Kanye West has used the Milli Vanilli defence and blamed the rain for delaying his headline set at the Gold Coast Big Day Out last night. A chorus of “bullshits” met the rapper as punters waited 45 minutes for his set to start, an act which only ranks second among his most egregious errors of the day. The serial interrupter performed sound check during Soundgarden’s set on the adjacent main stage, prompting this jibe from frontman Chris Cornell: “Sounds like there’s children playing music there, retarded children, retarded as in held back. There’s no other word for it,”. Actually, Chris, there is. It begins with D and ends in bag.
