What the what?!?! Well we can catch viruses floating around in the air but can we catch creativity?!? Maybe that is what the person who buys that 3K dollar bag of Kanye air is hoping. Yes, you heard me right, crazed Kanye fans who were at his DONDA listening event in Atlanta were hoping to make some money by simply trapping air that was shared by Kanye and other celebrities in a zip lock bag.
After a minute or so of getting over the shock of the story, I thought, “why not?”. As I mentioned, the sold-out event gave one fan the idea to put a bag of air on eBay for $3,333.33. Why shouldn’t a fan sell Kayne’s air and make money? It’s not like Kanye does not take advantage of his fans at every single turn. For example, at the DONDA event he sold snacks for $65?!?!? COME ON. If you pay that you’re dumb. Kanye knows some of his fans are sheep so he’ll get away with it. Here was the menu:
Full disclosure my oldest daughter, Brianna and her boyfriend Juan went to this event. No, I did not pay for it. She knew not to ask lol. They go to college at Florida State but this was important enough to them to take off from work and school and drive to ATL to be there. I like Kanye’s music but I don’t understand the rabid dedication to him. Maybe that makes me the out of touch mom…but I’m OK with that. I’m chomping on reasonably priced snacks right now.
My daughter paid $120 for a T-shirt…that she will not wear. When the demand goes up that is going on eBay. It was an “investment”.
The event was sold out almost right away. It’s a huge venue too. It never fails with Kanye, his clothing and shoes sell out in minutes online too…literally breaking the internet.
When I asked my daughter, Brianna, if it was worth it…the driving to another state, taking off work, missing school and paying out the nose she said, “I mean he really didn’t really even perform because he just played the album for us, but regardless, the whole reason we wanted to go was because we know that he’s getting near the end of his career so we don’t know the next time we’ll be ale to see him.
