Kanye West Hospitalised After Cancelling ‘Saint Pablo’ Tour


2016 has been a year full of ups and downs for Kanye West: he dropped a killer album, went broke and begged Mark Zuckerberg for millions, dropped his Yeezy Season 3 clothing line, his wife was robbed at gun point, won a history-making fued with Taylor Swift, and publicly announced his support for Donald Trump! Now some would say that’s enough drama in a man’s life for one year, but Yeezy isn’t just a man, he’s Yeezy!

In latest news, West has been hospitalised hours just after officially cancelling the remainder of his ‘Saint Pablo’ US tour. NCB Los Angeles report West has been hospitalised at Roland Reagan UCLA Medical Centre for observation, following Los Angles police responding to a “medical welfare” call in which paramedics at the scene made the decision to hospitalise West was made for “his own health and safety.”

The hospitalisation is being linked to the cancellation of the ‘Saint Pablo’ tour, which followed what might have been West’s most obscure concert yet! West’s Saturday night Sacramento concert was a smorgasbord of bizarre comments….

After arriving 90 minutes late, Yeezy performed three songs, then pulled Kid Cudi on stage where they engaged in an emotional hug, squashing the beef once and for all. Then claiming “I’m on my Trump sh*t tonight,” Yeezy embarked on a political rant so ridiculous, it will probably go down in history.

Yeezy then fired shots at Beyoncé, saying “I was hurt, because I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won video of the year over me and Hotline Bling”. Moving on to call out Bey’s husband, Yeezy said “Jay Z, call me bruh. You still ain’t call me….I know you’ve got killers, please don’t send them at my head, just call me. Talk to me like a man.”

After the pissed off, Clinton-loving Sacramento crowd started to boo at West, he proclaimed “You don’t like that? Guess what? Y’all need the vibes…Feelings matter, bro. The way motherf*ckers put money up so high, popularity, radio, spins. Feelings matter, bro. It’s a new world, Hilary Clinton…It’s a new world Barack. It’s a new world Jay Z…let ‘Ye by ‘Ye.”

Following the Sacramento show, the self-proclaimed genius cancelled his Los Angeles concert with no explanation, ultimately leading to the cancellation of his remaining US dates. The US leg of West’s ‘Saint Pablo’ tour planned to stretch into December, however fans will now receive full refunds for their tickets.

There’s no word yet on whether West will take his tour to Europe as planned in 2017. Although Kim Kardashian (softly) confirmed an Australian leg of the ‘Saint Pablo’ tour, official dates have yet to surface.

It’s now a waiting game to fully understand Yeezy’s US cancellation and hospitalisation, but here’s hoping this colourfully controversial rapper returns to the stage soon.
