Looks like troublemaker Kanye West has found a new speech to interrupt: the in-flight safety speech. With all the nickel and diming the airlines seem to do these days, travelers from Minneapolis to New York got an entertaining freebie on Nov. 5. Wacky flight attendants have been known to sing to passengers, but a half hour into this flight, passengers got more than a lecture on what to do in an emergency. The New York Post reports that none other than Kanye West commandeered the intercom on the flight, announcing to passengers, " Yo, this your n*gga, Kanye," according to one passenger. He then launched into family-friendly performances of his hits "The Good Life" and "Gold Digger." The passenger said, "He couldn't decide if he wanted to do 'The Good Life' or 'Gold Digger,' so he was like, 'I'll just do a little bit of both.' It was awesome ... but I still have no idea how he got into the cockpit." Somewhere on that flight, there was surely an air marshal cringing in his seat.
