Kanye Taking a Break From Music to Focus on “Pastelle”

Yeezy is going to relax on the singing and vocoder bit for a while and focus on getting his gear line, Pastelle, off the ground by taking on some internships:

Kanye West is reportedly putting his music career on hold – in a bid to make a move on the fashion industry. The Stronger hitmaker – who last month said he “will go down as the voice of this generation” – is looking to diversify his portfolio by expanding his knowledge of style and clothing design by offering his free services at a fashion house – preferably Louis Vuitton or Raf Simons. “I was blown away from the planet when he told me,” Simons told the New York Times. “I know he’s very serious about this – I don’t take it as a joke – but how can I imagine him being my intern? It’s a very extreme situation.” Although Kanye, 31, is yet to confirm the reports, the star has hinted at his intention of pursuing a more focused path in the fashion world. “I want to and will be the real thing,” he previously wrote in a blog entry. “I will not just be a ‘celebrity designer.'”

Diving into world of fashion via an internship will definitely allow him to learn a lot. But, if he is looking to set any type of a trend with regard to working for free, he shouldn’t hold his breath.

    I will say that unlike other ‘celebrity designers’ at least Kanye is taking time to actually learn about fashion and do the same leg work as other unknown fashion wanna be’s!! I have to respect him for that. Let’s just hope he doesn’t throw a fit when he is asked to go get coffee or something.

  • ♥Ayita Loves Adam♥

    Kanye West is a friend of Dorothy. He throws more temper tantrums than a Flaming Gay guy at a shoe sale.

  • Jaye

    Well,

    If you’re going to do it… do it the right way. If this is true I commend him for taking this route.
