Donning a silver bejeweled jacket and a pair of blue contact lenses, Kanye West continued his transformation into Mr. Freeze Monday night, giving his thoughts on the finer points of eating reindeer meat at the 2016 Met Gala.
“What’s Iceland like? What can you eat in Iceland?” André Leon Talley, the former American editor-at-large at Vogue magazine, asked Kim Kardashian on the red carpet, referencing the couple’s recent family vacation.
“Horse,” Kim responded in complete seriousness. “Reindeer.”
Talley wanted to know what reindeer meat tasted like, but before Kim could say “it tastes like chicken,” Yeezy jumped in with the timing of a comedic genius. “It tastes like Christmas,” he nodded with a grin, basking in the glory of his immaculate joke.
According to The Iceland Monitor, the real reason the Wests flew to Iceland last month was to shoot a new music video for a track from The Life of Pablo. And yes, in case you were wondering, reindeer steaks really are considered a delicacy in Iceland.
