Kanye West featuring Paul McCartney – ‘Only One’

kanye west north west only one

Even though Kanye West is a bit unstable, you have to admit the guy has some pretty impressive chops when it comes to music (or maybe you don’t have to admit it – whatever, it’s a free country). I’ve been on board for pretty much everything the guy has done, musically speaking – 808s and Heartbreaks is still one of the best, most underrated albums – but I don’t know if I can get on board with this.

Basically, Kanye wrote ‘Only One’ since he felt like it was his late mother’s way of speaking through him to his daughter, North West. The song is… not great, and some of the vocal effects are so distracting that it’s hard to get at that deep meaning, but I suppose it is there. I don’t know why Paul McCartney is involved with this, either, but he’s a bit messy himself these days, so… yeah.

Half the song is Kanye singing ‘Tell Nori about me’ over and over again, there’s a little Wurlitzer interlude, etc. It’s a bit too all over the place for me, this one. What do you guys think? And Happy New Year, by the way!

Jada Pinkett Smith is looking pretty good, eh?

There’s not really too much to say about this one, but we can all take a second to appreciate the fact that Jada Pinkett-Smith is totally ~in shape~ and killing the fitness game. In her new cover shoot for Shape (aptly titled), Jada reveals that she runs up her apartment building’s 34 flights of stairs for exercise and that she does lots of reps with lighter weights to tone rather than lifting heavier weights. Cool beans.

Also, no Smith family interview would be complete without some insanity, so here ya go:

‘Will and I were just reading The Tao of Physics by Fritjof Capra together and having long discussions about it. We love books about religion and spiritual expression.

‘It’s a big turn on for me to be spiritually and intellectually challenged by Will. To me, it’s like foreplay.

‘Of course, I enjoy that I have sex in my relationship, but I think this other intellectual aspect is quite unique and something that strongly connects us.’

I bet – especially considering both of you are rumoured to have… other preferences. Ahem.

Anyhoo, Jada’s body seems to run in the family – look at her mom!

Jeremy Renner’s wife wants a divorce already

jeremy renner sonni pacheco

The last we reported on Jeremy Renner, he was having a baby with his ex-girlfriend, Sonni Pacheco. That was all the way back in 2013, and since then, he actually married her. I’m sure it was true love that was meant to last forever, right? Well, incidentally, Sonni wants out of the marriage less than a year after it started. Uh oh!

From TMZ:

According to docs filed earlier this month, Renner’s wife Sonni Pacheco is seeking the split over irreconcilable differences — but get this … she’s demanding he return her stolen passport, birth certificate and SS card.

The couple just copped to their secret marriage back in September … and every indication is the break-up will be nasty.

In her divorce docs … Pacheco says they have a prenup, but adds it should be torn up because it was based on fraud. There’s no further detail about what she means by “fraud.”

Pacheco wants the moon … she’s asking for spousal support and physical custody of their 1-year-old daughter, Ava Berlin. She’s also looking to use the Range Rover until the smoke clears, and for Renner to pony up her rent and moving expenses.

Huh, well that seems a bit crazy. Where the hell is the girl’s passport, birth certificate and social security card? What’s the “fraud” situation all about? What’s with Jeremy Renner’s hair… like, seriously? So many unanswered questions…

Kylie Jenner hates her new puppy

Kylie Jenner was all hype and feeling “#blessed” when she got a new pet greyhound for Christmas. However, the charm has already worn off and apparently Kylie hates her pup, whose name is Norman, because having to take care of it is cutting into her clubbing time. Instead, she’s been pawning the dog off on her sisters so she can hit the town… how, I’m not sure, since she’s not even 18 yet.

Anyhoo, here’s the scoop from Radar Online:

“Kylie just got this dog for Christmas and she is already pawning him off on her sisters so that she can go out,” the insider says.

According to the source, the 17-year-old star of Keeping up with the Kardashians even “got upset that she couldn’t go out one night because she had to stay home with him.”

“Her family thinks that it was a really bad call to get her this dog because she can barely take care of herself,” the source tells Radar. “But she insisted that she have it.”

“Sometimes having a dog can actually make someone more responsible and they are hoping that this is the case,” the source says.

“Hopefully she does not treat him like Kim treats her animals,” the insider adds. As Radar reported, the Kardashians have had several animals over the years whose time with the family has been short-lived.

Yo, when will people realize that pets are a COMMITMENT, not a one-time Christmas gift that’s fun for the day and that you can just ignore afterwards. Getting a dog is a serious responsibility and it’s so sad that this dog is going to end up neglected and then sent to the shelter because these idiots can’t be bothered to look after it.

Also, I really want to know what the hell Kim has done to animals! That shit sounds ominous.

Anyhoo, while a lot of this might be made up by Radar interns, I think we can all agree that it’s likely true – especially considering Khloe already posted a photo of her time “puppy sitting”… less than a week after Kylie got the poor dog. In fact, it was the VERY NEXT DAY.

Puppy sitting ????????????

Did Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney get engaged this Christmas?

It’s the question no one everyone’s desperate to find out the answer to: did Lady Gaga and longtime boyfriend Taylor Kinney get engaged this Christmas? Every fucker else seems to have done, so why not Gaga? There’s nothing official, but wedding bells have been ringing for these two all this year, and Gaga was playing coy about a possible engagement all the way back in April on the Howard Stern Show, so… it could be happening!

Here’s what we do know: on Christmas Day, Gaga tweeted the following:

And that’s… it. That’s all we’ve got, folks. In Touch Weekly seems to think they’ve got engaged, as well, though I realize that’s not really adding much credibility to the story. Only time will tell, Little Monsters. Only time will tell.

Kaley Cuoco: ‘I’m not a feminist; I love serving my husband’

kaley cuoco

I don’t really know where to begin with this one, as it’s a bit of a doozy. Is it annoying that any time a female celebrity sits down to do an interview, they’re asked if they consider themselves a feminist? Sure, of course it is – particularly because men should be asked the same damn question (moreso than women, I’d say) and second of all because you’d think, duh, if you’re a woman, you’ve obviously got to be a feminist if you have a brain in your head that works, right? I suppose Kaley Cuoco is the exception to that rule, however, because she wouldn’t call herself a feminist at all – after all, she loves serving her husband, Ryan Sweeting.

Here’s what she had to say when Redbook asked her if she’s a feminist:

“Is it bad if I say no? It’s not really something I think about. Things are different now, and I know a lot of the work that paved the way for women happened before I was around… I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that’s because I’ve never faced inequality. I cook for Ryan five nights a week: it makes me feel like a housewife; I love that. I know it sounds old-fashioned, but I like the idea of women taking care of their men. I’m so in control of work that I like coming home and serving him. My mom was like that, so I think it kind of rubbed off.”

Ugh, this is a toughie. Firstly, being a real feminist means that I kinda have to accept the fact that she doesn’t consider herself one. Also, feminism means a woman chooses what she wants to do, so if Kaley wants to “serve” her man, then that’s just fine and dandy. Live your life, girl.

On the other hand, how ignorant is this chick? Like, “I was never that feminist girl demanding equality”? Uh… at least she has the sense to realize that she’s pretty fucking privileged, considering she’s a white girl with blonde hair from an upper class family – what equality did she need to demand? It’s a privilege that she doesn’t have to think about it, but just because something hasn’t touched you personally (that she realizes – it only hasn’t touched her BECAUSE so many people have fought for her right to ignorance) doesn’t mean you can’t still support it. I’m privileged because I’m white, middle class, American, etc – it doesn’t mean I don’t empathize with those outside of that bracket.

I’m always baffled but the extreme stupidity of people, but it is Kaley Cuoco we’re talking about here, so I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised. No wonder she hates the sound of her own voice. I’m with her on that one, and I’m only reading it in print.

Jamie Lynn Spears pulls a massive knife on a crowd of people

jamie lynn spears

Y’all didn’t think Jamie Lynn Spears had that hardcore edge, did you? She straight up pulled out a giant knife in a crowd of people at the Pita Pit in Louisiana last week – how crazy is that? Of course, it’s not what you think – Jamie Lynn was actually trying to break up a fight that broke out between a patron and the friend she was with. Oh, snap!

From TMZ:

The violence broke out last weekend at the Pita Pit in Hammond, Louisiana — Jamie Lynn Spears and a friend had made a late night stop for food, when … according to sources close to Jamie … someone attacked her friend.

Cops tell us Jamie’s friend got clocked with a bottle. That’s when Jamie went all “Saving Private Ryan” … dragging her friend to safety. Our Spears sources say Jamie pulled her behind the sandwich counter — then grabbed a long serrated bread knife and started waving it around to stop the fight.

We’re told that did the job. Police showed up, but Jamie’s friend didn’t want to press charges … so no one got arrested.

NICE. I love it! A serrated bread knife! I can’t help but wonder if Britney would have been so proactive in such a situation – I feel like probably not. The photo above is from earlier in the night, by the way – looked pretty calm up until then!
