Kanye West Blogs About Alexander McQueen's Death: 'We Are All So Hurt'

Rapper Kanye West recently blogged about the death of designer Alexander McQueen, writing:

I'm tormented by the need to create. With the loss of MCQueen I feel like we lost one of the faces of modern creativity's Mount Rushmore. There were times that the only thing that kept me on this earth was the need and responsibility to create. Maybe MCQueen felt his job was done because his last collection was the greatest of the decade. We are all so hurt. I know we're selfish because he brought us so much joy and inspiration.

I know how it feels when the night demons come. We can't let them control our hands and feet. Sometimes when it hurts so bad we have to just lay in the bed. Just lay in bed and don't move please, I know how it feels. I wish MCQueen could have just been still. Don't let the psychiatrists give you their drugs because it slows down your wings.

West has also been known to dabble in fashion and previously collaborated on a shoe line with Louis Vuitton.
