Despite a claim that perpetually-disgruntled rap superstar Kanye West is over feuding with serpentine arch-enemy Taylor Swift, his top might say differently. (By “top,” I mean his t-shirt, not Ricardo Tisci.)
At the beginning of the month, Kanye West summoned his lawyers and threw a $10 million lawsuit at his insurers, Lloyd’s of London, for money he was allegedly owed after the cancellation of his Saint Pablo Tour. I know Kanye is all about Saint Pablo, but he might want to walk himself down to his local Catholic church and ask if there’s a patron saint of legal protection and a corresponding candle he can purchase. Because The Hollywood Reporter is saying that Lloyd’s of London has responded with a hefty counter-suit of his own. He might also want to inquire about some holy water to protect himself against whatever evil spirit is working for his in-laws, but that’s a whole other visit.
Like…um…research new Kimojis…aaaaand…make “fashion.” Come to think of it, I really don’t know what’s more important to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West than getting into a Candyland slap-fight with the singing Teenie Beanie Baby that is Taylor Swift. What’s that? She’s nearly 6 feet tall? Oh, suddenly we expect her to act her age AND her height?!
Rumi and Sir Knowles-Carter are the twin deities that sprang forth from the blessed womb of Beyonce back in June. As all things concerning Queen Bey and her consort Jay-Z are, the meaning of the twins’ names is vitally important! Their eldest daughter, five-year-old Blue Ivy, was obviously named after plants and colors. I kid; Blue was inspired by a Rebecca Solnit poem, and Ivy is supposedly a riff on the Roman numeral IV. The number four is a big deal for the Carters, in regards to birth dates and anniversaries and album titles and what have you. But what’s the deal with daughter Rumi’s name? And did Bey and Jay merely want the servants addressing their son Sir properly from the jump? The second part of Jay-Z’s interview with the Rap Radar podcast (via Us Weekly) revealed all!
Ladies and gentlemen, friends, family, cats. It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of the old Taylor Swift. According to her new song, one she has been aggressively teasing online for exactly one week, the old Taylor has died. Cause of death is unknown, although I suspect a case of acute attention-seeking might be a factor. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, please send dragon emojis to Kim Kardashian’s Instagram account.
For awhile now, Jay-Z and Kanye West’s friendship situation has been reminiscent of that friendship you have with that one person that you like but is always causing a problem in a public setting. Either they have a personality issue, or they can’t hold their booze, or they temporarily claim allegiance to the stupid and problematic. You’re loyal to them but you can only drag them out of so many parties before they’re thrown out and have to make sure they’re not going to murder the Uber driver so many times.
That’s what Hova and Yeeszus’ relationship was like for awhile. That was until Kanye’s meltdown late last year when he talked a lot of ish about Jay. What tipped the scales for Jay was when Kanye started in on his wife and child, Empress Beyonce and Blue “The Messiah” Ivy, during a show in Sacramento.
