Music fella Kanye West has been all over the news recently for being broke and now it seems he really can't afford to buy anything

So I know we've all been hearing about just how broke Kanye West is, with the music star reaching out to folks like Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for a loan to clear his mounting debts. But it turns out things have gotten so bad he's resorting to stealing.

When Kanye posted a picture of him listening to artist Sufjan Stevens on YouTube he didn't take the time to close down some tabs in the background where you can clearly see pages open for The Pirate Bay, MediaDownloader and the 50 best VST software. That combination of tabs doesn't take much to piece together, and unlucky for Kanye someone noticed. That someone was Deadmau5 who had this to say.

He's got a point - the Serum software costs around $200 and stealing in general shouldn't be encouraged. Now there's no proof that Kanye actually downloaded anything illegal but there's plenty of evidence in that single picture and it's certainly an embarrassing situation for the star.
