    The name his mom gave him was so cool…Kanye Omari West. What a slap in the face to her. Also, someone needs to do a mental health check on him…it’s not normal to walk around like that. I know it’s Halloween season and all but I doubt that’s why he’s wearing the mask.

    It’s weird…the KarJenners like to darken their skin 10 shades darker and yet here is Kanye walking around with a White man mask on. This family is so weird. I feel bad for their kids.

  2. Normades says:

    WTF do you think he and Cohen talk about? That has got to be one unhinged conversation.

    I feel bad for his kids as they might think he erased a big link between them. Probably a reason Kim is holding on to it.

    • minx says:

      I’ve come to love Michael Cohen, he is whip smart and very funny. He also calls bullsh*t, and I can’t believe he wouldn’t tell Kanye he looks as weird AF.

  3. Bendy Windy says:

    I’m fine with the name change. It’s a name people already know him by and recognizable. The mask thing is creepy, weird, and possibly self-hating, though.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Yes, I think Ye is certainly in a self loathing period but that hair cut looks like his hair is falling out, not a hair cut. As for the white mask with make up on it? It has eye makeup on, why? And more importantly, why the need for a mask, Ye?

      True, it’s Halloween but he is taking it up a few thousand notches…..

  4. smcollins says:

    The last of his screws officially came loose I see. Wow.

  5. nina says:

    Mental illness is not funny.

    • LovesitinNM says:

      Nope, not at all. It’s hard to be a friend to someone with schizophrenic affective disorder too. Once they know you know they stop letting you in. I am going through this with my friend.

  6. Lorelei says:

    That mask Kanye is wearing is NIGHTMARE FUEL

    • Maida says:

      Agreed. I really hope he’s getting some kind of support at this point. His behavior is getting increasingly odd.

    • ooshpick says:

      yeah just wrote a poem about it. so terrifying and electrifying and strange and nightmarish. it is actually like performance art but also I am genuinely concerned about him.

  7. Nicole says:

    Talk about self hatred. You are wearing a flesh colored mask that doesn’t match your own complexion. Go to therapy. Making long ass albums isn’t making the cut.

  8. LovesitinNM says:

    They look like two different masks, no? I keep zooming in on the details and they don’t match up to me. Anyway. Why does it feel like an anti-mask, medical freedom stunt? Like he wants people to say you can’t wear ‘that’ mask and then he like wins or something? I hope he’s alright inside.

  9. Rai says:

    Kanye is gonna Kanye and we need to come to terms with that simple thing. Dude is weird and won’t take his meds.

    I don’t feel bad for his kids at all… Kim seems to have them together and for all the Kdash crazy, they seem well adjusted. But if he won’t take his meds for his family, then a mask is the least of his concerns.

  10. MangoAngelesque says:

    Is it a bad thing to talk about Elizabeth Holmes’ voice? Genuinely asking, because I find things like that fascinating…

    I mean, it’s just such a specific sociopathic trick, and those are always intriguing.

    • Willow says:

      Well, she conned many people. And not just out of money, but deceived people about the results of medical tests and the accuracy of a medical device. Dangerous stuff. I think it’s certainly fair and important to look at how she did that. Her deep voice was just one part of that. So yes, within this context, definitely not a bad thing to talk about.

      • J.Mo says:

        To me, it’s not that her voice sounds deep, it’s the fact that it sounds fake, odd, and is inconsistent. It’s not like talking about a naturally deep voice.

      • MangoAngelesque says:

        @Willow — I totally agree…my comment may not have come across well, but I am firmly in the “absolutely worth talking about all aspects of that woman, including the sociopathic tricks she uses (like the weird voice)” camp.

        It just seemed like the blurb with the link was making it sound like “*sigh*, why are we discussing her voice still? So boring…” and I was confused by it 🙂

        Hearing the interviews and podcasts where she obviously slips and reverts to her regular voice and cadence makes her flat baritone even more jarring. She’s a weird bird, on top of everything else she did.

    • Maida says:

      Yes, what’s interesting about Holmes’ deep voice is that she seems to be intentionally creating it. It’s part of the persona she crafted as the leader of Theranos, along with the Steve Jobs black turtleneck and the messy bun. I don’t see why talking about her choice to deepen her voice would be inappropriate.

  11. Lory says:

    I see this and still marvel how Britney get Amanda Bynes have long term, emotionally abusive conservatorships yet Kanye is out there walking around still in charge of his own life.

    • ME says:

      He has a penis. That is why.

    • Jules says:

      The Kardashians have the means and the money to shut him up and lock him up if they want to, I think they struck some kind of deal because he knows way too much about how korrupt they are. And Kim wants him around somewhat for the kids and her IMAGE. Cannot compare these three different situations

      • Krystina says:

        …. Having the means and money doesn’t give them the opportunity to “lock him up”.
        As much as I don’t like the Kardashians, they’re NOT responsible for someone else’s mental health.

      • Jules says:

        Um, you completely missed my point, read again. Where did I say the Kardashians are responsible for his mental health? They only care about their image, and they do what they want.

    • Gobo says:

      Someone close has to want to exert that type of control. I am no fan of Kim, but I don’t think she is interested in holding that over the father of her children. I see people reducing it to gender and think thos is overly simplistic.

  12. ItReallyIsYouNotMe says:

    As someone with a naturally gravelly voice (I cried when my great aunt told me that I sounded like Lauren Bacall when I was 14), Elizabeth Holmes’ fake voice bothers the s’l* out of me. Why would you want to be mistaken for a man every time someone can’t see your face?

  13. Chelle says:

    Why is his neck also flesh-colored though? Are we sure that’s really Ye under that mask?

  14. Stef says:

    His behaviour has earned him a conservatorship!

    Oh wait, he’s not a woman, nevermind…SMH. Ye needs some serious help. He’s not OK.

  15. Zen says:

    I thought Kanye was pronounced con-yay. So is Ye pronounced yee or yay?

  16. L4frimaire says:

    His kids are old enough to be embarrassed by him.

  17. Ann H says:

    Ye Haw… Ye Haw… Ye Haw . Haha. I hope every body chants that to him in a donkey voice. lol.
