Kanye Wests Yeezy sneaker line worth Sh100billion – Forbes

 

 

Kanye West is the third highest earning celebrity on earth.

In a rare interview, the 42-year old talked with Forbes about his design process, what the future holds for the Yeezy brand, and more—in a way only he can.

Below is some of the takeaways from the interview:

He tells the magazine that he sees his diagnosis of bipolar disorder not as a hindrance but as a “superpower” that unlocks his imagination.

He disclosed

“Crazy is a word that’s not gonna be used loosely in the future. Understand that this is actually a condition that people can end up in, be born into, driven into & go in & out. & there’s a lot of people that have been called that ‘C’ word that have ended up on this cover.”

Will Kenya West outsell Micheal Jordan?

While the Jordan line does approximately $3 billion in annual sales; West’s upstart is expected to top $1.5 billion in 2019 and growing. West still owns 100% of Yeezy, a holding that made him a centimillionaire much earlier in life than other competitors—including Michael Jordan

Kanye thinks Yeezys are the “Lamborghini of shoes” and Adidas is trying to keep them limited. In the interview he said

“There’s a little bit of Lamborghini in everything I do. Yeezy is the Lamborghini of shoes.”

Kanye West makes more off royalties than Michael Jordan does.

The Addidas Yeezy line is one of the most popular sneaker lines.

According to Forbes, the Air Jordan line does roughly $3 billion in annual sales. Adidas Yeezy is projected to top $1.5 billion in 2019. One thing that Ye already has MJ beat in is royalties. West reportedly makes 15-percent royalties on wholesale in comparison to Jordan’s estimaed 5-percent royalties on wholesale Air Jordan sales. The 42-year old also still owns 100-percent of the Yeezy brand—something that has helped him become a centimillionaire faster than some of his footwear counterparts like Jordan.

He owns 100 percent of Yeezy and it’s going to make him a billionaire. He said

“I am a product guy at my core. To make products that make people feel an immense amount of joy and solve issues and problems in their life, that’s the problem-solving that I love to do.”

Back in January, Kim confirmed that they were expecting their fourth child during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live.

Below are some of the good, the bad and the ugly of social media on bipolar victims.

Good for kids struggling to socialize

While there’s nothing better than a genuine face-to-face relationship, there are some adolescents who are so shy that anxieties will flare up, so social media actually helps facilitate connection to other people, says Dr. Joel Young, founder and medical director of the Rochester Center for Behavioral Medicine.

women chatting

Hyper-focused interests

Social media can also be beneficial for those children who have obsessive symptoms that are common in bipolar disorder and Asperger’s syndrome.

Young observes that

“Unlike the natural world, where lecturing without discrimination on one subject is a recipe for social isolation, that kind of thing is what makes the Internet tick,”

More opportunities

Such a platform offers children and teens the opportunity to network, learn about the world, learn about people’s experiences, and access endless information.

It’s an invaluable tool when used, say, to learn a new language from another child at the other side of the world.

Online Harassment

Children with mental health illness, they are generally more vulnerable than the average child, and by being exposed to an Internet world of others, it widens the opportunity to be attacked and exploited.

Online bullying can be a prolific problem many parents and educators see and find challenging to deal with.

Self-esteem and social development

The negative impact social media can have on teens is seen in a profound way on self-esteem. It is all too easy for faceless individuals from anywhere in the world to cruelly criticize others, widening the potential for damaging emotional behavior.

Overstimulation

For children with the co-illness of ADHD and bipolar disorder, the over-stimulating medium of social media itself can have negative effects due to its overwhelming nature.

“Kids with ADHD can find it hard to focus, even in normal circumstances,” explains Young.  “When you have too much stimuli, it’s highly problematic.”

Lack of self-control

For kids with bipolar or ADHD, they lack the built-in capability of self-control. So, having such a world of “instant gratification” available, can be too appealing and obsessions can easily set in.

These kids can also be prone to technology addictions and it’s not uncommon for teens to stay up all night glued to their screens.

It affects people of all classes and among celebrities who suffer from bipolar include Maria Carey, Kanye West.

Speaking to People Magazine, Maria said she was diagnosed with Biopolar2 disorder in 2001 and only came to terms with it recently.

She is now going to therapy regularly and taking medication.

“Until recently I lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear someone would expose me,” she says of keeping the diagnosis private. “It was too heavy a burden to carry and I simply couldn’t do that anymore. I sought and received treatment, I put positive people around me and I got back to doing what I love — writing songs and making music.”

Kanye West

After much speculation about his mental health, Kanye West has set the record straight in his latest album ‘Ye’ which was launched recently.

He wrote

“I hate being Bi-Polar it’s awesome,“That’s why I f**k with Ye / That’s my third person / That’s my bipolar s**t, ni**a what / That’s my superpower / Ni**a ain’t no disability / I’m a superhero, I’m a superhero.”

Jean -Claude known to many as Van Damme for his  tough guy act on movies, is also among the many celebrities battling bi-polar.

The man whose career has spanned over two decades began to crush and burn in the 90’s. This was due to  excessive partying, a string of failed marriages and a cocaine addiction formed after the 1995 bomb Sudden Death.

Van Damme admitted to doing about 10 grams a day at his worst. He checked himself into a clinic in 1996 for substance addiction treatment, although prematurely exited seven days later, and relapsed only a few years later.

Things improved in 1998 when he was diagnosed with rapid cycling bipolar disorder. Rapid cycling bipolar is where mood swings between high and low are much more frequent.

He was prescribed sodium valproate, a mood stabilizing drug that is also used to treat epilepsy, and by his account responded very well

According to Justin Bennett  while getting his life back in line Van Dammwe also reunited with a previous wife, Gladys Portugues, and has remained happily married since.

Van Damme still struggles, but he’s open about those struggles and seems less and less to be fighting the world.

The mother-of-three said she was ‘proud’ of her hard-working husband.

‘So proud of you dropping back to back albums & fulfilling your dreams. You inspire me to make the impossible always become a reality. Love you.’

The accompanying picture showed Kanye with the infant nestled between his legs, checking his cell phone.

How TV presenter Sheila Mwanyigha celebrated her birthday

According to Daily Mail the image appeared to have been taken at the same time as a shot she shared back in April, captioned Party Of Five. That image also included Kim and the pair’s older children, North and Saint.

Kim wasn’t the only member of her family to celebrate Kanye on Friday, with her mom Kris Jenner sharing a touching message.

‘Happy birthday to my son Kanye!!’ ‘Thank you for being a constant inspiration, for being the most wonderful father, friend, husband and son. I am so blessed to have you in my life. #HappyBirthdayKanye #proudmama#love.’she wrote to her son-in-law, who lost his own mother Donda 11 years ago.

And Kim’s little sister Kendall Jenner joined in, sharing a picture of Kanye with the caption ‘Happy birthday big bro.’

Kim previously revealed she is planning ‘an intimate little dinner’ for Kanye’s birthday.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star decided to keep things low-key and throw him a small meal with their close friends and family at their house in Los Angeles.

Speaking to E! News, the 37-year-old beauty said: ‘I’m planning a dinner for him at our house. Just an intimate little dinner with friends.’

And the Bound 2 hitmaker certainly deserves to be waited on hand and foot on his special day as he’s been busy working in the studio over the past few months on his recently-released seven-track album Ye – for which the couple hosted an album listening party on Thursday night.

Kim also left him to clear up the mess after their daughter North’s unicorn-themed birthday party at the weekend and wanted him to be there when she opened her gifts.She explained: ‘He’s at home babysitting. He was going to come, and he wanted to come, but I’m staying a few extra days in New York. And so I said, “You know our daughter had her birthday party last night. She needs to wake up and open her presents, so you’re going to have to take that shift.” So he did that!’

Kim’s low-key approach to Kanye’s birthday will no doubt come as a surprise to fans as she stocked a plane with Japanese snacks and magazines for his 40th birthday last year and made him guess where they were going.

Taking to her Twitter account earlier this year, the reality star uploaded a photograph of Kanye beaming at the camera with his stash of Japanese candy sat in front of him.

She accompanied it with the caption: ‘Throwback to that time I surprised Kanye with a trip to Japan for his birthday! He had to guess where we were going based on the snacks and magazines I had the plane stocked with! He was happy! (sic

Should wives be blamed when their husbands are on a downward spiral like Kanye West?

Are the actions of a grown man the responsibility of his wife? Let’s talk about that.

For a while now, we have been treated to all manner of antics by Kanye West, and literally everyone is saying he is on a downward path, and that his wife should stop him.

Social media users are blaming Kim Kardashian, saying she should take away his phone, or better yet stop him from appearing and speaking in public.

Rapper Snoop Dogg has even said that the type of woman a man marries is important. He is comparing Beyonce’s situation to Kim Kardashians, adding that Beyonce has kept her man in check while Kim has failed to do so. Do you agree?

Here are some comments from social media users, and keep up with the Kardashians.

Kenyatta Jones…Snoops point. I believe he was saying that you can see the change in the men by the women who they are with. Beyonce has made a positive impact in Jay’s life and it shows and Kim has not made a positive impact in Kanyes life at all. As long as he has been with her he never looks or seems happy, and his behavior is erratic. I don’t see any positive change or influence she has bought to his life……even with the kids. Of course you can’t blame her for his behavior but he does seem worse off with her than he was when he wasn’t with her. Essence you got this point all wrong!

 

Kimberly Hardison… Oh please…..she is his FREAKIN WIFE!!!!! No way in HELLLLLL I’m gonna watch my man driving off a cliff and not try to stop him. It’s called a damn INTERVENTION!!! That chick is self absorbed and so is he…Essence ….. STOP IT. This is straight FOOLISHNESS

Fiona Mcdonald-Brown …They are to hold each other accountable, so it is her job to hold him accountable for his actions and stupid things that comes out of his mouth. If she can’t help him then no one can!

Peta Jones …she’s a narcissist and so is he and they just feed each other’s over inflated egos. Since he married her he’s been on a downward spiral…I guess it can just be a coincidence

Bernice Child… Damn right!! Besides, Kim can’t even be responsible for herself so why would anyone expect her to be responsible/accountable for his out of control arse

Sabrina Brady.. No but the power his wife’s influence has a lot to do with it. They are both self-absorbed people. She only notices when someone else speaks on it and it her husband!

Meme Lane ..Who’s to say that she didn’t try to help him? She has 3 damn babies to take care of. Kanye has to want it for himself. Sometimes all that you can do is pray without ceasing and let God handle the rest.

Jacqueline Whyte.. This man is crazy, and Kim is going through hell trying to hide it! She knows if she announced it publicly people will devour her, so she’s just standing back. I really feel sorry for her!

Latisha Manuel Howell …She doesn’t have to be his parent, just his Peace
She seems like the annoying clingy type, so I can imagine he doesn’t have any peace

The superstar made the revelation about Gloria Carter in the lyrics to the soulful track Smile.

Mama had four kids but she’s a lesbian / Had to pretend so long, that she’s a thespian,’ raps Jay Z, who has spoken of how his father’s absence contributed to his troubled youth in public housing in Brooklyn.

Don’t matter to me if it’s a him or her / I just want to see you smile through all the hate,’ he raps.

In doing so, the husband of Beyonce confirms for the first time hushed rumors about his mother’s sexuality. He also explains how she turned to substances to cope with the stigma.

Smile opens with a snippet from Stevie Wonder and closes with a poem by Gloria herself, who recites: ‘The world is changing and they say it’s time to be free / But you live with the fear of just being me.’

Jay Z, like many rappers of his generation, employed homophobic slurs in his early music but was also one of the first prominent voices in hip hop to speak out in favour of gay rights.

Jay Z elsewhere throws veiled barbs at other rappers, including onetime protege Kanye West, who last year ranted against Jay Z and in support of then President-elect Donald Trump before entering a hospital.

The rapper has especially harsh words for the estate of pop icon Prince, a longtime rebel in the music industry, who had signed a deal with Tidal shortly before his death.

He denounces the ‘greedy bastards’ who have commercialized Prince with moves such as bringing his catalogue onto leading streaming service Spotify.

Kim Kardashian’s Son Saint West Turns ONE, Reality Star Shares a Warm Photo Cuddling The Toddler

TMZ reported on Saturday Kanye was not taking the correct amount of his medicine for a longstanding psychological condition.

Though it was reported there were problems between Kim and Kanye and she wanted a ‘break,’ E! News contradicted that report on Sunday and claimed Kim still loves him and has no plans to leave him.

Kim has not been on social media or made a public appearance in two months.

Kim Kardashian Throws Little Celebration To Mark Husband Kanye West’s Homecoming And Their Son’s First Birthday

It’s been a traumatic couple of weeks for her family.

And so Kim Kardashian decided to skip her usual extravagant celebrations in favour of a ‘low key’ party this week to mark both her husband Kanye West’s return from hospital and their son Saint’s first birthday.

Kanye was discharged from hospital on Wednesday, after suffering a reported ‘nervous breakdown’ over a week ago, while little Saint will turn one on December

Kim, 36, was keen to celebrate with her nearest and dearest according to insiders, and managed to throw together a ‘little celebration’ at her house in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

kim-kanye-saint-north

A source has told Us Weekly: ‘[Kim held] a little celebration with a little cake but it was very low-key.’

Kim – who also has three-year-old daughter North with her partner – invited her family to the party, with her sisters Khloe, Kourtney and Kylie all uploading a snapchat of dozens of star shaped metallic balloons filling the room.

Although it was supposedly a small get together, the Kardashian/Jenner family are ‘just happy’ the ‘Famous’ rapper is home safe and the brood can slowly start to get their life ‘back to normal’.

Kanye West

The source explained: ‘Everyone is just happy he’s back home and things can go back to normal.’

Meanwhile it has been claimed Kim is struggling to handle everything that has befallen the family in recent weeks.

Despite Kanye finally being discharged from hospital after his breakdown last week, his wife is still having difficulty coping.

‘Kim is really stressed out,’ an insider told People magazine on Thursday. ‘Everyone is trying to pitch in and help her out to relieve some of that and everything she’s going through.’

kanye-saint-west

Just last month, Kim personally went through an ordeal of her own when she was robbed at gunpoint while staying at a luxury apartment in Paris.

Undoubtedly, the incident did no favours for Kanye’s mental well-being – he left in the middle of his concert when he heard the news – and now his breakdown appears to be having further affect on his wife.

Kim Kardashian And Kanye FIRE Longtime Bodyguard Pascal Duvier a Month After The Paris Gunpoint Attack

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have reportedly made the decision to part ways with their longtime bodyguard Pascal Duvier.

Entertainment Tonight spoke with two sources who each claim that the Kardashian-West family made the ‘tough decision’ to let Pascal go, four years after he first started working with Kanye.

News of Pascal’s firing comes exactly one month after Kim was robbed at gunpoint inside her Paris apartment by a group of men who made off with $11million worth of jewels.

Pascal was out at a Paris nightclub providing protection for Kim’s siblings Kourtney and Kendall at the time of the robbery, leaving Kim alone in her bedroom with no bodyguard when the men broke in.

kim-bodyguard

Kim has largely avoided going out in public since the attack, and TMZ reports that for an intimate family dinner to celebrate sister Kendall’s birthday on Wednesday she brought along three off-duty cops.

Those $100-an-hour cops came in addition to the personal bodyguards of each sister, meaning that security almost outnumbered the 20 guests.

Kim also did not wear any jewelry for her night out.

In the aftermath of the robbery, both Kim and Kanye seemed to show their support for Pascal, who stayed on as their bodyguard and was seen protecting the couple in New York City immediately after the robbery.

kim-kanye-ny-4

A shift began to occur in recent weeks though according to some close to the family, with Kanye becoming increasingly concerned about the safety of his wife Kim and their two children, North and Saint.

A source told Entertainment Tonight a few weeks back: ‘Kim and Kanye are reassessing their security detail now. Kanye is freaking out – this really threw him for a loop.

‘There will be a lot of things that change now in terms of security, especially with the children.’

And it was not just Pascal whose employment was terminated by the Kardashian-West family either according to another source.

kim-bodygourd-2

‘Pascal, along with a couple other security members of their team, were recently let go by Kim and Kanye,’ said the individual.

‘It’s a pretty tough situation overall and they love Pascal, but they couldn’t take any more chances.’
Kim had spent the days before the attack praising Pascal on social media, writing on Twitter just five days before the robbery: ‘My security @PascalDuvier is a G!’

That tweet came just after Pascal slammed celebrity prankster Vitalii Sediuk to the ground when he came up behind Kim and tried to grab her while she was entering a Paris Fashion Week event.

kim-but-kissed-5

Then, just one day before the multi-million dollar jewel heist, Kim posted a paprazzi photo of herself entering the Balenciaga fashion show in Paris with Pascal right behind her, joking that ‘this guy is always in my shot.’

Pascal and his boss seem to have shared a love for social media too, with the bodyguard frequently posting photos and tweets.

He also posted the day before the robbery, writing on Twitter: ‘You don’t become a bodyguard overnight. It’s a job with dedication, responsibility, and passion.’

Happy Birthday Kanye West, Rapper Turns 38

Kanye West is turning 38 today 8th June. The rapper who is currently expecting his second born with wifey Kim Kardashian has quite a lot of achievements to write home about this year.

He was the cover of time magazine most influential people. He also received an honorary doctorate from the School of Art Institute Chicago for his influence in pop culture, fashion and music. That and news that he is going to be a daddy can’t be surely a bad 2015 for Kanye, he may even afford a smile.

Let’s just say we cannot wait for the release of his new album ‘SWISH’ that he is currently working on after making the announcement in May.

Kanye West receives honorary doctorate

Kanye West might be a college dropout, but now he has an advanced degree. The rapper received an honorary doctorate from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) Monday for his “transformative, genre-defying work.” In his acceptance speech, he described what the honor means to him.

“This honor is gonna make your lives easier,” he said. “Two reasons: You don’t have to defend me as much and I’m going to make all of our lives easier. And it’s these Floyd Mayweather belts that are needed to prove what I’ve been saying my entire life. Whether it’s the cosign of Paul McCartney grabbing me and saying, ‘It’s okay he doesn’t bite white people.’ Or The New York Times cover. Or the Time ‘Most Influential’ cover. And now, a doctorate at the Art Institute of Chicago.”

“When I was giving a lecture at Oxford,” he continued, “I brought up this school because when I went on that mission to create in other spaces — apparel, film, performance — it would have been easier if I could have said I had a degree at the Art Institute of Chicago.”

kanyewesthonored

Lisa Wainwright, dean of faculty and vice president of academic administration at SAIC, told the Los Angeles Times that it had decided to give West the honorary degree after he publicly mentioned the school.

“I read it and thought, ‘Wow, this is a fantastic moment.’ Here is this major figure in the cultural landscape promoting art school, this guy from Chicago saying art school is cool. So we thought, ‘This man deserves an honorary doctorate from us!’ He should have gone here.”

Kim Kardashian, who is currently in Brazil on business, commemorated her husband’s milestone with an Instagram post.

West attended Chicago’s American Academy of Art for one semester on a partial scholarship before transferring to Chicago State University, where his mother, Donda West, was head of the English Department, according to Rolling Stone. After one semester there, he dropped out to pursue his music career. And the rest is history.

Kanye West : Marriage , games and cheating

If you are Kanye West, you will always be surrounded by women and that will be temptation enough for one to cheat, those are sentiments shared by Kanye’s step mum and sister.

Apparently he used the children’s game Connect 4 to judge someone’s intelligence.

Aliya Jones, who’s mother Brenda Bentley was engaged to Kanye father Ray, told Heat magazine that when you are Kanye West “there’s going to be some temptation to stray”.

His step-sis isn’t gloating though as she continued with compassion: “I pray for them both – it’s going to be a lot of work and it’s never going to end. The temptation is always going to be there, as long as he is Kanye West.”

Brenda, who has been close to Kanye since he was just nine, went on to say that it’s not just Kim’s incredible booty that keeps him interested – he also likes the fact she’s not an “airhead” *

And how does he know she’s not? “He has Connect 4 backstage and if a woman could play Connect 4 with him, and give him a run for his money, he’d be interested.

“So you have to have a brain to be with him , he wouldn’t tolerate anything less.”

Kanye West’s fan replaces every mention of God in ‘Book of Yeezus’ Bible

He may be known for his admittedly massive ego, but surely even Kanye West would not have seen himself replacing God in the Bible.

The holy book’s Genesis has been reworked for a “modern day Bible” dubbed The Book of Yeezus and believe it or not, every mention of God has been changed to the rapper’s name.

“In a sense, Kanye’s awesome and orchestrated spectacle is truly a religious experience,” a description of the book reads. “For this generation, Generation Y, Kanye West is not only its greatest spectacle but in some senses, a spiritual figure.

“In a foreword, we explore our consumerist, quick-fix and information culture and celebrate Kanye and the outsized significance he plays in our lives.” Kanye is yet to comment on his newfound Godlike status but has compared himself to the Supreme Being before.

“God chose me, He made a path for me. I am God’s vessel,” he said back in 2009. “But my greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live.”

Kanye West maybe the next ‘Joel Osteen’

Kanye West is reportedly completing an online theology and religion course in his journey towards joining the clergy.

The source speaking to the Daily Star Sunday newspaper is quoted saying, “in the past year or two Kanye has become something of a born-again Christian. He used to go to church all the time as a kid but he lapsed badly as he got older.”

”Now he’s a father he’s become more spiritual and a better person. He is even smiling a lot and thinks becoming a reverend will bring him closer to God.”

Kim Kardashian goes blonde at Paris Fashion Week

Kim Kardashian flashed a new, platinum blonde hair-do at the Paris Fashion Week on Thursday as she watched the shows with rapper hubby Kanye West.

The attention-grabbing make-over by the normally brunette American reality TV star overshadowed the 2015 autumn collections unveiled by fashion houses Balmain and Lanvin, with photographers pushing to get snaps of the dyed diva.

Kardashian and West, both wearing all-black outfits, were joined by Kardashian’s mother Kris Jenner at the Balmain show.

The transformation into a blonde electrified celebrity-watchers on Twitter, where some fans gushed over how stunning she looked, others suggested she looked better before — and detractors snarked that she and American actor Jared Leto, who also turned up to the Balmain event with new platinum locks, were exchanging beauty tips.

Regardless, news of Kardashian as a bleached beauty easily became the most talked-about fashion statement at the Paris shows. Which is no mean feat at an event where the designers often try to outdo each other to get a slice of the limelight.

Rick Owens, an American stylist who created the biggest buzz at the last Paris fashion week in January by sending male models down the catwalk with their penises hanging out, trod more quietly on Thursday by presenting a relatively mild women’s ready-to-wear collection.

Amid the ankle-length, structured outfits coloured in brown and black, the most remarkable feature was sprayed-on gold masks worn by some of the models.

Owens told Women’s Wear Daily, a website reference for the fashion world, that the Big Thing in the show was using sequins for the first time.

“Especially after the men’s show, it was nice to do something sentimental and a bit naive,” he said.

– ‘Winter is coming’ –

For theatrical flourish, fashionistas had to go to the spectacle put on by Indian designer Manish Arora. Flashy red and fuchsia get-ups that looked to be fantasy battledress dreamed up by manga artists lit up the catwalk.

Arora emphasised that the collection was a Bollywood take inspired by the hit US TV series “Game of Thrones” by having that fantasy world’s “Winter is Coming” motto sewn into some pieces and its theme music remixed as part of the soundtrack.

At Carven, those in the know were keen to see what direction new designers Adrien Caillaudaud and Alexis Martial, both aged 30, would take. The answer was: pants.

It was the first time the house has introduced pants into the collection, though the novel duo were careful to keep the A-line skirts and miniskirts that has made the brand a signature style for Parisian women.

The idea for Carven’s “new woman” was taken from the energy of Paris in the late 1960s, the designers said.

“We wanted to imagine what foreigners might feel about the Parisian woman: her elegance, an urban attitude, a sort of carefree approach,” said Caillaudaud.
