Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding day is drawing closer and according to reports, the couple is still trying to get their wedding party in order. A few months back, rumors began circulating that Beyoncé declined Kim’s offer to be a bridesmaid—a rumor which Kim’s camp vehemently denied. But now, there are additional rumors floating around about the Carters and Kimye’s wedding party.
Sources tell the Daily Star that Kanye asked Jay to be his best man in the upcoming ceremony. Initially, insiders say Jay proudly accepted the best man title, but only under the condition that he would not appear on camera for “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”
“Jay is Kanye’s closest friend so he wants him to be best man. Jay agreed initially but had one condition – under no circumstances can there be any reality TV shows filming him, his wife, Beyoncé, or daughter, Blue Ivy, during the ceremony.”
“The thought of popping up in KUWTK mortifies Beyoncé,” the source continued. “She purposefully keeps herself away from trashy TV and isn’t prepared to lower her standards for anyone, or any occasion.”
The source goes on to imply that the ceremony will be filmed for KUWTK, as E! executives are doing everything they can to seal the deal.
“Bosses at E! are desperate to get the nuptials on air, and will pay millions to make it happen.”
As a result, insiders say Jay and Bey will not be participating. Of course, this is all speculation and nothing has been confirmed as of yet. I suppose we’ll have to wait until the big day to see what’s really going down.
Doesn’t it seem like Kanye West is always in the news? If not because of a controversial statement, it is usually because of a business deal. He just revealed that popular music video director Hype Williams, who directed the film Belly, will direct the film version West’s Yeezus. (Trailer here.) Now comes word that his DONDA will partner with Jay Z’s Roc Nation.
DONDA, which West describes as a multi-discipline design and content company, has inked a deal with Roc Nation to manage all DONDA Music, reports The Grio.
The partnership will focus on West’s international recording brand and worldwide touring ventures, according to a statement from Roc Nation distributor, Def Jam.
DONDA was formed in 2009 during which time West collaborated with fashion house Louis Vuitton for his own footwear collection. West “officially branded DONDA in 2011 with the groundbreaking packaging and tour design for Watch The Throne,” the statement continues.
Then in 2012, through DONDA, West introduced a cinema concept–the 7-Screen Surround Vision experience in Cannes, France with the short film Cruel Summer. The short was the visual companion to the G.O.O.D. Music album.
And in 2013, “DONDA oversaw the concept and design for West’s minimalist YEEZUS album packaging and groundbreaking global launch, including a guerilla-marketing campaign, the ‘New Slaves’ projections,” reports the website. Among DONDA clients are Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Big Sean, Pusha T. DONDA provided album packaging, staging, music videos and content for such artists.
There’s being a fan and then there’s taking things too far. These fans decided to show their undying loyalty to their favorite celebrities by professing their love in ink…unfortunately.
The Ciara neck tattoo
She may be engaged to Atlanta singer/songwriter Future, and thus taken, but that didn’t stop one man from getting Ciara’s face tattooed on his neck. The die hard C-squad fan club member showed off his ink on social media and the soon-to-be mom reposted it on her instagram page with a shout-out to her faithful follower. No word yet how Future feels about the tattoo.
Kanye West may seem larger than life most of the time, but every once in a while, he reveals that he is, indeed, simply a man.
West put away the theatrics for a moment while performing at Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun Casino on Friday (Feb. 21) and got real with the audience, divulging his biggest regret in life.
“These past 10 years have been amazing,” he told the crowd. “There’s been some ups and downs. I made some mistakes and I’ve made some accomplishments. There’s only one thing I regret,” he continued. “There’s only one thing I wish I could change out of everything that’s ever happened. I wish that my mother could’ve met my daughter.”

Duets bring out the best in most artists, but there’s something special about it when the collaboration is between a veteran and a newbie in the music game. Recently, Lupe Fiasco posted a picture with Charlie Wilson, letting folks know that that they would be teaming up. It’s just one of many collaborations Wilson has done with rappers and singers (including Kanye West and Snoop Dogg) over the last few years. With that in mind, let’s check out some of the most interesting duets with the veterans and the rookies. What are some of your faves?
Beyoncé is making sure that you haven’t quite sobered up yet. She’s released the remix to “Drunk In Love” and if you thought you knew way to much about how her and Hov get busy in the bedroom, now you get to hear how Kanye and Kim get down too. You can’t say we didn’t warn you, the lyrics get a little raunchy:
“That cowgirl, you reverse that cowgirl
You reverse, you reverse, and I impregnated your mouth, girl, ooooh
That’s when I knew you could be my spouse, girl”
Thanks Kanye. That sex tape she released with Ray-J clearly didn’t give enough detail about how Kim gets it popping.
The second shot of the hit single obviously left a bad taste in West’s ex Amber Roses’s mouth. She took to Twitter to express her disaproval posting:
“F-ck! My favorite song is ruined. SMH!”
Beyonce’s also released a teaser vid which features her frolicking around like a cowboy dressed in chaps.
Beyonce is clearly winning as always but is it us or is that whole team doing the most as far as the fight for the freaky title? We almost want to say, “Bey, you don’t have to do this.” Take a listen to the remix and the video teaser if you’re still curious about what Kanye and Kim are working with:

Not only is he celebrating the 10th anniversary of his dynamic debut CD, The College Dropout, but his new $245 sneakers are a hit. A surprise, since West parted ways with Nike, opting to partner with Adidas instead. On Sunday at 1 p.m. EST, without any pre-promotion and via Twitter Nike debuted West’s new Air Yeezy 2 sneakers and the shoe sold out in 10 minutes and almost immediately started to pop up on eBay and other sites going for outrageous amounts.
“The most eye-popping asking price thus far is the £10,000 (about $16.4 million) UK-based eBay auction — a figure that’s slightly higher than the entire 2013 GDP of the country of Georgia,” reports The Huffington Post
A site in the U.S. was auctioning the shoes for $15,000. And there are plenty of bidders.
According to Pitchfork, the shoes are hot since the Air Yeezy 2 is probably the rapper’s last product under his Nike deal. West wasn’t pleased with the way Nike was doing business. He told Morning Riot, “Nike will tell store owners, ‘Okay, if you want these Red Octobers, you gotta take these ten other Nike’s.’” The original Air Yeezy hit stores in 2009.
No matter how you cut it, West has another hit on his hands.
Technology can be a beautiful thing because it provides a connection between a celebrity and his or her fans, but in the wrong hands, technology can expose a star in ways they never intended. Unfortunately, these 15 celebs found themselves in the middle of nude photo scandals.
He may be Kim Kardashian’s man and baby daddy now but a few years ago, Kanye West was a single man on the prowl. Back in 2010 the “All of the Lights” rapper allegedly snapped a picture of his family jewels and sent it out to multiple women. West wasn’t completely unclothed in the photo. He had on a pair of boxers but his private part was provocatively exposed. The owner’s natural response was to shop the nude pics to various media outlets for the highest price.

Remember that guy who Kanye West allegedly assaulted a few weeks ago in Beverly Hills after he yelled racial obscenities at Kim Kardashian? Well it turns out Kanye’s attorney Shawn Holley and the young man’s legal representation have already met and agreed on a settlement.
According to TMZ, due to the civil settlement, the man has decided not to proceed with a criminal prosecution. What has not been revealed, however, is whether or not the D.A. will proceed and charge Kanye with battery anyway. But it’s believed that since the D.A. no longer has a cooperating victim, the case will be closed. Sources say the alleged victim will receive more than $250,000 from the “Bound 2″ rapper due to the settlement. An exact figure is unknown. Representatives on behalf of Kanye have yet to comment on the settlement.
Many are questioning whether or not it’s fair that the alleged victim is being awarded with anything, especially considering that racial slurs that he reportedly hurled at Kim about Kanye. But I suppose the First Amendment gives the alleged victim the freedom to pretty much say whatever he wants. Kanye, on the other hand, kind of broke the law when he put his hands on the guy.
