Kanye's Valentine to Baltimore

Yes, Kim was also "in the house."

Last night's Kanye West show at the Arena may have opened as many minds as it blew. From the spiritual-journey concept and artful staging (by Vanessa Beecroft!) to the rousing set list, the two-and-a-half hour concert upped the ante for Kanye's peers, though, at this point, he doesn't seem to have any. From start to finish, it was a visual and musical feast, and, for my money, the Yeezus material won the day.

Because it was Valentine's Day, lots of folks in the audience wondered if Kim Kardashian would make an appearance, and Kanye stoked those expectations by noting she was "in the house." Thankfully, she didn't materialize, because it would have distracted from the performance art at hand.

And Kanye's expected rant, which comes with every show and lasts anywhere from 10 to 40 minutes, felt more like a guidance counselor pep talk. For about 15 minutes, he spoke about the importance of love and self confidence. It was his valentine to Baltimore.
