Kanye West Gossip
Kanye West gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
We have a policy here at LaineyGossip. We don’t refer to Kanye West’s fiancée by name. We try not to refer to her at all. Once in a while, some of you, under influence of drugs or temporary psychosis, will force Sasha to find an outfit that she’s worn or whatever, but we don’t soil the main gossip page like that.

Kanye West was at Leonardo DiCaprio's birthday party a couple of weeks ago. Leo was at Kanye's MSG show last night. With girlfriend Toni Garrn. So, presumably, they're more than just casual acquaintances. What's that like? What does it sound like when Kanye and Leo hang out? What do they talk about? When Ye goes off about the injustice of the fashion industry and the Grammys and why his girlfriend has been excluded from the Hollywood Walk of Fame, does Leo nod in solidarity? Even though Kanye West's girlfriend's lifestyle is exactly the kind of sh-t Leo abhors? He never calls the paps. Full Story

Kanye West is mad again. And when something is picking Kanye’s ass, it’s always a good day. This is Kanye’s new cause of the day:
Kanye West thinks Kanye West’s girlfriend should be on the cover of VOGUE. Anna Wintour isn’t feeling that. If she’s not feeling Victoria Beckham, you can imagine how she feels about Kanye West’s girlfriend. And Kanye thinks this is an injustice.
“There’s no way (Kanye West’s girlfriend) shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue. She’s like the most intriguing woman right now. She’s got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday,” West told Ryan Seacrest on the radio yesterday.
Kanye’s rationale for having his girlfriend on the cover of VOGUE is because last week she posted a picture of her ass in a bikini on Instagram:
“And collectively, we’re the most influential with clothing. Read Full Intro
Jimmy Kimmel gave Kanye West almost 30 minutes last night and just pressed play. Kanye did as Kanye does: he performed, he delivered, he entertained. “We are here to entertain you,” he preached. Always.
Because whatever your feelings about Kanye – you hate him, you love him, you defend him, you mock him – it’s undeniable that Kanye is never boring. Kanye is Must See TV, any kind of TV – late night talk show TV, documentary interview TV, award show TV, even telethon TV. This is a gift. It’s a gift most of his peers don’t have. If you gave Justin Timberlake 30 minutes to freestyle, unscripted, with no distractions, no background music, no music at all, no moves, and no flash, he couldn’t paralyse you the way Kanye can. Kanye is riveting – whether you actually agree with what he’s saying or not, he is riveting, compelling, arresting, and, again, so f-cking entertaining. Read Full Intro
“If you’re a Kanye West fan, you’re a fan of yourself.” – Kanye West
No idea. Do you know what that means? Wait, don’t answer that. Don’t even bother to think about that. It doesn’t matter. Because the point isn’t to make sense of it. The point is to ENJOY it. And you have to enjoy Kanye. Kanye is, officially, a better interview that Karl Lagerfeld now.
Have you seen the Kanye interview with Zane Lowe on BBC1? I’ve taken my time with it this week – it’s been busy, sure, but also, for this particular interview, you can’t multi-task, you know? You have to focus, completely, on what he’s saying AND on how his face is moving for the full, awesomely ridiculous effect. It’s WONDERFUL. He’s WONDERFUL. Read Full Intro

Which do you prefer? Do you prefer Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP with the multiple wig changes and the cardboard cut-out? Or was Kanye’s stripped down silhouette for Blood On The Leaves more your jam? I give it to Yeezy. I liked the look of his body dancing in shadow. I did not like the high school musical low budget production Gaga served up to open the show. Full Story

Do you remember much from 2009? Do you remember conversations and your favourite outfit and what you ate for lunch every day? I definitely don’t. But you know what I do remember? Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift at the VMAs – mostly because MTV and Taylor Swift don’t want us to forget it. Full Story
The name of the child is North. North West. Before we get into what we think, we should evaluate what we now know. North West. I have heard no middle name yet. It’s a play on Kanye’s name…Ergo? This is KANYE’s daughter. This is not the daughter of Kanye West’s girlfriend. Full Story
Kanye West’s girlfriend gave birth to Kanye West’s baby the other day. Beyonce posted a message on her Tumblr to congratulate them. Which we’re supposed to take as evidence that they don’t hate each other although I take it more to mean that it was out of respect for Kanye. Full Story

Sometimes things trend on Twitter and it’s nonsense. Sometimes what’s trending on Twitter deserves to be trending. Kanye West’s interview with the NYT is trending. And so it should. This is amazing. It is the most amazing interview you’ll read all month, maybe even all year. Full Story

But first, Justin Timberlake on his 5th time hosting Saturday Night Live. I mean...it never sucks. You can tell he’s worked. He’s put in the work. Especially in those increasingly tiresome “Liquor-ville/Vegan-ville/Whatever-ville” sketches. He is WORKING there. And I appreciate that. Full Story
