Kanye West lit up The Brit Awards tonight with a debut performance of his new song “All Day”. Check it inside, plus Janelle Monae and more taking over the red carpet…
So…Kanye was tonight’s headliner at the 2015 Brit Awards at the O2 arena in London. And he had his entire crew of homies–including Virgil Abloh–on stage to rep for their hometowns and what they love…all day:
And, as usual, ‘Ye’s performance doesn’t come without controversy. He dropped the N-word tons of times throughout and it didn’t seem to get edited out on British TV.
Check out his hyped performance below that, by the way, came with an introduction from his wife Kim Kardashian:
And check out that Taylor Swift trying her damndest to dance on beat, per usual.
Over on the red carpet:
Janelle Monae kept it chic in a velvet printed black suit and her fave hat.
Lionel Richie hit the carpet with his girlfriend.
Rita ora looked jet lagged after flying in from LA after the Oscars, but this sheer gold number is gorgeous.
Singer Lianna La Havas rocked an intricate red gown for the occasion.
Singer FKA Twigs hit the carpet in her usual eclectic look before being spotted making out with boyfriend Robert Pattinson.
Right before tonight’s Awards, Kanye was spotted cutting up at the tasty chicken place Nando’s inside the O2!
Here’s what went down according to paparazzi sources: The rapper sat at a table with his entourage, and at first shunned curious fans, telling them, “I’m just a singer who wants to be left alone.” But it wasn’t long before embraced the attention and after he finished his dinner, he jumped up onto the food counter and yelled, “If we are gonna do this, let’s do it right!” before chanting “Yeezus” and encouraging the whole restaurant to join him.
Fellow diners got to their feet and joined in, but Kanye’s bodyguard hurried him out of the door after things got rowdy.
