West's Storytellers Show Cut Down

Subscribe to Kanye West alerts

TV producers have been forced to heavily edit a forthcoming Kanye West documentary after the rapper allegedly ranted about Radiohead and defended embattled singer Chris Brown during filming.
The outspoken rapper was especially candid while recording an episode of the VH1 show Storytellers - which features artists discussing the meaning behind their songs - in Los Angeles on 13 February (09).
He was said to have told the audience he was "hurt" when Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke supposedly snubbed him at this year's (09) Grammy Awards.
West explained: "So when he (Yorke) performed at the Grammys, I sat the f**k down."
He is also alleged to have discussed Brown, referring to his alleged fight with Rihanna, asking the crowd: "Can't we give Chris a break? I know I make mistakes in life."
But the controversial remarks have been axed - with producers insisting there wasn't enough time in the 90-minute show to broadcast all the rapper's comments.
Executive producer Bill Flanagan says, "A lot of the stories that Kanye told went long. I tried to get the essence of his comments."
