Kanye West is continuing his recovery at home, following his hospitalization at UCLA Medical Center for exhaustion, but that doesn’t mean he’s housebound.
On Thursday, West made his first public appearance since Nov. 21, with a trip to MOCA Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood. While there, he previewed the exhibition Rick Owens: Furniture ahead of its opening next week, E! News reports.
But the most surprising thing about his outing was not West’s destination but rather the reported change in his appearance. According to E! News, he was seen wearing a gray sweater with the word “Famous” sprawled across it, as well as sweatpants and white sneakers, and — wait for it — he was also sporting a blond hairstyle.
Fans are freaking out, and Twitter has been buzzing with reactions to West’s change in appearance (some of which are very harsh).
It appears that some of West’s fans are convinced he’s taken his admiration for Frank Ocean to the next level with this look. Ocean’s new album is titled Blonde.
Altering his appearance is not the only change West has been making to his life in recent weeks. According to another E! News report, he has been working on creating new music from a temporary studio in his Bel Air home.
Whatever West is getting up to, the most important thing is that he has a strong support system to help him through this difficult time. Despite the rumors that he and Kim Kardashian West are getting a divorce, she is determined to remain by his side.
A source recently told E! News, “Kim will of course always stay by Kanye’s side and support him and help him through it all.” We’re glad to hear it!
