Last weekend, Kanye West showed up for a surprise performance at the hipster hipfest in the desert, the vortex of all hipness in the known universe, the Coachella Music Festival. Throughout his performance, Kanye sported a rootin’-tootin’ cowboy bandanna around his neck, which has recently become the latest “let’s all wear the same arbitrary fashion accessory” fad in places with a dense hipster population, such as New York City, Austin and Los Angeles. Anyway, when Kanye showed up on the decidedly un-hip TRL this Wednesday and Thursday with un-hip friend Tom Cruise to promote Mission: Impossible, he boldly continued sporting rootin’-tootin’ bandannas on BOTH occasions (see photos after the jump). So what’s up – is Kanye reading VICE Magazine or something? Can we expect him to start popping up on The Cobrasnake and Blue States Lose wearing a trucker hat and a Welcome Back Kotter t-shirt?
A now a special message from Kanye the Hip-hop-ster:
KANYE ON TRL WEDNESDAY:
KANYE ON TRL THURSDAY:
