Kanye West Performs In Paris, Breaks Down During ‘Hey Mama’

returned to the stage in Paris, France on Saturday night (November 17) a week after the death of his mother Donda, breaking down near the end of the more than 60-minute performance when attempting to sing ‘Hey Mama’. Kanye told a sold-out crowd at Le Zénith, “this song is for my mother….” and could get no further. An attendee told People magazine, “He just cracked. He was at the end of his concert and had just started to dedicate the song and then he just lost it completely.” Le Parisien journalist Meddy Magloire said, “He said the word, ‘Mother’ and just couldn’t go any further. A back-up singer, the DJ and a guitar player came over to console him. It looked like he might collapse. He just couldn’t continue. He just stood there in a spotlight, crying while the band continued playing.” Read more.Watch footage below the fold.
