicly chewing out the stage help saying, “you’re f*****g up my show,” he went and pouted off stage until the crew could iron out the problem.
Do you wish someone would knock Kanye down a peg or two?
