So, Kanye West did a thing. On Wednesday, February 14, Kanye returned to Instagram after an eight-month hiatus in a way that only Kanye would. As a "sweet" Valentine's Day gesture to his wife, Kim Kardashian, the rapper posted over 50 images of other celebrity couples -- all within nine hours -- leading up to images of him and Kim (of course). Cute, right? However, his choice of couples has the Internet a little ... confused. 

  • Kanye's big return to the social platform began with a cute, handmade Valentine's Day card to Kim.

  • Then came the overflow of low-quality, vintage images of celeb couples throughout history. However, the couples Kanye chose to showcase is the part that fans aren't quite understanding because the vast majority of them are known for being controversial.

    Although Ye did post some happy couples (Barack and Michelle Obama, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith), many of them were known for being abusive, toxic, or tragic ( Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, Britney Spears and Kevin Federline, John F. Kennedy and Jackie O). He even included some people multiple times ... with different partners. For example, Pam Anderson was shown with Tommy Lee, Bret Michaels, and Kid Rock. 

  • We're not really sure what the message is here ...

  • One of the last images he posted was of Kim's parents, Kris Jenner and the late Robert Kardashian.

    Aww, that's sweet!

  • The build up resulted in this cute candid photo, which he simply captioned: "Kimye."

  • The last image he posted was another, more recent paparazzi photo of him and Kim.

    He also captioned this photo: "Kimye." 

  • Of course, many fans were pleased with Kanye's return to Instagram.

  • His choice of celeb couples had many people a little concerned.

  • And plenty were just plain confused.

  • People were also admittedly overwhelmed by the fact that he decided to post over 50 photos in less than a day.

  • And we all couldn't help but notice that Jay Z and Beyonce were NOT included!

  • Some are wondering if this interesting project means new music on the way?

  • Well, although we are confused, we're sure Kim loved it.
