Kylie Jenner’s insane shoe closet and more of today’s news.
Kanye Shares His Truth
Headlining Manila's Paradise International Music Festival on Saturday, Kanye West delivered long-winded musings on his first live performance of "Famous," the passion behind his artistic endeavors and, naturally, Taylor Swift. Bringing up the infamous 2009 MTV Video Music Awards incident in which he interrupted Tay's acceptance speech, Yeezy explained that being a true artist means you must "say what you f**king feel."
"You know the night I'm talking about, when I just said what everybody else was thinking. So if I get in trouble for saying the truth, what's being said the rest of the time?" While we weren't expecting an apology, it's a bit surprising that he dug the hole deeper, seven years later. See his entire explanation, plus a clip from one of the three times he performed "Famous" that night. [Harper's Bazaar]

Is Fashion Killing Creativity?
Raf Simons opened up about his recent textile design project and how the pace of the fashion industry can hinder creativity rather than encourage it. "These days it’s a different way of consuming [culture]," said the Belgian designer. "It's looking and then swiping to the next thing—looking, next; looking, next; looking, next; next, next, next, next. There’s less dialogue and engagement in general. … Everyone is paying attention to the wrong thing in my opinion. What we should ask is will we have enough creative people who are strong enough and willing to do what is necessary right now to follow that madhouse."
With the fashion industry very much in flux, Simons raises an excellent point of whether or not designers are right to be amenable to the changes or if they're compromising the integrity of their creative process. [The Telegraph]
