Kanye West Isn't Alone: A History of Musicians Wearing Straitjackets

Kanye West Isn't Alone: A History of Musicians Wearing Straitjackets

Over the past few months, we've seen footage of Kanye West performing in some rather interesting outfits, one of which closely resembled a Yeti. But he outdid himself during a show tonight in Abu Dhabi. The G.O.O.D. Music leader took the stage rocking a mask with some flowing hair and as for his get-up? A straitjacket and white pants.

Some will be sure to label the outfit as weird and crazy...which is probably Kanye's exact point. Like, "Hey, you think I'm crazy? Here I am in a straitjacket." But here's the thing: Yeezy's not the only artist to rock a straitjacket, not even close. Over the years, artists from almost every genre have worn the white coat, and you can peep some examples below.
