HOLY KANYE WADES IN THE WATER

Kim at the memorial. She visited in the run up to the genocide's centennial.

As did a load of other people, because 'Ye performed a free show at Swan Lake. Whether through holy virtue or pure impulse, Kanye decided to jump in the water in the middle of his set. Twitter's been guffawing at the oft repeated joke about the rapper thinking he's Jesus, but you can't really blame Kanye when hundreds are wading in after him to touch the hem of his Maison Margiela garment.

It's a bizarre clip, and I don't really know what to make of it. I guess the crowd's feelings were similar to football fans before a pitch invasion, when they learn that they've narrowly avoided relegation on the final day of the season. A urge to be a part of a moment that's so forceful, to not surrender to it is physically painful.

Whatever your thoughts, you have to salute the Kardashian's for giving the tragedy of the Armenian Genocide this huge a platform.

P.S. the title of this post is a nod to the traditional hymn, 'Wade In The Water', which just so happens to be sung in one of my fave YouTube videos. Check it out!!!
