What Do You Think of Kanye West Banning Media From Fashion Show?

Last week, Kanye West reportedly banned media from covering his fashion show in Paris. He was launching DW Kanye West and refuse to allow critics to see the line and report on it for fear of negative press. New York Times fashion writer Eric Wilson revealed that West had agreed to let media see the collection but changed his mind.
"I don't know about this. I got treated unfairly by the press last time. Why would I want to do this?" is what West allegedly said. He also said, "If they don't understand it, they don't understand it," about previous negative reactions to his line.
Was West being a diva? Is he being overly sensitive? Should he suck it up and let the experts offer their opinions on his attire and then have them battle it out in the court of public opinion of the consumer?
