Kanye West APOLOGISES to Billboard Music Award viewers for “seriously misrepresented” performance.

Kim Kardashian’s husband left viewers disappointed with his All Day performance after producers were forced to bleep him out continually – leaving up to 30 seconds of silence at a time for those watching at home. A statement released by the rapper’s publicist reads: “Non-profane lyrics such as ‘with my leather black jeans on’ were muted for over 30-second intervals.

His rep Tracy Nguyen Romulus has now released a statement saying, “It’s ridiculous that in 2015, unwarranted censorship is something that artists still have to fight against,” but went on to say sorry for those who couldn’t enjoy it. “Kanye West was grossly over-censored at the Billboard Music Awards. As a result, his voice and performance were seriously misrepresented. “Although West was clearly set up to face elements beyond his control during the live broadcast, he would like to apologise to the television audience who were unable to enjoy the performance the way he envisioned.” The audience at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena booed as Kanye performed his songs All Day and Black Skinhead at Sunday’s ceremony, which was broadcast in the US on ABC. According to some reports, the rapper – who was joined onstage by Allan Kingdom and Theophilus London – was booed at the start and end of his performance.
