Thom Yorke, Chris Brown, O.J. Comments Cut From Kanye Storytellers

By Scott Lapatine / February 26, 2009

You’ve gotten a glimpse at “Stronger,” but what really went down at Kanye’s VH1 concert will require some imagination. “During the taping, according to a Reuters reporter, West was aggrieved that Radiohead singer Thom Yorke had allegedly snubbed him backstage at the Grammys five days earlier. That hurt, West told the audience, because he idolizes the British band. ‘So when he performed at the Grammys, I sat the fuck down,’ West said.” Classic Kanye, but it apparently won’t make the broadcast Saturday. Also edited out: “Can’t we give Chris [Brown] a break? … I know I make mistakes in life.” And “O.J. Simpson, amazing. Is he not? What he did, when he did, what he did. Was he not amazing though?” Amazing. More cutting room floor bon mots at Reuters (HT Daily Swarm).
