ICYMI, Kanye West's Yeezy Season 4 show was...um...how do we put this? Highly dramatic. Not only did Kanye make fashion editors wait in the hot sun for hours, prompting tweets like this from NYT Fashion Director Vanessa Friedman...

So, what did Kanye have to say for himself? Plenty. The rapper played at the Harper's Bazaar ICONS event in NYC, where he treated everyone to a mini Rant™ and (vaguely) spoke about his poorly reviewed show.
"At the beginning of this performance, I tried my best to not try. No, I tried to listen to all the reports and shit and I tried my best to stop trying," he said. "But I just couldn't do it! I couldn't stop. No matter what they write, I just couldn't stop...I appreciate y'all going on this journey for me. I appreciate all the years y'all put up with me learning in front of you and listening to the music at the same time."
Ye also tweeted a uncharacteristically humble musing to fans post-Yeezy show:
Nice to know that this genius can take criticism and learn from it, right?
