As if we don’t get enough of Kanye West’s nonsensical comments (president Yeezus 2020 anyone?), the rapper recently made another “important” announcement.
According to a candid two-hour interview with SHOW studio, Mr. Kardashian is up in arms with the fashion industry for being discriminatory against him. This isn’t a “hands up don’t shoot,” #blacklivesmatter discrimination though. West complained the fashion industry discriminated against him because he isn’t gay. Oh the irony.
According to Huffington Post, West complained:
"I feel like I got discriminated in fashion for not being gay," he said. "In music, you definitely get discriminated in music if you are gay. It takes amazing talents to break down barriers. Everyone thought that when Frank Ocean dropped that it was going to be bad for his career. I feel like it’s so cliché to speak about him as it relates to this subject, but there are people who broke the ground and he broke the ground. The people that break the stereotypes make history."
For Kanye, heterosexuality has apparently handicapped him in the fashion industry. His lack of success certainly has nothing to do with those overpriced rags he is pedaling as wearable clothing.
Kanye seems to be taking the high road in all this “discrimination” though. According to Hollywood Life, he has labeled himself a groundbreaking pioneer for being straight in the fashion world. The rapper went on and gave a gracious nod to Caitlyn Jenner for being a real “trailblazer” and breaking down stereotypical barriers. Because society is much better off with these trailblazing barrier breakers who have complicated everything from pronouns to bathroom use.
But all whining and crying aside, the rap artist just doesn’t care what anyone thinks of him. He explained:
“The first thing I thought about was a black radio show host maybe possibly making jokes because the black culture is generally homophobic,” he said. “Then it was like, ‘Fuck what people say. Fuck what people think.’ I feel proud to be in a family that has so many people breaking ground for generations to come. I’m still getting acquainted to what’s politically correct [to say].”
Right. Yo Kanye, we’re really happy for you and we’ll even let you finish … We just hope you’re finished with your nonsense.
