Kanye West has done the impossible: made himself look like a bigger tool than we already thought he was. Mr. West and on-again girlfriend Amber Rose wore these tack-tastic fur frocks to a Louis Vuitton fashion show in Paris. Never mind the fact that she looks like Chewbacca’s first cousin, he needs to meet the inside of a bucket of red paint. Eh, looks like Taylor Swift’s getting the last laugh.

Kanye West probably has a few New Year’s resolutions after his disastrous year of jerkiness, from snubbing Taylor Swift to generally being all about himself. His diva behavior can be traced back all the way to 2005, when at the Red Cross fundraiser for Hurricane Katrina, West made the controversial statement live on-air that, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” Some people applauded West for his words while others thought he was way out of line. Either way, it looks like the folks behind tonight’s “Hope for Haiti” telethon don’t want to take a chance on the rapper. They’ve taken the pre-emptive strike of banning West from the event.

Like a scared child, Kanye West fled the United States after his booze-induced outburst during the MTV Video Music Awards. Finally, a whopping four months later, he’s blaming his outburst on his love for the fashion industry.
“This is my first time back in America for the past three, four months. I love the game so much and I’m so passionate about it, that I can’t take (the stress). I’m so anxious, I’m getting anxiety, begging one of these fashion houses to hire me. I said, ‘If you acquire me, I could be a quiet me. Call it verbal dieting.’”
As the decade nears its end, one thing that will be missed is the music. Remember those albums we left on repeat because they really were worth listening to? From the catchy dance tracks to the political rock records that defined the 2000s, we saw artists like Justin Timberlake and Amy Winehouse grow up and deliver pinnacle records we never saw coming. When it came to the Top 40 set, this was a great time to love music. Here are our picks for the Top 10 Pop albums of the ’00s. Read more … Keep reading »
“No disrespect, but no Amber Rose for me. Everybody has their past. And don’t get me wrong, I’m not judgmental at all. But I do like a certain amount of class.”
–Omarion responds to rumors that he secretly married a bisexual stripper, like Kanye’s GF. But just so we’re clear, by “class” Omarion means “no” to bisexuality, but “yes” to pants sagged so low you can see his undies and butt crack.
My favorite “country” music singer, Taylor Swift, will be hosting and performing on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, and the promo pays tribute to the Kanye West debacle at the MTV Video Music Awards. Yes, this incident was rather amusing and ridiculous, but I’m gonna be a little annoyed if there are multiple references to it during Saturday’s show. A joke can only be funny so many times. (Oh, and Taylor, please sing “Tell Me Why.” I like that one.) Keep reading »
Yesterday, Louis Vuitton follower and fashionisto Kanye West let down his fans, er, again. It seems like forever ago that the rapper announced that he’d be putting out a fashion line called Pastelle, which he first mentioned in the song “Stronger”: “So go ‘head, go nuts, go ape s**t, ‘specially in my Pastelle…” Since then, Kanye’s rocked a few teasing pieces from the supposed collection, like a too-cool-for-school bomber jacket and a borderline corny teddy bear sweatshirt.

MTV deemed Jay-Z 2009′s Hottest MC in the Game, an annual online list, this week. Others on the list included Lil Wayne, Drake, and Kanye West. True to his form, Jay-Z wasn’t the least bit humble about his new title, but he also borrowed a little from Kanye when he said that Eminem deserved to be on the list because of his high album sales this year. Read Jay’s acceptance speech after the jump. Keep reading »
Live Nation has confirmed rumors that the Lady Gaga-Kanye West tour, “Fame Kills,” has been officially canceled. Gossip blog MediaTakeOut is reporting the decision was all Gaga — a probable fall-out from Kanye’s much-publicized VMA meltdown (though she was defending him as recently as a couple days ago). I’m not so sure, though — I can think of 10 other reasons these two would cancel a concert together… Keep reading »
