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.
I’m psyched that “Saturday Night Live”‘s “Waking Up With Kimye” is seemingly going to be a regular sketch on the series (last night’s episode featured the sketch for a second time). This time, “Kimye” are celebrating the holidays with a new version of their “Bound 2″ video, featuring that hardworking, four-legged, red-nosed wonder. Uh huh, Rudolph!
At his San Antonio concert on Sunday, Kanye West stopped the show to reprimand an audience member for shouting at him to take off one of the masks — which admittedly is kinda creepy-looking — he wears onstage. Then he kicked her out of the arena. Because, in his words, he is “Kanye Motherfucking West.” He told her she can see his face on the Internet whenever she wants (true) and marveled at her supposed audacity for “tryin’ to tell me how to give you my art.”
Kanye then spent a good four minutes or so on an impulsive auto-tuned rant that compared him to Miles Davis, Tupac, and the Notorious B.I.G. (they’re all Geminis, after all, so he obviously shares their talents). Security then escorted the fan out, which some audience members protested. “Do I look like a motherfucking comedian?” Kanye asked. No, Kanye, “comedian” is definitely not that word I’d use to describe you. [Gawker]
