Kanye West threw a tantrum during his Tampa, Fla. concert on Saturday night stopping the show after only three songs, demanding the lights be turned off, spewing an expletive rant at his tech crew and storming off stage.
According to The Tampa Tribune, West was displeased with the lighting scheme and said the lasers shooting out of the mountain “suck” — and he also barated a tech named “Laura” who forgot to give him a “deep voice” on his mic.
After a short delay West, 36, returned to the stage, but continued on various rants and the crowd became particularly restless during one that lasted more than 14 minutes.
The Florida news outlet reports “West went off on ‘nice, good, safe celebrities’ who hold their tongue out of fear, dreaming that he was Steve Jobs, the Wright Brothers, Thomas Edison and Nelson Mandela, and the way both ‘haters’ and fans benefit him in the end.”
“How many people you know that you talk to on a day-to-day basis that made a … mountain open up in Tampa tonight,” Kanye asked the crowd of 7,000.
“So all the other [things] I’m talking about, is it crazy or is it possible?”
