While Sunday’s Made in America Los Angeles Festival had no shortage of stars and star-making performances from rockers like Weezer and John Mayer and the up-and-coming Chance The Rapper, no one ended up shining nearly as bright as Kanye West. And no one stole the show like Beyonce and Jay Z who were dancing and kissing during Kanye’s set, RumorFix reports from the festival.
With their PDA, Jay Z — who is the founder of the Made in America festival — and Beyonce quickly dispelled rumors that they are having marital problems.
The couple attended the event to see their buddy Kanye close out the LA festival after performing the previous night in Philadelphia.
His set was full of studded masks, neon lights and typical Kanye rants. He performed hits like “All of the Lights” and “Runaway” to songs from his last album, Yeezus. He took to the audience to talk about the enslavement of society.
“If anyone ever questions me on anything, that’s really my reason to anything, ‘might as well.’ People be scared as hell but my perspective be like, ‘I might as well,’” he said. “It’s really kind of simple, it’s basically like society’s been set up to control you, to enslave you … the basic landscape and everything. If people ask me my opinion, there’s two opinions you can give — the one that’s practiced with you and your publicist, or the one that you feel at the time, that’s coming from a positive place … I’m living my dream out with my wife and my family, everything seems to have worked itself out quite lovely.”
While it was hard to not take your eyes off West, between songs, RumorFix spotted a clan of Kardashians walking up the side stairs to watch West from backstage. Khloe Kardashian was photographed backstage.
We wonder if the Kardashians hung out with Jay Z and Beyonce, who arrived at the festival in time to see John Mayer and Kanye.
The festival’s first LA outing was hosted in downtown Los Angeles with an estimated audience of 26,000 — the first concert event of its kind to be hosted there.
