Kanye has clearly thought of himself as a King for a while now, but in his latest move, has announced his plans to to Vanity Fair to up his game, and campaign for a 2020 US presidency bid. Speaking about himself for no doubt the millionth time this year so far, the soon-t-be- father of two divulged the following about his 2015 Video Music Awards announcement: “As soon as I said that, it was like, ‘Wait a second, we would really be into that, because actually if you think about it, he’s extremely thoughtful. Every time he’s ever gotten in trouble, he was really jumping in front of a bullet for someone else. He’s probably the most honest celebrity that we have.’ I didn’t approach that because I thought it would be fun. It wasn’t like, Oh, let’s go rent some jet skis in Hawaii. No, the exact opposite. I sit in clubs and I’m like, Wow, I’ve got five years before I go and run for office and I’ve got a lot of research to do, I’ve got a lot of growing up to do.”
The self declared anti-politics Yeezy, who last week unveiled his sophomore Adidas collection at NYFW, continued: “I hate politics. I’m not a politician at all. I care about the truth and I just care about human beings. I just want everyone to win, that’s all I can say, and I think we can. My dad has two masters degrees. My mom has a PhD, she used to work at Operation PUSH. Somehow the more and more creative I get, the closer and closer I get to who I was as a child.”
So is this the end of Kanye‘s club days? Me thinks not. And more importantly, how will Kim dress as a First Lady?! One fan that would definitely be casting a vote for Kanye wrote on Twitter “I promise you I’m voting for Kanye West if he runs for president 2020. That is all. good night. PS: I’m for real. Lol.”
‘EOS‘ is the ‘it’ make-up brand at the moment, with their products popping up everywhere- all over the shop in fact! In the latest demonstration of celebrity endorsements in advertising and product promotion, Miley Cyrus can be seen sampling their products in her latest music video for ‘We Can’t Stop‘, where they are scattered across a table at a party.
Not only do they come in a number of fruity flavours, but they also have quite a funky circular design, and cost only $3.29. Unfortunately you can’t purchase them as of yet in any British cosmetic stores, but they should expand overseas soon. The flavour I’m most desperate to try is mint, but you can also buy pomegranate raspberry, strawberry sorbet, summer fruit, honeysuckle honeydew, medicated tangerine, and lemon drop (with SPF 15, so perfect for a summer get away).
The Kardashians are other fans of the range, especially Kim and younger sibling Kylie, and Kim used their products consistently throughout her recent pregnancy, with her favourite flavour being strawberry sorbet. Each balm contains shea butter and antioxidants. You can buy ‘Evolution of Smooth‘ products here. I only wish I’d discovered them sooner! I remember during my visit to New York last summer, my sister was more excited than your average kid at Christmas when she stumbled across a stack of these in several cheap drug stores- I think the majority of her suitcase was filled with them upon our return!
When I first heard that the Kardashian sisters were designing a collection, (sorry ‘kollection’) of clothing for UK stores, I expected them to have paired up with the likes of ‘River Island‘, ‘Topshop‘, or of course ‘Lipsy‘, who all share quite a young demographic. Their collaboration with dowdy High Street store ‘Dorothy Perkins‘ just wasn’t right for their public image; so now I’m glad that party dress shop ‘Lipsy‘ is their newest collaboration.
‘Lipsy‘ posted on their site yesterday: “Super exciting news at ‘Lipsy‘ HQ! Lipsy are teaming up with the Kardashians to launch a brand new ‘Kardashian Kollection‘ this Autumn. The highly anticipated new collection will embrace Kim‘s glamorous vibe, Kourtney‘s eclectic taste and Khloé‘s edgy style. From timeless pieces to fashionably tailored looks, the line will appeal to all women who love fashion. ‘Lipsy‘ caught up with Kourtney, Kim and Khloé this week and this is what they had to say.”
Khloé: “We’re so excited to announce the launch of ‘Kardashian Kollection‘ for ‘Lipsy‘ in the UK, Ireland, Russia and the Middle East this October. We’re collaborating with ‘Lipsy‘ to bring a fresh new range of pieces and I can’t wait for the new line to hit stores.”
Kourtney added “Kim, Khloé and I are always looking for new ways to keep our ‘Kollection‘ unique and give our fans fashion-forward pieces, so we felt that teaming up with ‘Lipsy‘ was the perfect way to do this. There’s a little something for everyone in this new ‘Kollection‘.” And finally, Kim: “We always want to keep things fresh and exciting for our fans across the world and we can’t wait to see the response around these new pieces. There are some really stylish blazers for the fall, sexy evening dresses and statement pieces I can’t wait for everyone to see.”
Kourtney posted on her own personal blog about it too: “Khloé and I are always looking for new ways to keep our ‘Kollection‘ unique and give our fans fashion-forward pieces, so we felt that teaming up with ‘Lipsy‘ was the perfect way to do this. There’s a little something for everyone in this new ‘Kollection‘ and I can’t wait to see how you guys style the pieces. I’m always impressed with the way everyone is so uniquely dressed. More to come!”
I think I’m going to have to start calling Kim Kardashian a nutter…the reality star had yet another ridiculous beauty treatment last week- this time it was acupuncture. Not in your back or any other normal location mind… on her face. In the image above, 18 needles are visibly sticking into her already-flawless skin. As if the blood facial wasn’t weird enough…whatever’s next?
She ‘Instagrammed‘ the shot, in which she wears her usual full face of make-up, along with the caption, “oh, just relaxing.” Yeah Kim, sounds totes relaxing. I could just do that all day. She needs to get off the train at the platform now before she arrives at Crazy Town next stop.
Kim Kardashian is known for being very experimental when it comes to beauty treatments, and her latest is quite shocking, and definitely a little ‘Twilight‘-esque… The reality star visited a salon on last night’s episode of ‘Kim & Kourtney Take Miami‘ and had a ‘blood facial.’ The procedure requires them to draw blood from the arm, separate the platelets, and then inject it into the face.
Kim turned to the camera and said beforehand: “I love trying anything that makes you look and feel youthful.” However, throughout she repeatedly moaned an “ow”, and told her BFF Jonathan Cheban: “Oh my God. I will never get a facelift if it feels like that.”
She tweeted about the procedure: “Look what @jonathancheban did to me! #KKTM. The only failure is in not trying,” before kicking off at sister Kourtney‘s boyfriend Scott with “did you all hear
@ScottDisick say 93lbs is the dream!? Is he on crack?!”
The Kardashian/ Jenner family was the victim of a nasty prank call last week which resulted in their home being raided. Their multi-million dollar Malibu mansion came under threat when someone sent police racing to the property, having made a mysterious phone call, in which they claimed to have caused a shooting, and that they were hiding in one of the many closets.
Although the family were out at the time last Friday (no doubt attending some fabulous family event), I’m sure they were far from thrilled about the scare. After finding the house empty, those present contacted the family-no crime had been committed and no arrests were made. Kim‘s Mum Kris rang her daughter after the arrival of no less than 15 police officers, who then posted a message to the hoax’s organisers on her Twitter: “These prank calls are NOT funny. People can get arrested for this! I hope they find out who is behind this. It’s dangerous & not a joke!”
Kanye West no doubt ruined a planned magazine exclusive last night by announcing girlfriend Kim Kardashian‘s pregnancy during a concert. He stopped mid-performance last night in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and ordered the crowd to “make some noise for my baby mama!”
The softie rapper’s revelation was confirmed online today by Kim, who posted: “It’s true! Kanye and I are expecting a baby. We feel so blessed and lucky and wish that in addition to both of our families, his Mom and my Dad could be here to celebrate this special time with us. Looking forward to great new beginnings in 2013 and to starting a family. Happy New Year!”
The hundreds of Kardashian family members have all been tweeting their excitement. Kourtney: “Been wanting to shout from the rooftops with joy and now I can! Another angel to welcome to our family. Overwhelmed with excitement!” Khloé: “KIMYE! Keeping secrets is hard with so many family members! Especially when you are so freaking excited! LOVE is everything!” Lamar Odom, Khloé‘s husband: “I’m excited for Kanye and my sister! There’s nothing like bringing life into this world! Let’s keep Gods blessings coming!” Kim‘s Mum Kris Jenner: “I’m a happy girl! Wowza! Oh BABY BABY BABY!” Younger half-sisters Kendall and Kylie also had a message each for them: “Who’s excited about the KIMYE babbyyy?! 😀 Weeee,” and “congrats to this beautiful couple. I love you guys.” Let’s hope that Khloé is the next to pop one out, she is so deserving…
Reality Queen Kim Kardashian‘s adorable Persian kitten, a present from boyfriend Kanye West, has died out of the blue from a mysterious illness. After realising that she was allergic to the cutie recently, she passed her on to sister Khloé‘s assistant, Sydney Hitchcock.
Kim blogged over the weekend: “It is with deep sadness that I have to tell you all that my kitten, Mercy, has passed away. My heart is completely broken. When I first got Mercy, I had never lived with a cat before and so I had no idea that I was allergic. I thought that it might pass, but after a few weeks I decided to go visit two separate allergists, one of whom said my allergies wouldn’t get any better unless I started taking injections. I had fallen SO in love with Mercy that I wanted to try everything I could to keep her, but I didn’t think it was safe to resort to injections, and it wasn’t fair on Mercy, because I couldn’t play with her or give her as much attention as I wanted to. Mercy deserved a mom who could really give her the time and affection she deserved. I knew that Sydney, Khloé’s assistant, who had recently lost a cat she had loved and cared for for 17 years, would be the perfect mom for Mercy and Sydney was so excited to have Mercy as her own!”
“Sydney gave Mercy a loving home, but after a couple of weeks Mercy got really sick and Sydney had to rush her to the vet. They discovered she had a stomach problem that we weren’t aware of. Her stomach had filled with fluid and the doctor said she had a rare stomach cancer and that there was nothing we could do for her. Poor little Mercy died the very next day. It broke not only my heart that little Mercy died at only 4 months old, but Sydney’s too. Mercy was a gentle and loving kitten and we are all going to miss her so much. Thanks to Sydney for making Mercy’s short life one filled with love. RIP Mercy.”
