Kanye West at Victoria Secret Fashion Show 2011

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?

Is Land

Has anyone seen my dream island? Word is that it’s floating in the sky anywhere from Britain to the Czech Republic. ‘Is Land’ is a seven meter wide, helium filled, polyurethane art project that was put together by two Royal College of Art graduates, Sarah Cockings and Laurence Symonds. The two artists created Is Land for about £9,000 and were flying it at the Secret Garden Party when, according to their website,

“Due to ignorant vandals, the original Is Land is currently floating at an unknown height somewhere within the atmosphere.”

Using atmospheric data, the creators have predicted that Is Land could be as far away as the Czech Republic, but there really haven’t been any positive sightings yet and they are hopeful that it is still floating above Britain somewhere.

Cockings and Symonds are hopeful that their creation will be found soon as they intended to pack it up and send it to the US for Burning Man in a few weeks. Regardless as to whether they find it or not, they have started work on a new creation with financial donations from the Secret Garden Party and gracious donors on their website, http://www.is-land.co.uk.
