Kanye West

Kanye West is an A-Hole

Last night was a big night for Kanye West. Although pretty much everyone on earth knew that he can be a little on the egotistical side, he really made everyone hate him when he charged the stage and humiliated one of the nicest people in the business: Taylor Swift. It’s important to note that Taylor is still a teenager, because when Kanye ripped the microphone out of her hands after she won the VMA he embarrassed her in front of the whole world. A grown man, behaving like that to a teenage girl!

Anyway, he took to his blog and released this half-assed apology for the events that took place:

I’M SOOOOO SORRY TO TAYLOR SWIFT AND HER FANS AND HER MOM. I SPOKE TO HER MOTHER RIGHT AFTER AND SHE SAID THE SAME THING MY MOTHER WOULD’VE SAID. SHE IS VERY TALENTED! I LIKE THE LYRICS ABOUT BEING A CHEERLEADER AND SHE’S IN THE BLEACHERS! …………………… I’M IN THE WRONG FOR GOING ON STAGE AND TAKING AWAY FROM HER MOMENT!…………….. BEYONCE’S VIDEO WAS THE BEST OF THIS DECADE!!!! I’M SORRY TO MY FANS IF I LET YOU GUYS DOWN!!!! I’M SORRY TO MY FRIENDS AT MTV. I WILL APOLOGIZE TO TAYLOR 2MRW. WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD!!!! EVERYBODY WANNA BOOOOO ME BUT I’M A FAN OF REAL POP CULTURE!!! NO DISRESPECT BUT WE WATCHIN’ THE SHOW AT THE CRIB RIGHT NOW CA– USE … WELL YOU KNOW!!!! I’M STILL HAPPY FOR TAYLOR!!!! BOOOYAAAWWWW!!!! YOU ARE VERY VERY TALENTED!!! I GAVE MY AWARDS TO OUTKAST WHEN THEY DESERVED IT OVER ME… THAT’S WHAT IT IS!!!!!!! I’M NOT CRAZY YALL, I’M JUST REAL. SORRY FOR THAT!!! I REALLY FEEL BAD FOR TAYLOR AND I’M SINCERELY SORRY!!! MUCH RESPECT!!!!!

Well, it’s good to know he likes those lyrics. That makes everything better, right?

A Quick Note To Kanye West and Amber Rose

[Not a valid template]

Kanye West and Amber Rose are spending some time at the Fountainebleau Miami Beach in Florida, and Amber was wearing next to nothing on the beach. When I say “next to nothing”, what I mean is that she was wearing some well-placed string as a bikini bottom, and two triangles for a top (when she was wearing a top at all). What is this? Europe? We don’t do that here!  Okay she has a body to die for, there ya go…

Quick note to Kanye: if you want to hit the beach and be inconspicuous, maybe you should go somewhere a little more quiet than, say, Miami Beach. Maybe somewhere in Brazil or Argentina or something? I hear it worked out well for the Governor of South Carolina, so perhaps you should try a more exotic location. Then pictures like these wouldn’t hit the Internet, and you wouldn’t have to worry about flipping off the camera to ruin the shots, just so ya know it doesn’t work!

Just a thought.

Happy Birthday Shane West!

Pete Wentz wasn’t the only one celebrating a birthday this weekend…Shane West was too! All kinds of celebs showed up for his bash at Bardot in Los Angeles last night, including Adrian Grenier (swoon!), Shane West (obviously), Evan Rachel Wood, AnnaLynne McCord, Eve, Devon Aoki and Tara Lipinski.

Is Kanye West Headed to Jail?

It’s being reported that rapper Kanye west has been charged with three criminal misdemeanors in connection with a camera-smashing incident at Los Angeles International Airport a couple of months ago. West was charged with vandalism, battery and grand theft.

The Los Angeles City Attorney has also charged Kanye’s manager Don Crowley with two counts of vandalism, two counts of battery and two counts of grand theft. The incident, which occurred on September 11, 2008, involved Crowley and West allegedly breaking a photographer’s camera equipment. Both men are scheduled for arraignment on April 14, 2009. If convicted on all counts, Kanye could get up to 2 1/2 years in jail. Crowley could get five years.

Kanye West And Amber Rose

Kanye West and his new…….girlfriend (I am being nice unlike some I could mention) do a spot of shopping in West Hollywood. Amber Rose has recently shot to fame not just because of her new man but also because of a rather raunchy photo shoot she has done wearing …… well, nearly nothing. Let’s just leave it at that!

The Y3 Fashion Show Brings Out the Stars

[Not a valid template]

So, yesterday was the Y3 Fashion Show in NYC, and the event brought out some pretty major names. People like Kanye West, Milla Jovovich, Kim Kardashian, Reggie Bush and Australian swimming champ Ian Thorpe were all in attendance, which means that the show must have been pretty good. I can’t imagine Kanye West sitting through a fashion show of stuff that belongs at Wal-Mart, if you know what I mean.

Jay-Z and Kanye Celebrate After the Grammy Awards

[Not a valid template]

Kanye West and Jay-Z (sans Beyonce) went to the same post-Grammy party at Katsushia last night. Um, how come I’m never invited to soirees like that? I’d love to get my party on with Kanye.

Speaking of Kanye, I’m totally and completely in love with his afro mullet. Business up front, party in the back! I want to sing sweet love songs to it. Seriously, I was never a fan of Kanye’s, until he got that hairdo. Now, I’ll love him for life.

Kanye West is in Jail!!!

TMZ is reporting that Kanye West is currently in jail on felony vandalism charges. Kanye was at the American Airlines terminal when it all went down (which is almost more surprising than the felony charges…he doesn’t strike me as the “I fly commercial” kind of guy). TMZ says:

“Our photog then began videotaping the scene when Kanye’s bodyguard grabbed our camera — a struggle ensued and the bodyguard threw the video camera to the ground, breaking it.

When Kanye realized our camera guy had videotaped the incident, he rushed our guy and yelled, ‘Gimme that f**king tape!’ “

I’m no lawyer, but half of my friends are so I feel qualified to give my opinion on the matter: shouldn’t celebrities have figured out by now that they shouldn’t attack photographers? They’re the ones who keep them in the spotlight in the first place!

Reality Stars turned out en force at Kanye West‘s after-party last night in Los Angeles at the nightclub Goa. Kim Kardashian, Brittny Gastineau, Kristin Cavallari and Lauren Conrad were just a few of the many attendees…reality star and otherwise…that made the party a huge success. Kanye left very shortly after the last song of the night, his tribute song to his late mother.

Kanye West attended the in-store signing of his new release Graduation at the Virgin Megastore Hollywood & Highland in Hollywood, CA yesterday. Kanye won the battle between he and 50 Cent, outselling Fiddy’s album that was released on the same day. It’s reported that Kanye’s new album is set to sell closed to 700,000 copies in its first week!

Is Kanye Gay?

blog_kanye_mahiki01.jpg

Rapper Kanye West has no regrets about speaking out against homophobia in hip-hop music, even though some people now assume he’s gay.

He says, “It’s being in the entertainment world, I meet so many different gay people who are actually nice people. Where I came from, Chicago, being black and being a hip-hop artist, we used to really disrespect gay people. And the thing is, we can’t get close to them with a 10-foot pole. And I realised, ‘Wow, how ignorant has this been?'”

Kanye, now 30, says, “Speaking out against hip-hop homophobia, some people were like ‘Oh, Kanye must be gay! Look at the way he’s dressing! And why would he speak about it? He’s a gay rapper.’ And my whole point is, I wouldn’t have spoke on that if I was gay or if I was in the closet. I would have stayed so far away from it.”

Kanye held a fans-only concert last night he calls “the future of rap music” at the most unlikely of locations: the Methodist Central Hall in Westminster, near London’s Houses of Parliament.

More than 1,000 loyal West supporters dutifully stood in line for an hour outside the venue, all clutching their mobile phones with coded text messages needed for admission to the “secret” concert. Money couldn’t buy the hottest ticket in town, with West’s single “Stronger” at No. 1 in the U.K. charts and his new album due in September.

Kanye West Launches Line Of Eyewear?

Unfortunately, rapper Kanye West isn’t going into eyewear design anytime soon (that we know of), but the rapper was wearing some very snazzy promotional glasses made of paper as he signed autographs whilst promoting his new album “Graduation” at BBC radio in London.

Meanwhile, the notoriously flashy gangsta rap star, 50 Cent, thinks his new album Curtis will outsell Kanye West’s upcoming disc, so much so that he’s betting his solo career on it. Fiddy (aka Curtis Jackson) stated on Friday that if Kanye’s album outsells his, he will stop releasing solo albums.

And now, country artist Kenny Chesney is getting in on the act. His new album Just Who I Am: Poets And Pirates is due to be released on the same day as those from Fiddy and Kayne. He suspects that he might sneak up on 50 Cent and Kanye West, grabbing the top slot on that week’s Billboard 200. Chesney says, “‘It’s funny how with every record that comes out, we’re aware of the urban [competition], and none of those acts acknowledge that I exist…until I have that No. 1 debut on the Top 200.” Chesney’s last studio album The Road And The Radio did, in fact, enter the charts at the top slot when it was released back in November 2005.

All three artists’ albums are due to hit stores on September 11.

Kanye vs. 50 Cent?

blog_kanye_west_01.jpg

It was rumored that Kanye West, seen here leaving the TRL studios, and 50 Cent had agreed to a presidential-style debate over whose album was better. Both artists’ new albums will be released on the same day.

Kanye, during his TRL visit, dismissed any chances of a showdown, saying “I don’t have beef with anyone. What am I going to debate about? I’m going to go in the studio and make music. When I heard the thing about the debate, I thought that was the stupidest thing. When my album drops and 50’s album drops, you’re gonna get a lot of good music at the same time.”
