Whether or not you believe in Yeezus, you probably know that Kanye West sees himself as a Christ-like figure. This was apparent during a free concert Kanye put on last night in Yerevan, Armenia, where he’s been joining Kim and Khloe on their highly publicized pilgrimage to the Kardashian motherland.
During the performance, on the banks of Swan Lake in downtown Yerevan, West leapt into the lake while performing “Good Life.” As he stumbled and treaded through the shallow lake, he appeared to channel Jesus by trying to walk on water. It didn’t go so well. But fans jumped in after him, perhaps hoping to baptize themselves in the power and light that is Kanye. While he didn’t succeed in walking on water, it made for a pretty classic Kanye moment.
Kim recapped the event on Instagram, writing, “What a crazy night! Kanye wakes me up & says he’s doing a free concert in Yerevan, Armenia! I throw on sweats & we head out! Thousands of people were there! Kanye jumped in swan lake to be closer to the crowd on the other side & so many people jumped in too! It was such an exciting crazy night! So happy I got to rock out with everyone in Armenia on our last night here!!!! #EpicNight #ArmenianPride.”
Remember, 2015 Kanye West is now a little more humble, and a lot more fun.
