Remember the hand-painted Hermés Birkin 'Ye gave to his lady love for Christmas?
Of course you do! Those gnarly nudie-monster chicks were seared into your mind like grill marks on a footlong slobber sausage!
Well, guess what? Kanye West totally knew everyone would be up in arms about his present!!! He PREDICTED it!
According to George Condo — the artist Yeezus commissioned to create Kim Kardashian's horrifying bag — they both new what the public's reaction would be!
In a recent issue of W, George admitted:
“Kanye and I both knew immediately that people who knew our collaboration would think it was fun but that Kim’s fan base would go berserk… The whole point was to take an icon of consumerism and change it, which is like blasphemy. ‘You can’t do this!’ It short circuits people’s concept of what’s untouchable, which is why it was fun to do. If I had just done it and put it in my closet, it wouldn’t mean a thing… But when you stick that bag in the hands of Kim Kardashian, well, then you create a whole different atmosphere. It’s about context.”
So there you have it!
It was all about context!
And trolling, apparently, too, LOLz!!
