Kanye West has been through some shit these past few months. 

His wife, Kim Kardashian West, was assaulted and robbed in Paris. He canceled the remainder of his Saint Pablo Tour. He was hospitalized. Then he re-emerged with blond hair. And then he met with Donald Trump

Now, for reasons unknown to us just yet, West has dyed his hair yellow and pink, looking like he's about to catch all the Lucky Charms.

After a dark year like his, you can't really blame West for wanting to put a bit of fun and whimsy into his appearance. 

But Twitter, of course, has its thoughts — and many questions.  

Did West mean to turn himself into a walking, talking scoop of rainbow sherbet?

Or was the inspiration a cup of Trix yogurt? 

Or maybe a snow cone? 

Did he dye it to reveal his need to become our generation's Dennis Rodman? 

Or his need to look like Carlton from that one episode of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

Did he dye it pink to match his sister-in-law Kylie Jenner

Or match one of Rihanna's rainbow outfits? 

The world will probably never know. 

That is, unless he hops on Twitter, as he is wont to do, and tells us himself. 

How much do you trust the information in this article?
