This morning Daily Telegraph social/gossip column ‘Sydney Confidential’ published an article about Big Day Out headliner Kanye West titled Kanye West is straight into local fashion. Here are a few observations about the story, all of which we have numbered on the screen shot below for your reference:
1. SPELLING: The photo caption has Harper’s Bazaar spelled: “Harpers Bizaar“.
2. MISINFORMATION: This is nitpicking, but Christine Centenera is not Kanye’s “personal stylist”. She acted as a consultant on his womenswear line and has a continuing role as adviser for his label. Kanye does not have a stylist at all. A source confirmed that “100% he does not have a stylist”.
3. INCORRECT: Again, this is completely hypercritical, but Kanye West’s fashion label is not called “KW by Kanye West” and it never has been. It’s just called “Kanye West”.
4. RACIAL SLUR: Direct quote from article: While his contemporaries tend to head out for a fried chicken feed, Big Day Out headliner Kanye West made a beeline for Sydney’s fashion hub within hours of landing.” And just in time for Australia Day.
I’ve made spelling mistakes and typos and put incorrect facts in stories before but holy shit you guys. That article is pretty gosh darn WTF-terrible in so many ways.
It makes this ad look like an innocuous sweetie pie:
