DEAR KANYE

I HAVE BEEN A HUGE SUPPORTER OF YOUR SINCE YOU FIRST PUT OUT THAT MIXTAPE WITH YOUR BRUSED AND SWOLLEN FACE ON IT. I WILL OPENLY ADMIT THAT YOU HAVE INSPIRED A LOT OF WHAT I DO AND THE WAY I LOOK AT LIFE. I WENT TO THE YEEZUS CONCERT AND HONESTLY I LIKED THE GLOW IN THE DARK TOUR A BIT MORE.   I MAY BE A LITTLE BIAS THOUGH BECAUSE OF WHERE I WAS THEN AND WHERE I AM NOW IN MY LIFE. WHEN I SAW THE GLOW IN THE DARK TOUR I BELIEVE I WAS 17 OR 18 AND IT WAS  THE MOST INSPIRING THING I’VE EVER SEEN. THE STAGE, THE DISCO BALLS FALLING OUT THE SKY, THE PYRO, THE FUCKIN’ COMPUTER VOICE THING THAT NARRATED THE ENTIRE SHOW. DON’T GET ME WRONG, THERE WAS A LOT OF BRILLIANCE THAT WENT INTO THIS YEEZUS TOUR. YOU ARE DEFINITELY PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES ON FASHION AND CULTURE IN GENERAL. NEVER HAS A RAPPER (AND I HATE TO CATEGORIZE PEOPLE) TAKEN IT THIS FAR ARTISTICALLY AND I APPLAUD YOU FOR THAT. I HONESTLY THOUGHT THAT I WOULD HAVE ENJOYED SEEING 11 WHITE GIRLS HOLDING UP A BLACK MAN INTO THE STRATOSPHERE MORE INTRIGUING! THE MASKS ARE BEAUTIFUL AND DEFINITELY ADD SOMETHING TO THE PERFORMANCE BUT IN MY OPINION THEY ALSO TAKE AWAY FROM IT. THE COOLEST THING ABOUT SEEING SOMEONE PERFORM IS SEENG THEM! SEEING THEIR EYES OPEN AND CLOSE AND THE DRAMATIC FACIAL EXPRESSIONS THEY MAKE. OVERALL, IT WAS A GREAT SHOW. I GUESS THE REASON WHY I MAY NOT HAVE RECEIVED IT AS YOU INTENDED BECAUSE I AM AN ARTIST AND ARTISTS ALWAYS OVERANALYZE EVERYTHING. ARTISTS ARE CRITICS AND THEY ARE ALWAYS EVALUATING THINGS TO SEE WHAT THEY COULD HAVE ALTERED TO MAKE IT BETTER. I GUESS THATS MY PROBLEM NOWADAYS. I LOOK AT EVERYTHING AND WONDER WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE IF MY FINGERPRINT WAS ON IT. COME TO THINK ABOUT IT, IF THIS WAS MY CONCERT, I MAY HAVE WORN THE MASK TO!

SINCERELY,

A FORMER KANYE WEST FAN
