Singer Kehlani’s San Francisco Pride festival performance cut short


R&B star Kehlani was forced to cut her performance at the San Francisco Pride festival short on Sunday (24Jun18) after she arrived late.

The Crzy hitmaker was in the middle of performing her song What I Need with surprise guest Hayley Kiyoko when her microphone and music cut off.

According to Billboard sources, Kehlani started her set 30 minutes late and organisers had to end it abruptly to comply with the city’s curfew.

Kehlani tried to carry on with her set because she had five songs left, but she eventually ended the show.

The 23-year-old took to Twitter after the show to explain what happened, writing: “san francisco pride just cut our sound system and mic off half way through my set with 5 more songs to perform. i love you bay area, but f**k that s**t man (sic).”

“SF Pride staff been rude all day,” she added. “didn’t expect any of this. don’t wanna cause a situation because i really care about this community but stay away from Pride if your heart isn’t in it. san francisco deserved better today.”

She also complained about the heavy police presence at the rally, stating: “the cops are out fully strapped (armed)… get. home. safe.”
