Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Hot on the heels of his sneaker design collaboration with Nike, Kanye West has debuted another one with Louis Vuitton. The collection, simply called, er, Kanye West for Louis Vuitton, features five distinct sneakers which range in colors from solid red to pastel shades. West mixed the usual suspects when it comes to sneaker materials like leather uppers and cotton laces with felt trimming. And while they might look like your standard sneaker, the signature Louis Vuitton logo on the soles and tongues let you know that these are luxury kicks. So does the price! The shoes, available at Louis Vuitton stores, cost between $840 and $1140 depending on the style. If your guy, really, really, really wanted these, would you buy them for him? It’s a recession, so I’m thinking I’d download the picture and frame it nicely for him instead. Keep reading »
Our new obsession, Drake just dropped his new music video for “Best I Ever Had,” directed by Kanye West. After the initial “Degrassi” disabled basketball star flashbacks, I have to admit I just a bit peeved at the bra-less basketball team’s gratuitous bouncing…don’t they know that working out sans sports bra hurts the little sisters? Drake made up for it when he said, “Sweat pants, hair tied, chilling with no makeup on, that’s when you’re the prettiest, I hope that you don take it wrong” and then again (kinda) when you find out his coaching skills were limited to teaching the beauties how to stretch and he essentially admits to being a total perve who just wants to love. What do you guys think, adorable or abominable? Keep reading »
Dating a rapper can sure do wonders for your career. Case in point: Amber Rose. The blonde bombshell, who has been cavorting across multiple continents with Kanye West, has just been signed to Ford Models. Not a bad deal, considering Ford is the world’s top agency, with legendary clients like Chanel Iman, Ashley Tisdale, and Bar Rafaeli. [All That's Fab] Keep reading »
The blogosphere is still debating over whether or not Kanye West and Amber Rose are really broken up or if they’re secretly still shopping and sexing each other. I, on the other hand, am more interested in knowing if they were ever that close to begin with. Walking around like the remix to Prince and Apollonia is cute and all, but I think everyone is forgetting one important fun fact: Amber seems to really really like women…Read more
Rihanna stars in Kanye West’s video for “Paranoid.” Why is she appearing in a music video for a song she doesn’t even sing on? We have a few ideas:
Stilettos aren’t the only kind of footwear enjoying a cult following. An increasing number guys —and girls —are developing a sneaker fetish that rivals anything Carrie Bradshaw ever had for Manolo Blahniks. The diehards are officially called “sneakerheads” and they are shelling out anywhere from $250 to well over $1000 for specialty kicks like classic Air Jordans or the brand new (and already sold-out) Air Yeezy’s, designed by Kanye West for Nike. Sneakerheads are a clean bunch and refuse to walk through grass or dirt to preserve the pristineness of their sneaks.
Proof that this phenomenon is reaching a fever pitch? Sneaker Pimps, an international convention which was launched in 2003 by Australian skater Peter Fahey, had only 200 attendees its first year. Earlier this month, the sixth annual Sneaker Pimps convention was held in Atlanta and guests were in the thousands. Outkast artist Big Boi, a self-confessed sneaker-holic, was in attendance and said, “You can really tell a lot about a person through the shoes, so I always like to keep me a fresh pair.” We know the feeling.

If you know anything about Kanye, you know he loves his Balenciaga sandals and neon. Some people think he looks moronic. Some people think he looks awesome. Apparently, some people think he looks “gay.”
Blogger Elizabeth Gates at the Daily Beast noticed how homophobic and racially motivated some commenters’ replies were about recent paparazzi snaps of Kanye and his entourage at Fashion Week. “Only gay guys wear that [crap!]” one wrote. “Bootylishious,” wrote another. But this isn’t anything new. Two years ago, 50 Cent made waves when he complained that Kanye got invited on “Oprah,” not him, which he said proved Middle America would be OK with their kids being gay. Keep reading »
