Despite his five nominees, including the Donda album, the rapper, Kanye West, 44, won’t perform in the 64th Grammy Awards since he was banned from the event. The decision seems that was taken because of Ye’s “concerning online behavior”. According to Blast, the rapper’s team got a phone call conveying to him that his performance was ruled out from the show.
Rapper The Game stood by Ye’s side by expressing his disappointment via his Instagram account implying that the expulsion was an act of racism. He also mentioned that West meeting Trevor Noah, host of the Grammys this year, may create a further conflict. The Game also pointed out the questionable ban for Ye’s Instagram account for 24 hours.
Trevor Noah talked on The Daily Show, on March 15, about Kim Kardashian, Pete Davidson, and Kanye West’s “toxic” situation. “Over time, Kanye has become more belligerent in how he tries to get Kim back,” he said. “Some would say it was romantic,” he added.
Then he referred to Ye’s recent music video, where he appears to be holding Pete Davidson’s (chopped-off) head (Pete Davidson is the current Kim Kardashian’s relationship).
“I do understand that art can be therapy, I honestly do understand that, but I also understand that therapy can be therapy,” he continued. He subjoined that even though Kim Kardashian is a powerful, famous woman, she is also a woman saying to her ex: “Please, leave me alone,” and she does not deserve being harassed.
But notwithstanding Trevor Noah and Kanye West had a dispute on social media, Noah doesn’t seem to have interfere with the council to expand Kanye.
