The Kim Kardashian Vogue Cover is Here

Like we said — what Kanye West wants, Kanye West gets. After months of pestering Anna Wintour to put his boo Kim Kardashian on the cover of Vogue, it has finally happened. Of course Kanye being Kanye, he couldn’t resist putting himself on the front too.

Some people might call a reality TV star gracing the cover of Vogue the apocalypse. Others might refer to it as the end of days.

We choose to call this “Oh snap, Kim K one bad bitch.”

Bill O’Reilly: Jay-Z and Kanye West are a ‘Disease’

Bill O’Reilly, the best journalist ever according to Bill O’Reilly, knows why America’s youth is struggling: The dreaded rap music. Speaking to Valerie Jarrett, a senior advisor to President Obama, O’Reilly said that Jay-Z and Kanye West are a “disease” and simply need to “knock it off.”

“You have to attack the fundamental disease if you want to cure it,” said O’Reilly. “You’re gonna have to get people like Jay-Z, Kanye West — all these gangsta rappers — to knock it off.”

Lord knows that everything Jay has made since the Black Album has been trash and West’s Yeezus was awful, but we don’t exactly want them to stop creating music.

Maybe that’s not what O’Reilly meant. The Fox News host was definitely confused, as both Jay and West hardly qualify as “gangsta rappers.” So maybe O’Reilly was just rambling and tossed out the first two black people he could think of to blame for our nation’s problems. Yeah, that’s probably it.

Today co-host Savannah Guthrie wins the award for most practical bit of pre-show conversation. In the clip above, she pretends to be a nightmare Late Night guest so as to help Meyers see how he might deal with a Joaquin Phoenix-Letterman scenario.

Drake is Mad at Rolling Stone [Updated]

Drake — the emotional, sweater rocking rapper who really just talks — is mad at Rolling Stone. In an interview with the magazine, Drake apparently dissed Kanye West’s Yeezus by saying “There were some real questionable bars on there. Like that ‘Swaghili’ line? Come on, man. Fabolous wouldn’t say some shit like that.” While FishbowlNY completely agrees — Yeezus was garbage — Drake is now claiming that he didn’t say that. He’s also mad that Rolling Stone ditched him for a cover featuring Phillip Seymour Hoffman:

Poor Drake. It must be difficult being so intimidated by West that you can’t rightfully criticize his work.

The Canadian born MC wasn’t done after this tweet. He really wanted everyone to know how annoyed he was about losing that cover:

The Kim Kardashian Vogue Cover is (Maybe) Happening


Ask and Ye shall receive. According to Jezebel, “a well-placed source” said Kanye West might finally get to see his girl Kim Kardashian on the cover of Vogue.

West has been begging Anna Wintour to put Kardashian on the cover for months. Wintour, being Wintour, didn’t seem to be interested in the idea. Eventually West escalated things from begging to pestering. Last week he even interrupted Wintour during lunch to protest the idea that Lena Dunham was more deserving of a Vogue shoot than Kardashian.

We didn’t think it could be done, but apparently West has finally wore Wintour down. There is one caveat though. The source merely said Vogue photographers were “in LA shooting her RIGHT NOW.” There’s no mention of Kardashian grabbing the cover.

Despite the lack of a cover specification, you would think at this point Wintour is just going to give it to Kardashian so Wintour can live her life in peace. Until North West gets a little older, that is.

Bret Easton Ellis Kicks Off Podcast with Kanye West

We’ve all read the incendiary Bret Easton Ellis tweets. So it’s somewhat surprising, for anyone not familiar with his voice, to hear how mellow he sounds. Off the top of his new PodcastOne show, Ellis is one part NPR-worthy and another college campus groovy DJ.

Also kind of hilarious is the length of Ellis’ first question. It’s bled from the intro, yes, but it runs a full four minutes as Ellis used a recent interview he did with an Italian film magazine to throw a query over to Kanye.

Kanye West Wants His Baby on Vogue Cover

Kanye West is very good at being Kanye West. What does a Kanye West do? Endlessly shove himself in the spotlight because no one has ever bothered to tell him “No, stop that” or “Your new album is garbage.” West’s latest move is to convince Anna Wintour to put his baby, North West, on the cover of Vogue.

According to RadarOnline, West has been tirelessly lobbying Wintour. He even put together some stats that show reality TV stars help sell fashion magazines. Now you’re probably thinking, “North West is just a baby! And not a star of anything! Vogue would never do this!” But please keep all rational thoughts to yourself.

Despite West’s constant buzzing, Wintour has been “less than enthusiastic” about the idea. This is mostly because Wintour is not an idiot. Still, a source told RadarOnline that West “is convinced that he’s going to make this happen.”

Of course he is. He’s Kanye West.

Summertime, and the TMZ Video Embedding is Easy

Wednesday’s altercation in the streets of Hollywood between Mr. Khloe Kardashian and a pair of paparazzi vehicles is the latest instant national story anchored around some exclusive TMZ video.

The gossip site posted the Splash News footage last night and as a result, this morning it’s powering stories on both coasts. At press time, 25% of those answering an Access Hollywood poll are for Team Paparazzi, while New York Daily News entertainment reporter Rachel Maresca documents how Lamar Odom‘s famous wife backed him up on Twitter.

Odom, Kanye West and their significant reality TV others are accustomed to the paparazzi posse, so it typically takes something extra “special” to provoke. In this case, per The Huffington Post, the trigger was apparently a ruder-than-usual question:

According to Fame Flynet, the agency that obtained photos from the scene, Odom flipped out after being questioned about reports he has been cheating on his wife of four years.
