(Kan)Ye West, rapper and inimitable genius. An inescapable presence in the media due to his odd behaviour, which leads you to wonder, what is this guy doing? Seemingly 100% himself, but how much of that is just his smart way of dealing with the spotlight that is always pointed straight at him?
His hand holds the classic gesture often featured in paintings of Christ. With a tiny little change it forms the crossed fingers, symbol of a false promise. A little lie, a twisted truth. Or does is symbolize a wish for succes and luck? It is in that dual meaning that Kanye finds himself. His bi-polar disorder is enlarged by the media, every moment captured and shown. Is he in control, or is it some force he doesn’t quite understand himself that takes over?
His unconventional behavior raises questions. Genius or loony? Melt-down or Turn-up? Does he mean everything he says, or is it all just a smart move?
