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

Kanye West has said he was “grossly over-censored” during his performance at the Billboard Music Awards. The 37-year-old rapper, who has won 21 Grammy Awards in his career, closed out the ceremony by performing his songs All Day and Black Skinhead with onstage guests Theophilus London and Allan Kingdom.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. 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 apologize to the television audience who were unable to enjoy the performance the way he envisioned.” Meanwhile, the ‘FourFiveSeconds’ hitmaker recently revealed he was changing his upcoming record’s name from ‘So Help Me God’ to ‘SWISH’, but has not yet announced when fans can expect to hear the LP.

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.
