Kanye West's most recent act that pissed off middle-aged white people came from playing wedding singer for the grandson of the Kazakhstan (yes, Kazakhstan) President. According to The Independent
President Nazarbayev has been accused of violating human rights and corruption. But West ignored international condemnation of the government led by the oil-rich autocrat to perform tracks such as "Can't Tell Me Nothing" at the lavish celebrations.
claims that West was paid $3 million for his performance at the wedding. To which we say:
Can we really blame Ye for taking up such an enormous offer? Hell, I might help a friend shovel toxic waste over the weekend for an extra hundred fifty bucks. I can only imagine who I'd be willing to piss off for a couple million. The moral of the story is: Do any of us really know exactly where our paychecks are coming from every week? I don't. For this, I salute you Kanye...
