BACK AT IT: The morning after the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute “Manus x Machina” Gala — for which he sported icy-blue contacts and matching, custom Balmain with his partner in crime, Kim Kardashian — Kanye West called into the Steve Harvey Morning Show to talk about his career, his controversies with Wiz Khalifa and Taylor Swift, and the upcoming tour for his seventh studio album, “The Life of Pablo.”
When Harvey pressed for exact tour dates, West replied: “My tour game is strong,” adding that he’s looking to start in September. “We’re working on some of the ideas right now. I’m trying to inspire these kids the way Disney inspired me,” he said. The spring 2017 installment of New York Fashion Week will run Sept. 7 to Sept. 15. — so could West be planning another blowout New York Fashion Week spectacle not unlike his most recent performance for Yeezy Season 3? Only time will tell.
Following the Met Gala on Monday night, West sent a series of tweets thanking Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing for his hard work: “Thank you Olivier for making 4 dresses for Kim to choose from which we chopped 2 in half….and thank you for turning my personal jean jacket into a couture piece.”
