He was spotted shopping SUPREME in May with his wife, Bianca Censori, amid the controversies surrounding their fashion senses.

The Jesus Is King rapper extended his series of unsolicited comments when he committed one of his infamous moments in the industry at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

The blunder involved Taylor Swift, who won the Best Female Video award for her hit track, You Belong With Me. The Champagne Problems singer beat the other popular singers nominated in the category, including Beyoncé.

“Thank you so much!” Swift said in her acceptance speech. “I always dreamed about what it would be like to maybe win one of these someday, but I never actually thought it would have happened. I sing country music so thank you so much for giving me a chance to win a VMA award.”

However, West interrupted her and left the audience speechless as soon as he grabbed the microphone to announce that Queen Bey’s video was one of the best of all time.

He returned the spotlight to Swift, who looked mortified and clueless about what happened.

West showed how proud he was of his then-wife, Kim Kardashian, but he did it in the most controversial way.

In 2013, he appeared on On Air with Ryan Seacrest to promote the KKW Beauty mogul to become the subject of a future Vogue cover story despite the fact that Anna Wintour banned her from the magazine events and any related materials.

He supported his pitch by saying Barbara Walters had been calling Kardashian every day and that they were the “most influential with clothing.”

West’s words did not satisfy him, so he took his promotion further by mentioning Michelle Obama.

“No one is looking at what [the president] is wearing. Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a [sexy swimsuit] pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day,” he continued.

West lost his major brands following his continuous antisemitism statements.

Long before his continuous racism issue started, West sparked criticism as early as 2015 when he told Clique TV that racism is a “dated” and “silly” concept.

“It’s like a bouncing ball in a room with two cats, or something, when you don’t feel like playing with a cat,” West said. “Let them literally fight over the bouncing ball. And the bouncing ball has nothing, no purpose, anything other than that: it bounces. That’s racism. It’s not an actual thing that even means anything.”

His ex-business partners at The Gap filed a $2 million lawsuit against him.

West has a long list of snubs with Grammys, and he disparaged the Recording Academy in 2015.

When Beck won the Album of the Year award for Morning Phase, he rushed the stage again and looked like he would take the microphone from the winner again like he did in the past. But he walked away without saying anything.

He later said Beck outshining Beyoncé in the category was “disrespectful to inspiration.”

“So, the voices in my head told me go, and then I just walked up, like, halfway up the stage,” he told Ryan Seacrest. But I just didn’t really want to take away from Beck’s moment, or the time he’s having to talk.”

West added it was a kind of joke “like the Grammys themselves.”
