Jay-Z, Rihanna and Kanye in Run This Town video

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Music Videos, Hip-Hop & Rap,

So what does it take to properly “Run This Town”? Judging by , Rihanna and Kanye West’s appearances, the key is fashionable eyewear. (Sexy stockings also apparently help.)

In this video for Jay-Z’s new single, the trio rallies a group of torch-bearing, bandana-wearing followers to do…something. Maybe they’ll be in the crowd when the song is performed on Jay Leno’s new show?

Lady Gaga Touring with Kanye West

Although I doubt Baba Wawa (a.k.a. Barbara Walters) has a clue who is, she’ll probably figure it out soon enough.

Earlier today, broke major touring news…to the ladies of The View. (It’s apparently the new TRL.) The rapper told the daytime audience that he’ll soon be performing with that other musical fashionista.

So will Gaga be opening for Kanye….or will he be the warm-up act for her? Neither. “She’s talented and she’s, um….she’s so incredible that she’s not an opening act. We’re doing our show together, with no opening act,” West teased. (So it’s basically the hipper version of the Elton John/Billy Joel tour?)

No other details about the upcoming tour have yet been announced.

Daily Snark: Jessica Simpson works the fat angle

Posted by Colleen McKie Categories: Celebrities,


Aren’t her 15 minutes up, yet?
In a desperate bid to hold on to even a smidgen of her celebrity, Jessica Simpson is slated to appear in another reality TV show. Apparently the new show, Price of Beauty, will have Jess and a friend travelling the country looking for beautiful people and what makes them beautiful.

The idea for the show came form Jess’ recent weight struggle.  Just one more travesty caused by high-waisted Mom jeans.

Lindsay’s dad still a douche bag
Michael Lohan was arrested earlier this month for threatening to kill fiancée Erin Muller and then himself when she tried to put an end to the relationship.
Guys like this tick me off.  Why not do us females a favor and forget about the first part of the threat?  We really don’t care about the second part all that much.

White wedding
Meg White from the White Strips married boyfriend Jackson Smith.  Also married were Dead Weather and the Raconteur bassist Jack Lawrence.  The weddings took place at the Nashville home of Jack White, Meg’s band mate and ex husband. Benjamin “Swank” Smith officiated.

What was there no minister named Jack available? 

Kanye is SMRT
Despite the fact that he has “written” a book, Kanye West doesn’t believe in reading. 

“I am not a fan of books. I would never want a book’s autograph. I am a proud non-reader of books. I like to get information from doing stuff like actually talking to people and living real life.”

Just for the record Kanye?  Books don’t give autographs, authors do.

UPDATE: You can read Kanye’s response to the episode here.

Hate being the only one who doesn’t get the joke? So does .

On last night’s episode of South Park (which can be seen in its entirety here), the rapper is the only person in the country doesn’t understand the laugher Cartman and Jimmy created. (Q: “Do you like fishsticks?” A: “What are you - a gay fish?”)

Believing the joke is on him, an embarrassed West eventually resorts to murder before finally making peace with the marine life.

American Idol 8: Wild Card Round

The Wild Card round of opened with three stools and eight singers who all hoped to fill them. With eight singers, four judges and one host - not to mention a performance round and an elimination round in a single episode - Idol had to move things along pretty quickly. There was little time for recap or reintroduction. Each contestant had a sort of hurried interview that played for a few moments while they rushed to the stage. It was actually sort of poorly done, not to put too fine a point on it.

At any rate, Idol viewers were given a rare treat - instant gratification. Usually, results have to wait an entire day…but not on this Wild night.

Kanye West Talks About Himself on Storytellers

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Performances, Hip-Hop & Rap,

Kanye WestIf you consider Kanye West’s provocative comments to be more humorous than outright annoying, you may want to set your DVRs now.

Later this month, the rapper will get an entire hour of television to himself. As the featured guest on VH1’s Storytellers program, Kanye will get a chance to perform tracks from and talk about the stories behind each song.

So what should one expect from that February 28th broadcast? I’m predicting something similar to this recent quote in Details magazine:

“Oh my God, I’m one of the greatest rappers in the world. I’ll get on a track and completely ee-nihilate that track, I’ll eat it and rip it in half. I wouldn’t have to think of it.”
