Kanye West Defends Drake & The Rolling Stone Debacle, Then Goes OFF On Saturday Night Live! Watch His Outrageous Rant HERE!

kanyewest snl

Kanye West has beef with a lot of people but Drake ain’t one of them!

The Yeezus tour made a stop in Newark over the weekend and the preachy performer took 10 minutes to educate his audience on any bad blood between him and Drizzy.

According to Kanye, it’s nonexistent and TOTALLY made up by the media!

He sermonized the Prudential Center, saying:

"They always be trying to pit n*ggas against each other and that ain't going down no more. We love Drake. We love every motherf*cker that puts their heart into this motherf*cking music. If anything, we gonna go after the motherf*ckers writing that negativity!”

Drake was under fire last week after allegedly spouting off about being kicked off the cover of Rolling Stone by the late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. Critical comments he made about West’s album Yeezus also made it into the interview, which Drake claims he made outside of the “interview portion” of his conversation with the magazine.

So Kanye has Drake’s back and is going after anyone, “writing negativity.”

And just moments after making those comments, Ye went to work on going after those mother*ckers!

First up on his sh*tlist -

Please, please, PLEASE let this not be true!!!

Earlier this week, word spread that Saturday Night Live was holding auditions in Los Angeles in an attempt to try and find a MUCH needed black woman to join the cast of NBC’s late night staple, which celebrated its 39th season this year.

Above is a picture of some of the talented and funny females who were brought in for the chance of a lifetime - to audition for SNL creator Lorne Michaels! Only problem, Lorne wasn’t even there!

So was this audition legit or was this tryout sesh all just smoke and mirrors?!

Comedian Tiffany Haddish was one of the lucky few invited to the Groundlings Theater that day but she says the whole event was horse sh*t! Tiffany explained:

Seth Meyers Makes It Official With A Sunday Night Wedding With Alexi Ashe!

They said 'I dooo'!

Seth Meyers is totes off the market because he has tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend, Alexi Ashe.

The two reportedly walked down the aisle last night on Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts.

About 150 people were invited to the sweet and loving event including Olivia Munn, Allison Williams, Ali Larter, Rashida Jones, Jack McBrayer, and of course many of Seth's Saturday Night Live friends, Lorne Michaels, Amy Poehler, Fred Armisen, Taran Killam, Andy Samberg, Jason Sudeikis, Kristen Wiig, Will Forte and Kenan Thompson.

And even though it was certainly star-studded, it sounds like it still had an intimate and romantic vibe as the bride wore a cap sleeve lace dress and Seth chose a dark-colored suit for the big day.

We must say, the two couldn't have chosen a more perfect time to get hitched because Seth is about to be in serious work mode as he's taking over NBC's Late Night in 2014 while Jimmy Fallon moves to The Tonight Show!

Congrats to the newlyweds!
