Kanye West has refused to do press surrounded his current Paris Fashion Week show as he was "hurt" by the negative reviews he received last year.
The rapper-turned-designer launched his women's fashion range in the French capital last year, but it surprisingly didn't go down too well with fashion critics. According to the New York Times, Yeezy was expected to do press this week to promote the range, but cancelled the conference last-minute.
The publication's fashion blog quotes Kanye as saying: "I don't know about this. I got treated unfairly by the press last time. Why would I want to do this?"
When asked if he wanted to explain his designs to editors, his replied: "No. If they don't understand it, they don't understand it."
Despite last year's negative reactions, Yeezy was supported by some of his showbiz friends including Alicia Keys, P. Diddy, Cassie and Common. He was also joined by rumoured lover Kim Kardashian who even wore his new $6,000 women's heels.
Should Yeezy man-up?
