Kanye West: Top Five Freak Outs, From Laser Pointers in Paris to the MTV VMAs

Riding the "Niggas in Paris" wave all the way to Europe, Kanye West and Jay-Z's Throne tour finally made it to France.

The rappers performed two-sold out shows at the Paris Bercy over the weekend. And though the gigs were attended by the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, the NBA's Amar'e Stoudemire, and filmmaker Spike Lee, one particular French fan is making all the headlines.

According to TMZ, Kanye threw a temper tantrum after a fan flashed his laser pointer at the stage. "You gonna get fucked up, kicked out, and all that shit," Ye tells the fan. "Chill the fuck out."

Of course, it's not the first time Kanye West flips out. The dude's an emotional wreck with an incredibly short fuse. Here are some of our favorite Kayne freak outs.

Upcoming Events

5. Interrupted

What's Kanye's biggest pet peeve? We're guessing it's being interrupted while interviewed on the radio.

In this clip, Ye's loses his shit at the 2:42 mark, rolling back in his chair and throwing a bitch fit after the station's DJ interrupts him once and for all.

4. Today Show Drama

A few years ago, Matt Lauer interviewed Kanye on Today and brought up the Taylor Swift incident. The clip of West rushing the VMA stage was shown as he talked about the event when, all of a sudden, shit got awkward.

"How am I supposed to talk if you're going to run this thing while I'm talking?" he asks Lauer. "Please don't let that happen again."
