11 Reasons Kanye West's 'yeezus' Tour Is Actually Incredible









Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, a source said: "Both Kanye and Kim love the UK. They think it is so quaint and beautiful. Kanye is fascinated by European history, the aristocracy and the British royals. "He loves watching Downton' Abbey on television and it's exactly the kind of place he would like to live in. "They discussed moving to the UK, but in the end they agreed on bringing a bit of Britain to Los Angeles." It is said Kanye wants a "statement home" to eventually pass down to his five-month-old daughter North, and he has apparently already invested money into researching the idea - although it would be given a modern twist.

PHOTOS:Kim Kardashian Attends Concert For Fiance Kanye West For me, I felt like the main character. In what Im dealing with even as a mega-popular-rich-celebrity-f**k-you-who-do-you-think-you-are-to-complain-about-anything situation that Im in, or in the past when Ive united states dealt with attempting to create in other fields or in clothing, Ive kind of been in this campaign that started with, ironically, my song, New Slaves where I was sitting in Paris and dealing with all of these companies that I promoted and I saw my friends promoted, and the reason literally why they would sell on Barneys floors, is because me and Jay Z , everyone wore it, West rambled. And it will be something that I sort of discovered maybe four years before that putting it on trend. And then you start just doing more research and say, hey, I want to be part of the creative conversation and be able to make money off of that also, and they stop you right there and say, you cant be a part of that conversation, or they give you a one-off, like, Louis Vuitton I did one shoe and Nike I did two shoes where they spread em apart over four years and they had like, the most impact possible. And I kind of saw that side of what it was as a creative to be free, as the parallel of the main character in12 Years A Slave. And then when it was taken away from me it felt like what it felt like as a creative to be enslaved, to have all of these ideas for product, things you were talking about earlier. West doesnt stop there.

Kanye's team of female backup dancers, clad in nude bodysuits or weird fur bibs, don't dance as much as creep in discomfiting, slow processions around the stage, like priestesses in a bizarro mass. Whatever they were doing, it was totally riveting. No one has gotten this avant-garde in an arena since Sonic Youth's opening set terrified Neil Young fans in 1991. Not only does Kanye's aesthetic exist in the nexus of art, money and fashion embodied by events like Art Basel, the rapper is clearly one of the architects of that aesthetic. 4.

23) at Madison Square Garden so closely mirrored his Yeezus sets at Brooklyns Barclays Center on Tuesday and Wednesday that, bizarre as it sometimes seemed, you could never rightly call it random. Im duty-bound to report that he did unleash another rant, once again past the three-quarters mark of the night, between Street Lights and Stronger, when he could just as easily have remarked Are you not entertained? and been guaranteed a bloodthirsty roar of approval. This rant (a term he mentioned and dismissed) didnt interrupt the show so much as strip it down to its raw essence: Literally screamingits a wonder he hasnt already shredded his voice on this tourwith only a little Autotune and synthesizer to blunt him, Kanye drew the audience in close to better take on the world. (Or Nike and Hedi Slimane, at least.) Dont ever let em tell you that Im crazy, he shouted, cause I believe in you! Kanye agitates, in a way, on behalf of all people who are dismissed as crazy when they threaten someone elses ideal orderparticularly an order that excludes people of color. Whatever affinities Kanye hopes for in the abstract, he easily found last night through his music: The thunderous new songs like Blood on the Leaves and Im In It that dominated the first half of the set proved just how well the uncommercial Yeezus can translate to a wide, endorphin-seeking audience; classics like Runaway and All of the Lights felt unburdened, newly hopeful. And oh yes, there was a mountain and a guy dressed up like Jesus and dancers in white-flesh-colored bodysuits (who made an altar-boy procession at one point, and got on all fours for Kanye to sit on at another) and a lot of masksKanye barely showed his face, not even his eyes and mouth.
