You may not know that Kanye West—the eclectic business mogul best known for his muppet shows, model wrangling, blogging, and MacBook stress-testing—is also a bit of a fashionista. He loves the clothes and whatnot! So much so that he wants to take time off from his other ventures and go intern in a fashion house. Celebrity fashion-related intern trend now officially official!
- Hockey star Sean Avery takes initiative and scores an internship at Vogue, because he loves fashion so much. He gets to do traditional intern tasks such as posing shirtless. Later he makes lots of straight sex jokes.
- Ryan Adams, musician and romantic icon to Sheila, interns for BlackBook magazine, in order to get publicity for his album or something. His fashion does not noticeably change afterwards.
- And now, Kanye says he wants to intern for either Louis Vuitton or Raf Simons. He hopes to learn enough to actually release his own fashion line, something that was scheduled to happen several years ago.
- Three's a trend! [NYT; pic via. Kanye also dabbles in music, allegedly.]
