Well, this is awkward. I guess getting your ass and tits out on Instagram has magical powers on a man, because Kanye West has decided to put a ring on Kim Kardashian‘s finger and now they’re engaged to be married. What made him propose? Was it Kanye’s birthday gift for Kim? Did he receive a personal message from Jesus? Who can say?
Kanye popped the question at San Francisco’s AT&T Park yesterday, which he rented out just for the occasion. This whole thing is SO over the top and ridiculous, but here we go…
From E! Online:
Before popping the question at San Francisco’s AT&T Park, which he rented out for the occasion, he asked future mother-in-law Kris Jenner for her daughter’s hand in marriage.
That part obviously went well.
Having secured the go-ahead from the Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch, he got down on one knee and proposed to Kim with a flawless 15-carat diamond ring by celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz.
Aiding in his effort was the field’s jumbo screen, which flashed the sign, “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!”
I’m crying laughing. Leave it to Kanye to do any of this, but especially to play his OWN music. The roman candles and fireworks were a nice touch, though.
Right, let’s get a pool going for a) whether this wedding is even going to happen (of course it is – these two wouldn’t miss out on such a huge opportunity for publicity) and b) how long it’s actually gonna last. I think they’ll get past the 72 day mark, but probably just because they’re rarely together.

Kim Kardashian posted an ass selfie that sent twitter a’twittering. By “ass selfie” I mean that it was a photo she took of her impressive backside. She added “#nofilter” and made it seem like it was a very casual, “Oh just postin’ a photo of my ass, NBD.” Kanye then reweeted it, adding “HEADING HOME NOW”.
Well, it turns out there was a whole plan behind (no pun intended) the ass-selfie, if sources are to believed, and I believe them because it’s the Kardashians. Everything they do is carefully timed publicity. They were the ones to release the first photo of their kid, which they did via social media. Here’s what insiders told Life & Style about Kim’s selfie, via Daily Mail:
Insiders say after weeks of working hard on her figure, the mother-of-one wanted to make sure that her perfect angles were captured and in the very best possible light.
‘She took so many pictures and deleted them before she and Kanye decided on the one she posted,’ an insider tells the publication. ‘He had the ultimate say about Kim putting up the picture and decided which one he liked best.’
The whole stunt was apparently made to appear that Kim had just merely decided to post a snap from a photo shoot.
[...] ’Kim was dying to get her picture taken in a bathing suit,’ the insider told the magazine.
I freakin’ love this. It’s as complicated as Nicolas Cage’s plan to steal the Declaration of Independence. Pathetic.

Kim Kardashian gave birth to Kanye West‘s baby a few months ago, and while generally, the mother an adorable new baby like North West would be spending all her time playing and bonding with her daughter, enjoying motherhood and setting a great example, Kim has resorted to her old ways by getting her ass out and posting a selfie of it on Instagram with the hashtag #nofilter.
Girl, we’re super glad you got your ~pre-baby body~ back and feel confident wearing a white bathing suit thing that barely covers your tits and is getting swallowed by your ass. We’re even glad that you seem to love yourself so much despite all the negative criticism you received about your body when you were pregnant. Those are all great things for any woman… but REALLY? You’re someone’s mother now and the first thing you think to do is to strip down like you’re on the pages of some men’s magazine to show your ass? Dear God.
I know this might sounds a bit slut shame-y, and it’s not meant that way. I think women should use their bodies however they want and be proud of them… but I also think there’s a time and a place and Kim clearly feels she’s not worth anything more than putting half naked pictures on the Internet for the world to ogle at (and lots of creeps to fap over). SMH, SMH.

Kris Humphries bought Kim Kardashian a $2 million engagement ring, and while he didn’t get nearly all of that back, he got a lot more than estimated. The ring went up for auction at Christie’s, and was (according to The Daily News), “valued at between $300,000 and $500,000″ (Daily News). So how much did he get?
Dude got $749,000 for this ugly-ass ring:
I think Lauren Conrad’s engagement ring is about a bajillion times nicer.
Kris and Kim were married for 72 days. Never forget.

North West, Kim and Kanye‘s daughter, made her debut on Instagram today. Oh don’t worry, she didn’t get her own account, although that would be hilariously nauseating. No, Kim just posted a photo of her on her own account (@kimkardashian) all swaddled up (above). Man, physically that kid really is the perfect combo of both her parents, isn’t she? I bet she’s kicking it in a fur blanket sent by Lanvin or something.
So far the only photos we’ve seen of baby North have come directly from the Kardashian/Kanye empire. But I would be surprised if a huge People photospread didn’t happen anyway. They’re probably holding out for Vanity Fair. Good luck with that.
