The masked man strikes again.
Kanye West made an unexpected cameo at the 2022 BET Awards on Sunday night. He was there to award Sean “Diddy” Combs with a Lifetime Achievement Award, and he did it while wearing one of his distinctive face masks.
This covering, on the other hand, did not have any type of ventilation, and watchers at home could tell that the rap superstar was finding it difficult to get through his speech while wearing the style. Ye topped the disguise with a pair of black sunglasses for an even more clandestine image.
“Kanye West is about to pass out on stage while wearing his badass mask and attire,” said the audience member. One person wrote, “He breathing heavy af,” while another made light of the situation by saying, “Kanye West is up there breathing like Darth Vador with this mask on.”
A third individual noted, “Kanye West can’t even breathe beneath all of this bulls—t,” while a fourth person joked, “The wardrobe guys neglected to make holes in Kanye West’s mask so that he could breathe…
He Came So Close to Passing Out in His Attempt to Be Unique.
The Grammy winner, who is 45 years old, hid not only his face but also his entire body by donning an unusual mask, which he accessorised with a leather bomber jacket from Hood by Air (which cost $1,800), waterskiing gloves (which cost $39), and Balenciaga Steroid Boots (which cost $1,590).
During his concerts over the previous decade, West has used masks on and off, including a number of glittering Maison Margiela versions during his 2013-2014 Yeezus tour.
More recently, he has begun donning face coverings even when he is not performing onstage. For example, he sat front row at a Balenciaga show in 2021 wearing a cat-printed mask by the fashion house, and he has been seen stepping out in various religious-themed versions around New York City and Los Angeles. On occasion, he has even been seen wearing prosthetic faces.
Michael Cohen, a former associate of Trump’s, was quoted in an earlier issue of Page Six saying that the “Heartless” musician wore the increasingly weird masks in an effort to seek some privacy after being besieged by fans.
During the portion of the BET Awards that was devoted to paying respect to Sean “Diddy” Combs for receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award, Kanye West made an unexpected cameo. West delivered a statement that lasted for five minutes in which he discussed the duo’s connection and stated that Diddy “understood contracts in a way that a lot of us still don’t. comprehended monetary matters in a manner that many of us still do not. Even now, I seek guidance from him whenever I can. He was the impetus behind many of my decisions. So many of the decisions I’ve made in my life. The choices made by my wife. And so we reach this point. Thank you so much for that, Puff. See it in its entirety down below.
In addition, Jay-Z contributed a video to the evening’s Diddy tributes, and a number of other artists, including Mary J. Blige, Jodeci, Busta Rhymes, Nas, Lil’ Kim, and Faith Evans, made cameo appearances.
Since he cancelled his appearance at Coachella earlier this year, West has avoided the public eye as much as possible. He shared the music video for the song “Life of the Party,” which is included on Donda. The song was previously shared online (Deluxe).
The music video includes deepfake performances that are based on West’s upbringing; however, André 3000’s verse is not included; this is a decision that André has attributed to West’s stance against swearing. West has also recently made an appearance on “True Love” by XXXTentacion, and he served as a producer on “Blood Stain” by Consequence and “It’s Almost Dry” by Pusha-T.
