Kanye West went on an interminable 20-minute rant onstage at the Wireless Festival in London on Friday night, and during that time he said some crazy ass shit. Sure, he pronounced his long-standing love for Kim Kardashian and claimed that he’s being discriminated against in the fashion industry, but know what else he did? Complain about fame to the point of comparing paparazzi photos to being raped. You know, totally the same thing!
From The Independent:
“I want to bring my family to the movies without 30 motherfuckers following me. Everybody here, they like sex right? Sex is great when you and your partner are like, ‘Hey, this is what we both want to do’.
“But if one of those people don’t want to do that, what is that called? That’s called rape. That is called violation.”
“So if I walk around and say look sir, I’m not feeling so good today, I need some space, can you please not fuck with me today? I need cut-off space, not violation.”
West said that he would “stop every paparazzi one by one” if he wasn’t on probation, adding: “One week I told a paparazzi, ‘Stop talking to me – I might be thinking of something like a new stage show, a new design. You want to shove a camera in my face, you just fucked up my whole trail of thought.”
Zzzzzzzz… I’m so fucking bored of this guy. If Kanye had ever ACTUALLY been raped, I guarantee you he’d be begging for paparazzi to take photos of him in exchange for erasing that experience from his life. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME THING. No one is physically touching you or violating your body, no one is scarring you for life, no one is overpowering you. You can’t bear paparazzi being in your face? Get a fucking clue – move out of Los Angeles, get a farm in Nebraska or some shit and stay out of the limelight. Don’t marry someone whose entire existence revolves around the paparazzi and being seen and photographed by them 24 hours a day. Fuck off, man.
Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, he went on a SECOND rant on Saturday night on stage – that one, however, only lasted 5 minutes. Apparently the crowd started chanting “We want Drake!” during his bullshit. Poor Drake, however, had to cancel because he’s ill and resting on doctor’s order.

Taylor Swift has a massive Rhode Island mansion, so it’s only natural that it’d serve as the location of her celebrity-filled 4th of July celebration over the weekend. Taylor hosted a slew of celeb friends, from Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield to the awful (and puzzlingly out of place) Lena Dunham, among others. Jaime King and Jessica Szohr were there, too, as was Ingrid Michaelson. And of course, it was all documented on Instagram.
Because I’m currently in the UK, I missed out on my Independence Day celebrations. And by “celebrations”, I mean “BBQ” because I love shit cooked on a grill. Hot dogs aren’t really a big thing over here, and that saddens me greatly. I suppose I’ll have to live vicariously through TSwift for now.

Miley Cyrus should probably be banned from contact with animals for life, considering every dog she owns dies young or gets abandoned quickly after she takes it in/buys it/however she gets it. Remember her 2-year-old Alaskan Klee Kai called Floyd that died seemingly out of nowhere? (And that’s not even mentioning Lila, another of her dogs that died.) Several more dogs have come and gone since then, and she even very recently got a new puppy called Emu Coyne Cyrus, but Floyd has apparently not been forgotten.
Miley, Wayne Coyne from The Flaming Lips and some other randoms got a tattoo this weekend at an LA house party in memory of Floyd and I really don’t get what’s happening. As in, why the hell is Wayne Coyne so into hanging out with Miley (to the point where her new dog’s middle name is named after him and he’s getting a tattoo for her dead dog that he never met?), why are her friends getting tattoos for a dead dog they never owned, why is she still sticking her tongue out when I thought she was retiring that move…. the questions go on and on.
If you want to see this thing up close and personal, here ya go:
Here are some more photos from this apparently wild event, which… okay, whatever.

I don’t know how many of you frequent Oh No They Didn’t, but it’s a great place for celeb news and absolute fucking mayhem when it comes to the big stars and their hardcore stans. It often devolves into gif wars and total nonsense, but sometimes some absolute gold comes out of it.
Take, for instance, the fact that ONTD posted a story on the fact that Lady Gaga posted a photo online claiming it was from one of her concerts, when actually it was from a big music festival. They were calling her out for doing it and they posted the story – as most sites do to promote traffic – on their Twitter account. Gaga, however, was too pressed to just keep quiet and for some reason brought Madonna‘s name into it, implying that it was Madonna stans who had posted the story to begin with to bring Gaga down.

I mean… why? I find it interesting that Madonna’s name was even mentioned. Clearly she’s that obsessed with the fact that she’s a cheap rip-off of Madonna who will never come close to her career longevity and legendary status, but like… okay. She just looks bitter and rather sad. Sorry your career is ending so quickly into it, Stefani, but please sit down.

Katy Perry is currently in the midst of her Prismatic World Tour, as I’m sure you know by now, and she decided to have a giant 4th of July shindig with her friends, band and crew at Walt Disney World and it looked like a lot of fun.
Basically, I’m really jealous and want to go to Disney World. Also, I really, really hate that hairdo she’s been sporting so much lately.

Joan Rivers is absolutely dreadful and a total asshole (sorry, no, she’s not funny) and makes a living off of offending people these days. It’s not cool, and clearly some people aren’t happy with the shit that comes out of her mouth – like, for instance, the fact that she used a transphobic slur when describing Michelle Obama this past week. So, during an interview on CNN, anchor Fredericka Whitfield called her out on it and told Joan that she and her Fashion Police co-stars are “very mean”.
That’s tame criticism, right? Not in Joan’s eyes! She got so pissed off, she retaliated and then walked out of the interview.
Joan does have a good point that like, a lot of the people she talks about are rich as hell and probably don’t care what Joan Rivers (who has had more plastic surgery procedures than there are surgeons to do them) has to say. And yes, we all talk shit about celebrities to our friends or family. However, I take issue with some of the more outlandishly hurtful shit she says. Some of it is outright disgusting and she tries to pass if off as humour, so I’m not with it. I do agree that anything can be funny, but it has to come from a good place, and she just seems more hateful than anything else.
