You know how Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian at that baseball field or whatever and used a Lana Del Rey song as part of his great production? Well, there have now been tabloid reports that Kanye wanted Lana to perform the song live but that she said no thanks. I could see why that would maybe be the case, but apparently it’s just not true!
“I would never deny his request. That’s not true.”
A woman of few words, that Lana Del Rey! Here’s a video of it in case you really needed to see it:
What do you think – did Lana actually refuse? Was she never asked? I’m going towards the latter on this one.

It’s a bit of a slow weekend when you’re reporting on Idris Elba having an asthma attack, but let’s just go with it. Basically, he was on his way to South Africa to promote his Nelson Mandela biopic (which I didn’t even know was a thing) when he got on the plane, but he was removed and hospitalised before the flight actually took off.
From Sky News:
Idris Elba, who plays the former president in Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, fell ill on a plane, but was taken off the aircraft before it left the UK.
The 41-year-old British actor missed a news conference in Johannesburg, but producers hope he will recover in time for a planned red carpet appearance on Sunday.
Elba, who is best known for his role as a detective chief inspector in the hit TV series Luther, stars alongside Skyfall actress Naomie Harris in the forthcoming film.
Damn, asthma! Unless it was something incredibly serious, though, he should be recovered in no time (and in fact he’s probably fine now) – hope so!

I generally don’t take Joan Rivers‘ opinion on anything seriously – besides maybe plastic surgery – so I’m not sure that her recent rant about Miley Cyrus will make many waves in Hollywood. However, she clearly felt she needed to lash out at the ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer, who Joan describes as “disgusting”. Well, that’s that.
From OK Mag:
”Enough! That girl is disgusting. She should know her audience, and her audience is 17-year-old girls! I would never have let [now 45-year-old daughter] Melissa go to a concert like that at 17 years of age.”
Well, that’s nice and all… I mean, listen – no one can deny that Miley is over the top and a total mess, but to call her disgusting seems like a bit of a low blow. Some of what she DOES I personally find unappealing, but Joan Rivers is just such a miserable old fucking cow now. It’s a shame, because while I never found her funny, I can recognise how revolutionary she was in the comedy world. There’s nothing funny about the shit she’s been running her mouth about in the past few years, and I think SHE is the disgusting one.
I never thought I’d be defending Miley Cyrus – and I’m not, really really – but seriously, shut up, Joan Rivers.

Some people have suggested that Lady GaGa and Katy Perry must be in some kind of rivalry because their singles were vying for the top spot in the charts at the same time and I guess because they’re both female pop stars. And while Katy has undeniably done way, WAY better than GaGa this time around, Katy wants to clear the air and let you all know that there’s no bad blood between them and there’s room enough for everyone in this here business of show.
From Entertainment Weekly:
“Gaga and I like to publicly dismiss it because it’s not healthy. You want to feel music. You want it to resonate and relate to you. You can’t look at it like a competition because you ruin the reason why you love music. But I think that sometimes our fan groups are so big and strong, they use it as ammunition.”
Well, no, what you mean to say is that Lady GaGa’s fans are absolutely fucking horrendous and probably the worst fans out there. You so much as note that Mother Monster had a bad day and they’re quick to tell you to get AIDS and die. Really lovely group of people, they are. KatyCats are bitches quite often, but they’re not going to wish death and destruction upon you.
Anyway, Katy, we’re not stupid – it’s not a competition if you’re clearly winning. Get it, girl.

Miley Cyrus feels like she’s Lil Kim inside to the point where she needed to dress up like her for Halloween. And while most of the world thought, you know, WTF is wrong with her? Why is this happening 15 years after the fact? Why won’t Miley accept her extreme whiteness?, Lil Kim thought it was awesome, especially since Miley is one of her besties. That leads me to ask one question: How many drugs is Lil Kim on these days?
From MTV News:
“How awesome was that! Put it this way, she did me very well. I think she looked gorgeous. I love her; she’s one of my besties,” she said. “She’s like my bestie-slash-wifey. You know what’s so funny? As soon as she tweeted the picture, she texted me and was like she was like, ‘Happy Halloween, babe!’ … I think she did me well.”
While you might end up seeing a lot of people dressing up like Miley from the 2013 VMAs, very few people are going to be able to pull off Kim’s vintage look the way Miley did. “She’s so outrageous. She’s fun. She’s gorgeous. She’s just living her life.”
Yes, Kim. We are all out here “living our lives”, you know. That’s not something that deserves praise (though sometimes it feels like it, amirite?).
Also, how often do you REALLY think these two talk? My guess is that Miley’s Happy Halloween message was the first and only text they’ve ever exchanged (if it even happened).

I swear to God, these two make me sick. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West haven’t shut up about just how elated they are about their engagement and how they wanna live in heaven together and brush each other’s fur coats or however they fill their time, but now they’re trying to claim that the video of their proposal that’s been everywhere online was actually “leaked”. Not only that, they’re trying to sue the co-founder of YouTube for it! Fuuuuuck off!
In the lawsuit … obtained by TMZ … their lawyer, Eric George, trashes Chad Hurley, the guy who co-founded YouTube and sold it to Google for $1.65 billion. Kim and Kanye claim Hurley is the one who schemed to post the video on his new Internet venture, MixBit.
K & K go for the jugular, saying Hurley was desperate to find a “second act,” after 2 flops following his YouTube sale. In the lawsuit, Kim and Kanye claim Hurley wasn’t even invited to AT&T Park in San Fran but manipulated his way in.
Kim and Kanye say they let him stay, but only after he signed a confidentiality agreement. And get this … they even got him to take a pic holding the signed confidentiality agreement, which is attached to the lawsuit.
The couple say, “Hurley proceeded to try to turn the event into one starring himself, broadcasting the images he knew were the exclusive property rights of someone else.”
Specifically, Kim and Kanye say he posted Kanye’s engagement proposal on MixBit and tweeted it to nearly a million followers. He then had the audacity to issue a press release, touting his video trophy.
Kim and Kanye are suing for unspecified damages … including punitives. Even though Kim and Kanye don’t say how much the video was worth, they mention it was destined for MC Cable Television, which is an arm of Bunim/Murray and E!, which produces and broadcasts “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
HAHAHA okay, so wait… the problem here isn’t that their private relationship moment was shared with the public when it was meant to be just for them… it’s that THEY wanted to make money off of it by selling it to E! Oh my God, you couldn’t WRITE better trash than this.
I don’t necessarily believe that the contract stipulated the privacy of this video – after all, Hurley is a professional and this wouldn’t be his first confidentiality agreement (and knowing how litigious Kimye are, why would he even bother pushing it?) but even if he was that stupid, kudos to him. Kimye are the fucking worst and need to be rocketed right off this planet, like, yesterday.
