If Kanye West had been wearing leather jogging pants, he might not have suffered a wardrobe malfunction.
Unfortunately, the rapper wore regular leather pants onstage Saturday, Oct. 19, at the kickoff of his Yeezus tour in Seattle, and those trousers ripped right down the crotch mid-performance!
This wardrobe snafu, however, was hardly even attention grabbing compared to the full-face, bedazzled black mask Yeezy had on—one of many he wore throughout the evening.
The "I Am a God" musician even had a meeting with Jesus during his sold-out show—not the real son of God, of course, but a barefoot, bearded man dressed in a long white robe acting as the Alpha and Omega. As the Messiah came forward, 'Ye—wearing a regal robe himself—asked, "White Jesus, is that you? I've been looking for you my whole life."
Acting surprised by the religious figure's presence, 'Ye dropped a couple of f-bombs, then realized, "I just said this s--t in front of Jesus!"
But Mr. Christ reassuringly told Kanye, "I didn't come here to make bad people feel good. I came here to make dead people alive—to show people the light."
"That's all I need from you is to show people the light—the light of truth in you," J.C. concluded, then walked away, leaving a stunned Kanye standing in silence. The rapper dropped to his knees in awe, then launched into a performance of "Jesus Walks."
This isn't the first time Kanye's compared himself to Jesus, and it probably won't be the last. He explained to Jimmy Kimmel during their recent interview, "..when I compare myself to Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Howard Hughes, David Stern, Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Jesus…these are my heroes. This is the type of impact I want to make on the earth."
"Taste, culture, art, just the quality of life," he added, "this is what I'm here to do."
