Crucial Update

Kanye and North Both Fell Asleep While Baby Shopping

Being a dad is tough, but being a dad who is also Kanye West is tougher. Imagine: You just dropped your third fashion collection and an album via a highly choreographed spectacle at Madison Square Garden, you've got important fabric industry trade shows to attend, and you spend the other 99% of your time coming up with headline-making tweets about your maybe-but-probably-not $53 million in debt.

Therefore, it's only fair that shopping for baby necessities is slightly lower on Kanye West's list of "things I should probably be awake for."

"So today we went baby shopping with @johnlegend & @chrissyteigen Kanye & North were a little too quiet," Kim Kardashian wrote on Instagram. "We found them passed out in the middle of the store #TheRealLifeOfPablo."

Theory: The "Pablo" referenced in Kanye's new album title is actually just an extremely exhausted father who likes to take naps in public.
