NY Times Corrects Article with Fake Kanye Quote

The editors at The New York Times don’t think much of Kanye West. If they did, they’d probably be skeptical of a quote in which he said his butt was superior to Kim Kardashian’s. That’s a bit much, even for Kanye. Instead, the editors ran an article with such a quote, despite it being pulled from satirical site The Daily Currant:

At least the editors have now learned two lessons: 1) The Daily Currant is a fake news site and 2) No one has a better butt than Kim Kardashian.

Anna Wintour Admits KimYe Vogue Cover Was Publicity Stunt

Anna Wintour has admitted that the infamous Vogue cover that featured Kanye West and Kim Kardashian was simply a way to get people talking about the magazine. Fashionista reports that while speaking at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Wintour gave the couple one hell of a backhanded compliment:

Of Course Paper Retouched its Kim Kardashian Cover

Kim_cover_web_2

Surprising no one (hopefully) the editorial director of Paper has admitted that the infamous Kim Kardashian cover was retouched. Mickey Boardman told Us Weekly that while there was plenty of smoothing things out, Kardashian’s butt was the real deal:

Every cover of every magazine is airbrushed on some level. But what I will say, is that is her butt. It is not padded. It is not augmented. That is all really her. But, yes, there was retouching to clean things up and make things look amazing. That’s what retouching is. It’s not building an ass that isn’t there or taking 50 pounds off the waist.

Obviously we don’t believe that Kardashian’s waist is that thin, mainly because how could she walk around like that? It seems like she’d always be toppling over. Like a sad and weird — but rich! — doll.

Kim Kardashian Gets Naked for Paper

Kim_cover_web_2

One easy way to get your magazine noticed is to have a celebrity with a giant and fantastic — career, pose completely naked on the cover. To the editors of Paper’s credit, that’s exactly what they did. They oiled up Kim Kardashian West, told her to get naked, and hoped for the best. It certainly got our attention.

This is actually the second Paper cover featuring Kardashian West. The other one is a recreation of Jean-Paul Goude’s “champagne incident,” with Kardashian West balancing a glass of champagne on her ass. Art is great.

Kanye West preferred this cover. He tweeted the image along with #ALLDAY. Consider the Paper mission accomplished.

Vogue Says it’s Okay to Like Big Butts Now

In what can only be described as an attempt to sound as out-of-touch as possible, Vogue has announced that “We’re officially in the era of the big booty.

The magazine claims that the era began with Kim Kardashian’s groundbreaking idiot tour, Keeping up With The Kardashians, in 2007. ”It made the entire clan famous, of course, but Kardashian’s behind was the real star, and was frequently employed as a plot device,” explained the glossy.

Vogue also insists that Instagram made booty a desirable trait, and even oddly highlights Miley Cyrus — a woman with zero, perhaps even negative booty — as someone pioneering this movement. It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so scarily wrong. Disrespecting the booty is not a laughing matter.

Media Rushes to Keep Up with Latest Kim Kardashian Nude Spread

In terms of answered SEO prayers, it doesn’t get much better at the midpoint of the first work week of September for scrambling U.S. webmasters than “Kim Kardashian” + “Naked.”

The deliverer of this gift from the traffic gods is British GQ. Their 2014 Woman of the Year does a very good Beyonce impression, both on the cover and inside. Complex raves that the pictures snapped by Tom Munro “may be the sexiest we’ve ever seen.” E! Online suggests “post-baby Kim has still got it.” US Weekly declares “she’s a whole lotta woman.” And HollywoodLife leads with “no need for phone hacking.”

Anna Wintour Musical Returning to Joe’s Pub

BeeShafferRyanRafteryOne-man show Ryan Raftery is the Most Powerful Woman in Fashion is way over the top. Raftery’s drag-version of Anna Wintour gets “chronic constipation” as a result of running that Kimye cover and fearing that she will be fired from Condé Nast by S.I. Newhouse.

After debuting earlier this month at Joe’s Pub, the show is scheduled for a pair of encore Friday late-night shows in early September. As Raftery recently told The Cut‘s Maggie Lange, it all started with a chance encounter:

Raftery has done a solo show a year since 2009 — and the five before this one were all about his personal life. He says that he ran out of material, and instead of “waiting to be kidnapped,” he decided to find some other subject matter.

Dynamic Female Duo Now at the Helm of SheKnows

LeaAnnLemingPicThe best way to frame FishbowlNY’s phone conversation today with Lea Ann Leming, chief content officer of SheKnows (pictured, right), and newly hired editor-in-chief Amy Boshnack (pictured, below) is as follows. The company has been profitable for the past several years and expects a 30% increase in revenue in 2014.

Also worth mentioning is the fact that Cosmopolitan, a magazine where Boshnack served as managing editor from January 2005 to January 2008, has just revamped its website. When asked about the then-print vs. now-Web differences, Boshnack notes the obvious change in the speed of news and feature cycles. Per comScore, SheKnows currently averages around 40 million monthly uniques.

“A big thing for me is making sure the women reading us are having conversations,” Boshnack explains. “Part of what’s being done here is continuing to make sure that articles being published are about things women are talking about. And to feed that through our comments section, social media.”

Kim Kardashian Breastfeeds the Media

FameflynetLogoWho needs The Onion’s ClickHole when BuzzFeed gives you things like this?

Below the headline “Kim Kardashian’s Boobs Take North West For A Walk,” writer Whitney Jefferson has embedded a half-dozen truly jaw-dropping pictures of Kim Kardashian. For a recent walk with her just-turned-one-year-old daughter, Ms. K chose to wear what looks like one of Kanye’s smoking jackets. With next-to-nothing underneath.

The plunging-neckline throw-together fully exposed a large portion of Kardashian’s voluptuous assets. At the end of the BuzzFeed item, Jefferson adds and then enlarges one more snap from Fame Flynet Pictures. That one shows, in a rare moment of conflicted judgment, a photographer seemingly glaring his disapproval in the direction of the sexily dressed mom.
