Kanye's Kilt Photos Mysteriously Disappear From Getty
It's with a heavy heart that we report that the world has lost one of its greatest images of hip-hop style modernity: Kanye West in his leather Givenchy kilt. The Scottish-inspired, fashion-forward getup first appeared on Kanye at last year's 121212 Concert. And after it selflessly gave us a Twitter feed, a meme generator and a steady supply of giggles, its images were all cruelly removed from Getty's photo wire service without warning.
The tragic loss might be related to something 'Ye said on New York's Hot 97 this week, when asked why he only came in at No. 7 in an MTV poll of the hottest MCs: "They don't like Givenchy-Kanye. They don't like Kanye in a kilt. They don't like Kanye in a relationship." Alas, the 'Ye giveth … and the 'Ye taketh away.
