WEST HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA – Fans of Kanye West were delighted with a rapidly circulating image of the rapper making his first appearance since being hospitalized on Thursday (December 8). The Chicago superstar was an attendee at a West Hollywood art exhibition and was snapped in a candid photo sporting a brand new blond hairstyle.
Yeezy reportedly visited the MOCA Pacific Design Center to check out designer Rick Owens’ “Furniture” exhibition, which doesn’t open to the public until December 17, according to the museum’s website. Italian artist Giovanni Bassan captured the photo and posted it to his currently-private Instagram page with the caption “K’s In Da House.”
Completing Kanye’s new look was his kicked-back apparel of a simple gray sweatshirt, dark pants, and white sneakers.
The previous night (December 7), Kanye’s friend (and Justin Beiber’s manager) Scooter Braun briefly commented on Ye’s condition, telling Entertainment Tonight, “[Kanye] is a fantastic individual and I am blessed to call him my friend. He’s doing great, thank you.”
Recently, West was reported to be working alongside Pete Rock with a possible nod to the rumored Turbo Grafx 16 album.
