A dishy new biography of Lady Gaga claims she crash diets, fooled around with one of her producers, and refused to tour with Kanye West after his 2009 VMAs meltdown.
Gaga was hospitalized six times during 2009 for eating-disordered behavior, claims her former tour manager David Ciemny in Poker Face: The Rise and Rise of Lady Gaga, by Maureen Callahan. Ciemny claims Gaga made herself “physically and mentally … sick” trying to fit into her costumes, binging on only junk food and once losing 20 lbs. right-quick to fit into a crazy get-up.
The book, which releases tomorrow, also claims not-so-surprisingly that Lady Gaga’s wackadoodle image was constructed because the music industry didn’t think she was conventionally attractive enough to garner attention. Harsh! Keep reading »
For those who noted that Kanye is actually 33 now, not “32 and still an innocent” as Swift sings in her lyrics, she’s referring to his age at the time of his infamous “imma let ya finish” speech. Kanye, for his part, tweeted after the performance, “Yes I was that guy. A 32 year old child.” Some humility. Finally. Can we stop talking about this now? Keep reading »
Kanye West is still trying to atone for embarrassing Taylor Swift at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards. So much so, that he not only continues to tweet apologies for his ego-driven childish antics, but he also wrote a song for Taylor. He says it’s a “beautiful” song and he wants her to have it. Wow, the self-proclaimed Louis Vuitton Don is willing to give away one of his super expensive songs? Kanye must really be apologetic … or trying to improve his image. He says that if Taylor won’t take the song, then he will perform it for her. But isn’t Kanye making another egotistical assumption that the world wants to hear from him again regarding Taylor? We’re over it. [Essence] Keep reading »
See the woman sitting next to Kanye West with her finger to her lips at the US Open? Well, that’s model Selita Ebanks trying to look incognito. The word on Media Takeout is that Kanye “stole” Selita from singer Maxwell, her boyfriend of almost six months. And supposedly Maxwell is so angry that he’s threatened to kick Kanye’s pompous ass the next time they meet, at least according to a MTO “snitch.” Keep reading »
If nothing else, Amber Rose is chock full of perseverance. She’s been going for it hard both with her strange style and her attempts at a modeling career since she became Kanye West‘s ambiguous female friend a year or so ago. The most recent play in her apparently ill-fated search for supermodel-dom is a spread in YRB magazine. Head capped in a cheap-o wig that makes her look sort of like Marilyn Monroe on crack, Rose works it in various sparkly dresses and crazy faces. More images after the jump.
