As most of you know by now, Kanye West a.k.a. Yeezus has been hospitalized in L.A. shortly after cancelling his Saint Pablo Tour on Saturday November 19, 2016. The tour still had 21 dates remaining including a stop in Houston on December 2, 2016. Ticketmaster is offering refunds, but what is really going on with Kanye? This is a question many of us may never know, but his recent rants gives us some insight into the rapper’s struggles with the media, music superstars Jay-Z and Beyonce, racism and politics.
During saturday’s show in Sacramento, Kanye expressed his feelings over the radio playing the same songs over and over again…let’s not front though, turn your radio on and you will find yourself ranting and complaining about the same damn thing! I know i do EVERYTIME! He also goes on to express that he is not pointing a finger at those who work in radio because they “have to feed their kids”, but he is speaking on the program directors and those who have a major hand in what the public is being fed musically. He used Drake and DJ Khaled as examples of artists who stay in constant rotation by saying that “they set that shit up!” West also goes on to expose Beyonce at the MTV Video Music Awards by saying that she refused to perform unless she won Video of the Year. “We are all great, but sometimes we play into politics too much, F$#k being cool, F$#k winning” he screamed into the mic while standing on his platform a few hundred feet above the crowd.
Of course he was met with some applause and some resistance, but at the end of the day, you can’t knock this man for telling his truth. Kanye West has always been known as an artist that is not afraid to speak his mind whether it is about the music business, fellow rap artists, politics and even on who should have won video of the year. So are we really surprised that all this is happening right now?? Is Kanye really the crazed, arrogant, hot headed, and drug induced man that everyone is saying he is? Or is that a personal opinion placed on him, just as he has his own opinions and truths on what he experiences firsthand with artists and an industry that is known for being cutthroat and full of snakes?
Overall, i do believe that cancelling the tour was a bit much, however, i don’t knock the man for his viewpoints on Trump or Clinton. Everyone has a right to vote for who the like and if his decisions and feelings don’t line up with the majority, it does not give us a right to bash him. During his rant he kept asking Khaled and Jay-Z to not send killers at his head…what exactly does he mean by that? Is he in danger? What is really going on in the Life of Pablo? Only time will tell and Mr. West has been and continues to be one of the most controversial artists of our generation leaving the question to be asked; Is he a mad genius or is he just mad?
Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian-West are the stars of the Spring/Summer 2015 Balmain Paris ad campaign. It’s only right, after all they’re always caught wearing the latest fashions from the high-end line. The shots were take by Mario Sorrenti and we can expect to find the ads in magazines in early March of next year. The campaign debuted via twitter through Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing account. Rousteing also released this statement:
“For this Menswear campaign, I wanted to capture a moment of love. Kim and Kanye are style icons and friends. It is an honour to have them in this Balmaincampaign. Together, they represent love, beauty and diversity—they are the new modernity. This is more than a campaign, it expresses something beyond clothes—it is a celebration of love and friendship. This is a new statement for Balmain.”
