Funny how they wait 'til you gone just to miss you

from Kanye West (Ft. R. Kelly & Teyana Taylor) – To The World Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Stupid some so-called “fans” will attack an artist when they try to produce new songs and begin to change up their style slightly. A lot of fans will completely abandon said artist until the artist disappears off the scene.

Later down the line, these same fans will then go back to listening to the newer things they came out while asking the artist to come back into the spotlight. This has happened to many great artists — notable examples being Eminem, Jay-Z and of course R.Kelly.

They love you, then they hate you, then they love you again!
