Kanye West Balenciaga Snub Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2008/2009

In an uncharacteristic act of maturity, Kanye West has defended Spanish fashion house Balenciaga for denying him a seat at its exclusive Paris Fashion Week showing last week. Kanye was denied entry to the show after designers blasted his image as being “too hip-hop.”

Kanye says: “My first love is for fashion and I appreciate just being in a position to afford to be able to spend a week in Paris visiting shows. “I totally love and respect any designer that won’t let me come to their show. It’s their show. They don’t owe me anything. “I just love the clothes! Lex (his fiancee Alexis Phifer) and I are not there to take pictures. I don’t have an album about to drop. My tour is sold out. I love fashion and this is one of the funniest things we can make time for. “Balenciaga is one of the illest lines right now and I don’t feel any type of way about not getting in! There’s always a catch 22 in being a celeb – your motives are always questioned – but only time will show my true love.”
