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…

Kanye West seems to make giant strides forward as an intelligent human being and then takes massive steps back again. While performing on Bryce Jordan Center in University Park, PA last Thursday, he opened fire on radio DJs (of course! Why not?) Charlemagne and Sway, saying that they needed to “shut the fuck up” (basically, stop criticizing him) because they haven’t done anything with their lives compared to him. Uh… okay.
Lest we forget when Kanye went crazy on Sway a few months back when Sway asked some totally understandable, interesting questions about Kanye’s relationship with pop culture and his work within the system he claims to hate. It seems like he really just does not like having to answer for himself, or having to explain himself in any meaningful way, which makes me feel like he’s obviously not all that happy with what he’s doing or knows it’s problematic.
There’s no doubt that Kanye is talented and really intelligent with some great ideas. However, his egomania and megalomaniacal tendencies tend to completely overshadow that, which really is a shame.

If you remember, Kanye West kicked off 2014 in style by punching an 18-year-old kid that called Kim Kardashian a “n****r lover” at a California clinic earlier this month. Of course charges were pressed and while the racist dickhead of a kid probably deserved a nice smack in the face, it wasn’t Kanye’s place to be delivering blows and it’s cost him bigtime – more than $250,000, in fact!
Sources familiar with the negotiations tell us … the young man who allegedly hurled racial epithets at Kim earlier this month has agreed to the civil settlement and now feels satisfied enough that he does NOT want to go forward with a criminal prosecution.
Law enforcement sources tell us … the D.A. has not decided whether to charge Kanye with battery. The reality is … there’s almost no chance of that happening. First, the D.A. now has an uncooperative victim. Second, the victim’s alleged racial epithets will not sit well with the jury. And there are probably lots of Kanye fans in the jury pool.
We’re told during the settlement negotiations the victim’s demand soared to the upper 6 figures, so $250K is just a fraction.
It just goes to show: be an absolute asshole so that you infuriate someone to the point where they assault you, then cash in bigtime. Well done, asshole. Kanye needs to learn to keep his hands to himself, however, or he’s going to be working just to pay these people off.

The 2009 MTV Video Music Awards may have been nearly five years ago, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still talk about that fateful day when Kanye West dared to interrupt Taylor Swift‘s acceptance speech by insisting that Beyoncé had the greatest video of all time? In a new interview with Steve McQueen for Interview, Kanye reflected on how he got over such a difficult time, especially with all the backlash he received.
MCQUEEN: But there must have been moments of doubt or depression or sadness. I mean, with what happened after the Taylor Swift incident [at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards] and all the negativity that came your way as the result of that. How did you deal with it all mentally, physically, and spiritually?
WEST: It’s funny that you would say “mentally, physically, spiritually” because my answer before you even said that was going to be “god, sex, and alcohol.”
MCQUEEN: People can get lost in all of those things. So how did you arrive where you are now after coming through that period?
WEST: Well, I don’t have an addictive personality, so that means that I can lean on what might be someone else’s vice just enough to make it through to the next day. You know, just enough religion, a half-cup of alcohol with some ice in it and a nice chaser, and then …
MCQUEEN: A lot of sex. [both laugh]
WEST: Yeah—a lot of sex. And then I’d make it to the next week.
Well, that’s… lovely. However, it wasn’t even the weirdest part of his interview. The weirdest part was when he compared being famous to space exploration:
MCQUEEN: I hate to put a stereotype on any profession, but there seems to be a certain loneliness associated with being a musician. Do you ever feel lonely?
WEST: Well, I’ve got my astronaut family. You know, becoming famous is like being catapulted into space—sometimes without a space suit. We’ve seen so many people combust, suffocate, get lost in all these different things. But to have an anchor of other astronauts and to make a little space family … I mean, it’s not like I’m the guy in The Hunger Games  begging for people to like me. I’m almost the guy with the least amount of “likes.” I wanted a family. So god gives you opportunities, and you make sacrifices for something that’s greater.
All in all, this is one of Kanye’s sanest interviews, which I know isn’t saying much but it is at least an interesting look inside the mind of a delusional egomaniac. Well worth the read, but be warned – it’s a LONG one.

Bruce Springsteen is The Boss, and what he says goes. He knows music, and he knows what he likes. That turns out to be Kanye West, who Bruce describes as “incredible”. He had a lot to say about Yeezus in a new interview with NPR – have a read.
“[He] is incredible. I mean, the record-making facility, there’s a lot of hours in those records. And I saw him on television, he did the song called ‘Blood on the Leaves’ on Later… With Jools Holland – it was fantastic, you know.”
“I still find him very interesting. I’m not necessarily driving [to] it in my car, you know. I probably fall back on the stuff that I listened to as a kid or something if I’m driving around. But I do listen. I listen to [it] a lot because there’s a lot of information in it and it’s just fascinating record-making.”
I’m with Bruce on Kanye’s musical talent – the guy is a great producer and has some really interesting artistic ideas. It’s just too bad that he’s a megalomaniacal egomaniac with a fleeting grip on reality. That tends to overshadow any actual artistic work he’s doing lately, and that’s a shame.
Also, I love Bruce Springsteen. Nothing else to say about that, I just think he’s amazing.
