Kanye West to open 21 'Pablo' pop-up stores worldwide Friday

NEW YORK (AP) — Kanye West fans can buy a taste of "The Life of Pablo" this weekend following the rapper-turned-fashion mogul's announcement of 21 pop-up stores worldwide that will be open for just three days, beginning Friday.

West tweeted a map Wednesday night with red dots indicating the stores' locations. Thirteen stores will be in major cities in the U.S. Others will be in Toronto, London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Singapore, Sydney, Melbourne and Cape Town.

West is expanding the pop-up store concept following similar events in New York, Los Angeles and Paris earlier this year. West says the New York event generated $2 million in sales of items including thrift store jackets customized by West for $400.
