Where were you at 4pm EST this afternoon? If your answer wasn’t either “at Madison Square Garden” or “in front of my computer trying to get that shitty Tidal stream to work”, then I don’t know what to say to you. Kanye West debuted his Yeezy Season 3 collection in NYC this afternoon and while it was the most bland, ridiculous collection ever (homeless chic will NEVER be a thing), he also graced us all with some of his trademark rants, some of which were completely nonsensical, while the ones that did makes sense were so full of delusions of grandeur that I don’t even know what else to say. However, the most important element of the afternoon was that West premiered The Life of Pablo, his new album that was previously known as Swish, WAVES, and probably seven other titles I can’t be bothered to remember.
The event was… interesting, I suppose. Kanye hired 1,000 models for the event, and gave them a pretty hardcore set of instructions to follow during the show (which, of course, started roughly an hour late):

Of course, the entire Kardashian/Jenner clan was in attendance, though they all dipped out early as he continued to ramble on and host a 20,000 person jam session as the worst DJ ever, continually starting songs, then abruptly cutting them off when he got bored. At several points, when the audience wasn’t as enthusiastic about a track, he told everyone off and shamed them for not applauding him more because it’s “hard work” ‘to do what he does. Yipee.
All in all, it was a mess of a collection and a mess of an event. Oh! One other thing that happened – apparently Kanye has a game coming out? The preview he showed was a CGI version of his mother as an angel, multiplied about 20 times, riding the back of a Pegasus into the gates of heaven. I don’t know what it means or where the entertainment value is in that, but what’s the point of anything Kanye does?
Oh, and Lamar was there! Looks like he’s doing better, after all.
