Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West stole the show last night (May 15) in New York City where he performed new music and had some dicey words for paparazzi following his embarassing pole accident last week.
According to reports, Mr. West sang a special tune to his pregnant girlfriend Kim Kardashian at the Adult Swim Upfront Party Wednesday evening.
Ahead of his performance on this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” season finale, Kanye West took the stage at the Adult Swim Upfront Party at Roseland Ballroom in New York City on Wednesday. The G.O.O.D. Music chief stood in front of a giant pyramid and flashing lights while performing his hits and new material off his upcoming album. He debuted an Auto-Tuned song called “Awesome,” where he sings about the special lady in his life (aka Kim Kardashian). “I’d rather do nothing with you than something new with somebody new,” sang ‘Ye as his baby mama sat in the audience.

Ye also used last night as a perfect opportunity to speak out on paps.
“It’s so funny. Somebody asked me, ‘When you do SNL, are you going to do a skit about the paparazzi and sh*t. And like humanize yourself?’ I ain’t hear to apologize to no motherf*ckers man. It ain’t about me humanizing myself. At one point did I become un-human where I had to turn myself back. Or maybe I was demonized, or maybe I was treated inhumane and not human in that type of situation. I ain’t no motherf*ckin’ celebrity. I ain’t runnin’ for office. I ain’t kissin’ nobody’s motherf*ckin’ babies. I drop your baby and you motherf*ckers sue me and sh*t. I’m trying to make some music that inspires people to be the best that they can be. And I don’t want nobody else to ask anything of me! Don’t ask nothing else of me.” (Miss Info TV)
Last week, memorable footage of Yeezy walking into a street sign surfaced across the Internet.
Kim Kardashian’s maternal instincts are already kicking in! The seven-months-pregnant reality star, 32, was house-hunting with beau Kanye West in Bel-Air, Calif. on Friday, May 10, when the rapper suddenly walked straight into a street pole. Dressing her growing baby bump in a black lace cardigan paired with a side braid and chandelier earrings, the expectant mother immediately showed her nurturing side — going to the rapper’s side and kissing his forehead while he seemed to wince from the klutzy mishap.

Immediately following the accident, the Chicago native went off on nearby photographers.
An angry West clasped his hand to his head and bent over in pain. “You OK Kanye?” photographers can be heard asking, in footage of the incident. West briefly shouts at a photog to “stop taking f—ing pictures, man,” before it appeared that he calmed down and walked away.But this being Kanye West, after all, video recently surfaced showing the hothead stayed true to form and did launch into an expletive-filled tirade against another photographer, who meekly protested, “I just got here.” That photographer even tries to offer an olive branch, saying, “If you want me to leave, I’ll leave, Kanye.” (NY Post)
