Why I Don't Miss the Old Kanye

Much has been said about Kanye West’s most recent album “The Life of Pablo,” from the media baiting theatrics of its release to its qualifications as an album as we traditionally know it.  However, one thing is certain: gone is the “old Kanye” of College Dropout, Late Registration, 808’s and Heartbreak, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and even Yeezus.  Welcome the “new Kanye, the bad mood Kanye, the always rude Kanye, spaz in the news Kanye” because he’s not going anywhere -and nor should he.

Confession: I initially titled this article, “Why Vetements is Everything Non-Fashion People Hate about Fashion.”  And it’s true: selling a DHL t-shirt for $330 that can be purchased from the delivery service for $14.99 screams insular fashion industry without relevance to the American consumer.

On Dating

Image from Refinery 29
It was 8 p.m. on a Wednesday night.  After right swiping and some witty text exchanges, I found myself at an intimate bar on Bowery awaiting Greg*, a 24 year old from UPenn working in finance, the classic Hinge character.  We could already applaud ourselves for successfully taking it offline, a surprising feat in and of itself.  And by all standard measures, it was a success -we had great conversation (he was entertained by the fact that a 2 Chainz concert topped my list of best live performances) and I didn’t have to pull the my-roommate-got-locked-out trick to ditch.  But even after four drinks and a few hours together, I knew he was not Mr. Right.
