The Kim Kardashian Met Ball ban most likely will be back in effect next year because the last thing Anna Wintour needed was a proper reason to hate and Kanye West gave her one. Page Six is reporting that Kanye made a right ass of himself during his performance for the punk-themed event. Everything was pre-programmed ahead of time but Kanye threw it all out the window the second he took the stage. Instead of playing old hits and rocking the crowd with familiar beats he started screaming his new Paris sounds in the microphone in what one onlooker described as “screeching”. Kanye West also gave that lovely pep talk/shout out to baby mama and fashionably-challenged Kim Kardashian. I wish I could have seen Wintour’s head look like it was about to explode at that minute!
So suffice it to say they won’t be asked back next year? Why piss off Wintour? Kanye is a dumb ass. He has a clothing line coming out for crying out loud and he annoys the most important woman in the industry. And Kim needs those Met Ball invitations if she’s going to branch out from the reality star brand and become a major fashion power player like both she and Kanye want. It doesn’t make sense. I have to point out that Vogue and the Metropolitan Museum of Art have said they enjoyed Kanye’s performance but of course they are going to say that. Maybe they expected the drama. Kanye is not exactly the most reliable cannon on stage. But should he have played it safer knowing everything that was on the line for Kim? There’s no way Kim is ever going to get an invitation as anything other than someone’s plus one. Should she be kicking him in the ass right about now? I would. But she should probably kick herself in the ass first for ever thinking he’d put her needs before his ego.
