Brody Jenner, Kim Kardashian’s step-brother, skipped her wedding to Kanye West and went to her ex, Reggie Bush’s wedding to Lilit Avagyan.
And according to RadarOnline, he thinks that Reggie is better off with Lilit than Kim.
A source said, “Of course it’s a huge diss to Kim that her step-brother went to her ex-boyfriend’s wedding, and not hers! But Brody has been friends with Reggie for years, and wouldn’t have missed his wedding. It’s no secret that Brody and Kim aren’t close.”
The source said that during the reception, Brody was overheard saying “that he had never seen Reggie happier, and thought his new wife Lilit was the perfect match for him. There was of course no mention of Kim during the festivities, but Brody believes Reggie dodged a huge bullet by not marrying her!” Source
Since getting married just 46 days ago, Kim and Kanye have only spend 9 nights together. And when they ARE together, they’re miserable.
A source said, “Kim complained and sulked the entire time they were in Ireland on their honeymoon,” an insider revealed. “She didn’t like the cooler damp climate, and the lack of high-end designer stores. Kanye tried to arrange tours of local museums, but she wanted nothing to do with it. Only Kim would go to Ireland and be bored, and go to two separate movies in the same day in a foreign country!”
They recently tried to re-do their honeymoon at Kim’s friend Joe Francis’ estate in Puta Mita, Mexico, but they weren’t happy there either.
A source said, “Kanye was miserable and brooding. He isn’t really the ‘lounge by the pool kind of guy.’
“Kanye now recognizes that Kim’s main interest are shopping and lounging around a pool. It’s really concerning to Kanye that Kim doesn’t even want to try to experience new things.” Source
They can get divorced…but unlike Kim’s other relationships, she’s going to have to deal with Kanye for another 17 years. Hi Nori!
Kanye has been donning masks for his Yeezus shows and he explained that it wasn’t purly for asthetics.
He said, “You know damn well no black guys or celebrities making Louis Vuitton nothing. They let Pharrell make those [Louis Vuitton] glasses, and we liked ’em, right? They let me make those [Louis Vuitton] shoes and we liked ’em, right? They said, ‘No, no, no n-gga. Not no more. That’s too much. Stay in your place. Stand in front of that show and wear this jacket I made you. Stay in your place! Do what you’re paid to do! Don’t embarrass yourself trying to chase your dreams. Save face.’
“That’s why I got this f-cking mask on. Cause I ain’t worried about saving face. F-ck my face! That sounded wrong. Pause. They finally got a headline. But f-ck whatever my face is supposed to mean and f-ck whatever the name Kanye is supposed to mean, it’s about my dreams! It’s about anybody’s dreams. It’s about creating. It’s not about the idea about being a f-cking celebrity, it’s not about the idea of being a black man trying to do fashion and sh-t. Source
I really don’t get the severity of his frustration and anger. I feel like it runs way deeper than just being mad at the industry or the media. Thoughts?
Kim and Kanye Skipped Out on Their Honeymoon Bill?
Sources say that Kim and Kanye refused to pay a $20K bill for their Irish honeymoon stay. The couple complained that the castle they were staying in was ‘too big’ and they didn’t have cell phone reception. So they stayed at the Ballyfin House instead.
The hotel says that they tried to satisfy the couple’s demands. But they reversed the deposit on their Amex leaving the hotel in the red for thousands.
A source said, “Everyone is shocked to say the least. The castle is out a fortune on their honeymoon. It is absolutely awful.
“They made all these requests ahead of their visit, for certain foods, champagnes, thousands in flowers, candelabras everywhere. The hotel brought in everything they requested, and there were dozens of items. But then they took back all the money they had paid for them!”
Now, “everyone involved in making their honeymoon perfect at Castle Oliver has been completely burned,” said the source. “We’re not just talking about the hotel, but providers from all around the local area who gave their services and time in good faith that Kim and Kanye would pay them. But they won’t get their money back.” Source
Sources are claiming that Beyonce and Jay-Z have cut ties with Kim and Kanye.
A source said, “When the rappers were on tour, Beyonce was forced to sit with Kim at shows and hang with her after, and she put up with it through gritted teeth.
“Bey and Jay feel like they’ve been dragged through the mud with all the drama surrounding their absence at the Kimye wedding. Jay made it clear to Kanye that he doesn’t approve of the choices he’s making in his personal life and it will end in disaster for his career.” Source
Kanye is a disaster and Bey never wanted to be Kim’s friend to begin with, so I can totes see them distancing themselves.
Bey Builds $7M Housing Complex for Houston’s Homeless
Kim and Kanye have been renovating an $11M home while living with her mom waiting for completion. Well according to Us Weekly, the couple have put the mansion on the market claiming Kim is sick of waiting for the renovations to be complete. Source
They’ve already put so much money and time into it. Why not just wait?
Rihanna was recently spotted entering the studio with Kanye West. The two were seen at a West Hollywood studio Wednesday night. The last time they worked together was on 2010’s All of the Lights. Source
I didn’t know she was working on new music. But she’s got like 50 albums so I guess this shouldn’t surprise me.
Rumor has it that Kim has a hording habit that’s causing issues with her new husband. She’s running out of space for her clothes and beauty products and it’s pissing Kanye off. He wants her to get rid of a bunch of stuff before they move into their new house.
A source said, “Kim rents two storage lockers and had two rooms in her old house reserved for piles of clothes and shoes she never wears.
“So she had their contractor build in an even larger hangar-like space in their new house for all of her stuff. Kim also keeps years of backdated magazine and newspaper clippings that she’s been mentioned in. Kanye doesn’t mind that Kim is so self-involved; he just wishes she was more organized about it. He told her to scan it onto a hard drive and to toss the paper trail.
“They had their first major post-wedding fight after Kanye threw out boxes of Kim’s hoarded items because Kanye says Kim’s crap is wrecking his design aesthetic.”
Kim, “hates how Kanye keeps things so sterile, like a museum.”
“They don’t see eye to eye on this topic. Kim was furious after Kanye told her she should go on a show like ‘Hoarders.’ He warned Kim that he can’t live with her if she continues to stockpile useless goods.” Source
I could actually see this. Kim has said before that she has an issue with having too many beauty products. And we all know how anal Kanye is. #thisisdumb #firstworldproblems
Kanye West was ordered to perform community service after a violent run in with a pap. But he won’t be serving it picking up trash. Instead he’s been teaching at the L.A. Trade Technical College.
He’s visited the school three times in the last 6 weeks and is teaching students about the fashion business. Source
I want to commit a crime just so I can get awesome community service like this. I want to be mad. But we all know there was NO WAY he’d be donning an orange vest and picking up trash on the side of the road.
Kanye claims that photographer, Annie Leobovitz almost ruined his honeymoon with Kim Kardashian because they had to spend 4 days photoshopping one of their Instagram pictures due to her ‘negligence.’
The above photo had to be altered because the flowers were “off color.” He says that Anne pulled out of covering his wedding in Italy the day before it took place because she was “afraid of celebrity.”
Kanye said, “I’ll tell you a little story about the Kiss photo that my girl put up.
“We – and this was p***ing my girl off during the honeymoon. She was exhausted because we worked on the photo so much because Annie Leibovitz pulled out of the wedding, because I think she was scared of the idea of celebrity. But because Annie pulled out, I was like ‘I still want my wedding photos to look like Annie Leibovitz’s photos’ and we sat there and worked on that photo for four days – because the flowers were off-colour and stuff like that.
“Can you imagine telling someone who wants to just Instagram a photo, who’s the number one person on Instagram, ‘We need to work on the color of the flower wall.” Source
I mean, you don’t think that they worked on the pics personally, do you? I’m sure they were luxuriating while a dungeon full of goons worked on the pics. #IJS
Kanye must be feeling some kind of way about Jay-Z skipping his wedding. Because during his performance at the X Music festival in Austin, TX, several concertgoers noticed that Kanye deleted “Jay-Z” from every lyric that mentioned his name.
During “Cold” he removed Jay-Z’s name from the lyric “Lucky I ain’t had (JAY) drop him from the team.” Later, during the song “Blood on the Leaves”, Kanye said “I don’t give a damn if you used to talk to (JAY) he ain’t with you, he with Beyoncé” and instead of saying “You need to stop acting lazy” he shouted “You need to stop acting crazy!” The first verse of “Touch the Sky” ends with a quote from Jay-Z, but he scrapped the end of the verse altogether.

Kim was supposed to be appearing on Kourtney & Khloe Take the Hamptons, filming this summer, but “There’s no way Kanye was going to allow Kim do it. It’s no secret how much Kanye dislikes and despises Kim’s involvement with reality television, and there was no way it was going to happen so soon after the wedding.”
The source adds that Kim’s momager, Kris, “is furious because she is feeling the pressure from E! and Ryan Seacrest Productions to have Kim on the show instead of her other daughter, Kourtney. The network is afraid that Kourtney & Khloé Take The Hamptons will be a ratings disaster because Kim isn’t going to be a regular on the series.”
Kris is also trying to get Kim to keep her last name. “There is no way Kris would ever give her blessing for the main cash cow of the Kardashian empire, to not continue to use that name professionally,” insisting that she plans to “fight it tooth and nail.”
“In fact, if Kris thought she could get Kanye to change his last name to Kardashian, she absolutely would!” Source
I’m so over all of them. Except for Nori…that’s my boo. I could look at that lil face all the live long day.
Kim and Kanye married yesterday in a private ceremony in front of family and friends in Florence, Italy.
Rich Wilkerson Jr., a pastor from North Miami, performed the ceremony. And the event was planned by Sharon Sacks who is a Kardashian family friend and planned North’s baby shower and Kim’s wedding to Kris Humphries. Source
I’mma just say congrats and wish them the best…they’ll need all the luck in the world to make it in Hollyweird.
Kim’s brother, Rob Kardashian, reportedly left the wedding before it even happened. Some sources say that it was due to some “major family drama.” Other’s say that he left because he had a meltdown about appearing in family pictures. We all know Rob has been having some weight issues over the past year or so that he’s particularly sensitive about.
I know Rob is sensitive about his weight…I mean who wouldn’t be? I’m sensitive about my weight but at least I’m not in the public eye. I don’t think he’d leave over something as trivial as pictures thought. HE knows he’s fat. He knew there would be pictures taken. So if that was an issue he wouldn’t have shown up to begin with. I’m sure his mama or his sisters said something to him that set him off. Poor Robbie-Poo. Now grow up and get over it buddy. No one, not even Argentina, is going to cry for you.
I’m sure their honeymoon yacht present was received well. However, nothing makes up for your attendance at a friend’s wedding. So what Bey and Kim aren’t besties, Jay and Ye are. And so what there were gonna be cameras there. Just tough it out and show the hell up. I would be PISSED if my friends missed my wedding to stay home and eat some ribs. King Bey ain’t got time for that
RadarOnline.com is reporting that Beyonce and Jay-Z will indeed be in attendance at Kim and Kanye’s wedding. In fact, Jay will be Kanye’s best man.
A source said, “The best news came when Jay sent a gift to Kanye with an inscription referring to Jay Z as the rapper’s ‘Best Man.’ The gift was a gold-plated, diamond-encrusted flask, delivered with a $10,000 bottle of scotch, for Kanye to have for his wedding day.
“Kanye was almost jumping up and down, he was so excited. He was running around Kris‘ house to find Kim saying, ‘Baby, look! Look! Jay and B are coming!’ Kanye has been begging Jay to reconsider his decision not to come to the wedding, an even more devastating decision that left Kanye groomsman-less when he declined being his best man during the televised nuptials.”
The couple has scaled back the filming of their nuptials because their A-List friends have an issue with being a part of the show.
“They used the loophole in Nori’s contract that they can say no to any life moment she is a part of being filmed, so it would not be in breach of contract,” the source revealed.
“E! understood in the end, because Kanye has been a trooper since joining the Kardashian clan. They are afraid of pissing him off! They will now film before and after the ceremony but not during.”
Beyonce and Jay have refused to participate in the filming.
“Both Jay and Beyonce are refusing to participate in any filming, so E! will get to air some wedding photos, but none with them in it,” the insider told Radar.
“E! wants to shoot the rehearsal dinner, but Jay is putting his foot down. So the drama continues. Instead, Kim and Kanye are now in talks with Vogue to publish some wedding photos, after their cover did so well.”
“Jay and Bey don’t mind that at all, as there will be a write-up with it, and they can promote their dual tour.” Source
I reported yesterday that Solange had deleted all but one picture of her and her sister Beyonce from her Instagram account. That wasn’t true. Solange never had a bunch of pics of Bey on her page so there’s that.
In an interesting turn, this morning, Beyonce posted four consecutive pictures of herself with her sister looking very lovey dovey.
I’m not sure what her posting these pics is supposed to mean. I mean, it could be that she’s just trying to show some type of solidarity. It could be her reaching out to her sis to let her know she still loves and cares about her. Or it could be her picking sides. I don’t think it’s the last assumption because she’s already shown that she isn’t going to do so. So what do you think this means?
Sources say that the fight video showing Solange Knowles viciously attacking her brother-in-law Jay Z inside an elevator at the Standard Hotel following the Met Gala was sold to the highest bidder for $250k.
A source said, “This was being shopped for five days to the highest bidder.”
The Standard has hired Hollywood lawyer Marty Singer, who is investigating who shopped the tape.
Another source said, “There are only a handful of people who’d have access to that tape. The Standard owns that tape.” But, “Once it was out, Jay Z’s people felt they couldn’t control it. They were reluctant to try and publicly fight this.”
The Standard Hotel released the following statement regarding the security breach. A source said, “This was being shopped for five days to the highest bidder.”

“We are shocked and disappointed that there was a clear breach of our security system and the confidentiality that we count on providing our guests. We are investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation and, as is our customary practice, will discipline and prosecute the individuals involved to our fullest capacity.” Source
$250K?! That’s IT?! Puh-leeeeze. They coulda got millions if they would have just dangled the video in front of Beyonce’s nose. I’m just saying.
Kim and Kanye are officially married according to Life & Style.
A source said, “Kim and Kanye are now married on paper. They got their license in California over the past few days. Kim and North are on their way to NYC now.”
“People are probably assuming we’re going to have this massive wedding, and I think it will be – but intimate,” Kim told Vogue. “Two hundred people – just all of our closest friends – a special night for us and all the people that really love us and that have supported us.” Source
Um, having a license doesn’t mean that you’re married…it means you have a license. You must actually have your license signed by witnesses AND notarized in order to be officially married. You also have to have all this done within 60 days (in most states) from the date that you obtained the license. So unless they got married at justice of the peace dem fools ain’t married.
Accordint to RadarOnline, Kanye is trying to turn Kim Kardashian into a fashion icon.
A source revealed, “Kanye truly believes Kim can be the next Coco Chanel if she puts her mind to it.”
According to the insider, Kardashian “has spent the past year quietly and secretly educating herself on the subject of ultra-high fashion at Kanye’s behest.
“Kim began her education with extensive sit-downs with the design brain trust at Rodante, because Kim wants to evolve to the next level in terms of classiness and taste and luxury.
“Kanye wants her to focus on becoming a true luxury brand that defines a generation, like famed French fashion designer Coco Chanel — that’s who she is trying to become and that’s who Kanye wants her to become.
“Kim is open to trying new looks and Kanye couldn’t be prouder. The goal is to become a billion dollar couple, and they are on their way.” Source
Jay-Z and Beyonce have reportedly turned down their invitation to Kim and Kanye’s wedding. The reason is that the wedding will be filmed for a special episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians and they don’t want to be a part of the show.
But they’re not totally snubbing their ‘friends.’ The couple is reportedly springing for a $100K yacht for the couple to use on their honeymoon.
A source said, ‘Instead he’s making it up to his mate by throwing him the most extravagant bachelor party known to man.
‘It will cost a small fortune – and to top it all off, he’s chucked a £100,000 yacht rental in there as a wedding gift as well.’ Source
Yea, they should have known better than to think that Jay and Bey would EVA show up on KUWTK. EVA…EEEEEEEEEVAAAAAAAAAAAAA. But it is nice that they’re gonna give them a ridiculously expensive gift…I guess.
Kim and Kanye are covering the April issue of Vogue. We know Kim has dreamed of being on the cover but Anna Wintour basically hates her despite being buddy byddy with Kanye. Source
Anywho, we’re not sure what they had to do to get Kim on the cover, but I’m about 98% sure they sold North’s soul to Anna. If you see AW walking around with a Berkin that looks like it was made from baby skin then you know what North’s fate was.
Anna released a statement about the new cover saying, “Part of the pleasure of editing Vogue, one that lies in a long tradition of this magazine, is being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it. I think we can all agree on the fact that that role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T.
“As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancée on Vogue’s cover. He did nothing of the sort. The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn’t true.
“There’s barely a strand of the modern media that the Kardashian Wests haven’t been able to master, and for good reason: Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world’s spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that.”
Jay-Z and Kanye West will perform together for SXSW in Austin. Their show is open only to Samsung Galexy users with the Milk Music ad-free radio service installed on their devices. The location for the 3/12 performance is being kept secret until the day of the show. Source
Looks like Jay is continuing his very lucrative relationship with Samsung. I wonder what he has in store next.
Many people just think of Kanye West as the megalomaniac that POTUS called an asshole. But Kanye (regardless of how crazy you may think he is) is in fact a bit of a genius who comes from an interesting background. His mother, Donda West was a doctor and an educator with a stack of degrees and a pedigree most of us could only dream of. His father is a former Black Panther and was the first black photojournalist at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
And we all know that Kanye was a college dropout and he ditched books to join the rap game. But most people don’t know that he’s been making music since he was 9…9!
With that said, most of the time he comes off as crazy or unnecessarily arrogant. But one has to respect his talent and accomplishments.
The University of Missouri will offer the “Jay-Z and Kanye West” class this fall, which examines their unique relationship and iconic status in hip-hop.
Instructor Andrew Hoberek said, “I really do think that these guys are warming up to the level of major poets, and not many people think of it in those terms. Because it’s not just on a page, but it’s video art, too. So, we looked at how those complicated the questions, and how do books about poetry help us to understand rap with Jay and Kanye at the forefront.
“We looked at the larger history of rap as an art form. Specifically, how, especially with Blueprint 3 and Yeezus, there’s an identifiable push to get beyond what’s happening in the art form. They’re very much like painters and novelists in the 20th century, moving beyond the confines of the art form’s boundaries.”
TIME agrees with Hoberek, writing: “Jay Z and Kanye’s projects are now multidisciplinary, mingling visual and performance arts as integral elements of their albums and concerts, to a greater extent than their predecessors. And their collaborations inform their solo projects. All of this is worth exploring in an academic setting.”

I find it interesting that a Midwestern school is so open to a class like this. I probably wouldn’t take it but I’m sure all the middle American, middle class kids will be lined up for it.
Kim Kardashian was swarmed by photographers at a Beverly Hills medical center the other day when a man stopped and tried to help her get inside as he started screaming, “F**k these fa**ot-ass n****rs”” — referring to the paparazzi. Kim then told him it was not appropriate to use the N-word. We’re told he then screamed at her, “F**k you bitch. Just trying to help you. Shut up n****r lover, stupid slut.”
So she watched him walk into an office and called Kanye to tell him what happened. When the guy realized Kanye was on the phone he allegedly said, “F**k you N****r.”
Kanye had just arrived at the building to meet up with Kim then rushed into the waiting room of chiropractor Richard Hill and found the 18-year-old man sitting there. Witnesses say Kanye punched the guy and Kim screamed, “We have it all on tape.”
The massage therapist in the office separated the 2 men. Beverly Hills cops were called and the 18-year-old said he wanted to press charges. Source
I’m not really sure how to even feel about this whole thing. I would have wanted to punch him in the face too. But seriously, what would that have solved? Oh right, I would feel better.
Ricky Spicer of the Ponderosa Twins Plus One, is suing Kanye West, claiming Kanye didn’t have permission to use his vocals on his song “Bound 2.” “Mr. Spicer’s voice is sampled exactly as he recorded it and his voice [...] is heard several times,” said the suit, which was filed in the Manhattan Supreme Court yesterday (December 23). It also demands West provide compensation to Spicer or cease and desist from using his voice on the track. Source
I would feel bad for Kanye, since everyone is always picking on him, except I don’t.
Word on the street is that Kris Jenner thinks Kanye is ruining the Kardashian brand.
The sources say, she thinks her soon-to-be son-in-law needs some better manners, “the recent bragging, name calling and calls for attention are making her brand look bad, and she doesn’t want anything to hurt her empire. She thinks he is pushing the envelope a bit too far when he brings up religion and is always picking a fight.”
The source adds, “on the other side, Kanye has never really liked Kris and ironically has thought that her brand would hurt his.” Source
The MLB Players Association is investigating Jay-Z for possible violation of the union’s agent regulations for giving Yankees second basemen Robinson Cano a $33,900 watch for his birthday.
As noted by ESPN, section 5(B)(5)(a) of the Players Association regulations states: “No Player Agent or Applicant shall provide, cause to be provided or promise to provide, any money or any other thing of value to any player, or any person related to or associated with such player, the purpose of which is to induce or encourage such player to use or continue to use any person’s or firm’s services as a Player Agent, Representative, or Draft Advisor.”
Any gift exceeding $500 must be disclosed to the union in writing. ”Players Association officials say the seven paragraphs of rules are meant to ensure that players choose their representatives on merit rather than what the union calls ‘improper inducements,’ ” writes ESPN.com. Source
Something tells me he’ll skate around this issue like he has all the others since forming RocNation Sports.
108. Bey’s stans petition for her to not go to Kimye’s wedding
Some of the BeyHive have started a petition on Change.org to get Beyonce to skip Kim and Kanye’s wedding.
Here’s part of the petition:
“As you all know by now Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have sadly been in the news for their “engagement”. Kim Kardashian and her disgusting family are known for their rise to fame for doing absolutely nothing. Aside from being a famous slore Kim has decided to get knocked up by notorious jacka$$ Kanye West and know are planning to get married. Now we must do all in our power to stop Beyonce from attending that god forsaken wedding, since her husband Jay Z is BFF’s with Kanye he probably wants both of them to go. Beyonce should not be forced to go and sit through that torture while surrounded by the Kardashian pigs. Beyonce do not go to that wedding you don’t have to do it to please that slore and her jacka$$ fiance. Do us a favor Bey and rain check that train wreck of wedding.” Source
I mean, I don’t like them either. But damn. Is this really necessary?
Drake disappointed fans in Philadelphia, the second stop of his “Would You Like a Tour?” tour. They’d been seated for an hour when they were told the show wouldn’t go on because of safety precautions involving the construction of his stage.
Kanye’s Vancouver fans were told the second stop on his tour wouldn’t be happening due to ‘unforeseen circumstances.’
Kanye’s Vancouver date is postponed until October 31 and Drake will make up the Philly date on December 18th. Source
I only half watched this interview. It seemed like Jimmy was kind of scared of Kanye. He was way too apologetic if you ask me. And Kanye seemed ‘different’ somehow. I don’tknow if it was the way he was talking or what but something seemed off. What are you thoughts?
Kim’s lookin’ good. Although I really wish she’d take off that god damn coat. Also, she’s pictured in it twice. And he’s pictured in those mocs twice. I thought they were the kind of jerks to never wear the same thing twice…especially during fashion week. Who are they becoming…normal people?
Word is that Kanye West was considering an offer to become a judge for ‘American Idol’ but decided to turn the offer down.
A source told UsMagazine.com: “He didn’t want to go that mainstream. He didn’t want to lose any street cred. So he turned it down.”
will.i.am, Diddy and Rodney Jerkins also met with the show’s producers recently but they decided to offer the spot to acclaimed record producer Dr. Luke, who has previously worked with Katy Perry and Britney Spears. Source
Kanye can’t act normal for long enough to do an entire season of ANYTHING.
Word on the street is that Kanye is holding out on pics of Kim and Nori post birth, for the cover of Vogue. He hopes that he can convince his buddy Anna Wintour to cave.
A source says, “It’s no secret that Kanye is a huge fan of fashion, Vogue and especially Anna Wintour. But it’s also pretty well-known that Anna is NO fan of Kim or any reality star appearing in the pages of the magazine.
“Kanye is determined to make sure baby North isn’t photographed by paparazzi then splashed across the world. He knows what he wants – a professional photographer and the cover of Vogue – nothing else. But clearly, trying to persuade Anna is going to be an uphill battle.
“Kanye is convinced that he’s going to make this happen.” Source
There’s no way in hell Anna Wintour’s cold black heart will allow her to let this happen.
Kanye attacked a photographer at LAX last week. And the photog says Kanye took his camera. Well he won’t be charged by the district attorney because there’s no prove he tried to steal the camera.
Now we wait to see if he’s charged with criminal battery. But that probably won’t happen if Kanye throws some money on the situation. Source
If only I had some money to throw on all my problems. Maybe I’d run around acting a damn fool all the time too.
Kanye West has has established a non-profit organization called Donda’s House, Inc. The organization will give inner-city teens the opportunity to learn more about music education so they can their express creative side in a positive and safe environment.
The press release:
Donda’s House, Inc. a new non-profit organization established to honor the educational legacy of Dr. Donda West, the mother of Kanye West, by implementing arts and literature experiences that transform youth, will partner with the ARK of St. Sabina to offer a pilot youth education and training program called “Got Bars.”

Donda’s House co-founder and Assistant Director Che Rhymefest Smith said, “I am so happy to launch “Got Bars” to honor Kanye West’s mother’s memory and to fulfill one of my Aldermanic campaign goals. “Got Bars” will change our youth musically, get them healthy and keep them busy in a creative, peaceful environment. I know it will be an even stronger program because of our partnership with the ARK of St. Sabina.”
St. Sabina’s pastor Father Michael Pfleger said, “We are honored to partner with Donda’s House for this important new program. It complements our existing youth programs and will encourage more people to come to a creative safe haven here at Saint Sabina.”
The “Got Bars” program invites 15 – 24 year olds to apply for participation. The Program Goals include:
1. Each participant will create an original written piece that will be recorded or published and performed.
2. Each participant will improve his/her physical health through exercise and nutrition.
3. Each participant will learn life-skills (e.g. etiquette training, goal –setting, media-literacy, etc.)
Kanye West may face charges after allegedly attacking videographer Daniel ramos outside LAX this past Friday.
Daniel was filming Kanye as he left the airport and asking him questions when Kanye said, “You’re trying to get me in trouble so I have to pay you, like, $250,000,” Then Kanye lunged at him.
Police Sergeant Belinda L. Nettles said that paramedics responded and transported Daniel to a local hospital for medical attention. He said, “A police report was taken by the Los Angeles Police Department and the investigation is ongoing.”
Officer Sara Faden tells PEOPLE, “We can confirm that our detectives are handling the case, however, we’re not sure if a misdemeanor or felony charge will be filed. The charge will determine if it goes to the City Attorney or D.A.’s office.” Source
Kanye recently sat down with W magazine and talked about everything from his creative process to giving Kim a new style.
Peep it below:
On being rich: “I’m not a billionaire; I’m just a millionaire. But I’m the youngest guy I know who has this much interest in design and the ability to actually get some of it. So that makes me an important cog in the wheel.”
On design: “Furniture is my superobsession now. Furniture and pornography, still. The porn thing has never left since I was in high school.”
On Watch the Throne, his 2011 collaboration with Jay-Z: “It was like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates talking at the same time. You know which one of us was Steve.”
On his new album, Yeezus: “This music is made to spark the visionaries to stand up for themselves and help the world. Because the world isfucked.”
On Christianity and Ralph Lauren: “I’m Christian in the same way that people have issues with certain elements of Christianity. It’s like if you go into a Ralph Lauren store, maybe that buyer didn’t do the exact buy that you want, but you still really like that brand.”
On being intimidated by celebrities: “Anyone who meets me for the first time and is not slightly nervous is completely full of shit. Because when I meet people I respect, I’m nervous. When I go have lunch with Tarantino at the Chateau Marmont, I’m nervous. It’s fucking Tarantino!”
On his intellect: “Visiting my mind is like visiting the Hermès factory. Shit is real. You’re not going to find a chink. It’s 100,000 percent Jimi Hendrix.”
On why he wrote “I am a god”: “I made that song because I am a god. I don’t think there’s much more explanation. I’m not going to sit here and defend shit. That shit is rock ’n’ roll, man. That shit is rap music. I am a god. Now what?”
On his narcissim: “On one end, I try to scale it back,” he says. “Because I don’t want to close any of the doors needed to create the best product possible. But my ego is my drug. My drug is, ‘I’m better than all you other motherfuckers. Kiss my ass!’ ”
On “his” unreleased sex tape: “For the most part, I’d rather people have one of those home videos than some of the paparazzi photos that get published,” he says. “At least I recorded the shit myself. That tape couldn’t have hurt me in any way if it came out—it could only have helped.” He finally decided against releasing it, but don’t be surprised if he changes his mind. “Now, I just do exactly what I want, whenever I want, how the fuck I want,” West says. “ ‘Fuck you’ is my message.”
On Kim Kardashian as his fashion muse: “Nobody can tell my girl what to do. She just needed to be given some platforms of information to work from. “…one beautiful thing is that as she discovers it, the world discovers it. For her to take that risk in front of the world, it just shows you how much she loves me. And how much she actually loves the opportunity to learn. You got, like, a million companies saying, ‘This is impacting your brand! This is impacting your fans! And blah blah blah.’ But she still sees this light of beauty.”
On his imagination: “I live a pretty interesting life. But the life that I’m living is way less interesting than what I’m thinking.”
On the tattoo on his forearm of Madonna and Baby Jesus: “This is me and my mommy.
On how he’s sometimes misunderstood:
“God’s little practical joke on me—as an intellect who doesn’t like to read a lot—is like, I’ll say some superphilosophical shit, but I’ll say it the wrong way,” he says, laughing. “I’ll use the wrong word, so it goes from being really special to completely retarded.”
On how seriously to take him: “You should only believe about 90 percent of what I say. As a matter of fact, don’t even believe anything that I’m saying at all. I could be completely fucking with you, and the world, the entire time.”
On his style don’ts: “Even the greatest tattoo artists in the world have a few bad tattoos. And that’s Kanye West. A few of my past outfits—questionable, you know? But I’m testing. I’m discovering who I am.”
On W’s 2010 cover of a nude Kim Kardashian: “I loved the fact that it happened, that it disturbed people. I loved the fact that it put those curves right inside that Hamptons house, that there’s some Hamptons husbands who had to cover that up.”
On his rock-star status: “Instead of using it to date as many supermodels as possible or to be as much of an asshole at a restaurant as possible, I would rather use it to access great minds. To be able to go to Axel Vervoordt’s castle on the first day that I meet him.”
Kim was sure people would try to sell pictures of her baby. So shesupposedly hatched an elaborate plan to catch them. She sent a fake photo of a baby that’s supposed to be Nori to a few ‘friends.’ Sure enough, one of them tried to sell the pictures to TMZ.
Sources close to Kim and Kanye confirm that the baby in the pictures is not Nori (I refuse to call her North).
Source So waith, is TMZ gonna sell out the person that tried to sell them the pics? Because that’s the only way that Kim’s ‘plan’ will work. Wanna know what I think happened? I think this actually is little baby Nori. Kim, unable to keep anything private, couldn’t help herself and sent out the pics to everyone in her contacts list. And one-uh-dem bishes was an opportunist.
Hindsight is 20/20 and her team probably worked on this story about this ‘plan’ so that she’d still be able to sell ‘exclusive’ photos to some mag even though someone else leaked photos first.
It’s no club banger, that’s for sure. And it’s very clear that Kanye wasn’t going for a commercial album. In fact I’m not quite sure what he was going for. But it’s obvious that what he accomplished, regardless of his intent, was to give us a glimpse into what goes on inside that krazy little head of his.
Here’s what we’ve learned:
1. He’s angry (at everyone including himself).
2. He’s black (in case you weren’t sure).
3. He misses his mother like crazy. And since she was the only one to control him he uses this as an excuse to act the fu@k out.
4. He’s one of the most insecure people on earth. Anyone who has to tell us how great and God-like they are as much as this dude are either megalomaniacs OR trying to front on their low self-esteem. Kanye’s never been able to sell his ‘confidence’ to me. So when he grandstands it just makes him look sad.
5. He likes the words bitch and nigga (but who doesn’t?).
Kanye, particularly in this album more than any other, is serving Tupac Shakur to the fullest, the ultimate walking contradiction. Like Pac he’s (trying to) tackle social issues like race and religion in songs like “New Slaves”. But what’s a rap album without a song about banging chicks, like in “I’m In It.” Even in that song, he tries to get “deep” with us. What was that line? “Black girl sippin’ white wine/Put my fist in her like a civil rights sign.” Actually, I don’t even know what he’s trying to get across except that he’s into fisting. Remember kids, it’s all fun and games ‘til someone gets fisted.
I say all of this to say that as a whole I liked Yeezus. Sure, he’s nutzo, but we knew that. And I’m a huge fan of krazy. I also find the whole thing to be a bit contrived. But that’s how I look at pretty much anything that comes out of the entertainment industry. That doesn’t take away the fact that his lyrics are, and have always been, clever as a mf. Also, these beats, these beats are RIDIC! So, Yeezus gets 4 out of 5 glasses of Ace of Spades from Lo. I think I’ll share those glasses with Blue Ivy.
Post Script: “Blood on the Leaves” is too long. My attention span can’t handle any song longer than 4 minutes….especially if the final two minutes are filled with autotune fu@kery. That is all.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed a baby girl yesterday morning. Kim reportedly started having contractions Friday night and went into full labor on Saturday even though she wasn’t due to give birth for another five weeks.
Kanye had a Yeezus release party on Friday, but didn’t show up so he could be at Kim’s side.
Both mother and baby are said to be doing well. Source
Congrats to them. Let the first photo offers start rolling in.
In other Kanye news, the baby wasn’t the only thing to come early. Kanye’s album, Yeesus was supposed to be released this Tuesday, but has leaked early.
His label, Def Jam, said that they have dispatched their special “leaks” division to track down the person(s) behind the leak, but admit advanced leaks aren’t “uncommon” in the music biz.
Oh well, I’m sure he’s got a bunch of other more important things to worry about
Kanye did an interview with the New York Times where he talks about his new album and becoming a father. Peep excerpts below:
On the Grammys: “I don’t know if this is statistically right, but I’m assuming I have the most Grammys of anyone my age, but I haven’t won one against a white person. But the thing is, I don’t care about the Grammys; I just would like for the statistics to be more accurate.”
On apologizing to Taylor Swift: “Yeah, I think that I have like, faltered, you know, as a human. My message isn’t perfectly defined. I have, as a human being, fallen to peer pressure.”
On whether his pain has influenced his art: “Great art comes from great artists. There’s a bunch of people that are hurt that still couldn’t have made the album that was super-polarizing and redefined the sound of radio.”
On when he knew he was going to be famous: “I knew when I wrote the line ‘light-skinned friend look like Michael Jackson’ [from the song 'Slow Jamz'] I was going to be a big star. At the time, they used to have the Virgin music [stores], and I would go there and just go up the escalator and say to myself, ‘I’m soaking in these last moments of anonymity.’ I knew I was going to make it this far; I knew that this was going to happen.”
On Kim Kardashian: “I’m the type of rock star that likes to have a girlfriend, you know? I’m the type of soul that likes to be in love and likes to be able to focus. And that inspires me.”
On why he does not appear on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”: “You know, the amount of backlash I got from it is when I decided to not be on the show anymore. And it’s not that I have an issue with the show; I just have an issue with the amount of backlash that I get. Because I just see like, an amazing person that I’m in love with that I want to help.”
On becoming a father: “One of the things was just to be protective, that I would do anything to protect my child or my child’s mother. As simple as that. … I just don’t want to talk to America about my family. Like, this is my baby. This isn’t America’s baby.”
On working with Rick Rubin: “I’m still just a kid learning about minimalism, and he’s a master of it. It’s just really such a blessing, to be able to work with him. I want to say that after working with Rick, it humbled me to realize why I hadn’t — even though I produced Watch the Throne; even though I produced Dark Fantasy – why I hadn’t won Album of the Year yet.”
On his fashions from five-to-seven years ago: “Yeah, kill self. That’s all I have to say. Kill self.”
On his place in pop culture: “I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means. I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period. By a long jump. I honestly feel that because Steve has passed, you know, it’s like when Biggie passed and Jay-Z was allowed to become Jay-Z.” Source
Canadian model Leylah Ghobadi said that she bedded Kanye (or the other way around), while his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian was pregz. She said that he contacted her for sex as recently as last weekend. She also said that Kanye told her that his relationship with Kim is strictly for publicity.
She says she first met him at his concert in Atlantic City at Revel back in July of 2012. He spotted her in the crowd and had a member of his entourage go into the crowd to ask her to meet him backstage and for drinks in Revel’s HQ nightclub.
Leyla said, ‘This is going to destroy the Kardashian family. It’s bad. It’s really bad. It’s just embarrassing. But if I were Kim and about to have a baby, I would want to know.’ Source
Kim’s publicist says it’s not true. (of course) says it’s not true. Kanye also denies Leyla’s claims. His rep said, “This most recent attack on Kanye West and his family is totally without merit. It’s a blatant attempt by a misguided individual who is clearly seeking publicity, and another in a series of malicious stories drummed up by non-credible ‘news’ sources.
The rep adds, “This is a sad attempt to hurt two people trying to live their lives.” Source
I’m surprised this hasn’t happened sooner to be honest.
I really just can’t with Kanye playing this whole, “I don’t like the spotlight” foolishness. Of all the chicks you knocked up you had to pick the one who STAY in fron of the camera. Take off the hoodie and stop looking like the unabomber and just give in.
Kanye’s album “Yeezus” is supposed to come out in just a few weeks. But he’s still in the studio working on it.
The songs he performed on “SNL,” “New Slaves” and “Black Skinhead” received mixed reviews and are thought to not be consumer friendly. So some think he’s reworking the album to hopefully boost potential sales.
An insider, however, says that him working on the album so close to the release date is “not in any response to any negative reaction.” Source
I think this is just an excuse to stay in the studio (and away from Kim) for as long as possible.
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.
