Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby show invites have gone out and they’re pretty spectacular.
The invite is a a fully functional music box, complete with a spinning ballerina dancing to a lullaby version of Kanye’s “Hey Mama.”
Not only is the invite playing the baby daddy’s tune, but the ballerina bears a striking resemblance to Kim herself — just in case anyone forgets who this party is REALLY celebrating.
Kris Jenner, Shelli Azoff, wife of manager Irving Azoff, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian are hosting the party. Recommended attire: garden chic. Source
We love you very much. And we thought you loved us. Because you dress us in thefinest shoes known to man. But and however, when we got the memo that Uterus had a baby in it, we thought we were expressly clear when we informed you that we would need to be dressed in flats. We no longer care about fashion. WE only care about being able to breathe.
Your flagrant disregard for our heath…our lives even, is upsetting. This outright defiance is a cry for help and we have no choice to send you to boarding school where we hear they dress everyone’s feat in sensible shoes. You hurt us so we’re hurting you.
Kanye was performing at the Roseland Ballroom in NYC last night and he went on one of his infamous rants again.
He said (or yelled rather): ”One thing about me. I’m the worst kinda, worst kinda, worst kinda celebrity…because all I do is make real music” he fumes. “All I do is sit in the studio and make real, real shit. and that’s it. That’s mother*cking it. That’s mother*cking it. So I don’t want nobody trying to run up on me with no cameras, trying to sell pictures and shit to magazines, asking me no dumbass questions. throwing me off of my focus and shit. Harassing you all motherfucking day. I ain’t no mother*cking celebrity…
“[I had a friend ask me, 'Are you gonna go on] SNL and you’re going to do like a skit about the paparazzi and sh*t and like humanize yourself?’ I ain’t here to apologize to no motherfuckers man. It ain’t about me humanizing myself. At what point did I become unhuman where I had to turn myself back? Or maybe I was demonized. Or maybe I was treated inhumane and not human in that kind of situation. I ain’t no mother*cking celebrity. I ain’t running for office. I ain’t kissing nobody’s mother*cking babies. I drop your baby and you sue me and sh*t. I’m trying to make some music that inspires people to be the best they can be. I don’t want nobody to ask NOTHING ELSE OF ME. Don’t ask nothing else of me. Motherf*ckers chasing you down ’bout to make you crash and shit. And all they want is one nigga to laugh and sh*t. Hell nah I ain’t doing no mother*cking SNL skits, this my goddamn life. This ain’t no mother*cking joke. That’s it. Stop that sh*t right there.”
Kanye walked headfirst into a metal sign in the full view of the paps while walking into a restaurant with Kim He must have waited a while to let the embarrassment sink in because he walked back out of the restaurant to flip out on a photographer.
We recently reported that there were rumors that Kimye were getting hitched this summer after baby Kimya is born. But that’s not true. Kim’s rep tells E! News that the story is “100 percent false.” Source
Word is that Kim and Kanye have set a wedding date and plan to get married soon after their child is born in a lavish wedding.
Kim is set to exchange “I do’s” wearing an “ethereal white wedding dress,” the source said, and wants a location “where they can hear the waves and be married under the moon and stars.
Kanye has made it completely clear to Kim that he does not want any media at the wedding and they will not sell their wedding photos for profit.
“Instead, Kanye says they should consider a donation to one of Kim’s charities like the Skin Cancer Foundation, or Mattel Children’s Hospital in a deal around the wedding for a short film,” the insider said. Source
I’m surprised they’re even still getting married since they look so GD unhappy together. Shrugs. Congrats or good luck or whatever.
Poor Kim K. She just can’t win. Kim’s ex Ray J ants everyone to know that he had Kim first with his new single, “I Hit It First.”
In the song he sings, “She might move on to rappers and ballplayers / But we all know I hit it first/ I had her head going North and her ass going South / But now baby chose to go West/ … No matter where she goes or who she knows/ She still belongs in my bed.”
Sources are saying that Kanye is sick of Kim and is pulling away from her despite her being pregnant with his baby.
An insider said, “His passion for Kim has cooled. This is a man who was once so infatuated with Kim that he would do anything to win her love. Now he’s trying to get away from her, despite the fact that they’re having a baby.
“It’s making Kim very nervous. If Kanye abandons her and she ends up a single mom, it will be her worst nightmare.” Source
It does kinda seem like the second her pregnancy got out we haven’t really seen them together. It’s a little strange. But I don’t see him abandoning her.
Kanye and Kim were at JFK Airport the other day and an airline employee helped them bypass a mandatory security screening after they cleared customs and baggage. But when TSA heard what happened they pulled the two off their plane so a private screening could be conducted. This caused a 50 minute delay for the rest of the passengers on the plane.
TSA is investigating the incident and the airline employee who let West and Kardashian skip the mandatory security screening. Source
That’s some BS. If I were a passenger on that plane I would be PISSED!
An eyewitness saw Kim looking at rings at the Cartier store.
An employee said, “Kim has great taste and loves many of our pieces, such as this one, our Cartier d’Amour solitaire paved with diamonds. It’s a really exquisite engagement band, and of the finest diamonds you could buy.
“I showed her a few other ones from a set of different collections,” the employee adds. “She was more interested in this one (the Cartier d’Amour solitaire paved with diamonds) and making some adjustments to it. Kim wants her piece to be custom, something out of the ordinary, and we’re certainly happy to accommodate her.” Source
She should prolly get divorced first. I’m just sayin’. Although, in her defense Kris is dragging his feet like a mutha.
Kris doesn’t want to give Kim the divorce she so desperately is seeking because he wants her to admit the whole thing is a sham. But it looks like some of his friends are telling him that he needs to just settle the whole thing and walk away.
Kim wants him to pay her lawyer’s bill after making her suffer through this divorce that’s taking so long. Source
She, agreeably, is ridiculous. However, he needs to just give up on this whole thing. Because at this point he just looks like a vindictive asshole.
Word on the street is that Kim is mad at Kris for dragging along their divorce . She doesn’t want to still be married to him when she gives birth to Kanye’s baby.
She feels Kris is being “spiteful and vindictive” in dragging out the divorce — which has dragged on for nearly a year-and-a-half — for no reason. If they can’t settle out of court, the judge will set a trial date next month. Kim’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, thinks a trial would take 1 day. Kris’ lawyer thinks 5 days, because he wants to put reality TV on trial. Source
I know lurch feels bamboozled. But he needs to move the eff on already. And Kim, you shoulda thought about this before you not only stopped taking birth control, but also let Yeezy skeet off in you. I mean I learned how not to get pregz in 9th grade health class.
Kimmie and Kanye have found their love nest. The couple has bought an $11 million mansion. The 10,00 square foot pad is in Bell Air and they’ve already had it gutted so they can put their dream home in it’s place.
The new home will include a gym, movie theater, full hair and makeup salon, bowling alley, basketball court, and indoor and outdoor pool. Source
This isn’t surprising since they’re both ballin’ out of control. Plus they need a shiny new spot to raise their little buttlette.

Kanye and Kim were out to eat in South Beach and a camerawoman asked him if he congratulated Kim’s ex Reggie about his pregnant girlfriend. Kanye didn’t like it and tried to grab her camera. Word is that Kim seemed to smirk about the question but Kanye got mad and the photog fled the scene. Source
Kanye’s reportedly planning on throwing Kim a $1 million birthday party. He’s going to have the party on the private island of Pine Cay in Turks and Caicos. He’s gonna fly out osme of her friends, a five-star cook, and he’s also allegedly ordered her a Prada bag lined with a ‘KK’ print, a pink diamond bracelet and a Chanel dress.
A source said, “Kanye has never been shy of splashing out on the women he loves, but this time he’s pulling out all the stops with presents.” Source
Music to Kim’s ears. I bet Humphy woulda never done anything like that. He’d woulda prolly taken her for a nice 3-course special at Applebee’s.
Kanye has given his staff/entourage a makeover. A source said, “Kanye hasn’t been happy with the way his staff has been looking lately. He already talked to his stylist about keeping everyone in dark designer clothes.
“He’s really into his image. If they are around him, they need to be stylish and presentable.” Source

Kimmie is trying to lose weight so she can fit into her man’s clothing. A source said, “She was busting out of his clothes and even had to go a couple of sizes bigger on some of the dresses.”
Kim’s been in full on workout mode and even worked out with a trainer paid for by Kanye while she vacationed in Hawaii earlier this month. Source
Should he be paying for her trainer or making bigger clothes? I know she has a big tookus, but she’s actually a really small chick. If she’s bursting out of her clothes they must not go above a size 4. C’mon son!
Jay-Z is suing his former chef, Mike Shand, because he allegedly “failed to perform on significant aspects” of a deal to spice up the menu and state “the club has not been able to adequately replace the items and services (the) defendant was paid to provide.”
Shand’s lawyer, Vik Pawar, has now revealed the $1.5 million (£937,500) legal battle erupted because Shand refused to hand over the secret recipe for his popular spice mix.
Vik says, “The spice mix recipe that Mike developed is his own recipe. 40/40 terminated him, then had the audacity to sue him for his recipes. He gave them all apart from this spice mix because it is his own. Mike had a wonderful relationship with Jay Z and Beyonce for many years.” Source
Yea, it’s called a ‘secret’ recipe for a reason. You took his job, let the man have his sauce.
Sources say that Jay has been urging Yeezy to ask Kim to marry him. According to insiders Jay Z Star Magazine report, “Kanye West runs everything about his professional and personal life by Jay. When Kanye mentioned that he thinks Kim is a keeper, Jay said, “Then don’t risk losing her – put a ring on her finger!’
“Beyonce isn’t as keen on Kim as Jay is. She thinks Kanye should take a wait-and-see approach.” Source
Bey’s side eye is always primed and ready for Kim’s ass.
Kanye is pissed that Kim reached out to her first boyfriend, TJ Jackson, following news of the feud going on with the Jackson family.
Kim called TJ to let him know she’d help him out with his new kids.
A source said, “Kanye’s boiling! He told Kim to stay a million miles away from that crazy family, and not to get caught up in their drama – because he won’t stand for it! But his reaction’s made Kim apprehensive. Friends think that more and more, she sees that Kanye wants her at his constant beck and call – because he wants to shrink her life outside of their relationship!” Source
We know Kanye’s hissy fits are NOT good. Kimmie Cakes better get her act together before he throws a tantrum cus it won’t be pretty.
50 Cent recently said about Kanye’s feeling sabout Kim saying, “I mean … if that man feel like she’s perfect, then she’s perfect. He could mean it and you’ll end up singing the words to it because he’s Kanye.
“You know how it is? One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
He then said he didn’t know if there was such a thing as a perfect chick: “I’m not sure. The smartest guys I know have lost being a bad judge of character in that area.” Source
Um, that was uncalled for. Expect for Kanye to come for your ass, as he should.
This photo is all types of off. That baby is huge for 1 month old, Mason looks like Ernest Borgnine. And Kourtney’s shiny with weird brows. Someone needs to run this through the kiosk at Walgreens and check off the ‘Photo Fix’ box.
Kris Jenner said that she’s ready to support Kim if she and Kanye decide to get married.
When asked if marriage is on the horizon for Kim she said, “I don’t even have an answer for that. That’s so crazy. I really do not know. I think that as long as the kids are happy, I’m happy. Whatever floats their boat.” Source
Translation: I’ve already drawn up the contracts and the prenup. And action!
We hear that Kimmie and Kanye can’t wait to get married and pop out some babies.
“They’re seriously talking marriage. And yes, she would [accept his proposal],” a source close to the couple has confirmed to Us. “Kanye says he can’t wait to see her carrying his child. He says she will look beautiful pregnant.” Source
I think she’ll be HUGE! But that’s only cus I’m a hater.
At his sold out concert on Friday night at Revel Resorts in Atlantic City, Kanye West went off on urban gossip blog Mediatakeout.
He told the crowd, “If you have something to give the world, a lot of times the press a try to take everything negative. Just look at Mediatakeout they so fucking full of shit! Show your muthafucking face so I can smack the shit out you! Making up shit everyday day!
“I am flawed as a human being. I am flawed as a person. As a man I am flawed, but my music is perfect!
“This is the best that you gone get ladies and gentlemen, in this lifetime I’m sorry. You can go back to Beethoven or Sujit or you know, but as far as this lifetime go…this is all you got.”
Oprah Winfrey recently interviewed the Kardashians for her “Oprah’s Next Chapter” and she asked Kim about her love life. Kim revealed that she’s happy to be dating an older man.
She said, “Before, all my boyfriends were younger. I always dated 5 years younger. Now I just love that I’m with someone that’s a couple years older than me.”
She adds that she’s “totally growing up” after her divorce and surrounds herself with friends who are older and wiser. “I feel like I’ve had an epiphany over the past year from what I’ve been through and I am that changed person just from my own experiences.” Source
Kanye West is confirmed to appear on both Keeping up with the Kardashians and Kourtney & Kim Take New York.
When asked if Kanye would be making a couple of cameos this season Kim said, YES! “I want to show my life. If we are having dinner and he does show up, I’m sure we’re not going to go, ‘Stop the cameras!’
“I’m not going to be taking a bubble bath and drinking champagne or on a sex swing like Khloé [Kardashian Odom] and Lamar [Odom] do,” Kim added. “It’s not going to be like that.” Source
Oh boy…I’m secretly excited about this. These Kardashians have got the formula DOWN.
The other night Kim and Kanye went out for a night on the town and as they left the car, Kanye’s pants were seen hanging so low we could see half his thigh.
Well Kim cleared up the situation calling it a “wardrobe malfunction.”
She said, “He was getting out of the car and his belt got pulled by this hook on the car door and he was trying to pull it up quick and his belt was really heavy.
“It’s called a wardrobe malfunction,” sister Kourtney said.
“It was a wardrobe malfunction, but it wasn’t anything intentional,” Kim said. “It was not scandalous.” Source
I know backseat lovin’ when I see it.
Kris Jenner is reportedly pussing Kanye and Kim to get married on TV.
A source said, “Kris Jenner is ecstatic that Kim is dating Kanye; she can see their celebrity stock and wealth rising by the day. She is pushing hard for Kim to get her claws into Kanye and would love it if he proposed. She has already told Kim that if they make it down the aisle they are going to do it on camera again; there’s just too much money to be made for Kris to allow this to be done privately.
“You would think most moms would be keen for their daughter to take it slow, especially seeing as Kim’s divorce still isn’t finalized from the last fiasco. But, Kris just marks Kris Humphries down as a major mistake to be forgotten and is eager for Kim to move on to bigger and better things, which, she believes, Kanye definitely is.” Source
Um, did everyone forget what happened the last time Kim got married on TV?
Kanye Denies Abuse…
There were reports last month that Kanye West had been abusive to his ex-fiance, Alexis Phifer. Well Kanye has chosen to speak out via a nre remix to Chief Keef’s, “I Don’t Like.”
He rhymed, “They smile in my face is what I don’t like / They steal your whole sound, that’s a soundbite/ The media crucify me like they did Christ / They wanna find me not breathin’ like they found Mike /A girl’ll run her mouth only outta spite / But I’ll never hit a woman, never in my life.” Source
What do you guys think? Who’s lying? Kanye or Alexis?
Sources tell OK Magazine that Kim is looking at Kanye as a great father figure.
A source says, “Kim thinks Kanye would make a perfect baby daddy.
“Kim has been friends with Kanye for almost a decade, so she knows him so well. Now, both are ready for a serious romance.
“Kim will be 32 this year and always envisioned she’d be a mom by now. And Kanye’s 34. He’s said one of his goals is to be a dad, and he’s heavily involved with a foster-care program. He loves kids. She has no doubts he’ll make a great father.” Source
Oh Christ, these two are the last two people on earth who need to bring a child in the world…especially together.
Star magazine is reporting that Kim and Kanye are already fighting.
A source says, “Kim and Kanye had their first real fight at the beginning of April. Kim is obsessed with money, and it was starting to irritate him how that’s all she can talk about.”
During a date at NYC’s Serafina restaurant and a visit to toy store F.A.O. Schwarz, “She kept asking him about his touring revenue, the properties he owns and his savings. Kanye finally had to tell her to back off and chill out. He told her that she has nothing to worry about.
“She feels like she got burned by Kris Humphries because he wasn’t totally honest about his income. She wants to make sure that Kanye’s worth as much as she thinks.” If he is, “she’ll move forward with the relationship.
“She wants the kind of money where she can fly in private jets for the rest of her life. She knows she may not be able to work forever, so she wants a man who can ensure that she’ll always have the kind of life she wants.”
Another source says that Kim may be knocked up. “Kim is worried she could be pregnant!”
Even if Kim is expecting, “She wants to make sure that Kanye has money before she settles down with him,” says a source, and Kanye has worries of his own. “He’s no fool, another insider adds. “Like he says in his ‘Gold Digger’ song, ‘We want prenup! We want prenup!’”
“Kim really loves Kanye, but she loves money just as much, if not more,” one source says. “She’s hoping that in the end, she’ll get both.” Source
Jesus be a morning after pill and make this whole thing go away.
In Other Kanye News…
In Touch is reporting that Kanye was abusive to ex Alexis Phifer.
A source says, “[Kanye]‘s an abuser,”
One of their worst fights – the one that got physical – was over Kim. “It was at a Fourth of July party they had at their house,” the source shares. “Kanye was on his laptop, and Alexis came behind him and saw that he was looking at the screen of his phone – at a naked picture of Kim.”
When she asked him about the photo, he became angry and defensive. “He said he couldn’t control who sent him photos. But then he started getting dramatic – huffing and puffing and making a big deal.
“They went outside, and Kanye pushed Alexis into some bushes with ALL HIS FORCE. She was wearing a t-shirt and she got cuts and scratches EVERYWHERE and was bleeding. She was crying. But he just left her there. He got in his car and drove away.” Source
I don’t know if this is true. But it wouldn’t surprise me if it is. He’s always behaving like a big baby and not thinking about the consequences of his actions OR how others are affected by what he does. Barack said it best, “He’s an asshole.”
Kimmie’s stepdad, Bruce Jenner, isn’t all that excited about her relationship with Kanye.
A sources said that he’s concerned about Kim’s tendency to jump into serious relationships too quickly. Source
Word, she’s a serial monogamist for realz.
In Other Kim-ye News…
In Kanye’s new song ‘Theraflue’, he threatened Kim K’s soon-to-be ex husband, Kris Humphries, with getting kicked off the Nets by Ye’s bestie, stakeholder, Jay0Z. Well that pissed off Nets owner, Mikhail Prokhorov.
Mikhail said in a statement, “Kris has nothing to worry about. I support my players, and I’m on his side in this epic battle.”
Kanye has gotten in some other trouble over the song by the makers of the real Theraflu. He’s been forced to change the name of the single to ‘Way Too Cold.’ Source
Sounds like Yeezy needs to just be quiet for a while.
So Yeezy is gonna be on ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians.’ Via RadarOnline:
“Kanye is head over heels in love with Kim, and he has told her he would love to appear on the reality show if she wants him to. Kim is a bit leery of having her man appear on camera because of the whole fiasco with her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Kris Humphries, but watch for Kanye to make several appearances on the show towards the end of the season. Viewers won’t see him featured in the first part of the season, and it won’t be all about Kanye,” a show insider tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. Source
F**k yes! I only catch this show randomly on the weekends when there’s a marathon. But I will make SURE to watch next season when this crazy ass is on
Kanye West is being sued by singer Robert Poindexter, who claims that he used an uncleared sample of “Trying Girls Out” on his “Girls Grils Grils” 206 mixtape.
Robert says, “I have offered to resolve this matter out of court with Kanye West. But in response, he has refused to even discuss any ‘out-of-court’ resolutions whatsoever. Nor has he provided any evidence that he is demanding others to cease and desist from selling the illegal version.”
Robert says that West “willfully infringed the copyright for private and financial gain by selling and distributing an untold amount of physical and digital copies of the illegal version (mixed tapes/street albums) to the general public on internet downloads and through the mail.” Source
Kanye and Kim K. were seen looking extra friendly recently. Kim is in London and took the time to go go-karting with Yeezy…all whislst slathered in his new DW collection from head to toe.
Of their relationship, Kim’s sister Khloe said, “Well Kanye and Kim are friends. Kanye has been friends with Kim for a few years now. They at one point a few years ago (right after Reggie [Bush]), they were talking and trying to go on a date here and there but it just didn’t work out.
“I know they hung out but I know it’s never gotten to there. I know because they each respect each other and I think if they were ever to go there, I think it would be like a long relationship. I genuinely think that too because we have so much in common like our families, losing parents and we do have a lot of connections. I think that if they were to go there, it would be a long relationship. From what I’ve been told and even how they are around each other it’s not like that. Source
If they were to actually get together for real (I’m not talking about just making no-no), I’m pretty sure life as we know it would end. With that said, I’m kinda curious to see what would happen if two megalomaniacs got together. Thoughts?
Kanye has been staying in at the Lanesborough Hotel in London and hs apparently pissed off his neighbors which include the royal family.
Sources say that he’s taken over the top floor of the hotel, setting up fashion workshop rooms and music studios. Big Sean who’s been hanging out there says, “Kanye had rented out the top floor and we was banging that b*tch out. Every room was a studio. The Royal Family below were complaining like, ‘We got all this loud-ass rap music above us and weed smoke. They paid all this money and you don’t expect to get these kind of complaints.” Source
You don’t mess with the Royals. They’ll tar and feather you, draw and quarter you, hang you, cut your head off then set you on fire.
Kanye’s New Line Gets Bad Reviews
Kanye has cancelled a press preview of his new line because he felt the bad reviews he got were “unfair.”
Christina Binkley of the Wall Street Journal writes, “Overall, given the extremely low expectations, I’d say he pulled it off. But with a lot of help. The rumors that he has been hiring consultants right and left seem likely accurate.”
Luke Leitch of Britain’s The Daily Telegraph, writes, “‘Rap with a capital C’ was how we headlined Kanye West’s execrably executed first incursion into Paris Pret-a-Porter last September… Tonight West came back for more – and good on him. He may be utterly unqualified to show as a designer in Paris, but he certainly has chutzpah. And the collection? Well, it was no hit – but neither was (it) hit with a capital S.”
The New York Times’ Eric Wilson adds, “Harder, faster, stronger, maybe just a little bit better. After a debut collection that was a critical flop last fall, Kanye West resumed his fashion career in Paris on Tuesday night, picking up right where he left off, with a spectacle of slinky dresses, leather pants that didn’t quite fit, furry peplums, broadtail stretch pants, some souped-up go-karts and Kim Kardashian. Well, at least that was an improvement.”
The New York Times’ fashion blog quotes him as saying, “I don’t know about this. I got treated unfairly by the press last time. Why would I want to do this?” and when asked whether he would like to explain his designs to editors, he replied, “No. If they don’t understand it, they don’t understand it.” Source
Well one of his reps spoke out to deny the reports. He said, “Mr. West takes pride in creating an exceptional work environment… I can assure you that it is a complete fabrication and all of Mr. West’s drivers are happily employed.” Source
Recently while in London, Kanye sent his driver out for lunch. The driver took two hours and upon his return was terminated.
A source tells the Sunday Mirror, “The driver left at 1pm and didn’t make it back until 3pm, when the head of security told him: ‘I’m sorry but I’m going to have to let you go. You took too long and Kanye got p**sed off. He was really hungry’.”
The driver says it’s not his fault (there was traffic, yadda, yadda) and is considering an unfair dismissal lawsuit against Kanye. Source
Really dude? 2 hours? Did he even call? If my boss ever asked me to get her lunch (which she never would because 1. She’s not that kinda person and 2. Neither am I) and I took two hours to get it I would expect to get fired. Cus trust and believe, anyone who made me wait two hours for food would not only get fired but would die a horrible death.
Amber Rose was on MTV’s RapFix Live on Wednesday and broke down while talking to Sway after he asked her about how Wiz deals with questions about Kanye.
She said, “I have people throwing things at me in the street because they’re fans of Kanye. I’m just crying because I don’t deserve to be bullied like that. I’m a nice girl, I don’t bother anybody. I keep my mouth shut because I don’t want any trouble.”
Kanye West, who was once known for his crazy as cap ridden tweets, hopped on Twitter last night and sounded more lucid than he’s ever sounded before. He wrote of he dreams, aspirations and future plans. Peep some tweets below (there were over 80 so we’re going to abridge that fer ya).
He wants to revamp the world through a new creative company that heightens our musical, visual, and all our senses. He’s named it Donda, after his late mother who was an English professor.
I am assembling a team of architects, graphic designers, directors musicians, producers, AnRs, writers, publicist, social media experts, app guys, managers, car designers, clothing designers, DJs, video game designers, publishers, tech guys, lawyers, bankers, nutritionists, doctors, scientist,teachers…
DONDA will be comprised of over 22 divisions with a goal to make products and experiences that people want and can afford
I want to put creatives in a room together with like minds that are all waaaay doper than me. We want to help simplify and aesthetically improve everything we see hear, touch, taste and feel.
To dream of, create, advertise and produce products driven equally by emotional want and utilitarian need.. To marry our wants and needs.
He also has several projects on the horizon:
-A new summer school with director Spike Jonze that prepares children for the real world and has majors starting in grammar school (and allows iPhones to be used for search engines)
-A new 7 screen visual experience (he says the WTT concert was a small example), a semi-sci fi project called 2016 OLYMPICS, and he wants to design the MTV Awards.
He ended his pleasant rant with:
“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.” – George Bernard Shaw Source
Amber Rose just spoke out saying that when she was with Kanye, he cheated on her with Kim Kardashian.
She told Star, “They were both cheating! They were both cheating on me and Reggie with each other. She was sending pictures, and I was like, ‘Kim, just stop. Don’t be that person. I thought at least she’d be woman enough to respond to me. She never responded.
“It’s very important that us women stick together and we don’t f**k each other over like that.”
She added, “I want to thank her because if she was never a homewrecker, then I never would have met Wiz, and I wouldn’t be as happy as I am now.” Source
During the Philly stop of Kanye and Jay’s ‘Watch the Throne’ tour, Yeezy felt the need to show his love for Amber and apologize for being an asshole to her.
He said on stage, “I know love ain’t always easy. Especially when people in your business like they are with me all the time. Y’all gone fight, y’all gone argue. It’s gon’ be people hating on y’all.
“To the city of Philly, I want to thank y’all for making the incredible person that this song was made for…”
He then continued freestyle with the lyrics:
“And you’ll always be fine but the one thing I f*cked up the most was that I thought you’d always be mine. I thought you’d always be mine. I thought you’d always be mine…
“If you love someone tonight. Hold them real tight…”
Amber responded saying, “I’ll say this—I didn’t even know about it. This is my 50th interview today and every single person has asked me, and it made me go see what the hell they were talking about, because I don’t keep up on the current events of Kanye. I just don’t look him up.
“Kanye called me an incredible person, and I take that as an apology. And if it was an apology, I forgive him for being an asshole. I don’t hate him.
“A lot of it is just negativity and I don’t like to bring that energy into my life. But I did look at it and he said that, he said um, ‘When I said that I didn’t like your dress, I was an asshole. When I said that I didn’t like your hair, I was an asshole.’
“And he was an asshole. He was. I feel like he gets that now, and he’s remorseful about being an asshole to me.
“But he called me an incredible person, and I take that as an apology. And if it was an apology, I forgive him for being an asshole. I don’t hold any grudges. I don’t hate him. I want him to find a girl and for him to treat her better than he treated me.
“The next girl, she doesn’t deserve that. I found pure happiness with Wiz. Why wouldn’t I want that for Kanye? I want everyone to have that, to feel the way I feel about Wiz. Source and Source
I love tht Amber isn’t afraid to speak out these days. Looks like she may have been one of the many to get away. Kanye has had a history of decent chicks in his life (and by decent I mean chicks that really loved him) and he always seems to realize it too late.
Kanye west sparked rumors that the Black Eyed Peas called it quits. He was performing at the Austin City Limits Music Festival when, upon wrapping his performance of “All of the Lights,” he said “Rest in peace to the Black Eyed Peas. You’re gonna be missed” during Fergie’s verse.
Both Fergie and will.i.am have said in the recent past that the group will be taking a break. But will took to Twitter to deny a break up saying “@bep will never die.”
“maybe @kanyewest was stating the fact we will take a rest for a little bit…but we the @bep will never die…never…impossible,” he wrote.
Kanye is super excited about the baby. He’s hoping that Jay and Bey will even name him godfather.
A source said,“Kanye is as excited about the baby as Beyonce and Jay-Z.
“He’s been saying he’s going to be godfather and is absolutely thrilled. It will be a huge honor for him.” Source
There’s no way in holy hell that I would let him have anything to do with the upbringing of my kids. I have some off/unstable/down-right-lunatic friends and although I love them dearly, they may not even be invited to my kids’ birthday parties.
Kanye West was booed this weekend at the Big Chill festival after he compared himself to Hitler.
He told the crowd: “This is my most important gig of the summer – but I’m really frustrated. I only have half of my voice. I just want things to be right. This is the reason we started half an hour late.
“There is so much bull***t going on in the music industry right now. Someone needs to make a difference. People treat me like Hitler.”
He was booed but was able to turn things around by actually playing some music. Source
He’s such a little b!tch. Stop your complainin and perform. No one paid to sit back and listen to you whine.
In Other Yeezy News…
One of the women that Kanye has was linked to this Spring, Angela Martini, former Miss Universe, was cut off and started running her mouth.
Page Six reports:
Angela Martini, who was linked to West in the spring, was barred from his “Watch the Throne” album launch after-party at the Darby the other night. Sources say Martini cozied up to one of West’s producers so she could attend his earlier listening party at the Hayden Planetarium, but West nixed her from the after-party. Last month, the brunette, represented by Elite Model Management, rushed over to Greenhouse after Rihanna’s concert when she heard West was partying there, but sources say West didn’t want to see her. Another source said, “She eats at his favorite restaurant, Niko, near his SoHo apartment just to bump into him. She says they’re in love.” Martini declined to comment. Source
I couldn’t get into the site, cus I’m not a member.But I wonder if you can give tracks a thumbs
down as well.Some songs NEED a thumbs
down.Anywho, this could either be an
interesting way to have fans rate your music…or just another way to waste time
A bunch of independent music stores are pissed that Jay-Z and Kanye plan to release their album, ‘Watch the Throne,’ on iTunes a full two weeks before it’s available in stores.
So they wrote an open letter to the two rappers and it went a little something like this:
“We know that you are busy, and that you put most of your energies into creating great music, but we are writing to you in the hope that you will hear us and take the time to rectify this matter.
“As representatives of the independent record store music community, we are asking you to allow record stores and music fans equal access to your new album.”
Some of them have even threatened to pull the artists’ current and past albums from their shelves. Source
I don’t blame them for being pissed. It’s bad enough that people usually get most of their music digitally anyway. But this is pretty much not even giving them a fighting chance to make some money.
Kanye West was recently at a Japanese restaurant in Soho the other night. Apparently he’s not a fan of martini glasses. Page Six reports:
Kanye West may not be afraid to be fashion forward — but he will not be seen sipping from a girlie martini glass. The superstar rapper was spotted dining with a male friend at SoHo Japanese restaurant Niko on Saturday night. A spy said, “Kanye walked in at 9:30 and ordered a fruity drink that came in a martini glass. Within seconds of receiving his drink, he called over the waiter to change up his glass.” One table over were bag designers Mona Leah and Tara Bliss, who tweeted at West: “What was up with those martini glasses . . . good call sending it back.” Source
Kanye’s said in the past that he doesn’t sip drinks…he gulps them. You can’t really gulp out of a martini glass. *Blinks
Kanye held a showcase for his G.O.O.D. artists in Brooklyn the other night. Everyone was excited because there were rumors that Jay-Z would make an appearance. Well Jay did show. But after waiting hours in a car outside Skyline One Hance in BK for Kanye, he grew impatient and left. Source
Hell, I woulda left too. Humph!
In Other Kanye News…
Word on the street is that Kanye is dating Mary-Kate Olsen. According to reports she was in attendance at NYC’s Mercer Hotel where Kanye was celebrating his birthday last week. Page six says that Kanye invited her when they met at the Annual Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards. Well sources say that the two were spotted kissing at the party.
Kanye West is in Paris working on a new clothing line. He’s developing a high-end collection for men and women from a studio in the middle of Paris.
Kanye tried to launch a line called Pastelle a few years ago. But had to stop production after his VMA outburst. Source
I don’t always agree with the stuff that Kanye likes to get dolled up in. But I will say that he’s ‘different.’ And folks seem to like ‘different.’ So good luck Yeezy. I’m sure that your stuff will fly off the racks.
Kanye collaborated with M/M (Paris) to release a line of silk scarves that are inspired by the album artwork from ‘Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.’
Since some of the artwork was banned from certain stores, he decided to print them on the scarves.
There are five styles fo the limited-edition scarves and only 100 pieces each will be mad. They’re selling for $365 exclusively through French boutique Colette, Chicago’s RSVP Gallery, and online at MMParis.com. Source
Kanye West wasn’t invited to the Louis Vuitton show during Paris Fashion Week and he wasn’t too happy about it. He showed up uninvited and was turned away. He tried to get into the Balmain runway show but was denied entry there as well.
A source said he then snuck off to “a separate part of the hotel, so people didn’t see him” after he was rejected. Source
News outlets have been reporting that MTV banned Kanye West’s ‘Monster’ video. But MTV has spoken out to refute the claims.
They say, “MTV has not banned Kanye West’s “Monster” video. We have been in constant communication with the label regarding this matter. However, we are still awaiting the edits we requested in order for the video to be suitable for broadcast.” Source
From the clips that I saw the video can definitely be considered risqué. In the past MTV has stood by certain artists and chosen to only air videos of this sort later at night. We’ll see what happens when the official vid is actually premiered.
Kanye West plans to expand his talents with a degree in design. He is set to apply at Central Saint Martins College to receive a masters in fashion.
He met with Professor Louise Wilson, who previously taught Alexander McQueen.
A source says, “The rapper already has work experience with Fendi and Louis Vuitton on his CV. Now that he has been interviewed, the school’s board will have to decide whether to allow him to start the MA fashion course later this year.” Source
Kanye West is set to make his film debut in ‘The Black Mamba’ alongside Bruce Willis. The film is part of a campaign for Kobe Bryan’s new line of sneakers, the Nike Air Kobe Zoom Vis. Kobe will be in the film as well and Nike is producing it. In the director’s chare is Robert Rodriguez.
You can see the film online starting February 19. Source
I’ll watch it for curiosity’s sake but I’m not confident it’ll be worth my time.
The Southern California music festival, Coachella, is coming up this April and we’ve already got the big names that will be there.

Kanye West wants to get in the studio with Justin Bieber. He has plans to produce the Bieb’s new album.
Scooter Braun, Justin’s manager, said, “Justin and Kanye had a call, about a song they’re trying to work on together. Kanye wants to produce a bunch of new songs for his new album.” Source
Eh, I can do without.
In Other Kanye News…
Kanye is being sued by Michael Vazquez, a photographer that was at an event that Kanye played bac in 2008. He claimes to have been “assaulted, battered, beat and threatened” buy Kanye and his security team.
Michael is claiming unspecified damages for “physical, mental and emotional illness” as a result of the incident at the show, which Kanye was paid $1 million for and was best remembered for a performance by topless, helmet-wearing dancers.
The suit states: “West, his agents, servants and/or employees acting in the course and within the scope of their employment, detained and/or threatened and/or caused plaintiff to suffer injuries.
“The assault and battery was committed by defendant, Kanye West, [his] agents, servants and/or employees, with malice.” Source
Nicki Minaj says that Kanye West is her new mentor. She was discovered and mentored by Lil Wayne but when he got locked up it was hard for him to oversee her career. So Nicki started working with Kanye and the two have formed a strong relationship. She now looks to him for advice.
She said, “When it came to me putting my album out, I was like, ‘I can’t have an album without Kanye. He has to be a part of it.’
“He’s become my mentor, he gives me advice, he hits me (with contacts), takes random pictures offline and says, ‘Oh this is a good picture of you.’ He’s really into fashion so he’s a good person to have a well-rounded conversation with.” Source
This is a matach made in psychotherapy heaven. Both these fools are out of their mind. I secretly love it.
Kanye has been named MTV’s Man of The Year. They say he was chosen because his comeback was a “compelling story.” He started the year as a villain for what he did to Taylor Swift but ended it with the triumphant release of his album, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.” Source
This is a weird choice if you ask me. But I don’t really care when I think about it.
Kanye is a business man like his buddy Jay. He just bout 10 Fatburger restaurant chains in Chicago though his holdings company, KW Foods LLC.
His manager, Gee Roberson, said, “Music is the foundation for everything Kanye does, but he doesn’t want to be defined only as a musician. He’s really a designer. He designs his sounds, his raps, all aspects of his tour. He wants to do deals where he can have his fingerprints on the product.”
That’s not all he’s got in store. He’s inked a fragrance deal with Parlux, a company that has previously worked with Rihanna. Source
I can just see him walking intp Burger Kings all over Chi-town interrupting people’s meals talking bout, “Excuse me chubby, I’mma let you finish, but Fatburger had the best ¼ pounder this year.”
When Kanye got grilled on the Today Show he offhandedly blamed his handlers via Twitter.
But word is that it wasn’t their fault. In fact the PR firm he hired to help him handle the interview actually advised him not to do it. They didn’t’ hear until the morning of that he was already at Rockafeller Center so they rushed down to go over possible questions and answers. It didn’t really help, OBVI, so they quit as soon as the interview was over. Source
In case you missed it, the above video is Kanye’s appearance on the Today Show, the appaearance that he was all up in arms about on Twitter. Well after it aired he went back to Twitter to talk some more shit. He also cancelled the performance he was supposed to do on the show. Peep the tweets below:
One, I didn’t think the interview was that bad. I think he’s just socially retarded and doesn’t know how to interact with normal human beings. Ever notice that the few times that he is allowed to speak, something crazy comes out? I couldn’t even get through the whole interview because it was painful to sit and watch him stammer and stumble through simple questions.
Two, canceling a performance because you like to be coddled and that didn’t happen, is imimature and unprofessional. I love your crazy ass, but really my dude? Really? Wack. Lock it up.
Matt Lauer done gone and made Kanye mad. Our fave nut, took to twitter about his taped interview with Matt. He apparently went on the show to talk about his Bush comments and to explain that he empathizes with him. But he felt like his answers were forced and now wants to stay away from the press.
Peep the tweets:
……Let me tell you how they did me at the Today show…
I went up there to express how I was empathetic to Bush because I labeled him a racist and years later I got labeled as a racist…. While I was trying to give the interview they started playing the “MTV” under me with audio!!!!!!! I don’t mess with Matt Lauer or the Today Show and that’s a very nice way for me to put it! HE TRIED TO FORCE MY ANSWERS. IT WAS VERY BRUTAL AND I CAME THERE WITH ONLY POSITIVE INTENT.
I feel very alone very used very tortured very forced very misunderstood very hollow very very misused. I don’t trust anyone but myself! Everyone has an agenda. I don’t do press anymore. I can’t be everything to everybody anymore. I can’t be everybody’s hero and villain savior and sinner Christian and anti Christ!
I can’t take anymore advice!!! I create, I’m creative, I have a good heart, everyone will see and understand one day. Everything sounds like noise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYTHING SOUNDS LIKE NOISE!!!!!!! I don’t trust anyone! Very judged very scrutinized very criticized! I want everyone to know I have lows all the time but I make it through them! Yo I really wonder if Matt Lauer thought that shit was cool to play the “MTV” clip while I was speaking about Bush? He played clips of Bush and asked me to look at his face while I was trying to talk to him. I wish Michael Jackson had twitter!!!!!! Maybe Mike could have explained how the media tried to set him up!!! It’s all a f*cking set up!!!! . This is rock and roll life my people… you can’t stop the truth you can’t stop the music and I have to be strong or “they” win!!!! . Sometimes it’s not simple, some days it’s not easy… I just want to create.
Kanye decided to do an impromptu performance thousans of feet in the air. A passenger said that he got on the intercom and started rapping adding, “He was like, ‘Yo, this your n****, Kanye. Then he couldn’t decide if he wanted to do ‘Good Life’ or ‘Gold Digger,’ so he was like, ‘I’ll just do a little bit of both.’ It was awesome… but I still have no idea how he got into the cockpit.” Source
OK, so let me get this straight…I get land basted if I happen to have a pair of tweezers in my purse at the airport, but this wreckless Negro is hanging out in the cockpit of a plane. Only in America.
I love Kanye more and more every day. In a recent interview he said that Taylor Swift is famous because of him. Peep the quote below:
“I feel like when Taylor was getting all those magazine covers, she was all good then. I feel completely empathetic and sympathize with that moment of her feeling bad, that spawned her to have one million magazine covers and be the most popular artist in the world, but in that moment of her feeling bad, I do feel bad about being the cause of that.” Source
Sad thing is, as much as most of us would have to admit it…(whispers) he’s right.
Kanye visited the Funkmaster Flex show on Hot 97 and addressed everything from his cover art to his peen all over the net.
On His Album Art Being Banned:
“It was disappointing to me because… I was chilling with my ex-fiance about three months ago—Alexis, because we’re still good friends—and she was like, ‘You’re very ‘70s right now, just your whole vibe, when the artistry was on that level’… It’s a level of purity that I feel like has been tainted. For my kids, if it’s proper art I would definitely allow them to see that. I was in fourth grade painting nude women.”
On Amber Rose and “Runaway”
“She definitely was an inspiration for me… You have to realize in my situation with the ups and downs that I’ve been through, the losses, the ups, just everything, sometimes you make decisions like, ‘I’ma just do this one right here. I’m try this one.’ It’s proper rock star sh*t! Sometimes people get married in a week.”
On His Junk Hitting The Net
“Have you heard the first line of ‘Runaway’? [I sent this girl a picture of my d*ck] I only rap reality. I went to the Internet… They had the link, I went to it… Man, you cannot imagine how disappointed I was that I got cut off.”
On Being Misunderstood
“The media is scared, they scared of me. They scared of a Black man with this taste level but this connection with Pusha, Jeezy, Ross… So what they do in order to take that power away, they try to turn me into a demon and it’s happened so many times throughout history. They knocked the nose off the Sphinx. They tried to tell you aliens built the pyramids… People need to understand, I’m not above the people—I’m of the people. I love the people.”
Former president George Bush talked about Kanye’s infamous comment about him in a recent interview with Matt Lauer. He said the “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” hurt him.
He said, “I didn’t appreciate it then. I don’t appreciate it now. … I resent it, it’s not true, and it was one of the most disgusting moments in my presidency.”
Lauer replied, “You’re not saying that the worst moment in your presidency was watching the misery in Louisiana. You’re saying it was when someone insulted you because of that.”
Bush clarified, “I also make it clear that the misery in Louisiana affected me deeply as well,” said Bush. “There’s a lot of tough moments in the book. And it was a disgusting moment, pure and simple.”Source
We heard a few weeks ago that Kanye West had taken some flicks of his peen and sent them out to a bunch of chicks. Well Mediatakeout.com got their hands on said flicks and published them. You can see them here.
Here’s the full 35 minute video/movie for Kanye West’s “Runaway.” I watched about 25 seconds of this before turning away and letting that ish play in the background. After popping back in a few times I’ve deduced that 1. No one ever makes videos that have anything to do with anything anymore. 2. Selita Ebanks makes feathers look extra hot. 3. That doesn’t mean she can act. 4. As hard as you look you’ll never find a reason for this nonsense. 5. ZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Kanye Take Two…
Kanye West’s mini movie, “Runaway,” just premiered and in the video a man leans over to Kanye and says, “Your girlfriend is beautiful. Do you know she’s a bird?”
Right after the premiere, Kanye’s ex, Amber Rose, felt the need to send out a series of tweets defending herself.
Girl, nobody was talkin’ about you. Actually, knowing in Kanye, he probably WAS talking about you. But you make yourself look silly by acknowledging that. Just look at it as being important enough to him still that he felt the need to talk about you in his video.
Kanye Take Three…
In Kanye’s song ‘Runaway’ he talks about selling his soul to the devil and he recently spoke out to renouce the devil.
He said, “There’s this line where I say, ‘I sold my soul to the devil, that’s a c***py deal,’ and all these people said, ‘What you mean you sold your soul to the devil?’ But when I say it, I’m saying, when I allow other people’s ideals to interfere with what I know is true to myself, that’s the devil.
“So, it’s like, people talking mess on the blogs is the devil or trying to call me names – that’s what the devil is. And me thinking twice about what it is that’s really in my heart because of what people’s reaction would be is me selling my soul to the devil.
“You’re on earth for only 80, 90 a hundred years. I have to create from my dreams, from the dreams I had as a five-year-old, and use everything – all the greatest people and all the tools I have around me – and ask as many questions as I can to help facilitate and bring this out.”Source
So do you think he’s just trying to distance himself from the Illuminati rumors or is he being genuine?
The other day we reported that the cover art for Kanye’s next album had been banned. He had tweeted, “Banned in the USA!!! They don’t want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix!” then he linked the image. Well he wasn’t actually banned. He was strongly urged by his label to use something else. But was also told that he “wanted to do it, the label would stand behind him.” Source
I don’t think he was lying or exaggerating. When someone ‘strongly urges’ you to do something you better damn well do it. Considereing it banned was a good idea. That’s like your boss ‘strongly urging’ you to come into work a little earlier. You should consider yourself on probation and should consider looking for a back up job.
Kanye West has just released the album cover for his next album, ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and it’s already been banned in the US.
He tweeted: “Banned in the USA!!! They tried to play me fam! They don’t want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix!”
His label has decded to axe the cover art because no one wants to or will be able to carry the album with that cover.
Kanye added, “In all honesty… I really don’t be thinking about Wal-Mart when I make my music or album covers #Kanyeshrug!. I wanna sell albums but not at the expense of my true creativity.
“Last day to wrap the album… I’m feeling so blessed on this day… finishing my 5th studio album in 6 years! Lining up piano sample replays,” Kanye wrote. “Adding the voice samples from the VMA performance to the album version of ‘Runaway’ also the whole song is 8 minutes long.”
