Never afraid to speak his mind, Kanye West is seeking revenge on the harsh fashion critics who dissed his Yeezy Season 4 runway at NYFW. Unsurprisingly, the rapper broke out into another EPIC rant at the Harper’s Bazaar party on Sept. 9 to settle the score. Check it out!
Yeezy Season 4 is like a third baby to designer Kanye West, 39. He put his heart and soul out on that runway during NYFW, but it still wasn’t enough to impress fashion critics. “I tried to listen to all the reports and s—, and I tried my best to stop trying, but I just couldn’t do it,” he admitted at the Harper’s Bazaar party, adding, “At the beginning of this performance, I tried my best not to try. No matter what they write I couldn’t stop. I appreciate y’all for going on this journey with me.”
Midway through his rant, the “Famous” rapper changed his tune, and offered praise to his friend and fashion “icon” Carine Roitfeld, who hosted the Harper’s Bazaar party. “I appreciate the moment when Carine put her friend on the cover. At this moment, I’m talking about when she put Tom Ford on the cover. She’s a mother——- icon, man!” Check out some of the tough feedback he received from other fashion idols.
This is shameful and horrible and I regret coming. #YeezySeason4

Ouch! The rapper also took to Twitter to share some additional thoughts, writing, “Each and every one’s time, insight and feelings are invaluable to us. We want to make people feel great.” The day of the runway, guests boarded a hot bus with no water (a common theme for the evening), and were transported to Roosevelt Island, where they, and the models, sat in the sun for HOURS due to a delayed start. The models were wearing skin tight clothing, and eventually had to take a seat because they were so dehydrated. It was about 80 degrees that day, and NY gets super humid in the summer.
Unfortunately, things didn’t get any better once the show actually started. A multitude of models seemed to have problems with their heels, and Amina Blue (Tyga’s rumored ex) actually took her shoes off in the middle of the runway because they were so uncomfortable. Didn’t they do a practice walk before hand? Another model’s heel broke off entirely, when a kind audience member helped her wobble down the runway.
