Since it worked so well when Beyoncé tried to pull this off, Kanye West decided to try and ask the internet nicely to completely forget about that time he wore a leather skirt. So of course, here’s The Sun telling everyone about it, and also including a picture of Kanye wearing a leather skirt …
He’s asked picture agency Getty Images to delete every snap they have of him in his leather skirt at the Hurricane Sandy benefit gig last year. He must have a problem with that particular design, as their website still stocks other Kanye skirt pics. The rapper got ribbed over the outfit by stars including Chris Brown. Tellingly, his request came after rap rival Lord Jamar posted a track online called “Lift Up Your Skirt” — an unflattering take on Kanye’s fashion fixation. Lyrics include: “He introduced the skinny jeans to the rap scene/Then he wore a f***ing skirt on the video screen/Then he wore it again at a memorial/I can’t pretend this sh*t ain’t deplorable.”
Kim: Kanye, we need more attention. You know what happens when I don’t have enough attention.
Kanye: No, I’m not going to try and copy Beyoncé just because you want -
Kim: *Hand turns to stone* It’s already begun! Save me before it’s too late!
Kanye: Ugh, fine. But tonight, we get to watch your sex tape while we’re doing it.
