Lil Wayne Addresses Criticism Over His Fashion Choices
There’s been plenty of speculation and head scratching over why YMCMB bossman Lil Wayne continues to grace stages, television screens and even his children’s birthday parties wearing skin tight pants that were originally made for women.
Too many mollys? Too much syrup? Not enough testosterone? Well, Weezy’s ready to put all the talk to rest once and for all.
He recently sat down with MTV to answer the million dollar question.

To say that Lil Wayne marches to the beat of his own drum would be an understatement, so it’s no surprise then that the YMCMB honcho is totally comfortable with his image and style. Following his 2011 VMAs performance Weezy’s animal print jeggings made headlines for weeks, but he never let it bother him.
“I just did it because it’s what I felt like doing,” Wayne said of his attire, looking back on that night. “I do reflect on that. I look at things like [that and think] ‘wow. ‘I got so criticized.”
“I get all [of these] questions about, ‘why you got all these tattoos on your face?’ what does that mean?” he continued, explaining some of the other criticisms he’s received. “You can’t turn on the TV and find an artist without a tattoo somewhere…if you don’t [have a tattoo] you’re tryna be too different. If you don’t have a tattoo, you’re Drake!”
Daayyyuuumm. Even Wayne knows his best-selling artist is a marshmallow man. Drizzy might as well just go ahead and embrace it all the way to the bank. We won’t be mad.
