Lana Del Rey And Azealia Banks' Twitter Feud Escalates


Lana Del Rey Azealia Banks Kanye West

Lana Del Rey’s social media feud with Azealia Banks is growing more intense, after the rapper had called out Lana for criticising Kanye West’s support for president Donald Trump.

The often controversial Banks, whose top hit single was ‘212’, had described Del Rey as “vapid”, after the singer had last week left a lengthy comment on Kanye West’s Instagram post. All this comes in the context of the rap megastar’s recurring support for the divisive president Trump. Got all that?

“Don’t use Kanye for your own vapid attempts to seem politically aware when there is SO MUCH MORE bootleg witchcraft you could be doing to TRY and take down 45,” Banks retorted on Instagram.

Kanye West Kim Kardashian

Yet more details from the world’s most intriguing marriage, with Kim Kardashian revealing that her husband Kanye West once gave her $1 million dollars to NOT take a job.

The reality star and entrepreneur, 37, spilled the beans in an episode of Ashley Graham’s new podcast Pretty Big Deal this week, telling the host that Kanye once cut her a cheque for a million bucks in return for her turning down a lucrative offer from a rival fashion brand to promote it.

“He's like the cutest,” Kim said. “A brand offered me a million dollars to do a post on some of their clothing and they typically - I don't want to say who the brand is - but they typically knock off Yeezy.”

Kanye West

Kanye West has incited another storm of controversy by calling for the abolition of the 13th ammendment; though it didn't take him long to start backtracking.

Somebody ought to take Twitter away from Kanye West before he loses all his fans. The rapper posted a shot of himself on social media on board a private jet wearing a 'Make America Great Again' hat, which was enough to whip his anti-Trump followers into an enraged frenzy without the questionable Tweet that accompanied the picture.

The pair were set to embark on their 'Fame Kills' tour beginning in November 2009 and taking them to January 2010, but the dates ended up being cancelled shortly after tickets went on sale.

Posting a picture of one of Drake’s live shows, the 41 year old star wrote: “Sending good energy and love to Drake and family and crew…. I haven’t seen the show in person but the images look incredible online. I understand where the confusion started.”

“Let me start by apologizing for stepping on your release date in the first place… We were building a bond and working on music together including squashing the issues with Cudi at our office. When I put the dates up I was a bit ramped up doing 25 tweets a day TMZ happened shortly after… I have to hop on the plane now… will type more when I land.”

Three weeks after he was first asked, Kanye West has finally given a response to the question that Jimmy Kimmel asked him about Donald Trump.

Appearing on the chat show host’s show back in early August, the rapper was asked why he thinks that the current president cares about black people – spinning a statement that West himself made more than a decade ago about former president George W. Bush in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

Speaking to 107.5 WGCI Chicago, 40 year old West was asked the same question, and, after a long 25-second pause, he eventually answered: “I feel that he cares about the way black people feel about him.”

As ‘Carpool Karaoke’ continues to grow in popularity with no signs of slow-down any time soon, the list of megastars who’ve participated contains one person notable by his absence – Kanye West. But his absence is nothing to do with his occasionally controversial views, according to James Corden, instead simply because he keeps cancelling.

‘The Late Late Show’ host was speaking to Kanye’s mother-in-law Kris Jenner on the chat show on Monday this week, during a segment called ‘Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts’, where guests must answer an awkward question or consume a disgusting food or drink item.

“We’ve tried,” Corden explained, saying that Yeezy’s last minute pull-out cost the show $45,000.

Wyoming Ranch Instigates "No More Rappers" Policy After Kanye Listening Party


Kanye West

The Wyoming ranch where Kanye West held a listening party for his brand new album ye last week has announced that they will ban rappers from the property, after the trouble they say was caused by the event.

Jane Golliher, the owner and proprietor of the Diamond Cross Ranch at the Jackson Hole, Wyoming, told The Blast this week that, although the listening party had offered her business a huge shot of exposure and opportunity and that she was grateful for it, the event was the “most confusing” thing that they had ever hosted.

Reportedly, the 40 year old rapper had told Golliher and her husband that he intended to host the listening party inside but, after then changing his mind “every 30 minutes”, ended up throwing it outside. Furthermore, local county bye-laws dictates that any sound played outside after 10pm must not exceed 80 decibels – but Kanye blasted his album at over 120 decibels.
