Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Kanye West Talks Wedding & Love for Kim Kardashian in GQ

Kanye West recently snagged the cover of the most recent issue of GQ, and was open as always about his recent wedding to Kim Kardashian, clearing up rumors that he gave himself a 45-minute toast, and speaking out on Jay Z and Beyoncé not showing up. Check out some of the highlights from the interview below!

If he feels like TMZ is trying to “de-fang” him when they mock him:
“I don’t have fangs. I’m a porcupine. I’m a blowfish. Like, I’m a — what’s the fish that blows up? Yeah. I’m a blowfish. I’m not a shark, I’m a blowfish. So that perfect example about me hitting my head, it’s like a blowfish. I wasn’t coming out of my house going to a paparazzi’s house to attack them. I’m defending my family in front of my own house. I’m defending my name as someone’s screaming something negative at me. That’s a blowfish. People have me pinned as a shark or a predator in some way, and in no way am I that. I wouldn’t want to hurt anyone. I want to defend people. I want to help people.”

On rumors he gave a 45-minute toast to himself:
“And what I talked about in it was the idea of celebrity, and celebrities being treated like blacks were in the ’60s, having no rights, and the fact that people can slander your name. I said that in the toast. And I had to say this in a position where I, from the art world, am marrying Kim. And how we’re going to fight to raise the respect level for celebrities so that my daughter can live a more normal life. She didn’t choose to be a celebrity. But she is. So I’m going to fight to make sure she has a better life.”

On Jay Z and Beyonce not attending his wedding:
“All that, I wouldn’t even speak on. It doesn’t even matter to me whatsoever, who would show up. Because the most important person to show up there, to me, was Kim. And that’s all that matters to me.”

On who is responsible for his wedding photo garnering more likes than any other photo in Instagram’s history:
“It’s because of Kim. Meaning there’s no photo that I would have put up by myself, or next to one of my smarty friends, that would have got that amount of likes … Now the thing that is the most popular is also communicating the highest level of creativity. The concept of Kimye has more cultural significance than what Page Six could write.”

On why he married Kim:
“Like they said in ‘Step Brothers’: Never lose your dinosaur. This is the ultimate example of a person never losing his dinosaur. Meaning that even as I grew in cultural awareness and respect and was put higher in the class system in some way for being this musician, I never lost my dinosaur. Kim is this girl who f**king turns me on. I love her. This is who I want to be next to and be around … You mean to tell me that this girl with this f**king body and this face is also into style, and she’s a nice person, and she has her own money and is family-oriented? That’s just as cool as a f**king fighter jet or dinosaur! And just as rarely seen.”

Kanye clearly loves him some Kim K! Read the full story here!

Trouble in Kimye Paradise?

Reality star Kim Kardashian and rapper Kanye West tied the knot a mere 46 days ago. However, the newlyweds have only spent 10 days of their marriage together. Will this cause trouble in Kimye paradise?

According to a RadarOnline report, the two had the honeymoon from hell in Ireland. West tried taking her out to museums and to see artwork but, the reality star wanted nothing more than to go shopping and hang out by the pool. She even went to two separate movies in a day! According to an insider, “Kim complained and sulked the entire time they were in Ireland on their honeymoon. She didn’t like the cooler 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!”

The pair tried again with a second honeymoon when Kim demanded they go to Joe Francis’ estate in Mexico. However, that trip didn’t go as planned either. Kanye was bored the whole time. He isn’t the type to hang out by the pool all day.

The insiders states, “Kanye now recognizes that Kim’s main interests 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.”

Kanye and Kim recently put their home in Bel Air on the market so while Kanye is touring, Kim is staying with her mom Kris Jenner.

 

The Kimye Honeymoon Continues in Mexico

It seems that the recently wed Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have decided to spend their honeymoon in Mexico according to a source. Yes, this means the Kimye honeymoon continues. Actually, this latest has been dubbed the “official” one. The others were just bonus adventures that happened after their wedding- when normal people typically go on their honeymoon. Kimye is anything but normal.

As you know, the couple was married on May 24th in a posh wedding that took place in Florence, Italy from there the duo went on to Ireland and Prague for their honeymoon. Now they have moved on to vacation in Punta Mita. Because multi-continent honeymoons are all the rage. 

While on their honeymoon, the duo are also celebrating the 37th birthday of Kanye from their private residence.SO maybe they’re not living lavishly, maybe they’re just combo wedding-birthday celebrating around the world.

FYI: Earlier this week Kim posted on Instagram that she wanted to wish her new husband a “Happy Birthday”. She wrote “Happy Birthday to my husband and best friend in the entire world! You have changed my life in more ways than you know,” gushed the 33-year-old, “The way you look at life inspires me! I love you so much!!”

A source has also stated that the pair want to extend their family of three. An insider has stated, “I think Kim will definitely have another baby soon – she wants to.”

Not convinced? During an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Kardashian said that she would like to have at least three children even though her first pregnancy was rough.

“I don’t think I can do more than three tops. That would be my absolute top top tops,” she told Seacrest in February. “I even contemplate, ‘Should North be an only child?’ But then I contemplate all the … fun experiences I had, so I might have to tough it out… I was talking to Mason (sister Kourtney’s son) about it the other day. He was like, ‘Can you make a boy? I need a friend to play with’ and I was like ‘Let me think about that!’”

She said “tops” 3x so I’m thinking it’s a sign. Also…. “can you make a boy?” …. hahahahaha.

Check Out Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Official Wedding Photos!

The Internet has been going crazy about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s wedding this weekend in Florence, Italy! E! News, of course, got the exclusive pictures of the newlyweds at their incredible wedding.

Kim wore a Givenchy lace gown and a long silk veil during the ceremony, while ‘Ye rocked a custom Givenchy tuxedo. They gave traditional vows during the ceremony, which was officiated by a good friend and pastor from Miami at the Forte di Belvedere.

After the wedding, the couple hosted a reception for close family and friends, which included a four-course meal and 7-tiered wedding cake. Kim changed into a short, cream-colored, custom Balmain dress, and Kanye dedicated a LONG 20 minute speech to his bride (which is no surprise, because Kanye can TALK).

Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner also gave speeches at the reception.  John Legend sang for the newlyweds and the audience with his hit song, “All of Me,” for the couple’s first dance.

The new season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which premieres Sunday, June 8 on E!,  will showcase the couple’s plans up to the wedding and more photos and behind the scenes looks!

Check out some of the official wedding photos below!

I honestly do wish Kim and Kanye the best of luck in their marriage. For Kim, this is her THIRD marriage, and it’s gotten to the point where I feel like something has to work out for this girl! Hopefully, third time is the charm. However, she and Kanye seem really happy, and they are raising their daughter, North, together as one big  happy family. Congratulations and best wishes to Kimye!

Kanye West Set To Call Off Wedding Because Kim Had Sparks With Chris Brown?

chrisbrown

We all know Kanye West can be a diva in his own right and I can totally see him freaking out over anyone his wife-to-be Kim Kardashian has been with. Well apparently there is a rumor going around that Kim once had stars in her eyes for bad boy Chris Brown.

Radaronline.com is reporting that Yeezy

is “so upset he might even consider calling off the wedding if she ever speaks to Brown again, according to one source!

“Even though the encounter between Kim and Chris happened long before Kanye came on the scene, being Kanye, he’s still intensely jealous,” a Kardashian insider told Radar.

West was shocked to learn that “Kim and Chris, both unattached at the time, met up to talk about promotional stuff and hear what he had in mind in terms of merchandising and licensing for his new record.

“There were definite sparks, but she insisted to Kanye that nothing happened between them.

“That hasn’t stopped Kanye from having a major jealous meltdown,” the source added.

Well that certainly doesn’t mean that Kim gave it up to Brown. But we all know how Kim is and how she operates so anything is possible. So who knows what really happened! The truth of the matter is, the past is the past and now that she has a solid bank account because of her association with West, she’s good. Sad part is, if West is freaking out now about this, this marriage isn’t going to last and it hasn’t even happened yet!

On a lighter note, can you imagine a Breezy, West, Kardashian love triangle?!! You know that would NOT end well.

YE DID IT: Kanye Gets Baby Mama Kim Kardashian On Cover Of Vogue

kimkanyevogue5

kimkanyevogue10

kimkanyevoguecover

Check out this Kim and Kanye Vogue cover, y’all.

Peeps were saying she’d never make it but Kim Kardashian has landed the cover of Vogue magazine…with the help of Yeezus, of course. And he is also on the cover, but that is besides the point. That’s right, Kanye has made it happen. He managed to get the porn/reality show star on one of the most prestigious magazine covers in the world. VOGUE. Yeah, VOGUE! WTF, Anna Wintour!

Welp so much for everyone’s rant about how she will never be on the cover because she is a reality star and porn star. See guys, it helps to give it up to a rap superstar and trap him for life. Dreams do come true!

But that’s not all…baby North got her own shots in the magazine as well!

This is all kind of crazy to me. All I can ask right now is WHY?!!!! How much money did Kanye pay to get on this cover?

REPORT: Kanye West Pays $250K Settlement To Alleged Beating Victim

Reportedly, Kanye West has agreed to pay a settlement to the teenager he allegedly beat up in a Beverly Hills chiropractor office earlier this month–a nice sum of $250,000.

The incident went down after the teen called Kim Kardashian a “n—-r lover,” while they were both in the waiting room, and threw out some other ugly comments about her. Kanye later popped up in the waiting room, and reportedly punched the guy in the face. TMZ reported that the teen agreed to the $250K settlement, though at first trying to get paid in the upper six figures. He won’t go forward with any prosecution against Kanye.

Now I’m sure to Kanye, $250K is chump change, but any money coming out of my pocket for foolishness like this would piss me off. If this situation happened exactly how it’s being reported, I really don’t blame Kanye for going after the guy. It’s just sad that people adamantly try to get him agitated and violent for a payout, but that’s celebrity life. Here’s hoping Kanye has a cooler head in the future…but then again it’s Kanye, so that’s a HUGE hope.

4 Epic Rants From Kanye West’s Recent Interview Magazine Interview

kanyewest

In the February issue of Interview magazine, Kanye West says he creates ‘sonic paintings’ that have helped cultivate his image. For heaven’s sake, Yeezy just wants to create.

Check out 4 (lengthy) epic quotes from West’s interview with Interview magazine.

ON BEING AN ARTIST:

1. “I’m a trained fine artist. I went to art school from the time I was 5 years old. I was, like, a prodigy out of Chicago. I want to be able to have a thought or an idea and bring it into reality. I’d been in national competitions from the age of 14. I got three scholarships to art schools … and I went to the American Academy of Art. So the joke that I’ve actually played on everyone is that the entire time, I’ve actually just been a fine artist. I just make sonic paintings, and these sonic paintings have led me to become whatever people think of when you say ‘Kanye West …”

ON THE SUCCESS OF WATCH THE THRONE INSPIRING HIM:

2. “I want the power to create what is in my mind. That’s my dream. I want to be able to have a thought or an idea and bring it into reality.”

ON HAVING A HARD TIME TO GET BIG WIGS TO SUPPORT HIS INVENTIONS:

3. “I met with 30 billionaires, 30 companies, and basically everyone said, “F— you.” If I want to design a product, or if I think of a new way for us to view films, then I want to be able to do it. And what happened was that when we made ‘Watch the Throne,’ it was such an accomplishment, and I had a bit of money in my account, so I just started chasing other dreams. I did two fashion shows in one year — at one of them, I had go-karts that people could ride. I also shot a film in ‘surround vision,’ where I had seven screens — three in front of the audience, one above, one below, one to the left, one to the right. This is after designing ‘Watch the Throne’ — and I was putting my money towards it. I put the amount of free income that I could put into it, which went into the millions.”

ON HIS “CELEBRITY “VOICE”:

4. “As a celebrity. I have an opportunity to make a living at being the spokesperson for the third or fourth rendition of a thought — promoting something that has already been proven. The problem is that I like to be the inventor — I’m the person who works on the concept, who invents new thoughts, who brings new ideas into the universe. I’m not the guy who works on selling the idea — I’m not Vanna White for the new Hyundai. I am the guy who works on the concept for the car. Too many people are scared. But it is my job to go up every night and talk about this kind of s—. It is actually my job. I’m like a broadcaster for futurism, for dreamers, for people who believe in themselves.”

The Kanye West Religion Yeezianity Is Real!

kanye

You know how Kanye West calls himself Yeezus, as in what we can only assume is his form of Jesus? Well we all know that Kanye is a tad full of himself. Okay, the guy is a hardcore egomaniac but apparently there are people out there who REALLY BELIEVE that Kanye, excuse me…YEEZUS, is really a higher power. And so the religion Yeezianity has been born.

According to the official website, the followers of Yeezianity believe that their savior IS Kanye Christ. “His real name is never to be spoken. He is known to us only as Yeezus. He has shown the world the creative potential of a human being and he serves as a model for behavior and ethic.

And if you want to become a member all you have to do is believe in a few key principles called the 5 Pillars and they are as follows:

1. All things created must be for the good of all.
2. No human being’s right to express themselves must ever be repressed.
3. Money is unnecessary except as a means of exchange.
4. Man possesses the power to create everything he wants and needs.
5. All human suffering exists to stimulate the creative powers of Man.

The group’s founder was quoted as saying recently in an interview, “In a lot of ways, after I created it, I reflected on it and thought that this was just a rehashing of Christianity, but just throwing Yeezus instead of Jesus. And you know what? That’s why I felt Kanye did it. He just put the name there. Jesus has all this baggage and all these connotations, and Yeezus is this new thing — and that’s why I say in the ‘Our Savior’ part of the site, ‘We don’t speak of his public persona.’ Because Yeezus is when Kanye elevates to that God-level, which I feel like we all have the potential to do. That’s why if it takes off, in the future, people would forget Kanye and his antics, and instead focus on what the message is.”

Yes, there really are some interesting peeps out there. Will you be joining the following of Yeezianity?

Kanye West Thinks Coinye West Creators Are Gold Diggers

coinye-west-300x168

Welp, people are trying to make money off of Kanye West’s name and he’s furious. The thing is that this particular idea is kind of cute and West is probably just ticked off that HE didn’t think of it himself.

West and his attorney Bard Rose filed those nasty cease and desist papers against the creators of Coinye West. Yes, COINYE West, a new form of currency that the coders are saying started out as a “joke”. Well, the joke got a bit bigger than they thought. And even though West and his team threw over the big shut down, the launch of Coinye West already happened AND became an internet sensation on both Facebook and Twitter.

Unfortunately when it comes to trademark infringement, there’s nothing funny about it!

Not only is West’s face used for the currency, but the name itself being a pun on his name is making a huge case for West.

West’s attorney Brad Rose is coming for the seven anonymous coders of the currency saying, “Given Mr. West’s wide-ranging entrepreneurial accomplishments, consumers are likely to mistakenly believe that Mr. West is the source of your services. Notify the cryptocurrency community at large of your infringing actions and pursue all legal remedies against any business that accepts the purported COINYE WEST currency.”

Now those certainly sound like fighting words but from what I gather, the coders are just kind of thrilled they are getting attention.

One of the coders wrote, “We said Coinye West and we were like, ‘Holy… we gotta make that.’ We want to release this to the public before the man can try to crush it. They’ll still come after us, but that’s OK.”

Again, I think Kanye is just ticked that he didn’t think of this idea.

Kanye West Bound 2 Video Is…Well…

Interesting. Cheesy. Poorly made…and well…cheap.

The Kanye West Bound 2 video was debuted on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and it seems as if after watching the video Ellen didn’t even know what to say other than, “that’s cool”. Cool as in we should expect the official Kimye sex tape to be released shortly.

In the video, West and his woman hop on a motorcycle together while vistas of landscapes and all sorts of natural scenery whiz by behind them. Although you can totally tell, it was one of those green screen moments and poorly edited. My guess is he edited it himself?

While on the motorcycle, the couple basically look like they are bumping and grinding to the beat of the song. And to be honest, they probably really WERE! Take a look for yourself and then let me know what you think.

Via the Ellen show, Kanye also talks about his relationship with Kim and addresses his critics. You have to check these videos out after you get done cleaning up the puke from watching the above video.

Kimye and the Indecent Proposal

Kim Kardashian, as we all know, desperately wants some headlines. The last few weeks, she has finally gotten her wish, raising the stakes with a public proposal by her man Kanye. But Kimmy claims that she wants to rein in her famewhorin’ and settle down as a mother. She even went on The Tonight Show to cry about how badly the media portrayed her as she ballooned during her pregnancy.

So imagine our shock and utter surprise when we discovered that Kim and Kanye are suing a man for filming and then distributing their public proposal online. Kimye are going after MixBit and its owner Chad Hurley (co-founder of YouTube) for posting their proposal online.

The reason?

Kimye had plans to release that film on a very special episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. You can bet your last dollar that somewhere Kris Jenner is screaming like a bat out of hell from lost funds.

Chad Hurley better watch is back!

Kanye West Pulls the Plug on Louis Vuitton

kanye-west-elyse-walker

Another day, another Kanye West tirade. So who is the hip hop star whining about today?

Louis Vuitton!

For those of you that actually listen to his music, you know that the rapper called himself ‘the Louis Vuitton Don’ in his debut album and then proceeded to design a line of sneakers for the luxury label in 2009. Well, how quickly things have changed!

Now, Kanye is stating he will never design for the brand again and is calling the label one of the most overpriced in the business.
This from the man that designed shoes for the label at $800 a pop. Now, who would be caught dead paying that amount of money for this douche’s shoes?

We got bills to pay!!

Video of Kanye Proposing To Kim

You knew there was a video for the proposal. Isn’t there ALWAYS a video when it comes to Kim Kardashian? Well…it’s true!

We all heard the news yesterday that Kanye West proposed to his baby mama Kim Kardashian and now today the video just so happens to make its way to the internet. And to be honest, Kim doesn’t appear to be THAT excited. There really was no jumping around or doing somersaults or any of that other crazy business. No big makeout session. It was just a hug and a small arm flail…and there was no zoom on her big “o” face like we saw in her very first tape she made back in the day.

Was this just planned? At any rate, I’m sure we’ll see all of this shenanigans when they got it all edited for the show.

Watch the video of Kanye proposing to Kim below and then let me know what you think.

When Will Kim Kardashian Marry Kanye West?

kim-kardashian-and-kanye-west

Will they? Won’t they? Oh, the speculation! When will Kim Kardashian Marry Kanye West?

At the start of the week, the speculation as to whether or not Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will tie the knot was pointing to yes. By mid-week, it was no, no, no. Today? Who knows. Is it some crazy plot to keep us guessing? It’s possible.

Here is what we know re: Yes vs. No.

Yes: According to reports, Kanye really wants a wedding and Mama Kris has his back. She’s in full support of nuptials. And we’re not talking some private affair. Nope. It’s go big or go home, folks. Kanye and Kris are pulling for a big, massive, gigantic wedding of a wedding. In fact, in true “momager” style, the word is Kris is convinced it will “look bad for the family” if the couple don’t get married soon.

No: Kim has been married before- a few times, actually. And she’s done the big wedding. If Kanye and Kris want a wedding, they may just have to settle for subtle. Can Mama Kris do subtle? Can Kanye do subtle? In all honesty, can Kim do subtle?

At this point, one thing seems clear- Kim Kardashian is in no big rush to marry Kanye. Maybe at some point she’ll concede to the big wedding bit, or maybe not. But at this point? Well, Kim says a wedding can wait… for now.

What do you think? Does big or small win out?
