Kanye West’s friends abandoned him when he started dating Kim Kardashian

Kanye West has always fancied himself a Very Serious Artist, so when he started dating Kim Kardashian a few years ago, all of his Very Serious Artist friends were not feelin’ it and apparently everyone left him in the cold and decided they were not down with that. Kanye opened up about how he was the first genius to realise that Kim could be a fashion muse and how he calls Kris Jenner “Mom” in a new interview with Style.com.

It’s learning. She was always my muse, now she’s become other designers’ muses. Or designers’ muses, because like I said, I don’t want to disrespect designers by calling myself a designer, I just think I have a vision of something that I want to do. But God has a special way to teach people through life. I guess I got a little more credit for my second collection than my first, for whatever that is worth. But soon as we started dating, fashion people were really opposed to the idea of reality stars. And all the relationships, the somewhat friends that I had somewhat built up, completely turned their backs on her and me. They already had their back to her, and now they turned it to me. The so-called traction that I was getting in the high-fashion world was completely thrown out the window and I was finally allowed to go to school, where every day I was in my mom [Kris Jenner]’s house, in my little brother’s old room, Rob’s old room, re-tailoring a Céline skirt, re-tailoring a Saint Laurent jacket, re-tailoring a Zara top, re-tailoring Wolford … And day by day by day, [Kim and I] learned, we got better. We looked at the photographs together and she improved my style, we improved each other.

It’s funny that Kanye thinks they’ve helped each other’s style when they both dress fucking atrociously – much worse than they ever did before they met. Kanye seems intent on stuffing Kim into every outfit like sausage meat and Kanye… well, I wouldn’t necessarily call his clothes “style”, but to each his own.

Also, I can’t decide if it’s cute or really desperate that he’s referring to Rob as his “little brother” and Kris as “Mom” – I suppose you do that when you’re married to someone and for better or worse, these two do seem perfect for each other because they’re the world’s biggest narcissists, but I just can’t picture it.

Kanye West makes his debut at New York Fashion Week

Kanye West considers himself a jack – er, a genius – of all trades, so it’s only natural that he would be part of New York Fashion Week, right? Yesterday, Yeezy put on his first runway show for his Yeezy x ADIDAS collaboration, which I think is all about footwear but I couldn’t really tell because I was so distracted by the whole Hunger Games chic situation he had going on.

I mean, look at this bullshit. I’m all about high fashion and I get that art is art, but seriously? Someone call Jennifer Lawrence and tell her to bring her Katniss outfit – she’ll fit right in. Oh, and Kylie Jenner got to be a model, too.

Oh, and he dragged Kim Kardashian and his 18-month-old daughter North with them, and Nori wasn’t too pleased.

Who brings an 18-month-old to a fashion show and sits them in the front row? Who does it? These idiots. Notice Bey and Jay left Blue Ivy with a sitter. Have some dignity – that child wants no part of this fuckery. Even Anna Wintour was moving away.

No thanks to this whole thing.

Kanye West is planning a collaboration with Taylor Swift

I don’t know when exactly the switched flipped in Kanye West‘s brain that turned him from an incredibly focused, prolific artist to a raving lunatic, but I’m sick of it, and I think it’s pretty safe to say the rest of the world is, too. After his latest stunt at the Grammys on Sunday, Kanye felt the need to make waves again on Wednesday during an interview with Ryan Seacrest, where he revealed that he’s planning to go into the studio with none other than Taylor Swift.

Would you collaborate with Taylor Swift?

Yeah, she wants to get in the studio and we’re definitely going to go in. Any artist with an amazing point of view, perspective, fan base, I’m down to get in the studio and work. I don’t discriminate, I don’t have an elitism of music because of like how many Grammys or you know, the amount of ratings you get on an album. I that think everyone loves music whether they love hip-hop, alternative, country, and if I could be involved in giving people any type of energy, advice in the studio, whether you’re Beyonce, whether you’re Taylor Swift, whether you’re Jay Z, whether you’re Beck, whoever, and they can be reciprocal with that, I’d like to be involved with that.

Oh, so now Taylor Swift counts as an artist? Fuck off, Kanye. He’s not a music elitist, but Beyonce is the best artist of all time (besides himself, natch) and Beck doesn’t count? This guy is the worst. What’s even worse is the fact that he clearly lacks self-awareness so severely that he doesn’t even realise the ridiculousness of the crap coming out of his mouth.

Let’s hope this collab never comes to be. I know Taylor has her own issues, but I’d hate to see her lower herself to this bullshit – and it IS bullshit.

Kanye West was NOT happy with Beck’s Album of the Year Grammy win

Remember in 2009, when Kanye West got himself in a shitload of trouble for rushing the stage during Taylor Swift‘s VMA acceptance speech? He pulled the same bullshit again at the 2015 Grammys, but in a jokey way, so it was totally hilarious instead of completely inappropriate, right?!

Beck won the coveted Album of the Year award at last night’s ceremony, beating out Kanye’s beloved Beyonce (the woman he wishes he was with instead of Kim but never had a chance). Agree or disagree with this result, most people – including, you know, the actual nominees – handled their loss with some amount of grace and police clapping. Kanye, who let’s be clear was NOT nominated in this category, rushed the stage to protest before quickly running offstage to uproarious laughter from the audience (and abject horror from Bey and Jay-Z):

Huh. Well yes, ha ha, that’s all very funny. Kanye’s learned from his mistakes! He has a sense of humour! All is well in the world, right?

Right?

Well, no, because after the broadcast ended, Kanye headed over to talk to correspondents at E!, where he tore their logo off the mic and went on a long-winded rant about how awful the Grammys are because giving Beck that Album of the Year award means that creativity isn’t being celebrated (because, you know, only Beyonce and Kanye and Jay-Z can be creative in the world) and yada yada.

“The Grammys, if they want real artists to come back, they need to stop playing with us. We ain’t gonna play with them no more. Flawless, Beyoncé video, and Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé.

And at this point, we tired of it because what happens is, when you keep on diminishing art, and not respecting the craft, and smacking people in the face after they deliver monumental feats of music, you’re disrespectful to inspiration. And we as musicians have to inspire people who go to work every day and they listen to that Beyoncé album, they feel like it takes them to another place, then they do this whole promotional event that, they’ll run the music over somebody’s speech, the artist, because they wanted commercial advertising.

And by the way, I got my wife, I got my daughter, and I got my clothing line, so I’m not gonna do nothing to put my daughter at risk, but I am here to fight for creativity. That’s the reason I didn’t say anything tonight. But y’all know what it meant when ‘Ye walks on that stage.”

I think Kim’s face says it all, here:

Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney release ‘Four Five Seconds’ video

five four seconds

Honestly, the new Rihanna/Paul McCartney/Kanye West track ‘Four Five Seconds’ is one of the most perplexing single releases in recent history. It’s an absolutely horrendous song with a collaboration that just does NOT fit (and that probably only happened because they thought it would be ~unexpected~ and ~legendary~), no matter what way you slice it. I get that RiRi needs to get back out there, though I don’t think this is the way to do it. I’m not really shocked at Kanye, though – he’s always trying to one-up everyone with some crazy shit (which REALLY worked with 808s and Heartbreaks, but NOT here).

Here’s the video, which was released yesterday:

Ugh, this is AWFUL. What do you think?

Kanye West featuring Paul McCartney – ‘Only One’

kanye west north west only one

Even though Kanye West is a bit unstable, you have to admit the guy has some pretty impressive chops when it comes to music (or maybe you don’t have to admit it – whatever, it’s a free country). I’ve been on board for pretty much everything the guy has done, musically speaking – 808s and Heartbreaks is still one of the best, most underrated albums – but I don’t know if I can get on board with this.

Basically, Kanye wrote ‘Only One’ since he felt like it was his late mother’s way of speaking through him to his daughter, North West. The song is… not great, and some of the vocal effects are so distracting that it’s hard to get at that deep meaning, but I suppose it is there. I don’t know why Paul McCartney is involved with this, either, but he’s a bit messy himself these days, so… yeah.

Half the song is Kanye singing ‘Tell Nori about me’ over and over again, there’s a little Wurlitzer interlude, etc. It’s a bit too all over the place for me, this one. What do you guys think? And Happy New Year, by the way!

Kim Kardashian reveals Kanye West’s rules for dating

kim kardashian kanye west

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s marriage has lasted far longer than anyone ever thought (and longer than her made-for-TV marriage to the oafish football player guy whose name I can’t even remember), so they must be in a great position to share their secrets to a healthy and happy relationship, right? It all goes back to their dating days, when Kanye set some serious rules for their time together.

“When we first started dating it was rude if we brought our phones with us out, so I learned from him not to bring my phone.”

“We have rules at the table. If we are eating at a restaurant, we’ll wait to do it (take pictures) when we are done eating.” She even praised Yeezus for the rule. “He’s taught me to take a little time for myself and I’ve taught him stop a little more to take time and take pictures and stuff.”

Question – and a serious one: Is Kim Kardashian really that stupid that she honestly had no idea that it was rude to sit staring at your phone all night when you’re out with someone you’re in a relationship with? Is she that self-absorbed that she WANTED to be staring at her phone all night when she was out with someone she was supposedly falling in love with? I’m almost afraid to know the answer (though I think I already do).

Anyhow, here’s video of Kim talking about this, and performing the infamous “Meep meep, get out of me car” Vine, which she’s apparently obsessed with:
