Rapper Kanye West has spoken out about his strained relationship with both Beyonce and Jay Z at a recent gig in Sacramento. West has made something of a habit of using the stage to voice his opinions on politics, music and his personal life, during the course of his current ‘Saint Pablo’ tour.
In another bizarre, muddled and often incomprehensible on stage rant, West told fans about rumour that Beyonce had refused to perform at the VMA’s, unless her music video beat both West’s ‘Famous’ and Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’.
West told fans: “Beyoncé, I was hurt! ‘Cause I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me, and over ‘Hotline Bling.’”
“In my opinion — now, don’t go tryin’ to diss Beyoncé, she is great. Taylor Swift is great,” “We are all great people, we are all equal. But sometimes, we be playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are — just to win. Fuck winning! Fuck looking cool! Fuck looking cool! Fuck being cool! Fuck all that!”

The outspoken artist went on to address some of his recent issues with Beyonce’s husband Jay Z. West and Jay Z had been long term friends however, earlier in the ‘Saint Pablo’ tour, West accused Jay Z of distancing himself from both West and his wife Kim Kardashian, following the latter’s gunpoint robbery.
West said of Jay Z: “I’ve been sent here to give y’all my truth — even at the risk of my own life, even at the risk of my own success, my own career,” he said.
“I’ve been sent here to give y’all the truth. Jay Z, call me, bruh! You still ain’t call me! Jay Z, call me! Jay Z, I know you got killers, please don’t send them at my head. Just call me! Talk to me like a man!”
