“Mark Zuckerberg I know it’s your birthday but can you please call me by tomorrow,” the multiple tweet message begins. “You love hip-hop, you love my art… I am your favorite artist but you watch me barely breathe and still play my album in your house.” Read more…
The plea of monetary aid came, of course, via Twitter, where Kanye wrote, “Mark Zuckerberg invest 1 billion dollars into Kanye West ideas … after realizing he is the greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time.”
Was Kanye making a prediction or a request? It’s hard to know for sure, but it’s not difficult to interpret it as a veiled request for funding considering it came just a day after Kanye claimed to have “53 million dollars in personal debt.” Read more…
No, Taylor Swift did not approve of Kanye West’s ‘misogynistic message’
Taylor Swift isn’t laughing, apparently.
Despite a report in TMZ, it seems Taylor Swift was not okay with Kanye West’s less-than-complimentary lyrics about her in his new track “Famous.”
Hours after Kanye premiered his new album The Life of Pablo on Thursday, the site reported that Swift was completely aware of the fact that Kanye’s new track included the lyrics “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, I made that bitch famous.” The rapper reportedly called her directly to explain it was a joke, and that Taylor “gave him the thumbs up to release the song with the lyric.”
‘The Life of Pablo’: Here’s what everyone thinks of Kanye West’s latest album
The Life of Pablo is only a few hours old, but everyone already has an opinion about Kanye West’s latest opus
The rapper debuted his seventh studio album at Madison Square Garden during his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show. And — it’s really good, though too soon to measure how it stacks up to his past work. West has preemptively declared it one of the greatest albums of all time and the “album of the life.”
Now that it’s out there, do fans think he’s right? Reactions on social media ranged far and wide, but some are actually daring to call it West’s best album to date

Kylie was here. I was here. You were here. Kanye sure as hell was here. Yeezy Season is a global phenomenon
Kanye West debuted his aggressively hyped album, The Life of Pablo, as well as his collection for Yeezy Season 3 at Madison Square Garden Thursday. As Kanye at his humblest might say, it was one of the greatest album launches of all time
If you need proof that Kanye has successfully created Kanye the Brand as both a fashion and music enterprise, a step inside Madison Square Garden made things crystal clear. At any given moment, you could spot a handful of disciples rocking Yeezus tour merchandise and seemingly everyone in the venue patiently waited to get their own “Ultra Light Beams” tee. After the show was over, hundreds remained in line Read more…
Kanye West’s models: A fuller spectrum of ‘black beauty’
NEW YORK — Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 show on Thursday had all the twists and turns of a perfect stage show. There was the superb music blasting from his upcoming seventh album, The Life of Pablo, the production was outer worldly, and the clothes, including West’s infamous Yeezy Boosts, are sure to become bestsellers.
But what was the most intriguing aspect from the New York City show was West’s cast of models. Most on two of the stages were of color, and the entire bottom floor (made up of street-casted, non-professional models) were black.
His use of mostly black models this year, which seemed to act as commentary on equal rights for African Americans, was accompanied by themes of class separation and hierarchy, whether intentional or not. Read more…
Kanye West’s Yeezy show just showed us fashion’s future

West, a self-proclaimed musical genius, merged fashion and music — the biggest of his passions — seamlessly in a show that reminded us what fashion shows are all about. And perhaps what they should do more of. That’s entertainment. Read more…
