It was the last thing anybody wanted to hear.
Kanye West massively ticked off the Wireless Festival audience over the weekend when he stopped his show to go on a good old fashioned rant. His subjects? How hard it is to be a celebrity (really meaning, y’know: him). How he’s more of a porcupine or a blowfish. How he’s shy, but also arrogant, but also lazy. How he’s telling the truth from up there on the stage and that we all JUST. CAN’T. HANDLE. IT. It was like this for 20 minutes. Each night. Needless to say people were not pleased as boos and chants of “Off, off, off!” rippled through the crowds.

We totally understand, we’re not at Wireless for a lecture – but maybe if Kanye had taken a more gentle approach to his message everyone would have embraced it more. So we’ve gone ahead and helped him out by making some Truth According To Kanye Motivational Posters featuring some of our favourite Kanye Wireless Rant quotes.
There, don’t you feel inspired by Kanye’s pure truth?
