In the last paragraph of a Gawker post on how an ignorant-ass rapper has taken Kanye West to task for being the “pioneer of this queer shit” and “lookin’ half a fag” and being the guy who “introduced the skinny jeans to the rap scene,” Rich Juzwiak wrote something that I personally found way more interesting than a virtually unknown rapper taking shots at a global superstar in a diss track: the fact that Kanye’s people may be trying to scrub the internet of pics of him wearing a kilt, which some Americans of course refer to as a skirt.
Getty confirmed that they were asked to scrub their site of the several shots of Kanye from the 12-12-12 show they hosted. They wouldn’t say why.
Interesting! But what strikes me as off about this is that Kanye wore the kilt/skirt throughout the Watch the Throne tour. Why are the images from the 12/12/12 benefit being specifically targeted? Is it solely because he’s being ripped on by this rapper, who I won’t even name here because he’s obviously a sh*thead seeking attention, for wearing a kilt/skirt at this particular event? If so, then that’s just weak. WEAK.
Memo to Kanye: if you don’t want people making fun of you for wearing a kilt/skirt, don’t wear a kilt/skirt in public. OR, you know, wear the damn kilt/skirt and just OWN IT, ala Bey-Bey…
