Kanye West not man enough for a skirt?

Looks like Kanye West wants to stay in the closet. Or at least that's where he wants his skirt to stay. After wearing a leather kilt onstage during the Watch the Throne Tour and during a Hurricane Sandy relief concert, West has reportedly contacted Getty Images to get the company to remove the photos from its website. The skirt, designed by Riccardo Tisci, didn't go over well with some of the rapper's fans, and West was mocked on Twitter by Chris Brown, which is surprising, because you'd think he'd appreciate the easy access. Rapper Lord Jamar, from the hip-hop group Brand Nubian, also got in on the shade, releasing a track called "Lift Up Your Skirt," with the lyrics, "He introduced the skinny jeans to the rap scene/Then he wore a fucking skirt on the video screen/Then he wore it again at a memorial/I can't pretend this shit ain't deplorable."
