Kanye West's shoe servant

Kanye West pays someone to clean his shoes.

The 'Stronger' singer boasts he is so rich he hires someone to "take care" of his shoes - all 450 pairs of them.

He said: "I hire someone specially to take care of my shoes. They clean them, box them and take a picture of them so it's easier to find them."

Kanye recently announced he had changed his name after launching a new range of footwear for Louis Vuitton, which was unveiled during Paris Fashion Week last week.

In a video message on his blog, the rapper said: "Due to what has happened - what has happened so severely when the red shoes hit the runway, I was forced to change my name to Martin Louis the King Jr. Address me as such."

Kanye also announced that to help him carve a successful career as a clothes designer, he is going to embark on a fashion internship in London - allowing his music career to take a backseat.

He said: "I'm going to go and take an internship and just do something that's like completely normal, and just rap at the weekends or something."
