That’s Professor West to You! Kanye Lands Cozy Community Service Assignment
Garbage duty, be damned! Kanye West has landed a far more glamorous (and less smelly) form of court-ordered community service.
In April, West reached a plea deal with Los Angeles prosecutors stemming from an altercation with photographer Daniel Ramos at Los Angeles International Airport in July 2013. As part of the agreement, the newlywed must complete 250 hours of community service.
Instead of the can-collecting, street-sweeping duty most offenders get stuck with, Yeezy will be “serving his time” sharing his (self-assessed) style saaviness with fellow fashionisto/as. Kanye will volunteer (under mandate of the State of California, of course) some of his extensive knowledge of the fashion industry at the Los Angeles Trade Technical College.
Go ahead and laugh, but the Vogue coverguy might have some wise advice to pass along. Kanye launched the failed House of Donda fashion label back in 2011. He’s also a frequent elbow-rubber of Devil in Prada Anna Wintour.
