When Did We Stop Caring About The Well-Being of Celebrities?

It’s a sad day when anyone has reached the point of complete mental and physical exhaustion, but it seems like it would be much worse to have to go through it in the public eye.  Since Kanye West’s recent meltdown, the world seems to be split in its reaction.  Some actually care, while others have made it clear that they don’t.  This brings up an interesting question: When did we stop caring about the well-being of celebrities?  Continue reading

Is Tyga Throwing Shade at Drake or Just Being Honest in Vibe Interview?

image

The latest issue of Vibe magazine features YMCMB’s Rack City creator, Tyga.  Since joining Wayne’s all-star team, we haven’t heard much of anything from him and now we may know the reasons why.  According to Tyga himself, he doesn’t mesh well with his fellow label mates.  He explains:

Is Young Money a part of the creative process on this album?
Nah. I tend to distance myself from them.

Are you trying to break out on your own?
Yeah, I’m tryna’ go independent. I don’t really get along with Drake. I don’t really get along with Nicki.

I don’t like Drake as a person. He’s just fake to me. I like his music; you know what I’m saying? I think his music is good, but we’re all different people. We were forced together and it was kinda’ like we were forcing relationships together. It is what it is. But I been friends with Chris [Brown] for like six years. That’s my real genuine friend. We hang out all the time. He lives up the street from me, so we don’t just do music we hang. I think being signed to Young Money, everybody felt like they had to force a relationship ‘cause Wayne put us together. At the end of the day the reason why I signed to Young Money is because of Wayne. Not because of Drake, not because of Nicki. It was because of Wayne and my relationship with him. I try to be cool with everybody, but sometimes, everybody just has different personalities, motives, and different characters. When you realize that, you realize that’s not a place where you want to continue to grow.

I don’t consider that shade, I think he’s just being brutally honest.  Tyga is frustrated artistcally and who wouldn’t be in his position?  

The good thing is, Kanye West has taken the hungry rapper under his wing and produced some tracks off of his latest album, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty.  Tyga is already getting some buzz about his new project since leaking one of the Kanye West produced tracks and has threatened to release the entire LP if his label doesn’t set a release date.

It will be interesting to see this drama unfold; I just want to hear some good music.

I Stalk Kim K’s Instagram! [Beauty]

Yes, yes, yes! I admit it! I absolutely,  without a doubt,  unapologetically,  stalk Kim Kardashian’s Instagram page.    She has some hot fashion photos, as well as, shots of that gorgeous baby of her’s.  I mean, yeah…oooook some hate her, but I think I’m starting to love to hate her and hate to love her at the same damn time.  When is she not serving it?!  All of the below photos (and above) were snatched from her Instagram (@kimkardashian)… now do you see why I don’t feel guilty?!

Did Drake Go Too Far During His Latest Rant?

Drake

All of you know that I am a die-hard Drake fan and secretly believe that we will get married one day or at least have a very hot and steamy love affair.  However, putting my personal feelings aside, his latest rant not only gives off an heir of Kanye West-like behavior, but it seems a little misplaced and ill-timed.  Drake was slated to grace the cover of Rolling Stone, but the untimely death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman put those plans on hold, as the magazine paid homage to the late actor in their latest issue by giving him the cover.  Of course, Drake is entitled to feel “some type of way,” but come on; let’s at least be classy about our venting sessions.  The great rapper has also been accused of slamming Kanye West (how ironic) during his interview by calling some of his music “questionable”.

In true celebrity fashion, Drake hit the Tweet button and expressed his emotions by sending messages out for the world to read.  His tweets went something like this… “I never commented on Yeezus for my interview portion of Rolling Stone.  They also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue…I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil…I’m done doing interviews for magazines. I just want to give my music to the people. That’s the only way my message gets across accurately.”

Drake was on a roll I guess because he also addressed the infamous Macklemore text that was sent to Kendrick Lamar after he was snubbed at the Grammy’s.  Drake stated, “I was like, ‘You won. Why are you posting your text message?  Just chill. Take your W, and if you feel you didn’t deserve it, go get better – make better music…’ It felt cheap. It didn’t feel genuine. Why do that? Why feel guilt? You think those guys would pay homage to you if they won?…To name just Kendrick? That sh*t made me feel funny.  No, in that case, you robbed everybody.  We all need text messages!”

It will be interesting to see the unraveling that takes place after his interview is addressed by all parties involved or those effected by his words.  I can’t fault him for being honest, but I do believe that he could have used better judgement in bringing Hoffman into the rant.

This just so happens to be my favorite track off of the Yeezus album!  Kanye West paid a visit to the Ellen Show and premiered his new video for Bound 2.  The  video…well, I will let you all judge for yourself, but it features Kim Kardashian who appears to be topless for the entire thing.  Check it out!
