On Air Now
The Capital Weekender With Ministry of Sound 10pm - 6am
It's not like Kanye to cause controversy and argue with his fellow celebrities, is it? WHO ARE WE KIDDING?! Here's a rundown of the juiciest, beefiest rows between Yeezy and his poor victims!
And in the blue corner, weighing in at 76kg, we have pop-legacy and GRAMMY-winner, Justin, who - after releasing 'Suit and Tie' - was criticised by Kanye West, for the song, saying: "Man, I got love for Hov, but I ain't f***ing with that Suit and Tie". But Timberlake won with a knockout when he rewrote the lyrics to his 2013 hit, so they read "My hits so sick / Got rappers acting dramatic". Can someone get Kanye some aloe vera for that burn?
It's the Heavyweight fight that the whole world has been waiting for. The feud began back in 2009 when - as TayTay went to collect her VMA for 'Best Female Video' - Kanye interrupted her when he was "gonna let her finish", even though he believed the award was rightfully his pal Beyoncé's. Since then, the pair have had several heated rows, including their most recent, when he used her name in a slanderous lyric for 'Famous', which he says Taylor approved, but she denies the whole thing!
It's the clash of the rapping heroes, this time round. The row began on Twitter, where Wiz accused Kanye of copying a Harlem rapper's title name for his upcoming album (now called 'The Life of Pablo'). Wiz posted saying "Please don't take the wave", to which Kanye - totally unlike Kanye - went off on a full blown rant, hitting out at Khalifa's music, his sense of style and even the mother of his child (and Kanye's OWN ex-girlfriend), Amber Rose...
We weren't going to allow tag-teams in this boxing event, but... Why not?! Amber jumped in to defend herself during Kanye's beef with Wiz. And she DEFINITELY won within the first round after she humiliated him in front of her 3.73 million followers on Twitter, saying "Awww @kanyewest are u mad I'm not around to play in your a******e anymore? #FingersInTheBootyA**B***h". And THIS is why Twitter is the greatest thing on the planet. Ever.
This is pretty much THE shock fight of the century... But one we're so, so, SO glad happened. Jimmy Kimmel, the comedian KNOWN for lightly joking about with celebrities, did - well - he joked about with celebrities, when he did a sketch based on Kanye's attitude. Gulp. Kanye took offence to this, and posted the following: "SHOULD I DO A SPOOF ABOUT YOUR FACE OR YOU F**KING BEN AFFLECK... #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK #ALLDISRESPECTTOJIMMY" (We're guessing Kanye had a stick Caps Lock key...)
Remember Kanye's video for 'Touch the Sky' when he performed an incredible death-defying motorcycle stunt in a white cape. Sound familiar? Well... DING, DING, DING! The legendary stuntman, Evel Knievel filed a lawsuit against the star, but Kanye's lawyers said it was purely satire, and was therefore a free-for-all. But it appears that the two made-up and even went round to each other's houses, to make sure there was no bad blood.
If you've already seen the Kanye v Taylor fight, you probably won't want to watch this. As Beck received his GRAMMY for 'Best Album of the Year', Kanye found this quite offensive and slated the decision, deeming it as "disrespectful to inspiration", and that he needs to - wait for it, 'cos it may surprise you - hand over his award to Beyoncé for her aptly named album 'Beyoncé'.
And the for the final round, we have Kanye West fighting... a cartoon version of Kanye West. The show mocked Kanye West for his apparent lack of humour and tendency to get angry way too quickly, after his character was being labelled as a "gay fish" for liking fish sticks. Obviously. Kanye actually wrote that - despite the episode being quite funny - it hurt his feelings. Sure, that is pretty sad, but... C'MON! Just try to tell us you didn't laugh, okay?
