Video: Ouch! Kanye West Rages After Walking Head-On Into A Sign
Kanye West was out and about in Beverly Hills this afternoon when he walked head-on into a street sign.
West was trying to avoid the lens of the paparazzi while walking around with his girlfriend Kim Kardashian (dressed in head-to-toe black lace, apparently mourning whatever fashion sense she once possessed). He kept his face so far down that he missed a street sign and ran head-on into it. Ouch!
Kardashian kissed it to make it better, but West got angry anyway. He sped up and walked toward a pap, looking like he was ready for a confrontation: "Stop taking fucking pictures, man!"
But then he seemed to chill out, and he ducked into a restaurant with Kardashian. But TMZ reports later he did go off on a paparazzi.
UPDATE: Looks like ducking into a restaurant didn't really help West cool down. Here's a video of him going ballistic on a paparazzi—apparently after the fact:
