Kanye West Breaks Down

Kanyeandmother Little more than a week after his mother Donda's death during a botched plastic surgery procedure, Kanye West dissolved into tears on stage while attempting to sing his song "Hey Mama" at a concert in Paris last night.

Full details and the heartbreaking video after the jump...

TMZ reports:

...Kanye can be seen holding his hands over his face and just standing in the middle of the stage as the band began to play the song. Eventually a few band members came to console him. The crowd can be heard chanting his name over and over again.

West left the stage, but eventually returned to perform the song "Stronger" with the audience yelling out their support. He is expected to return to the U.S. for his mother's funeral, taking place on Tuesday in Oklahoma City.

Whatever you may think of West, you have to feel for the guy in this situation. Our thoughts are with Kanye and the rest of his family in this difficult time.

I agree with you completely. I think he's an arrogant ass but you gotta feel bad for him here. That's tough for anyone to lose a parent but then to have to get up and perform and make other people feel good has got to be difficult at best. Prayers to their family.


You know how my heart has a little spot marked Kanye anyway, but I really feel for him right now. What an awful thing to go through under any circumstances, but especially with a lot of the world watching, you know?
