Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 4 Debut
Kanye revealed his Yeezy Season 4 line yesterday with an outdoor runway in NY – and many fashion critics were panning the debut. They complained that the show started over an hour late, models were seen hobbling down the runway and losing their balance because of the shoes they had to wear, and that one model even fainted and no one from Yeezy’s team was there to give them water – a member of the audience did instead. BTW, at the show he confirmed he is working with Drake on a new album, so there’s that.
Drake’s DJ’s $3M Jewelry Stolen
The other night, someone snuck onto one of Drake’s tour buses while he was performing in Arizona and stole between $2-3M worth of jewelry belonging to Drake’s DJ (WHO THE F KEEPS THREE MILLION DOLLARS WORTH OF JEWELRY WITH THEM!!!??) Drake clearly was pissed in the video shot behind the scenes at the arena. Cops later arrested a man – they found the briefcase with the jewelry in his possession. He had worked the arena in the past but wasn’t working that evening. Drake’s dad said that Drake and Rihanna are just friends. Which would suck if that’s true.
