NEW YORK (AP) With Beyonce, Rihanna and Diddy among the front row celebrity royalty, Kanye West rolled out his Yeezy Boost shoe line for Adidas on Thursday as his baby North fussed in mama Kim Kardashian’s arms next to a stone faced Anna Wintour.

Models, men and women, wore minimal neutral tights or street wear in red, green and black to let the shoes shine in a tech driven unveiling that included a simulcast to 42 theaters on three continents around the world.

A mysterious Yeezy website with a countdown clock had gone up last week to stoke excitement over the highly anticipated release, West’s inaugural collaboration with Adidas Originals.

An app was set up to take reservations for the gray suede high tops, to be collected and paid for at Adidas and other stores Saturday in New York City only for the moment. Reservations were full within minutes,

an Adidas spokesman said. Only 9,000 pairs of the 750 Boosts will be sold, at $350 a pop, on Saturday with more available Feb. 28 worldwide.

West has promised the presentation will be repeated over two days at 10 locations. Lucky ticket holders who scored theater seats in countries ranging from Australia and Finland to France, Germany, Russia and the UK got to watch live.

Backstage after the show, West was chill and smiling, a pair of his new Yeezys with their thick white soles and wide strap across the laces in place. A side zip and front perforations complete the look of the lead style,

which comes with a spare set of laces.

The rapper has big plans to create more Yeezys, for women and kids as well, after leaving Nike for Adidas more than a year ago.

He has spoken of the “isms” in fashion and in life classism, elitism, racism. But on Thursday, after the crowd thinned out, he had no problems on his mind, refusing to talk about his Grammys diss of Beck,

which he retreated from in a radio interview Wednesday.

“I just focus on beauty, fabric, proportion and try to get the price where the kids can get a hold of it,” he told The Associated Press of his Yeezys after urging fans to avoid “shoe wars” and thefts and be patient for more of the shoes to come.

How do the trainers symbolize Kanye?

“It’s not me. It’s the people,” he said. “I think that there’s something that people have been wanting and missing and this is my proposition, you know, to contribute in some way. I want to contribute to society through usable art.”

The star studded presentation also drew Jay Z, Russell Simmons and Justin Bieber. Beyonce had a good time.

“I thought it was beautiful,
adidas gazelle mid Kanye West Rolls Out Yeezy Shoes
” she said backstage after the show. “Very innovative. I loved how the ladies lined up.”

Also attending were Kardashian Momager Kris Jenner and Kim sisters Kendall and Khloe, who smiled from the front row against the backdrop of New York Fashion Week’s opening day and the NBA All Star game this weekend.

LOS ANGELES Kanye West has been hospitalized in Los Angeles after abruptly canceling the last 21 dates of his national tour.

A spokeswoman for the E! network, which airs the Kardashian family reality show and its spinoffs, confirmed an E! News report that West was hospitalized Monday afternoon after his personal doctor called 911.

Christel Wheeler said Tuesday that E! cameras were not filming when the 911 call was made and that they are not filming at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, where West is being treated.

A spokeswoman for West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, had no comment Tuesday.

Los Angeles police told The Associated Press on Monday that they responded to a home in West Hollywood, California, and a person there was taken by ambulance to the hospital and placed on a psychiatric hold. Police did not identify the patient as West.

Wheeler said West was at the home of his personal trainer when the emergency call was made.

Kardashian had been expected to make her first public appearance Monday night since she was tied up and robbed at gunpoint last month in Paris. It was to come at the Angel Ball, a charity event in New York honoring her late father,

Robert Kardashian.

But amid the reports about West, she did not show up.

Her mother, Kris Jenner, and sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian were on hand.

When asked how the couple was doing, Jenner simply smiled and said, “They’re good.”

West had just pulled the plug on his Saint Pablo Tour after days of erratic and angry behavior that made an even hotter topic than usual on social media.

On Friday, during a concert in San Jose, California, West said he didn’t vote in the presidential election but would have cast a ballot for Donald Trump, praising the president elect’s “method of communication” as “very futuristic.”

On Saturday in Sacramento, California, he ended his show after just four songs but not before a 10 minute tirade about Beyonce,
adidas adria Kanye West hospitalized in Los Angeles
Jay Z, Hillary Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg, the radio and MTV.

Over the weekend, West also flooded his Instagram account with nearly 100 fashion photos, many snaps of photos that were out of focus and poorly cropped.

Sunday’s show in the Los Angeles area was canceled then West decided to scrap the entire tour.

Concert promoter Live Nation said tickets would be fully refunded. The tour was to have made stops through Dec.

For Kanye West, a swirling, eventful year ends in a hospital

It’s been a hectic year for Kanye West. There was a new album that had a tortured, months long release. Two fashion shows that were plagued by last minute changes and long delays. concert tour, a newborn son, and a harrowing robbery of his wife.

“When was the last time I wasn’t in a hurry,” West asks on the song “Real Friends” from the new CD “The Life of Pablo.” On another track,
adidas adria Kanye West hospitalized in Los Angeles
West admonishes his less industrious friends: “Y’all sleeping on me, huh? Had a good snooze?”

A relentless schedule and a churning life in the media glare with his wife, Kim Kardashian, apparently took their toll on the Grammy Award winner. West was taken to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles on Monday afternoon for stress and exhaustion.

“In the last 12 months, there probably hasn’t been anyone more in the spotlight than Kanye and his wife,” said Bob Williams, the CEO/COO of Burns Entertainment Sports Marketing , which specializes in celebrity procurement and music licensing.

“I don’t know any celebrity who has been under more scrutiny than the two of them are,” Williams added. “That creates tremendous pressure from the outside expectations to perform, pressure to respond. It takes time. It takes effort.”

In the days leading to his hospitalization, West’s behavior was somewhat erratic. On Saturday in Sacramento, California,
adidas adria Kanye West hospitalized in Los Angeles
he ended his show after just four songs but not before a 10 minute tirade about Beyonce, Jay Z, Hillary Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg, the radio and MTV.

West also flooded his Instagram account with nearly 100 fashion photos, many snaps of photos that were out of focus and poorly cropped. Then Sunday’s concert in the Los Angeles area was canceled just a few hours before it was to start; West soon decided to scrap the entire tour. Requests for comment from the rapper’s record label have gone unanswered.

“The lights are bright and if they are on you all the time coupled with your own quest for immortality and greatness I can only imagine it’s like running a marathon that never ends,” Creekmur said.

For much of 2016, West has been front and center, showing off his work and ideas finished or not like a ringmaster at a never ending cultural circus, fueled by his perfectionist streak.

“That perfectionist mentality can become a consuming state of being because there’s no such thing,” said Creekmur. “If you are in pursuit of perfection,

you’ll probably find yourself going insane because there is literally no such thing as perfection.”

adidas trainer Kanye West flips out after given fashion advice

adidas originals gazelle og Kanye West flips out after given fashion advice

Kanye West lost his temper during a satellite radio interview on Tuesday after longtime MTV host and reporter Sway Calloway offered the rapper fashion industry advice.The rap star was appearing on Calloway’s Shade 45 show on SiriusXM when he took offence to the host’s line of questioning about his past attempts to break into the world of fashion.The presenter suggested West should release his ideas himself and not rely on fashion house bosses to back him, prompting the temperamental rapper to scream, “How, Sway? You ain’t got the answers, man! You ain’t been doing the education.”As Calloway attempted to calm him down, West continued to rage and rant, stating, “You ain’t spent $13 million of your own money trying to empower yourself.”The two men then started arguing on air about their fashion credentials with the rap star poking fun at the host’s former clothing line, adding, “What’s the name of your clothing line? We don’t know.”They eventually calmed down and a more level headed West told the radio host he feels marginalized by bosses of companies like sportswear brand Nike, who he recently cut ties with over the release of a new line the rapper had been working on.He added, “The thing that compresses me is time versus money. Integrity, money and relevance. Because, as I work on clothing more, I’m not rapping as much. and I’m not having as much finances. I’m losing relevancy. The relevancy is part of my power that allows my brand to be big. That’s what I’m saying you juggle so crazy, and then you get a Nike that can simply say, ‘The (Air) Yeezys (shoes) did good, that was a good job. Let me get you some more so you can start your own line because obviously people (are) lining up for it.'”But they’ll marginalize and play you and talk about, ‘We don’t even know when the Red Octobers (new line) are coming out’.”West recently signed a new deal with Nike’s rival Adidas after falling out with the brand’s bosses.He also urged his fans to boycott Louis Vuitton during an appearance on 92.3 NOW radio station on Monday. The rapper is still upset by the fact Louis Vuitton boss Yves Carcelle refused to meet him the last time he was in Paris, France.
