Kanye West Takes A Break From Music To Intern For Fashion Designer

Hip-Hop superstar Kanye West has reportedly announced plans to step aside from music and focus on exploring fashion as a possible intern.
According to the New York Times, the mega producer is looking to diversify his portfolio by expanding his knowledge of style and clothing design by offering his free services at a clothing branch along the lines of Louis Vuitton and Raf Simons.
"I was blown away from the planet when he told me," Simons told 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."
While no official word or statement from Ye confirming the new move has been released yet, the rapper has hinted at his intention of pursuing a more focused path in the fashion world.
"I want to and will be the real thing," Ye previously wrote in a blog entry. "I will not just be a 'celebrity designer.'"
In related news, the Grammy winning artist has received six nominations for the upcoming 51st Grammy Awards ceremony in California next year.
Ye will look to bring home gold in various categories including "Song of the Year" for his collaboration with Estelle on their hit record "American Boy."
Despite releasing 808's and Heartbreak last week and landing at No. 1 on Billboard's Top 200, Ye's fourth album will not be eligible for any form of recognition until the next awards show.
The 51st Grammy Awards ceremony is scheduled to air Sunday, February 8, 2009 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
