Met Gala: Kanye West Wears Blue Contacts and the World Reacts on Social Media
"Vibes" is all the rapper said when asked about his metallic-looking eyes on the red carpet.
Kanye West was feeling blue at Monday night's Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. That is, the rapper wore a pair of blue contacts on the red carpet, where he matched Kim Kardashian's silver metallic Balmain gown.
When asked what led him to opt for the light contact lenses, he simply told E!, "Vibes."
This isn't the rapper's first time wearing colored contacts in public; he went for the eerie look while performing "Wolves" on Saturday Night Live's 40th anniversary special in February.
Though Yeezy may have been feeling his new blue eyes, the social media sphere wasn't quite on the same page as the Balmain-clad rapper.
There's too much history behind black people and blue eyes lol. So I'm really struggling with Kanye's look— دنيس (@dennyboo0101) May 3, 2016
