Kanye West is known for his blow outs when things don’t go his way. Well, he is super pissed over a B+ rating review of his Glow in the Dark tour in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly! LOL! On Kanye’s website, you can see a screen shot of the low review written by Chris Willman. Below the review, Kanye wrote a expletive rant and asked that everyone protest the review, the grade, and the entire publication. You can view the EW review here, [read entire article here http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20197288,00.html]. In brief,  Willman wrote that he “takes fans on a galactic voyage, folding his hits into a wacked-out space opera that’s the ultimate ego trip. Normally, that’d be an insult, but with West, who’s made an art form out of dramatizing both humility and hubris, it’s mission accomplished.” LOL!  Willman also reviewed opening acts Lupe Fiasco, N.E.R.D. and Rihanna.

He wrote: “Lupe Fiasco has the material to make good on his ‘next Kanye’ status, though he suffered from rapping to studio tracks (and ‘Kick, Push’ deserves more than a reduced medley slot). By contrast, N.E.R.D. rocked out with their full-band set; Pharrell Williams is no great singer, but he’s a great party starter. The glam Rihanna provided respite from all this testosterone and packed an undeniable string of hits into her half hour, moving smoothly through light choreography. But her should-be slam dunk, ‘Umbrella,’ felt off, with the rain-gear-wielding backup dancers working harder to sell the smash than she did.”

West fired back with this note:

       Yo, anybody that’s not a fan; don’t come to my show. For what?! To try and throw ya’ll two cents in? Ya’ll rated my album s**tty and now ya’ll come to the show and give it a B+. What’s a B+ mean? I’m an extremist. It’s either pass or fail! A+ or F-! You know what, f**k you and the whole f**king staff!!! I know I shouldn’t dignify this with a comment, but the reviewer threw a jab at all the artists. I just wanna know when was the last time you enjoyed yourself. If you can’t have fun and lose yourself at this tour it’s a good chance you’re a very miserable person. I actually feel sorry for you guys. Your job forces you to not have fun anymore. Grab a drink, holla at some nice girls, and party b**ch!! You don’t know sh*t about passion and art. You’ll never gain credibility at this rate. You’re fucking trash! I make art. You can’t rate this. I’m a real person. I’m not a pop star. I don’t care about anything but making great art. Never come 2 one of my shows ever again, you’re not invited and if you see me…BOW!! This is not pop, it’s pop art!
In related news, Kanye reportedly stormed off stage during a show in Houston after a technical glitch threatened his performance.

Mid-performance, he shouted, “Turn the f**king screens off,” before stopping the show and exclaiming, “If the s**t’s not working just turn it off,” and storming off. However West then re-emerged and finished his set.
