Kanye West Under Fire for Wedding Gig


Kanye West is catching heat for performing for the President of Kazakhstan who is notorious for his poor human rights record and intolerance for dissent...

Kanye West was paid $3 million to perform at the wedding reception of President Nursultan Nazarbayev's grandson over the weekend.

Other artists, including Sting, have canceled gigs in Kazakhstan after Human Rights Watch slammed the oil rich republic for its bloody crack down on striking oil workers.

Instagram videos of Kanye's performance have popped up online showing wedding revelers largely ignoring his show.

Who tells someone not to earn legal money? In this world, where babies are denied food stamps, while corporations get the tax breaks and cash back from the mouths of children.

GTFO with that BS.

Kanye, get your dollars because these fools telling you not to take it, are begging for crumbs from their day jobs. Notice them fools walking away with empty pockets and emptier minds.

Fuck western jew driven propaganda about other countries human right records, when your shit is just as fucked as the next. get that money before these hoes start ww3 in the mid east with the same liex the told about Iraq. ole moose face kerry and his war mongering cronies for profits is at it again. Spirit says America should not get involved and it will blow over quickly, if on the other hand they engage, Russia, Germany, China, Spain! Italy and the entire middle east including them shit starters in Israel will be engulfed in war, and it will be brought to American soil. They better heed the word of spirit and stay their asses out of other peoples fuckeries. A lot of backdoor secret deals between the jews, russia, them hoes in london and china to fuck america up. The destruction of this country is from within of their most trusted allies, who give false info to keep this country in baseless wars to weaken her for the eventual chinese invasion of a period of 3 years, till a massive earthquake split china in half killing half the population. Chinese soldiers cant wait to lock these bitch down with marshal law.

For those of you who see no problem with this, tell that to your friends and relatives who are fighting in these land grabs and invasions across the globe right now.

Kanye and other greedy celebrities doing this shit are slapping our soldiers in the face with their roles of dirty money.

@11:42 no hunty your congressman and senate keep slapping our soldiers in the face, by keep sending the into harms way, under the flase flag of democracy, while only paying them a punk ass salary. We can pay entertainers including sports jocks, ridiculous sums of money, but not our soldiers, firefighters, teachers, police officers, healthcare workers including home health aids who do backbreaking, work on paltry salaries. chile stop. Patriotism is always the last refuge of a scoundrel.

@11:57

I know all that. And I'm hardly what you would call patriotic.

These idiots talking about "get money" don't realize that Kanye and other celebs have been doing this shit all along. Going over to these places where our soldiers are put in harm's way BY CONGRESS, making millions of $$$ for just showing their face at some dictator's party, and lining their own pockets.

It's an insult to the soldiers, period. And like I said, I am the last person anybody would call patriotic, so miss me with the bullshit.

@12:09 I am the one that typed that get money, I hate kangays overrated, mediocre ass, but why should him and any celeb turn down money because of the fuckeries of their government. All them hoes in Congress stay lining their pockets off us, birth certificate being tradec on wall street, private prison run by the uber wealthy is a major stock, false flag fuckeries like sandyhook, trayvon vs zimmerman designed to instigate race wars and keep the pot boiling, when that didn't work because enough of us are awake, here come the ole ww2 vet killed by them black kids, the Australian student killed by borec black teenagers *eye roll* the recent boston marathon false flag fuckeries. we got dictators here too, only the making off us hand over fist. Soldiers need to signing up for the military who don't give a flying fuck about them and their families.

@12:09 besides don't be so quick to believe everything you government tells you. Your government wag the dog on everything. No real news is reported on the media outlets. unless you live in these countries and witness these atrocities yourself, I would not be so quick your false flag indoctrination. These are the same muthafukkas that swore up and down Saddam had WMD and plunged thiscoucountry in a decades old war with not only Iraq but Afghanistan, now the same fuckery with Syria.

When you have a kid to support, international affairs are the least of your concern....especially when 3 million is on the table........the u.s. soldiers are given the best benefits in the world, if they make it home alive with their right frame of mind..#dd214 # free college education for you and ur seeds # va home loan up to 500k # benefit check

I know the government gets up to endless fuckery on the daily, but the fact remains that celebrities like Kanye make their profits off US. If they can't even be respectful enough of these political and international situations, then I can't be bothered to spend my money on these greedy, ignorant assholes.

Some people get their panties in a twist over Kanye and other black celebs and athletes dating and marrying white women, and say they refuse to support these fools over that.. well, I stand by my opinion not to support celebs who are ignorant about world affairs and will do business with dictators and other foreign leaders who are known for torturing and killing their own people for no reason.

@Diana

Isn't Kanye already worth $50 million? Its not like he's going broke, or can't afford to set aside money for his daughter's future right now.

In any case, he PLANNED this baby. He probably spent more than $3 million on fertility treatments.

We need to stop thinking with a broke ass mentality.

Turkmenistan is known as one of the "world's most repressive countries," according to Human Rights Watch. The former Soviet bloc country is regularly criticized for its poor treatment of women, the condition of its prisons as well as the intimidation of journalists.

But J-Lo didn't know any of that, and if she had, says her rep, she wouldn't have accepted $1.5 million for the pleasure of singing to its head of state.

Alas, it's not the first time Jenny from the block has committed such a faux pas.

In the past, she has performed for similarly generous sums of money for a controversial Uzbek businessman, according to the Guardian, as well as Azeri oligarch Telman Ismailov.

Not the greatest track record, to be sure. But it appears she is in good company.

1) BEYONCE

Beyonce performed for late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, Reuters reported. She sang for the family and its entourage at a private party on the Caribbean island of St. Barts in 2009. After being roundly criticized, she said she would donate the money from the party to a charity working in Haiti.

2) MARIAH CAREY

Mariah Carey also performed for the Gaddafi clan and said she felt "horrible and embarrassed" afterwards, according to Reuters. She also pledged to donate proceeds to charity.

3) NELLY FURTADO

Singer Nelly Furtado gave a private concert for the Gaddafi clan in 2007, according to the BBC. She also said she would donate the $1 million she made from her efforts to charity.

4) SHARON STONE

Actress Sharon Stone was notoriously present at Russian President Vladimir Putin's rendition of "Blueberry Hill." In this video below you can also spot Goldie Hawn, Kurt Russell and Gerard Depardieu.

5) NAOMI CAMPBELL

Let's not forget Naomi Campbell, who after a 1997 dinner at Nelson Mandela's home in South Africa, allegedly accepted the gift of a "blood diamond" from former Liberian President Charles Taylor. The supermodel later testified at Taylor's war crimes tribunal in 2010. Campbell told the International Criminal Court that she had received a gift of “dirty-looking” raw diamonds from unknown men, assumed to have been sent by Taylor.

6) DENNIS RODMAN

Perhaps the most recent celebrity other than Jennifer Lopez to make a splash cozying up to a strongman was Dennis Rodman, who became the first American to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un when he made a surprise visit there in February.

7) HILARY SWANK

Actress Hilary Swank attended the birthday party of Ramzan Kadyrov, the Chechen leader accused of torture, abductions and killings. At a party in October 2011, Swank reportedly said she had been taken by the Chechen government's "passion to make peace and to make something beautiful," though she later apologized for doing so.

8) STING

Here's someone who's not sorry, however: Sting. In 2009, the British popstar performed for the daughter of the Uzbek president, Islam Karimov. Unlike J-Lo, he had done his homework. He said at the time he was well aware of Karimov's reputation, and that he felt his performance had been justified.

“I am well aware of the Uzbek president’s appalling reputation in the field of human rights as well as the environment," he said, according to the Telegraph.

"I made the decision to play there in spite of that," Sting continued. "I have come to believe that cultural boycotts are not only pointless gestures, they are counter-productive, where proscribed states are further robbed of the open commerce of ideas and art and as a result become even more closed, paranoid and insular.”

Americans are so ignorant. They sit in their corner of the world and think high and mighty of themselves. They dont bother learning abt other people in the world because they think everything they need to see and learn is available right before them. Funny people with even smaller minds.

Libya - not on board w/ NWO unified banking, thus the vilification and murder of Khaddafi. Iran and Syria also have their own central banks this explains the propaganda and constant war threats. US wants control of Syrian oil pipelines, as well. I believe N. Korea also maintains it's own central bank. Kazakhstan is a former Russian principality, when Russia was unified it had a diverse population that also spoke many different languages.

Books are your friends.

When most of these Baphomet loving, black celebs worship money, whether they need it or not. This is what they do. Birds of a feather, flock together, so their fans won't see a problem with this either. Matter of fact, his fans will be saying..."Get dat money, Ye!"
