Re: Kanye’s performance on SNL.
Let’s get the bad out first. I think it’s weak that Ye censored himself by changing his “Fuck the cast of SNL” line during his performance of Power. I mean, Cobain (played intro Rape Me), Sinead O’Connor (Pope incident) and Rage Against the Machine (ripped flags) didn’t give a crap about offending SNL and NBC. So come on Ye!
But now the good. The performance itself.. wow.
I use hyperbole alot but I don’t think it’d be the case by calling this the most visually impressive performance in the history of SNL. The Sword of Damocles reference and the red-on-white color scheme (Air Jordans?) was hot.
