Kanye West had quite the evening on Tuesday when he attended the annual TIME 100 gala, where he was honoured as one of the most influential people in the world. Kanye’s night began when he appeared on the red carpet with wife Kim Kardashian and was ‘pranked’ by comedienne Amy Schumer in front of the world's press.

Kanye WestWest is one of the cover stars of Time magazine’s 'most influential' issue.

Schumer threw herself at the feet of the power couple, but the stunt garnered pretty much no reaction from Kim and Kanye. Yes Kimye didn't even bat an eyelid at the sight of a grown woman falling in front of them and instead just continued on down the red carpet business as usual.

"I saw them and said to my publicist, 'Can I pretend to fall?' and she said, 'I can't stop you,'" Schumer told Time after the stunt.

Safely inside, Kanye took to the stage during the gala, performing a 20 minute set and wowing the audience of dignitaries and celebrities. The rapper appeared on stage surrounded by several half naked men, under an orange light to the sound of James Brown’s ‘It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World’.

West then launched into new single ‘All Day’ and then three tracks from his 2013 album Yeezus, ‘Black Skinhead’, ‘New Slaves’ and ‘Blood on the Leaves’. He then followed with ‘Runaway’ and ‘Only One’ before closing his set with classics ‘Good Life’, ‘Gold Digger’ and ‘Touch the Sky’.

In the latest issue of Time magazine, entrepreneur Elon Musk contributes an essay on the rapper, writing, “Kanye West would be the first person to tell you he belongs on this list.”

“The dude doesn’t believe in false modesty, and he shouldn’t,” Musk continues. “Kanye’s belief in himself and his incredible tenacity - he performed his first single with his jaw wired shut - got him to where he is today. And he fought for his place in the cultural pantheon with a purpose.”
