Kanye West Is Not Heading to College

Kanye West Is Not Heading to College

Published March 8, 2011

Last week, rumors began swirling that Kanye West was ready to take his love of fashion more seriously by applying to study for a masters degree in fashion at Central Saint Martins College in London.

According to the U.K.’s The Sun, Kanye flew to London to meet with school officials about his application. A source said to them: "Kanye spends a lot of time with fashion students and often hooks up with Central's arty pupils when he is in London.”

As much as entertainers love to talk about fashion, very few of them seem to know enough about fashion outside of what their stylists tells them. So it would be impressive to see someone go that far to prove their dedication, right? Maybe, but Kanye won’t be the one to do it. As it turns out, those rumors have been effectively shut down.

Popeater.com reached out to the school, and the university's press officer Jo Ortmans responded in an email:

"Kanye West has not applied for a place on M.A. Fashion at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. He visited the college last week on unrelated matters.”

In his defense, he does seem to know way more about fa-shon then the next red bottom crying rapper.
