Kanye West Throws Subliminal Shots at Amber Rose
West, who performed a 23-song set, didn’t miss the opportunity to address the fact that his ex was also in attendance, but to support her new boyfriend, rapper Wiz Khalifa. Ironically, Khalifa performed ahead of West earlier in the day, and according to reports, the two had a post-show verbal altercation post.
During his performance of the single ‘Stronger,’ off his ‘Graduation’ album, ‘Ye switched up the lyrics to include his relationship with Rose. Instead of saying, “I’d do anything for a blonde dyke, and she’ll do anything for the limelight,” he rapped, “I did anything for a blonde dyke, and she’ll do anything for the limelight.”
Without missing a beat, the Chicago MC continued on after the lyric change, rocking thousands of excited fans through a timeline of his hits, including ‘Through the Wire,’ ‘Gold Digger’ and ‘Runaway.’
Although West has remained mum about his ex’s new relationship, Rose and Khalifa have just recently begun to speak up about their love. Both natives of Pennsylvania, the lovebirds have been spending lots of time together while the ‘Black and Yellow’ rapper embarks on a national tour promoting his major label debut, ‘Rolling Papers.’
Aside from his personal drama, West’s appearance at the festival seems to have put him back in a positive light with the mainstream media, receiving rave reviews across the board for his performance. The 33-year-old also dedicated the show to his late mother, Dr. Donda West, who died of complications following plastic surgery in 2007. Expressing his sentiment for the loss, West called the three-day musical event “the most important festival to me since my mama passed.”
