Hello all! So much happens in a month it seems, but yet here in Tinseltown it only takes a few hours for something big to boil over. So many in’s and out’s, and break ups and make ups. Smh. KimYe gets the cover of Vogue after months of speculation; Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are on the outs; is Khloe really hooking up with The Game?? Rihanna and Drake still hookin up on the low low, while Drizzy’s throwing shots at Jay-Z?? It’s pure madness!!
It’s finally happened: hell has frozen over and Anna Wintour let it happen. After months of rumors and speculation, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have graced the famed cover of the April Vogue edition. Social media is the only end responsible on why these two fame thirsty mavens have landed this cover: the cover itself reads, “World’s most talked about Couple.” Gee…I wonder who talks about them besides all of us?! It goes without saying that without Kanye’s influence, Kim wouldn’t be gracing the cover of any fashion magazine b/c let’s face it: she only started pronouncing, wearing, and BEING couture fab after their alliance. I have to say that while I am all about the couture fab and chic, I myself am not sure that a lot of it is complimentary, but I can’t deny that the girl photographs amazingly well, especially that too being said that Annie Liebovitz, the legend of all legends, captured the shoot. Anna Wintour, after months of hearing rumors that Kanye was working overtime to get Kim on the cover, finally addressed them: “Part of the pleasure of editing Vogue, one that lies in a long tradition of this magazine, is being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it. I think we can all agree on the fact that that role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T. (Or perhaps that should be to a K?) As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancee on Vogue’s cover. He did nothing of the sort,” she explained. “The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn’t true.” Amen to that! If you haven’t already, pick up the latest edition of Vogue: it does not disappoint.
Who says marriages don’t last in Hollywood?! Oh yeah: that’s right, they don’t. Gywneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have actually called it quits after over a decade of marriage. In our world, we call this a “divorce” and where they come from, it’s now called “conscious uncoupling.” Smh. Are you kidding me right now?? Call it what it is: it’s a break up. Apparently the separation will be pretty amicable as they don’t plan to fight over custody of the children, or any financial arrangements. Reason being: they’ve both done things in the marriage they don’t want leaked into the media, and are avoiding any court battles at all costs. THAT has me so nosy right now, and wanting to be all over that because I really want to know, who did what?? What are they so scared of? What do they NOT want showing up in the media??? Is it perhaps the very public out in the open makeout session Paltrow had going on with ex Donovan Leitch at the Dodgers game back in September…with kids in tow???? What about rumors of Martin cheating on Paltrow with Kate Bosworth? Or allegations of the both of them having an open marriage? I mean if it works for Will and Jada, can’t these two work it out?? Whatever the reasons may be, we hope for the kids sake, these two can always keep it pleasant because after all…why must the children always be the ones who suffer?
The media coverage just never ends with the Kardashians…and here I go adding to it!! This family definitely knows how to stay relevant, I will give you that! Khloe Kardashian has always been my favorite, and has had the roughest-toughest year. It seems like she is definitely letting off some steam from her separation with estranged hubby Lamar Odom, and she has been stepping out!! But with The Game???? These two are EVERYWHERE together: clubbing, partying, twerking, exercising, hiking at Runyon and squeezing in workout sessions: I mean damn!! But are they dating?? Reports surfaced of their extremely tight bond, with the usual dismissals of course. I mean, she’s even being linked with Ray J at this point!! (Really?? Ray J?? C’mon- didn’t Kim hit THAT first??) Funny thing on this, is that The Game himself has denied rumors of the alleged hooking up by stating that him and Khloe definitely aren’t dating, but that he did take Kim Kardashian on a date once- through a drive through. Romantic. Maybe The Game is just keeping Khloe company through this rough time in her life: after all it has been a rough one. Their friendship spans over a decade, and why shouldn’t friends twerk on each other, right? Is it just me, or is anyone else’s eyebrows raising at that?? Khloe is apparently rumored to be speaking with estranged hubby every morning as well, checking up on him and making sure he really is alright: guess some wifely devotion will never die out. She’s even having a basketball court put into her new home: how’s that for supportive? All I gotta say is: Khloe, watch your back and be a strong woman because I would hate to see your life erupt again, and I say you go out and do you: if that means The Game, or Ray J, or whoever, do it: just don’t fall for any of that crap from Lamar again.
Can we please talk about how in the hell Rihanna gets herself all these men?? She changes men like she changes clothes- and nobody has ever seen her in the same damn thing twice!! Makes me wanna go shopping with all the changing she does!! Her and Drizzy have been hot and heavy for a minute there, and it never seems to stop either!! Ex-boo seems to be incarcerated so why not enjoy some Canadian lovin from a man that knows how to treat a lady right?? That’s what happens when you’re raised by your mama- mama knows how to teach you some respect for women!! These two have been out and about, dressed in each other’s clothes, Rihanna’s wearing his jackets everywhere, spending nights exclusively with him, sending out cryptic tweets, etc. The two were just seen last week, leaving a London nightclub together, all over each other, holding hands as they left. Drake is rumored to be really into her, and she is over the moon for him too, as she has never been treated so well. Drizzy doesn’t seem to be sparing any expense for lady love either, gifting her with Cartier diamonds. Drake better be careful about that relationship though and tread softly. We all know the Bajan beauty’s mentor Jay-Z and Drake have been throwing down lately and beefing it out. Reports say its because Drake said that all Jay-Z raps about is art and that that’s corny, while Jay-Z fired back with a little bit of his own fire in Jay Electronica’s song, We Made It: “Sorry Mrs. Drizzy for so much art talk. Silly me, rappin’ ’bout shit that I really bought / While these rappers rap about guns that they ain’t shot / And a bunch of other silly sh*t that they ain’t got.” I actually hold Jay-Z on a level higher than that, so that news really upset me, to tell you the truth. Maybe Rihanna flew to Drake’s concert in London to see her boo, and try to patch up the differences between her love and mentor. I certainly hope so: it would be a pity for HOV to involve himself in something that should be left to the younger rappers.
I will say, I am besides myself waiting to peruse the latest edition of Vogue which just hit my doorstep: can not wait to see the amazing couture and the Liebovitz shots: sure to be a stunner. I’m sad about the Chris Martin-Gywneth Paltrow thing: you would think a couple that’s been together that long would’ve actually made it. Then again, maybe Hollywood is not one for “happily ever after” and those are just created for us on the silver screen. If Khloe is hooking up with The Game, I say go for it: you got my vote girl, because The Game is freakin awesome and its about time she had some fun. Rihanna and Drake: no words. Enjoy yourselves with that young love!! Until next time, dolls: stay fab!!
