Kanye West Got Called Out For Texting During Opening Night Of “The Cher Show”
If Kim Kardashian had her own version of “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music, she might list off attention, money, whatever is injected into her butt and Cher’s name. Kim loves Cher and dressed as her for Halloween. Last night, she and Kanye West went to the opening night performance of the Broadway musical based on Cher’s life, The Cher Show. Since Kanye’s version of “My Favorite Things” would just involve listing his own name 20 to 30 times, it should come as no surprise that Kanye didn’t care about anything other than himself and texted during the show.
Jarrod Spector, who plays Sonny Bono in the show, caught Kanye texting during the show. Jarrod tweeted at Kanye in the most pleasant way possible and told him to please knock it off.

Kanye, of course, saw that Jarrod had tweeted at him (he was glued to his phone, after all). So Kanye tweeted back a half-assed apology and swore he and Kim were totally enjoying the show.
the dynamics of Cher and Sonny’s relationship made Kim and I grab each other’s hand and sing “I got you babe”

Kim meanwhile managed to wait until the show was well over to tweet how much she enjoyed it.
The Cher Show was sooooo good! I learned so much about her that I didn’t know. She really opened up about her life and all of the actors were sooo good! You all have to check it when in NYC. We had the best time! ✨

We had the best time? Who is this we she’s talking about? Because it’s pretty clear from Jarrod’s tweet that Ye wasn’t. Maybe I’m wrong, and Kanye really was into the performance. Inspired, even. He might have been taking notes. “Note to self…The Kanye Show. All songs by me, starring me, wardrobe by me. Me me me. Wait a minute, might actually just be describing one of my fashion shows.”
Here’s more from the opening night of The Cher Show starring the multitude of Chers from the performance, the real Cher herself, Bob Mackie, and Kim and Kanye on the red carpet.
