Kanye West Raps About Kim’s Sex Tape

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKanye West raps about Kim Kardashian's sex tape in his new song.

The "Stronger" rapper - who has been dating the reality TV star for around five months - appears to make reference to Kim's infamous 2007 tape in latest track "Clique." The song - which was leaked to gossip website TMZ.com and will be featured on his album Cruel Summer - includes the line, "Eat breakfast at Gucci. My girl a superstar all from a home movie."

The sex tape stars Kim and her Kardashian and ex-boyfriend Ray J, and after it was leaked online, the 31-year-old socialite became a huge star. While he is singing about the sex tape, it was recently claimed Kanye - who has known Kim for four years - had refused to watch it.

"For all his bad-boy image, he's quite old-fashioned and [while they were still just friends] he thought it inappropriate to view Kim's tape. Now that they are a couple, there's no way Kanye's ever going to look at it," a source said.

The next iPhone will be called “The New iPhone”

The new iPhone

Earlier today Apple invited select press to its September 12th iPhone event, and the invitation had a number 12 casting a shadow in the shape of a number 5. This caused many to speculate (including us!) that this confirmed that Apple be calling its next smartphone the iPhone 5. Well, an image published by iPhonenieuwsblog tells a different story. In it we see the packaging for the new iPhone. As you can see, the display has six rows of app icons instead of five, and it's specifically referred to as "The new iPhone" on the packaging. So, there you have it. We're inclined to go with this, as it just makes perfect sense. The next iPhone will simply be known as "the new iPhone."

Redesigned Apple headphones appear on video

New Apple headphones

The fine folks at Tinh Tê have managed to snag what appears to be a new, redesigned pair of the iconic Apple earphones. The alleged iPhone earphones appear cone-shaped, perhaps so they may fit snugly in the ear canal. Good news to all small-eared readers out there: this redesign would probably keep them from popping out while bumping to music, or running with the Nike+ app. If the redesign turns out to be true, they would be a welcome addition to be included with the next-generation iPhone. All the rumors are pointing to a  September 12 Apple iPhone announcement. Thanks to Google translate, it is understood that the earphones are more compact than previous models. According to the reports, the sound quality is much improved and the bass is significantly louder. Video after the break!

Motorola RAZR M 4G LTE

Looks like the Motorola RAZR M 4G LTE device has been leaked with pics and specs galore. What can you expect from the former XT907 Verizon device? How about a 4.3-inch qHD display, 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 processor, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box? Yeah, we know, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has been out for a couple of months, but that's how it goes with Android. Other features include 1GB RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera and 3-megapixel front camera, 8GB internal storage (expandable with a microSD card,) and NFC. You get the same industrial Kevlar design that's found on the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX, which is actually nice. We expect it to be officially unveiled on September 5th.
