Kanye West Speaks Out on YEEZY Season 4 Show Criticism

“I want y’all to look at it with your eyes and not with your ears.”

YEEZY Season 4 continues to be the most talked about affair of New York Fashion Week — now Kanye West himself has spoken. In light of criticism over both his apparel and the actual presentation, the musician-cum-designer addressed his own feelings just one day later at a ‘Saint Pablo’ tour stop in Washington D.C. “Today I need to hear these songs,” Ye paused. “I needed to rehear the lyrics that I was saying or what I was feeling when I wrote these songs and had to overcome these certain controversies and whatever happens in life.”

This marks the first time Kanye talked publicly about the show, adding “I feel like the Cavs last year when Kyrie got hurt. Y’all know what I am talking about, I am talking about the fashion show yesterday. I want y’all to look at it with your eyes and not with your ears.” The day after that concert, he then took to Twitter to proclaim how he wants to “make people feel great” and thank everyone for joining him on his creative journey.

See Kanye’s 14-minute speech and tweets, and then read his collaborator Vanessa Beecroft’s statement — in which she attributes emotional stress as the reason why some models passed out — here.
