Kanye West off slags fashion bloggers and talks pro fur

Kanye West is happy to make enemies it seems (how many of you are still a fan after Taylor Swift-gate?) with a recent though-since-deleted blog post where he rants about his pro fur stance (he says he wears fur because he’s ‘fearless’) and talks about how he thinks fashion bloggers “dress mad prude” and don’t live fashion. West recently came under criticism when he wore fur to the Louis Vuitton menswear show in Paris last month with PETA saying he looks like an idiot. “Kanye can’t help making himself look like an idiot, whether at an awards show or a fashion show,” PETA’s Dan Matthews said in a statement. “He and his girlfriend look like pathetic creatures from a shabby roadside zoo.”

West even went as far as comparing all the “dissing” he’s getting to what Michael Jackson experienced with one of his arguments also tied to American President Barack Obama. If you could take West seriously before, we suggest you read his rant – though may have been deleted from his blog, smart fashion bloggers thought to copy and paste the evidence:

When it’s all said and done, remember the fearless, remember the dreamers, remember those who represent the ghetto…the fairy tale of nothing to something. I’m briefly saddened by negative comments, but i have to remember those people are scared, incapable or just plain idiots. We are the f***ing rock stars baby. No cocaine, just life my ni***s!! No cocaine, just life! It’s funny to me when fashion bloggers down our oufits and then super jock outlandish shit on the runway but then they dress mad prude and don’t live fashion. We live it man. F*** that, we live it!!! We live it so hard people live through us! We represent your inner spirit!! The child in us all, the brutal honesty, the naivety, the brave warrior, the adrenaline that allows a mother to lift a car if her child was trapped under it! Remember, there was a time when everybody dissed Michael Jackson every chance they could. Imagine the pressure of being a true icon. Very few human beings are strong enough to take constant hate!!! If we don’t do what you feel is the shit, you beat us up verbally and mentally, like a catholic school teacher beating a creative student into submission. I can hear you screaming ‘color inside the lines!!!’ Well f*** your coloring book, color by numbers approach to life. At the end of the day who are we hurting??? Oh “the new black???” since Barack is president blacks don’t like fur coats, red leather, and fried chicken any more?! When you truly understand cultural settings, boundaries, and our modern day caste systems, then you can feel the glory and pain from the days of kings in africa to the new kings of the media. Let the ball players dance after they score! It’s life my ni***s, it’s life! Remember clothing is a choice. We were born naked!!! Fresh is an opinion, love is objective, taste is selective, and expression is my favorite elective. No more politics or apologies!!!

    Seriously how does this man get invitations anywhere anymore. They should start cancelling his invites and passing them on to fashion bloggers.

  • Margaret says:

    I love Kanye too – he keeps it interesting. And the truth is many fashion bloggers blog because they have a real passion for fashion, don’t live it and want to express it. I don’t think these are the bloggers he is talking about tho.
