UPDATE: After canceling the rest of his tour yesterday, Kanye West was taken to a hospital for exhaustion, many sources are reporting. L.A police  responded to a medical welfare call that was placed by West's doctor.

We have definitely ragged on Kanye from time to time, but we do hope that he gets the help that he needs — there have been many signs and incidents that illustrate a spiraling out.

People definitely have their opinions on West, but mental health is a very real thing and we'd hate to see his talent go down the drain.

West canceled his date at the Palace of Auburn Hills yesterday that was scheduled for December 22.

UPDATE: The Palace of Auburn Hills confirmed that Kanye West has indeed cancelled his show at the Palace of Auburn Hills for December 22. Tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase.

Man, we miss the old Kanye!

In case you missed it, butt-hurt Kanye West went on another rant Saturday night in Sacramento about all the normal things that one rants about: Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Hillary Clinton — you know, the usual stuff.

He abruptly left the stage after doing three songs, and rightfully so, fans were pissed. Last night, West cancelled his show in LA a few hours before the show was supposed to even start, and now the LA Times is reporting that West may be canceling the rest of the US tour all together.

He apparently told his crew that the rest of the tour is over, but there is no official word yet.

West already played a show here in Detroit at Joe Louis Arena, but he had to cancel his second date in metro Detroit at the Palace that was scheduled in October because Kim Kardashian-West was robbed in Paris. The rescheduled date was set for December 22.

We will keep you posted if we get an official word if the show is still on or not.
