Kanye West Gets Upset After Being Mocked For Wearing A Skirt

He’s Kim Kardashian’s baby daddy, but clearly fatherhood is far from Kanye West’s mind right now. Instead the rapper is allegedly more concerned with ensuring that pictures of him wearing a leather skirt (lirt?) – designed by Riccardo Tisci – are  removed from  a picture agency’s database, in case, you know, he gets teased for wearing girly clothes and what not.

Admittedly Yeezy isn’t known for his fashion faux-pas, after all he’s collaborated with big names like Louis Vuitton, Giuseppe Zanotti, and has his own clothing line – DW by Kanye West.  However his insecurities clearly got the best of him, and according to The Sun, West approached Getty Images and told them to delete every photograph of him wearing the skirt at the Hurricane Sandy benefit concert in 2012. (Yes, he’s been losing sleep over it for this long.)

His fellow musicians might be to blame for his embarrassment, though. Chris Brown appaz ridiculed West on Twitter, while Brand Nubian rapper Lord Jamar took it one step further and posted a track online called ‘Lift Up Your Skirt’, in which he raps:

‘He introduced the skinny jeans to the rap scene/Then he wore a f*****g skirt on the video screen/Then he wore it again at a memorial/I can’t pretend this s**t ain’t deplorable.’

I have a feeling that if Scott Disick had jumped aboard the skirt-wearing train then this story might have a different ending. Scottye skirts, anyone?
