Is anyone else freaked out by the fact that Kanye West is going to be a father? I’m not sure if I was super worried until I saw his new concert get-up from a performance in Abu Dhabi.
He was wearing a straitjacket, which was accompanied by remarks on how many times he’s been called “crazy.” No, because wearing a straitjacket on stage certainly isn’t crazy.
It’s true that other artists have worn straitjackets in videos or on magazine covers (Eminem, Nicki Minaj, Alice Cooper, Lil Wayne, 2Pac), but they never wore it during a performance.
Not only does a straitjacket restrict your movements — how are you supposed to dance?! — it’s just kind of creepy. I know he was making a statement and all, but maybe it’s time to stop interrupting Taylor Swift’s speeches and wearing leather kilts and focusing on baby Kimye.
I can appreciate that he was trying to say…something, maybe trying to up the shock factor, but I think now he’s just getting a little too strange for my taste.
Hey, maybe that’s just me. I wouldn’t mind him getting back to his College Dropout days. He’s got talent, but I could do without the straitjacket, leather kilt, bedazzled masks, etc. etc.
West has said that he’s “not crazy,” he’s simply “not satisfied.” In any case, I’m sure this isn’t the last we’ve seen of his bizarre antics.
