Another day, another Kanye West onstage rant. While performing at the Wireless Festival in London on Friday night, Kanye got booed for losing his damn mind and ranting about Kim Kardashian (and how he proposed to her 7 years ago for the first time) and discrimination in the fashion industry.
From The Daily Mail:
Addressing the crowd in a bejewelled mask, Kanye said: ‘F**k saving face and what it’s supposed to mean, it’s about living my dream.
‘I told Kim seven years ago I would marry her and I made it happen. I just wanted to make something awesome and be awesome and change the world, and that’s exactly what I plan to do.’
And on the fashion thing…
The rap mogul’s revelation came after he was booed by festival goers for halting his Wireless performance for 20-minutes to launch into an epic rant.
He told the audience: ‘I’m not going to mention any names but… Nike, Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Don’t discriminate against me ‘cos I’m a black man making music.’
And it would seem the move didn’t go down too well with the crowd, with audience members reportedly deserting the al fresco gig in droves.
One festival-goer told MailOnline: ‘He was laying into the ‘machine’ and ranting about the public’s perception of him. Hundreds of people left the park early because they were so bored of his long rant.
‘There was serious booing towards the end of the speech, as people got so fed up and just wanted to hear him perform.’
LOL, I mean, is anyone surprised? This guy has more issues than Vogue and can’t seem to get his shit together to save his life. Onstage during a festival where you’re the headlining act – which no doubt he will have been paid a pretty penny to do – is not the place to air your grievances with the world. Start a fucking Tumblr or something, dude.

Kim Kardashian was in NYC with her horrible mother looking at apartments. Husband Kanye has a place in SoHo, but apparently it’s not good enough for them. A source told People, “They need a bigger space with private parking.”
OH, EXCUSE ME.
Here’s more on the story:
Kardashian checked out a $17.25 million townhouse in Greenwich Village that has six bedrooms, seven baths, a private garden and private parking inside the building, and a $12.99 million penthouse with a 1,500-sq.-ft. terrace complete with private pool, the New York Post reports.
The family, who are currently staying with Kardashian’s mom in L.A. while they renovate the Bel Air mansion they bought in January 2013 for $11 million, joked in April’s Vogue magazine that they would be keeping West’s L.A. home to store Kardashian’s giant wardrobe. “We have a ‘walk in’ house,” West joked.
Kanye, you make it so hard to like you. Kim, I never liked you. I can’t believe these people. How much do they really need, seriously? How much bigger and grander do they have to go? Am I jealous? You’re damn right I’m jealous, I wish I had their money. Why the hell does Kim need all that space? What’s she going to do with a 1,500 sq.-ft. terrace aside from using it as scenery to take more photoshopped pics? Oh, I guess they need a massive apartment so they can throw more stupid parties for their kid.
Yeah, I’m grumpy today.

Another day, another case of Kanye West running his mouth about shit he knows nothing about. You know how he ranted about spending 4 days perfecting his and Kim‘s wedding picture since Annie Leibovitz pulled out just days before the big event? Uh, turns out Annie was never confirmed for the job in the first place. Nice try, though!
So … Annie’s just sent us a long, rambling statement which also contains comments from Kanye — and it never directly addresses the “afraid of celebrity” comment.
The rep says Kanye was frustrated he couldn’t “collaborate with Annie” but he’s not blaming her for bailing …. even though his comment sure sounds like blame.
The rep says, “Unbeknownst to Kanye, she was never confirmed.” Annie’s rep adds, “she would have loved to have taken their wedding portrait and was disappointed it didn’t happen.”
And get this … the statement says Annie is responsible for shooting Kim and Kanye’s Vogue cover, but she’s “not known to shoot weddings.” It sounds like she wasn’t really into doing it in the first place.”
And get this BJ … Kanye says, “The most-liked Instagram photo of all time, shot by Annie Leibovitz. Oh, I’m sorry for dreaming out loud. Again.”
So… basically Kanye was just butthurt he didn’t get his way so he whinged about it (and lied in the process), making him look like an awfully poor sport. Sounds about right.

Half the time, I don’t even know what it is that’s coming out of Kanye West‘s mouth. It’s just a bunch of bullshit gibberish that means nothing and yet still somehow manages to shock and offend people. His latest foray into insanity is his revelation at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity on Monday was claiming that a) Annie Leibovitz is “scared of celebrity”, b) that Kim Kardashian is the most important person on the Internet and c) that she was distraught over how the flower wall behind them in their wedding photo was all the wrong colour or whatever the fuck.
From The New York Post:
“Let me tell you something about that kiss photo that my girl put up … this was pissing my girl off during the honeymoon, she was exhausted because we worked on the photo so much because Annie Leibovitz pulled out right before the wedding. I think that she was, like, scared of the idea of celebrity.”
“Because Annie pulled out, I was like, ‘Okay, I still want my wedding photos to look like Annie Leibovitz,’ and we sat there and worked on that photo for, like, four days because the flowers were off-color.
“Can you imagine telling someone who wants to just Instagram a photo, who’s the No. 1 person on Instagram, ‘We need to work on the color of the flower wall,’ or the idea that it’s a Givenchy dress, and it’s not about the name Givenchy, it’s about the talent that is Riccardo Tisci — and how important Kim is to the Internet.
“And the fact the No. 1 most-liked photo [on Instagram] has a kind of aesthetic was a win for what the mission is, which is raising the palette.
“It was a long time,” he added — drawing laughs from the audience, before later adding, “Why did Annie Leibovitz pull out one day before the wedding?”
I’ve never liked Annie Leibovitz more, to be honest. Also, she’s made a living out of shooting celebs, so… what Kanye is saying makes literally zero sense. Maybe she just didn’t want to be part of your bullshit spectacle?

Little North West, daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, celebrated her first birthday on Sunday, which blows my mind because seriously, I feel like she was only born 2 or 3 months ago. Where does the time go?
Her birthday happened to fall on Father’s Day, and Kim posted the above photo of Daddy and baby on her Instagram page yesterday that is way too cute – and that’s coming from someone who really cannot be bothered with anyone in this family.
Here’s her caption:
This is what life is about! Our baby girl turned 1 today! We played so hard they passed out while we were watching the game! Happy Father’s Day to the best daddy in the world! The way you love our daughter and protect her makes me filled with so much love! #BestDayEver #Twins #HappyFathersDay #HappyBirthday
Cute. They even went out and about for the day, just so the paparazzi could get some nice, clear pictures of the family. Again, I like to be fair and impartial, so I gotta say, Kimmycakes is looking chic and sleek in these photos. Get it, girl… and then quickly go away again.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got married less than a month ago and have taken approximately 19 vacations since then, but none of them were the “real” honeymoon. They toured Ireland and the UK, they spent a few weeks around mainland Europe, but it was all just foreplay for the actual honeymoon getaway, which is apparently being held in Mexico.
Less than two weeks after they returned from an Irish getaway following their lavish nuptials, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are vacationing in Punta Mita, Mexico, to celebrate the rapper’s birthday.
“They’re staying in a private house on the beach,” says a source, noting that the town is a favorite spot for all the Kardashians.
In between margaritas, sunbathing and toasting West, who turned 37 on Sunday, the newlyweds will have plenty of time for reliving favorite moments from their big day.
To be honest, I’m shocked Kim would lower herself enough to go to Mexico – you would think it wouldn’t be glamorous enough and meet her high standards. Blah.
Anyhow, must be nice to live a life in which all you do is vacation. Literally, her actually non-vacation life is a vacation. The girl does nothing but take selfies and film a reality show… what’s there to need an escape from?
