Kanye West has been spotted in public for the first time since being admitted to the UCLA Medical Center on November 21st after having a very public mental breakdown. A picture uploaded initially by Giovanni Leonardo Bassan depicted the 39-year-old rapper at the Rick Owens “Furniture” exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles looking much blonder than usual. Taking a cue from his wife, perhaps?

Well, hair bleach is a much healthier of dealing with your problems than, say, lambasting your friends in front of thousands of people at a concert. Plus, the lighter locks look pretty good! Maybe this is a whole new Kanye, and anyone who has ever suffered through a hard time knows that starting over requires a dramatic new hairdo. Just ask any girl who chops off her hair after being dumped.
