Kanye West was booed by the audience yet again at the Wireless Music Festival in London on Saturday. A few weeks ago, West was also booed at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival after comparing himself to other great artists and shouting that he is the number one rock star on the planet.
West entered the stage late, and after just 15 minutes into his set, he stopped the music and started ranting. “I’m very shy in real life. Because I’m too shy to put out some bu******. Sometimes it’s hard because I’m too shy to carry off a lot. I’m arrogant and shy and a little bit lazy,” he said.
“They’ve taken the idea of celebrity and tried to make me seem like I was stupid or something,” he continued. The rant went on longer than his performance, which angered the audience.

The rapper went on to say that celebrities like himself need an off day, too. “The only reason I’m on this stage right now is because y’all my clique. You know I go to the studio til 3am so you can listen to the music in your car,” he said.
The audience started chanting, “We want Drake!” Drake was supposed to headline the Wireless Music Festival, but he cancelled at the last minute, as he wasn’t feeling well.

One furious fan took to Twitter and said, “If anyone is going to wireless tomorrow GET A REFUND! Kanye sings for 20 minutes then literally does a speech for 35 minutes!!” Another user said, “Kanye West!! Gimp mask on ranting about LV & Gucci whilst people stand in the pissing down rain at Wireless I can’t get down with that!!”

Although there were reports that West was booed off the stage, he actually finished his set and went back to performing after his rant.
