I’ve been watching lately how much fun certain media have had with Kanye’s break down. I don’t think it’s ok. Not only that it’s not ok, but every media that published it in a derogatory way should be ashamed. People say he has all the money and he will deal with it easily, that’s not right. So why does it bother me so much?
Well, I have been diagnosed with ADD and dyslexia and since my childhood, it has caused so many frustrations with me. Often in life l didn’t know how to cope with it and it led to all sorts of things from panic attacks to outbursts of rage. All quite common for people with similar diagnoses. I know many others battling these conditions or many other friends and acquaintances suffering with these or often more severe symptoms. They all have been frustrated on occasion and broken down sometimes.
In today’s world our teens battle with anxiety, depression and the suicide rate has gone up significantly in recent years. What are we showing to them? That if you feel frustrated you are not good enough? If you break down or can’t cope you should be laughed at? This could be any of our children today or tomorrow.
Today for support, not only to Kanye and his amazing talent but for millions of people around the world who fight frustrations on a daily basis I’m wearing my “I feel like Pablo” hoodie. I love Kanye’s music and I love his fashion too. I think he is one of those troubled artists who are often misunderstood but in their soul amazingly good. I admire his work and his ideas, I admire him for going against the stream, saying what people think and not being afraid to be hated. I love that he makes fun of himself and others and most of all I love his dedication, to his work and his family.
I hope he will be his old self again and we will see some of the amazing things I’m sure he still has to offer.
At the end I would like to add that my outfit, although inspired by his talent is my view of contemporary fashion and the influence of the Eastern European trend that has hit the runways. Vetemans and Gosha Rubchinskiy are the aesthetics of today and whether or not you can embrace it into your own fashion expression they will be around for at least the next season or two.
I hope you like my interpretation of it and I hope you have a nice week.
With all the love,
