​People Are Rinsing Lil Wayne For His ‘Bird Woman’ Outfit

I'd imagine trying to find an outfit for a big stage performance would be pretty tricky. Sure, you'd want something that looks good, but something breathable that lets you move, nothing that you'd get too sweaty in - there's a lot to think about.

Well, judging from his recent performance at the College Football Playoff National Championship at Levi's Stadium, California, on Monday night, Lil Wayne doesn't give a shit about all of that.

Not only did he wear a massive, full-length fur coat (toasty), huge sunglasses (highly impractical) and baggy over-the-knee boots (just plain weird), he also just seemed to don every other item of clothing that he owned.

Viewers soon started took to Twitter to slate his fashion choices - many saying he resembled ET when he was dressed up in random clothes.

Others' references were a bit more topical:

Someone else said he looked like a certain Home Alone character:

"Lil Wayne out here looking like a power puff girls Villain," another person tweeted.

"Lil Wayne looks like the Hamburglar #Halftime #CFBChampionship," someone else said.

One Twitter user got particularly creative, writing: "Weezy looks like a dragon wrangler about to sell you some magic legumes underneath a bridge."

Other suggestions ranged from a Furby to Cruella de Vil, which are both also strong shouts.

I mean, I'm all up for the idea that people should be able to wear what the hell they want (perhaps within reason) without backlash, but there's no denying it's a slightly bizarre combo.

Mind you, if you're a multi-Grammy Award-winning rapper who's probably absolutely minted, I guess you can do whatever you like.
