AMP Music Minute February 28th
Yesterday (Feb 27) Vibe magazine caught up with Weezy. While talking, he revealed that he had a new shoe line in the works, “I do have a shoe coming out soon but it won’t be Trukfit. I just don’t want to say yet because I haven’t dotted the line yet. But it’s done,” he told the magazine.
He instead plans to release the shoes in collaboration with an established shoe company but wouldn’t dish on who he was working with. He did narrow it down, however, saying that it won’t be a major shoe company like Nike or Reebok. “Nah, it’s not a Nike or Reebok, I can tell you that much.”
The official announcement will come in a couple weeks Weezy assured us. So hold out for a couple weeks and you can get the new Weezy’s! Or if you are looking for something more high class, we hear Kanye’s got some shoes out too!
Adele is a BRIT at heart. Though at her appearance there weeks ago, she ended it on a kinda sour note (that’s how you’d classify flip the bird, right?), Adele has made it clear that she has no plans to go anywhere.
She’s already discussed her disdain for fame and this falls right into the same idea. The UK is her home, she grew up there, she was raised there, she loved and lost there.
And despte her massive success here in the US, something tells us that if Adele can’t dig the paparazzi in her homeland, she would be completely put off by the army of paparazzi that reside here in Los Angeles.
We think it’s a good more for her to stay put. She just better keep churning out that music.
Kanye West has thrown his hat into the fashion ring and the reviews are in. After unveiling his very first line last year, Yeezy is already working on his new line for this year’s Paris Fashion Week. But instead of just dressing up your body, ladies, he’s also spent a good time on footwear and people were digging it!
Though he was noticeably absent from New York’s Fashion Week (probably busy working on his shoes) he snuck into London Fashion Week, where he was able to show his newest shoe line.
Surprisingly Kanye collaborated with Australian designer Dion Lee, whom Yeezy has been friends with for some time. Though he’s designed women’s shoes before, this is his first full line.
The shoes were a subtle black, classic pointed heel and accentuated, not overpowered, the models, so they got rave reviews. With Paris Fashion Week on the horizon, we can only wait to see how ‘Ye takes all that negative criticism he got last year and turns it into something everyone wants to be a part of.
He kind of has a knack for that, doesn’t he?
