Kanye Stops Concert Telling Kid in Wheelchair to Stand Up

 
Kanye West is not exactly known for being Mr. Sensitivity, but after news broke about him stopping his concert to tell a fan in a wheelchair to “stand up,” he might just be the most insensitive person on the planet. At his concert in Sydney on Friday, in the middle of the show Kanye stopped the music and said, “I decided I can’t do this song, I can’t do the rest of the show unless everybody stands up. Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and sh-t.” In the crowd there were two fans that could not stand up as one was in a wheelchair and the other had a prosthetic limb, something that Kanye did not find out until after he made the entire crowd jeer at them to “STAND UP.” The rapper even went so far as to complain about how long it was taking for them saying, “This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song, it’s unbelievable. If he is in a wheelchair, then it’s fine.” Much to his dismay the fan was actually in a wheelchair, so Kanye just went on to continue his show. The entire incident was caught on camera for all of our viewing pleasures.

    Unique Independent Artists from Around the World

    I am an advent Spotify user, and one thing Spotify helped me with was discovering new talents and artists from around the world.
    We live in a Hollywood-saturated industry, and it’s often so hard to find good non-American artists.
    This is a shame because diverse artists will open our minds and ears to new instrumentals, kinds of music, and melodies. These are my favorite artists from around the world who offer truly unique talents.

    Shakira Realized Ex Allegedly Cheated Due to Jam Jar, Referenced in Music Video with Head in Fridge

    Shakira fans believe the singer realized her ex Gerard Pique was cheating on her when she returned to their home from touring to find an empty jar of strawberry jam. She eats strawberry jam, but her husband and kids reportedly do not like it. The Columbian singer also seemingly referenced the incriminating jam in a music video she released around the time of their split last year that shows the disembodied head of her collaborator on the song “Te Felicito” inside a refrigerator that she opens.

    Should People Gatekeep Music?

    Gaslight, gatekeep, girl boss. It’s all fun and games until someone actually does either of the two formers. While it is perfectly fine to joke about gatekeeping things like music (the act of preventing general access to something or withholding it to prevent it from becoming mainstream or popular), in practice, it can actually be a toxic and harmful thing to do. Gatekeeping music from mainstream audiences can be harmful to musicians, listeners, and society as a whole, because of the dangerous mentalities and limiting experiences and worldviews it promotes.

    How the TikTok Algorithm can Help Independent Artists

    TikTok is one of today’s most popular social media apps, and new artists are finding in it a more organic way to promote their art while also growing their fanbase.
