Back in 2013 Kanye West shocked fans by working with notoriously racist performance artist Vanessa Beecroft [click here if you missed that].
Vanessa, who also collaborated with Kanye for Yeezy Season 3, says working with Kanye makes her Black by proxy....
Vanessa tells W Magazine
"When I work with Kanye I am liberated by the fact of being a female, what is considered a white person. I am free from the schemes of the art world, I gain another audience. I am protected by Kanye’s talent. I become black. I am no longer Vanessa Beecroft, and I am free to do whatever I want because Kanye allows it."
