He deserves to be revered; Kanye’s performance on SNL was epic to the power of awesome. What appears to be a recreation of the “Portrait of Power” that disappointed, disgruntled, confuzzled and awed many, is surely Kanye’s way of showing us that he’s at the peak of his craft and he really, really likes red.
I’m not a watcher of TV, per se, and the only time I’ve ever tuned into SNL was while watching a Britney Spears DVD I bought years ago and am still the proud owner of. However, I wouldn’t have minded too much if I’d been in front of a TV to watch Kanye’s highly entertaining performance unfold.
Besides the expertly executed art direction, seeing Kanye really get into the zone of his music is what I love most about this performance; everything this man does adds reasons to the long list of why I can’t wait for his album to drop on November 22–it’s going to be a long wait, but in the meantime, I’ll happily take this.
