Yesterday, Kanye pseudo-kidnapped a horde of fashion editors, put them on a bus that took them to an undisclosed location (which turned out to be Roosevelt Island, also known as the middle of nowhere) and made them wait for hours before allowing them to witness the spectacle.
Fun fact: you don't mess with fashion people. They're a pretty vocal bunch, even more so when trapped in 90+ degree heat with no shade and nowhere to escape to. The backdrop of New York and the East River might've been something worth putting up on Snapchat, but even that won't appease a bunch of people stuck on an island while dressed to the nines.
Naturally, fashion people weren't pleased. And they made that known.
Been on the #YeezyBus for over an hour and no one has taken the initiative to ask for the aux cord smh.

I'd like to see Kanye and Vanessa Beecroft stand in the hot sun in nude leotards for three hours. #YeezySeason4
