Everything That Happened at Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3

Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 fashion show and The Life of Pablo listening party did not disappoint. The event was held at a sold out Madison Square Garden in New York City. According to a Tidal press release, 20 million people also tuned into the live stream. New You was in attendance and we have the inside scoop.


Before the show began, we witnessed a huge parachute in the middle of the arena. Nobody knew what was under it. We later found out that the thousand models Kanye hired were under it.

The show was scheduled for 4 P.M. but didn’t start until 40 minutes later. The Kardashians walked in around 4:35 P.M. (including little North West), all dressed in white fur coats, and the crowd went nuts! Kim was blonde. Also a big surprise, Lamar Odom was in the house! This was his first public appearance since his overdose. Caitlyn Jenner and Corey Gamble were both there with Kris Jenner.

Kanye kicked off the show by telling the audience, “Feel free to dance!” And they did. The first song he played was Ultralight Bling. He continued to play a few songs in a row while the models stood there solemnly. The models looked bored, tired, and scared to move. The clothing was very…Kanye. The models did not move until the end of the show as per Kanye’s pre show instructions.

After a few songs, he asked the audience, “Tell me how y’all feel. Did I deliver on my promise on the album?” The crowd cheered. He then asked the crowd about the clothes this season. Again everyone cheered! Yeezy then went on to say how people think because he’s a celebrity that this sh*t is easy to do. Well it’s not. He then thanked his wife, his wife’s sisters, Vanessa Beecroft, Adidas, and a few other people. Everyone started chanting “No Nike!!” Watch the full speech below.


A few other Kanye surprises: He promised that Adidas is going to make more Air Yeezy’s and at lower prices! And another dream of his besides running for President in 2020? To be the creative director of Hermes.

The crowd was packed with celebrities and the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan. The Kardashians had several dance parties throughout the show. Other celebs in attendance- Jaden Smith, Jennifer Hudson, Pete Wentz, Lamar Odom, Austin Mahone, Anna Wintour, Tyga, Jonathan Cheban, oh and Naomi Campbell modeled in the show! Yes the famous, iconic supermodel.


Kanye also announced a video game he’s creating dedicated to his late mother Donda, called “Only One: The Game.” It features his mother going through the Gates of Heaven.



All in all, Yeezy Season 3 and The Life of Pablo did not disappoint. Happy Thursye!
