Who Is Pablo In Kanye's 'The Life Of Pablo?'
Following Kanye West on Twitter right now is like stepping through a minefield: from (repeatedly) changing the name of his new album to (unfortunately) defending Bill Cosby, 'Ye is continuously confusing his fans.
Late Wednesday (February 10), West's latest move was de-coding his cryptic new album title, announcing the record is now called The Life Of Pablo. Why? At this point, why are you still asking questions?
Still, one question we can't help but ask is the obvious: WHO is Pablo? Pablo Escobar? Pablo Neruda? Pablo, the kid who famously shouted "Kanye for President" at the 2015 VMAs?
We think we know which Pablo 'Ye is referring to: Pablo Picasso. We can't be sure, but since the Spanish artist was referenced in Kanye's 2015 Oxford University lecture, Picasso feels like the safest bet.
“My goal, if I was going to do art, fine art, would have been to become Picasso or greater," Kanye stated in the speech.
Or maybe Kanye just really loves The Modern Lovers? You literally never know.
