Kanye West Uses Kim Kardashian’s SNL Monologue During Donda 2 Performance Experience

Washington [US], February 23 (ANI): Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West celebrated the release of his album ‘Donda 2’ in a performance experience at the Loandepot Park in Miami.

As per People Magazine, West’s performance also included a nod to estranged wife Kim Kardashian when he sampled a line from her ‘Saturday Night Live’ monologue. The ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ alum, 41, made her hosting debut on the sketch comedy show in October. At the beginning of the song ‘Sci-Fi’, Kardashian’s voice can be heard saying, “I married the best rapper of all time. Not only that, he is the richest Black man in America. A talented, legit genius who gave me four incredible kids.”

The entire stadium was pitch-black throughout the performance, except for a burning house — surrounded by water — in the centre of the stage to symbolize West’s childhood home in Chicago.

The ‘Donda 2’ performance experience saw appearances from The Game, Migos, Jack Harlow, Da Baby, Alicia Keys, Playboi Carti and more artists featured on the latest project.

The ‘Eazy’ rapper, 44, also brought out Marilyn Manson, despite the previous backlash to the musician’s appearance at West’s ‘DONDA’ listening party last year.

Attendees at the event included Elon Musk, French Montana and Rick Ross, among others.
‘Donda 2’ is now available to stream on West’s Stem Player.

Julia Fox, Kanye West Call It Quits After Whirlwind Romance

Washington [US], February 15 (ANI): Over a month after rapper Kanye West and actor Julia Fox first sparked romance rumours, the duo has called it quits.

A rep for the ‘Uncut Gems’ actor confirmed to People magazine in a statement, “Julia and Kanye remain good friends and collaborators but they are no longer together.” Fox recently wrote in a since-deleted statement, captured and re-shared by the Pop Crave Twitter account and TMZ, “Y’all would love if I was soooo upset! The media would love to paint a picture of me a sad lonely woman crying on a plane by myself but it’s NOT TRUE!! Why not see me for what I am which is a #1 hustler. I came up yall lol and not only that but Kanye and I are on good terms! I have love for him but I wasn’t in love w the man Jesus Christ what do u guys think I am 12 years old?!”

She added, denying reports that she was crying at an airport over the split: “and for the record the only time I cried in 2022 was on Feb 6th on my dead BFF bday. Anyway If u want the full tea ur gonna have to buy the book when it comes out.”

A source told People magazine a few days ago that Fox and West’s whirlwind romance was winding down.

“Kanye and Julia both have separate busy lives. Julia lives in New York City and Kanye has been in Los Angeles. The distance makes it hard,” the source said.

“They are still in touch and will see each other when they can. Kanye really likes her. It’s fair to say that they have cooled off a bit, though,” the source added.

The Grammy-winning rapper and 32-year-old actor first sparked romance rumours over the New Year’s Eve holiday after spending time together in Miami. The stars then took their budding romance to New York City, where they were photographed on multiple outings together.

Days later, on January 6, Fox dished on the duo’s chemistry in an essay for Interview magazine.

“It was an instant connection. His energy is so fun to be around. He had me and my friends laughing, dancing, and smiling all night,” she wrote at the time.

West and Fox, whom she dubbed ‘Juliye’, made their red carpet debut as a couple on January 23 at Paris Men’s Fashion Week. He later helped the actor celebrate her 32nd birthday on February 2, arranging for an extravagant celebration at Lucien in New York City.

Fox recently praised their relationship when she said they’d been having “a lot” of ” ‘us’ and ‘we’ conversations.” She said on the Call Her Daddy podcast: “He wants me to be the best version of myself. That is always the conversation. Always. Like how am I gonna live up to my full potential, which I think is amazing.”

Last month, Fox said on her Forbidden Fruits podcast that her relationship with the musician was not a PR stunt. She said, “There’s always people that think every single celebrity scandal is a setup. I personally don’t.”

Fox added at the time that they were taking it day by day and seeing where things go:

“Listen, for right now, I’m just living in the moment and I don’t have any expectations — there’s no labels, none of that. It’s just people that make each other feel better.”

West split from his wife Kim Kardashian in February 2021 after nearly seven years of marriage. She’s been dating comedian Pete Davidson since October.

On Valentine’s Day, West took to Instagram to confess he’s still hoping for a reunion with Kim.

“I DON’T HAVE BEEF WITH KIM I LOVE MY FAMILY SO STOP THAT NARRATIVE IM NOT GIVING UP ON MY FAMILY,” he wrote alongside a recent photo of Kim and Pete.

He added, “I BOUGHT THIS COAT FOR KIM BEFORE SNL I THOUGHT IT WAS PARTICULARLY SPECIAL I HAVE FAITH THAT WE’LL BE BACK TOGETHER.”

Kim, who shares four kids with the rapper, has not responded to his public plea.

Kim Kardashian Speaks About ‘Attacks’ She’s Facing From Kanye West On Social Media

Washington [US], February 5 (ANI): Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has for the first time spoken publically about “attacks” she has faced from her ex-husband Kanye West on social media.

The beauty mogul seems clearly angry over Kanye posting his grievances about Kim posting a screenshot of her and North West on TikTok. With the picture, he wrote, “Since this is my first divorce I need to know what I should do about my daughter being put on TikTok against my will.”

Kim has come out swinging, saying, “Kanye’s constant attacks on me in interviews and on social media is actually more hurtful than any TikTok North might create. As the parent who is the main provider and caregiver for our children, I am doing my best to protect our daughter while also allowing her to express her creativity in the medium that she wishes with adult supervision — because it brings her so much happiness.”

Kim clearly made a point of saying she is the primary caregiver.

She added, “Divorce is difficult enough on our children and Kanye’s obsession with trying to control and manipulate our situation so negatively and publicly is only causing further pain for all. From the beginning, I have wanted nothing but a healthy and supportive co-parenting relationship because it is what is best for our children and it saddens me that Kanye continues to make it impossible every step of the way.”

She is also making it clear that there have been many other co-parenting issues, some that haven’t surfaced publicly.

“Hopefully he can finally respond to the third attorney he has had in the last year to resolve any issues amicably,” Kim concluded the post.

This is an exception post coming from Kim, who has stayed silent over the past social media bullying by her ex-husband.

Kanye and Kim’s followers long time beef after their messy divorce is all known in the entertainment industry. This is not the first public dispute where the rapper shaded his ex-wife over co-parenting.

Last month, when Kim threw a birthday party for Chicago, Kanye was extremely upset, claiming he wasn’t invited. However, it was earlier reported by TMZ that Kim later invited Kanye to the party. The rapper showed up and thanked everyone, but Kim.

The former celebrity couple share 8-year-old daughter North, 6-year-old son Saint, 3-year-old daughter Chicago, and 2-year-old son Psalm.

Kim filed for divorce from the ‘Donda’ rapper in February after nearly seven years of marriage. The duo began dating in 2012 and got married in 2014.

Kanye who is currently dating actor Julia Fox has recently been in the headlines for being vocal about wanting a second chance with Kim, who is currently dating Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson.

According to People Magazine, on Sunday, the couple attended the KENZO fashion show as part of Paris Men’s Fashion Week in France. They sported matching denim ensembles with black gloves.

A source previously told People Magazine that despite West’s new relationship with Fox, “he’s still telling people that he wants to have (Kim Kardashian) back and he is willing to make appropriate changes to do so.” Kardashian filed for divorce last year.

Fox’s outing with West on Sunday comes about shortly after the actress said she isn’t bothered by the chatter surrounding their relationship on Friday’s episode of her ‘Forbidden Fruits’ podcast.

While opening up about how she’s evolved from being an “attention seeker” in her younger days, Fox appeared to address headlines over her connection to the Grammy-winning musician.

“It’s funny cause I’m getting all of this attention, but I really couldn’t care,” she said. “People are like ‘Oh, you’re only in it for the fame, you’re in it for the clout, you’re in it for the money.’ Honey, I’ve dated billionaires my entire adult life, let’s keep it real.”

Fox noted that she only cares about creating art and “putting things into the world.”

“Watch my movie, read my book. That is more thrilling to me now than eyes on me. I couldn’t care less,” she claimed.

Kanye West Slams Kim Kardashian For Raising Their Kids By Nannies, Cameras

Washington [US], January 16 (ANI): Rapper Kanye West took a dig at his ex-wife Kim Kardashian and slammed her for raising their brood in limelight and with the help of nannies.

Aiming at the Kardashians and his ex-wife Kim’s new beau-comedian Pete Davidson, West dropped a new track ‘Eazy’, on Saturday. From expressing his eagerness to beat Davidson, West also took a dig at Kim for how he thinks she is raising their brood.

Right off the bat, Kanye says “How I ain’t bring nothing to the table when I’m the table?” going on to rap that he is going to “turn up the music, wake up the neighbours,” among other incendiary lyrics.

He hits the point home even more so later when he raps “N****, we havin’ the best divorce ever // If we go to court, we’ll go to court together // Matter of fact, pick up your sis, we’ll go to Kourt’s together.”

He adds, “watched four kids for like five hours today,” echoing what he claimed about allegedly being restricted from time with his children. But then, he raps, “I got love for the nannies, but real family is better // The cameras watch the kids, y’all stop takin’ the credit.”

Speaking of his kids, Kanye raps, “When you give ’em everything, they only want more // Boujee and unruly, y’all need to do some chores // Rich-a** kids, this ain’t yo mama house // Climb on your brother’s shoulders, get that Top Ramen out.”

And, of course, the Davidson line everyone knew was coming … “God saved me from that crash // Just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s a**.” In the same breath, he shouts out his new girlfriend, Julia Fox, rapping “And my new bi**h bad // I know Illuminati mad.”

The song is getting tons of love, with people saying West is back to rhyming like he used to during his ‘College Dropout’ days.

Kanye West Admits To Punching Man After He Was Accused Of Battery

Washington [US], January 15 (ANI): American rapper and songwriter Kanye West has admitted to punching a man after he was accused of battery this week.

According to People magazine, the 22-time Grammy Award winner detailed his side of the altercation that took place early on Thursday morning in downtown Los Angeles in his upcoming episode of ‘Hollywood Unlocked’. “So as far as the paparazzi goes, it wasn’t a fan,” he claimed, as per a sneak peek.
“It was 3 a.m. in front of the Warehouse. I’m saying, ‘You don’t know what I’m dealing with right now.’ I just finished these two songs, I came from the studio,” West said.

He added, “And this dude, he just had this real attitude, like, ‘What you gonna do? And see that?’ Imma just tell you, that blue COVID mask ain’t stop that knockout, you know what I’m saying?”

West was named as a suspect in a battery report from Thursday’s altercation, an LAPD source previously confirmed to People magazine, saying West jumped out of his car outside Soho Warehouse and punched a man who approached him for an autograph, knocking him to the ground.

The rapper said that the man wasn’t a fan, but was “taking autographs to make money on them,” noting: “This is the same as the paparazzi, this is not a fan. This is someone who is using your image, who probably never listened to your songs.”

In a video of the incident obtained by TMZ, West could be seen screaming “get away from me” at a woman who told him, “I am your family,” as a man lay on the sidewalk nearby. “No! No, you were supposed to talk to her,” West shouted back at her.

The ‘Donda’ artist explained that the woman was his cousin, who had just returned from attempting to speak to his estranged wife Kim Kardashian about personal parenting matters.

He continued, “So I end up getting into an altercation with the guy that wanted to make money off of my autographs, then my cousin pulls up and she’s talking to me. I say, ‘Give me a breather. Get away from me.’ She is not taking accountability for the fact that she did not do what she was supposed to do, and that added to me being in a mood where I was like, ‘I am not going to have this.'”

The alleged altercation came after a night on the town with his girlfriend Julia Fox, Madonna, Antonio Brown, Floyd Mayweather, Evan Ross and others at Delilah. “They all had dinner in the private dining room. They came separately but just ended up having dinner together. Kanye and Julia wouldn’t leave each other’s sides,” a source told People magazine.

In 2014, the rapper was arrested for “assaulting” a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport. At the time, he was sentenced to 250 hours of community service, two years probation and 24 anger management sessions.

Similarly, West was arrested in 2008 for vandalism and battery over an altercation with photographers at the same airport, where he allegedly damaged a camera.

He was later released on USD 20,000 bail, and the case was dismissed after he paid for the photographers’ broken equipment attended anger management counseling, as per People magazine.

Madonna Shares Pictures With Kanye West, Julia Fox

Washington [US], January 15 (ANI): Pop star Madonna recently shared pictures from her recent dinner night with friends, including the much-talked-about couple Kanye West and Julia Fox.

In the pictures, Madonna and Fox could be seen sprawling across a couch. In other pictures, Fox and West were seen cuddling up.

Sharing the pictures, the ‘Hung Up’ star appeared to hint that she’s enlisting Fox for her upcoming biopic.

“Went to dinner with Julia to talk about my movie and some other folks showed up…” she captioned the post.

Julia also re-shared the picture of herself with Madonna, calling the latter “Mother.”

For the unversed, Madonna has been working on a movie about her roller-coaster life throughout the pandemic.

Speaking about the new celebrity couple– West and Fox confirmed their relationship with a steamy photoshoot earlier this month; and are the talk of the town ever since.

The source close to the rapper told People magazine that he “has no plans at this time to start a long-term relationship.”

Last month, a source told the outlet that West is still hoping that he and his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, can work things out — even as she takes steps to make their split legally official. The couple shares four kids together.

Meanwhile, Kardashian has been romantically linked to Pete Davidson since October. She and the ‘Saturday Night Live’ star, marked the start of 2022 with a romantic getaway to the Bahamas.

Kanye West late-night walk with Julia Fox video

               

Washington [US], (ANI): A day after their romance was made publically official; rapper Kanye West shared a video of his late-night walk with girlfriend-actor Julia Fox.

Taking to his Instagram stories, Kanye shared a video of him capturing Julia walking beside him.
The actor was clad in full black attire, inclusive of an overcoat, pants, black boots and a black bag. Fox looked absolutely glamorous in the video.

West is dating Fox amid finalizing his divorce with reality TV star and beauty mogul Kim Kardashian, with whom he shares four children. Kim had filed for divorce from West in February after nearly seven years of marriage.

She is currently dating SNL star, Pete Davidson.

The ‘Donda’ artist and the ‘Uncut Gems’ actor most recently confirmed their romance publically by sharing a series of the intimate photoshoot they had at their second lavish date.

In a recent interview with an outlet, Fox shared that she and Kanye have been spending time together after meeting on New Year’s Eve.

The actor said she met West in Miami on New Year’s Eve and felt an instant connection between them. “His energy is so fun to be around. He had me and my friends laughing, dancing, and smiling all night,”

Fox added that she and West flew back to New York City, where they watched a play and had dinner at one of her favourite restaurants. The actor also revealed that the duo then headed to a hotel suite filled with clothes for an impromptu photo shoot, that West directed “specially” for her.

She said it felt like a “Cinderella moment” to her.

“Like, who does things like this on a second date? Or any date! Everything with us has been so organic. I don’t know where things are headed but if this is any indication of the future I’m loving the ride.” Fox said in a recent interview.

Kanye West Will ‘Fight’ To Be With Kim Kardashian Again

Seems like rapper Kanye West still has hopes of reconciliation with his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, despite the latter recently filing documents to move forward with her divorce.

The beauty mogul said in a recent court filing that “no counselling or reconciliation effort” could repair her marriage to Kanye West. But appears like the rapper is still hoping he and Kardashian can work things out. A source close to the rapper told People magazine that family and marriage are “important” to West and that he is a “family man at heart [whose] love and commitment” to his ex and kids “will never change.”

“He’s not giving up without a fight. Kim is the mother of his children and he’s not going to just let that go. No matter if they’re husband and wife, they’ll always support each other. Her recent filing or any filing for that matter doesn’t mean he’s going to stop fighting to win her back,” the source said.

Kardashian filed for divorce from the rapper in February after nearly seven years of marriage and four children– North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 3 and Psalm, 2). They started dating in 2012 and wed in May 2014.

In her latest filing, the beauty mogul has asked to have child custody and property matters be separate from her marital status. She has also requested to be declared legally single and that her maiden name be restored.

Despite all that, the source said that the rapper “hasn’t lost hope to be with Kim again,” and as he goes out more and he’s holding events and concerts, he’s always inviting Kim and will continue to do so. His sole priority is making sure she’s taken care of and treated like a queen, whether they’re married or not. That will always be a priority and that will never change.”

Kardashian has recently been dating ‘Saturday Night Live’ comedian Pete Davidson. They were first linked in October and have since been publicly spotted spending time together on multiple occasions. Though Kardashian argued that West has been unresponsive in legal matters pertaining to their divorce, he has repeatedly made public pleas to get back together with his ex.

Last Thursday, West dedicated his song ‘Runaway’ to Kardashian while performing at the Free Larry Hoover concert with Drake at the Los Angeles Coliseum. “I need you to run right back to me, baby,” West said in his lyrics, adding, “more specifically, Kimberly.”

Kardashian was in attendance with their two eldest kids, North and Saint, as well as her sister Kendall Jenner and mom Kris Jenner. “Kim will always bring the kids to events that are important to Kanye. Co-parenting and making sure her kids are happy will always be her priority,” a source previously told People magazine, adding that daughter North “is especially a fan of her dad’s music.”

However, the source noted that Kardashian “has moved on” but “she knows it’s difficult for Kanye to deal with,” adding, “She isn’t surprised that he pleads in public for her to run back to him. She is just trying to be respectful about it.”

Kanye West, Drake Team Up For Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert

Grammy-winning artists Kanye West and Drake took the stage together for the first time since ending their feud as they hosted the sold-out ‘Free Larry Hoover’ benefit concert.

As per People magazine, the concert took place at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Thursday night. The two rappers walked side by side down the steps of the Coliseum as the choir sang West’s ‘Ultralight Beam’ in a powerful show. West took the stage first to debut ‘Praise God’.

He then “took it back to day one,” performing classics including ‘Gold Digger’, ‘Touch the Sky’, ‘Stronger’ and ‘All of the Lights’.

Several pictures and videos of the two rappers from the event have been doing the rounds on social media.

Drake later took the stage to perform some of his biggest hits, including ‘No Friends in the Industry’, ‘Life Is Good’, ‘IMY2’ and ‘Laugh Now Cry Later’.

“I appreciate Kanye for having me up here tonight,” Drake said.

“It’s important that we make this happen. When we were walking through the arches right there it felt like a dream. It felt surreal. It was something I always wanted to do being on stage with my idol as he’s running through one of the best catalogs in music, period,” Drake added.

To end the show, West hit the stage with Drake after changing into matching denim jackets and jeans to perform ‘Hurricane’, his song with The Weeknd, and ‘Come to Life’. He also performed ‘Bound 2’, ‘N–s in Paris’ and ‘Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1’.

The show ended with both artists performing Drake’s song ‘Forever’. The two embraced for a hug and then walked off stage together.

The concert comes about a month after the two rappers — along with J Prince — met up and said it was “time to put [the feud] to rest.”

“I’m making this video to address the ongoing back-and-forth between myself and Drake,” West said at the time in the video.

“Both me and Drake have taken shots at each other and it’s time to put it to rest,” added West.

Drake and West agreed to perform on Thursday to benefit Hoover, who has been incarcerated at the ADX federal prison in Colorado, where other criminals, such as El Chapo Guzman, are locked up, reported People magazine.

The show was meant to bring awareness about his incarceration and Hoover’s family’s efforts to free him after the 2018 Free Step Act gave federal prisoners with drug-related charges the chance to reduce their sentences. Neither Drake nor West made mention of Hoover during the entirety of the show.

West raps with Hoover’s son Larry Hoover Jr. on his new album Donda on tracks ‘Jesus Lord’ and ‘Jesus Lord Pt. 2’. In the songs, Hoover Jr. promises his father won’t be involved in gang activity was he to get out. Hoover is now 71.

Hoover was convicted on 40 counts related to leading the Gangster Disciples and trafficking drugs from 1970 and 1997.

As for the rappers’ feud, it dates back several years and resurfaced this year after the releases of West’s ‘Donda’ and Drake’s ‘Certified Lover Boy’. On the albums, they both share disses about each other.

Though the Canadian rapper never calls out West by name, fans were quick to dissect several lines on multiple songs from ‘Certified Lover Boy’ that appear to take digs at him, most notably on ‘7AM on Bridle Path’.

The concert also marks Drake’s return to the stage after appearing alongside rapper Travis Scott during last month’s deadly Astroworld Festival where 10 people were killed. Drake is among those named in several lawsuits related to the tragedy, including one USD 750 million lawsuit.

As for West, he’s been at the centre of controversy due to welcoming musician Marilyn Manson, who has been accused by more than a dozen women and sued by four for allegations of sexual and physical abuse, on his ‘Donda’ album and at a recent Sunday Service.

Kanye West Wants To ‘Restore’ Family With Kim Kardashian

Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, hopes to restore his family with his estranged wife and beauty mogul Kim Kardashian.

According to E! News, the rapper, on Wednesday, gave an impassioned speech about the importance of family while visiting the LA Mission homeless shelter. He said he wants to “restore” his family with Kim and their four kids, North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.

“Now it’s time to restore the families this Thanksgiving. It’s all about restoring the family. This morning I felt so blessed to wake up, to work out and be able to drive to my house and see my wife and my kids,” he shared.

Ye continued, “That’s right. I said my wife and my children, and I want everyone to pray for my family.”

It seems the rapper is intent on getting back with Kim, who recently started dating ‘Saturday Night Live’ comedian Pete Davidson.

Ye added that he believes people can change, explaining, “The narrative that God wants is for you to see that everything can be redeemed in all these relationships. We made mistakes. I’ve made mistakes.”

“I’ve publicly done things that were not acceptable as a husband. But I’m here to change that narrative,” he admitted.

Kim and Ye split up earlier this year, with the ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ alum keeping their USD 23 million Hidden Hills home in the divorce proceedings.

However, Ye shared in his speech that he has a “house right next” to their former shared abode so he can be “next to my children as much as possible.”

“I’m doing everything to be right next to the situation,” the ‘Donda’ performer said.

The Grammy nominee explained that he’s trying to express himself in the “most sane” and “calm way possible,” adding that he thinks it’s important to discuss the subject so people see the importance of uniting families.

“I am saying this because if the enemy can separate Kimye, there is going to be millions of families that feel like that separation is OK. When God, who has already wanted his soul, brings Kimye together, there’s gonna be millions of families that are going to be influenced and see that they can overcome, could work as a separation of trauma,” he continued.

Ye previously said that he isn’t ready to give up on his marriage to Kim.

During an appearance on Revolt TV’s Drink Champs podcast, he shared, “At the end of the day, I ain’t got the paperwork yet, so I’m going to come on this joint and try to save my family and keep my family together.”

He added that their four children “want their parents to stay together.”

A source close to Kim told E! News in November that the makeup mogul is ready to move on from their relationship. According to the insider, “There’s no chance for reconciliation at this point.”

A second source noted that Kim “tried for a long, long time” to make their marriage work but eventually “reached her breaking point.”

Kanye West, Drake Set To Host A Benefit Concert In Los Angeles

After recently ending their decade-long feud, rappers Kanye West and Drake are now all set to collaborate for an event.

The rappers will host a benefit concert at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on December 9 to raise awareness and support for Larry Hoover and the cause of prison and sentencing reform, reported Variety.

West shared a poster for the event on Instagram on Saturday with the caption, “God’s Plan.”

Drake also shared a photograph detailing the upcoming concert along with fingers crossed emoji.

West and Drake have had a soured relationship for years, but they appeared to have buried the hatchet recently when they reunited at a Dave Chappelle comedy show and partied together in Toronto.

Kanye West, Drake End Beef By Partying Together In Toronto

Grammy-winning artists Kanye West and Drake appear to have made amends. The rappers were recently seen partying together at Drake’s Toronto mansion.

The ‘Donda’ rapper shared a photo of himself alongside Drake and J Prince on Instagram on Tuesday, captioning the post with a single dove emoji.

J Prince also shared the image, writing that the group had a “beautiful night” in Canada on Monday.

In his caption, J Prince also alluded that Drake agreed to perform with West on stage next month. In a video last week, West proposed the idea as a concert to benefit Larry Hoover, the co-founder of the Gangster Disciples gang, who is currently in prison in Colorado.

“Let’s make history December 9 Free Larry Hoover Concert,” J Prince wrote in the caption.

In a post of his own, Drake shared two videos from the occasion. The first video features comedian Dave Chappelle addressing a crowd in what seems to be Drake’s Toronto home.

The second video shows the ‘Certified Lover Boy’ rapper with his arm around West as they look down at the camera and dance to music playing in the background. “You have reached your destination,” Drake captioned the post.

The meetup comes about a week after West addressed his years-long feud with Drake in a video shared by J Prince on Twitter, saying that he was ready to put it “to rest.”

“I’m making this video to address the ongoing back-and-forth between myself and Drake,” West said in the video. “Both me and Drake have taken shots at each other and it’s time to put it to rest.”

Inviting Drake to perform with him, West concluded, “I believe this even will not only bring awareness to our cause but prove to people everywhere how much more we can accomplish when we lay our pride to the side and come together.”

The feud between the two rappers has spanned years. West just recently mentioned his back-and-forth with Drake when he appeared on the Drink Champs podcast on November 4, reported People magazine.

Earlier this year, their feud intensified with the release of West’s ‘Donda’ and of Drake’s ‘Certified Lover Boy’, which quickly became Spotify’s most-streamed album in a single day. The release also made Drake the most-streamed artist of 2021, with the most-streamed album of 2021, on Apple Music.

Though the Canadian rapper never calls out West by name, fans were quick to dissect several lines on multiple songs from ‘Certified Lover Boy’ that appear to take digs at him, most notably on ‘7AM on Bridle Path’.

Although West and Drake started off as friends and collaborators — West directed the 2009 video for Drake’s breakout single ‘Best I Ever Had’ — their relationship has gone south over the years.

They’ve argued about West’s alleged involvement in the 2018 leak that Drake has a son — Adonis, now 4 — and rumours that he had hooked up with West’s now-estranged wife Kim Kardashian West, who has denied any romance with Drake.

Kanye West Dedicates Sunday Service To Astroworld Victims

Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West, whose legal name is now Ye, dedicated his Sunday Service to the victims of rapper Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival concert.

As per Variety, the performance is currently streaming on Triller, Revolt TV, and YouTube. The visual for the service — attendees dressed in black as beams of light illuminate a vast grey space and the Sunday Service gospel choir sings — evoked the feeling of a wake. The prayer service came as officials on Sunday continued to probe the incident, which occurred as concertgoers were crushed as Scott performed his set on the stage.

Tragedy struck the Astroworld festival on Friday night when a surge in the tightly packed crowd for Scott’s set left at least eight concertgoers dead and over 300 others injured. A 14-year-old and a 16-year-old were among the casualties, with other victims ranging in age from 17 to 21.

Scott has promised to fully cooperate with authorities as a full investigation into the incident continues.

“Anytime I could make out, you know, anything that’s going on, I stop the show and help them get the help they need,” Scott said in a video posted to his Twitter on Saturday night.

“I could just never imagine the severity of the situation. We’ve been working closely with everyone to try to get to the bottom of this,” he added.

“I’m absolutely devastated by what took place last night,” Scott wrote in a statement on Saturday morning. “My prayers go out to the families and all those impacted by what happened at Astroworld Festival.”

50,000 fans attended the show, which led to a surge during Scott’s performance at the festival outside NRG Park.

At a press conference following the concert, Houston fire chief Samuel Pena clarified the timeline. He said that the crowd began surging forward at 9 pm, as there was panic involving people running for safety.

At that point, Scott paused his set several times to ask security to help out fans, and members of the fire department were sent into the dense crowd to rescue the injured.

Kanye West Officially Changes His Name To ‘Ye; Shares His New Haircut

New beginnings started for American rapper Kanye West as he officially changed his name to Ye.

A Los Angeles judge on Monday approved a petition by the ‘Runaway’ hitmaker Kanye West to officially change his name to be known simply as ‘Ye’, with no middle or last name, reports Deadline. Kanye filed the petition on August 24 and stated he was making the change for personal reasons. In fact, in 2018, he released an eighth studio album titled ‘Ye’.

After getting legal approval to change his name, Kanye took to Instagram and posted a photograph of his new haircut. The picture shows Kanye with his back toward the camera while wearing a silver chain that bears the name of his son Saint. The caption is the sign for Japan’s yen currency and China’s yuan.

Kim Kardashian, Kanye West Divorce Is Full Steam Ahead Despite Reconciliation Rumours

Amidst the gloom and doom of their divorce news, a ray of hope beckoned when Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were spotted hanging out, Kim attending the various ‘Donda’ listening party events, Kanye showing up for Kim’s ‘SNL’ debut, and on and on! But, seems that is in the rearview because the divorce is barreling down the tracks.

According to the legal docs obtained by TMZ, Kim is now the sole owner of the Hidden Hills estate, where the couple lived together, before splitting up. Kanye has signed over his rights to the property and the transfer was recorded with the County of Los Angeles on September 28.

The divorce is full steam ahead, and this is the steaming signal that there will be no reconciliation.

As per TMZ, in return for becoming the sole owner of the Hidden Hills estate, Kim paid Kanye USD 20 million.

Reportedly, that was the price they paid in 2014 before Kanye razed the house to the ground and rebuilt it, and it is now worth around USD 60 million.

Kanye worked with architects and designers from around the world to finish it and transform it into a complete masterpiece. The house contains a basketball court, detached gym, massive swimming pool, and 2 kitchens.

Kim and her four kids have remained in the home since February when she filed for divorce, and sources close to the beauty mogul told TMZ that the home is the most important part of the property settlement for Kim.

Kanye West To Open Donda Academy Prep School In California After Mother’s Name

American rapper and songwriter Kanye West has reportedly planned to open a prep school in California.

According to People magazine, multiple reports suggest that the 44-year-old rapper is looking to open a private school called the Donda Academy, named after his late mother Donda West. The institution is said to open at the site where a former private school once stood, between Simi Valley and Moorpark, a news outlet reported.

A website that appears to be for the school promises that it will provide students with “a world-class education that includes a rigorous core curriculum, and an emphasis on sustainability, creativity, critical thinking and problem solving,” making them the “next generation of leaders, thinkers, and innovators.”
West’s Donda Academy plans to craft a basketball program to rival that of Sierra Canyon, the school that LeBron James’ son Bronny James currently attends.

Donda Academy, which is said to be backed by Adidas, will count junior Jalen Hooks as a member, the outlet added. Hooks already has offers from a variety of colleges, including Michigan State and Purdue, among others.

“It’s just one of those things you can’t pass up,” Hooks told a newspaper about joining the academic institution. He said, “It was more of a family decision, too. All of us just felt like it was a chance to reach my full potential and grow and get ready for the college level.”

Reports suggest that other athletes including Robert Dillingham, Jahki Howard, and Zion Cruz are also linked to the school.

As per People magazine, the Donda Academy website appears to currently be taking applications, though it does not include information about tuition or opening date for the school.

Nearly eight months since filing for divorce, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are still a part of each other’s lives, and their latest night out together is proof of the fact.

As per E! News, the friendly exes were photographed out for dinner at Nobu in Malibu with friends on Thursday. The duo put their most stylish foot forward for the occasion. The reality star sported a head-to-toe purple outfit with a brown coat layered on top. She finished the evening look with sunglasses and a long braided ponytail.

As for the Grammy-winning rapper, Kanye stuck to his usual athleisure in a black shirt, dark pants, a cap and a bag hanging around his neck.

While it is unclear if there was anything more behind the outing, it’s certainly not the first time the parents of four have been seen together since Kim filed in February to end their nearly 7-year marriage.
Back in August, they were also seen together grabbing a bite to eat in Malibu. And, of course, fans can’t forget the moment the SKIMS mogul appeared in a wedding gown at Kanye’s Donda listening party that same month.

In fact, according to a source, their official split may not be as imminent as a divorce filing may suggest. As the source told E! News in September, Kim is “open” to the possibility of getting back together.
“Kim is not rushing the divorce,” the source shared.

“She and Kanye are in a good place right now and she is not on a rushed timeline to push the divorce forward,” the source added.

Instead, “Kim wants to enjoy this time,” the source noted, “and be a family unit.”

Meanwhile, “Kanye has expressed that he wants her back, and Kim is open to it,” the source shared, “but wants to focus first on rebuilding their foundation and friendship back stronger.”

The ‘Skims’ founder addressed the end of their marriage during a ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ reunion in June.

“I honestly don’t think I would even say it here on TV but it was not one specific thing that happened on either part. I think it was just a general difference of opinions on a few things that led to this decision,” Kim told host Andy Cohen at the time, as per Fox News.

Kim filed for divorce from the rapper after reports surfaced claiming the two had separated. They share four children together: North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.

Kim Kardashian, Kanye West Recreate Their Wedding At ‘Donda’ Listening Event

For the Chicago listening session of ‘Donda’ recently, rapper Kanye West appeared to relive his wedding to ex-wife Kim Kardashian and fans couldn’t believe their eyes.

Kanye’s long-awaited album’s third listening party featured plenty of guest appearances including musicians DaBaby and Marilyn Manson, for which the rapper came under fire. But fans got excited when his ex-wife Kim appeared wearing a wedding dress at the event.

According to E! News, the audience at the event was stunned by the final song when Kanye appeared to be set on fire and then was greeted by a woman, who wore a Balenciaga Couture wedding gown and a veil covering her face–which was indeed the rapper’s ex-wife Kim.

With her face covered with a veil, the beauty mogul, in a viral video could be seen stepping out in a bridal dress during the final song of the night ‘No Child Left Behind’.

Kim’s sisters, Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian, also reacted to the moment on their social media handles.

Kylie, who is expecting her second child with Travis Scott, took to her Instagram Story and shared a string of snaps of the special Kim-Kanye moment.

Meanwhile, Khloe took to her Twitter handle at the end of the night to post, “insanely beautiful!!!”
E! News also obtained a viral video posted by a fan account, in which Kanye and the bride could be seen holding hands as they made their way out of the venue after the album had finished playing.

Apart from this, Kanye’s event brought plenty of other shockers. Fans observed that contributions from both Jay-Z and Kid Cudi, which were heard during previous versions of the album, were not included in this third listening event.

The major surprising contributions were from DaBaby and Marilyn Manson. DaBaby, who recently faced backlash over homophobic comments he made earlier this summer appeared to replace Jay-Z with his verse. He was captured standing on the replica of Kanye’s childhood home’s porch at the stadium.

Meanwhile, Marilyn was also seen standing on the porch of the home throughout the event, reported E! News.

Marilyn has been facing several lawsuits, alleging him of rape and physical assault. In May, he was accused by a former partner of rape and assault, and in February, he denied other allegations of abuse against him.

Another star who joined the porch was dancehall singer Shenseea. The singer posted an image of herself on her Instagram Story after the event.

As per E! News, one song that was missing from the latest version of the album was one in which Kanye sang about losing his family, which was heard during both of the previous listening events.
The first listening event was held at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium on July 22, and the second was held at the same venue on August 5.

Kim was a spectator in the crowd for the first two events, joined by the couple’s kids- 8-year-old North West, 5-year-old Saint West, 3-year-old Chicago West, and 2-year-old Psalm West.

‘Donda’ is named after the Grammy winner’s late mother Donda West, who died at the age of 58 following plastic surgery complications in 2007.

With an original release date set in 2020, then on July 23, 2021, and again on August 6, 2021, it is still unclear when the official album of ‘Donda’ will drop.

Kanye West To Collaborate With Marilyn Manson On ‘Donda’ Album

Grammy-winning artist Kanye West is collaborating with Marilyn Manson on the rapper’s upcoming album ‘Donda’, despite the rocker facing allegations of sexual abuse and physical violence from more than 15 women.

Hours after Manson appeared onstage alongside West at his ‘Donda’ listening party at Chicago’s Soldier Field, a spokesperson for Manson told People magazine that the rocker and rapper will continue to work together on the release of West’s new album. “Marilyn Manson’s voice is featured on DONDA. And he will continue to conceptually collaborate with Ye on the DONDA project,” the spokesperson said.

The new collaboration between Manson and West, who seemed to previously sample the rocker’s song ‘The Beautiful People’ on ‘Black Skinhead’, comes as the rocker faces accusations of sexual abuse and domestic violence from more than 15 women, including actors Evan Rachel Wood and Esme Bianco.
The singer has denied the allegations and has not been charged with any crime till now.

Bianco is also one of four women who have sued the singer for sexual abuse. Along with accusing him of physical violence and sexual assault, Bianco and Manson’s ex-girlfriend Ashley Morgan Smithline also accused the singer of sex trafficking.

“I live in constant fear even to this day,” Smithline told People magazine after filing her lawsuit against Manson.

“I am seeking justice because I want to move forward and heal from the terrible abuse I faced. I want Brian Warner to be held accountable once and for all,” she added at the time.

As for ‘Donda’, West hosted a third listening party for the unreleased album on Thursday where he welcomed Manson and DaBaby, who was recently under fire for homophobic comments at a concert on stage.

‘Donda’ is named after the Grammy winner’s late mother Donda West, who died at the age of 58 following plastic surgery complications in 2007.

Kim Kardashian: Kanye West Helping Me To Become More Confident

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may be splitting up but that doesn’t seem to have affected the bond they share. In a recent interaction with Kristen Bell for a podcast, Kim opened up about Kanye helping her to become more confident. The KUWTK star credited West for teaching her to “live in the moment” as she praised the rapper amid their divorce.

During her appearance on Bell’s We Are Supported By podcast, Kim spoke about Kanye being a positive influence in her life who changed her way of thinking, especially when it comes to putting herself first. Talking about the life lesson she learned from him, Kim said, “I got to a point — and maybe being in a relationship with Kanye for a decade and someone that absolutely didn’t care about likeability factor or what any of perception of him was as long as he was true to himself — that taught me so much in the best way, of, just being me and living in the moment.” 

Kim further added how it was Kanye who helped her to stop being a “people pleaser” and it helped her become more confident in herself. Kim particularly spoke about how the change in her attitude made her become more confident on Keeping Up With the Kardashians as well and she noted that she didn’t mind becoming the “b***h of the week” on the show as long as she was being herself.

Kim filed for divorce from West in February this year. Although despite their split, the duo has remained supportive of each other. Kim recently showed support for West by attending both his album listening events for Donda in Atlanta. The duo also headed for a family outing recently which seemed to hint at how well they are handling their co-parenting duties.
