Kanye West's Ranting Fell Flat In London

It's common knowledge at this point: Kanye West is big on lengthy, censor-free rants during his live shows, and sharp sermons take over a small portion of every set list on the Yeezus tour.

Despite the fact that fans are used to Ye's penchant for venting, the crowd at London's Wireless Festival wasn't too receptive to the 20-minute opinion portion of the program during his time onstage last night. Maybe the fans were disappointed that the intended headliner, Drake, had to cancel at the last minute due to sickness, or perhaps they just weren't feeling the Yeezus show at all. Either way, boos erupted across the festival after Kanye riffed on everything from Louis Vuitton to his marriage to Kim Kardashian. "I just want to hang around my awesome friends and change the f--king world!" he cried. A few cheers sprang up, but otherwise, Wireless didn't seem too thrilled to be subject to the Philosophy of Kanye West. And they definitely didn't seem to care about Kanye screaming about his awesome entourage.
