Kim Kardashian and Kanye West finally got their Vogue cover, much to Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s chagrin (among others). And it’s not just a bunch of mediocre photos we have to look through and pretend to care about – there’s also an accompanying interview that’s full of the exact kind of bullshit you’d expect to hear coming out of their mouths. And after reading through it, one thing becomes very clear: North West is going to need so much therapy.
North’s parents have already involved her in their creative lives. “I take pictures of her all the time and dress her up,” says Kim. “I put Kanye’s big chains around her, and I put a little Louis bag and some Jordans, and I was like, ‘What up, Daddy?’ ” Kanye, meanwhile, has made an adorable little stop-frame video of North caught in her natural movements that he’s edited to make it appear as if she’s break-dancing.
Well… that’s special. I’m sure she just loves that.
Oh, here’s another fun fact: Kris Jenner won’t let North call her Grandma/Nana/Gram/etc. No, she’s going by the name “Lovey”. WHAT? How is that a thing?
I wouldn’t rot your brain reading the whole thing, but suit yourself…

Lots of people aren’t very happy about the fact that Kim & Kanye got their own Vogue cover, and I can’t really blame them. These two are a disaster, and certainly not really meant for the cover of a premiere fashion magazine (though try telling them that). While plenty of celebrities had their complaints, I’m sure, one stood brave enough to actually throw shade publicly, and it was none other than Buffy the Vampire Slayer herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar.
I mean, in one sense, Sarah Michelle Gellar has been on the cover of Vogue zero times, so there could be a bit of hateration there. In the other sense, I totally get where she’s coming from. The magazine took a massive step down by putting Kimye on the cover, 100%, but I think it’s pretty hilarious that SMG (and so many others) have sworn it off forever because of this.
Meanwhile, Anna Wintour has insisted that Kimye didn’t beg for the cover, it was TOTALLY her own decision (LOL, kay):
“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,” Wintour, 64, wrote. “I think we can all agree on the fact that that role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T. (Or perhaps that should be to a K?)”
“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 fiancee on Vogue‘s cover. He did nothing of the sort,” she explained. “The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn’t true.”
HAHAHA. Yeah, alright.

Well, nothing can quite undermine the credibility Vogue quite like putting Kim Kardashian and Kanye West being given a cover story. Kim was chasing that dream for a long ass time, and now it’s actually happened.
Not really sure what’s with Vogue not only choosing these two idiots to cover the magazine, but USING A HASHTAG? Is that what it’s come down to? Anna Wintour must be rolling over in the cryogenic chamber she rests in overnight to keep her going.

Remember that misdemeanor battery case stemming from Kanye West apparently attacking a photographer at LAX last July? Well, it’s reached its conclusion, which has left Yeezus himself with a two year probation term, 250 hours of community service and 24 anger management sessions. Damn!
A no contest plea is treated the same as a guilty plea for purposes of the sentencing.
Judge Alan Rubin sentenced West to serve two years’ probation for the misdemeanor battery conviction. He must attend 24 anger management sessions, perform 250 hours of community service and pay restitution to the victim.
Rubin said he will review the community service to make sure he is getting no special treatment.
Photographer Daniel Ramos told the judge he wanted West thrown in jail.
“I was only doing my job, and he broke the law,” Ramos said. “I believe that if I did what he did to me, I would have been put behind bars.”
Well, I don’t think being an asshole and shoving a camera in someone’s face is really a “job” to speak of – or at least not a respectable one – but yeah, it doesn’t justify physical violence. Unless, of course, the photographer is being violent and threatening yours or your family’s safety, so there’s that.
In any case, I do think Kanye can benefit from some anger management. Let’s just hope he doesn’t flub the “community service” bit like Chris Brown tried to do.

I know we’ve all been waiting with bated breath to know when Kim Kardashian and Kanye West would finally walk down the aisle and exchange those sacred vows in front of a TV audience in a ceremony paid for by E!, right? I mean, who doesn’t love a love story?
Kimye will marry in Paris on May 24th, just… not at Versailles, since they got a big ole ‘HELL, NO!’ when they inquired about that.
Here’s what Kim told Ryan Seacrest (of course), via US Weekly:
“We’re having a super, super small, intimate wedding,” she told the Keeping Up With the Kardashians producer. “As we go along, we’re realizing we want it to be smaller and more intimate than people are imagining and thinking.
She noted, too, that rapper West, 36, has been very involved in the planning of the event — though there are some details he’d rather not handle. “There’s certain things where I’m like, ‘I know you’re going to hate the seating chart, so I’ll take care of this,’” North’s mom explained to Seacrest. “And then there’s some things that are really important to him. [But the] seating chart is like death.”
Yes, because I’m sure you’re actually going to sit and do the seating chart, Kim. Just like your sisters “wrote a book”, eh?
Let’s just get this fuckery over with for these two, so they can break up in a year’s time. Then again, who knows – between her lack of a brain and his ego about his, they just might be the perfect match.

If Kanye West could change one thing about his life and career, what would it be? Would he never have bothered going after Kim’s ass? Would he maybe not have worn that kilt on stage? Would he rethink ranting against Sway, who maybe DOES have some of the answers?
Well, no, none of the above. He has one regret in life, and it’s that his late mother Donda won’t ever get to meet his daughter, North West. Aw, man – that’s actually really sad.
Speaking at a concert last weekend, Kanye told the audience:
“These past ten years have been amazing, there’s been some ups and downs.
“I made some mistakes and I’ve made some accomplishments. There’s only one thing I regret. There’s only one thing I wish I could change out of everything that’s ever happened. I wish that my mother could’ve met my daughter.”
Yeah, I can’t even snark on that – that’s just so heartfelt and really a shame. Donda passed away in 2007 after experiencing complications from cosmetic surgery. Kanye’s said before that her death left him suicidal for a time, and that’s gotta be rough.
See, when he says stuff like this that’s sincere and without ego, he can be so great! Kanye is an intelligent guy with the capability of being really eloquent and not at all obnoxious. It’s just when all that other shit gets in the way…
