After having his mic muted, and show cut short, Kid Cudi proceeded to destroy stage equipment at Australia’s Heatwave Festival. Shortly thereafter, Cudder hit his Tumblr to explain his behavior.
“If my set is EVER cut short at any show, im trashing the stage. Not out of anger, it takes a lot to get me furious nowadays, but out of principle. The fans always deserve a full set at all shows, especially when they spend their hard earned money on expensive tickets.
A lot of artist wouldnt do what I did in Australia, but I will. Spread the word. No matter the circumstance, cut my set short, im breaking Isht. And next time im startin a riot. Me and my fans. Cause promoters will sometime take advantage of the artists, and u gotta let em know what time it is. Cutting nobody any slack.”— Rager
Whether or not he’s serious, let’s hope it never comes to that again. Cudi’s new album with Dot Da Genius, WZRD, is available February 28th.
