Bruce Jenner confirmed months of speculation on Friday during a 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer, telling the world that he is transgender and is “for all intents and purposes… a woman”. While the response has been overwhelmingly positive from both the public and his friends and family (or so some of them would like to pretend – looking at you, Kris), one person took it a bit harder than others, and that’s Kim Kardashian. That is, until her husband, Kanye West, really opened her eyes by dropping some profound philosophic truth (about himself, natch) on her.
Bruce Jenner said that Kim Kardashian didn’t know what to think about his transition to a woman after catching him one day in a dress. But then something changed.
“You know what really turned me around?” Jenner recalls the reality TV star asking. “Kanye.”
The rapper, who recently married Kardashian, had the following advice for her:
“I can be the most successful person in the world…I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, which I am…but I’m nothing if I can’t be me…if I can’t be true to myself.”
Because Kanye having the freedom to be an egocentric maniac is definitely the same as being trapped in the wrong body and suffering gender dysphoria because of it. But whatever! She got there in the end, I guess.
Kim Kardashian hasn’t been shy in admitting that she’s struggled to lose weight ever since giving birth to North West a couple of years ago, but that probably just means that her body is where it’s meant to be, size wise. Her husband, however, doesn’t think so – Kanye West hired her a personal trainer and he’s none too pleased that the trainer also agrees that Kim is probably fine where she’s at.
On Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, he lashed out at wife Kim’s trainer for saying she “couldn’t imagine” seeing Kim at her goal weight of 120 lbs.
“She’s like, ‘There’s no way. I can’t even imagine you 15 lbs. lighter,’ ” Kim, 34, told sister Khloé Kardashian of her trip to the gym. “Kanye’s like, ‘Wait a minute. You are the trainer and you’re telling me you can’t imagine her 15 lbs. lighter? We need to get another trainer, then, because if I tell you she needs to lose weight in between her toe, you would have figured out a f—ing toe weight.”
Wow. If Kim wasn’t… you know, Kim, I’d probably feel really bad for her since she’s married to such a controlling egomaniac. If Kim wants to lose weight for herself, that’s fair enough – we’re all our own harshest critics, but she needs to be realistic in terms of results. Her frame is her frame and she’s never going to be Kate Moss, and that’s worked out just fine for her. But for her husband to become enraged because her trainer can’t maker her skinnier, i.e. his idea of ideal? Dear God.
Kanye West has been terrorizing audiences around the world for years, and following in his unrequited love/musical hero Beyonce‘s illustrious footsteps, he was actually invited to headline this year’s Glastonbury Festival over in the UK this summer. The problem is… no one really seems to want him there. So badly do they desire his absence that a guy called Neil Lonsdale put together a petition to dis-invite him from the festival… and it’s been surprisingly successful.
Kanye West is an insult to music fans all over the world. We spend hundreds of pounds to attend glasto, and by doing so, expect a certain level of entertainment.
Kanye has been very outspoken on his views on music….he should listen to his own advice and pass his headline slot on to someone deserving!
Lets prevent this musical injustice now!
At the moment, the petition has over 71,000 signatures. Will it have any effect? Eh, probably not, but wouldn’t it be amazing if it did? Kanye would no doubt unleash the most narcissistic rant of his entire career – a tall order, but I know he’s got it in him.
No matter how rich she is and how many expensive outfits she can afford, Kim Kardashian just can’t seem to keep her clothes on. I think I can speak for us all when I say that we’ve seen her naked far, far too many times. It’s too much. It’s over-the-top. I just want the woman to WEAR SOME FRIGGIN’ CLOTHES. Is that too much to ask? Apparently so.
Kanye West is like a kid in a candy shop when it comes to the fact that he gets to have sex with a perfect surgical specimen, it seems, as he took to Twitter yesterday to unveil a whole slew of naked photos of his wife and simultaneously try to make “SWISH!” a thing. Not gonna happen.
If you used a high-grade scientific tool to magnify my heart about 500,000x, you’d probably find the tiniest sliver of pity inside for Kanye West. I mean, the guy has delusions of grandeur and likely thinks he’s the second coming. He’s desperate to one up everyone on earth, though to what end, no one’s really sure – and I don’t even think he is. But such extreme narcissism leads to Kanye talking major bullshit to the point where he becomes extremely hyperbolic… or maybe just a liar. One such lie? That Barack Obama calls Kanye at home so they can shoot the shit via phone.
Of course, Obama was asked about this during an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week and called bullshit on this nonsense (as if he should have to) in his typically charming Obama way, saying, “I don’t think I’ve got his home number.”
I mean, could Obama be lying? Sure. But is he? Come on, of course he’s not. As if the President of the United States has nothing better to do than to sit on the phone with an egomaniac who thinks he shits gold? I don’t think so.
Some paps apparently caught up with Kanye later and told him that Obama denied the phone story, to which he replied, “I love Obama. He called our house before. He knows that. Don’t try to pit us against each other. I love Obama.” So basically, if you call Kanye out for lying, you’re trying to pit him against the person he’s lying about. Important lesson.
If anyone has been around the musical block a few times, it’s Madonna. While lately she’s lost it a bit, you can’t deny her legendary status and the fact that she kinda knows what she’s talking about in a lot of ways. To that end, she’s got some advice for Kanye West, with whom she’s worked a bit in the studio (when she could actually get him to pay attention to anything) which all boils down to the fact that he needs to chill the hell out.
“Don’t go to awards shows looking for justice,” she says in interviews for Rolling Stone‘s new cover story. “That’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Just go and have fun. I never got too engaged with who wins awards or not, because I don’t honestly think it’s that important. So that part of him I can’t relate to. Like, what’s the point of fighting for somebody to … like, ‘This person should have got it?’… I think sometimes he takes things too seriously.”
She also offered her thoughts on West as a creative force. “It’s really hard to describe Kanye in one sentence, so I may have to use several,” she says. “He’s a brilliant madman. He can’t help himself. Like, he doesn’t have the same filters other people have. He has to blurt things out – he’s always saying inappropriate stuff. But he also has brilliant ideas, if you can get him to pay attention long enough, working with him in the studio. He would come and go. He would drive me bonkers, because he’s got so many things going on in his life. And this seemed to be the theme of my record, working with people who can’t get off their phone, can’t stop tweeting, can’t focus and finish a song. It drove me crazy. But when they did pay attention, it was brilliant. I was, like, running around with a butterfly net. But I feel like the music business needs him, because everyone’s become so politically correct, so safe. I don’t always agree with the things he says or does – I don’t always like his music, even. But he’s a beautiful mess. I love him.”
Pot calling the kettle black there about the saying inappropriate shit, isn’t it, Madonna? Also, it actually kinda sounds like she doesn’t really like Kanye at all. He’s an ADD-ridden madman who takes himself too seriously and has no filter. Wow, he sure sounds like a barrel of laughs.
Kanye West had an absolute fitat the Grammys this year when Beck took home the Album of the Year award, because if Kanye doesn’t get his way, the world is going to know about it. And, in case you forgot, there are no real artists in the world besides Kanye and Beyonce. Everyone else should just step aside and make sure they get all the awards because that’s what’s right.
At least that’s how he felt before… and now he’s seemingly had a change of heart. Not only has he extended the olive branch of peace to his once sworn nemesis Taylor Swift, but he’s also offered a public apology to Beck in the most meaningful way possible: on Twitter.
I would like to publicly apologize to Beck, I’m sorry Beck.
