There’s no news yet on the name of baby Kimye (although there have been lots of guessesand rumored names). Although we’ve heard what mom Kris Jenner had to say about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s new bundle of joy, we haven’t heard from the new mom herself — until now.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians‘ producer Ryan Seacrest took to his radio show to read out loud a short email exchange he had with the reality star. “Yay! Congrats my darling, you’re a mommy!” Ryan wrote in which Kardashian responded, “Can’t believe it! It’s so crazy!”
Kardashian gave birth on Saturday, five weeks before her actual due date. Sources confirmed to E! News that it was a natural delivery and baby Kimye weighed “just under five pounds.” Both mom and baby are doing well.Read More
Mariah Carey hits with some interesting news today. By way of her long time producing collaborator and friend Jermaine Dupri, Mariah has officially announced the titled of her 14th album (among a list of other platinum albums and holiday projects since 1990). The new album goes by the name “The Art of Letting Go” and is set to drop on July 23rd. Of course American Idol acted as a great pedestal for the album release, along side her new smash collabo “Beautiful” with Miguel that she just performed on the Summer Jam XX stage. For all you #lambs out there as Mariah would call you, stay tuned this summer released under Island Records with expected production appearances from The Dream, JD, music industry heavy weights like Rodney Jerkins and more.Read More
Leave it to Beyonce to blow all of those other online congrats about the KimYe baby out of the water. Blue Ivy’s mom wished the new parents well with a giant banner on her website Sunday.
“Congratulations Kim & Kanye,” Bey wrote. “Enjoy this beautiful moment together.” She also included a super cute black and white shot of the couple.
Kim and Kanye have now joined the ranks of other huge stars who’ve merited personal well wishes from Mrs. Carter. Last week, Bey also posted a shot of a hand-written note congratulating Serena Williams on her huge French Open win. Beyonce has even written notes to Michelle Obama!Read More
Gone is the sweet Miley Cyrus who once sang about partying in the USA. In her place stands and new pop star who loves twerking and whose latest single, “We Can’t Stop,” contains lyrics about drug use.
In a new interview with Billboard magazine, Cyrus says that he musical transformation has been hard for some people to wrap their heads around. “A lot of people wanted to try to make me the white Nicki Minaj,” the 20-year-old singer tells the mag. “That’s not what I’m trying to do. I love ‘hood’ music, but my talent is as a singer.”
“We Can’t Stop” shot to the top of the iTunes charts when Cyrus released it earlier this month, but the song has drawn some criticism for its lyrics about drugs. But Miley says singing about partying and actually partying are two totally different things. (more…)Read More
Honestly, Left Eye fans aren’t going to know quite what to think about the 20th anniversary re-recording of “Waterfalls” that was released this week. The new version is pretty standard up until about the 3:09 mark, when J-Pop superstar Namie Amuro lends her baby-soft voice to the late Lisa Lopes’ rap verse. It’s weird.
Amuro’s segment might have worked better were she not attempting to spit the exact same lines Lopes did two decades ago without any notable rap experience. But that hasn’t kept the song from rocketing up the charts in Japan, where T-Boz and Chilli are set to make an appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards Japan next week. The group will be accepting the MTV Japan Legend Award — and we wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a performance in the mix, too.
Usher‘s a very busy dude, but he still managed to find the time to film a Samsung commercial short film, Looking for Myself: Presented by Samsung, which pits the singer in a battle against a flashier leather-jacket wearing version of himself.
The clip, which showcases the movements used to control a Samsung Smart TV, probably had a higher budget than most of his music videos, by the looks of it. Usher told Entertainment Weekly, “This gave me an opportunity to put a face to a song that I love. The short is about basically the two sides of my personality: the dichotomy of who I am as an entertainer, a relationship gone bad because of who I am as an entertainer.“Read More
A congratulations is in order, as millions of KK fans around the word are probably lighting up their celebratory cigars in the name of Kim Kardashian’s new baby girl. The reality star and baby father Kanye West have given birth to the much expected Kimye baby and sources are reporting that the baby is in well health. We can only imagine how crazy the Kardashian clan is going with their wonderful family extension; and how excited Kanye West is (not because of the Yeezus leak either). A huge ” for he’s a jolly good fellow” for Kanye and a super congrats to Kim Kardashian on the birth. Will we see the baby on a next season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians? Check out the quote from US Weekly on the birth status after the jump! (more…)Read More
It’s a startlingly big day for J-Kwon, the St. Louis rapper who had a megahit in 2004 with “Tipsy” and then vanished off the face of the earth.
First, Kanye West name-dropped him in his fascinating interview with the New York Times, listing J-Kwon’s lone hit as an example of the type of production he’s working with on his upcoming album, Yeezus. It was a compliment bookended with mild insults.
“The last record I can remember — and I’m going to name records that you’ll think are cheesy — but like, J-Kwon, ‘Tipsy,’” Kanye insisted. “People would think that’s like a lower-quality, less intellectual form of hip-hop, but that’s always my No. 1.”
It was, in all honesty, probably the first time J-Kwon’s name had been mentioned in the press in a couple of years — maybe since that time people thought he was dead. And then, within hours, J-Kwon dropped a new song.
“Pushing the Odds” is a hilariously prissy diss track aimed at Odd Future and Pusha T, both of whom have snarked at him in song in the past. There’s a direct reference to the offensive Odd Future line (“I bet you got some J-Kwon, you ain’t got no f**kin Yeezy?”) and the chorus, “All I wanna know is why they pickin’ on me? / Cause I f**k around and pop yo’ ass.”
Tyler the Creator, it should be noted, is freaking thrilled.
