In a healthy relationship, you have to trust your partner to do what’s best for the relationship. If you really believe that you’re a priority to somebody, then you shouldn’t get to decide how and when they show that. That’s why ultimatums aren’t fair: you tell someone if they don’t do things your way, then they lose everything. Ultimatums usually mean you ask someone to give up their values or belief system, or compromise something that’s unfair for you. The hard reality is that if somebody has to do something that pains them, or damages their other relationships, their career, or their family life to be with you, then you’re not right for them, and they’re not right for you. Here are 15 demands that are never fair to make on your partner.
Perhaps his new paternal instincts has his energy on a nervous level because this guy just goes off on just about anyone who acknowledges him in the street and takes a picture.
On Friday, Kanye was entering Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) when a TMZ photographer approached him to do his job as a member of the paparazzi. But then the photographer did the unspeakable: he opened his mouth and directed his words toward Kanye. As Kanye walked into LAX, the TMZ photog told him that he was a big fan of his music.
That wasn’t the best thing for him to do. Kanye clapped back at him rather quickly:
“I appreciate that but don’t talk. That’s fine but don’t talk…to me. I don’t want to hear paparazzi talk to me or anybody I know. No, just don’t talk. And don’t talk to anyone I know…at all And tell everybody never talk to anyone that anyone knows. Don’t talk to themselves. Don’t talk ever again.”
What, sir? You’re trying to tell people not to even talk to themselves?! He has clearly taken this “Yeezus” thing too far.
But it didn’t stop there. The guy followed Kanye into the airport (because that’s what they do) and asked him about a possible Watch The Throne 2 album with Jay-Z. The unmitigated gall of the photographer to ask such a question, right?
Well, yes, according to Kanye’s reaction, he was totally out of line. The photographer didn’t heed to Kanye’s word about not speaking and so, Kanye lunged at the man and his camera.
We doubt TMZ tries to bring charges against Kanye for his mini-attack (and although we can’t see it, his security probably pulled him back before it went even further) but we’re sure they’re not pleased.
Gosh, Kanye is always in his little celebrity feelings. If he hates the paparazzi portion of fame (and let’s keep it real, it only got to this level when he got with Kim), perhaps he should move to some remote island and be all alone.
Jenny from the Block is starting to act more like Jenny from the Bourgeoisie these days. Though we know the Bronx-born Latina is hardly “on the six (train)” anymore, it seems she still hasn’t quite got what it takes to demand a private plane just to do a show. That’s the demand that reportedly got the singer/dancer/actress booted from a huge gig recently.
As the Huffington Post tells it:
The singer and actress was in the running for the opening ceremonies of India’s Premier League cricket tournament, an event the New York Post says comes with a viewing audience of 60 million people.
The massive opportunity, however, seems to have evaporated when organizers received Lopez’ rider. Among the big asks that reportedly came through manager Benny Medina: a private plane and a host of hotel rooms for her cadre of stylists and handlers.
Among those handlers were a number of assistants and even a personal chef, and according to one of the NY Post‘s sources, the audacity of that demand turned officials at the Pepsi IPL all the way off.
“The demands made on behalf of Jennifer were outrageous. She effectively priced herself out of the event. It was an idiotic move because the audience for this event is huge. It’s like the Super Bowl halftime show. Last year it drew 56 million viewers.”
Jenny’s rep is denying that these demands are what caused the singer-dancer to back out, claiming she was simply “busy,” but this isn’t exactly the first time we’ve heard J Lo is getting a little too big for her britches. According to the Post, “In 2001 she arrived for a BBC interview with a 90-person entourage and ordered nine dressing rooms for the group.” And remember when Wendy Williams said Jennifer doesn’t allow anyone else to go into a public bathroom with her at the same time? Sounds like she could’ve jumped on a “Diva” remix with Beyonce and been dead serious about that line “I’m a diva best, believe her.”
In this case, one Latino’s loss is another’s gain, as Pitbull has been chosen to take J. Lo’s place. In response to this news, Huff Po hilariously stated, “it’s hard to know if J.Lo or cricket fans are more deserving of your pity,” but I say congrats to Pitbull. Who ever thought he’d become so big globally? J Lo might wanna take a lesson. These aren’t exactly her Selena Bidi Bidi Bom Bom days.
The multiple homes, plushy cars, and extravagant jewelry pieces are fabulous, sure. But possibly the best part about being a celebrity is having the ability – dare I say right – to demand whatever is desired no matter how ridiculous, and not be given side eye for it. Remember that story about the 1980’s rock group, Van Halen, demanding a candy bowl full of M&M’s with all of the brown ones removed? Well that little request is piddly compared to some of the things these divas have demanded. Click through to find out.
Diva is the female version of a hustla… but not just any hustla if you’re Beyoncé. This diva demands a dressing room temperature set precisely at 78 degrees Fahrenheit, chicken wings seasoned with cayenne pepper, and Pepsi-products only; per her endorsement contract. And for the poor person(s) in charge of fulfilling these demands: they had better be sure not to look or speak to Beyoncé – another of her demands.
