Livin' on a prayer.

"Mercy mercy me, that Murcielago Maybach."

Forget a Nefertiti chain, Yeezy went for a full sarcophagus mask.

Chuuch...

No, really, he's in a church.

Well, he's finally done it: Kanye West's gone full Beatles status on us. Sure, he's been selling out stadiums and moving millions of records for nearly a decade now, but he's finally gotten to the whole "We're more popular than Jesus"-part of his career, except in his case, he's declared himself a full-blown deity.
