He's been tagging along for the Great Kardashian Armenian Heritage Trip of 2015, but last night Kanye West took some time to have some fun of his own when he threw a free gig in Swan Lake in Yerevan. Quite literally, in the lake.
After getting through about six songs, which was livestreamed by local newscast Arajin Live, Ye stepped back in the middle of "Good Life", making sure everyone in the crowd could see him, said "We're gonna do something different this time!" and just, jumped in the lake.
Look how happy he is!!

When he surfaced he tried to carry on with the song, but it was pretty clear to see his mic was long gone by that point. But Kanye happily splashed around while mad fans leapt in after him and swarmed him. You can watch the actual jump and the aftermath below:
Seriously, we can't get over his excited wee face.

After he was pulled to safety from the lake, police shut the gig down, and fans slowly started to disperse after realising he probably wasn't coming back out. We assume he was busy backstage burying his phone in rice.
But to answer the question on everybody's mind: Yes, Kanye lake water has been bagged and is available for you to buy.
