According to NecoleBitchie.com this is how the night went down:
Last night, Kanye West was in amazing spirits as he hosted a listening party for his new album, Yeezus on the loading dock of Milk Studios in New York City. Despite the last minute invites that were sent out hours beforehand, the event was packed out with media folks who were itching for a real taste of the new album, and celeb guests that included Jay-Z, Beyonce, Busta Rhymes, Timbaland, Tyson Chandler, DJ Khaled and Theophilus London.
Here’s the skinny: The atmosphere was interesting. We were all crammed inside of an open loading dock where studio rentals are transported in and out of the studio. It was pretty neat to see visuals from his “Black Skinhead” and “New Slaves” being projected off of the building across the street. Since it was somewhat outside, you could literally hear the album blasting at astronomical levels throughout the whole meatpacking district.
Kanye cleared up that Yeezus title for anyone who thinks it’s blasphemy. He said, ‘I wanna explain something about the title Yeezus, simply put, West was my slave name and Yeezus is my god name.” On the track “I Am A God,” he also raps “Even though I’m a man of God. My whole life in the hands of God. See y’all better quit playing with God” and “I know he the most high, but I’m a close high.”
While chatting about the new project, Yeezy seemed very passionate about letting his music speak for itself as well as not being pressured into the confined box of what’s hot in music today. He said, “I gotta new strategy it’s called no strategy and I gotta way to sell more music, its called make better music.” He also added, “We didn’t give a f-ck about what nobody said from the outside looking in. We just wanted to make the best product possible and this is just the beginning of an entire new mentality about how to make music.”
TMZ reports 2 Chainz was robbed at gunpoint in San Francisco at about 4:30 p.m. on Sunday.
Surveillance video appears to show that the rapper, who had his wallet stolen, was the intended target, according to TMZ. His entourage reportedly “ran away from the incident like ‘cockroaches running from a flashlight.’” Police are currently looking for a suspect.
Bay Area news network KTVU reported 2 Chainz was robbed while outside of a local marijuana dispensary.
Ciara‘s performance at LA Pride did not go as planned last night … because she was served with legal papers right in the middle of her show!
As TMZ first reported … The Factory, a popular West Hollywood club, sued the singer for bailing on a performance scheduled for Friday night. Ciara’s people maintain they informed the club she could not be there, but they continued to promote her appearance anyway.
Since the club people knew exactly where Ciara was going to be Saturday night, they sent their process server right up to the stage to hand her the papers … which she quickly tossed back.
We reached out to Ciara’s rep to see what became of the papers. So far, no word
Miguel’s sweet moves might come back to kick him in the BANK… According to TMZ the girl (Shah) who experienced the Miguel drop-kicked is planning to sue!
Shah’s lawyer tells TMZ:
“Some of the difficulties she’s experiencing are cognitive in nature and lead to suspicion of a neurological head injury.”
Her lawyer further says that the fan didn’t receive proper medical attention the night of the kick, where she was videotaped holding an ice pack on her arm, not head. He says organizers gave Shah the ice pack after the performance, but adds she should have been rushed to the hospital.
Shah is now awaiting results from a neurologist, which should be in next week, and then she will decide what her next legal step will be.
