    such a loss, yo… i went to the concert in glasgow on tuesday, kanye was phenomenal, performed his heart out.

    that tour was the perfect distraction. from my heart, i worry about him now that it over and he has to go back to his life without his mama. i dont know him and he dont know me, but he is in my prayers, forreals.
