The 2016-present section currently reads "In June, West released a controversial video for "Famous," which depicted wax figures of several celebrities (including West, Kardashian, Taylor Swift, presidential candidate and businessman Donald Trump, comedian Bill Cosby, and former president George W. Bush) sleeping nude in a shared bed"

This should be updated to reflect that Trump is now the President-elect: ""In June, West released a controversial video for "Famous," which depicted wax figures of several celebrities (including West, Kardashian, Taylor Swift, President-elect Donald Trump, comedian Bill Cosby, and former president George W. Bush) sleeping nude in a shared bed" MattCloudy (talk) 13:25, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Kim's snapshat story proved that Taylor Swift has validated the first line me and taylor swift might still have sex but it does not showcase her validating or acknowledging the second line. That is because Kanye has showcased the first line in a humoristic way, and as a joke, she stated that many fans would believe it is because he made her famous, but she was not informed that he would seriously put that in his song, which he did. She did not get the final product of the song, and when she did, she simply did not like it because of the undertones of it. She may have alluded to a twitter conversation where she refused posting the song of her twitter, but none of her statements contradict with what was said in their phone call. The fact that this page is sensationalizing a fabricated story among others is simply disheartening. 108.63.183.55 (talk) 03:10, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

I think that this article does not quite cover the popular and sneaker culture impact of the Yeezy 350 Boost and the "hype" generated with each release. One simple change that could be included is a mention that the Yeezy 350 Boost was awarded the Footwear News 2015 Shoe of the Year [1]. This could be included directly after "He followed with Season 2 later that year at New York Fashion Week." to keep with chronological order. -- Cameronjbird (talk) 07:15, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

This should be added to end of fashion section, relevant due to information of the impending showing of Yeezy Season 5 and the CFDA time scheduling conflict:

"On January 31st, 2017, West announced his fashion show for Yeezy Season 5 would be showing at Pier 59 on February 15th. The time slot conflicted directly with New York Fashion Week's prime time schedule set by the CFDA which had slotted Marchesa for the same slot in between Anna Sui and Thom Browne.[1][2]"
