Of course Kanye hasn’t really learned any lessons from the Taylor Swift incident. Of course he’s not really a changed man. Of course Kanye is still the biggest, bitchiest, nastiest diva in any given room. Of course. On Saturday, at the Hollywood Palladium, a fundraiser concert was held for the Common Ground Foundation. In addition to Kanye, Nas, Ludacris, Common, Mos Def, De La Soul, Heavy D and Queen Latifah were also in attendance and performed for the charity. With all of that talent, with all of those entourages, with all of the possible divas in the backstage area, who do you think the biggest bitch was? Kanye! And the drama was about chicken. I shall name this “The Great Chicken Dramz of 2009”.
Apparently, Kanye West’s character-check getaway isn’t going too well.
According to reports, the rapper showed up over the weekend to Common’s highly publicized benefit show at the Hollywood Palladium, and threw another one of his egotistical tantrums backstage.
The rapper was allegedly upset over his not being offered food while in the dressing room backstage. After spotting a man eating chicken, West blurted, “Why wasn’t I offered chicken? You want me to perform for free, [and] everyone is eating… why am I not eating?”
When the waitress explained that he never asked for food, ‘Ye yelled, “Well, I’m asking now!” After receiving chicken, he allegedly proceeded to take a bite and then throw the rest in the trash. Meanwhile, the rapper’s beau Amber Rose, stood silent, while other celebrities backstage watched in awe.
Other guests that night included Nas, Ludacris, Mos Def, De La Soul, Heavy D and Queen Latifah.
Yeah, why didn’t the waitress just know that Kanye wanted chicken, without him even having to ask for it? It takes real balls to pitch a hissy at a charity concert… over chicken that you didn’t ask for. Did I say “balls”? I meant “Kanye is nasty little brat who should grow the f-ck up”.
Fox News Pop Tarts has another version of Kanye at the charity concert – their sources claim that Kanye appeared to be “really nervous” and “keeping a low profile” backstage, quietly “thanking anyone who would bother to listen.” Then something happened:
Common told the sold-out crowd that he asked his buddy West to perform for the charitable cause but with all that happened with him and the backlash he received from the VMAs (oh, poor Kanye) he sent his love and apologized he wasn’t able to make it. But despite recently vowing to take a break from the limelight, West couldn’t help himself at the event.
“He stormed the stage and everyone went insane,” a partygoer told Tarts. “After the show he seemed much more outgoing, back to his old self…”
Hmmm, so is that a good thing?
Meanwhile his girlfriend Amber Rose hung chilled on the VIP couch, Common’s leading lady Serena Williams who was celebrating her 26th birthday.

I bet Amber Rose was chillin’ with some chicken. HATER! Maybe not though – Amber has a new piercing– it’s a diamond hoop on the middle of her bottom lip. If she got it over the weekend, she was probably not eating for fear of infection. I find it gross… but I’m sure Kanye likes it. He seems to like really gross things.
