Anna Wintour pretty much called Kim Kardashian and Kanye West tasteless

Everyone lost their shit when Kim Kardashian and Kanye West appeared on the cover of Vogue earlier this year. The internet wouldn’t stop talking about it, thousands of subscribers threatened to (or actually did) cancel their subscriptions to the fashion magazine and basically we gave Kimye and Vogue EIC Anna Wintour exactly what they wanted: more attention. But what did Anna Wintour REALLY think? How could a woman whose life is dedicated to haute couture allow such a travesty to happen? Well, there’s no accounting for taste, is there?

Here’s what Wintour told CNN journalist Alina Cho at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday night (via Fashionista):

“I see the role of Vogue to reflect what’s going on in the culture. The first celebrity that I put on the cover of Vogue was Madonna, and that was considered completely controversial at the time, too. It’s such a long time ago probably no one remembers, but she was a very controversial figure. Now she’s part of the establishment. I think if we just remain deeply tasteful and just put deeply tasteful people on the cover, it would be a rather boring magazine! Nobody would talk about us. It’s very important that people do talk about us.”

LOL, well, that solves that, then. So, it’s basically okay to celebrate tasteless people because the public wants what it wants, so even if she doesn’t belong, we have to make her belong to sell copies. Nice! Love the standards Vogue has set there.

Kim Kardashian is buying a private island to build North West a theme park

Ah, how the rich live. So dumb, so pointless. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West apparently have so much money between them, that they want to buy a private island off the coast of Australia on which they can build a Neverland-like theme park for their daughter, North West.

From The Mirror:

She is known to shower her only child with lavish gifts while they jet-set around the world together, but Kim Kardashian’s daughter North now reportedly looks set to get own private theme park to play around in.

According to New Idea magazine, the curvaceous TV star is secretly looking into purchasing Turtle Island in Queensland, Australia, for the sum of $5 million AUD.

The publication goes onto to state that Kim will most likely rename the idyllic location Isle Kardashian, which is said to boast views of the Great Barrier Reef.

Private Islands Online says the property in question is fit for a “movie star or recluse celebrity”, and includes a four-bedroom mansion, helipad, botanical gardens and a swimming pool.

Meanwhile, New Idea suggests Nori could soon be enjoying her own water slide and ferris wheel.

Huh. That seems like a colossal waste of money, but then, so’s everything else these idiots do, so…

Kanye West let North West ruin an Hermes purse for Kim’s birthday

Kim Kardashian recently turned howeverthehellmany years old, and for her birthday, she got a one-of-a-kind gift from husband Kanye West and more importantly, from their daughter North. They gave her a very fancy, artist-designed Hermes bag that cost thousands and thousands of dollars… only really it was North who had painted all over it and Kim is just dumb.

From People:

“Kanye had a box, a purse, this Hermès purse, and I opened it and I thought it was so cool. It was all painted really cool and then there was my computer and it said, ‘Press Play,’ ” Kardashian shares.

“I pressed play and my daughter was sitting outside painting the purse,” she explains. “I thought it was an artist that painted the purse, some custom thing. I thought it was some new artist, and it was my daughter. It was amazing and I have it all on video.”

Yes, you read that right. Kim Kardashian is unable to tell the difference between a custom designed bag from a real designer and something her 1-year-old threw some paint all over. God bless us everyone.

Also, only the Kardashian/West family would ever think it’s wonderful to deface a four figure bag with an infant’s art skills.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West go to Taco Bell

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have deigned to honour Los Angeles with their presence this weekend, and after hitting up a movie theatre, Kimye (which includes the “Oh God, guys, I so need to go on a diet!!”-whinger Kim) decided to hit up a Taco Bell drive-thru.

I’m not quite sure what in the hell is going on with this outfit, but it’s another absolute disaster. Do you think Kanye picked it out for her?

North West plays with dolls of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West get bored of parenthood often enough that they leave daughter North West at home with doll replicas of themselves to play with since they can’t be bothered to be there and play with her themselves.

Some people might think this is pretty cute, but I think it’s ridiculous and narcissistic and everything that’s wrong with this entire family. Your daughter needs her parents, not cloth doll version of them and a handful of nannies to watch her while you swan off to get your tits out in Paris in the name of “fashion” or rant on stage, or whatever the hell it is they do. I seriously fear for this child’s future if this is the kind of people she’s being raised (or not raised) by.

Kanye West on Wheelchair-Gate: “Pick another target”

kanye west

Kanye West really doesn’t get why you’re mad that he told someone in a wheelchair to stand up during his concert. Just because he wouldn’t take the fan’s word for it and felt the need to send his security into the audience to make sure the guy was legit handicapped and not just making it up for fun (???) and complained about the time it was taking to verify this so that he could move on with his setlist doesn’t mean he’s a terrible person, right? I mean… right? At the end of the day, it’s Kanye that’s the real victim… says Kanye.

From Billboard:

“Pick a new target, ’cause I’m not one of these dumb-ass artists that you’re used to,” West said at his Brisbane concert, the final date on his Yeezus tour of Australia.

He said the media will cover stories such as “Kanye West buying ice cream” and a jet-skiing squirrel, while ignoring issues such as kids being killed in Chicago or unnamed people being shot by police.

He said the media was trying to “demonize” him, and went on to call out Matt Lauer, Michael Strahan, Whoopi Goldberg and Robin Roberts, saying efforts to discredit him won’t work, noting he is “a married Christian man with a family” who makes sure “everybody has as good of a time as possible” at his concerts.

If you’d like to torture yourself by listening to/watching his entire rant – and believe me, he goes on and on about all kinds of bullshit, like how he’s a good “married, Christian man” and all this nonsense – here ya go:

Will this guy ever get a clue? Probably not. I just hope his career starts tanking sometime soon so that he can fade into oblivion and eventually file for bankruptcy like the rest of ‘em.

I will say that he makes a good point in that we should all be paying more attention to the awful injustices that happen in the world – people being shot and killed by cops (and each other) is awful and a big deal and is something worth working on. But that doesn’t absolve Kanye for acting like a total asshole. I mean, come on!

Kanye West told a wheelchair-bound man to “stand up” at his concert

kanye west

Oh, Kanye West. So sweet, so innocent… so very, very stupid and inappropriate. During a concert in Melbourne on Friday night, Kanye really wanted the audience to enjoy themselves, so he insisted they stand up and threatened to not go on with the concert until every single person had done so. He’s not totally unreasonable, of course – you were exempt from this if “you got a handicap pass and get special parking and shit”. What a gentleman!

Apparently Kanye needed one audience member to wave one of his prosthetic limbs in the air to prove his handicap and only then was he happy to move on. However, he apparently later sent his security guard into the audience to check that another audience member was indeed handicapped and not just pretending so that he didn’t have to stand at a fucking Kanye West concert (??????).

From The Daily Mail:

But when another fan remained seated, he stopped the song Good Life, saying, ‘This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song, it’s unbelievable,’ before sending bodyguard Pascal Duvier into the arena to check whether the person was in fact in a wheelchair- which they were.

‘The crowd was also yelling that he was in a wheelchair but he waited for Pascal’s confirmation,’ the witness said, while others said the crowd made ‘wheelchair motions’ to alert the singer to his mistake.

Uh… okay? Apparently after THIS incident, Kanye said it was “fine” for the fan to stay seated. Does this guy have brain damage or something? I feel like that can be the only possible explanation at this point of the shit he comes up with.
