Why was Aziz Ansari popping up all over New York Fashion Week this past season? Just because he felt like partying, it turns out. "[Fashion Week] just got me on the first week in a long time that I hadn't been working. If I have time off and I want to go out, it doesn't take much," he told the Observer. Regarding widespread speculation that he was jonesing for a fashion venture: "It could be Model Train Week and I would have been out there every night, and people would have been like 'Aziz Ansari is the face of model trains.'"
