Forget dropping out of college, Kanye

. . . Make it music too, dog.

Recently Kanye West has made (internet) headlines stating his intentions to take a lowly internship with fashion designers Louis Vuitton or Raf Simons. He says he wants to learn the business before he launches his own clothing line next year. Hey, I love publicity stunts as much as the next guy—I'm at Crispin, it's pretty much our thing—but this is a pretty lame one.

But even if I don't wholly approve, I think Vuitton or Simons should take him up on it. That way he will stop making music, and leave us alone. I don't tend to follow too much mainstream music, but every once in a while I'll catch a new Kanye song, and they only seem to be getting worse. Peep his performance on Saturday Night Live last night, and please explain to me how he thinks he "will go down as the voice of this generation of this decade."

Besides his pathetic singing, his stage show is seriously lacking. You can't hide behind giant screens of sweet animations when you're standing right in front of them and sucking. I fully support Stephen Colbert's efforts.

Dear Kanye, please leave the music to the musicians and go grab some coffee for Mr. Simons. It could be your best work yet.
