Watch Kanye West Perform in a Mask and Straightjacket

Kanye West Straightjacket

Don’t ever accuse Kanye West of not knowing how to put on a show. After the maximalist lazer pyramid carnival that was the Watch The Throne tour, Yeezy is taking crazy in another direction, one that makes him look like the abominable snowman en route to the club (do you see that chain?).

While it’s easy and a great time to mock the above video, tell me that stage doesn’t look beautiful, that it doesn’t effectively convey the sense of loneliness present in all of West’s music—especially 808s & Heartbreak. Make sure you catch the moment after 11:20 when Kanye takes off his mask and gazes out at the crowd, looking bored on stage as only a superstar can.
