4. Kanye West Raps In Leather Skirt

Many were shocked when Kanye West appeared onstage wearing a black, leather skirt. However, Kanye wore a similar look for his entire Watch The Throne tour. To be fair, he isn’t the only brave man to rock a skirt. Jared Leto did it in a shoot for Vogue UK in 2011.
