Kanye may eject a fan, but would he eject FANTINE? #wordplay
A new video starring Kanye West has set the blogosphere ablaze, and no, it doesn't feature the rapper simulating motorcycle sex with Kim Kardashian -- this time. In the clip, Kanye is seen throwing a female heckler out of his Yeezus Tour stop in San Antonio, Texas, on Sunday.
Now, we don't know whether it was because the "Bound 2" rapper was upset about a perceived Grammy nominations snub for Yeezus or it was because said heckler was actually that annoying. (OUR MONEY'S ON NO. 2, FYI.) But one thing is clear: Kanye sounded a LOT like Patti LuPone.
Yes, Patti LuPone.
The legendary two-time Tony Award-winning stage actress is known for a ballsy "GTFO!" moment of her own. During one particular 2009 performance of the Broadway revival of "Gypsy" starring Ms. LuPone, one audience member would not stop taking pictures. Well, let's just say that Patti LET HIM HAVE IT -- just like Mr. West.
This is, like, the most amazing Venn diagram ever. Who would've thought that the worlds of Kanye West and Patti LuPone would ever intersect, much less on the grounds of "diva-licious throwdowns"???? That's why we thought it'd be fun to play a little game we like to call "Who Said It: Kanye West Or Patti LuPone?" using quotes from their audience-ejecting rants. The answers are at the bottom, but no peeking!
1.) What if they're professional photographers from Vogue?
2.) A comedian, eh? What about a... comedienne?
3.) ...THIS COULD BE ANYONE.
Continue playing "Who Said It: Kanye West Or Patti LuPone?" and watch Kanye kick out the Yeezus Tour heckler after the jump.
4.) Hurry up with my damn croissants, PLEASE!
5.) Why, I'm John, and I'm pretty OK and also -- WAAAAAIT STAHP! This is about who YOU are!
7.) We'd hate to be that person right now.
8.) OK, this one's a freebie.
ANSWERS: 1.) Patti, 2.) Kanye, 3.) Kanye, 4.) Patti, 5.) Patti, 6.) Kanye, 7.) Patti, 8.) COME ON.
