As Oprah knows, Brad Pitt is officially “gay” for architecture. And as anybody with a TV is sure to hear this week, ad nauseam, some Katrina victims will be better off because of Brad’s avocation.

Ice Cube actually studied architecture at the Phoenix Institute of Technology. But so far, he’s just made comments about Katrina. (And had beef with Oprah.)

Cube told Blender: “I liked architecture at one point. I got turned onto it by a teacher. I thought if this rap thing didn’t work, then I could make a career of it.”

For the record, if I was a box-office draw like Cube, I wouldn’t let Brad Pitt kick my ass at anything.
