Poor Kanye West – his collection was never really going to make Victoria Beckham quake in her six-inch stilettos, was it? The rapper has blasted his critics who slammed his debut womenswear collection in what was essentially an angry rant.
The singer began his tirade by addressing the naysayers:
“Thank you for anybody that didn’t believe, because they motivated us to break our boundaries … we don’t know what the reviews will be, we don’t know what they will say, but I got a chance to go to Italy and feel those fabrics.”
Kanye then ensured that everyone knew the background of the collection, explaining that he “begged Louis Vuitton to let me do more shoes after my shoes sold out in two weeks, and they did not. I begged Nike, I begged this company to let me do it.”
Even though he is a world-renowned singer, Kanye claimed to have put a lot on the line for the collection, going to great lengths to guarantee he had the funds to make his debut into a womenswear line perfect.
“I took out m*****f****** loans to get the best models, to get the best designers, to get the best venue,” he said. “I gave you everything that I had.”
Oh dear. We can’t decide whether or not to feel sorry for him. Thoughts?
