    The eccentric star, who is continuing to build a career as a Christian hip-hopper following his record-setting album “Jesus is King”, has presented his new opera, titled Mary, in Miami. However, it was not his creation, but his bizarre look with a silver-painted face and shining outfit, that prompted a storm of hilarious jokes.

    US rap star Kanye West has once again shaken the online crowd with a performance that left many asking: “what’s wrong with him?” The hip-hopper stunned netizens with his shiny look with a baggy silver outfit, paired with silver socks and flip-flops, as well as silver paint on his head and hands during a performance of Mary, his second opera, at the Miami Marine Stadium.

    Although the world has witnessed an array of different Kanyes, this image was too much to bear for many.

    ​Kanye’s look inspired all kinds of allusions. Some recalled The Wizard of Oz.

    ​Others noted that his cult is worth discussing.

    ​Some were more supportive and admired his creative freedom.

    ​The rapper was not the only one who graced the stage decked in silver from head to toe, as other performers matched his meme-tastic outfit. The new creation, featuring music by the Sunday Service choir, is based on a Biblical story and directed by Nicole Beecroft.
