The follow-up to 'Yeezus' has been over two years in the making, and one fan decided to ask President Obama to use his executive powers to force Kanye to release it.
Barack Obama will not be using his presidential powers to order Kanye West to release his long-awaited new album – despite a petition lobbying the White House to do so achieving over 100,000 signatures, according to Billboard.
Kanye hasn’t released a single in over five months, since he dropped a taster for his upcoming seventh album Swish called ‘All Day’ back on March 2nd, and the wait proved to be too much for one fan who started a petition on the White House’s ‘We The People’ website on Wednesday (August 12th) which quickly gained the requisite amount of signatures within a day to force the President to respond to it.

The rapper shares some tips on how his former family member can get his life back
In case anyone was left unaware, Kanye West has got a pretty good deal going for himself. Husband to a always well-dressed woman, father to an equally always well-dressed (and very cute) daughter with a pretty impressive music career and a sense of style all of his own - he’s got a good life.

Noel was surprised by how much he enjoyed the first half an hour of Kanye's Glastonbury set.
One of the most forthright men in the music industry gave his opinion on another in a new interview – and the result was rather surprising. Despite not being a hip-hop aficionado, Noel Gallagher has given his reaction to Kanye West’s much-discussed Glastonbury headline set, describing his performance as “f***ing amazing” – for about half an hour.
The former Oasis songwriter memorably looked a bit silly back in 2008 when he dismissed Jay-Z’s booking – the first ever hip-hop headliner at Glastonbury – only for the rapper to put in a blinding performance. Now, while Kanye has proved rather more divisive, Gallagher admits that he was initially impressed, though he eventually lost interest through not being a fan of the genre.

The unexpected interloper on Kanye's Glastonbury stage has taken to social media to explain his actions - he did it for Taylor Swift!
The stage invader who interrupted Kanye West’s headline set at Glastonbury at the weekend has finally broken his silence. As you probably already know, the perpetrator was English comedian Simon Brodkin, masquerading as his on-stage persona Lee Nelson.
Brodkin, who has wrote and performed in the comedy series ‘Lee Nelson’s Well Good Show for two seasons on BBC Three from 2010 to 2011, took to Twitter to post a picture of himself wearing a self-made ‘Lee-zus’ T-shirt and holding a fake microphone, standing next to a slightly perturbed Kanye during ‘Black Skinhead’.
This all went on for fewer than 10 seconds, before Brodkin was quickly intercepted by a security guard and dragged from the stage. While Kanye took it in his stride, he was distracted enough to quickly re-start the song before moving on.

One audience member’s cry for attention during Kanye’s Glasto performance has been condemned by fans as misogynistic and disgusting.
A Glastonbury audience member has been criticised online for flying a flag showing a still from Kim Kardashian’s sex tape during Kanye West’s headlining set. Kardashian, who is four months pregnant, attended her husband’s Pyramid Stage set at the British festival on Saturday night and later called it the ‘craziest show ever’ on twitter.

The flag showed a still from the tape, which featured Kardashian and her former partner Ray-J and was leaked without the reality star’s consent in 2007. The flag also had the words “Get Down, Girl, Get Head Get Down,” written across it.
Unsurprisingly Kanye West's headline set at Glastonbury last night has divided internet opinion.
Last night US rapper Kanye West headlined Glastonbury, Britain’s most iconic music festival, in a decision which was controversial even by standards set in recent years (remember all those Metallica nay sayers?). But now that it’s all over, just what did the Glastonbury audience make of Yezzus on the Pyramid stage?

With a stage set which featured nothing more than a ceiling made up of a few hundred lightbulbs, Kanye West took on Glastonbury solo, opening up with the very appropriate ‘Stronger’. But it wasn’t long until some drama went down, as midway through the third song Kanye fell victim to a stage invader, later identified as comedian Lee Nelson.
Kanye's entourage is so massive that a special viewing platform has been built to accommodate them.
With a matter of hours to go before he takes to the stage for his controversial Glastonbury headline show on Saturday night, it seems as if Kanye West is already making his presence felt. He’s bringing such a large entourage to the festival that other bands’ guestlists have had to be restricted.
British indie stars The Maccabees stated to BBC Radio 1’s Newsbeat that they “were told we only had one guest each this time,” according to the band’s guitarist Felix White. “I've not got that many other friends who want to come, but I'm just making a point!”

The study found there had been three music revolutions since the 1950s.
A study by the University of London and Imperial College has concluded that the emergence of hip hop has had the biggest impact on the charts of any genre since the 1950s. The study also found that the importance of The Beatles may have been overstated, suggesting that the fab five did not spark a musical revolution.
The Beatles may not have been that revolutionary
The study found there were three musical revolutions on the charts, the first being in 1964 with the rise of rock and roll bands such as The Beatles. The second was in the mid 80s with the use of synthesisers and drum machines, while the third came in 1991 when rap and hip-hop infiltrated the mainstream charts.

Back to Kanye: “If there was actually an Illuminati, it would be more like the energy companies. Not celebrities that gave their life to music and who are pinpointed as decoys for people who really run the world,” he wrote.
