Kanye West is arguably one of Hollywood’s most outspoken celebrities, who seemingly gives little care about what his words could lead to. And on Saturday night, he likened himself to US president-elect Donald Trump as he cut his concert short in order to give Hillary Clinton, Beyonce, Jay Z and outgoing US president Barack Obama a tongue-lashing.

“It’s a new world, Hillary Clinton, it’s a new world,” he said while on his floating platform stage. “Feelings matter. Because guess what? Everybody in Middle America felt a way and they showed you how they felt.”

West followed his statement by saying that he would follow Trump in his political incorrectness and direct manner of speaking. “Yeah, I’m taking his lead,” West said. The rapper had previously admitted that he would have voted Trump has he gone to the polls on election day. He praised Trump’s means of communication as “very futuristic.”

After giving his insight on the political state of the United States, West started to speak about the politics behind the music industry. In particular, he questioned by he was often overlooked at awards shows and why some musicians are always better promoted than others. “Beyoncé, I was hurt because I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over ‘Hotline Bling,’” he said. “Sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forget who we are just to win.” West also urged Jay Z to call him and “talk to [him] like a man.”

The 39-year-old father-of-two then gave his two cents about why Obama did not -- and could not -- make America great. “He couldn’t be him to be who he was,” West began. “Black men have been slaves. Obama wasn’t allowed to do this and still win. He had to be perfect. But being perfect don’t always change things.”

When it was clear that West would not perform any longer, concert goers took to social media to demand refunds. Some of the tickets to his Sacramento, California concert cost as much as US$250 (AU$340). On the night itself, the arena simply urged the audience to make their way home safely and that information would follow. However, Golden 1 Center has since released a statement saying that all tickets will be refunded within the next few days.
