Kanye West wants to pay you to attend his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show/album release event at Madison Square Garden. We’re serious. Yeezy is holding casting calls for extras and the brand is offering $80 in exchange for eight hours of your time. This surely won’t please the die-hard Kanye West fans who paid up to $150 for tickets to the sold-out show. But we’re kind of ecstatic.
After all, who wouldn’t want to be an extra at West’s Fashion Week extravaganza? You get to be “among the first in the world to hear the new album.” You’ll enjoy a performance by Italian contemporary artist Vanessa Beecroft. You’ll see Yeezy Season 3 in person and may possibly breathe the same air as Anna Wintour.
There will definitely be a Kardashian sighting: Kylie models in the show each season and the Kardashian-Jenner sisters always come out to support. And the brand is even providing meals and a bus shuttle to Long Island for rehearsal. Kanye, a simple selfie with Saint West would have sufficed.
Yeezy is looking for 1,200 extras in total so act fast. And yes, we’ve already submitted our application.
