Kanye Wants Critics to ‘Shut the F@ck Up!”
Rucuss staffOctober 4, 2011
Kanye West did what he does best.
The outspoken rapper gave critics a piece of his mind during a profanity laced speech at his after party. West debuted his highly anticipated womenswear line “Dw” during Paris Fashion Week.
A bevy of celebs attended the runway show, including Ciara, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Lindsay Lohan, Jared Leto and Anna Wintour but there support couldn’t save him. Many critics slammed West’s collection.
West, who used plenty of ‘F’ bombs throughout his rant, gave partygoers at his after party an ear full. He told the crowd that his line isn’t just about using his celebrity to sell clothes. He ripped the naysayers and those that tried to just get him a celebrity deal:
“Thank you for anybody that didn’t believe, because they motivated us to break our boundaries. We don’t know what the reviews will be, we don’t know what they will say, but I got a chance to go to Italy and feel those fabrics. I begged Louis Vuitton to let me do more shoes after my shoes sold out in two weeks, and they did not. I begged Nike, I begged this company to let me do it. And I took out motherf—ing loans to get the best models, to get the best designers, to get the best venue. I gave you everything that I had.
“This is my first collection. Please be easy. Please give me a chance to grow. This is not some celebrity s—. I don’t f— with celebrities. I f— 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.
“The amount of people that tried to get me a celebrity f—ing deal. They said, ‘You need to do boot-cut jeans, or you won’t sell.’ Shut the f— up !
Then Kanye’s DJ played Otis Redding’s “Try a Little Tenderness.” .
Rumors are also circulating that he and model Chanel Iman might be an item. Iman, who walked in his show, spent a lot of time trying to impress West over the weekend. She even dressed in his clothing and escorted him to his afterparty.
“He’s a real charmer,” Iman said. “I think he’s very smart, he really goes for it. He always likes the fly projects.”
