Zealous rapper/producer Kanye West has been suffering from over exposure and injured ego after his infamous mic snatch from Taylor Swift at September’s MTV VMAs. Post-incident (which makes it about his 10th public offense in recent years) Kanye’s been keeping a low profile, having canceled his joint tour with Lady Gaga, being notably absent from Oct 10’s BET Awards, and fueling whispers of his jetting off to seek solitude and self reflection.
What else do you do when the President calls you a “jackass”? Make like The Beatles and head east!
Says an unnamed source,
“He knows he needs to come back from this break changed, and that isn’t going to happen at some rehab overlooking the ocean. He goes to India, he has a chance to come back seeming like he learned something from what happened.”
Uh, let’s hope he actually does learn something eh? So, the lucky hot spot? Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry. We kinda feel for the fella – he not too long ago lost his mom, and guide, suddenly in 2007 – and we wish him the best in his soul-seeking journey. Safe to say we’re extremely curious to find out how the month-long stay affects Kanye’s demeanor, and of course, his music and fashion! Will he have a beard? Are glow-in-the-dark shades the new yoga accessory? Will his next album have a collab with Sting and Krishna Das?
