UPDATE: Pan Am issued a statement Tuesday evening, shooting down reports that Kanye West had abruptly cut his performance short.
"As this was a live broadcast, Kanye West was always scheduled to perform for 13 minutes. He fulfilled this commitment in great style and while there was technical difficulty at the end due to circumstances beyond anyone's control, he rolled with it the way great artists do. To imply that he abruptly cut short his performance or that he was anything less than professional is incorrect. We could not have been more thrilled," Neala Barton, Senior VP Communications and Media Relations for Pan Am, said in a statement to ET.
Kanye West cannot be bothered with "technical difficulties" when he's performing for a 40,000-plus audience.
