After over a week spent in the hospital due to an exhaustion-induced breakdown, many were relieved to hear when news broke yesterday that Kanye West is back at home on the road to recovery. And making more music at that.

Now he has made his first public appearance since his last fateful night of the Saint Pablo Tour at a Rick Owens exhibition.

But there’s a real shocker involved: Kanye is now blonde!!!

According to various reports, he seemed happy and relaxed.

Meanwhile, the rapper – who cancelled all his remaining tour dates shortly before being admitted to hospital – is thought to already be working on new music.

TMZ claims Kanye is comparing his recent mental health issues, and his subsequent eight-day stay in hospital, to the near-fatal car accident he was involved in back in 2002 and the sudden death of his mother Donda in 2007.

The dad-of-two reportedly feels that those incidents spawned some of his best-ever work, such as the hit single Through The Wire.

Earlier this week, rumours began to swirl that the reality star was planning to divorce her husband of two years, but they have been shot down.

Well lets see how things for the superstar will go now that he is out.
