Kanye Got Kim The Ugliest Christmas Present Ever

Kanye+West+Kim+Kanye

Kim Kardashian’s baby may have had the best Christmas ever, but Kanye wasn’t going to let his lovely fiance Kim go without. So he got her what is quite possibly the ugliest gift ever. EVER. Of course he thinks it’s fabulous.

He commissioned artist George Condo, who did the cover art for Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, to paint naked people on an Hermes Birkin bag. Here’s what that looks like (from Kim’s Instagram):

Here are some choice comments fans left:

  • “LMAOOO”
  • “That cannot be a genuine present surely”
  • “What a piece of shit kanye thinks anything he gives or does is art?? Kim is an idiot too she thinks everything he does is amazing two people so ignorant shouldn’t be so rich and influence people”
  • “Wtf”
  • “Way to destroy a beautiful bag. I would have been totally jealous, but not with this crap painted all over it!”

What do you guys think of Kanye’s gift?

Oops, Kanye West is Being Sued Over that ‘Bound 2′ Sample

bound 2

Some guy named Ricky Spicer, a former child star from the 1960s group Ponderosa Twins Plus One, is pretty pissed off at Kanye West for using his lyrics, apparently without permission, in ‘Bound 2′. You know what happens when you get mad at a rich person, right? You sue them!

Here’s the coverage from Digital Spy:

The 56-year-old says his lyrics were recorded when he was aged 12, after being discovered at a talent show in 1969.

Spicer has also sued West’s labels Roc-A-Fella Records, Island Def Jam Music, Rhino Entertainment and Universal Music Group.

“Mr Spicer’s voice is sampled exactly as he recorded it and his voice… is heard several times,” the suit states.

The lawsuit was filed in the Manhattan Supreme Court yesterday (December 23). It also asks West to provide compensation to Spicer or cease and desist from using his voice on the track.

Kanye West and Universal Music Group have yet to speak about the story.

Oh God. Maybe he’s got a point and Kanye will have to pay for the rights, or maybe this will all come to nothing. Who can say? (Who cares enough to say?) Maybe I should sue Kanye and Kim for ruining my eyesight and giving me nightmares for life after seeing that video.

Kanye West Is Sorry, Jewish People

kanye west

Kanye West gave another crazy ass interview on Power 105 last month, during which he claimed that part of his difficulty in finding success in the entertainment business is because Jewish people have all the connections and all the money in the world. He actually meant that as a compliment, apparently, but lots of people – like Anti-Defamation League Director Abraham H Foxman, for example – didn’t take it that way, so he was forced to issue an “apology”.

“I thought that I was giving a compliment,” West said. “But if anything, it came off more ignorant. When I said this comment about Jews having money and blacks not having money, I think that it was kind of like an ignorant compliment. I think it was an ignorant compliment.”

“I don’t know how being told you have money is like an insult, that would be like if [somebody] complimented black guys and said, ‘All black guys got big penises’.
You don’t want to be the black guy that raises your hand, like, ‘No! That’s not true. I got proof.’  I thought by saying everybody had money that would be a compliment. It was an ignorant compliment. Maybe I would like to take that statement away.”

LOL whut. So… Jewish people should be pleased about being stereotyped because it’s not a BAD stereotype, in your eyes? This is too slippery of a slope for me to even go down on a Monday morning, two days before Christmas, so I’m going to leave this one alone and just call bullshit on all of it.

Kris Jenner Blabs About Kim And Kanye’s Wedding

Kim+Kardashian+Kris+Jenner

Kris Jenner pretty much needs to use her kids to get any sort of attention. First she flapped her gums about Khloe Kardashian’s divorce, and now she’s blabbing about Kim and Kanye‘s upcoming wedding. Here’s the exclusive she gave People:

We have a pretty big family. I don’t think it will be two people in a chapel, if you know what I mean!

She also admitted that she hasn’t actually been asked to help plan the wedding or do anything, saying,

I don’t know if they’ll [Kim and Kanye] let me jump in. That’s two very creative minds getting together and they definitely have their own ideas.

I can picture exactly what their wedding will be like. From these “two very creative minds” I’m sure we’re going to see:

  • A carnival. A literal carnival. Like a big-ass ferris wheel at the reception.
  • Champagne vending machines.
  • Lots of C-list celebrities throwing themselves in front of cameras, while Jay Z and Beyoncé try their hardest not to be noticed.
  • Life-sized cutouts of Kanye lining the aisle.
  • Kim in 3 different wedding dresses. One of them will be some tacky white Herve Leger bullshit.
  • Kanye interrupting the best man’s toast.
  • Kanye interrupting the father-daughter dance.
  • Kanye interrupting the cake-cutting.

You get the idea.

What do YOU expect from this wedding? Aside from an expensive divorce.

North West Is Growing Up So Fast!

north west

If Kanye West had his way, no one would ever look upon the face of his daughter North West, but considering he’s engaged to the most narcissistic and self-absorbed woman in the world (his perfect counterpart!), unfortunately that will never happen. Instead, Kim Kardashian likes to sprinkle our lives with little doses of Nori, and we don’t really mind because she’s pretty cute.

Kim posted the above photo on her Instagram page yesterday, and Grandma Kris quickly reposted it soon after. Everyone loves Nori! I used to think she looked entirely like Kim, but you can see Kanye in her more and more as the days go by, for sure. She looks happy enough, but I suppose it’s early days, so the lasting effects of having to be Kim & Kanye’s daughter haven’t hit her quite yet. Let’s hope she somehow manages to claw her way out of that family before that happens.

Kanye’s Ranting Continues: This Time It’s About Grammy Nominations

Kanye+West+shopping

It’s Kanye‘s world and we just live in it, apparently. After ranting a heaping load of Lewis Carroll-style nonsense at a heckler, Mr. West decided he wasn’t done and that it was time to address something very troubling to him: his two Grammy nominations. Why is that troubling? Well, because Kanye thinks he should have a lot more than two. Of course he does.

During a show in Phoenix, Kanye went on this delightful tangent. Via CBS News:

I’m 36 years old and I have 21 Grammys. That’s the most Grammys of any 36-year-old. Out of all of those 21 Grammys, I’ve never won a Grammy against a white artist…And ‘Yeezus’ is the top one or two album on every single list. But only gets two nominations from the Grammys. What are they trying to say? Do they think that I wouldn’t notice?

Do they think that, someway, I don’t have the power to completely diminish all of their credibility at this moment? But no, no. Only positive energy, only positive vibes. But when you see me talking about what people are doing when I say ‘marginalized,’ when I say ‘boxed in,’ when I say ‘hold back,’ when I say people are afraid of the truth, that’s one example right there in front of you. And people come to me and congratulate me on those two nominations. [Expletive] those nominations.

Guys, he’s starting to remind me of Randy Marsh. He’s closeasthis to yelling, “STAN??? STAN???” at this next show. So between this latest rant and his bit about how performing live is like going into war, he really needs to just stop talking for a while.

I don’t see that happening.

Video: Kanye West Ranted at a Heckler

kanye west

After the last story, I felt compelled to use the old saying “birds of a feather flock together”, because Kim Kardashian certainly belongs with Kanye West. Between her utter cluelessness about the world around her and Kanye’s extreme megalomaniacal delusions, they’re a right pair. So what’s Kanye done now? Well, he got heckled during his show in San Antonio, Texas when a female fan shouted for him to take off his Maison Martin Margiela mask, which is fucking hideous. I’d have requested the same.

In any case, this really set Kanye off and caused him to exclaim the following:

“Now, you can see my face on the Internet, every motherfucking day. I came here, I open up a mountain… and you tryin’ to tell me how to give you my art?”

Do I look like a motherfucking comedian? Don’t fucking heckle me. I’m Kanye motherfucking West. I’m dead fucking serious.”

Well, yes, you do sorta look like a comedian, and by comedian I mean a joke. You look like a joke. And as for being Kanye West, that may be the case, but one thing you are not, sir, is well-versed on what heckling means, because uh… that ain’t it. Also, who cares who you are? I’m Jennifer Fucking Still! Don’t you heckle me, Kanye!

Kanye had the fan ejected and carried on with his normal bullshit and I really wish he thought the next frontier of his artistic completion was to go to space and he booked himself and Kim a seat aboard a shuttle that will never return to earth.
