Kanye Breaks Down On Stage

11/18/2007 7:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West broke into tears last night while attempting to perform the song "Hey Mama" at a concert in Paris.

In a video posted on YouTube today, Kanye can be seen holding his hands over his face and just standing in the middle of the stage as the band began to play the song. Eventually a few band members came to console him. The crowd can be heard chanting his name over and over again.

West left the stage, but eventually returned to perform the song "Stronger" with the audience yelling out their support. He is expected to return to the U.S. for his mother's funeral, taking place on Tuesday in Oklahoma City.

I've never been able to stand Kanye, due to his massive egocentricity, but I do feel for him and I wouldn't wish, what happened to him on anyone. If anything it shows me he has a heart and that heart has been broken. I can't believe he's already back performing, but as we see, it's too soon. Like I said before I do not like his personality or ego, but I hope he finds meaning in his mothers passing and works through this.

For anyone mocking and making fun of him, you show yourselves to be worthless individuals. I don't care for his antics, but I also don't find satisfaction when someone's mother dies a senseless death, regardless on if I like the person or not. Be human, have empathy, and realize karma is a bitch.

...digweed, not that u care, but we all deal with grieving in different ways, I wouldn't at all be surprised that he is in the BIG STAGE of DENIAL and fighting with himself to go on stage which is clearly his HOME!!!...and we all break down in r home, that is where we feel comfort....hopefully as u mature u will develope compassion in life so when ur time comes to grive u can handle it, with that said u r entitled to ur opinion , but i wanted u to read my opinion of u!!!!!!!!!!!!!
