I may not be a huge fan of Kanye’s music, but his words? That’s a completely different story. His words are like little bits of treasure that spew forth from his mouth whenever he deigns to open it up at us lowly mortals. Somehow, everything he ever says is always the best thing that anyone’s ever said. He’s a powerhouse of wisdom, a fountain of knowledge and truth. In short, he’s glorious.
That’s why I was so pleased when he tweeted some heavy thoughts yesterday. No one can make you think like Kanye can.
Here’s what he had to say:
I usually never tweet questions but I struggle with this so here goes… Is the word BITCH acceptable? To be more specific, is it acceptable for a man to call a woman a bitch even if it’s endearing? Even typing it in question form it’s still feels harsh? Has hip hop conditioned us to accept this word? Do we love this word as much as we love the word N-GGA in an endearing way? correction, Here’s the age old question, would we refer to our mothers as bitches? Would’ we call our fathers n-ggers or better yet N-GGAS? If n-gga is such a positive word, why do we feel so uncomfortable for white people to say it, even with a hall pass? Is it ok to use bitch as long as we put BAD in front of it? Like you a BAD BITCH. Perhaps the words BITCH and N-GGA are now neither positive or negative. They are just potent and it depends on how they are used and by whom?
I was recently questioned about the use of the word BITCH in my music and initially was offended by anyone questioning anything in my music. Stevie Wonder never had to use the word bitch to get his point across. I will admit that I sometimes go back an omit cursing from my records. I like to use profanity as a tool and not a crutch. I’m not tweeting to say what we need and what we don’t… I just wanted to think out loud with you guys today…
Now that all the thought holes in your brain are all plugged up for the day, I guess just go get a juice box and watch Dinosaurs on Netflix or something. And maybe when your mind isn’t so blown, we can try to discuss Kanye’s philosophizing, all right?

From Hollywood Life:
Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner are at war over Kim and Kanye West’s upcoming reality show. Kim wants the show to focus on her relationship with Kanye and their adventures in the fashion and music world. But Kris is demanding that she have complete creative control over the show, and wants it to be full of drama and chaos to pull in top ratings!
A friend of the Kardashian family tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, “It’s not pretty! Kim is sick and tired of Kris trying to control every aspect of her new reality show with Kanye. They don’t share the same vision at all. Kim wants it be cute and sweet and Kris wants drama, drama, drama!”
How does Kanye feel about the drama? He wants to keep both ladies happy!
“Kanye is keeping his mouth shut about the reality show. Of course, his number one priority is making Kim happy, but he doesn’t want to get on Kris’ bad side. He has agreed to go ahead with the show, but refuses to get in the middle of Kim and her mother,” the friend said.
Kim and Kris are planning on buying a pricey flat in London, where they hope to film part of their reality show. Kim wants to tape episodes of the November launch of the Kardashian Kollection line in London.
The insider says, “Kris is convinced that the show will only do well if there is drama, so she wants Kim and Kanye to pretend like they are fighting over which flat to purchase in London. Kim thinks this is completely ridiculous and is not willing to put on an act for ratings. Until Kim and Kris can see eye to eye, nothing is going to happen unless they can somehow meet in the middle.”
Please keep in mind that, sadly, The Kimye Show is just a rumor at this point in time. You know it’s going to happen though, right? I hope you’ve already accepted that, because it doesn’t matter if it’s full of Kris Jenner‘s made up drama or full of Kim and Kanye‘s perfect love, it’s going to be a Very Big Deal. So just brace yourselves for that.
But you know, even though I understand that this show’s definitely going to happen, I still think it’s a little weird. It raises a few questions, doesn’t it? See, Kris Humphries married Kim, and they never got their own show. He was on Kourtney and Kim Take New York, but there was no spin-off. And yet there are already plans to create a show about Kim and Kanye, the couple who’s been dating for a few months? Is it just me, or did all those marriage rumors just get a little more realistic?

In news that makes me want to open a vein, Kanye West is allegedly angling for a judges position on this upcoming season of American Idol. Dear God in Live Television Hell.
Kanye West is negotiating with producers to become an “American Idol” judge … TMZ has learned.
Sources close to the production tell TMZ, “Idol” honchos reached out to Kanye recently about filling one of the open judging spots … and Kanye expressed interest.
But that doesn’t mean he’s on board — we’re told Yeezy is still unsure about accepting the gig. The way it was put to us … “He’s on the fence,” because he’s not sure if “A.I.” is in his wheelhouse.
And there’s another big hang up — cash. Informed sources tell TMZ … “Idol” would “at least match Mariah’s salary” — a cool $18 mil a year.
Now, see, I thought Mariah Carey was bad. And then I heard that Nicki Minaj was a good possibility for the show, which made me cringe all over again. And now Kanye? What, are they trying to make sure that the new season’s cast is comprised of the most obnoxious characters in today’s pop culture? All they need is Kim Kardashian (who’ll be there in spirit, and often in a physical presence if Kanye’s on board), Jennifer Aniston, Justin Bieber, Lea Michele, Snooki, and Will Smith rapping the ‘Fresh Prince’ again, and American Idol‘s producers have a veritable cornucopia of things that make me want to jam a hot poker in both of my eyes simultaneously.
And that kind of timing takes talent, guys. Believe it.

Remember that Kanye song called “Theraflu” that had that little part about how he fell in love with Kim Kardashian when she fell in love with Kris Humphries, and how he could get Kris fired from his beloved basketball team? He had to change the name of the song to “Cold,” because the real Theraflu was like “oh, no thank you,” but the sentiment is still the same.
But the video for the song was just released, and guys. Guys. Kim Kardashian is in it. Let me save you a lot of trouble and tell you to just skip ahead to the five minute mark and just wait, because she’s only there for a hot second, but it’s a really bitchy hot second, and it’s totally worth seeing. Be warned though, that if you just woke up about fifteen minutes ago and you didn’t sleep well because you thought monster hands were trying to grab you through your bedroom window, it could scare you a little. I speak from personal experience.

“I mean … if that man feel like she perfect, then she’s perfect. He could mean it and you’ll end up singing the words to it because he’s Kanye. You know how it is? One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
And all I can say is BWAHAHAHAHAHA. Oh, and BWAHAHAHHAHAHHHAHAHAH!
I’m sorry. Pretty much just what Fitty said, because there’s just no way of saying it any better.

Because who needs birth control when you’ve got a soulmate, right?
From In Touch via Celebitchy:
Kim Kardashian’s red-hot romance with Kanye West is moving so fast, she’s already gone off birth control.
“Kim is ready to have babies and talks about it all the time,” reveals a Kardashian insider. Since she’s been on the pull for around 15 years, reports another source, Kim is taking “the necessary measures” to make it easier to conceive.
Now Kim and Kanye are looking for a house with a nursery, shares the source, who says, “It’s doubtful they will get married, but they are actively trying to have a baby. All their friends and family know.”
Not everyone’s ruling out a wedding too. “Kim has told both her sisters and close friends that they shouldn’t be surprised if she and Kanye elope,” says the insider.
I really think Kim keeps forgetting that she’s still married. I don’t think she “forgets,” like “oh, whatever, I don’t even remember that asshole,” I think she really and truly forgets that she is still legally someone’s wife. That’s why there’s been all this talk about Kim and Kanye getting engaged and getting married and eloping, which, by the way, I definitely believe. Kim is just that dumb.
And I believe this story about the birth control too. There was this episode of Kourtney and Kim Take New York where Kim happened to run out of her birth control pills about five seconds after she and Kris got married. She kept saying “I think this is a sign that I need to stop taking them,” and Kris was like “uhhhh….” Kim just wants a husband and babies, and Kris was dumb enough to follow through with the first part, but he was smart enough to want to think that last part through a little more. But is Kanye that smart? I’m not sure. I think he really did find his perfect bitch, and he’d do anything to make her happy. Even impregnate her.
Furthermore, I think that when they finally have a baby, they will actually name it Kimye. And who doesn’t want to see that?
