Travis Scott seemed ready to nearly toss an overzealous fan into the crowd after they managed to storm his stage – but then decided to handle things differently.
In a clip captured at the Austin stop of his Circus Maximus tour on Tuesday (November 21), a fan who’s clearly ready to rage can be seen running through the elaborate stage setup.
At first, Travis grabs him by the shirt collar and looks like he is going to get him out of dodge immediately. But once security comes running, Cactus Jack actually wavs them off and instead decides to rage alongside the excited fan.
The kid concluded his time on stage – by the end of which he was shirtless – by diving into the crowd. You can watch the epic clip below.
Travis Scott recently hijacked something himself as well – though this was merely an interview.
Ahead of the GQ Men of the Year Awards, which took place at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood on November 15, the Houston native was approached for a quick red carpet chat by a reporter holding flash cards.
Grabbing the printed prompts, the 32-year-old began reading the interview questions himself and promptly answering them.“‘You wanted to turn UTOPIA into a musical — is there a plan for a Broadway show yet?,’” he asked before offering an enthusiatic, “Fuck yeah, it is.”
He continued: “‘You said you wanted to study architecture at Harvard — which city’s architecture inspires you the most?’ Not gonna lie, Tokyo is kind of fire … Rome is fire …Pompeii is actually amazing … Chile is actually crazy […] Brazil is actually fucking beautiful.”
Travis Scott recently offered more details about the creative process behind his latest album and his plans to create a much different version of the project.
In a new interview with GQ, he said that he’s always wanted to write a musical, and that he was planning on channeling that desire through UTOPIA at one point.
“I wanted the album to be a play,” he said. “I was trying to take Broadway — because the thing about Broadway theaters, they’re kind of small — I was trying to bring the idea of Broadway to bigger venues. Either plays in stadiums or plays in arenas, but still make it feel like a Broadway bill.”
He went on to say that he even went so far as to meet with playwright Jeremy O. Harris (SlavePlay) to try to make it happen.
“I love Jeremy O. Harris. He’s amazing. We were exploring all these different ideas. I met with him. I met with a couple of different people. We just talked about the idea of it happening. I was still trying to figure it out,” he said.
