Kanye West was not a happy camper while getting ready for his Saturday Night Live appearance this past weekend. According to Page Six, Kanye got upset when he found out the SNL crew cut the stage size that would be available for his performances during the show, without any advance notice. That’s when he lost it.
A source told Billboard Magazine, “he did not yell at SNL staff. This audio was secretly recorded while he was venting his frustration in a private moment with his team. He found out his stage design was changed and taken apart under the direction of the show’s lighting director without anyone’s approval. He had spent an entire day rehearsing and a lot of hard work into the performance. Dramatic set changes were made 30 minutes before going live. It should be understandable why he was upset after being completely blindsided.”
The source continued saying, “Kanye was seen hugging Lorne Michaels just before the goodnights and he stayed afterwards to chat with the staff and the cast, and thanked the producers on his way out the door.”
