Late Friday afternoon, word broke that Ray J was about to release “I Hit It First,” a new track that put his (s)ex Kim Kardashian on blast. We all know that Ray J almost certainly can’t back up that specific claim, but he’s not letting that stop him. Today, he released a 30-second snippet of the song to TMZ; you can listen to it above.
Ryan Gosling has a mighty sexy plus-one; so does Brad Pitt. But when you’re talking about the flyest wives and girlfriends, ever — we’re talking Beyonce, folks — they aren’t found in Hollywood, they’re in hip hop.
Fairytales do come true in their own time. Fifteen years ago 60 million viewers tuned in to watch a young Brandy play Cinderella in the television adaptation of the Disney cartoon movie. For Brandy, real life is far greater than the Cinderella story. A newly engaged Brandy was glowing on New Year’s in Vegas when she chatted with PopStop TV about her engagement to Ryan Press. The R&B beauty also had some advice for Kim Kardashian on motherhood. Read more…
Kimye is having a baby. And Jesus wept. Somewhere Ray J is crafting his perfectly shady congratulatory tweet, meanwhile Amber Rose is singing “thank God I dodged a bullet” in her best Beyonce octave. Kim is still married to Kris Humphries. Maybe that’s why Kanye shouted out his “Perfect Bitch” at his last Revel performance in Atlantic City by referring to her as his “baby mama.” A proud mommy moment for Kim. Read more…
We’re in Thanksgiving recovery mode, so it’s time for a special Black Friday Face-Off! You may be nursing a raging feast belly after attempting to induce an L-Tryptophan coma to stave off squirm-worthy questions about “marrying that nice boy you’re living with” (rinse down turkey with wine and repeat). Or you just said no to traditional T-Day and are recovering from the hangover that accompanies watching ThanksKilling with friends and stuffing your face (more bacon, less familial judgment). Fall Out Boy‘s “Thnks fr th Mmrs” and Dido‘s “Thank You” respectively fit either scenario. Whose video reflects your Black Friday mood best?
Waka Flocka is not the person to ask a question to if you don’t want an unfiltered answer. No matter the subject. In his recent interview with 105.1′s The Breakfast Club we learned there is one topic he will opt for the safe “no comment” answer. And that topic is Kanye and Kim Kardashian. Everything else is fair game. Read more…
Kanye is always up to something. He may not have attended last night’s MTV VMAs, missing his very pregnant ex-girlfriend Amber Rose‘s baby bump reveal, but he did drop his latest single “Clique” with Big Sean and Jay-Z from the forthcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation album Cruel Summer. Big Sean opens with his “young player from the D” flow that has carved out a lane all of his own. His witty wordplay gets you amped. It’s a great segue into Jay and Ye’s verses. Jay does his typical braggadocio about being bossy, “I ain’t talking Kelis.” He couldn’t go the entire verse without mentioning drug dealing, something he hasn’t sold in over a decade. Where he shines is his brief sped up flow rapping about numbers. Read more…
While MTV VMA performers rehearse one last time, attendees put the finishing touches on their red carpet ensembles and viewers plan their watch parties, Kanye West backs out of attending tonight’s show because…wait for it…his girlfriend Kim Kardashian is unable to attend. Oh, Kimye. That’s sweet, we guess. Per the Daily Mail, Yeezy decided not to go to the show that is hosted in LA due to his reality star girlfriend’s previous engagement to promote her perfume at Fashion Night Out in NYC. Despite “Mercy” being nominated for best video of the year and best editing, Ye doesn’t want to attend alone. Let’s just go ahead and admit that this takes inseparable to a whole other level.

“I never was much of a romantic,” sang Kanye West on “Runaway,” the centerpiece track on his epic 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Well nonsense, we say! You’re plenty romantic, Yeezy. And here are our favorite love-lorn lyrics from all through your career to prove it. Whether it was inspired by current flame Kim Kardashian, or past lady-friends like Amber Rose or Selita Ebanks, Kanye is a modern poet spinning rhymes that will melt any woman’s heart. Just today he dropped the track “Clique,” in which he raps about Kim’s career-launching sex-tape with Ray-J. And that’s just the start of his many romantic maneuvers in song. Check out the list below and see what we mean!
10. “If we die in each others’ arms/Still get laid in the afterlife”
- “Lost In The World” on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010)
Romance Factor: Here Kanye takes a very practical (and sexy) look at the concept of eternity.
9. “I’m Yeezy, she said, ‘Hi, I’m Maria’/No, you an angel/You wave ‘Hi’ to Aaliyah”
-”Erase Me” on Kid Kudi’s Man On The Moon 2: The Legend Of Mr. Rager (2010)
Romance Factor: Yeezy once again plays on the more practical side of the afterlife, plus gets a sweet shout-out to the late R&B singer.
8. “Feeling like Katrina with no FEMA/Like Martin with no Gina”
-”Flashing Lights” on Graduation (2007)
Romance Factor: It’s not good enough to compare missing your ladylove to a natural disaster/government SNAFU. You have to following it up with a simile referencing the 90s sitcom Martin to really tug at the heartstrings.
7. “Take your diamonds and throw ‘em up like you’re bulimic”
-”Diamonds From Sierra Leone” on Late Registration (2005)
Romance Factor: With one line, Kanye shows that he knows how to treat his woman right, and at the same time so very very wrong.
