Kanye West, Shut Up About Taylor Swift Already

“I feel like when Taylor was getting all those magazine covers, she was all good then. I feel completely empathetic and sympathize with that moment of her feeling bad, that spawned her to have one million magazine covers and be the most popular artist in the world, but in that moment of her feeling bad, I do feel bad about being the cause of that.”

—Most modest man in the world Kanye West talking (yet again) about how he pretty much made Taylor Swift’s career by interrupting her at the 2009 VMAs. I’m sure that “thank you” from Taylor will come any day now, Kanye. [Dlisted] Keep reading »

Kanye West Hurt George W. Bush’s Feelings

“I faced a lot of criticism as President. I didn’t like hearing people claim that I lied about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction or cut taxes to benefit the rich. But the suggestion that I was racist because of the response to [Hurricane] Katrina represented an all-time low. … I still feel that way. … As you read those words, I felt ‘em when I heard ‘em, felt ‘em when I wrote ‘em and I felt ‘em when I’m listening to ‘em.”

—George W. Bush says in his new book, Decision Points, that the “all-time low” of his presidency was when Kanye West said, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” And, err, not 9/11, or sending the first troops to Iraq, or hearing about the actual destruction in New Orleans after the hurricane. Interesting. [People] Keep reading »

Kanye West’s Epic “Runaway” Video

Kanye West is a genius — just ask him. In this HALF HOUR-LONG video for his new track “Runaway,” Kanye saves a phoenix-type model bird lady from a fiery blast. Then he plays with an 808 sampler and makes her dance. Then there’s a parade featuring an effigy of Michael Jackson, and a dinner party. Then a rash of ballerinas make the scene. Then he attempts to feed her turkey, which does not go over so well. Does any of it make sense? Not really. But it is nice to look at. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Get Diamond Teeth Like Kanye’s (Besides The Obvious)

Kanye West has done some really stupid things. So are you surprised that he went out and had diamonds permanently drilled into his bottom teeth? OK, maybe not so surprised. But still kind of astounded by the stupidity, especially after learning from The New York Daily News that this type of cosmetic enhancement is pretty risky. For starters, it’s not so healthy (ya think?) and one dentist says: “Diamonds are very hard, and this hard surface should not be used on the biting side of a tooth … Since diamonds are harder than your teeth, you will wind up breaking or wearing down your other teeth, causing you to need more dental work.” What else? Bleeding gums (gross). And if you choose to get the diamonds drilled directly into your teeth (as apposed to using a strong glue), and something goes wrong with the tooth, then you have the added cost of replacing the tooth and the diamond (assuming you still want it there).

Our question is … what credible dentists are actually doing this to people? [New York Daily News] Keep reading »

Kanye West Flashes His New Diamond And Gold Grin


The “Kanye West Is A Talented, But Idiotic Douche” file is getting full! Yesterday, the rapper appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’ show and proudly showed off his new blingin’ smile. Apparently, that ain’t no temporary grill — Kanye claims to have had his bottom row of teeth removed and replaced with diamond and gold implants because that’s “what rock stars are supposed to do.” Dude, you do know that pricey grin will still get food stuck in it from time to time, right?

Kanye West Album Cover Allegedly Banned From Walmart

Walmart has apparently banned Kanye West‘s new CD over seXXXy monster cover art. “Yooooo they banned my album cover!” Kanye whined on Twitter last night. “So Nirvana can have a naked human being on the cover but I can’t have a PAINTING of a monster with no arms and a polka dot tail and wings.”*** Keep reading »

Social Experiment: Who Is The First Person You Thought Of When You Heard Kanye’s “Runaway”?

For the past week, I have been putting my sociology degree to good use and conducting a little experiment. I’ve been asking people, “Who is the first person who popped into your mind when you heard Kanye West’s ‘Runaway’?'” The song has been everywhere, but in case you haven’t heard it, listen above. The chorus goes, “Let’s have a toast for the douchebags / Let’s have a toast for the a**holes / Let’s have a toast for the scumbags / Every one of them that I know / Let’s have a toast to the jerkoffs / That’ll never take work off / Baby, I got a plan / Run away fast as you can.”

Here is where things get interesting. Every single guy I have asked this question, with the exception of one male friend who said “Santa Claus,” has given the same answer: “myself.” Keep reading »

Kanye Is An O-K Fit With The Kardashians

Looks like Kanye West will be making an appearance on Kim and Kourtney Kardashian‘s reality show, as they set up a Dash store in NYC. I have no idea which show because they have so many. Maybe they’ll call it “Kourtney & Kim: Take NYC, Then Give It Back”? [10/4/10] Keep reading »

Kanye Kills It On “Saturday Night Live”


Kanye West may be an ego-maniacal douchebag, but boy, did he redeem himself musically on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. Performing “Power” (above) and “Runaway” (after the jump) on a glowing white stage, backed by over a dozen ballet dancers, Kanye killed it. Seriously, Mr. West, STFU and stick to what you’re good at — because when you do, you blow people away. See his other performance, after the jump… Keep reading »

Meet Kanye West’s Newest BFF, Cassius Marcellus Cornelius Clay

Stars, they’re just like us: They meet some of their best friends over the shoe sale at Barneys. Meet Cassius Marcellus Cornelius Clay. He’s the blue-blooded, preppy-to-the-max new buddy of Kanye West. The two apparently met when Kanye fell head-over-heels for a fancy pair of Italian shoes Clay was wearing, while on a fashion spree at Barneys. The two bonded over their love of fancy man items, exchanged numbers and embarked on an epic bromance. The 20-year-old Yale sophomore, who goes by Cassius Clay (and yes, he shares a name with Mohammed Ali), has since dropped out of school to follow West around, offering sage wisdom and fashion advice.

And sure we smell a hoax, but we so badly want to be believe this is real. Eat your heart out, Amber Rose! [IvyGate] Keep reading »
