SNL's Lorne Michaels Breaks Silence on Kanye West's Backstage Outburst

Who could forget hearing Kanye West‘s infamous leaked backstage rant right before his Saturday Night Live performance last month where he found out his set had been dismantled.

“Look at that s–t. They took my f–kin’ stage off SNL without asking me and now I’m bummed,” the 38-year-old entertainer could be heard saying. “Now I ain’t gonna do this. We’re breaking the motherf–king Internet.”

Now, SNL‘s longtime producer Lorne Michaels is responding to the rant, saying, “That happened in his dressing room. Kanye‘s been on the show a lot of years, and it’s always different. He’s an artist, you know? A great artist.”

Lorne added to E! News, “When he did the 40th anniversary show—which I wanted him to be part of it—I had no idea what he was going to do, even 10 minutes before we went on the air. He arrived that day. But he just always delivers, and he’s Kanye.”

    To be fair, and I have no love for Kanye, that set look horrendous. It was so bad that I thought Kanye’s performance was one of the skits.
