Kanye West: The Musical

Two students at the University of Sydney (yes, that’s in Australia, people) are staging “Kanye: The Musical.” The hour-long piece premieres on September 5th and will follow Kanye West‘s rise from a beat writer for Jay-Z to becoming his Watch the Throne collaborator, with more than a few slips along the way. “I’m a big Kanye fan,” Phillip Roser said of his new show, in which he will play Kanye himself. Other characters include Kanye’s mom, Marc Jacobs, and “Spooky Dracula.” “I thought that a musical in his honor would be a lot of fun to put on. I really just meant the show to be something fun for my friends to see and I’m pretty excited by all the attention it’s been getting.” I predict that when Kanye gets wind of this, he’ll want to make a million few revisions. And then bring it to Broadway with himself in the lead role. [LA Times] Keep reading »

Adele And Kanye Remix “Melt My Heart To Stone”

Adele‘s “Melt My Heart To Stone” is one of those breakup songs that just tugs at your heartstrings. But the new Kanye West remix really takes the edge off. It’s not as good as his Katy Perry remix of “E.T.,” probably because there’s no lyrics like “Imma disrobe ya, then Imma probe ya.” Keep up the remixes of female pop stars, Kanye! Maybe one day we’ll get a Taylor Swift collab out of you. [DesiHits] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: MTV & VH1 Won’t Air Kanye’s “Monster” Video

  • Both MTV and VH1 agreed not to air Kanye West’s music video for “Monster,” which grotesquely eroticizes dead women, despite a new disclaimer about how it isn’t meant to be “misogynist.” I am sure he will find a way to write a song about how he’s been victimized by this. [Adios Barbie]
  • North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue vetoed an awful anti-abortion bill which would have required a woman seeking an abortion to wait 24 hours, receive counseling, and get an ultrasound before she could have the procedure. (Thanks, commenter LR52185, for the link.) [News-Observer]
  • Christine Lagarde, the finance minister of France, was selected to be the first-ever woman to run the International Monetary Fund today. She will replace Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who riddled the IMF with sex scandals and then was forced to step down after he was accused of sexually assaulting a New York City hotel maid. [NY Times]

Down With Martini Glasses!

I love martinis—stirred, not shaken—with olives, please! Something about the drink is so tangy and, boy, does it do the trick fast. But as much as I enjoy martinis, I almost never order them. Why? Because I have a vendetta against martini glasses. I mean, glasses are supposed to contain liquid, right? So why has one been designed with angled sides that allows for maximum sloshing with the simplest of movements? Whenever I have a martini glass in my hand, I end up cupping the cone in my palm and hanging on for dear life. Sometimes, I swear I don’t absorb the conversations I’m having because I’m so focused on not spilling. And usually, I do anyway.

So I am kind of pleased to hear that Kanye West might have the same aversion. Keep reading »

  • In addition to these cutie-patootie galoshes, Star magazine claims Suri Cruise, age four, has a pair of mini Louboutin heels and several pairs of Marc Jacobs shoes. Let that sink in for a sec. [DListed]
  • Sean Penn allegedly told Scarlett Johansson she better go back to college, take a political science course, and better educate herself if she’s going to speak out about politics. That’s so douchey! I’ve never heard ScarJo say anything dumb about politics. She reportedly got dumped by him, but I’d be willing to bet it was the other way around. [Celebitchy]
  • Kanye West may have defiled the maidenhood of an Olsen twin. Rumor has it he was seen canoodling Mary-Kate Olsen, who is the “bad” one. This would be the weirdest couple ever. [Stuff NZ]
  • “The Undefeated,” a pro-Sarah Palin documentary, is getting a nationwide release. But first it has some salty language in it that needs to be cleaned up first. What would a hockey mom say? [NYMag.com]

Kanye West’s “All Of The Lights” Video Is Out — Featuring Rihanna And Kid Cudi


Britney Spears who? The new music video I care about is Kanye West‘s “All Of The Lights,” a bittersweet love song about a nasty breakup, featuring Kid Cudi and Rihanna. I’m in love with the beginning and the end of the video where all the lyrics are lit up onscreen, but the middle is kinda meh. Kanye on top of a police car? Yawn. And is it just me or does Rihanna look like she’s bored and phoning it in with the sexy come-hither look? In any case, it’s an improvement on Kanye’s violent “Monster” music video with women’s severed heads everywhere. [YouTube] Keep reading »
