Last month we learned that Kanye West’s Star Wars-inspired low-income housing project was more than just a bizarre Howard Hughes-ian rich guy rumor. It turned out that Kanye had started construction on multiple prefabricated dwellings, which kind of looked like Luke Skywalker’s domed desert house on Tatooine, in the backyard of his Calabasas mansion without a permit. Anyone who has every tried to build so much as a dog house knows there will always be a neighbor who is more than happy to rat you out to the building permit people, and that’s kind of what happened to Kanye. In an extra-shocking turn of events, Kanye isn’t building houses in his backyard anymore.
Gwyneth Paltrow should pull out an extra chair at this week’s support group meeting for famous Hollywood moms who forgot to ask first before they threw up a picture of their kid on social media. Because Kate Hudson will be joining them to utter the words, “God grant me the serenity to accept my posting faux-pas, and the courage to try to explain it all to my very pissed-off teenager.”
Ariana Grande recently filed a $10 million lawsuit against almost-bankrupt Forever 21 for allegedly stealing several looks from her video 7 Rings. Ariana claimed in the lawsuit that she had met with Forever 21 to discuss a collaboration, and when Forever 21 didn’t want to pony up enough cash, they turned around and just flat-out stole her looks anyway. Well, RuPaul’s Drag Race alumni Farrah Moan claims that Forever 21 might not be the only one guilty of stealing looks here.
Yesterday, Sephora closed their 400 US stores for one hour so staff could get some much-needed diversity training after SZA called out a store in Calabasas for racial profiling. SZA claimed an employee called security to make sure she wasn’t stealing anything. It sounds like those diversity day pamphlets weren’t printed off a moment too soon. Because Leslie Jones recently slapped at another Sephora location for allegedly treating her makeup artist like crap.
The Wall Street Journal claimed this week that Lauren Sanchez’s Trump-loving gay brother, Michael Sanchez, sold her out to The National Enquirer for $200,000 by giving them sexts between her and Jeff Bezos. The WSJ also said that Michael gave the Enquirer dick pics that Jeff texted Lauren. Michael denied that he gave Jeff’s dick pics to the Enquirer. But now he’s telling Page Six that he did help the Enquirer with their exposé on Jeff and Lauren allegedly cheating on their spouses by bumping home wrecking fuck parts. Michael claims he made a deal with the Enquirer to help his sister. No word if “sister” is his nickname for his checking account, but one source claims that his acts of greedy buffoonery may have fucked up his sister’s chances at becoming a billionaire’s second wife!
For a Halloween party this weekend, Shaun White decided to dress up as Ben Stiller’s movie-within-a-movie character Simple Jack from Tropic Thunder. Obviously it didn’t go over well, and he’s apologizing for it now.
