Kanye West Goes In On Wiz Khalifa: “You Stole Your Whole Sh*t From Cudi”

Kanye West’s decision to rename his new album WAVES didn’t go down so well in some circles (no pun intended) last night. Wiz Khalifa in particular was pretty vocal about it, suggesting that Kanye stole the, well, wave of Mr. Wavie Crockett himself, Max B.

Clearly tweets have been watching, because Kanye clapped back at Wiz (who is the ex of his ex, lest we forget) with an absolute assault of scathing tweets (plus a Kim K emoji, for good measure) this afternoon.

Wiz responded earlier on in Kanye’s Twitter rant, writing back, “KK is weed fool. Reason’s why your not wavy. Go bacc to Swish.” However, he’s yet to respond to the more recent — and more personal — tweets from Kanye that dragged Amber Rose and her son, Sebastian, into the conversation.

Baby Joy! Tyra Banks Welcomes A Son Via Surrogate

Tyra Banks Baby Boy Surrogate

The supermodel and her husband are the proud parents of a little boy.

Tyra Banks is a mom!

The 42-year-old supermodel announced that she and her boyfriend, Erik Asla are the proud parents of a baby boy, born via surrogate.

“The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here,” she wrote on Instagram with a picture of a baby’s hat. “He’s got my fingers and big eyes and his daddy Erik’s mouth and chin. As we thank the angel of a woman that carried our miracle baby boy for us, we pray for everyone who struggles to reach this joyous milestone.”

Banks then revealed the baby’s name: “York Banks Asla, welcome to the world.”

The former FABLife host, spoke passionately about wanting to become a mother.

“We’re kind of going through this similar thing with IVF,” Banks said to Chrissy Teigen on the show when she discussed her own fertility struggle. “And, you know, putting needles in your tummy every day and having to come to work and smile when you feel like you want to throw up and lay down — I can’t believe I’m saying this right now!”

Baby York is the first child for the couple.


Rihanna Shares Selfie Listening to ‘ANTI,’ Wearing $9K Headphones



Only Rihanna could get away with wearing a golden headphone crown that retails for nearly $9,000. The pop star, whose fans are eagerly awaiting ANTI, her next album release, took to Twitter on Monday to share a selfie of herself listening to it. Clearly such a special occasion called for an equally special listening device.

Cue a set of golden, crystal-studded headphones attached to a gigantic crown. Because when you’re Rihanna, why not? Dolce & Gabbana is the designer behind the opulent madness. Their spring 2016 runway show was headpiece-heavy and featured model after model wearing intricate bejeweled crowns, colorful headscarves, turbans and even, yes, studded headphones.

Oftentimes the crazy accessories that appear on the runway don’t make it onto boutique shelves, but the nappa leather, Swarovski crystal– and pearl-crusted headphones RiRi’s rocking are for sale on D&G’s website for $8,895. Express shipping, however, is free. What a deal.



Chyna Kardashian?! BlacChyna x Rob Kardashian Official! #BlacRob

Social Media is going crazy since news released that Blac Chyna who is Tyga Baby Ma and Kylie Man… (Messy) Yes and Rob Karsahian and Blac Chyna is currently an item since Monday when E!News Broke the news via Twitter.


Rob Kardashian Confirms That Blac Chyna Is His New Bae…But Is She Using Him To Get Revenge?

By now, we’ve all seen Blac Chyna’s lovey-dovey photo cuddling with what appeared to be Rob Kardashian’s tatted-up arm that sent twitter into an uproar earlier today.

Well it looks like the pic was more than Chyna being super petty — although that certainly seems to have been a part of her plan. The people who know the Kardashians best, E! News, were able to confirm that newly slimming-down Rob is 100% official with Blac Chyna and cool about the fact that we all know now:

Rob Kardashian is turning it all around in 2016.

In addition to getting back into shape after receiving his diabetes diagnosis, the reclusive Keeping Up With the Kardashian star also seems to have found a new romance. E! News can confirm that Rob is dating Blac Chyna, but it’s a tad complicated.

As for how Rob and Chyna made it official despite his tendency to stay indoors over the past year, the source tells us, “She and Rob have known each other for a while and she had been staying in touch.”

Well, yeah. They’ve ALL known Chyna for a while…


Either way, Rob’s friends and of course his family are more than a little concerned about his new relationship. They seem to think that Chyna is using those crazy cakes of hers to manipulate Rob while he’s at a low point, all so she can get her ultimate revenge on Kylie Jenner. Via TMZ:

Sources tell us Rob’s close friends and family members tell us he’s dealing with so much right now — his ongoing weight issues and his recent diabetes diagnosis — and they think BC made her move now, because his guard is down.

We’re told they think Chyna really only wants 2 things: publicity and to get back at Kylie Jenner for hooking up with her baby daddy, Tyga.

They’re all for Rob “having some fun” — but they just hope he sees BC for what she is.

Interesting. However, Rob is a grown azz man (and we are SURE he and Chyna are doing some grown azz things together), so we have a hard time believing that he’s somehow unaware of what he’s doing.

What the Kardashian klan NEED to concern themselves with is the possibility of Chyna bearing another Kardashian offspring. We’re sure that her giving birth to Kylie’s next niece or nephew would make every last member of that family sick…

Hit the flip to take a closer look at what Rob is out here risking it all for.”
