Kanye West is creating controversy yet again, but this time it has nothing to do with him being the greatest rapper of all time. A report posted on the NewYorkTimes.com reads: “Mr. West has announced that he wants to take time off from his music career and intern at a fashion house. Preferably, Louis Vuitton or Raf Simons.”
The music mogul already has a very impressive design résumé that includes a jewelry collaboration with Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, a men’s shoe line for Louis Vuitton and his own clothing line, Past Tell. With such an impressive fashion career, we wonder how West will benefit from such a subordinate roll. We guess when it comes to fashion, the self-proclaimed “voice of this generation” only rules the stage and not the catwalk.
Stayed tuned for more news on this hip-hop-meets-high fashion saga.
