Kanye West performed “Stronger” at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2011 last night, four years after he backed out of the 2007 show in dealing with the loss of his mother.
The sentiment is nice, but the presentation is woefully awkward. Kanye: “I love my dead mother so much, I’m gonna rap to these supermodels.”
The performance may have come four years late, but it was plenty dope. Note that even Kanye can’t peel his eyes away around 1:50. Watch it below:
Hurricane Katrina, Taylor Swift at the VMAs, and now Victoria’s Secret Models – Ye’s upstaged them all. He has such a knack for soapboxing at the wrong moment – would his mother approve?
