Growing up, I thought having my 8th birthday party at McDonald’s and playing in the ball pit was the SHIT and that I was living large. Turns out, that was nothing compared to the type of birthday parties North West, infamous 1-year-old daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, will be having. Despite being an infant who will never remember any of this, her parents threw her a “Kidchella”-themed shindig complete with carnival rides, food stands and Aunt Khloe in a controversial headdress (???).
From US Weekly:
In addition to the ferris wheel, there was a big bounce house for kids, as well as various food stands for lemonade, sno-cones, funnel cake, churros, and cotton candy.
“Kim was holding North a lot of the time, and the party seemed to be geared towards a little bit older kids,” an eyewitness tells Us Weekly. “But it was a family party with all ages, and no matter what age they were, they were having a great time. There was so much to do.”
Perhaps unsurprisingly, there are no actual photos of North West being at this party, so who knows if she even was? Either way, I think it’s pretty clear this was just an excuse for the adults to have fun rather than the kids. That’s okay, too, obviously – I love carnivals! – but why even bother to call it a birthday party?

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.

Kim Kardashian is in Cannes at the moment for the Cannes Lions International Creativity Festival or whatever the hell it’s called. If that seems like a disconnect – as in, why is Kim, who ostensibly has very little brain power, at an event which honours just that? No one knows, but she never misses a chance to put on a tight dress and have her picture taken, so here we are.
First of all, let’s discuss this dress. No shade on Kim because she’s got a great voluptuous shape (and that’s not even an underhanded compliment – I use voluptuous kindly), but this dress is horrendous. She looks like an encased sausage, and that’s not a good look on anyone. I want to like it! I like the colour, I like the intricate rope work, but it just doesn’t do anything for her.
‘I feel as though we’ll always be in the honeymoon period. We always say we really like to treat each other like it’s our birthday.
‘I try to treat him like it’s his birthday every single day. I think we’ll always be like that.
‘We always try to make life as fun and enjoyable as possible.
‘We do travel, and work really hard, when we’re together – and even when we’re apart, we’re always on the phone 24/7 – just trying to make that time as memorable as possible.’
I dunno, guys – I feel like their marriage actually MIGHT last. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: they’re just narcissistic enough for each other. Together, their egos can fill up every room in their mansion. If that’s not love, I don’t know what is.

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?

Kim Kardashian was doing a photoshoot in New York on Monday and instead of getting changed out of her cleavage-bearing attire before walking the streets – especially considering it was pretty hot and she was wearing a blazer – she took dem titties on a walkabout to make sure the paparazzi could get some good snaps.
I can’t wait to see how much therapy little North West needs once she comes of age and realizes who her parents really are and what they do for a living.

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.
