８月２５日から１２月３１日までの超過密スケージュールで行われている Kanye West の Saint Pablo Tour が先週のロスアンジェルス公演を最後にキャンセルになったそうだ。そしてカニエウェストは本日から入院してしまったらしい。関係筋によると彼はファッションやミュージック関係の仕事を過度にこなしており大変疲れているそうな。また彼の嫁 であるキムさんは１０月にフランスで強盗にあったばかりだ。
The reason behind the cancellation? Exhaustion, according to TMZ. The site’s Kanye source said, “He’s just exhausted. He’s been working around the clock on fashion design, both his own line and the Adidas line.” The source added that Kanye expects to reschedule the tour in the new year.
This weekend’s show in L.A. had been organized to compensate for one he had cut short on November 3 due to problems with his voice. The latest cancellation follows Yeezy’s Sacramento concert that featured a rant that covered all manner of topics from President-elect Donald Trump to Jay Z to Beyoncé, before he left the stage abruptly after only 30 minutes. Days before that he caused a stir with another rant proclaiming his support for Trump.
Fans with tickets for the L.A. show or the Sacramento show have since been offered refunds.
And just to make things even stranger, it seems like Kanye has gotten even more sidetracked from his music — posting fashion photos on Instagram.
In total, Kanye (or someone with his password) posted 99 blurry, uncaptioned photos to his once-dormant Instagram account, featuring various items of clothing being worn by various models. As it stands, those photos are currently the only ones on his account (bar one still from the movie Total Recall that he posted in September when he first joined the photo and video-sharing platform).
“Famous” director Eli Russell Linnetz referred to the photos as an “installation” with his own IG post, so it’s possible he’s the one behind the gallery. HipHopDX reached out to Linnetz’s people for clarification but didn’t immediately hear back.
