This is my life: after every major awards show, I lie awake contemplating my feelings toward Taylor Swift. What we have is a love/hate relationship of epic proportions, that leaves me fighting an inner battle every time I see her on television. Do I cheer? Hiss? Pre-order her next album? Most of the time I just watch her with awe, annoyed that I’m so compelled by someone who bothers me so much. But she’s not the only celebrity who leaves me with conflicted feelings. Here’s a whole gaggle of stars we love to hate (and hate to love).
On Sunday night, about four months after it was filmed, the much ballyhooed Kim and Kanye engagement episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” aired. While little teasers of the engagement were quick to leak onto the internet back in late-October, E! naturally had the full film rights to the big moment, which was just as over-the-top as has been described. And, dare I say it, it was actually kind of romantic too. I can’t imagine what Kanye and Kim talk about when they’re alone together, besides complimenting the other on their beauty/brilliance, but they seem as in love as two completely self-obsessed people could possibly be. Aww?
I love each and every song on Beyonce’s recent self-titled album, but I have a special soft spot for “Drunk In Love,” her collab with husband Jay Z. I mean, it’s sexy, fun to dance to and hilarious. Surfboart? “Graining on that wood”? “Her breasteses are my breakfastes”? While the song is perfect as is, that didn’t stop Kanye West from trying to make it better by remixing the song with some of his own lyrical flourishes.

From “The Bachelor” to a dog’s butthole, the likeness of Jesus has appeared to believers in all sorts of crazy places. The Lord must be tired of projecting his image onto Cheetoh’s and Walmart receipts because the latest reported vision is not of Jesus, but of Yeezus. This woman’s photo popped up on Reddit this week. Well, I’ll be damned if her kneecap isn’t the spitting image of Kanye West. [Jezebel]
Kim Kardashian is stepping up her Instagram photography game in 2014 with some symbolism. In this photo posted yesterday, captioned, “It was an amazing year!!!,” one can see that Kim is referring to two recent developments of the past year: her baby and her engagement to Kanye West. She probably didn’t mean to draw comparisons between the size of her engagement ring and the size of her human child’s fist, but then again, she probably did. Disappointingly, it looks like Kim was unable to find a fitting symbol for her divorce from Kris Humphries, which also just happened in 2013. Maybe North will grow up to be a basketball player. Wouldn’t that be something?
So, 2013 will be remembered by many as the year Kanye West did a lot of talking. Specifically, talking shit — about Nike, about the fashion industry, about the Grammys, you name it. But 2014 is going to be different. Because Yeezy is going into the new year with a resolution: ”Everything I’m saying that’s not allowed, soak it in right now,” West told the crowd at his last Yeezy Tour show last Monday. “This might be the last time y’all hear me talk shit for a long time. Might be another, like, six months. At least. You’re just gonna have to run back the interviews and shit if you wanna hear some realness.” Naturally, since it’s still 2013, this vow to stop talking shit was an epic 27 minutes long. You can watch the whole thing above, or just sit tight and wait for Ye to break his New Year’s resolution, just like the rest of us do, year after year.
But is it ugly? Yesterday, Kim and Kanye were photographed doing a little post-holiday shopping, with Kim carrying her Christmas gift from Kanye on her arm. She posted a close-up photo of the classic Hermes Birkin bag to Instagram, which was apparently hand-painted by the artist George Condo. (Condo worked with Yeezy on the visuals for his album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy back in 2010.) The painting depicts three monster-faced people having sex with a nude woman. A one of a kind, very special gift indeed … get a closer look after the jump and then discuss! [Photo: Splash News] Keep reading »
