The theory that Yeezus is a sunlight-abhorring, blood-craving dark prince has gained (tongue-in-cheek) traction in certain social media circles after proof of his undead-ness surfaced in, of all places, Vogue.
The evidence boils to what appears (or, rather, doesn't appear) in one of the images from the magazine's April spread, featuring West, 36, and fiancée Kim Kardashian, 33.
It all started when BuzzFeed editor Katherine Miller tweeted the above photo — and pointed out that Kanye is not reflected in the mirror in the back of the room.
Let's break down the arguments.
— It's clear that his image does not appear in the mirror. And everyone knows that vampires don't reflect in mirrors.
— Kanye appears poised to bite Kim's neck on the magazine's cover.
—This fan-made alternative "Yeezus" cover pretty much sums it up.
The Case Against Kanye Being a Vampire:
— The lack of reflection could have a more mundane explanation. Kim's head could be blocking out the mirror. The angle of the image could account for the missing reflection. Or perhaps this is just a bad Photoshop job.
— Kanye is often photographed in daylight, and vampires can't go out during the day.
— Oh, and there's the fact that VAMPIRES AREN'T REAL. (Sorry, "Twilight" fans.)
Just to be safe, Yahoo reached out to Vogue, but the mag isn't commenting. We've also stocked up on garlic and stakes.
