Kanye West Bashes Fashion Critics, Throws Shade at Boot Cut Jeans
Kanye West is no stranger to controversy, but it looks like his temper may have gotten the best of him again. The rapper recently lashed out at his detractors in a profanity-laden speech about his new fashion line.
West premiered Dw Kanye West, his first women's ready-to-wear collection, during Paris Fashion Week on Oct. 1, to an A-list crowd that included Ciara, Jared Leto, and Lindsay Lohan. But at the after-party, he was vocal about his struggles to get the line off the ground.
The Boombox reports that the hip-hop superstar ranted to the crowd: "This is not some celebrity s---. I don't f--- with celebrities ... The amount of people that tried to get me a celebrity f---ing deal. They said, 'You need to do boot-cut jeans, or you won't sell.' Shut the f--- up!"
Not that boot cut jeans would have earned him any points with editors, who slammed West's collection as messy and inconsistent. As far as we're concerned, the line could have been worse — at least West fared better than Lindsay Lohan's ill-fated venture with Ungaro — but it's hard to believe that Yeezy hasn't learned his lesson about running his mouth into a microphone. As for whether West's ego can survive the onslaught from critics — well, we're not too worried about it.
