Kim Kardashian & Kanye West were jackasses at Bonnaroo, because of course


Kim Kardashian and Kanye West traveled to Manchester, Tennessee this weekend after their “second honeymoon” in Mexico. They went to Bonnaroo, where Kanye performed. Kim was just there to keep him company and to famewhore, I guess. Most people are talking about her one Instagram selfie where it looks like she’s almost topless. She isn’t. She’s wearing a nude bra under a see-through shirt/leotard thing. It looks tacky, but that’s synonymous with “Kardashian” at this point.

Kim also IG’d a blurry photo of Kanye and herself while she toted around two big glasses of wine. Is that her function on tour with Kanye? She’s the wine-holder? Perhaps. And you know what? I bet it didn’t even occur to either of them that they could have stopped in LA and picked up North so she could come too. Why would they do that though? That poor baby has seen her mom like three times in the past six weeks.

Meanwhile, Kanye made an ass out of himself on stage. Because of course he did. Yeezington in the house!

Kanye – who was supported by his new wife Kim Kardashian at the annual music and arts festival – made use of his headlining position to deliver one of his infamous speeches about himself. Dressed in layers upon layers of tie-dye fabric, the 37-year-old Yeezus star began his verbal assault.

‘I want y’all to know that when I’m in the studio or doing an interview or making a T-shirt, I give everything I got,’ he told the crowd. He then went on to explain that the reason he brags about how great he is, is so that he can impart that sense of self-worth onto his fans.

‘When I talk that s***, it’s so you can talk that s***. If you’re fan of me, then you’re fan of your motherf***ing self.’ He cried out that ‘this is only the beginning,’ before listing off those that he intends to surpass in his career. ‘I ain’t concerned about anyone who’s living,’ Kanye clarified. ‘I ain’t going after no one on the radio. I’m going after Shakespeare. I’m going after Walt Disney. I’m going after Howard Hughes. I’m going after David Stern. I’m going after Henry Ford. I’m going after Elon Musk,’ he went on, adding a note about the founder of Tesla: ‘okay he is living, but that’s my boy.’

Though critics of Kanye’s fervent self-promotion are likely having a field day with this one, they could hardly argue with the logic he presented.

‘Whether you believe it or not,’ the hitmaker said, ‘you can only achieve as high as you believe.’

[From The Mail]

Kanye continued:

Shakespeare ain’t nothin’. You gotta dream to achieve these realness because we’re rolling like Napoleon up in here and Galileo motherf—kers just be hatin’ on these steeze cause they don’t know how Yeezus Christ is the end all be all of the joint we call the cosmos, Neil deGrasse Tyson better watch his ass y’all. Imma go after Winston Churchill next, how y’all like that?

As I’m reading that back to myself, I kind of think I nailed it. I can totally picture Kanye saying that. Right? *rubs temples*

    How did they even fit so much class into bonnaroo?

  2. jonB says:

    Can someone tell her she’s no longer 18 ?!

  3. eliza says:

    I heard from people I know who went that the general consensus is that Kanye ruined Bonnaroo.

  4. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Shakespeare is still relevant centuries after he created his work. Somehow I doubt the same will be said of this horse’s ass.

  5. TheCountess says:

    People who pay to listen to Kanye West perform get exactly what they deserve.

    Ah, Kim. Such a delicate little fashion flower. Lucifer’s Homegirl must be proud of that getup.

  6. Ali J says:

    At least trashy kim is wearing a bra. (cough Rihanna cough)

  7. katy says:

    Kim’s face looks freshly toxed and her lips freshly (and excessively) plumped in that selfie.

    Also – holy frijoles, horrible fashion sense! That outfit is NOT doing her any favors – it makes her look really broad when viewed head on. And her boobs need some actual support because damn, my back hurts just looking at that picture.

  8. HH says:

    Kaiser – You totally nailed it! And that’s actually sad because of how ridiculous it sounded. That’s just how douchey he is. #nodisrespecttokaiser #alldisrespecttokanye

  9. Intro Outro says:

    Self-confidence should always be balanced by self-awareness. Kinda looks like this guy’s scales are very seriously off lol.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      I don’t know who decided being a strutting, bragging doofus equals “self-confident.” This guy is a tower of insecurity, no self-confident person needs to iterate the list of people they’re going to “top”, ad nauseam, at every opportunity.

      • Christin says:

        Exactly. When one has to tell others how great he or she is, the opposite is likely true.

      • lucy2 says:

        Exactly Christin. And his rantings seem to have gotten worse and more frequent since Kim, so I’m guessing all the criticism and, let’s face it, laughing at him, has gotten to him. He might as well stand up there and say “I’m OK, I didn’t marry a famewhore, I’m OK, people will still take me seriously.”

        Nice to know he gives it everything he’s got when he’s making t-shirts. Meanwhile, spending time with his daughter…not so much.

  10. livinglavitalola says:

    Kanye looks & acts like a fool.

    Kim looks miserable even when she smiles.

  11. Mrs Fonzieface says:

    Today is Nori`s birthday (I only know that because it’s mine too). What are the odds she’ll spend it with her parents?

  12. Camille says:

    Lets talk about how Kuntrashians raitings are krashing and how E! is panicking. What a great news. These are the moments that makes life worth living.

  13. Jaquebelle says:

    Extremes of anything is not a good thing. Kanye is a talented artist, but there is not an ounce of humility in him. And he certainly is NOT the best there ever was in any genre. Meanwhile I see Kim hitched herself on the Rihanna sheer less fashion bandwagon and failed as only she could. I generally do not wish ill on folks, but their inevitable downfall will be epic and entertaining as all out. One love.

  14. Tiffany27 says:

    Jesus build a fence around little Nori. That’s all I got.

  15. FLORC says:

    Bonnaroo hasn’t been good in a while. The quality of crowds has been awful. Less chill and more entitled.

    • delphi says:

      Yes! Florc nailed it. I remember going to Bonnaroo back in ’04/’05 with my college friends. We were all in Kentucky, so the drive to Manchester was easy-peasy. Widespread Panic, The Roots, Talib Kweli, Nickel Creek, The Decemberists, Robert Plant, Leonard Cohen…it was fab. Plus, lots of unsigned regional acts were able to get exposure outside of the bar scene. The worst things you had to contend with were strong winds ripping your tent down, sunburn, and a near-constant contact buzz. It’s declined into another “see and be seen” event rather than being about the music.

      Now it’s gone all corporate and become nothing more than Coachella’ s low-rent east coast cousin. They stopped inviting talented acts and instead gear everything towards gimmicky acts that record companies essentially lease the stages for. Ugh. Rumor around here is they want to add lots of EDM “artists” to next year’s lineup. I don’t mean to throw shade at that genre or its fans, but there are literally dozens of EDM festivals each year. There’s only one Bonnaroo.

      Ugh…the shark, I fear she has been jumped.

      • TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

        Yes, that’s why my son and friends went to Mountain Jam look it up; Not commercial – at least not yet – like Bonnaroo and Coachella – being close to Hollywood has hurt Coachella. I’ve read bonnaroo sells VIP packages now – so much for the music.

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      You mean it’s simply evolved the way these teenagers and young adults have evolved [in the sense of entitlement]. I’m 25 so I’m right in the middle of that weird age group. My next door neighbor has an eighteen year old and a twenty year old and the way they act (not just her kids but when I got out I see others as well) would have made my mother slap me in the mouth and remember how I was raised.

  16. KB says:

    She looks like she’s farting on the crowd

  17. Ruyana says:

    Kanye’s rants make him sound certifiably insane, completely out of touch with the real world, and just sick, sick, sick.

    I feel so sorry for that baby. A maniac for a father and an empty-headed mannequin for a mother.

  18. Sayrah says:

    I would never take a baby to Bonnaroo. It’s a crazy scene.

  19. deb says:

    As previously stated, kimye was booed at the concert. I haven’t seen any articles reporting on that. I really wish they would promote a charity instead of theirselves. I do hope they show up for their babies birthday, and do so without cameras.

  20. Kate2 says:

    ‘When I talk that s***, it’s so you can talk that s***. If you’re fan of me, then you’re fan of your motherf***ing self.’

    Yes, that’s what we need. A whole generation of people talking like this. I feel better knowing he was booed.

  21. ughinsomnia says:

    I’m just sad that these two came so close to where I live. Literally no one I know who went likes Kanye.

  22. truthful says:

    I saw a clip of his rant and he got boo’ed so bad he had them crank up the next song, folks were walking out and booing loudly, pathetic.

    at one point he was screaming a rant over the boo’s but the boo’s won, LOL

  23. irishserra says:

    And yet the names he’s spewing will be/have been remembered for their accomplishments and contributions. They weren’t standing on a platform for the world to see shouting and pleading for adoration and worship. When Kanye’s time is up he will primarily be remembered for his ridiculous antics, shitty treatment of other people and lack of ability to properly use the English language. Now that’s a famewhore.

  24. A Fan says:


    [*That's all I can come up with for these two*]

  25. Jasmine says:

    Not to defend them at all but there were pics of them stopping in LA on a private jet to pick up North before they went to the festival.

    • eliza says:

      I don’t really see how that matters, as no SANE person is going to take a 1yr old to a rock festival, so that means Nori was with nannies in a hotel or tour bus. Certainly not spending but a few minutes in the company of her parents.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      I have to say, that’s not much of a defense, they paused in their whirlwind of dashing hither and yon for no reason for a photo-op of them taking their infant daughter across the country again, for no reason. Babies are not toys to be left and picked up at their pleasure and no amount of claiming to be a loving parent will ever make up for the neglect these two are providing their daughter. I’m putting money on, “they will live to regret this”, bad parenting ALWAYS comes home to roost.

  26. melain says:

    Do my eyes deceive me or is Kim wearing a Members Only jacket?

  27. jasmine says:

    “I want y’all to know that when I’m in the studio or doing an interview or making a T-shirt, I give everything I got,”

    HAhahahahah!!! Making a t-shirt!!! that part killed me!!! Yes because making a t-shirt takes so much creative genius that it overpowers him…this guy is completely delusional! How can she even stand to be in his presence all the time???

  28. linlin says:

    That poor baby hasn’t seen her PARENTS in six weeks- why do you just single out her mom?

  29. Nighty says:

    KK and KW were jacka*ses at Bonnaroo, I’d be surprised if it was the other way around and that they acted normal and sensibly.. Hey, as we say in my language: “I’d ring the bells of the church”,; one says this when something “miraculous” happens…

  30. Lora says:

    You’d think, that someone who is as image obsessed as kim, would bother to spend time with nori, after all that backlash she is getting… But why spend time with your kid, right?!

  31. hmmm says:

    He sounds positively psychotic. He’s certainly no James Joyce. Man, his ego sucks up all the air in a room.

  32. aquarius64 says:

    Another round of verbal diarrhea spewed in public. Donda West is whirling in her grave: a narcissistic jackass for a son and a trashbox for a daughter-in-law. Praying that the baby doesn’t inherit the crap from either parent.

    P.S. – I read the tweets about the boo-birds out during Kanye’s set. Dollar bet Pimp Momma Kris and Kim are looking for the escape clause in that pre-nup to plan the exit strategy. The count-down to the End of Marriage No. 3 has begun….

    • Dawn says:

      Not that I don’t think you are right because I think you are dead on but I don’t think they are smart enough to realize just how fast KanYe is falling within the business and his fans. People are simply sick to death of him and his delusions and she will bankrupt the dude quickly at this rate. Nope they still think they are riding on the A train and doors are going to fly open. Give it another six months for it to sink in that it will not be the case. Let’s see how much she likes being his perfect bitch then. It should be interesting to see who she will set her sights on next. Or maybe PMK will dump her and concentrate on the Jenner girls. We shall see!

  33. Anastasia says:


    That’s it. He’s 100,000% delusional.

  34. the original bellaluna says:

    What do you expect from someone who wouldn’t even give ANDREA BOCELLI a glass of WATER after he SANG AT THEIR WEDDING?

  35. LaurieH says:

    It’s funny…. Kim slams her 57 year old mother for not knowing her age (which is all well and true) but does Kim not know hers?? Kim might dismiss such criticism by pointing out that she still looks good (“good” being completely subjective) but then, so does her mother. It’s not a matter of fitting into something or passing as looking good wearing it. It’s a matter of propriety. And I don’t mean that in the puritanical sense (in case any of your ruffs were raised). I mean that in the sense that as women age, they feel compelled to “compete” with youth. Youth is wonderful – we all enjoy it. But it is but one chapter of our (God willing) long lives. And while it may be our most energetic, aware, full-bloom portion of our lives (pre-supposing one divides life into four equal parts) it is not any more important or beautiful than the other parts. Grace in life means fully experiencing each phase of life, but knowing when it to let go and move on to the next and celebrate that next phase with full passion. Let children be children. Let young adults act the fool, make mistakes and savor the delicious “mulligan” phase of life. Let the middle-aged, such as myself, embrace the pinnacle of our wisdom and maturity and stand as a light house for the youngers searching their way through life’s fog. And let our elders, who deserve our utmost respect, teach us that as everything changes, nothing changes – that what matters is love and love, unlike a fad, is forever.

  36. Monksolo says:

    He talks like a cult-leader. The subtext of everything he says is that he is great. Now I get why some people like him.

  37. Emma13 says:

    You totally nailed it! I actually thought I was reading a part of his rant that had been left out of the article.

  38. Lendy says:

    My favorite part? He’s naming all these people. He gets to the lead singer of Tesla, who still alive. But he has to be interrupted. Then he like oh. That made me laugh. Please Kanye don’t sot giving interviews. That’s comedy gold right there.

  39. amara says:

    I can’t stand either one of these clowns. I highly dislike them both and can’t find one nice thing to say about them. I also for the life of me can’t understand how or why some women, especially the ones my age, look up to this b!tch and worship everything she does. She is disgusting in so many ways.

  40. Naomi says:

    Kris competes with Kim. She has been copying or attempting to coordinate clothing for a while and now it seems she is starting to do so with selfies. Kris formed Kim into the person she couldn’t be and I believe she is living vicariously through her. It should be interesting as Nori grows up to see how the three generations play off one another.

    • magpie says:

      Classic stage mom syndrome. Living vicariously through their kids. She manufactured Kim to get that fame and then vampired it out to the whole family except poor depressive Rob. Really interested to see how trashy the youngest 2 will get. And Nori is Willow Smith in 12 years.

  41. Dommy Dearest says:

    I’m not understanding why he’s going after people that are dead? What does he mean? He makes no sense. I got my hopes up at the end when he mentioned Tesla and then I realized he wasn’t talking about Nikola Tesla. I thought maybe he’d go off ranting on how Tesla was robbed by Edison. But no, I see now he didn’t.

  42. Lux says:

    I’m starting to get serious Mercy (the cat) vibes where North is involved. It seems she’s only around when it’s not an inconvenience/serves some sort of publicity related purpose/doesn’t screw with their lives of easy narcissism and constant vacations.

  43. jwoolman says:

    We can hardly accuse Kim of famewhoring when she’s just accompanying Kanye at his performance and the rest of the event. And thank goodness she didn’t bring Nori… Really, people. If we stop mentioning it, maybe she’ll forget about the kid entirely and Nori will be able to have a relatively quiet upbringing amongst whatever members of family (on both sides) who are still sane. And about her birthday- it doesn’t matter to a one year old. Let her smear some cake on her face at dinner and she’ll be happy. Birthday parties for babies are not for the baby.

    But Kanye- oh, my. I hope it’s mostly a poorly conceived act, because he sounds manic and not in a good way. I wonder if Kim is reconsidering her deal with the devil (undoubtedly brokered by her Demon Mother). I wonder if Demon Mother encouraged her to get pregnant to seal the deal financially? Or was it just an accident? Kim just doesn’t seem to be enjoying motherhood at all. Good thing for Nori, though. Kim will be confusing enough for her as she gets older, better if Kim finds ways to keep her distance.

  44. Jayna says:

    She just loves her photo-ops, doesn’t she? Ugh. Make sure to open the jacket for that money shot.

  45. Mltpsych says:

    Besides the see through top, her pants are so tight that until I clicked on the pic it looks like she has a big bulge in her pants.

  46. d b says:

    So basically he’s saying something like, dream big, and your reach should exceed your grasp, Right? Whatever. He kind of scares me, because I can see his career stalling and hers is going down the dumper. The Kardashians is losing its audience fast — down 29% compared to last season. I don’t think either of them can handle it.

  47. Jayna says:

    I just turned on her show. I haven’t seen it iin a long time and I was channel surfing. And I landed on their show when Kim was saying Kris has taught her that true fabulousness comes from within.

    I’m on the floor laughing.

  48. lucy2 says:

    Great googly moogly. I just watched the clip of him being booed at Bonnaroo, and he’s just screaming “Where’s the press at?”
    If you’re looking for the cameras, follow the vacant star of your wife, sir.

  49. Jenny jenny says:

    I read that Nori was with them in TN and they sent one of their “people” out to pottery barn to get her a crib. …

    • 30winks says:

      Yes. I saw photos of them stopping in LA to pick up Nori on their way from Mexico to TN. I’m not a fan of theirs, but they did pick up their daughter and take her to TN. She was with them for Father’s Day and her 1st Bday. Probably with the nanny, but she was in the same state.

  50. Caz says:

    Ratings are 28% down. I now have to explain to co-workers why I just exclaimed “woo hoo” in the middle of the office :)

    The End is nigh. Yee hah! It’s really happening!!!!

  51. eva k says:

    Ok this guy has been going off about how he’s a virtuoso of art and fashion for a while now. But other than making music, what else has he made/created? Has he actually made these t-shirts he keeps talking about? Where is all the stuff he’s a master-of-his-time about? I’m serious. Can anyone answer? And I’ve only heard a few of his songs, but really?? I don’t understand why he’s so popular.

  52. brian says:

    “Fuck Kanye” was the battle cry at Bonnaroo. Seem Connie West ( I call him Connie cause he’s such a little bitch), think’s he’s a greater talent than Jim Morrison or Hendrix. Hmm? didn’t realize narcissism could make you that much money.
