Kanye West Not Attending Fashion School in England

UK tabloid The Sun falsely reported that rapper Kanye West had applied to (and had yet to be accepted to) London's prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design — whose astonishingly awesome alumni include Stella McCartney and the late Alexander McQueen — to study for a Master's degree in fashion. While we cannot deny that West is styling and has fabulous fashion sense, he is not looking for a new career and will not be attending this institution.
The paper also reported that West flew to London last week to meet with the head of the College's fashion program, professor Louise Wilson. The paper did say West had not been accepted.
In a statement to MTV News, a spokesperson for Central Saint Martins said that West had no plans to study fashion at the school, adding that while he did visit last week, it wasn't to check up on an application for admission. "Kanye West is not enrolling in [the] MA Fashion [program] at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design," Jo Ortmans, press officer for Central Saint Martins, stated via email. "He visited the college last week on unrelated matters."
There you have it.
Do you think Kanye West should explore a career in fashion, given his sense of style?
