Because his ego had a scheduling conflict, Kanye West has postposed the Australia leg of his Yeezus tour to work on a new album. Kanye is the only person I know who would willingly decide not to go to Australia. Great white sharks love it there.
Rap genius, self-proclaimed fashionista and the internet's favourite figure of fun, Kanye West, has decided to postpone his tour of Australia next month. Instead he will play in Australia in September, a tour which could have a silver lining for fans. Tour promoter Live Nation said Kanye changed the dates because he was busy finishing his next studio album. Their statement read: "Due to unexpected timing requirements to finish his highly anticipated new studio album, scheduled for a 2014 release, Kanye West regretfully announces the postponement of his upcoming tour dates in Australia." The current tour is to promote his worldwide chart-topping 2013 album Yeezus. Kanye's upcoming seventh studio album, due for release in mid-2014, will be produced by Rick Rubin (who also produced Yeezus) and A Tribe Called Quest founder and MC Q-Tip. The May postponement, while disappointing for many, will likely allow fans to see songs performed from both Yeezus and the as-yet-unnamed new record.
I honestly don't have a joke for this story, because I started doing Gym Jones and Crossfit at the same time this week and now I think I might be partially paralyzed. I've basically spent the last five minutes staring at the burrito I dropped on the floor. I want it. I want it so bad.
