Anna Wintour Praises Kim Kardashian

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Editorials,

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian on the cover of 'Vogue'Anna Wintour thinks that Kim Kardashian has "real guts."

The Vogue editor, who previously had a frosty relationship with the reality TV star despite being close friends with her fiancee Kanye West, claims she decided to put the Keeping Up with the Kardashians beauty on the cover of the magazine's April edition because she admires Kim's "strength of character."

In her editor's letter for Vogue's Shape issue, the cover of which features the "New Slaves" hitmaker with his arms around Kim, who is wearing a strapless Lanvin wedding dress, the fashion icon, 64, writes, "There's barely a strand of the modern media that the Kardashian Wests haven't been able to master, and for good reason. Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world's spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that."

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Can Sue Over Engagement Footage

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKim Kardashian and Kanye West's lawsuit over their leaked engagement footage can go ahead, a judge has ruled.

The couple were taking legal action against YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley for posting a 150-second video of the rapper's lavish proposal at San Francisco's AT&T Park stadium, but the tech entrepreneur had sought for the case to be dismissed on constitutional grounds, claiming it violated his rights to free speech. He also argued he wasn't informed he wasn't allowed to film or distribute the footage but a judge ruled yesterday that the word "CONFIDENTIALITY" could be seen clearly on a document he signed when entering the stadium.

And Chad could also face fraud charges, website TMZ reports, as the judge agreed with Kim and Kanye's view that his "wrangling" over the case has been "improper."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Legal Issues,

Kanye West and Kim KardashianKanye West has been sentenced to two years probation.

The "Blood on the Leaves" rapper was in court today where he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of battery against a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport last year. In a special plea deal, the City Attorney did not make Kanye plead guilty and will be allowed to maintain is innocence legally.

As well as his probation, the rapper will have to undertake 250 hours of community service and undergo anger management counseling.

Kanye was originally charged with counts of battery and grand theft after an altercation with photographer Daniel Ramos at the airport in July last year. The photographer claimed he was punched and Kanye wrestled his camera to the ground during what he claimed was an unprovoked altercation. Kanye was not in court, but Daniel testified saying he felt the rapper should go to jail, claiming his emotional injuries are still prominent and he thinks the star had used the incident to promote his album Yeezus.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Agree to Prenup

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKim Kardashian will get $1 million for every year she stays married to Kanye West.

The couple have signed a prenuptial agreement ahead of their forthcoming wedding this spring, in which Kanye has been very generous toward his future spouse.

"The entire process for the prenup for Kim and Kanye has been extremely easy, and relatively drama free. Kanye didn't even think the couple needed a prenup, and was ready to give Kim carte blanche to all of his financial assets. Yes, he loves Kim that much," a source said.

The source adds drawing up the document was much easier than the last time Kim, 33, married, to basketball player Kris Humphries, in 2011, a union which lasted just 72 days. "There is a huge difference from Kim's prenup with Kris Humphries ... the preparation of their agreement went on for several months. It was long and tedious," the source added.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKim Kardashian and Kanye West have set a date for their wedding.

The couple only got engaged in October last year, but are wasting no time in becoming husband and wife as they are reportedly planning to tie the knot on May 24 in Paris, France. The loved-up pair - who have eight-month-old daughter North together - will have their nuptials on a Saturday, but will fly their jet-setting guests in to the romantic city several days before they get hitched, according to Us magazine.

Meanwhile, the 33-year-old reality TV star - who has been married twice before - recently insisted she wanted her wedding to be a small and intimate affair, and she has even been axing friends and family members from the drafted guest list. "We're having a super, super, just small, intimate [wedding] ... as we're going along we're realizing that we just want it to be more small and intimate than people are imagining and thinking," she said recently.

However, the "New Slaves" rapper, 36, has other ideas as he wants to invite lots of famous faces from the world of fashion to their nuptials, including Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, Karl Lagerfeld and Vogue magazine editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

Kanye West and Pharrell WilliamsKanye West is reportedly jealous of Pharrell Williams.

The "Blood On The Leaves" rapper is said to be keeping a close eye on the "Happy" hitmaker after reports he is close to signing a deal with Adidas, the same sportswear brand that Kanye has been commissioned to design a clothing range for.

"They are competitive in both music and fashion, Kanye always watches what Pharrell does. He thinks having a similar artist working on their own brand for Adidas will make his collection less special," a source said.

Kanye signed a deal with Adidas in December last year after a spat with the Nike - over royalties for his exclusive collection of Air Yeezy sneakers - which resulted in the end of his business relationship with the sportswear brand.


Kanye West Writing Film Role for Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKanye West is writing a movie role for Kim Kardashian.

The "Bound 2" hitmaker - who has eight-month-old daughter North with the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star - is teaming up with author Bret Easton Ellis for a film based on his Yeezus album and insiders say his fiancee will "definitely" be part of the cast.

"It's going to be based on the Yeezus album. That's pretty much a narrative of Kanye's life. Kanye will not appear in the movie. Kim is definitely going to be in it. The screenplay already features her character," a source said.

However, it has not yet been decided how big a role Kim will play in the movie. "They're still working on the script, so it's unclear at this point if Kim will be a major star of the movie or making a smaller cameo but her role in the movie will be pivotal. Her role is going to be very dramatic. Far from the bubbly happy persona that she's always played," the source added.

Kanye plans to direct the movie - which will be dedicated to his late mother - and "wants to be heavily involved in all aspects of production."

Lily AllenLily Allen will call her new album Sheezus as a tribute to Kanye West.

The "Air Balloon" singer insisted the name of the record - a parody of the rapper's latest album Yeezus - isn't intended as a joke as his expense, instead describing it as a sign of ''respect."

"With all my albums, I've just wanted to have a laugh. But yes, Sheezus, it's bold. But it's not taking the p**s out of Kanye at all. I've got nothing but respect for him. I love him ... So it is a little homage to him. I hope he doesn't think it's a diss. I'd be horrified if he thought that," she told The Sun.

The 28-year-old star also explained while Kanye is outspoken and controversial, he actually "makes total sense." She said,"I know people think he's crazy but most of what he says I think makes total sense. I mean there are a few exceptions but on the whole. He is one of the only people who says what he believes and people call him mad for it."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Television, Rivalries, Rumors,

Kanye West and Kim KardashianKanye West wants to manage Kim Kardashian's career.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has been working with her mother, Kris Jenner, since she first found fame after her sex tape with ex-boyfriend Ray J was leaked in 2007, but her rapper fiance is reportedly now "totally in charge" behind the scenes and is starting to leave his future mother-in-law out of important meetings.

"Kanye is now totally in charge of Kim's career and his non-stop wheeling and dealing is leaving Kris out of control. Kanye has managed to get Kim to cut her magazine and media appearances by a shocking level and that's going directly against Kris' plan to seize every publicity opportunity offered to her daughters," a source said.

The "New Slaves" hitmaker, who is living with Kris while the couple's new home in Bel Air, California undergoes extensive renovations, is allegedly eager for Kim, 33, to end some of her current contracts so she take on more high-level projects. "His goal is to get people to respect Kim and take her seriously -- it's basically the same kind of thing he did when he was launching his rap career after being known primarily as a producer," the insider said.
