MSNBC tried, but failed miserably to report the engagement of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. The “Kimye Engaged” caption accidentally (or on purpose?) flickered on the chyron over some footage of a man falling onto the NYC subway tracks. So macabre, but strangely, so indicative of how we feel about the whole thing. [Huffington Post]
Fresh off Kanye’s intimate proposal last night in a San Francisco stadium, blushing bride Kim Kardashian Instagrammed a pic of her stunning engagement ring with “Please Marry Me!” in the background. Damn, that diamond the size of Mason Disick’s head! Of course, we would expect nothing less. [Instagram/KimKardashian]
Pop the champagne: Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian last night during his concert in San Francisco! In place of getting down on one knee, Kanye wrote “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” across the Jumbotron in front of her family and friends. Pretty good 33rd birthday present for Kim, huh? Congratulations, you two crazy kids. [US Weekly] [Image via Instagram.com/ClydeHairGod]
After sifting through the Kim Kardashian photographic lexicon in order to narrow down these 10 most Kim Kardashian outfits ever worn by Kim Kardashian, I have reason to believe that the Internet is comprised at least 50 percent of Kim Kardashian photos. There are sooooooooo many. There are event photos, there are party photos, there are posed paparazzi photos none-too-subtly masquerading as “candids” from back when, ugh, Kim had to call the paparazzi on herself. But since Kanye West entered the Kim scene early last year, there are significantly fewer shots of Kim and Kris trying on every necklace in every store on jaunts to Europe. Those of us who are masochistic enough to keep up with the Kardashians weekly also know that Kanye’s utmost passion has been enabling and advising his girl’s sartorial metamorphosis, from low-budget leopard print aficionado to polished upscale adult.
The transformation has been a JOY, to say the least, but we admit we kind of miss the old Kim — you know, Kim the Bebe designer, Kim the Quick Trim rep, Kim the cornrow-wearer … Kanye would never allow these things. In the spirit of nostalgia AND KIM’S 33RD BIRTHDAY!!!!!!, we’re giving you Kim Kardashian’s 10 most (pre-Kanye) Kim Kardashian looks of all time, rated as we imagine Kanye would rate them … on a scale from one to five Kanyes. We call this the Kanye Scale.
Four months after giving birth to daughter North, Kim Kardashian put on a skimpy white bathing suit and posted this full-body selfie on Instagram. (I guess kicking
karbs carbs on the Atkins diet is working?) Kanye retweeted the photo to his legion of followers, and alerted Kim, “HEADING HOME NOW.” I’m so glad that social media makes it possible for all of us to witness celebrity foreplay, aren’t you? [Just Jared]
Over the past fortnight I’ve watched as a familiar narrative re-emerged around rapper Kanye West. Basically, Kanye’s an arrogant ranting asshole who needs to shut up, and stick to music. The end.
Admittedly, Kanye doesn’t help his cause. At times his behavior lends credence to what I think is a shallow theory.
Yes, Kanye West regularly makes outrageous statements about his overstated abilities and does silly things. But based solely on the Zane Lowe and Jimmy Kimmel interviews, Kanye’s fury can be distilled down to a single factor — he’s frustrated that despite his wealth, passion and accomplishments, he’s unable to start a joint venture with any of the major fashion companies. This frustration is deepened by the fact that he’s demonstrated he has influence over consumer buying habits and trends. Keep reading »
