Kanye West’s Backstage Meltdown at “SNL” Was Caught on Tape
There were rumors Kanye West had a meltdown backstage before “Saturday Night Live” this past weekend. And now, there’s audio. It’s pretty typical Kanye. Apparently he had some shiny flooring for his performance, but the stage lights were reflecting off it and messing up a video wall behind him. So stage hands had to remove it. And Kanye flipped. In addition to whining like a baby and threatening not to perform, he also calls Taylor Swift a “fake ass,” then elevates himself above some pretty important people. He says, quote, “By 50 percent, Stanley Kubrick, Picasso, Apostle Paul, [effing] Picasso and Escobar. By 50 percent more influential than any other human being. Don’t [eff] with me. Don’t [eff] with me. Don’t [eff] with me. By 50 percent dead or alive, by 50 percent for the next 1,000 years. Stanley Kubrick, ‘Ye.” A source says he also called the “SNL” staffers, quote, “White mother[effers],” but his rep denies it. And Lorne Michaels reportedly had to talk Kanye down off his ledge so he would stay and do the show. (Listen to the UNCENSORED audio below.) Get more here.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Stalker Of 17 Years Found Not Guilty
Gwyneth Paltrow got some seriously bad news, the man who’s been stalking her and her family for 17 years was found not guilty. Gwyneth took the stand to testify against Dante Soiu, saying he sent her over 66 letters over the years containing death threats as well as threats of a “sexual nature.” He would also include porn, sex toys, and pictures of sex acts he “planned to perform with her.” He also threatened to use a scalpel “to cut out sin” from her body and would often suggest that Paltrow “die” for Christ. Somehow these jurors not only found Soiu not guilty! They also didn’t recommend that he receive psychiatric treatment for his obsession with the actress! Sixteen years ago when he faced charges the first time, he received court-ordered psychiatric treatment. We can’t figure out why this jury would reach this conclusion, the man is clearly deranged. Hang in there Gywneth, hopefully justice will be served, eventually. Get more here.
