Kanye West's bid for world domination continues, with the launch of a themed dating app. Unsurprisingly, Taylor Swift fans are not welcome there.
Getting Yeezy With It
To be fair, it's not West's brainchild. Super-fans of the rapper created Yeezy Dating to meet like-minded people and possible paramours.
It's not unexpected, considering how diehard and niche his fan-base is. From live shows to sneakers and expensive yet strangely plain clothing lines, fans will do everything for Yeezus.
A dating site was naturally, the next progression. Now all of West's fans can mingle and fall in love in a safe space where their undying love for him isn't called into question.
The platform, called Yeezy Dating, is due to launch later this month.
"[Yeezy Dating is] a dating site for fans of the genius Mr. Kanye West," proclaims the platform.
Harry Dry, 21, resorted to crowdfunding to build the website. He created the funding page to bring his dream of a Kanye West-only dating site to fruition.
"I've been building a dating site for Kanye West fans for the last month or so and I'm very close to finishing it I just need a little help with the final development + marketing!" he wrote on the page.
Keeping The Receipts
Yeezy Dating is positioning itself as the most niche dating website in a market already crowded with similar online platforms. However, there's another interesting element in the themed site.
The platform will keep the long-running feud between Ye and Taylor Swift alive. The homepage states that fans of the singer are banned from using the site.
Showcasing just how serious it is, the ban even includes a requisite snake emoji. The symbol is synonymous with one of the biggest moments in the feud, when West's wife, Kim Kardashian West, revealed to the world that she'd kept "receipts" proving Swift was lying about never having approved the rapper's infamous verse on the hit song "Famous."
The app is still in development, but eager fans looking for love are encouraged to sign up for early access. There might be issues with that, however, as one Instagram post seems to suggest.
"Allow me in. Have been trying to join but [it's] not accepting my mail?" one user wrote on the app's official page.
Another questioned why someone would settle for a partner who loves Ye more than them.
"If she tells you she loves you more than Kanye lost [sic] Kanye, then she is the one" and "why couldn't this have been a thing sooner?" the user asked.
Hopefully, there won't be too many hiccups. In the meantime, fans can peruse the site's playlist, which features Frank Ocean's "Pyramaids" and West's "Gorgeous," from his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album, while they wait to meet their match.
