So… Kanye West’s New Album Leaked


It’s the moment no one everyone’s been waiting for: Kanye West‘s new album Yeezus has leaked to the masses! Now, I’m of the mind that Kanye the man is an egotistical asshole with some serious anger issues and zero tact, but that doesn’t change the fact that artistically, he’s done some amazing things. 808s & Heartbreaks was ridiculously underrated. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy also had its bright spots and everyone loved Graduation (aka Kanye’s commercial days). Yeezy, unfortunately, is not one of those amazing things. (By the way,  I know the image above isn’t the actual album artwork; it’s just a pretty hilarious piece of fanart circulating around tumblr at the moment.)

For those of you who have spared your eardrums, allow me to put it this way: this album is a hot fucking mess. It’s all over the place sonically, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing in general, but paired with the ‘diary of a madman’-type lyrics, it’s a nice big dose of DEAR GOD NO. That’s not to say I wasn’t into some of the beats here and there and that I didn’t laugh at lyrics like these (from ‘I Am God’ – yes, that’s seriously a track title):

I am a god
So hurry up with my damn massage
And a French ass restaurant
Hurry up with my damn croissants
I am a god

I’m all for food references in music – especially rap! – and I’m also aware of the joy of a delicious buttery croissant, so I can see what inspired this. On a serious note, though: really, man? You’re so serious about your art and are so ~influential~ and ~relevant~ that you choose to rap about pastries? I don’t like to tell people how to do their jobs, but…

Is 'Yeezus' a total disaster?

Another Obvious Blind Item About Kanye

kanye west blind item

Kanye West is the target of a few blind items and they’re all so obvious. Keep in mind that just because he’s (more than likely) the answer to the item doesn’t mean that it’s necessarily true. But I can believe most of this one, only because it’s about how awesome Kanye thinks he is. I mean, come on, could this item really be about anyone else? They’re not even trying. It’s almost as crappy as our stupid blind item.

From Blind Gossip (and watch out, it’s a doozy!):

This musical celebrity cheated, he knows it, and he is totally lying about it.

Some of you may be wondering: Why would a famous celebrity – who has both a real significant other and a fake significant other – cheat on them both? [...] his cheating is not so much about his sexuality as it is about his narcissism!

One of his business associate – a very respected person in the music industry – explained it to us this way:

“He really does think that the world revolves around him because he is convinced that he is so special. Everything that everyone else is and does and says is valid only in the context of whether their actions support or oppose the grandiose view he has of himself.

[Of course he cheated] but of course he is going to lie about it! He thinks that everyone (man or woman as long as they are very beautiful or talented or famous or special in some way) should want him sexually! Everyone should respect his superior talent! Everyone should only say things to him that he wants to hear! Everyone should only take photos of him when he wants them taken! Everyone should believe everything he says [whether it's true or not]! In his opinion, anyone who doesn’t do these things or believe these things or act the way he thinks they should act is either stupid or ungrateful or unworthy or a loser and deserves to be attacked or ignored by him.

[His business associates] know all this about him and we know that he can turn on the superficial charm and act all nice to get what he wants. [But we also know] that it’s just temporary and superficial and that he is really just empty or angry and doesn’t genuinely give a sh*t about anyone except himself. [I hope that this helps] you understand why he cheats and lies about it and also why doesn’t have any real friends. It’s all about him using people to get what he wants all the time and getting angry and lying if it doesn’t go exactly the way he wants it to go. He is incapable of behaving differently!”

So for those of you not aware, Kanye has been rumored to be gay for a while now. If you weren’t aware of this, please tell me.

Kanye West’s Reps Say Cheating Claims Are “Malicious”

leyla ghobadi kanye west

You’ve all heard the story by now: Mr. Influential – otherwise known as Kanye West – has apparently been cheating on pregnant Kim Kardashian with some 24-year-old Canadian “model” named Leyla Ghobadi. She, of course, came to the press with the claims and is probably just a fame whore to rival Kim herself. After all, she was paid $20,000 for her “story” by Star Magazine.

Shit that’s so preposterous and has no credibility is generally ignored, and yet Kanye’s reps have hit back at the story, calling it “malicious” and insisting that Leyla just wants to hurt the couple. LOL.

From US Weekly:

“This most recent attack on Kanye West and his family is totally without merit,” his rep tells Us Weeklyin a statement. “It’s a blatant attempt by a misguided individual who is clearly seeking publicity, and another in a series of malicious stories drummed up by non-credible ‘news’ sources.”

“This is a sad attempt to hurt two people trying to live their lives,” the rep adds of parents-to-be West and Kardashian, who are set to welcome a baby girl in July.

I don’t know that this girl is trying to “live their lives” – she just wants an easy payday and obviously doesn’t give a shit either way about how it affects them privately. That’s the same thing even if she DID sleep with Kanye – it wasn’t ‘cos she was desperate for The D, it’s because the dollar signs popped into her eyes the minute the situation arose. Seriously.

Holy Shit, Kanye West Is Full of Himself: ‘I’m So Credible, Influential and Relevant’

kanye west

One word that’s never been used to describe Kanye West is “modesty”, and that’s part of the reason we hate love him. He’s so unabashedly up his own ass that he can’t see the light of day, and that’s what makes his rare interviews so entertaining. Take his new profile in The New York Times (only the best for Yeezy!) – he spends the entire thing talking about how great he is with zero fucks given. You have to applaud such intense dedication to assholery.

Of course we’re still talking about the time he interrupted Taylor Swift at the VMAs (because why not?), and while Kanye spent a couple of years apologising and trying to live it down, he’s now changed his tune and basically said that he only said sorry because everyone was on his ass about it, and at the end of the day, whatever he has to say is more important than anything else – even when the focus isn’t on him.

I am so credible and so influential and so relevant that I will change things. So when the next little girl that wants to be, you know, a musician and give up her anonymity and her voice to express her talent and bring something special to the world, and it’s time for us to roll out and say, “Did this person have the biggest thing of the year?” — that thing is more fair because I was there.

But has that instinct led you astray? Like the Taylor Swift interruption at the MTV Video Music Awards, things like that.

It’s only led me to complete awesomeness at all times. It’s only led me to awesome truth and awesomeness. Beauty, truth, awesomeness. That’s all it is.

LOL! Awesomeness! I love it. He’s out of his mind. He also gave a choice quote about his ideas on baby Kimye/fatherhood.

What thoughts do you have about parenthood?

That is a really interesting, powerful question. One of the things was just to be protective, that I would do anything to protect my child or my child’s mother. As simple as that.

Have you ever felt as fiercely protective over anything as you are feeling now about those things?

I don’t want to explain too much into what my thoughts on, you know, fatherhood are, because I’ve not fully developed those thoughts yet. I don’t have a kid yet.

You haven’t experienced it yet.

Yeah. Well, I just don’t want to talk to America about my family. Like, this is my baby. This isn’t America’s baby.

It’s not America’s baby! God, this is the profile that just keeps giving. It’s a hearty five pages long, so I suggest giving it a read. Maybe he really is close to a meltdown.

Kanye’s Really Close To A Meltdown

kanye west NYC

Kanye West is getting fed up with being followed around by photographers, and I don’t blame him, he’s living a quiet, normal life and isn’t dating someone world famous who hungers for publicity. Ha, sarcasm is great! Mr. West has hinted that he wants to move to France where paparazzi aren’t as invasive, and where his chances of being attacked by street signs are significantly lower. This, combined with the fighting and tension between he and Kris Jenner, could lead to a meltdown for this “non-celebrity.”

Mr. West verbally lashed out at another photographer, today. Here’s what happened (from TMZ):

Yesus was walking around NYC with his posse, when a photog — not one of ours — politely asked (from a safe distance) … “What’s good, Kanye?”

Kanye’s response — “DON’T ASK ME QUESTIONS, MAN!” The pap said goodbye to KW … but then he made a fatal mistake — he wished Kanye a happy belated birthday!!!

Kanye’s response — SHUT UP! DON’T EVER TALK!

Yes, we all know what delicate flowers paparazzi are and how all they want is to brighten celebrities’ days.

And all Kanye really wants is attention for his music. From USA Today, complete with their annoying censoring:

Honestly at this point, I could give a (expletive) about selling a million records as long as I put out an album for the summer that y’all can rock to for all (expletive) summer… At this point I don’t really give a (expletive) about outside opinion.

We’ll see.

Kanye West Is “Too Squeamish” To Be With Kim Kardashian During Labor

Kanye West Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian is due to give birth to Kanye West‘s child any time now, and he’ll most definitely be there to support her… from the waiting room. Turns out, Kanye has no plans of being in the delivery room as his baby shoots out of Kim’s vagina because he’s “too squeamish” to be witnessing all that grown up girly stuff. Yuck!

From In Touch Weekly:

In Touch can exclusively reveal that although Kanye has assured his pregnant girlfriend Kim Kardashian he plans to be at the hospital when she goes into labor, “he won’t physically be in the delivery room,” an insider tells the mag, on newsstands now, adding, “He’s very squeamish and doesn’t want to be around blood.”

With only a few more weeks to go, Kim, 32, who is due to give birth to her and Kanye’s daughter in July, is prepping last-minute details.

Like her sister Kourtney did, Kim will give birth at LA’s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Her $3,000-a-day deluxe birthing suite includes a full-size bathtub, separate sitting room and flat-screen TV. “She will have an epidural — no C-section,” a family insider tells In Touch. “It’ll be the same routine as Kourtney.” But unlike her sister, Kim will not be letting cameras into the delivery room.

Oh, man. Listen, we know Kanye doesn’t like the reality show grind (uh, bad choice in romantic partners then, bro), but since Kim’s not letting cameras into the delivery room – which, admittedly, is a surprise – what the hell? He’s “too squeamish”? No one’s gonna make him stand down in front of her open legs and watch as the baby’s head pushes through, but he could at least be there to offer some support. SMH at these people. They both need to just go, far far away.

Kanye Dragged His Ass To Kim’s Baby Shower

Kanye West is getting really good at hiding from Kim Kardashian, but even he knew he wouldn’t be able to get out of her D-list studded baby shower. So he showed up but pulled a total DiCaprio:

Here’s an exclusive from Radar on Kanye’s sunshine and lollipops attitude:

Kim Kardashian‘s boyfriend, and soon-to-be-baby’s daddy, Kanye West, showed up at the E! star’s baby shower as guests were leaving the swanky soiree, and tried to avoid cameras that were rolling to capture the day for her reality show, is exclusively reporting.

“Kanye arrived as many of the guests were leaving,” a source told exclusively. “You could tell Kim was wondering where he was. The singer didn’t look happy to be there [and] dodged cameras that were shooting for Kim’s reality show.

“Whereas Kim was extremely gracious to all of her guests, and made it a point to spend time talking to them, Kanye looked like he had been sucking on lemons. Several of Kim’s friends felt sorry for her because Kanye just couldn’t put a genuine smile on his face.”

What? No! This sounds like very unusual behavior for Kanye West! Are we sure we’re talking about the same person??? Oh, Kanye, how could you be so…heartless? (YEEEEAAAHHH!!!!)

Anyway, yeah, not surprised he acted like this. He was an ass, but I still think at this point in time, it sucks to be Kanye. They’re all his poor decisions, yes, but it still sucks. And I still do not understand why he wanted to get involved with this family.
