Kanye, Kanye, Kanye
What didn‘t happen during Kanye West’s three-night stint at Revel?
On the first night, Friday, Dec. 28, the rap star took to the Atlantic City resort’s Ovation Hall stage in an all-white outfit, performing a 75-minute set, during which he wore a pair of masks that made international headlines. The next morning, Rolling Stone offered: “[Kanye] rocked a couple of bizarre full-head masks – a diamond-encrusted one on his remix of Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’ and … some kind of yeti costume (or a werewolf George Washington).”
During Saturday night’s show, West spoke (read: rant) to the crowd on several subjects, including his sanity (”They’ll try to tell you Kanye’s so crazy, so deranged. … I ain’t crazy, I’m just not satisfied”), the upcoming Grammy Awards ceremony in February (”Don’t expect to see me at the Grammys this year,” he said despite receiving six nominations), Lady Gaga, his women’s fashion line and receiving death threats via Twitter.
What made the Twitter word explode was West’s announcement during his Sunday night show that his girlfriend Kim Kardashian was pregnant.
Kardashian was in the 5,000-plus crowd, along with Kris Jenner and Jay-Z.
As soon as West told the crowd that he and Kardashian are expecting their first child, the crowd went nuts — and the Internet soon did as well.
West told his fans to congratulate his “baby mom” and that the pregnancy was the “most amazing thing.”
Revel hosted West five times in 2012, his only solo U.S. appearances since 2011, according to MTV.
