So, this week on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Jimmy made a little fun of a recent Kanye West interview the rapper did with BBC Radio One. After showing some of the clips from the interview, Kimmel had children act out the interview, you know, to illustrate how ridiculous Kanye sounds.
Kanye was not having it. He spent yesterday evening tweeting his distaste for Kimmel IN ALL CAPS. Keep reading »
Is this really happening? After all of this time, and all of Anna Wintour‘s reported efforts — discouraging Kanye West from attending the Met Ball with Kim on his arm, refusing to deign to Yeezus’ request that North’s official unveiling come by way of a Vogue cover — is Kim Kardashian finally finding herself embraced, or at least tolerated, by the fashion industry’s inner circle?
Considering the sex tape/reality TV star landed the newest cover of Carine Roitfeld‘s biannual editorial tome CR Fashion Book, all signs point to … maybe. Carine famously fell out with Wintour in 2010, which resulted in her ousting from the editor-in-chief position at Vogue Paris, so to suggest that Kim has at long last ingratiated herself with the Vogue crowd would be a bit of a stretch. Still, the photos, shot while Kim was almost nine months pregnant, are nothing to shrug at — they were art-directed by close Kanye (and Carine) compadre Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy, and who worked the camera but Karl Lagerfeld himself? Not bad, Kim, not bad. Kanye’s infamous Tweet, forever memorialized on this holy grail of T-shirts, is starting to make that much more sense.
And the grills are just the beginning — check out the rest of the spread, including, yes, the belly shot, after the jump. [Celebuzz; WWD] Keep reading »
People are always trying to make money in this world, so it’s not a surprise in any way, shape or form that the photographer who got into a scuffle with Kanye West at LAX last month is trying to sue. Daniel Ramos has filed a lawsuit against Yeezus with charges of assault, battery, negligence and interference with the exercise of civil rights and he wants to be paid big time for it. Also, he wants the case to have a jury trial. What’s with these yahoos? Read more at Evil Beet Gossip…
Kanye West appeared on Kris Jenner’s new talk show, “Kris,” this morning and gave the world its first look at daughter North — finally, amiright? But far more interesting to me was the odd rapport between Kanye and his maybe-someday future-mother-in-law, who the tabloids have long suggested don’t get along. Now Kanye, Kim and Nori (as she’s called) are living under Jenner’s roof and things are, they promise, just hunky dory! My favorite part of the hour-long interview was the how-fuck-ness of Kanye going on and on about how much he hates the paparazzi, while Kris nods her head all understanding-like, even though she is the biggest damn fame pimp Hollywood ever did see. Best quote? At the tail end of discussing how their families, aka brands, have merged Kanye says: “There’s only one brand now and it’s family.” Aww?
