Kanye West Just Covered His Entire Body in Silver Paint and Fans Have a Lot to Say About This
This past weekend, the rapper took many people by surprise after he stepped out in Miami donning an all-silver outfit for his brand new opera, Mary.
Not only did he sport a silver jumpsuit-like robe, West went even further by covering his entire face in silver paint, taking the idea of dripping in silver to a whole new level.
West went all out for his latest opera performance
If you thought Yeezy merchandise was a little out there, just wait until you catch a glimpse of West’s latest performance getup.
On December 8, the Jesus Is King rapper turned heads while visiting the Marine Stadium in Miami, Florida donning a head-to-toe silver look for the premiere of his brand new opera, Mary.
The star stepped out in a billowing silver jumpsuit-like robe as well as a full face of silver paint in order to make this opera performance something the audience would never forget.
Seeing as though Ye didn’t appear in his first opera, Nebuchadnezzar, he decided to do things a little differently this time around by taking on the lead role in Mary, which re-tells the story of Jesus’ birth.
Though West definitely was a showstopper in this look, he wasn’t the only one dripping in silver during the opera.
It turns out that all of the supporting characters and performers also donned head-to-toe silver ensembles, which made them look like walking Christmas ornaments.
While the looks were definitely out there, the opera didn’t disappoint in the slightest.
According to Pitchfork, the performance took place on floating barges and featured several of Kanye’s older tracks such as, “Devil in a New Dress,” “Love Lockdown,” “I Thought About Killing You,” “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” and “Power,” as well as a few Christmas classics.
Fans are hilariously roasting West for his robot-like appearance
When it comes to Kanye West, many of us are used to him showcasing his unique style in the public eye.
The rapper hasn’t been afraid to step out of the box when fashion is involved and his all-silver getup further proves just how much he enjoys standing out in a crowd.
Though West has donned many—and we mean many—interesting styles over the years, nothing will ever be able to top this all-silver ensemble.
After photos of his Mary opera costume surfaced online, fans immediately took to Twitter to roast the rapper for his unique/unexpected performance look.
“If Silver Lining was a person! Kanye West…” one fan tweeted.
Some have even speculated that Ye drew some inspiration from the Marvel Comics superhero Silver Surfer, who’s known for his metallic uniform.
“Alexa play Silver Surfer by Kanye West,” a Twitter user joked.
“@kanyewest really out here looking like the silver surfer,” another fan wrote.
“Marvel looking to cast Kanye West to play the Silver Surfer,” one person noted.
Though many fans still can’t get over West’s chrome appearance, it seems like he was just living his best life covered in silver.
