Kanye West let the world know that he isn’t a fan of Justin Timberlake‘s Suit & Tie collaboration with Jay-Z. It looks like Mr. Timberlake hit back with a subtle and smooth jab at dear Mr. West.
The Huffington Post (and many others) pointed out that during Mr. Timberlake’s performance of Suit & Tie last night on Saturday Night Live, he changed the line “Shit so sick got a hit and picked up a habit” to “My hit’s so sick got rappers acting dramatic.”
Nice job, Justin! A very classy dig. In terms of music though, I still prefer Kanye. Yeah, I went there. It’s Sunday, I don’t care.
And then picture Kanye’s reaction, which was probably something like this:
Kanye West has really felt the stigma of being a skirt-wearing rapper in the past, and now he thinks it’s gone beyond teasing and actually started to affect public opinion of him. After MTV released its Hottest MC In The Game list and placed Yeezy in a paltry 7th place, he rang up Hot 97 to put a stop to the madness and stand up against skirt-haters everywhere.
“I feel like in order for them to put me as number seven they had to bring up things they didn’t like. They didn’t like the Cruel Summer album. And I’m like, ‘That’s a compilation! It ain’t all rappers on G.O.O.D. Music!’”
“Possibly it could just be like overall rap MC swag, you know what I’m saying?” he said.
“What happens is with them, with these type of judges and people who review it, when you come in, I have the pink polo and the backpack, then I’m checking all the boxes – that Tribe Called Quest era and J Dilla and all that, you know, so they want to champion it.
“They don’t like Givenchy Kanye. They don’t like Kanye in a kilt. They don’t like Kanye in a relationship [with Kim Kardashian].”
Maybe they just don’t like Kanye, full stop. Ever think of that one? I think Kanye is a great producer and has had some really good music, but also, there’s nothing worse than a sore loser who feels the need to publicly comment on losing by making excuses for why he didn’t land in the number one spot. Newsflash: it’s not because of the kilt, and probably not because you knocked up Kim K, either. Most likely it’s just because you were at the top of your game in 2006 and now, in 2013, you’ve got some serious competition and need to step up your game.
Well, it’s a good thing Kim Kardashian has found some comfortable maternity pants, because if Kanye West has anything to do with it, she’ll need to wear them for at least 54 months of her life as she gives birth to the six children he wants.
She hasn’t even given birth to his first child yet, but Kanye West’s told girlfriend Kim Kardashian that he wants six kids!
A source tells Now the rapper, 35, is determined to have a family ‘as big as Kim’s’.
‘Kanye grew up as an only child and the Kardashians have been a revelation to him,’ says our insider.
‘He wants his kid to have loads of siblings, so he’s told Kim not to get cosy with just one baby.
‘He’d like them to keep making babies until they have at least six.’
However, pals are worried Kim, 32, who’s four months gone, won’t be able to cope with five more pregnancies.
‘He’s scared the hell out of her,’ says our source.
‘She’s already terrified of what’s happening to her body.
‘Kanye doesn’t care and he’s doing everything in his power to convince her that he’ll love her no matter what her body looks like.’
LOL, I love the idea of Kim being “terrified” by pregnancy. She doesn’t even have the first one out and he already wants to knock her up with five more! The sad part is, she totally seems like the type to go through with it to keep him happy. Plus, let’s be honest, they have so much money between them that she can pop them out and hand them off to hired help.
Lord, give me strength. Kim Kardashian‘s reserves of stupid shit to say to reporters must be hitting an all-time low as she’s been coming out with some real clunkers lately. If possible, I think being pregnant with Kanye‘s baby has dulled what was left of her brain cells, as now she’s talking about how wearing maternity clothes makes her feel like who she was before getting knocked up. I don’t even know.
From her “Mommy Blog” (Kill me now!):
Hi guys! So I love sharing my favorite products and beauty and fashion tips with you all and I wanted to do my first mommy blog today to tell you about these new J Brand jeans I received. They are these super comfy maternity jeans with soft, stretchy side panels in the front and they are absolutely amazing! I feel like I’m back to my old self and I’m so happy! With this being my first pregnancy I’ve been finding it really difficult to find clothes that are comfortable and fit me well, but these are great. Are there any other moms to be out there who have tried these? I’d love to hear you pregnancy tips too!! :-) Xo
So, basically you stopped wearing clothes that were 10x too small for you and got… maternity clothes. For pregnant people like yourself. Listen, we’re all about feminism here and women can wear whatever they want, whenever they want, but I love how it was a mindblowing experience to discover that she didn’t have to squeeze herself into skinny jeans and chiffon button-down tops and could actually go for an elastic waist. Hell, I’m not even pregnant and I choose an elastic waist for the majority of the week (hell yeah, leggings!).
It’s also a shame that Kim has to solicit “pregnancy tips” which to most humans is just “common sense”. Maybe someone should make sure to tell her to take prenatal vitamins and eat lots of fruits and vegetables so her unborn baby gets as much nutrition as possible. While we’re offering tips, let her know she’ll need to buy diapers, which will need to be changed when the little one takes a shit. Good lord.
There is no story to go with the photo above. Well, there is, and this is it: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West felt it necessary to get naked and simulate sex for the cover of the French magazine L’Officiel Homme. I just can’t with this chick. But whatever, if you think your future kid is gonna love seeing her parents riding each other on a magazine cover, more power to you. So much for learning the value of privacy.
But wait, here’s something fun! In another interview (this one with Cosmopolitan), Kim has the nerve to say that she judged her sister Kourtney Kardashian for getting pregnant with Scott Disick‘s baby without being married to him.
“I was like, ‘You’re not married! How could you do this?’ I was really firm and strict. But she was like, ‘Marriage isn’t what I want.’ And later, I realized she had a better family life than I did.”
Let that sink in for a minute. The woman who has had a public sex tape, can’t seem to keep her clothes on and is also now pregnant out of wedlock before even completing her divorce from her first sham marriage has the nerve to judge her sister for… being with the same bro for plenty of years and having a stable family environment. I mean, I doubt Kourtney Kardashian is the model mother and Scott’s last name should be Dick rather than Disick, but come on.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are having a baby girl. And Kim Kardashian wore an atrocious outfit. Of the baby girl, they are “over the moon.” Why is that the go-to phrase for everyone about pregnancy? A source also told US Weekly, “Kanye always wanted a girl.” Cool story, bro.
Gotta say, Kardashian gave a quote about being pregnant to Du Jour magazine that I thought was genuinely hilarious.
I used to always say I can’t wait to get pregnant because I will just eat whatever I want, but it’s completely different. I’m like, OK, I want to eat as healthy as possible. Though lately I’ve been watching shows like I’m Pregnant and Addicted to Meth. It definitely makes me feel better if I’m wanting one sip of Diet Coke or, you know, too much sugar. I’m like, This woman is on meth.
So true, Kim. It’s all about perspective.
The point of this story is that Kim Kardashian is retiring from reality TV in its various incarnations – Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, Get the Kardashians Off My F-cking TV Already, etc. After five years, she wants to use being knocked up as a turning point and stop living her life in front of the camera… but only because Kanye West pointed out the concept of “privacy” to her.
From to DuJour magazine:
“My boyfriend has taught me a lot about privacy. I’m ready to be a little less open about some things, like my relationships. I’m realizing everyone doesn’t need to know everything.”
“When you live your life so publicly, like on a reality show, people assume that they know every side of you already,” she adds. “But they always want more.”
Not only does everyone not need to know everything, we also don’t want to. I can count on zero hands how many people I know who actually give a shit about the Kardashians and what they’re doing in life. I’ll “watch” (read: zone out to) one of their shows if they’re on, but I never absorb any information, most likely because there’s none to absorb. They’re a family with too much money and not enough brains, but they’ve learned how to turn that into even more money, so good for them.
In any case, how hilarious that Kanye is responsible for telling Kim to cool it with sharing her entire life with the general public, and that it never occurred to her before now. I suppose it’s never too late for a little common sense, and lucky for us, the Kardashians’ various TV shows probably won’t last much longer once Kim goes. Every cloud has a silver lining, people.
