Kanye West Wears Outrageous Headpieces at Revel Concert in Atlantic City
Kanye West is known for his fearless stage performances but this one is for the record books. Yeezy kicked off his pre-New Year’s Eve concerts on Friday (Dec. 28) in Atlantic City, N.J. wearing — in our humble opinion — the most outrageous headpieces we have ever seen this side of Lady Gaga.
According to MTV, it was an all-white everything event as West blanketed himself in a winter-themed performance. Dressed in an ivory-colored trench coat, pants and sneakers, we can only guess that since it’s the winter season, Yeezy wanted to celebrate it at his concert in A.C.
But the talk of the Internet was West’s two intricate stage masks. During his 75-minute set, the rapper wore a feathered-lined mask that made him look like the Abominable Snowman. The other was a diamond-encrusted headpiece that was created by fashion designer Maison Mart Margiela.
Behind seven screens, which projected a wintery wonderland in 3D, West performed several of his noteworthy hits including ‘Cold,’ ‘Runaway,’ ‘Birthday Song’ and the ‘Cruel Summer’ bangers ‘Clique’ and ‘Mercy.’ He also dipped into his old catalog and rocked the classics like ‘Good Life,’ ‘Power,’ ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing’ and a snow-dusted rendition of ‘Jesus Walks.’
On Twitter, reactions to West’s, um, unique headwear were both critical and hilarious. One commenter tweeted, “He look[s] like a frozen sperm,” while another wrote, “Kanye West out here looking like a snow monster on Scooby Doo.” But this tweet probably sums up the whole thing entirely: “He think[s] he lady gaga,” tweeted @_MsHoliday.
This was Kanye West’s first of a three-show residency at the Revel hotel in Atlantic City, following his two sold-out shows in July. We can’t wait to see what he has planned for his next two concerts on today (Dec. 29) and Sunday (Dec. 30).
