“It is ridiculous that in 2015, unwarranted censorship is something that artists still have to fight against,” West says via statement.
Kanye West has released a statement to The Hollywood Reporter regarding his 2015 Billboard Music Awards performance.
Yeezy apologizes to his fans who watched on television that were unable to view his finale the way he intended.
“Kanye West was grossly over-censored at the Billboard Music Awards. Non-profane lyrics such as ‘with my leather black jeans on’ were muted for over 30 second intervals. As a result, his voice and performance were seriously misrepresented,” the statement reads.
