Oh, shoot. Kanye West's plans for his clothing line fell through. This devastating news comes, oddly enough,right after pictures from the line's lookbook were leaked online yesterday. Even though Kanye has been sporting fashions from his label to award shows, promoting it in his song "Stronger" ("Specially in my Pastelle or my Bape shit"), and teaming up with designers like Ksubi and Louis Vuitton, he is apparently ditching the label. This also comes after his tragic VMA debacle with Taylor Swift, as well as his cancelled tour with Lady GaGa. Maybe Kanye is being smart by taking a break from fashion world. Hopefully Dina Lohan will follow his lead!—Phillip Picardi
