Kanye West Is Cool with the Paparazzi as Long as Their Sweater Game Is On Point
Who wants to bet that Kanye's guilty pleasure song is "The Sweater Song" by Weezer? Because the man will abandon his principles for a good knit. Despite his deep and utter loathing of the paparazzi, Yeezus made an exception for a photographer who was wearing a dope sweater on the street. In true Kanye fashion, he made his cab driver pull over, flung his door open and started taking photos on his iPhone.
The sweater in question, which destroyed Kanye's paradigm, is from D9, and it's gotta super spacey vibe. Astronaut status, if you will. I'd pull over for that sweater too, but then again, I don't have a rich personal history of going nuts on the paparazzi. This dude was probably frightened at the sight of Kanye creeping up on the curb to confront him. But worry not, photog friend, your slick sweater has saved you.
First thoughts on seeing the D9 piece: it definitely reminds me of Danny's Apollo sweater in The Shining, an item I have been trying to find a replica of for years. Kanye taking photos of this similar style probably means he's gonna emulate it in an upcoming fashion line — if so, he'd be a little late — but that does me no good, because I have champagne taste on a beer budget.
So I guess the moral of the story is: if you're a paparazzo trying to get photos of Kanye and crew, look fly as hell, because he will let the water under the bridge if he likes the style you're sporting.
