Kanye West has found another thing to complain about. The International recording artist and husband of reality personality Kim Kardashian has revealed in an interview with Showstudio that he believes that he was discriminated upon in the fashion industry for not being gay.
"I felt that I got discriminated against in fashion also for not being gay whereas in music, you definitely get discriminated against if you are gay." Kanye went to explain further about the culture of different forms of discrimination inherent within different industries and what it takes to break the barriers with each one. He said:
It takes some amazing talents to really break down that barrier. People don’t have a problem with white rappers now because Eminem ended up being the greatest artist and everybody thought that when Frank Ocean’s album dropped, that people were going to be like, ‘No, this is bad for his career,’ and he’s one of the greatest writers of all time... I feel like it’s so cliche to speak about him particularly related to this subject but there always are the people who broke the ground and I think he’s the one that broke the ground. People don’t give a fuck. They love his music so so much. It’s the people that break the stereotypes that make history but I just thought it was interesting to point that out about the fashion world and the music world and just culturally, it’s reverse discrimination.
So what do you think? Does he have a point about the different forms of discrimination inherent in this industries? Do you think he did face this kind of difficulties in his foray into fashion ?
