Kanye West Fashion Show Offers Swift Justice - Page 2
Kanye stated in a 2010 tweet, “I've finally realized as long as you use profanity when you talk about art and fashion it's better accepted!!!”
There is a difference between using profanity while talking “about art and fashion” and using profanity while talking TO the people who will ultimately decide your fate in the field. I went to art school myself, one of the first things that you learn as an artist is how to take criticism, because you are going to hear it your whole life. You take criticism and use it in order to grow as an artist.
During his rant he also tries to downplay the celebrity status, yet it’s the only reason I can imagine he was able to get a debut fashion show in Paris at Fashion Week. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.
Yet, on the wings of all this, in an article by The New Yorker, Taylor Swift is quoted as saying that she and Kanye give each other high-fives when they see each other now. Isn’t this a coincidental twist of Kanye karma?
The best that Kanye could do, in my opinion, instead of lashing out at everyone else, is take a long hard look at his line and decide if it truly is something he really wants to pursue. If so, bite your tongue, come back next year and show them.

I rest my case.
