A Mirror-lined Nursery

While most internet wags are spoofing or critiquing the upcoming April cover of Voguemagazine, featuring Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, another photo, released from the shoot, taken by Annie Leibovitz, has caught my eye....more

Kim, Kanye And Vogue: Betrayal Or Brilliant?

I'm not the person to ask about the history of Vogue, or its editorial mission.  What I do know I mostly got from watching the "Devil Wears Prada."  I do read it from time to time, although reading it isn't really a fair description either; it's more like I turn the glossy pages oooing at clothes I'll never get to wear because they are astronomically expensive and appropriate for absolutely no event in my life....more

Kim & Kanye's Nude 'L’Officiel Hommes' Cover: Isn't She Still Married?

Say what you want about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, but they sure make one smoking hot couple! The parents-to-be showed some passion on the cover of French magazine L’Officiel Hommes. They appear to be nude, so it certainly leaves a lot to the imagination the things we can’t see.  Some people say that Kim shouldn’t pose nude and that she is going back on her recently revealed ‘privacy policy’ where she vowed to keep their lives less public. Um, okay....more
Seriously? She's all upset about still being married to another man when her baby is born but ...more

Like Kids, Pets, Africa? There’s a Charity for That!

I hate to sound like a broken record - but - everybody isn't qualified to run a charity. It is not necessary to start your own corporation to accomplish something or to steer funding to a specific need. At least once a day I receive a call from someone who wants to start a charity to fulfill some personal need or to accomplish a specific project. Others feel they need to do so to appear philanthropic or to use celebrity power to create awareness and large sums for a righteous cause....more

When rapper Lil Wayne was released from prison last year after being incarcerated for eight months on a gun possession charge , Hip-Hop media outlets and his fans welcomed him home with open arms. ...more

Representations of Women in Kanye West's "Monster" Video

How is it that Kanye West, an intelligent artist very much in control of his image, didn't think about the repercussions of representing women in such a horrific manner in his video for "Monster?" What I find more disturbing is that he DID think about it, and proceeded with this video anyway....more

Almost anyway; I read this post beginning with "Bikini-clad" and ending with "lap" and just ...more

Why Kanye West and I Should Share a "Best Friends Forever" Necklace

Kanye West and I should be best friends.  And if you ask me, we basically are.  (When I say basically I mean that 808’s and Heartbreak once sat in my car cd player for 8 months straight.)  While he gets a gets a bad rap for being…just plain ridiculous, I think he knows what he’s doing and is pretty misunderstood. — This is where we differ, as I never have any idea what I’m doing, so no wonder I’m misunderstood.  Any”I’maLetYouFinishBut”, I hated his latest song when I saw him perform it on the VMAs.  I had high expectations and stayed up way past my 9:30pm bedtime just to see it.  It started off great…I don’t hate the red outfit (i do, however, hate the deep v-neck shirt. i don’t care if you’re Christian Dior himself. not a good look for any man.)…and then…the chorus.  I shook my head and said “really?” about 40 times out loud.  Then, I listened to it about 100 times more and realized that Kanye and I may or may not be bffs and/or long lost fraternal (naturally) twins.  ...more

The Twitterverse Collectively Gasps: John Mayer Deletes Account

But if John Mayer can up and leave his 3.7 million followers, what is to say Ashton Kutcher couldn't follow suit? Or Kanye? Or ... I dare not even think it because it would literally tear apart the Internet ... what if Oprah yanked away her 140-character life-changing exclamations? Building up a large numbers of followers simply isn't enough to protect against a person deciding in favour of account deleting. ...more

I wouldn't mind if he went away altogether.more

Taylor Swift & Kanye West: White Women, Tears, and Coded Images

2010 MTV Video Music Awards - More VMA Video Okay, so I think we all know about Taylor Swift being interrupted last year at the VMA's right? Right. Kanye West caught all kinds of hell for it, and even for his subsequent apologies. So, then why am I linking to the video from this year's show? You can't convince me that you don't want to talk about the past when you do a performance all about it. ...more

OMG- Thank You!! I totally agree!!
