Mean Betty on Kanye West
Cancelled concerts, no clothing line … Mean Betty’s musings on poor, dear Kanye West.
Well, well … fresh on the heels of the news that Lady GaGa decided to pull out of her tour with Kanye West (and dears you know you’re in trouble when that particular Lady is too much of a lady to be seen with you), comes the revelation that Kanye’s clothing line is folding before it ever even … well … unfolded. Shame!
Kanye, who certainly considers himself not only the world’s greatest musician but a high-ranking member of the fashion elite, has been noodling away on his line with Pastelle clothing for what seems like an eternity. In the meantime, of course, when he hasn’t been busy stuffing his fashionably shod foot in his mouth, he’s been a fixture on the Fashion Week scene and collaborating with everyone from Nike to Louis Vuitton. Because who doesn’t want their feet to remind them of Kanye’s big mouth?
But, precious pets, word is, the line he’s been working on for ever so long is, alas, never coming out. The sad, sad news comes a mere couple of days after photos of said line hit the web. Mean Betty just can’t imagine why this could be true, but she does hear that Kanye will be coming out with a different line bearing his own name at some point in the not too distant future, or maybe never, who knows. (Because who doesn’t want everything on their body to remind them of Kanye’s big mouth?). The mysterious shut-down of the Pastelle line is really a most startling turn of events, considering Kanye’s interview with Details magazine this past March in which he, in his typically modest, self-depreciating fashion, said:
“There’s nothing more to be said about music. I’m the f***ing end-all, be-all of music. I know what I’m doing … It’s on cruise control … Man, we talked about music for God knows how long … Now let’s talk about how my f***ing sweater didn’t come back right from Korea. That’s what’s interesting me.”
Ah, yes, quite “interesting” Kanye! Guess those Koreans didn’t come through after all, eh?
