After being ordered 250 hours of community service back in March for assaulting a photographer, Kanye West is now doing his time teaching students about fashion.
Yeezus is currently playing professor to students at the L.A. Trade and Technical College, reports Yahoo. Tiffany Lavonne, who is enrolled at the said school, couldn’t contain her excitement as she posted a proof shot of the rapper on Instagram.
he photo had West, wearing a long sleeved white shirt, standing in the middle between Lavonne and another unidentified male.
avonne captioned the picture with, “Kanye West speaking to the graduating fashion students at L.A. Trade Tech college about the business of fashion and his personal experience within the fashion industry. This is so dope!”
According to Yahoo, the rapper-producer certainly has the credentials to teach the subject, what with his recent marriage to Kim Kardashian who is known for being friends with popular fashion designers. The couple even met with Valentino Garavani in Paris for a pre-wedding brunch. Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci designed Kim’s wedding dress as well as Kanye and baby North’s outfits for the nuptials in May.
In fact, the “Stronger” rapper already had a practice run in teaching fashion when he spoke to an assembly at the Harvard Design School last year.
anity Fair reported the rapper as telling the audience that he really does “believe the world can be saved through design.”
further said, “I believe utopia is actually possible, but we’re led by the least noble, the least dignified, the least tasteful, the dumbest, and the most political… In no way am I politician; I’m usually, at my best, politically incorrect.”
His community service resulted from his criminal battery and attempted grand theft charge. He allegedly attacked a paparazzo in LAX last July. The rapper did not contest the misdemeanor battery charges and was sentenced to 250 hours of community service and 24 days of anger management counseling.
