Watch The Moment Kourtney Told Kris Jenner Kim Kardashian’s And Kanye West’s Surrogate Was In Labor — It Happened On Ellen!

On Friday, May 10, 2019, Kim Kardashian went public on Twitter and officially announced the birth of her fourth child, a son. However, on Thursday, while momager Kris Jenner was on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Kourtney Kardashian broke the news to her that the couple’s surrogate was in labor. Kris Jenner is known for creating a successful empire after going through personal loss, tragedy, and divorce. As a single mother of six children, she created a way to not only provide for her family but made a dynasty. That dynasty has greatly expanded in the past year as many of her children continue to have babies.

Appearing on Ellen was Kourtney’s and Kim’s children. The Kardashians and Jenners have seen an influx of new children as Kylie Jenner gave birth to Stormi, Khloe Kardashian gave birth to True, and Kim added to the family with her daughter Chicago. All of the children are within months apart and now Kim’s new baby boy is one year younger than his year-old sister and cousins.

At the rate the Kardashian/Jenner empire is growing, one foresees the day when the younger children will dominate gossip columns and news headlines.

You may watch the moment as it unfolded and Kris Jenner’s shocking response to hearing the news that Kim Kardashian’s and Kanye West’s surrogate was in labor in the video player below.

The Kardashian Jenners continue to dominate the news with their social media posts, the reality series Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWK) that is currently in Season 16, their fashion statements, and their beauty and other lines.

Kim Kardashian-West has made recent news by saying she has entered a law apprenticeship and studying to become an attorney. She has worked behind the scenes in helping more than a dozen people who were incarcerated for non-violent, drug-related crimes find freedom.

What Kim’s expanding family means for her law studies is not yet known, but Kim Kardashian has proved that when she sets her mind to doing something she’s unstoppable.

What did you think of Kris Jenner’s interview with Ellen? Were you surprised by her reaction to Kourtney’s revelation that Kim’s and Kanye’s baby boy was on the way?

Is the Baby Here? Kanye West Says Kim K. Has ‘Four Kids’

Has baby No. 4 arrived? Kim Kardashian’s latest tweet is raising eyebrows! On Monday, May 6, the reality star, 38, shared a screenshot of a text message from husband Kanye West on Twitter. She captioned the photo, “Morning texts.”

The text read: “This is your life. Married with four kids, get people out of jail, cover of Vogue, go to church every week with your family. Dreams come true.”

Many fans on Twitter wondered if the rapper’s “married with four kids” statement meant that the couple welcomed their fourth child. However, a source confirms to Us Weekly that the baby has not arrived just yet. West, 41, and Kardashian are the parents of North, 5, Saint, 3, and Chicago, 15, months, and are expecting their latest arrival sometime this month.

Us broke the news in January that the couple are expecting their fourth child, a son, via surrogate. They welcomed Chicago via gestational carrier as well, as the Selfish author suffered from a life-threatening condition, placenta accreta, during her first two pregnancies.

The model has been anxiously awaiting the arrival and celebrated with a calming baby shower on April 27.

“Because I am freaking out so much, I just want a zen-like CBD-themed baby shower,” she told E! News before the celebration. “I just want massages, I want to do like a tea ceremony with crystals and we’re going to have a drink at this baby shower — we’re not pregnant … Massages for all, like, just meditation, calm before the storm baby shower.”

The pair have also not decided on a name yet for their son. “We all weigh in,” Kardashian told Jimmy Kimmel in April. “I definitely take a family survey, but it’s usually after the baby’s born and we’re trying to figure out what the baby looks like. I usually go about three or four days nameless until I feel that it really connects with me.”

The KKW Beauty founder then noted she’s hoping for a family name: “I was truthfully thinking about just naming him Rob, [after] my brother. But then it’s like, North, Saint, Chicago, Rob. It doesn’t really go. I really was feeling like that, or Robert. And my brother approved it, so that’s, like, our one kind of name. I like Rob West.”

Temple Of Yeezy: Kanye West Considering Starting A Church: Report

2019 Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival - Weekend 2 - Day 3

Kanye West’s Sunday Service at Coachella this weekend was a resounding success, with 50,000 people getting up early to hear Yeezy renditions of gospel tunes. So much so, that the “Jesus Walks” rapper is reportedly thinking about starting his very own church.

Isn’t this man already hella stressed?

A “source” told People magazine, “He is extremely passionate about his faith and wants to share it more regularly with people. He spends a lot of time studying and praying, and wants to share his journey.”

Well, duh. This isn’t shocking to anyone who had paid attention to Yeezus project. But a whole church?

The source added, “Say what you want about Kanye, but he really does want to help people who need support. He understands brokenness and the need for healing, probably more than most people. He believes in the healing powers of music, but also believes that God can step in and heal people’s brokenness and their issues.”

Will the gospel of Yeezy bringing only positive vibes? Or, will it, hopefully not, become some type of cult ripe for exploitation by those with ill intentions?

Either way, Kanye West probably have plenty of merchandise to supply his parishioners with. Like a holy congregation of clout, in Yeezus’ name.

Kim Kardashian Confesses She Can’t ‘Babysit’ Kanye West Any Longer

E!

Sixteen seasons in, Keeping Up with the Kardashians is pulling out all the stops to try and maintain its must-see-TV status. The Kardashians have spent over a decade mining their personal lives and family dynamic for viewers—so it’s shocking, and impressive, that they can still surprise. On the Sunday night premiere of KUWTK, reality TV’s first family revealed this season’s secret weapon: increased airtime for Kanye West, who has finally deigned to do confessional interviews.

Those who have kept up will recall that when Kim first married the increasingly controversial superstar, he appeared to distance himself from his new family’s E! empire. But if this episode is any indication, Kanye is essentially a main cast member now. Like most image-related decisions that Kim Kardashian and/or Kris Jenner have made, this is a smart one. Keeping Up with the Kardashians is a weekly opportunity for a group of very famous people to spin the celebrity news cycle. Kanye West is in perpetual need of damage control. With Kim by his side—literally, he only participates in on-camera interviews as a couple—Kanye can try and reframe the narrative in his favor.

During this premiere, the story that Kim and Kanye are trying to contain is about Kanye’s alleged lack of support for Donda’s House, a Chicago nonprofit that was co-founded by West and named in honor of his late mother, Dr. Donda West. Kim has traveled to Chicago to show North where her father grew up and to make a (contractually obligated?) appearance at The Sugar Factory. But in order to visit the house, which is now tied up in the nonprofit, Kanye has to reach out to co-founder Rhymefest. This is a bit awkward, because Kim and Rhymefest got into a very public spat last year when the rapper called West out, accusing him of neglecting the organization and “the youth of Chicago.”

Kim K. Shares Selfie With Kanye and Kids, Reveals Whether She’d Run for Office

View this post on Instagram

Morning ✨

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

Kim Kardashian shared a sweet selfie with her husband, Kanye West, and their three kids on Saturday, March 30.

“Morning,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 38, captioned the Instagram photo that showed her eldest daughter, North, 5, in her lap, while son Saint, 3, grabbed onto her arm and youngest daughter Chicago, 14 months, snuggled with her daddy.

Her friend Jonathan Cheban commented on the photo, writing, “I’m ready to have kids..because of this pic!!” Model Winnie Harlow, meanwhile, volunteered to be the kids’ “designated babysitter.”

The photo showed the family enjoying some time together before they welcome a new baby via surrogate.

Us Weekly broke the news in January that the KKW Beauty founder and her rapper husband, 41, are expecting their fourth child — a boy — “in very early May.”

“Kim and Kanye have begun work on the nursery,” an insider told Us earlier this week. “North fully understands what’s going on and is so into it.”

“I’m frantically trying to get the room ready,” Kardashian told The New York Times in a story about the Kardashian-Jenner family’s multimillion-dollar businesses posted on Saturday. “It’s madness, but the best madness.”

Kardashian also talked about the products she endorses on social media, revealing that she turns down more offers than she accepts. She said that anyone who is in her position would also want to maximize their income.

“If there is work that is really easy that doesn’t take away from our kids, that’s like a huge priority,” she said. “If someone was faced with the same job opportunities, I think they would maybe consider.”

“You’re going to get backlash for almost everything,” she said of people who criticize her and her family for cashing in as they promote teeth-whitening kits and weight-loss teas, “so as long as you like it or believe in it or it’s worth it financially, whatever your decision may be, as long as you’re OK with that.”

Kardashian, who has used her fame to call for criminal justice reform and visited President Donald Trump at the White House, was also asked if she would consider running for office.

“No, I don’t think so,” she said. “It would be probably the most stressful job in the world, and I don’t think that’s for me.”

The Guy Who Dyes Kanye West’s Hair Explains Himself [Photos]

Kanye West

Source: Splash / Splash News

Kanye West has been experimenting with his hair color lately. So of course, someone tracked down the hairstylist responsible for the Skittles bag-worthy hues Yeezy has been coloring his hair.

Page Six tracked down Daniel Moon, owner of HAIR Salon, where West goes to color his non-wavy ceasar.

“This time, I was allowed to be more detailed, which made me super happy because with more time I can create a more original, multi-dimensional piece,” said Moon of Yeezy’s latest, rainbow-flavor dye job. “Making [it] look real and believable from every direction of the head can be a challenge, but we accomplished that really nicely. The energy in the room was vibrating.”

Was it now? More details on the inspiration:

Moon was inspired to create the splatter-painted style after visiting LA art fairs the weekend before, and wanting “to push the prior two styles that we had collaborated on and take them to the next level. Knowing how inspired Kanye is by color and light and artists like James Turrell helps guide the collaborations.”

It all clicked, he continued, “[once] we found that lava red, which we started using with the last time we worked together. [It] felt like a spirit color for him. When you have your spirit color it tends to ignite something inside, and that’s when the magic happens.”

“Personally, I really enjoyed the final outcome and felt like Kanye did too, so I think everybody is pretty stoked,” he added.

See some angles of West’s look below.

In the latest episode of “Who’s Man Is This?,” Kanye West has rededicated himself to Donald Trump, or at least the Make America Great Again hat. Yeezy took to Twitter, of course, to triple down on his MAGA lifestyle

“One of my favorite of many things about what the Trump hat represents to me is that people can’t tell me what to do because I’m black,” tweeted West on Monday, January 1.

This was the last of a series of tweets that included revealing he will appear on Joe Rogan’s podcast and once again telling Drake not to follow his wife on Instagram.

This is where we find it necessary to point out that Kanye West is 41-years-old who is likely not treating his bipolar disorder.

Oh yeah, Ye also threw in a “Trump all day” previously.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kanye West is not sending Christmas cheer to Drake.

West appeared to reignite a feud with the fellow rapper in a series of tweets on Thursday in which he claimed Drake had called trying to threaten him.

West wrote “So drake if anything happens to me or anyone from my family you are the first suspect – So cut the tough talk.”

West alleged Drake was behind audience members rushing the stage and splashing fellow rapper Pusha T with liquid during a concert in Toronto in November.

Drake did not post a response. An email seeking comment was sent to a Drake representative.

The rappers have had an ongoing feud this year, but West had apologized to Drake in September.

Ariana Grande, Kanye West Feud Over Mental Health Turns Serious as Pete Davidson Posts Concerning Message

A Twitter spat between Ariana Grande and Kanye West over mental health took a serious turn on Saturday after Pete Davidson, an SNL star and Grande’s ex-fiance, posted a message on social media that some took as suicidal.

The tiff between the two musicians began when Grande waded into a feud between West and the music star Drake yesterday.

Drake and West and have notoriously had a contentious relationship since at least 2011, according to ELLE. Their feud was apparently reignited in September, when Drake made a snide reference to the sneakers West designs in a song. Then on December 13, Drake requested sampling a portion of Kanye’s song in one of his compositions. Soon afterward, Kanye launched into a Twitter rant that lasted more than 100 tweets.

Grande responded to the very public dispute with a teasing tweet of her own.

“Guys, I know there are grown men arguing online rn but miley and I dropping our beautiful, new songs tonight so if y’all could please jus behave for just like a few hours so the girls can shine that’d be sick thank u,” Grande wrote on Twitter, which she later deleted.

West did not take kindly to Grande’s intrusion and suggested that she was inserting herself into the beef to promote her new song, “Imagine,” which released Friday.

Grande then apologized for being insensitive about West’s mental health, but fired back at him for suggesting she was promoting herself.

“With all due respect, I don’t need to use anyone to promote anything. period. I was making a comment ab what men were doing at the time v.s. women. It was a joke which I understand now was probably insensitive. I apologize if I was in any way triggering and I hope u feel well today,” Grande tweeted. She later deleted her tweet.

This morning, Davidson appeared to side with West in an Instagram post.

“Bravo Kanye West for standing up for yourself and speaking out against [sic] mental health,” his post read. “I can’t explain to you enough how difficult and scary it is to be honest about stuff like this. We need people like Kanye. No one should ever point fingers at you for your bravery in speaking about mental health. I’m seriously disgusted.”

A few hours later, however, Davidson published another message that struck an even more serious tone.

“I really don’t want to be on this earth anymore. I’m doing my best to stay here for you but I actually don’t know how much longer I can last,” Davidson wrote.

Davidson, who has spoken out frequently about having bipolar disorder and suicidal tendencies, appeared to suggest that he was feeling suicidal. Soon afterward, he deleted both messages.

Earlier this month, Davidson wrote on Instagram:

“I’ve been getting online bullied and in public by people for 9 months. I’ve spoken about BPD and being suicidal publicly only in the hopes that it will help bring awareness and help kids like myself who don’t want to be on this earth,” he wrote. “No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won’t. I’m upset I even have to say this.”

In since-deleted tweets, Grande apologized for being insensitive about mental health issues.

“Man I’m so sorry I told a dumb joke. I really didn’t mean any harm. All I want everyone to be healthy and happy. so desperately,” she tweeted.

Soon afterwards, she tweeted seemingly at Davidson: “I’m downstairs and I’m not going anywhere if you need anyone or anything. I know u have everyone u need and that’s not me, but I’m here too.”

TMZ reported that she had made her way to 30 Rock in Manhattan, where SNL is filmed, in order to try and see Davidson.

Davidson was accounted for at SNL and “fine,” according to the New York Times.

‘KUWTK’ Finale: Kim Kardashian Meets With Trump, Worries About Kanye

Going out with a bang! The Sunday, December 9, season finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians was jam-packed with drama as Kim Kardashian juggled Kanye West‘s TMZ Live appearance, a meeting with President Donald Trump, and the Met Gala.

The episode began with a heartbroken Kim explaining how she became moved and inspired by one prisoner’s story. Alice Johnson, Kim explained to sister Kourtney Kardashian, was a woman who’d been in jail serving a life sentence for 21 years over a nonviolent first-time offense. Kim became involved in the case after reaching out and offering to help. Kim told Kourtney, “The only person who can grant her clemency … would be the president.” In a testimonial, Kim explained her plan to help Alice involved a White House visit. “My first phone call was to Ivanka [Trump]. … She connected me with her husband Jared [Kushner],” Kim said. “They’ve asked me to go and talk to Trump about why Alice should get out.”

Kim also revealed, “I’ve been so straightforward with Jared that I have different views. I was at Hillary [Clinton] fundraisers. This might not be a popular opinion, but I’ll talk to who I need to talk to to get things done.”

In the midst of planning her White House visit and traveling to New York for the Met Ball, Kim was hit with a curveball: her husband Kanye’s controversial TMZ Live appearance where the rapper stated, “When you hear about slavery for 400 years … for 400 years? That sounds like a choice.”

Momager Kris Jenner was slated to appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show shortly after the statements were made. Backstage at the talk show, she told boyfriend Corey Gamble that Kim had told her, “You’re not the person who’s qualified to talk about Kanye. You’re just gonna make it worse.” Kris, who refused to cancel her TV appearance, added that despite the nature of Kanye’s comments, “My loyalty really lies with Kanye.”

Later, while getting ready for the Met Gala in her New York City hotel room, Kim opened up to Jonathan Cheban about Kanye’s actions. “Everyone thinks he’s having a breakdown,” she said. “When I saw the clip, I rushed home, I was hysterically crying. So I go home, he’s totally fine.”

“When he gets ramped up, he can’t control what he says. He can’t let it go. But he loves getting ramped up,” she continued. “As a wife, it’s really frustrating to see the media take everything and run with it.”

As the Kanye controversy roared in the background, Kim was all business as she traveled to the White House with attorney Shawn Holley, the lawyer who famously represented Lindsay Lohan during her 2013 legal battle. Holley described the meeting with Trump, saying, “It was a lot of chit-chatting. They talked a little bit about Khloé [Kardashian] on The Celebrity Apprentice.”

There was also “a lot of Kanye talk. [Trump said,] ‘Oh, I love Kanye,’” Kim added. “Jared had said Kanye speaking out and reaching out had been very positive for this.”

The meeting resulted in a positive outcome when, a few days later, Kim, in the middle of a photo shoot, was able to break the news to Alice Johnson that she’d be released from prison. Alice, who later appeared in the episode as Kim flew to Tennessee to meet her, cried and called Kim an “angel.”

As for her meeting with Trump, Kim later told Shawn, “This has nothing to do with politics. I don’t really know anything. This just has to do with getting in front of the person that is the only person in the world that can make this decision and try to change their mind.”

Keeping Up With the Kardashians airs on E! Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.

Kanye West Writes Amara Enyia A Big Check

(Ashlee Rezin/Chicago Sun-Times via AP)

CHICAGO (AP) — Hip-hop megastar Kanye West told his Twitter followers that he was “distancing” himself from politics even as he sent a big check to boost a Democratic mayoral hopeful in his hometown of Chicago.

West tweeted this week that he realizes “I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in.” That follows his Oval Office visit last month during which he dropped the F-word while talking with President Donald Trump.

State campaign records show West gave $ 126,460 to Amara Enyia’s mayoral campaign, a week after he donated $ 73,540 and appeared with her for a sidewalk news conference on Chicago’s South Side. He didn’t speak and left after about five minutes.

Other Democrats have questioned Enyia for accepting money from a high-profile Trump supporter. But she’s said she appreciates West’s backing.

Kanye West No Longer Supports Donald Trump? – ‘I’ve Been Used’

It looks like Kanye West is finally realizing he made a mistake by supporting Donald Trump and he is now admitting he was ‘used.’ This is not a revelation for the rest of the world but at least he figured it out in the end, right? Better late than never!

The rapper seems to be throwing away his MAGA hat and choosing to stay away from politics altogether.

Ye took to social media earlier today to make his political views very clear, just a few weeks after a very embarrassing White House meeting with Donald Trump.

Has Kim Kardashian’s husband turned his back on the president?

Now, Ye admits he may have been used, in particular by Trump supporter Candace Owens.

On his Twitter, Kanye started by writing: ‘I support creating jobs and many opportunities for people who need them the most, I support prison reform, common-sense gun laws which will make our world safer. I support those who risk their very lives to serve and to protect us, and I support holding people who misuse their power accountable for it.’

‘I believe in love and in compassion for people seeking asylum and parents who are fighting to protect their children from violence and war.’

His views on those ‘seeking asylum’ are definitely in conflict with the Donald’s stance on the matter.

Slamming the people fleeing crime and drug wars as well as poverty and heading to the U.S. from Central America, Trump tweeted: ‘Many gang members and some very bad people are mixed into the caravan heading to our Southern Border.’

As for Kanye, he also decided to distance himself from his ‘Blexit’ line which was meant to encourage African-Americans to exit the Democratic party.

‘I introduced Candace to the person who made the logo and they did not want their name on it so she used mine. I never wanted any association with Blexit. I have nothing to do with it,’ Kanye said in response to a statement that ‘Blexit is a renaissance and I am blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West.’

Ye went on to thank ‘my family, loved ones, and community for supporting my ACTUAL beliefs and my vision for a better world. My eyes are wide open now and I realize I have been used to spread messages I do not believe in. I’m distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative!’

That’s all his loyal fans have been wanting for the longest time!

Time and time again, security specialists have been nailing it into our heads the number one commandment of the digital age: change your passwords as frequently as seasons change, and make them sophisticated enough that they’re unhackable but straightforward enough that you can still commit them to memory. Frankly, that’s not always the simplest task, given that most websites require you to create codes that contain special characters, uppercase letters, or something bizarre like the exact value of Pi.

Is Kanye West A Bot Desperate For Validation?

Recent events regarding Kanye West’s erratic behavior have led me to believe that the man we see in public isn’t the real Kanye but a first generation android. These “first-gen” androids created to replace black celebrities desperate for a seat at the table of whiteness effectively regurgitate inane and rudimentary Fox News rhetoric but are still working out early model kinks. There are ways to tell but two examples of proof with Kanye is the blank, lost look in the eyes—possibly a malfunction or breakdown in programming—and the intense staunch doubling down on flawed and debunked political views he repeats after reading Donald Trump’s occasionally entertaining, but always eye-roll-inducing Twitter feed. The flesh-and-blood Kanye—if he is still with us—is locked away in a dank, cool basement overrun with water bugs the size of fat pecans watching this boring, uninspired version of himself make a mockery of his musical legacy and dismantle his worthy contributions to music and pop culture.

Is Kanye In The Sunken Place?

If Kanye isn’t an android, then it’s safe to say that he has been a victim of a nefarious suburban racial scheme akin to Jordan Peele’s 2017 global hit and Oscar-winning film Get Out. By now we’ve all seen Get Out and if you haven’t then it’s worth a watch. But for those who aren’t in the know, a young black man goes to visit his white girlfriend’s family in an upstate New York town only to stumble upon a diabolical scheme that involved white people literally stealing, wearing, sexualizing, and profiting off of the bodies of black men and women. Are the Kardashian women the Armitages? Is Kim K. the Rose in this story who blithely lures a black man to a room of horrors where he is stripped of his essence and his mind is replaced by a bland white man in 45’s administration? As some of the memes last year implied, is Kanye in the sunken place of his mind?

The Miseducation of Kanye West

Science fiction conspiracy theories aside, Kanye is responsible for his own downfall and enjoys the attention, even if it’s negative. Gone is the Kanye West of 2005, who brazenly interrupted Mike Myers, much to Myers’ chagrin, and shouted without missing a beat: “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” At the time, it was an apt response to Bush’s sluggish reaction to saving the mostly black and poor white folks of New Orleans post-Hurricane Katrina. Reactions were polarizing but the overall sentiment was that Kanye told no lies, or at least, said what many were thinking. The artist whose first three albums were multiplatinum successes selling nearly 10 million copies between the three of them combined, according to RIAA; who won multiple Grammys for his contributions to the culture; and who famously interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech for the 2009 VMAs because he was so butthurt over her “You Belong With Me” video winning over Beyoncé’s now classic video “Single Ladies.” The interruption has gone on to become sort of a pop culture mainstay with “I’ma let you finish but…” becoming a regularly used intro by people all over when they are about to share their thoughts of a better product that was passed up for a perceived inferior one.

The man who, whether you loved him, hated him, or were indifferent to him, was pumping out hit after hit of admittedly well-crafted tunes, piecing together obscure soul samples and creating whole new songs out of them has been replaced by this dead-eyed, lifeless husk of a being who is a rampant Trump supporter, and unable to have a cohesive conversation and back up his assertions with actual facts.

Kanye, The Obstacle

We live in a world where Taylor Swift, who was notoriously silent on political views, is a neo-liberal advocating for young people to vote (resulting in an immense spike in voter registration) while Kanye West is sitting dead-eyed in the Oval Office rambling like a man with no soul, perfectly on par with the malignant narcissist that is our Commander in Chief. Swift, who seems to be inexplicably linked to Kanye in a number of ways, is making more sense in her ivory tower of success and ubiquity than a man who prematurely called himself the voice of a generation in one of his many rants. Those were the days when he was relatively sane, his ego and need to be a part of the elite being the only negative qualities that hampered true greatness. But those qualities were mostly tolerable then or, at the very least, you could ignore his posturing and throw on some Rufus and Chaka and go on about your day. But when a successful artist is on TMZ making uneducated claims about slavery and is in the Oval Office in the presence of a person who truly doesn’t like black people and whose megalomania dwarf’s Kanye’s, then we have truly reached an era in “what the f–k.?”

My creative, nerdy, Octavia Butler-loving side tells myself that Kanye is an android who is acting on gleaned information from interviews or perhaps information shared by the Kardashians. Or, I get a little darker and see Kanye as the victim of melanin envy and swiftly and covertly done away with and replaced by the blandest white males in Trump’s administration. Then reality sets in and I’m no longer able to feed my creative self those stories.

To blame anyone else for Kanye’s downfall is simply lazy and another way in which black male celebrities aren’t being held accountable and I won’t do that. Kanye is the reason Kanye is failing in his career and is destroying his legacy in the process. Despite the fact that he visited Uganda and gifted the children with pairs of his Yeezy sneakers (altruism, I suppose) if the brotha doesn’t get real help, the worst will happen and his accomplishments will be eclipsed by nonsensical behavior.

Kanye West Gave Kids Free Yeezys In Uganda, Still Sunken

Kanye West is currently in Uganda and attempting to spread goodwill. The Sunken Place MC gave out free adidas Yeezys to the kids while visiting an orphanage in the city of Masulita in the East African nation. 

TMZ reports that Yeezy and Kim Kardashian got permission from Uganda’s Trump supporting President, Yoweri Museveni, to used his helicopter to fly to the charity event for kids. Kim and Ye, rocking day-glo fits, were greeted with cheers, even more so when they presented the free footwear.

Of course, West posted clips of the festivities on Twitter because it didn’t really happen if it isn’t documented on social media. We gotta give him credit for visiting the orphanage, though, respect.

Nevertheless, West has a LONG way to go after that Oval Office debacle, if he even cares.

T.I. Rips Into Kanye West Over His Meeting With Trump [VIDEO]

Kanye West’s latest meeting with Donald Trump has left a ton of people unsettled, including his peers like T.I. who has recorded music with the rapper. 

“Now I’ve been extremely patient and made it a point to not jump to any premature conclusions about Ye’& his antics… Partially due to the lessons learned from the outcome of other similar situations dealing wit my brother Wayne (which I admittedly mishandled a bit in hindsight) But now this shit is next level,futuristic Sambo,Hopping Bob, Stephen off Django ass shit Ye!!!! From what I can gather,” T.I. wrote in an Instagram post under video of Kanye’s rant in the White House. 

In case you missed it, Kanye West visited the White House yesterday (October 11) to discuss a slew of things ranging from black-on-black crime to unity to make the president look good. It was the last straw for T.I., who once supported Ye. 

“This is the most repulsive, disgraceful, embarrassing act of desperation & auctioning off of one’s soul to gain power I’ve ever seen,” he wrote, revealing that Kanye asked him to go to the White House with him. 

“If you behaved that spinelessly in my presence, I feel that I’d be compelled to slap de’ f**k outta you bro, for the people,” he said. “You’re a** kissing and bootlicking on a whole new level and I refuse to associate myself with something so vile, weak and inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of ALL OUR PEOPLE! At one time it was a pleasure to work alongside you… now, I’m ashamed to have ever been associated with you.”

T.I. also warned Yeezy fans to beware because “this is a play to put him in a position he’d like to see himself in.”

“As long as I’ve lived I’ve learned that it benefits a man nothing at all to gain the world, if to do so he must lose his soul,” he added. “We just saw Mr.West’s Soul on auction. If you listen closely you can hear the tears of our ancestors hit the floor. All I can say is I’ve reached my limits. This is my stop, I’m officially DONE! F**k Trump and his lil’ cookie boy.”

Kim Kardashian Shows Off Her Curves While Traveling with Husband Kanye West to Uganda

Kanye West has made good on a promise to take a trip to Africa — and he took his wife Kim Kardashian along with him.

The famous couple arrived at Uganda’s Entebbe International Airport on Friday and later checked into a local lodge with their daughter North.

In images published by TMZ and the Daily Mail, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 37, wears a monochromatic outfit featuring a grey shirt with a matching mini backpack and a pair of form-fitting bike shorts.

Adding a pop of color into his low-key ensemble, the rapper, 41, wore a blue sweatshirt with a purple cap.

Blending her parents’ style, North, 5, was seen in a pair of bright green pants with a matching top.

The couple plans to stay in Africa until Oct. 19, according to TMZ.

Earlier in October, West explained that he had pushed back the release of his album Yandhi in order to record in Africa.

“I didn’t finish it,” the rapper said during a TMZ Live interview, explaining that during a recent trip to Chicago he “felt this energy” and realized he needed “to go to what is known as Africa.”

He also remarked that he’d like to “have my kids in the studio and have my mic in the open so we can hear nature while we’re recording.”

Photos and videos shared on the popular Instagram account Team Kanye Daily indicate that the rapper has already set up a studio to finish recording the album, which is slated to be released on Nov. 23.

In the weeks leading up the famous family’s trip, West went on a number of public rants that have raised eyebrows and generated concern for his wellbeing.

Kim is very uncomfortable and unhappy with the whole situation,” a source previously told PEOPLE about the Kimoji creator, who shares daughters North and Chicago, 8 months, and son Saint, 2½, with West.

“She finds Kanye brilliant, so it makes her upset when he goes on these public rants and come across as someone who isn’t well,” added the source. “All she can do is hope that he calms down mentally soon.”

On Thursday afternoon, during a meeting with President Donald Trump in the Oval Office, West — who avidly supports and voted for the president in the 2016 election — claimed that he was “misdiagnosed” with bipolar disorder. (The rapper also recently revealed that he is “off medication” he had previously been taking to treat the disorder.)

Since West disclosed that he is no longer taking his medication, people in his inner circle have been “telling him that he needs to get back on his medication, that he’s not doing well, that he’s not making any sense,” an insider told PEOPLE earlier in October.

And while the Kardashians have been an unwavering support system to him, the source said that “the entire family is at the end of their ropes, and stuff like this won’t help.”

“They’re trying to help him get things where they should be, and it’s going to be that much harder now,” the source added. “It’s a sad day.”

T.I. Discusses Trap Music, Donald Trump And Kanye West In The Latest Interview

Variety just caught up with T.I. and had the most exciting interview about trap music, Donald Trump and Kanye West. This came just ahead of the much-awaited premiere of Tip and Tiny Harris’ show that’s set to begin on October 22nd.

When Variety asked Tip about why he started making trap music, he answered that he just wanted to become a voice for the voiceless.

‘There was a lot of party music at that time, a lot of glitz and glamor, and there was conscious music. Yes, there was music about the drug trade, but there wasn’t anything as vivid and real about the dealers, that elaborated on the life – to humanize it all in a way that “Trap Muzik” did,’ Tip said.

A post shared by TIP (@troubleman31) on

When Variety brought up Kanye West who went to the White House to discuss some issues with president Donald Trump, they mentioned the way in which Tip had previously described Kanye’s actions: repulsive, disgraceful, embarrassing and more.

The magazine told T.I. to explain how he really feels about the matter and here’s what he said:

‘To be honest, if something good comes of it, great. But you don’t just sell out a bunch of people to get nothing done. You don’t sell out a whole generation and a whole race of people to get nothing done. ‘

He also said that Kanye invited him as well at the meeting, but he refused and said that he is not a politician and more experienced people should go instead of him.

You can read the complete interview in Variety because it’s really interesting and sheds more light on how Tip feels about Kanye.

Kanye West’s Donald Trump Meeting Goes Predictably Off Script

(AP Photo/Evan Vucci)

 

WASHINGTON (AP) — Declaring that his red “MAGA” hat makes him “feel like Superman,” rapper Kanye West made a free-styling appearance in the Oval Office Thursday.

Ahead of a private lunch, President Donald Trump and West spoke with reporters as they sat across from each other at the Resolute desk. West dominated the conversation with a series of monologues that touched on social policy, mental health, endorsement deals and his support for the president.

 

“Trump is on his hero’s journey right now,” West said, tossing out an expletive to describe himself.

West said that many people believe that, if you’re black, you have to be a Democrat and said he was pressured not to wear his red “Make America Great Again” hat. But he said “this hat, it gives me power.”

West credited Trump with preventing a war with North Korea and encouraged Trump to swap his usual Air Force One for a hydrogen-powered plane. West also argued that Trump deserved more respect, saying: “if he don’t look good, we don’t look good.”

During a pause in West’s comments, Trump said: “I tell you what that was pretty impressive.” He also described West as a “smart cookie.”

The rapper also spoke against stop-and-frisk policing policies, which Trump recently expressed support for. Trump said he was open to other ideas.

Trump recently tweeted praise for West, who closed a “Saturday Night Live” show wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat and delivering an unscripted pro-Trump message after the credits rolled.

West is married to reality television star Kim Kardashian West, who pushed Trump to grant a pardon for a drug offender this year.

Naturally, folks all over the political map had to weigh in:

Trump’s Biggest Fan, Kanye West, Heads to the White House Today

Drew Angerer

One of the many baffling phenomena of the Trump era has been the readiness of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to hang out with the president, despite his overt and well documented racism and sexism.

The process will reach its peak today when Kanye West drops in for lunch and then witnesses the signing of a new bill to update the way music royalties are paid to take account of the impact of streaming services.  

Kim, of course, has already called into the White House for her photo op with Trump (who once said she had a ‘fat ass‘) as part of her successful campaign to secure a pardon for a grandmother caught up in drug conspiracy.

SNL’s Pete Davidson Slams Kanye West For Pro-Trump Rant [Video]

Last week, Kanye West delivered a pro-Trump speech on SNL, and on Saturday night, the show responded via Pete Davidson, who clowned the rapper’s off-air MAGA rant at the end of the “Weekend Update” segment.

“So many times I talk to a white person and [they] say, ‘How could you like Trump, he’s racist?’ Well, if I was concerned about racism I would’ve moved out of America a long time ago,” West told the Saturday Night Live audience. He also pledged to run for president in 2020.

Pete encouraged West to take his meds — “Davidson admitted that he’s on medication as well — and capped off the segment by donning a “Make Kanye 2006 Again” hat,” Page Six writes.

On Saturday, Davidson called West’s speech “one of the worst, most awkward things I’ve ever seen here. We all had to stand behind him,” he continued as video of the speech played, “I’m on the left [his head is down in the video], and then I’m like, ‘I want a career,’ so I leave” the stage.

He also addressed West’s claim that “they” tried to “bully” him out of wearing the MAGA hat.

“So Kanye was wearing a ‘MAGA’ hat, and he started by saying people backstage tried to bully him into not wearing it,” Davidson said. “He wore it all week. Nobody told him not to wear it — I wish would have suggested that it might upset some people, like your wife, or, like, every black person, ever.”

“Kanye is a genius,” he continued, “but a musical genius, like Joey Chestnut is a hot-dog eating genius. I don’t want to hear Joey Chestnut’s opinions about things that aren’t hot dog related!”

Davidson then asked West to resume taking his medication.

“Kanye, I know you’re like, ‘Yo, this is the real me, I’m off the meds’,” which West has said on at least two occasions. “Take ‘em! There’s no shame in the medicine game! I’m on ‘em — take ‘em! if I ever got on a plane and the pilot said, ‘I just want you all to know this is the real me flying,’” I’d jump out!

“Being mentally ill is not an excuse to act like a jackass,” he concluded. “Seriously: one time I stopped taking my meds, and I bit my mom. But it’s all good because I bought her a house.”

He finished by putting on a “Make Kanye 2006 Again” hat… watch the clip above.

Kanye West’s Basketball Sneaker Banned From NBA

National Basketball Association league officials confirmed that players will be allowed to wear any sneaker they wish this upcoming season, regardless of color. Any sneaker that is, except the basketball sneaker created by Kanye West.

In prior seasons it was mandatory for players to wear league-compliant sneakers or they would face a hefty fine. This will be the first time since Adam Silver became NBA commissioner in 2014 that players have their choice of footwear.

According to an ESPN report the stringent rule change is an effort on the NBA’s behalf to allow players to express themselves while on the court. Until now, the rule on player footwear was that all sneakers worn on the court had to be 51% white or black with minimal team color accent to top it off, depending on home and visiting teams.

Rapper Kanye West, who is in partnership with Adidas for his Yeezy product line, took to his Instagram account to debut a first look at his “YZY BSKTBL” sneaker.

(Instagram)

 

Prior to this model, all of West’s sneaker designs have been for lifestyle wear and not for athletic purposes. This is the first time that the Yeezy brand is venturing into sports footwear since he released his first sneaker in 2015.

However, according to industry sources, the NBA is banning the current version of Kanye’s sneaker. The move is not because of the colors in the sneaker or because of his recent controversial comments made on social media.

The ban is because of the shoe’s gleaming, reflective-material heel. The NBA fears that the 3M material would be distracting to the crowd and also for those watching the game at home.

The Yeezy basketball sneaker was supposed to be worn during the regular season by Adidas signees like Nick Young, Donovan Mitchell, and Iman Shumpert, to name a few. With the ban on the current model of Kanye’s basketball sneaker, there is no word yet if Adidas will make the necessary adjustment to appease the NBA.
