Kanye West

'New Slaves' Screening

SHUT DOWN By Cops

5/26/2013 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0526_kanye_west_tmz2Not everyone was as excited for Kanye West's new music video as Kanye West ... especially cops in Houston, TX who SHUT DOWN a public screening of "New Slaves" before it even started, this according to local reports.

Kanye's been screening the video in various cities across the U.S. at random times by projecting it on the sides of buildings. On Friday, via Twitter, KW announced three new locations in Houston ... but things didn't go as planned.

The screening set to go down at the Rothko Chapel Friday night was shut down by cops before getting off the ground, according to the Houston Chronicle. Police reportedly broke up the "upbeat, respectful" crowd by demanding they disperse ASAP or risk being arrested for trespassing.

The other two Houston screenings didn't fare any better -- one was reportedly cancelled due to technical difficulties and the other simply never happened.

Typical crappy TMZ reporting; he's actually showing the video around the world (there are more screenings in Europe than anywhere else at the moment). Kanye may be a gayfish, but at least he knows how to use Google.

Kanye- is Kim really pregnant?
If so, is it yours?
Was it invitro or artificial insemination?
Or are you using a French surrogate?

Between Obama and Kanye we'll have race riots any day now.Perhaps Obama should take Kanye along on his never ending campaign stops.

Man, this loser is so desperate to be famous he will do anything. I hear they actually like you over there in Europe (God knows what it is that they like) so just stay the hell over there. You are too much of an a**hole Kanye. You are never going to be any kind of big singing star. You and Kim are 2 of the most pitiful people on the planet. Cant stand to look at either one of you.

Hopefully the "New Slaves" is about generations of kids sucling at the teet of the government and not working for themselves. Instead of making their own way in this world and in their life, they are depending on someone else to take care of their responsibilities and children(the next generation of slaves to the government welfare)
