He’s just getting started. Kanye West went on an extended — and wide-ranging — Twitter rant late into the night on Friday, February 12, addressing a number of things that have been on his mind since the conclusion of his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show at Madison Square Garden.
“Respect the struggle… respect the hustle… respect the dreams… respect the movement…” he wrote, bashing one media outlet that he claimed “dissed the collection that changed the world.”
“I had an album listening and clothing presentation and Madison Square Garden…” he continued. “People were crying… people were throwing up the fist… people were dancing… but [they] couldn’t say one thing positive knowing damn well you’d love to be on the YEEZY 350 list…”
West, 38, went on to directly address the site, noting that “fashion ain’t no joke for me… It’s a way of life… creative expression and industry…”
“And I’m proud of this picture with me and Caitlyn… She gave the most heart felt speech at my wedding,” he wrote, alongside a photo of the pair together before his show, “and was there in full support to see me realize this dream…”
West even praised Rihanna, 27, who debuted her Fenty x Puma Collection on Friday, by saying that “she killed it.” (The rapper previously ripped into the athletic wear company for its deal with his sister-in-law, Kylie Jenner.)
After a few more all-caps messages (“I’M SO HYPE RIGHT NOW EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED … HAVE YA’LL EVER SEEN TRON? THE END OF THE TRON WHERE EVERYTHING LIGHT UP!!!!”), West signed off with a photo of a vase full of white roses, with a thank you to designer Riccardo Tisci.
On Thursday, West sparked a huge uproar online after he dropped his track “Famous” at his fashion show, which included the lyrics “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that bitch famous.”
Swift’s die-hard fans and girl squad members immediately came to her defense.
“My attendance somewhere does not mean I agree with everything being said in the music playing there,” Swift’s pal Gigi Hadid wrote on Twitter. “My friends know of my loyalty.”
