After a mysterious nine month social media hiatus, Kanye West has reactivated his Instagram account. Welcome back, Kanye! Here’s what you’ve missed while you were gone: people really love that 1980’s sitcom superzoom filter, and based on your wife’s recent activity, she should probably be the next person in your house who gets their Instagram privileges taken away. But enough about that, it’s time to see what Kanye has been up to online.
Kanye posted his first picture yesterday. It appears to be the world’s laziest Valentine’s Day card, which I assume was meant for Kim Kardashian. Or maybe it’s a Valentine Kanye made for his real true love: himself.
Then Kanye made up for all those months of lost time by spamming his own account with 54 pictures of famous couples from the past, like Elizabeth Hurley and Hugh Grant, Michelle Obama and Barack Obama, Britney and K-Fed. Kanye’s three most recent posts are a picture of Kris Jenner and Robert Kardashian, and two different pics of himself and Kim.
A part of me feels like either Kanye started struggling to fill his couple quota, or Kim took over his phone and decided to do some trolling on her former boss, because then there’s this terrifying blast from the past:
If Paris Hilton wants to get him back with a taste of his own extremely-unflattering medicine, there’s plenty of pictures of Kanye in that hilariously dated trash bag-looking button-up with Amber Rose at the VMAs out there.
Pitchfork notes that Kanye’s Twitter account is still inactive. So it looks like he’s just focusing on Instagram for now. And apparently his focus is pretty much the same as a moody, lovesick 15-year-old’s with a vintage aesthetic. Suddenly Kanye’s love of Lana Del Rey makes so much sense.
