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 »
As I mentioned in Quickies, the Kardashians had a big ol’ Christmas party, complete with a photo booth that made everyone look like they were made out of wax. At first when I saw this pic of Kim and Kanye, I was like, “Well, they forgot one very important thing — blotting papers.” But upon further inspection, I’ve concluded that patch of shine between Kanye’s eyebrows is not a Christmas tree, but the pyramid representing the Illuminati. Stare at it too long, and you’re under its spell. So be careful.
