(Newser) – Kanye West would apparently like to change his title to "epic ranter," if Saturday night's concert is anything to go by. As the Washington Post reports, West performed two songs at his show in Sacramento before halting abruptly, and airing his tender opinions on topics including but not limited to: Beyonce and the rigged MTV Video of the Year award, Jay Z, Hillary Clinton, the radio industry, Google, Facebook, and probably unicorns and fairy dust. "This ‘Saint Pablo’ tour is the most relevant [thing] happening," West said. "If your old a– keeps following old models, your a– is going to get Hillary Clintoned. You might not like it, but you need to hear it." He then stormed out of the show, which he started an hour and a half late. Fans were less than thrilled. "I spent $250," complained one concert-goer. "I might be a fan of his music, but I’m not a fan of his character." (Read more Kanye West stories.)
