Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 4 show was under fire after many thought some of his models passed out from the heat! However, according to his collaborator, Vanessa Beecroft, the models could’ve been ‘overwhelmed’ by the ‘intense situation.’ She even defended the rapper’s show, saying ‘There was food and water,’ there. Get more details here!
Italian performance artist, Vanessa Beecroft, 47, dished major secrets behind Kanye West‘s NYFW drama, Sept. 8. After Page Six mentioned that an editor tweeted, “Model passed out in the heat is given water by man in the audience but no one on the #YeezySeason4 team helps,” Vanessa defended the 39-year-old’s show, and told the site, “That’s a production issue not related to me … I’m not sure why some people fainted yesterday, but in my case, when it has happened in my performances, it was the level of emotional stress … It wasn’t physical. There was food and water. The situation is so intense and people are looking at you and you are standing.”
Vanessa added, “Yesterday, I don’t know if it was because they were overwhelmed. I’m not sure … I was bothered yesterday in a sense that I’m sorry for what’s happening, but at the same time, I wouldn’t know how to prevent it if it was emotional.” The Italian artist even revealed that she believed his show delay was all part of a “mediation” plan. We can’t say we’re surprised, since this is typical behavior from Kanye, who always keeps up guessing!
The rapper’s show generated more buzz when some of the models were seen tripping down the runway. One model even experienced major trouble when her designer shoes broke! She powered through, wobbling all over the catwalk, until a gentleman stepped onto the runway to help her through the rest of the show. As if that wasn’t harsh enough, Twitter users immediately started bashing her, claiming she put on a poor performance.
The news surrounding his show has gone viral. Memes of the models stumbling down the runway flooded Twitter, and the internet went wild. But, none of the negative comments seem to be phasing Kanye. He’s been living it up at Fashion Week, hanging out with friends and family and partying it up!
