Kanyegeddon: Was Kanye West’s Epic Meltdown A Big Fat PR Stunt or Something Much Darker?

by GiovanniFebruary 18, 2016

Whether you like Kanye West, his music, or how weird line of women’s fashion or not, his recent meltdown has taken even his detractors by surprise.  Kanye’s antics have crossed over from the usual PR stunt to the bizarre, causing many to wonder if he has totally lost it. Or if he needs professional help. Before. It’s Too. Late. Here’s a roundup of Kanye’s most recent meltdowns. You decide.

Kanye’s Epic SNL Meltdown Caught On Tape

Kanye Meltdown


Kanye almost walked out of his recent appearance on Saturday Night Live due to some issue he had with the floor on the set, or something.  Little did he know someone was recording him making some very bizarre statements about how great he thinks he is.

“They took my f—ng stage off of SNL without asking me,  Now I’m bummed.” Then he calls Taylor Swift a “fake ass” and declares himself 50 percent more influential than any human being dead or alive, including Stanley Kubrick, Pablo Picasso, Pablo Escobar, and Apostle Paul. Sadly, none of these names even rhyme.

Kanye Tweets for Dollars

Kanye tweeted on Feb. 13 that he was $53 million in debt, and openly asked  billionaires like Mark Zuckerberg and Larry Page for financial aid. So far neither one has replied.  His cry for help on Twitter Mad little sense after Kanye’s decision to allow his album new Life of Pablo to be streamed for free at Tidal. Who basically give away your music for free  if you eed $53 million?

All Kanye asked for in return was for donations so he could “bring more beautiful ideas to the world.”

By Feb 17th, Kanye had calmed down and seen the light.

Kanye SuperFan Launches GoFundMe page to raise $53 Million for Kanye

Since that idea isn’t working out so well (who uses Tidal besides Jay-Z and Beyoncé?) superfan Jeremy Piatt came to the rescue and created a GoFundMe web page to help fund the rapper’s future music and fashion endeavors.

“We must open our hearts and wallets for Kanye today,” he wrote. “Sure he is personally rich and can buy furs and houses for his family, but without our help, the true genius of Kanye West can’t be realized.” Aww.

So far they have barely raised $5,000, or what Kanye West would call lunch money without the tip. What’s great about the page is the donors who get to leave a comment, mostly making fun of Kanye. Like these:

This superfan promises he will give all the money to Kanye.  Sure he will.
