Kanye West has spent the last few months singing Frank Ocean's praises: He loves Blonde, Ocean's full-length, and was planning on boycotting the Grammys over the fact that the Recording Academy didn't bend the rules to get the album a nomination or several.
Did he love the album so much that he decided to go blond himself? Eh, probably not, but new photos have surfaced that show Kanye did bleach his tresses recently.
West has been keeping a low profile for the last few weeks following the cancellation of his remaining Saint Pablo Tour dates and a recent hospitalization that apparently addressed sleep deprivation, dehydration, and psychiatric concerns.
On December 8, artist Giovanni Leonardo Bassan posted snapshots of West at a showing of designer Rick Ownens's furniture exhibition at the MOCA Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles on Instagram, where he was seen sporting his new, lighter 'do. (Bassan has since made his Instagram private; the embed above comes from a fan site.)
West has expressed an interest in furniture design in the past, so is this research for an upcoming project or simply a recreational outing? Either way, he appears to be on the mend, and the blond hair is working for him in the meantime.
