Someone please remind Kanye he's not Daft Punk.

West scoffed at Coachella organizers for hindering his creative vision over portable toilets, Billboard reports.

I don't really like Kanye West as an artist, and his personal conduct is actively awful, so let's just imagine an abstraction of the perfect performer at one of these events.

I would rather have an open toilet than that artist. If the venue has 10,000,000 people, there should be 10,000,008 toilets there for them. More toilets = Better event. It don't matter what the event is. Don't EVER reduce the number of toilets.

Now bring it back to Kanye... he's not worth a single port-a-potty and he's independently wealthy. If he wants a dome, let him build it himself on his own property at his own concert. If he wants to play at cochella, let him use their facilities, including the port-a-potties he's not replacing.

Imagine going to a line waiting for a port-o-potty and asking people at the back who they would cancel in order to make it shorter.

Bathroom line too long? Go poop in the dome.

Kanye pull out? Heard none of the women in his life.

What with these jerks and building stuff?
 
2019-01-12 10:42:41 PM  
You would have to pay me a tidy sum to attend Coachella this year.
 
2019-01-12 10:48:51 PM  
It just occurred to me, this is Kanye's wall.
I'll be surprised if he doesn't come out with some ridiculous tweet about making Coachella great again, or some such nonsense...

He had so much bipartisan agreement on that he should have weaponized it.

"Heey, this next budget raises the top income tax bracket to 70%!"
"But it also includes a House resolution to declare Kanye West a jackass."
"Well shiat, guess we're voting Aye."

That whole "radius clause" for Justin Timberlake is crazy. What's that all about?

Basically any artist that wants to play Coachella can't play any other venue for five months within a certain area, southern California.

Here's a rundown:

here's your dome, kanye
 
2019-01-12 11:06:43 PM  
My mistake, the artists can't play anywhere else between December 15 to May 1, that's anywhere in the Continental US, not certain if it includes Canada
 
2019-01-12 11:07:13 PM  
Whatever happens at that line of portajohns is bound to be a better show than anything Kanye could come up with.
 
2019-01-12 11:16:18 PM  
I bet they got Justin Timberlake for a dime. His latest tour has been piss-poor ticket sales.

That's crazy. They should not wield that much power.

I went to Coachella once. Back in 2001. Never again.

kanye is looking for firstclassella, not coachella
 
2019-01-12 11:25:54 PM  
That settles it. I'm definitely not going this year.
 
2019-01-12 11:26:00 PM  
The radius clause is new to me and seems bogus.

Here's a related article:

Seems negotiable with the right lawyer.

Two things I'll gladly not experience in my lifetime.

When I really gotta go, there's about five people one earth I wouldn't axe to get to the toilet.

As someone who grew up in Coachella Valley, it continually blows my mind that place has become host to a yearly major outdoor concert.  Coachella Valley is right next to Death Valley, and is actually slightly hotter and drier -- it's only populated because they've been able to reroute some of the Colorado River into it to provide water.  Being outdoors in Coachella is pure misery, year round.  It's like hanging out in a very brightly lit dehydrator.  That place is literally the Devil's armpit.  I left the first chance I got, just so I could enjoy life in a place where it is occasionally less than 95 degrees.

Ya know, I have been seeing a bunch of references to Kanyo West for a few years and have no idea who the fark the tiny little maggot is.  I know he feels like he's some major shiat, but I don't think I've ever heard or read anything he has done.

Given that he's a little midget, is he a jockey or something?  Did people toss him or something?  Is it that insignificant, worthless people with no taste or sense somehow think he's special?

Unless you plan your vacations around it or plan on world touring, why would you ever willingly play there? The privilege? For what sounds like a shiatastic venue?

I can finally tell people that i'm boycotting Coachella because of Important Reasons and not because I'm nearly 50 and have literally no interest.
 
2019-01-13 05:48:56 AM  
To be fair, someday I would like to scoff at someone for hindering my creative vision over public toilets. Just once. I'd probably apologize afterward, unless they were WRONG.

What a stupendous ego this guy has! Just keep being the skidmark world knows you are Kanye. Can we collectively forget this guy and his wife? And her whole family? Please?

It's not unusual for festivals to contain such clauses, but they're normally not so restrictive.

Surprised no one's started a Death Watch for Kanye yet.
 
2019-01-13 02:29:30 PM  
I don't understand why he's even famous.

He married up.

Tame Impala and Childish Gambino are a huge step up from Timberlake and Kanye anyway.
 
2019-01-13 04:36:46 PM  
I was wonderin why I am find it hard to see kayne west growing old and came to the conclusion that he already appears senile.


/what happened to all the accountss that defended kanye? Were they all bought out by elon musk?
 
2019-01-14 06:45:20 AM  
Portable toilets are more important, more desirable than Kanye.
 
2019-01-14 11:04:44 AM  
It couldn't have been that expensive...
