Kanye West Yeezus Tour 5
Oh my!

Kanye said that rappers are the new rockstars and he's proving just that, with his new punk-rock/heavy metal influenced Yeezus merchandise.


The tour just kicked off on Saturday night in Seattle and before we could even roll out of the weekend Kanye had folks buzzing after he brought out "white Jesus" and his own female disciples dressed in flesh-toned body suits. If you thought that was something to talk about, his merch will have you stopping and saying, "What the?!" since he decided to go with themes that feature Confederate flags, skulls and skeletons, dark religious imagery, and Native American symbolism.

The shirts, which run from $30-$40 each, were reportedly designed by artist Wes Lang.

I looked back at the hotel, once, then twice, truly questioning if I was going to abandon all of the rules I had set for myself prior to leaving for my first solo trip. I had watched Taken, received countless lectures about the dangers of solo traveling as a young single woman, was fully aware that what I was about to do could backfire in my face, and yet, here I was throwing all of my self-preservation and home-training out of the window.

"Are you coming?" he asked, opening the car door for me.
