KANYE WEST performed at Bonnaroo on Friday and was loudly booed! Even before he arrived, "F-k Kanye" signed began popping up around the grounds. When he got onstage, Kanye started preaching to the crowd about how great he is and saying: "I am the No. 1 muthaf-kin' rock star on the planet!" At that point there was a mass exodus as the crowd headed over to up dance duo Disclosure's tent early while chanting "F-k Kanye!"

Jennifer Devereaux and her 3-year-old daughter were awaiting takeoff on a JetBlue flight from New York to Boston on Saturday when the little girl felt the call of nature. However, when they tried to use the restroom as the plane sat on the tarmac, a flight attendant ordered them to return to their seats. A half hour later, still on the ground, the girl couldn't hold it any longer and relieved herself in her seat. To make matters worse, Jennifer had to use her own sweater to clean up the mess and was again yelled at by a flight attendant and told to sit back down. The flight attendant reported the incident to the captain, who announced the plane would be returning to the gate on account of a non-compliant passenger who would be removed by security guards. An off duty pilot sitting near Jennifer convinced the crew to allow her to stay onboard and after looking into the matter JetBlue apologized and gave Jennifer a $50 credit toward a future flight and offered to give $5,000 to her favorite charity. Jennifer later tweeted: "Happy tears," adding that "a really nice lady apologized to me!"
