Kanye West Gets Emotional and Tears Into Media During Bonnaroo Concert

"This is real rock and roll..."
Billboard reports that Kanye West was emotional and tore into the media during his set at this year's 2014 Bonnaroo Festival. You can check out a clip that was released online of part of West getting emotional below.
According to the report, attendees still apparently had an issue with West, based on his late appearance at the festival in 2008. There were reportedly South Park, which famously parodied West in the "Fishsticks" episode, signs in the crowd and one featured a cutout of West in his animated Aquaman suit.
In one of the more positive moments of his performance, West stated: "I want y'all to know that anytime I'm in the studio, make a record, make a t-shirt, I give it everything I got. And when I talk that shit, it's so you can talk that shit. If you're a fan of me, you're a fan of your motherfuckin' self. You can go out and do anything." These were humble words for the man, who contradicted the tone of this speech by ending it with "I am the number one muthafuckin' rock star on the planet, at Bonnaroo!"
During the outro of "Runaway," West said: "The fact that there are so many people here tonight, it humbles me," he said. "It humbles me in a way it gives me strength. I know I set my goals very high. What I promise you as I stand here tonight, 37 years old, this is only the beginning."
Below is West's set list from the festival:
"I Don't Like (Remix)"
"Can't Tell Me Nothin'"
"Say You Will"
"Run This Town"
"Diamonds of Sierra Leone"
"All Falls Down"
"Touch the Sky"
"All of the Lights"
