It’s no secret that Nicki Minaj isn’t afraid to raise her hand and loudly say “Um, EXCUSE ME!” when she sees something that sets her off. Like calling out ass acceptability standards, or time the MTV VMAs gave Taylor Swift more nominations than her. Now she’s letting everyone know how she feels about Kanye West marrying the metaphorical “white girl” from his 2005 song Gold Digger. Not surprisingly, Nicki’s not having it.
TMZ says that Kim Kardashian has just filed a federal lawsuit against MediaTakeOut.com for alleging that she pulled a Ryan Lochte and made up a story about being held at gunpoint and robbed in her apartment in Paris last week. According to TMZ, Kim has a problem with 3 MediaTakeOut posts that accuse her of faking the whole thing. MTO believes the robbery was an inside job that goes all the way to Kim herself. One post alleges there’s evidence that Kim “staged” her robbery. Another claims that French authorities suspect that Kim let the robbers in. They accused Kim of committing a federal crime by filing a false insurance claim. Kim isn’t having any of it. She reportedly contacted MTO and told them to retract the stories and issue apologies. When they didn’t respond, her lawyers Marty Singer and Andrew Brettler threw a lawsuit at them.
King of his own asshole inner-space Kanye West put on a New York Fashion Week show back in September whose primary goals seemed to be giving his models heatstroke and spiral fractures in their ankles. Kanye, having received a collective boo from the fashion press (and probably Amnesty International), reportedly fired his entire staff after “The Atrocity Exhibition on Roosevelt Island.”
Unless you’ve been living under a rock with a shaky wifi connection, you know that Taylor Swift currently hates Kanye West because of a lyric (that she did/didn’t approve) that references having sex with her in his song “Famous.” The lyric in question is:
“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous.“
As it turns out, that’s actually a second draft lyric re-write. The original demo of “Famous” made its way onto the internet yesterday. I have bad news for Taylor’s lawyers: you’re probably going to be working this weekend.
There are so many sides to be on in the Kim Kardashian Paris robbery story. You can be on Team She Deserved It For Being So Flashy like Karl Lagerfeld and Kim herself, or Team Did It Even Actually Happen Though? like others, or Team I Feel Bad For The Poor Fame Whore. Hillary Clinton is on that one. We’ve gotten to the point in this story where we’re asking a presidential candidate what they think about it.
Kunty Karl can’t physically cry, but if he could, he wouldn’t shed one tear about Kim Kardashian reportedly getting robbed at gunpoint by jewel thieves. Karl basically told reporters after his Chanel show that when you drink Don Pérignon around Three Buck Chuck drinkers, you shouldn’t be surprised when one of them snatches your crystal champagne flute out of your hand. A spokesperson for the Paris police department also hit our eyeballs with a giant DUX (that’s French for “duh,” I checked) by saying that Kim was targeted by alleged thieves because she’s famous, rich and flashed her diamonds all over social media. Pimp Mama Kris, I mean, a family source, tells People that Kim isn’t blaming her pimp mom for choosing that one night to not have cameras on her. Kim is blaming herself.
