Kanye and DONDA this week unveiled their new line of G.O.O.D. Music clothing. The collection consists of pretty standard streetwear items: t-shirts, hoodies, sweats and hats, bearing the G.O.O.D. Music logos.
Last week, Kanye West proposed to girlfriend Kim Kardashian at San Francisco’s AT&T Park, renting the entire ballpark and hiring an orchestra for the occasion. A whole mob of friends was on hand to watch the overblown-but-weirdly-romantic occasion, and one of those onlookers posted a shaky cell-phone video of the proposal. As Billboard points out, it turns out that the person filming was Chad Hurley, one of the co-founders of YouTube, and Kanye is now suing him for leaking the video. The lawsuit alleges that Hurley was not invited but that he was allowed to stay because he signed a non-disclosure agreement. But Hurley still posted the video on MixBit, his new video-sharing website. See if you get invited anywhere anytime soon, Chad Hurley! Of course, the real reason for Kanye’s rancor is both obvious and depressing: The video wasn’t supposed to link because the E! Network had cameras on hand, and they filmed the proposal for inclusion on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. So this whole thing counts as a spoiler for that show. Be warned.
UPDATE: Kanye’s label has released a statement:
Yesterday, on the road to Vancouver, a truck carrying The Yeezus Tour’s custom-made video truss and 60-ft circular LED screen was in an accident that damaged the gear beyond repair. This gear is central to the staging of The Yeezus Tour, and central to the creative vision put forth by Kanye West and his design team at DONDA. As a result of this event, it is impossible to put on the show and The Yeezus Tour will be postponed until these essential pieces can be reengineered and refabricated. Kanye West will not compromise on bringing the show, as it was originally envisioned and designed, to his fans. The Vancouver, Denver and Minneapolis dates have been postponed. Further details on the affected tour dates will be announced shortly.
Kanye recently sat down with Ryan Seacrest to talk about his proposal to Kim and their impending wedding, the engagement ring that took 4 jewelers to perfect, how he conceives his performances, whether or not being a father will inform his lyrics and much more.
