In his latest Twitter rant, Kanye West was driving and felt inspired - or dissuaded, rather - to school the world about how to have style and be fashionable, since he is a clothing designer now.
Just driving through the city and I see a few thing [sic] I hate... 34-year-old West tweeted on Saturday from New York City before listing all of his sartorial hates.
Here are some of the rules of fashion according to Kanye.
I hate button up shirts with hoodies.
I hate hoodies with sport coats.
I hate sport coats with button up shirts, jeans and dress shoes.
I hate khaki trench coats with jeans and off brand work out sneakers.
I hate khaki cargo shorts.
I Hate big ass striped scarves.
I hate long ass sideburns with the line up RnB beard, West concluded.
...all this in 5 blocks, West wrapped up his rant. Detest. #I'm on my snob.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the rant is actually just a portion of his new track, I Don't Like, for his upcoming album, G.O.O.D. Music.
The rant comes from the same guy caught just two weekends ago with new girlfriend Kim Kardashian who was the victim of a near wardrobe malfunction. West was getting out of his Maybach and struggled to keep his leather pants up, exposing black briefs and bare skin.
He was getting out of the car and his belt got pulled by this hook on the car door and he was trying to pull it up quick and his belt was really heavy, girlfriend Kardashian defended to E! News. It was a wardrobe malfunction, but it wasn't anything intentional. It was not scandalous.
Back in January, West went on a similar - but much longer - rant about fashion, namely about rumors misconstrued about his fashion line debut at Paris Fashion Week in October 2011. After a fake Twitter account was started in the name of his clothing company, @DWbyKanye, West tweeted over 70 times, according to Fashionista, about his experience working in fashion and growing up watching his mother, the late Donda West, get dressed.
I remember being 5 years old picking and my mother taking me with her shopping at the discount fur spots. She said I would always point to the most expensive furs even as a child LOL, West wrote.
West even divulged exactly where he learned his rules of fashion: From his mother.
For the first 16 or 17 years of my life the only thing...I knew about my woman's clothing was what my Mom would wear. I guess some critics would joke that I still don't know anything LOL.
Before designing women's clothes for his own collection, West designed a shoe line for Louis Vuitton and propositioned Nike for a deal, for which he was unsuccessful.
I begged Louis Vuitton to let me do more shoes after my shoes sold out in two weeks, and they did not, West said according to E! News. I begged Nike, I begged this company to let me do it. And I took out motherf--king loans to get the best models, to get the best designers, to get the best venue. I gave you everything that I had.
When he debuted his clothing line at Paris Fashion Week in 2011, Women's Wear Daily called it neither triumph nor trainwreck despite West's plea to reporter to be easy when critiquing his collection.
This is my first collection. Please be easy, West said after the show, according to WWD. Please give me a chance to grow. This is not some celebrity s--t. I don't f--k with celebrities. I f--k with the creatives in this room-the amazing people who spend every day of their life trying to make the world a more beautiful place.
If you're going to dish it, you better learn to take it, Kanye.
