Kim Kardashian Makes Pitiful Excuses for Kanye West’s Shitty Slavery is a Choice Comments

Seriously, what is it with the Kardashian women and their affinity for choosing jackasses as partners?

A few months ago, when Kanye West was having his usual outburst of verbal diarrhea, he made this statement on the subject of slavery:

“When you hear about slavery for 400 years — for 400 years?! That sounds like a choice. Like you was there for 400 years, and it’s all of y’all? It’s like, we’re mentally imprisoned.”

This statement caused significant outrage and there was quite the kerfuffle throughout the Internet. I think it’s safe to assume that Kanye is not the thinking before speaking type. There doesn’t seem to be any funnel between his brain and his mouth (yes, I know the man has an actual mental illness, but if he is still willfully not doing anything about it, he’s still a dickhead).

However, Kim Kardashian now insists that her husband didn’t really say that, or he may have said something, but that wasn’t what he meant. She had this to say in an interview with  TMZ Live.

“Kanye’s slavery comment, he never said that. That was just the headline. If you listen to what he said, he said ‘slavery was 400 years. If it’s going to be another 400 years, that sounds like a choice to me.’ He didn’t say ‘slavery is a choice.’ He was saying if you’re going to still be enslaved for another 400 years, then that’s some bullshit.”

That…that makes no sense whatsoever. Kim, I know you’re trying to stand by your man, but the only bullshit I’m smelling right now is your piss-poor excuse for your husband’s idiotic comments.

Kim continued to try and feebly explain Kanye’s dumbass behavior:

“When he gets ramped up, he can’t control what he says, he can’t let it go. He loves being ramped up. He’s like ‘I feel powerful when I’m ramped up. I don’t want to be so suppressed. Yeah, I say crazy shit but I’ve always said crazy shit. That’s why I’m Kanye.’”

Kim, you just described the average two-year-old child. “He can’t control what he says.” “He loves being ramped up.” “He doesn’t want to be suppressed.” Yeah, this is how toddlers act when they’re still learning how to be human beings. This is not the behavior you should find acceptable in a 41-year-old man. And you should recognize this behavior because you have three small children at home! Well, actually, scratch that. As long as Kanye is off his meds, you will have four small children.

Kanye West is Furious Over the Kim Kardashian-Ray J Tape (No, Not THAT One)

Kanye West knew what he was getting into when he married Kim Kardashian.

Or so he thought, at least.

ray and kimye

The rapper knew that his wife had become famous for her plowing of Ray J on camera, as the former couple had collaborated on a sex tape titled Kim Kardashian Superstar that banked them both millions.

Indeed, Kanye was familiar with this tape.

So was most of the American public.

But a new Kim Kardashian-Ray J video emerged this week -- and multiple insiders have confirmed that it's thrown West for quite a loop.

The dude is really pissed off.

Kim Kardashian Gives a Stare

You've likely heard about it at this point, right?

Radar Online obtained footage filmed at some point during Ray J and Kim's courtship, which lasted from approximately 2003 through 2006.

The raunchy tape features Kim sucking on a penis-shaped bong that is placed between Ray's legs, while also taking a hit of marijuana straight from her then-lover's mouth.

You can click HERE to read more about it and to find a link to the video.

It's from well over a decade ago, but Kanye was apparently unaware it existed; and no one wants to be reminded that his or her spouse had wild and fun times with someone else, you know?

Very Serious Kimye

“Kanye is not happy about the latest Kim and Ray J tape," a source tells Hollyoow Life, adding:

"Kanye is furious, has a bunch questions about the penis pipe tape and feels pretty sure Ray J is behind the latest leak."

Wow. That has to be the case, doesn't it?

Ray J was pissed a few days ago that Kim said during an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians that she was high on ecstasy when she f-cked him on video.

So releasing this new video would be the perfect revenge.

Ray J Selfie Alert

In case you have not yet heard, Ray J hit it first when it comes to Kim and Kanye.

Adds Hollywood Life:

"Kanye is demanding some answers, he wants to know why Ray J would leak this tape, and if Ray didn’t leak, then who did?

"While Kim is embarrassed over the whole situation, Kanye is upset and feels disrespected."

Meanwhile, a second insider alleges that Kanye hates to be reminded of his wife's past.

Particularly the part of her past when she films herself taking it from another guy.

"At one point Kanye was all about the sex tape with Kim and Ray J, but now that he is married and a father to Kim’s kids it burns him to see that the tape is still referenced and people still see it and that it is still a thing," this source said, concluding:

"He is upset that Ray J will always be remembered for the tape. But Kim is trying to reassure him that he should move on form it and focus his attention on more important things.

"She doesn’t want it to become a thing even though he is starting to make it a thing."

You know where this is all leading, don't you?

A Kim and Kanye sex tape that West directs in order to prove that he's the best at giving it to his better half.

You heard it here first.

Lorde to Kanye West: Don’t Steal Ideas From Me or ANY Woman Again!

Last week, Kanye West was forced to flee as shots were fired on set. Also, everywhere near his primary residence is on fire.

Now, he's facing accuastions from Lorde that he totally ripped off her stage designs for his shows.

And she has the photo comparisons to back up her claim.

Kanye West and Lorde

Kanye West and Kid Cudi's "Kids See Ghosts" Tour has attracted the wrong kind of attention.

Lorde, the absolute legend who won a Grammy before graduating high school, took to her Instagram Stories.

There, she shared a series of images noting what she found to be a suspicious similarity between her tour's stage design and Kanye's.

The suspended box design, creating a second floor to the stage without taking up any stage space, is pretty difficult to miss.

Did Kanye really steal the work?

Lorde suggests so with a few words.

Lorde accuses Kanye of stage design stealing 01

"I’m proud of the work I do," Lorde wrote in reflection.

"And it’s flattering when other artists feel inspired by it," she continued.

Lorde clarified about that flattered feeling: "to the extent that they choose to try it on themselves."

"But don’t steal," she insists.

"Not from women or anyone else," Lorde writes. "Not in 2018 or ever."

Lorde accuses Kanye of stage design stealing 02

Es Devlin is a designer who has worked closely with Lorde.

"It’s hard to come up with stuff that feels new," Lorde shared in 2017.

"And with the tank it felt weird and interesting and quite specific to me," Lorde shared.

She spoke of her collaboration with Devlin: "The two of us just built it from the ground up, bouncing ideas back and forth."

Devlin has also very notably worked with Kanye for many, many years.

In an apparent response to Lorde's post, Devlin made a post on Instagram showing a similar "box" in the opera, Carmen, by Georges Bizet.

Kim Kardashian accuses Saint Laurent of stealing Kanye stage design

Interestingly, this isn't the first time that someone has noticed that Kanye's stage design seems similar to another.

Last time, it was this image (above) of hanging lights.

Kim Kardashian herself took aim at Saint Laurent, suggesting that Kanye's set design had been ripped off.

(One could argue that no one gets to lay claim to the concept of hanging lights, but it really doesn't matter)

That makes defending Kanye against Lorde a little complicated.

That is, assuming that Ye has any defenders left who aren't in his bed or on his payroll.

Taylor Swift Kisses Lorde

Some could cynically suggest that Lorde is being opportunistic.

Lorde is famously friends with Taylor Swift.

Even more famously, Taylor and Kanye have a serious beef.

In 2016, Kim orchestrated Taylor's temporary downfall. Now, however, Taylor is back.

Meanwhile, Kanye chose 2018 as the year to purge himself of any lingering goodwill that the public may have for him.

Is Lorde just kicking Kanye while he's down by attacking his art?

Kanye with Passion

So, did Lorde jump the gun by indirectly accusing Kanye of ripping off her work?

Did Kanye and Lorde just come up with similar ideas?

(Great trains run along the same tracks, if Kanye is still considered to be "great")

Or did Es Devlin rip off a design from an opera and then pass it off to both artists?

We would suggest that it's more likely (and also kinder) to suggest that no one is stealing from anyone.

Stages only have so many possible designs, folks.

That said, we can understand why Lorde might be sensitive on the topic.

There is a widespread phenomenon, from business meetings to the art world, of men duplicating a woman's ideas and receiving credit for it.

It's good to be on guard for that -- even if you might, occassionally, be mistaken.

I Love It! Saint and North West Hilariously Dress Up as Dad Kanye and Lil Pump for Halloween

Halloween is a family affair!

For the holiday, Saint and North West didn’t have to look far from home for costume inspiration as the siblings’ Halloween looks were both inspired by dad Kanye West.

On Wednesday night, little Saint morphed into his father while his cousin Reign Disick dressed up as Lil Pump from the rappers’ music video “I Love It.”

Kim Kardashian shared a series of photos of the epic costumes on Instagram simply captioning it “I love it.”

In the first shot, Saint, 2, can be seen smiling widely dressed in Kanye’s massive box costume with the “Donda” chain and oversized slides. Meanwhile, Reign, 3, a.k.a. Lil Pump, 18, wore the rapper’s exact silver chain with white Yeezys.

In the second shot, both boys were pictured smiling. The next post was a video of Kim begging Saint and Reign to keep a straight face by saying “no cheese,” before he and Reign tumbled over due to the weight of the costumes.

Kourtney Kardashian also shared the same photos with the same caption. Meanwhile, proud dad Kanye posted a photo of his son on Twitter, captioning it “Scoop.”

Of course, Reign and Saint weren’t the only ones to pay homage to the Chicago rapper.

North, and Kourtney and Scott Disick’s daughter Penelope also dressed up like Kanye and Lil Pump but took their inspiration from the duo’s Sept. 30 SNL performance outfits.

Penelope, 6, wore Kanye’s sparkling water ensemble as North, 5, rocked Lil Pump’s Fiji water bottle look.

Hours before sharing the “I Love It”-inspired costumes, Kim, Kourtney, Khloé Kardashian, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner shared photos of the family’s most epic sister Halloween costume to-date.

In photos shared by Kim, the sisters are seen channeling their inner Victoria’s Secret Angels wearing sexy white lingerie looks, massive angel wings (supplied by Victoria’s Secret themselves!) and crystal-encrusted high heels as they strutted in unison for the camera before heading to a Halloween party.

Kim tweeted a behind-the-scenes photo of her look writing, “Thank you @VictoriasSecret for sending us actual runway looks and real wings to borrow for the night!!! OMG a dream come true! Got to be a Victoria Secret Angel for the night! & Kendall got good practice lol.”

Kanye West Is Done Getting Political

Kanye West has been talking a lot about politics lately, and it’s clear he sort of has about half of an idea what he’s talking about. He clearly believes himself to be some sort of iconoclast who is going to open all of our eyes about the way things really are, but he’s actually just a really good musician with really dumb ideas about most other things. He’s sort of like John Lennon in that he’s a giant narcissist who should probably do fewer interviews.

But Kanye got the message when the backlash began over Candice Owens’ “Blexit” project to convince black Americans to vote Republican. Owens credited Kanye with designing her Blexit merch, but Kanye wants nothing to do with it.

This really doesn’t come as a surprise, Owens is a bit of a… what’s a nice word for wackadoodle? Wingnut?

Kanye never struck me as a conservative. If you look at what he actually wanted to do, the only thing he was specifically talking about was ending the legal slavery of prison inmates, even though he went about it in the dumbest way possible.

None of those things are on Trump or Candice Owens’ agenda. To be fair, they’re not really on the Democrats’ agenda either, though the Democrats will occasionally pay lip service to one of them during an election year. Republicans are just actively against all of those things. And Kanye sounds like he figured that out.

It’s probably for the best that Kanye stops talking about politics and focuses on being the best Perrier bottle he can be.

That’s still so freakin’ adorable. I’m gonna wear that for Halloween and pick up so many women dressed as bottles of Cristal. Or named Cristal.

Kim Kardashian Says Kanye West Was Warned Not to Date Her Because of Her Sex Tape

Kim Kardashian West may not always agree with Kanye West, but she will never fail to support her husband.

“We’ve been through a lot together. You know, I’ve known him for 15 years now. Became friends with him maybe in like 2006, 2007. Met him in like . I’ve known him forever. He’s put himself up against the world for me when everyone told him, ‘You cannot date a girl with a sex tape. You cannot date a reality show girl. This is going to ruin your career.’ Everyone told him that,’ ” Kardashian West told Van Jones during a sitdown interview on Be Woke Vote.

Luckily, the rapper didn’t listen.

“To me, he was like, ‘Oh, you’re not going to tell me what to do. I’ll let you know that it’s going to be okay.’ And he always was that strength for me. So I’ll always love and appreciate him for always standing up for me,” said Kardashian West, 38.

“Even in like fashion. ‘You’ll never be on the cover of a magazine.’ And you know, amazing things have happened in that world or anyone that’s ever doubted us or me, he’s always been there to hold my hand and lift me up higher and give me the confidence. And so I’ll always do the same for him,”  the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star continued.

Although the couple has been married for four years and shares three children together — daughters North, 5, and Chicago, 9 months, and son Saint, 2 — they don’t see eye-to-eye on politics. While Kardashian West voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, West, 41, has been an avid supporter of President Donald Trump, frequently wearing a Make America Great Again hat.

When Jones pressed Kardashian West on West’s comments about abolishing the 13th amendment, the mother of three clarified that her husband isn’t always the best communicator.

“It takes him about four years to write a song to explain — to communicate what he wants to say. So when he tweets something in two seconds, what’s going on in his mind and what he thinks and what he’s trying to say, he might not be the best communicator, but he has the best heart and I know what he means. I believe in him and I believe that his message of what the hat represent to him is maybe different than what it represents to other people,” Kardashian West explained. “He’s very mindful about that. He doesn’t maybe express that. But what it mans to him is something totally different and I trust in him that he will explain that in his own way.”

Still, Kardashian West voices her opinions and suggestions to her husband in private.

“Afterwards, I might let him know that I can help him communicate that a little bit better and you know, we should work on that. He’s always like, ‘Yeah, but I already tweeted it.’ I’m like, ‘Well, what you tweeted isn’t what you just said to me over the phone.’ But sometimes people don’t have the long time to really hear him out and see what he has to say and the snippets,” she said.

While West’s political opinions may be controversial to some, Kardashian West commended her husband for defending his beliefs.

“You know, the good thing is, he’s so strong that he knows what he means,” she said. “The people around him knows what he means and the people around him let him know that what he said might not be what he means and tries to help him work on it. But I know his heart, so we’re working on expressing that.”

She added that West “will always do what he believes, whether it’s the popular thing or not. And he has said so many times, even on SNL, but I don’t know if it was on because it was at the end, ‘I do not agree with all of the policies. I don’t even know all the policies, I’m not political. I’m just saying this is what this represents to me and I will wear it because that’s what I feel.’ ”

“He wants to fight for free thought,” she said.

Kim Kardashian Says Kanye West Is ‘Harassing’ Her to Have More Kids: ‘He Wants Like 7’

Kanye West had babies on the brain on Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

While touring her new condo-turned-office with pal Larsa Pippen, Kim Kardashian admits that her rapper husband wants to keep expanding their family.

“How did you get so lucky with all your kids?” asks Pippen, 44. “They’re all so good.”

“Kanye wants to have more, though. He’s been harassing me,” says Kardashian, 38. “He wants like seven. He’s like stuck on seven.”

She and West, 41, share daughters Chicago, 8 months, and North, 5, and son Saint, 2.

“Okay, he needs to name his next album Seven and like lighten up on the kids situation,” Pippen cracks. “Seven kids is crazy!”

“That’s crazy. I could never, especially in like the world we live in,” says Kardashian, admitting that the onslaught of recent school shootings made her wary of bringing more lives into the world.

The slayings of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in February 2018 stuck a particular chord with the mother of three.

“I’ve been kind of hesitant about having more kids just because it literally keeps me up at night, thinking about how my kids will survive in a crazy world like this,” she says.

“I hear you. And people have been trying to kidnap, rob, take you, so that plays into all that,” Pippen says, referencing her friend’s harrowing experience being robbed at gunpoint in Paris in October 2016.

Later in the episode, Kardashian and West take North to the March to Save Lives in Washington, D.C., where the reality star feels inspired by the young activists who tell her the only way to really change America is to vote for politicians who support gun violence prevention in the midterm elections.

“I one billion percent believe that we need stricter gun laws,” Kardashian says. “We need background checks, you shouldn’t be able to walk into a store and buy a gun. And to hear that the kids have met with people numerous times and nothing’s been done is just so sad.”

Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on E!

How Marrying Kanye West Affected Kim Kardashian’s Independence: ‘You Have to Let It Go’

Kim Kardashian West thought of herself as a more independent woman before marrying Kanye West.

“I think being with a man like Kanye, you have to learn how to be a little bit not-so-independent,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star, 38, said during her appearance on the Alec Baldwin Show Sunday.

“I’ve always been so independent and working, and schedule, and when you get married and have a husband that has their career and then have kids, your independence … you have to let it go,” Kardashian West said, adding, “I had to learn that being with a man like Kanye.”

The couple, who married in May 2014, shares three children: daughters North, 5, and Chicago, 8 months, as well as son Saint, who turns 3 on Dec. 5.

RELATED: Kim Kardashian Explains the Upside of Kanye West’s Friendship with Donald Trump

“I let be who he wants to be. I let him have his own views and opinions, even if they’re different than mine,” Kardashian West told host Alec Baldwin.

As of late, the rapper, 41, has been outspoken about his support for President Donald Trump, and has been candid about his political views.

“I think it’s just having an open mind. I love to let my husband be who he is,” the KKW Beauty mogul said. “We definitely have conversations if I don’t understand something in private and talk about that.”

Kardashian West also recalled her early childhood when she was raised by late father Rob Kardashian Sr. and mother Kris Jenner, who was married to Bruce Jenner at the time.

“I grew up in a household where Bruce, my stepdad, had one political view and maybe my real father had a different political view, or my mom,” she said. “We would just always talk about it and be really open about it. It was always okay to have different views.”

West has never been afraid to speak about his political stance, both on record and off, as evident by his lyrics. Though her husband has incorporated politics in his career, Kardashian West revealed that she is more cautious.

“As far as when it comes to my business, to me it’s all very separate,” she told Baldwin.

Numerous sources recently told PEOPLE that West’s behavior takes a toll on his wife. But the mother of three does not shy away from making her feelings known to her husband.

“She lets him take the lead, and she never disagrees with him publicly,” one insider said. “She has decided that’s the right move, but she isn’t scared to share her disagreements with him behind closed doors… Don’t think that she’s afraid of him, because she’s not. She’s just managing him the best she can.”

In recent weeks, West gave a pro-Trump rant after appearing as the Saturday Night Live musical guest and called first for abolishing and then for amending the 13th Amendment. In addition, he spoke about his mental health, his fondness for the Make America Great Again hatHillary Clinton and the Kardashians during his lengthy conversation with the president when he visited the White House.

“Kim finds Kanye brilliant, so it makes her upset when he goes on these public rants and come across as someone who isn’t well. It’s stressful for her,” a separate source said.

Kanye West Wants to Turn Uganda Into ‘Jurassic Park’

I’m not sure Kanye West can tell reality from fiction anymore. I’m almost 100% sure that when Kanye showed President Trump his idea for an “iPlane” that it was drawn in crayon. And now Kanye West met with another world leader, President Yoweri K Museveni of Uganda, and told him he should turn his country into Jurassic Park. Guys… guys… I think Kanye West thinks there are still dinosaurs. Like, seriously, his Jurassic Park idea was part of of a plan to increase tourism, according to Page Six.

And sources told Page Six on Monday that West is most likely going to extend his trip in Uganda after talking with the president about tourism, telling Museveni he thinks the country should be like “Jurassic Park.”

“Kanye wants to get involved in creating a tourism and hospitality school for higher education,” says a source.

I’m not sure I want a dude who thinks there are dinosaurs in charge of higher education.

During the meeting, we hear that Museveni also asked Kardashian about why she needed to leave early, and that the reality star told him she had to go back to work.

“The president then asked what her job is and Kim, very politely, said that she had a TV show with sisters and family, and they were all waiting for her return,” the source said.

I find it hard to describe what Kim Kardashian does “work.” Watching her show is work, making it just her and her sisters being extra. Museveni tweeted about the meeting afterwards.

Yeah, dude, but his idea to increase tourism is dinosaurs. Sweet shoes, though.

Melania Trump’s Spokesperson Calls for Boycott Against T.I. Over ‘Disgusting’ Stripper Video

A spokesperson for the first lady is firing back after rapper T.I. posted a video of himself watching a Melania Trump lookalike strip in the Oval Office.

Stephanie Grisham, Mrs. Trump’s director of communications, posted on Twitter Saturday calling the video “disgusting.” She added, “How is this acceptable? … #BoycottT.I.” and tagged the rapper, 38, in the tweet.

Asked for further comment, Grisham told PEOPLE on Tuesday: “Like it or not, she is the first lady and this is the White House. It’s disrespectful and disgusting to portray her this way simply because of politics. These kinds of vulgar attacks only further the divisiveness and bias in our country — it needs to stop.”

T.I., who is an outspoken critic of Melania’s husband, President Donald Trump, dropped an NSFW clip on Friday on his social media accounts, which mocks Kanye West‘s meeting last week with the commander in chief, 72.

After watching the president fly away on his helicopter, T.I. then stands behind POTUS’ desk watching a woman enter the room.

Soon she strips off her green jacket — a replica of the real Mrs. Trump’s “I Really Don’t Care, Do U?” trench — and stands naked on the desk, stroking T.I.’s tie. They later leave together and are seen spray painting over Trump’s portrait and trashing the White House.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

“Dear 45, I ain’t Kanye,” T.I. captioned the minute-long video, which is a promo for his new album, Dime Trap.

Friday’s post came a day after T.I. shared a long rant against West following the 41-year-old Yeezy owner’s bizarre meeting with the president.

All I can say is… I’ve reached my limits,” T.I. wrote. “This is my stop, I’m officially DONE!!!! Trump & his Lil Cookie Boy.”

RELATED VIDEO: Kanye West Meets with President Trump in the Oval Office

“At one time it was a pleasure to work alongside you…” T.I. added of his former collaborator, who is a vocal Trump supporter. “Now, I’m ashamed to have ever been associated with you.”

“Don’t follow this puppet,” T.I. continued. “Because as long as I’ve lived I’ve learned that it benefits a man nothing at all to gain the world, if to do so he must lose his soul. We just saw Mr. West’s Soul on auction. If you listen closely you can hear the tears of our ancestors hit the floor.”

Since West’s visit with Trump, other celebrities have spoken out about West — including Diddy50 CentAva DuVernay, and Jeffrey Wright.

Kanye West Isn’t Crazy, Has a Mensa Level IQ

A sleep deprived Kanye West returned to Twitter in a 9 minute rant from Africa to tell us he’s not crazy and that he doesn’t want people touching his brain. In fact, he just got back his IQ score and it’s Mensa level. A minimum Mensa level score is 130.

He goes on about some other stuff, but like every one of Kanye’s rants, you shut it off 2 minutes in and try to push everything you just heard out of your mind because stupidity could be contagious.

Kim Kardashian Shows Off Her Curves While Traveling with Husband Kanye West to Uganda

Kanye West has made good on a promise to take a trip to Africa — and he took his wife Kim Kardashian along with him.

The famous couple arrived at Uganda’s Entebbe International Airport on Friday and later checked into a local lodge with their daughter North.

In images published by TMZ and the Daily Mail, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 37, wears a monochromatic outfit featuring a grey shirt with a matching mini backpack and a pair of form-fitting bike shorts.

Adding a pop of color into his low-key ensemble, the rapper, 41, wore a blue sweatshirt with a purple cap.

Blending her parents’ style, North, 5, was seen in a pair of bright green pants with a matching top.

The couple plans to stay in Africa until Oct. 19, according to TMZ.

Earlier in October, West explained that he had pushed back the release of his album Yandhi in order to record in Africa.

“I didn’t finish it,” the rapper said during a TMZ Live interview, explaining that during a recent trip to Chicago he “felt this energy” and realized he needed “to go to what is known as Africa.”

He also remarked that he’d like to “have my kids in the studio and have my mic in the open so we can hear nature while we’re recording.”

Photos and videos shared on the popular Instagram account Team Kanye Daily indicate that the rapper has already set up a studio to finish recording the album, which is slated to be released on Nov. 23.

RELATED VIDEO: Kanye West Meets with President Trump in the Oval Office

In the weeks leading up the famous family’s trip, West went on a number of public rants that have raised eyebrows and generated concern for his wellbeing.

Kim is very uncomfortable and unhappy with the whole situation,” a source previously told PEOPLE about the Kimoji creator, who shares daughters North and Chicago, 8 months, and son Saint, 2½, with West.

“She finds Kanye brilliant, so it makes her upset when he goes on these public rants and come across as someone who isn’t well,” added the source. “All she can do is hope that he calms down mentally soon.”

On Thursday afternoon, during a meeting with President Donald Trump in the Oval Office, West — who avidly supports and voted for the president in the 2016 election — claimed that he was “misdiagnosed” with bipolar disorder. (The rapper also recently revealed that he is “off medication” he had previously been taking to treat the disorder.)

RELATED: Kanye West Reveals He Made Donald Trump an ‘Updated’ MAGA Hat: ‘Make America Great’

Since West disclosed that he is no longer taking his medication, people in his inner circle have been “telling him that he needs to get back on his medication, that he’s not doing well, that he’s not making any sense,” an insider told PEOPLE earlier in October.

And while the Kardashians have been an unwavering support system to him, the source said that “the entire family is at the end of their ropes, and stuff like this won’t help.”

“They’re trying to help him get things where they should be, and it’s going to be that much harder now,” the source added. “It’s a sad day.”

T.I. Takes Aim at Trump and Kanye West in New Music Video Featuring Melania Lookalike Stripper

T.I. has made his feelings about President Donald Trump and Kanye West well known, but in case there was any doubt, the Atlanta-based rapper’s latest video made things very clear.

On Friday, T.I. dropped an NSFW clip on his social media accounts that showed him posing as a secret service agent hanging in the Oval Office. After watching the president fly away on his helicopter, T.I. then stands behind POTUS’ desk watching a woman seemingly meant to be First Lady Melania Trump enter the room.

Soon she strips off her green jacket — a mock of FLOTUS’ “I Really Don’t Care, Do U?” trench — and stands naked on the desk, stroking T.I.’s tie. They later leave together and are seen wrecking the White House, spray painting over Mr. Trump’s portrait and more.

“Dear 45, I ain’t Kanye,” T.I. wrote of the minute-long video acting as a promo for his new album, Dime Trap

Friday’s clip came a day after T.I. posted a long rant against West following the 41-year-old Yeezy owner’s bizarre meeting with the president.

All I can say is… I’ve reached my limits,” T.I., 38, wrote. “This is my stop, I’m officially DONE!!!! Trump & his Lil Cookie Boy.”

“At one time it was a pleasure to work alongside you…” T.I. added of his former collaborator. “Now, I’m ashamed to have ever been associated with you.”

Coming to the decision wasn’t easy for T.I. (né Clifford Joseph Harris Jr.). But West’s meeting with Trump — and the rapper’s controversial statements there about racism — pushed him over the edge.

“This is the most repulsive, disgraceful, embarrassing act of desperation & auctioning off of one’s soul to gain power I’ve ever seen,” T.I. wrote. “You ass kissing and boot licking on a whole new level & I refuse to associate myself with something so vile, weak, & inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of ALL OUR PEOPLE!!!!”

“Don’t follow this puppet,” T.I. continued. “Because as long as I’ve lived I’ve learned that it benefits a man nothing at all to gain the world, if to do so he must lose his soul. We just saw Mr. West’s Soul on auction. If you listen closely you can hear the tears of our ancestors hit the floor.”

Since West’s visit with Trump, other celebrities have spoken out about West — including Diddy50 CentAva DuVernay, and Jeffrey Wright.

Drake Opens Up About Feud With ‘Manipulative’ Kanye West: ‘This Guy’s Trolling Me’

They’ve been feuding in the public eye for months, but on Friday, Drake gave fans insight into just why things went wrong between him and former friend Kanye West.

During a candid conversation on LeBron James’ HBO show The Shop, the Canadian rapper, 31, detailed the betrayal he felt when West dropped his album, Yeweeks before Drake’s own album, Scorpion.

Prior to the release, Drake claimed he and West had connected in the studio. There, West allegedly pressured Drake into revealing details about Scorpion, convincing him that he had good intentions and never revealing that he was working on an album of his own.

“He sold me on this whole speech of like, ‘I’m in a great place, I’m making money, and I’m a father, and I wanna be Quincy Jones and help you. But in order to do that, you’ve gotta be transparent with me, you gotta play me your music, and you gotta tell me when you’re dropping. And I know you don’t like to do things like that,'” Drake recalled on The Shop. “I guess we all kind of felt a genuine vibe from it, so I play him my music and I told him when I was dropping.”

It wasn’t just Drake playing music. West also allegedly played Drake beats from “Lift Yourself,” a song he would later release himself. But West allegedly never disclosed that, instead promising the tune to the Degrassi: The Next Generation alumni. “He played me ‘Lift Yourself’ and he was like, ‘Yo, you can have this if you want.’ And I was hype. I started writing to it,” Drake claimed. “And then he was like, ‘Yo, you gotta come to Wyoming.’ ”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Wyoming, as fans may remember, is where West was working on Ye. But Drake only got a clue about that when producer Noah “40” Shebib arrived in Jackson Hole ahead of schedule.

“He was like, ‘Man, I’m here a day early, man. Something’s off,’ ” Drake remembered on The Shop. “He’s like, ‘This guy is working on an album.’ And I was like, ‘For real? He just told me he wanted to work on, like he just told me he wanted to give me beats.’ And he said he wasn’t dropping until like October, November, something like that. And I’m like, ‘It’s all good, let’s just go, and let’s just see what it’s about.’ ”

It turned out to be all about West, according to Drake. “I went and ended up pretty much spending the majority of my time working on his music, just trying to like cook up ideas for him,” Drake said. “Just trying to lend a helping hand. … I spent all my time working on his music. We left with ‘Lift Yourself’ and a pat on the back.”

There was also some time for Drake to explore his own music. While in Wyoming, Drake claimed he played West his song “March 14.” The two even got into a discussion about their personal lives, with Drake showing the father of three a photo of his own son, who at that point was a secret. “I tell him I’m having trouble with my son’s mother. We had a conversation,” Drake said on The Shop.

Days later, news of Drake’s son emerged. Then came the news about West’s album and Pusha T’s album (which West produced) — their release dates coming suspiciously close to the time Drake was set to drop Scorpion. Next, West dropped “Lift Yourself” himself.

That’s when Drake said he realized, “Oh this guy’s trolling me. This was like a manipulative, like, ‘I wanna break you’ thing.” In response, Drake pulled away. “I said, ‘Alright, I’m gonna go back to distancing myself again. I know what this is.’ ”

Drake said he sat back and watched when Pusha T dropped his album, featuring the song “Infrared,” in which the rapper called out Drake for allegedly using a ghostwriter. “There’s a diss song toward me that you produced, that’s talking about writing?” Drake said. “I was just there with you as friends helping you, and now you’re dissing me? So I’m like, ‘Man, this is dark.'”

Fans know what happened from there. A war of words ensued, with Drake and Pusha T exchanging social media insults and diss tracks — the most scathing of which was Pusha’s “The Story of Adidon.” Among his attacks were rhymes mocking Drake’s newfound anger, supposed habit of walking away from relationships, his mother (by name), and one set of lyrics that exposed the fact that Drake had fathered a child with former adult-film star Sophie Brussaux (Drake would later verify the longtime rumors on Scorpion).

All of those were fine, Drake said on The Shop, but he said Pusha crossed a line by exposing Shebib’s battle with multiple sclerosis.

“People love to say, like rap purists and people who just love confrontation, they love to say, ‘Aye, there’s no rules in this s—.’ But there are f—ing rules in this s—,” Drake explained. “And I’m gonna tell you something: It’s like, I knew something was gonna come up about my kid. They had to add the deadbeat thing to make it more appealing, which is fine. I understand that. Even that, I was like, okay. The mom and dad thing, whatever. You don’t even know my family. But I’mma tell you, wishing death on my friend that has MS?”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Drake said it was so bad that he decided to walk away from the battle entirely.

“I study rap battles for a living,” Drake said. “Now when you mention defenseless people who are sick in the hospital, that passed away, that really sent me to a place where I just believed then — and I believe now — that there’s just a price that you have to pay for that. It’s over. You’re gonna get… someone’s gonna f—ing punch you in the f—ing face. The s—’s done, the event’s over. I wanted to do other things. I didn’t wanna further your reputation or your career by rapping back at you and having this exchange. And that was it for me.”

Drake did record a response, he said. It was locked and loaded to go, but he never released it. “I got home and I just listened back to it, and I was like, man, this is not something I ever wanna be remembered for,” Drake said on The Shop. “This is not even a place that I necessarily want to go. And to all the people who enjoy that, I tip my hat to you.”

Looking back on it, Drake says he’s glad he walked away. “I feel pure, I feel good. I took that energy and I put it into me, not you. You don’t get that from me.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Still, Drake did show Pusha T some respect for “The Story of Adidon” — calling it “a hell of a chess move.”

“The song, I thought it was trash. But the chess move was genius,” Drake said. “Back against the wall. I either go all the way filthy or I fall back and I have this sort of chink in my armor for the rest of time to a rap purist. Which is fine, I can live with that. I would much rather live with that than the things that I was about to… the research I did, the things that I was gonna say, and the places that I was gonna go. Not only for him, but the other guy too.”

Meanwhile, back in September, West appeared to be ready to put his feud with Drake behind him — apologizing in a series of tweets for his part in their ongoing feud.

“I understand where the confusion started,” West wrote. “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. We spoke about doing ‘Lift Yourself’ together I should have given you the opportunity for us to do this together before I released it. Since we were building as friends and brothers, I should have spoken to Pusha about the Quentin Miller bar. There should have been no songs with my involvement that had any negative energy towards you.”

“This is all Jedi level,” West said. “I will be coming to your show within the next seven days to give love and be inspired by the art you have created.”

It didn’t last long, though. Later that month, West jumped on Instagram and went on a rant against Drake (among others).

Kim Kardashian: Ready to Leave Kanye Over MAGA Madness?

Perhaps you've spent the past 24 hours trapped under a rock in a remote forest with especially crappy wi-fi.

If so, we'd like to both congratulate you on your escape and warn you that your return to society is about to be made bittersweet, at best:

Mr. MAGA

Yes, Kanye West paid a visit to the White House yesterday, and the ensuing madness made almost everything else Yeezy has done over the course of his bonkers career look downright quaint by comparison.

(Notice we said "almost." Referring to slavery as "a choice" is still tough to top in terms of batsh-t insanity.) 

There are too many insane quotes to catalog here, but suffice it to say, Kanye said his MAGA hat makes him feel like Superman, which in turn makes him want to play catch with his 2-year-old son.

Kanye with Passion

He then referred to himself as a crazy motherf--ker and basically admitted that he didn't vote for Hillary because she's a woman.

He capped the whole thing off by coming around the president's desk and hugging him, while Trump did that crossed arms, half smile thing he does when he's experiencing an emotion other than anger at the poors or anger at "the elites." 

"I tell you what, that was pretty impressive. That was quite something," Trump said in response to Yeezus' sermon, proving that the whole thing was a bit much even for the most effective agent of chaos the nation has ever known.

Kanye in the White House

Of course, we all knew Trump would blow a bunch of smoke up his new buddy's ass. 

No surprise there.

The reaction we're really interested in is that of Kanye's long-suffering wife, Kim Kardashian.

According to a new report from Radar Online, Kim was "horrified" by her husband's Oval Office tirade.

Kanye with Trump

An insider tells the site that the mother of three no longer feels safe in her own home and “has been getting threats" ever since the rant went viral.

"It has come to the point where she feels unsafe and fears for her safety and that of the kids," the source adds.

Rumors of Kim and Kanye getting divorced have been circulating for years, but they've never seemed more credible than right now.

Confessional Time

Sources describe the marriage as “extremely strained,” noting that Kanye is moving to Chicago soon, and Kim has no plans to follow him.

“She just cannot handle another breakdown,” one insider says.

We can't blame her for feeling stressed, but it's important to point out that Kanye made a good point or two amidst all that nonsense.

Very Serious Kimye

"There's a lot of things that affect our mental health that make us do crazy things," West opined at one point.

To be fair, we can't think of a single statement that more accurately encapsulates life in 2018.

It's just the sort of thing we wish he had tweeted instead of shouting to a bunch of reporters in the Oval Office while Kid Rock stood in the foyer waiting to offer his two cents.

Kanye West Wing: Kanye Had a Crazy Meeting With President Trump in the Oval Office

If there’s one thing I need more of in my life, it’s Kanye West. I really want to like Kanye because he was so good at knowing how much George Bush cared about black people, but he seems less good at identifying the level of caring about black people presidents have as he’s gotten older. I say this because West was in the Oval Office to meet with Donald Trump to talk about prison reform, something Donald Trump could not care less about.

Let me tell you a little bit about the Central Park Five. In 1989, a woman jogging in Central Park was attacked, raped, and nearly died, spending almost two weeks in a coma. Five young men, four black and one Latino, all under the age of 16, were rounded up by the police and coerced into confessing to committing the rape. DNA collected at the scene didn’t match any of the children and all came from a single person, but they were all convicted and spent years in jail. Before their trials, Donald Trump bought a full page ad in the New York Daily News calling for the death penalty to be reinstated, making obvious references to the assault. In 2016, after their convictions had been vacated because the actual perpetrator confessed, Donald Trump still insisted they were guilty.

No matter how cool Kanye West feels in his MAGA hat (he said it makes him feel like Superman), Donald Trump isn’t going to suddenly spearhead prison reform because Donald Trump doesn’t care about black people. You used to know when a president didn’t care about black people, Kanye, what happened, man?

One of the more interesting things to come out of the meeting is that Kanye West’s iPhone password is 000000. Seriously. If you ever find Kanye’s phone, you can unlock it but just hitting 0 until it unlocks. Just don’t expect any other famous rappers to answer your texts.

Here’s how Kanye describes meeting Kanye, according to the New York Times.

“You are tasting a fine wine,” Mr. West said, praising himself. “It has complex notes to it.”

I love that so much. It’s the kind of thing only a lunatic would say. And I’m not saying that Kanye liking Trump has anything to do with mental illness, it doesn’t. Kanye is rich, of course he likes Republicans now. At one point West said “We can empower the pharmaceuticals and make more money.” That’s all you need to know, Kanye thinks big pharma guys like Martin Shkreli need to be empowered to make more money. Of course he’s a Republican.

Kanye West Reveals iPhone Password to the World

Kanye West met with Donald Trump in the Oval Office on Thursday, October 11.

Reporters were on hand to document to totally ridiculous event, too, which included Kanye rambling about how much money he makes... how unfairly citizens treat the President... and why the 13th amendment really should be abolished.

(This is the amendment that calls for the permanent end to slavery.)

It was quite a spectacle.

And, as we summarize below, it even left President Trump speechless...

But there was one part of this meeting that Kanye may regret.

It wasn't anything he said to the Trump, despite how utterly insane and ignorant the rapper sounded during his 10-minute rant in front of the cameras.

Instead, it was the time he accidentally revealed his iPhone password to the entire world.

Really. This happened.

After rambling about such topics as bipolar disorder, “male energy,” Superman, alternate universes and the Unabomber, West said he wanted to show the President a photo.

It was off the type of plane he believes the Commander-in-Chief ought to fly in.

"This right here is the iPlane 1. It’s a hydrogen-powered airplane, and this is what our president should be flying in. Look at this, Jared,” he said, hilariously showing the picture to Jared Kushner.

Trump, evidently impressed, responded, “We’ll get rid of Air Force 1."

But here's the thing:

In order to get to the snapshot on his phone, Kanye had to type in his password.

And SportsNet New York’s Kenny Ducey was able to zoom in and get a close-up of West as he pulled out the piece of technology and typed in his secret number...

... which is not to secret anymore.

Watch the very brief video featured on this page to learn the password!

Kim Kardashian’ Disgusted’ with Kourtney and Khloé’s Japan Outfits: ‘It’s Actually Embarrassing’

Don’t come between Kim Kardashian West and one of her photo shoots.

On Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim, 37, planned a trip to Japan in late February to shoot a Yeezy campaign debuting season 7.

“I love working with Kanye in that way because he will listen to me on things that are important to me, and I’ll trust him on colors and fabrics,” she said of working with her husband Kanye West, 41. “So it really does work so well.”

“I only have a few days to get 20 looks shot,” she explained. “Japan is the campaign — we can’t recreate it. There are dozens of people working on this, so it is a lot of pressure. It’s my husband’s collection and I want to make sure that I do a good job and that he likes how everything turns out.”

But things got awkward when Kim decided to bring sisters Kourtney, 39, and Khloé, 34, on the trip — only to hate all of their fashion choices. After their first night out, she decided she had to say something.

“I can’t even eat dinner because I’m so disgusted with my sisters’ crazy outfits that completely don’t go with my look,” she said. “Like, I can’t take it.”

“My sisters look so crazy,” she went on. “It’s actually embarrassing. Kourtney with the Japanese-inspired outfit, and Khloé is wearing silver sequins, turquoise eyeshadow, huge chandelier earrings — they’re just like, completely clashing and making my outfit look really bad and they’re ruining everything. I need the Yeezy collection to be debuted and not all this crazy distraction in the background.”

Sitting down with her sisters the next morning, Kim didn’t sugarcoat her opinions, point-blank telling them they looked like “f—ing clowns.”

“I’m not kidding. This is not like, a tourist thing where it’s Halloween, dress up like a f—ing Japanese geisha, unless we’re at a geisha house,” she said. “I just think you’ve got to like, chill. Like, you can be cooler. I’m not telling you guys who to be and what to wear or anything, but I’m telling you who to be and what to wear. It could be time for a fashion overhaul, so that you stay young and relevant.”

And as the days went on, Kim’s criticism showed no signs of slowing down.

“Kourtney and all of the glam people, at this point, hate me, because I just killed all of their dreams,” she said. “And I don’t care. If you can’t take the criticism, you shouldn’t have come on this trip.”

At one point, she told Kourtney she looked “like a f—ing grandma, 100 percent.”

“You don’t look anything special,” she said. “You don’t look anything innovative and I think you have it in you.”

“Now I think Kim’s just being rude, and rude to everyone in glam,” Kourtney argued. “We’re all doing fun looks together and it’s not that serious. I think Kim and I don’t always see eye-to-eye as far of the importance of traveling and living in the moment. … I have three children and a full-time job. I don’t have seven stylists.”

Kim tried to explain where she was coming from: “I know that I’ve been kind of snappy and very opinionated, but I’m here for the Yeezy campaign,” she said. “I don’t have time to be beating around the bush here.”

“But I feel like we’re also here to have fun, wear some fun stuff, do some fun makeup, whatever,” Kourtney replied. “And by the way, I liked all my outfits.”

“I don’t know — I saw what I saw, and I saw f—ing clowns,” Kim said.

“Nobody wants to wake up and be criticized from head-to-toe the whole day long,” Kourtney sighed.

Her response shocked Kim, who pointed out that the “old Kourtney” would have fought back.

“So would you rather me f—ing say your f—ing outfits suck? You’re wearing a puffy vest, you have pink hair and turquoise shoes,” Kourtney retorted. “I didn’t come here to wear leggings that are see-through and show my a— off. Do you know easy it is to a bitch? I could be a bitch all f—ing day if that’s what you want. But guess what? It takes a lot more courage to show your feelings than to sit there and be a bitch.”

Eventually, Kim agreed that her delivery may have been a bit harsh and promised to work on it.

“I feel like I always pride myself in being honest,” she said. “I will definitely work on my delivery, but my message, I think is pretty clear.”

And it was all worth it the end, because she got all 20 looks shot.

“It was a lot of work but we did it, and with how amazing and pretty this city is, this campaign is going to be super dope,” she said. “Kanye is so happy with how the shoot turned out and I feel like it was a really good trip for us overall.”

Kanye West Deletes Twitter and Instagram Accounts After Trump Rant and Album Delay

Kanye West has quit social media again.

On Saturday, the 41-year-old “All Mine” rapper deleted both his Twitter and Instagram accounts.

His unexpected hiatus comes just a week after the outspoken Chicago native’s appearance on Saturday Night Live in which he surprised the audience with a pro-Donald Trump rant.

While wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, West wrapped up the show’s season premiere with a third musical performance and a lengthy speech about his support of the president that did not make it to air.

“He made it uncomfortable for the cast and  Adam Driver by calling them back onstage and not saying why and then went off on them,” a source told PEOPLE.

“The show had been supportive of all of Kanye’s visions throughout the week, even giving him the opportunity for the third song during the goodnight ,’ and then he surprised everyone,” the insider added.

West — who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder — recently revealed he’s off his medication and announced the delay of his album Yandhi, which was supposed to drop on Sept. 29.

“I didn’t finish it,” the rapper said about the album during a TMZ Live interview on Monday, adding that he was planning on going to Africa in two weeks to continue recording.

Explaining the rationale behind the trip, West explained that while he was in Chicago recently, “I felt this energy.”

“I felt the roots. I need to go to what is known as Africa — I need to find out what it’s really called… and just grab the soil and be and cook food,” he remarked, adding that he’d also like to “have my kids in the studio and have my mic in the open so we can hear nature while we’re recording.”

“It’s just a full Ye album,” he explained, adding that all of the albums he’d previously released weren’t on the same level as the music he’s currently working on. “Those five albums that I dropped earlier were like superhero rehabilitation. Now the alien Ye is fully back in mode, off of medication, working out, breaking as much fresh air as possible, thinking, doing, being himself.”

While it was not immediately clear why West deactivated his accounts, a source previously told PEOPLE the star is struggling as the eleventh anniversary of his mother Donda’s death approaches.

“If you remember, it was a year ago that this happened … almost exactly a year ago,” an insider close to the rapper told PEOPLE exclusively about his controversial actions in recent weeks. “It happens every fall as we get close to the anniversary of his mom’s death.”

Donda died in 2007 of heart disease while suffering “multiple post-operative factors” following a plastic surgery operation.

Kanye West is Eating Bugs Now

Welcome back to Kanye Week here at The Blemish. We weren’t planning on spending a week covering Kanye, but he keeps doing stupid shit, even for Kanye.

Today Kanye West is eating bugs. I’m not even making this up, Kanye West went on Instagram and said “Hey everybody, I’m gonna eat some bugs!”

I mean, I’m glad his dad is okay and hopefully he remains cancer-free. But if I had just beaten cancer and my multi-millionaire rapper son took me out to dinner and I sat down to a plate of bugs, I’d take my belt off and whoop his ass right in front of everyone in the restaurant. I don’t even believe in spanking children, but when an adult gives you a plate of bugs for dinner that’s the proper response.

Anyone want to take bets on what Kanye is going to do tomorrow? My guess is going to punch a baby. Just really haul off and pop a baby in the mouth. And then like, yell at the mother, going “What are you doing, you have to teach your baby how to take a punch! What kind of parent has a baby that cries this much after getting punched!” And then he’ll do an interview about how he’s the best at punching babies.

Lana Del Rey Is Very Pretend-Angry at Kanye West, Goes on Publicist-Approved Rant

Lana Del Rey is very unhappy that Kanye West doesn’t have the proper corporate-approved political views, and she made it very clear to him on Instagram that he needs to stop being a narcissist and start doing exactly what his publicist tells him to do in every circumstance. You know, the way she lives her life.

Trump becoming out president was a loss for the country but your support of him is a loss for the culture.

I can only assume you relate to his personality on some level. Delusions of Grandeur, extreme issuse with narcissism – none of which would be a talking point if we weren’t talking about the man leading our country.

If you think it’s alright to support someone who believes it’s OK to grab a woman by the pussy just because he’s famous-then you need an intervention as much as he does- something so many narcissists will never get becase there just isn’t enough help for the issue.

Message sent with concern that will never be addressed.

Something that will never cease to amaze me is the fact that people think it must take some kind of mental disorder to make a rich person support Donald Trump. There’s a sort of “Oh, of course the hoi polloi plebs like him, they’re just dumb and racist; you have money so I assumed you were better than that!” Kanye West and Lana Del Rey are both the kinds of empty-headed rich people who would have a Great Gatsby party because they didn’t realize everyone in that book is an asshole.

Of course rich people like Donald Trump, they’re supposed to. Kanye West isn’t doing anything weird or out of the ordinary, it’s weird that Lana Del Rey doesn’t like Trump. He’s giving her tax cuts and she doesn’t really care about any of the social issues she’s pretending to care about now because that’s what the popular stance for celebrities is.

How do I know Lana Del Rey is full of shit? Because Lana Del Rey considered voting for Trump.

“There’s a lot to talk about. I mean, you know, although I believe that personality shouldn’t get in the way of people’s true politics and what they are actually standing for, I need more information from all of my potential candidates.

“From all of them. Democrats, Republicans, I have a lot of conflicting feelings about all of them, to be politically correct.

“I need more time to figure out if what they’re saying can pass through and is actually feasible…Not just with Trump but with Democratic potential candidates.”

But once it became clear that supporting Trump meant bad PR, Lana became an outspoken Trump critic and cast a spell to stop him.  Because the kids like witches, right? Like Harry Potter and Charmed? So it’s cool to cast spells.

Kanye West Wants to Bring Donald Trump and Colin Kaepernick Together

Kanye West is an… interesting person. If you hadn’t realized that before, you probably figured it out when he went on Saturday Night Live dressed up like a giant bottle of Perrier.

By the way, doesn’t Kanye look like an adorable toddler about to go trick or treating in that costume? I know he’s a 40-year-old adult with his own children, but I just want to pinch his cheeks, he’s so cute. That is like the cat in a hoodie of rappers.

Kanye is also about as naive as a toddler. He told TMZ he wants to bring Donald Trump and Colin Kaepernick together for a “peace summit.” This would presumably be like the time President Obama had Professor Henry Louis Gates and the cop who arrested him for trying to open his own front door to the White House and it ended police racism.

Only it didn’t, things have only gotten worse since then, which is why Kaepernick was kneeling. Donald Trump is, let’s face it, either too stupid or too stubborn to believe that and considered it a grave insult to the military who no one mentioned at all besides him and some talking heads on Fox News.

This is never going to happen because, at the very least, Donald Trump needs to keep publicly hating Kaepernick to play to his base. Kaepernick doesn’t need to hate Donald Trump, but going around wearing a MAGA hat probably wouldn’t be the best thing for his personal brand. Look at what it’s done for Kanye’s.

It may seem odd that Kanye likes two such disparate people, but it actually makes perfect sense. Kanye is rich, and while Trump has used all sort of low-key and not-so low-key racist rhetoric as president, all he’s actually accomplished in two years is cutting taxes for the rich. Kanye is also black, and police brutality against unarmed black men doesn’t just affect the poor. Even famous black men, like Sterling Brown, are subject to being brutalized by the police for minor offenses.

Kanye West is what happens when you let a dumb rich person think he’s a genius free-thinker. Well, Kanye and Elon Musk. Kanye’s not a bad guy the way Elon Musk is, he’s just in way over his head and refuses to believe he doesn’t understand everything. Kind of like Donald Trump, actually.

Kim Kardashian Embarassed by Kanye’s ‘SNL’ Rant, but Will Always Support Him

Kanye West does so much stupid stuff that you’d think Kim Kardashian-West would be used to it by now. But no, Kanye always does something that much dumber and resets the bar for Kim.

This time it was his Donald Trump spiel at the end of last Saturday’s SNL performance, talking about his MAGA hat and so on.

During the show’s closing credits, Kanye spoke about wearing his hat and implying SNL producers told him not to wear it.

“You see they laughing at me. You heard ’em, they scream at me, they bully me. They bullied me backstage they said, “Don’t go out there with that hat on.” They bullied me backstage. They bullied me.

And then they say I’m in a sunken place. You want to see the sunken place? Okay, I’ma listen to y’all now.’

Or I’ma put my Superman cape on, which means you can’t tell me what to do.”

Cool, cool, cool. When can we just get some Kanye music?

A source told PEOPLE:

“Having all this backlash against Kanye is embarrassing for her and her family, but she will never say that…She supports Kanye through and through and truly does think her husband is entitled to his own opinion.”

That’s admirable, stand by your man. Ride or die. Can’t hate on that. She probably just holds her kids, cries quietly and tells them Daddy’s sick.

The Being Formally Known as Kayne West Is Back on His Bullshit

It’s been a big weekend for Kanye West’s particular brand of saying dumb shit that kind of sounds smart if you squint at it. He started by changing his name to “Ye” and missing the release date for his new album Yandhi that he had announced two days earlier.

A lot of people made the exact same joke about this, including Arrested Development star David Cross.

Seriously, everyone had one of these by Saturday evening. Then he dressed up like a bottle of Perrier to perform on Saturday Night Live.

At the end of the show, he gave a long-winded political speech about why his buddy Donald Trump is awesome, saying among other things “I’ma break it down to you right now: If someone inspires me and I connect with them, I don’t have to believe in all their policies.” Which explains a lot.

For most people, that would have been enough making yourself look like an asshole for one weekend. He could have kicked back and taken Sunday off to spend time with his wife and kids confident that he had done a good job of reminding everyone that he is, in fact, a twat.

But that’s not who Kanye West is. Kanye West has standards. Kanye West is a genius. And that’s why Kanye West accidentally said we should bring back slavery.

Okay, so Kanye has a bit of a point here, because the 13th Amendment does contain a provision that allows slavery to continue as long as only inmates are used as slaves. Hillary Clinton had some slaves to help around the governor’s mansion when she was first lady of Arkansas, for example.

The problem is that repealing the 13th Amendment wouldn’t end the use of prisoners as slave labor, it would just make slavery legal writ large. This is a thing Kanye doesn’t seem to realize, because even though he makes a good point about the unethical use of prison labor, he’s perhaps not the best messenger.

The lesson here is not to listen to celebrities talk about politics. You know, except for the ones who agree with me. So just Susan Sarandon and Cardi B.

Kim Kardashian Says Having Three Kids Left Her ‘Fully Neglecting’ Kanye West

Kim Kardashian West has her hands full with three kids — and the adjustment period hasn’t been easy on her husband Kanye West, either.

On Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the KardashiansKim, 37, opened up about how their growing brood has affected her relationship with West, 41. (They share daughters North, 5, Chicago, 8 months, and son Saint, 2½.)

“Having three kids, honestly, is crazy,” she said. “I remember it was really hard for North when Saint was born, so I kind of put everything into North to make her feel extra special. And now, with Chicago, I’m trying to work even to make sure North and Saint feel like they have enough time with me and they feel super loved and that no one is going to take their place.”

But with Kim channeling all her energy into the kids, West had begun feeling neglected, leading to some tension between Mom and Dad. In one scene, Kim revealed the couple had fought over — wait for it — her Instagram feed.

“He wanted to me post six Polaroids from that shoot that I posted — those nude pictures. But I posted one from the beach,” Kim recounted to sister Kourtney, 39. “He wanted them to all match up and be all from the motel. That’s what the f—ing fight was! I’m like, ‘I like the beach one.’ He’s like, ‘No, you don’t understand, I see the vision!’ ”

When Kim said she had to post about her fragrance line, West apparently shut it down, demanding she promote the other shoot instead.

“He’s like, ‘F— your fragrance for one day. You need six motels ones. Why’d you post the beach one? You’ve got to delete the beach one,’ ” she said. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t sit here and organize my Instagram with you. Who cares about this?’ He’s like, ‘I care, trust me.’ ”

“He’s always right in the end, but I’m just like, it’s my Instagram — you can’t tell me what to post,” she said. “That’s like, the one thing. No one will tell me what to post. I’m allowed to have an opinion.”

In another scene with Khloé Kardashian, Kim relayed a fight she’d had with West after she didn’t get him the right band-aid.

“He was like, ‘I’ve slaved around the world for you making clothes for you to make sure that you find the best outfit and you let me go out wearing a Jesus band-aid.’ He said I should have a skin-colored band-aid. So I’m running around looking for different colored band-aids when I’ve got three kids to look after? … Just because I didn’t give birth to this baby doesn’t mean that my plate is not totally full.”

“When you have three kids, it’s kind of a wild household,” she continued. “I’m kind of annoyed because I wish he would understand I’m exhausted. Like, go get your own band-aid.”

But it turned out that West was actually upset about something else: He felt that if Saint needed a particular band-aid, Kim would immediately get it.

“I was like, ‘Oh my God. Are you fighting with Saint? Is this a thing?’ ” she said.

Later, Kim admitted her fights with West were “really stupid and lately, we’ve been having a lot.”

“I think so many husbands feel neglected when you start having kids and then all of their attention gets taken away,” she surmised.

“Sometimes men still want to be treated as like, the first baby,” said Khloé. “I know Kim is so overwhelmed and I think sometimes it’s easy to get distracted, or you think because they’re adults they can take care of themselves, but your husband still wants you to take care of him. I’m sure with three kids you’re tired at the end of the day and you don’t make that a priority, but she really has to.”

Eventually, Kim decided to take her sister’s advice and surprise West with something special for Valentine’s Day: a heart-shaped box of band-aids and some lingerie.

“After my conversation with Khloé, the one thing that I realized is I make such a priority for all the kids, and I go above and beyond for them, but in that, I’m fully neglecting my husband,” she said. “So I just want to give Kanye the attention and love that he needs. … When you have so many kids, it’s important to still make your relationship a top priority.”

“Kanye is so thoughtful and even when he’s in crazy work mode he always takes the time to check in on me, see what’s going on,” she added. “And I think when I get in super busy mode, I need to just slow down and be a bit more thoughtful. I think I’ve definitely gotten better with that after this.”

All the while, Kim’s feud with Kourtney was raging on. This time, things kicked off after Kim accidentally included her sister on a family email chain about Scott Disick wanting to have a fourth kid with Kourtney.

“I was talking about Kourtney in the email as if she wasn’t on the email,” said Kim. “I thought it was like, a cute thing and I was just gossiping with the family, but it definitely looks like I was trying to talk about her without her knowing.”

Kourtney was having none of it and took it upon herself to cuss her sister out “like you’ve never seen” off-camera.

“I just feel like it never ends with my sister and I fighting. The topic of Scott and I having a fourth kid has never even been discussed so I don’t know where this is coming from. I’m in a relationship and sending an email behind my back is just so malicious,” said Kourtney, who was dating Younes Bendjima at the time.

“I don’t understand why Kim is involved in this at all,” she said. “I have a boyfriend, Scott has a girlfriend and I just don’t relate to the backstabbing, manipulating, lying. We were raised better, to know how important loyalty is, and that’s not how you treat your family members.”

“We’re supposed to protect each other from this kind of stuff,” she continued. “We don’t share each other’s personal business. I feel like Kim needs to realize that she shouldn’t be involved in the decisions that are made in my life.”

Kim eventually apologized and they moved on — but as it turns out, the whole thing was one giant miscommunication, because Disick had never actually said he wanted a fourth kid with Kourtney in the first place. But as Kim explained, this family is “always in each other’s business, and sometimes, the lines get really blurred.”

Chris Evans Slams Kanye West’s ‘Maddening’ Call for Abolition of Amendment That Outlawed Slavery

Chris Evans is criticizing Kanye West‘s call for the abolition of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, saying the rapper’s tweet is “maddening.”

It all started Sunday as West, 41, captioned a Twitter photo of himself wearing a pro-Donald Trump Make America Great Again hat on a private plane, “This represents good and America becoming whole again. We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs. We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love.”

A rep for West did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Ratified in 1865 after the Civil War, the 13th Amendment abolished slavery and involuntary servitude, but also “allowed for prisoners to be used as slave labor,” tweeted writer Yashar Ali, who tried to make sense of West’s message. “But he doesn’t articulate that in his tweet, leaving people confused and others delighted.”

Evans was not one of those delighted people. “There’s nothing more maddening than debating someone who doesn’t know history, doesn’t read books, and frames their myopia as virtue,” tweeted the Captain America actor, 37.

“The level of unapologetic conjecture I’ve encountered lately isn’t just frustrating, it’s retrogressive, unprecedented and absolutely terrifying,” Evans concluded.

It’s been a political weekend for West, whose lengthy off-air, pro-Trump rant at Saturday Night Live was met with some boos from the audience while making the show’s stars “uncomfortable,” a source told PEOPLE.

Responding to West’s support, Trump tweeted on Sunday, “Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) – no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told ‘no’), was great. He’s leading the charge!”

West began the controversial performance by singing, “I wanna cry right now. Black man in America, you’re supposed to keep what you feel inside right now. And the liberals bully you and tell you what you can and cannot wear, where you and they can’t not stare. And they look at me and say, ‘It’s not fair. How the hell did you get here?’ Well…”

Wearing a Make America Great Again hat, he then delivered an unexpected speech in front of SNL performers like Colin Jost and host Adam Driver. “Actually, blacks weren’t always Democrats,” he started. “It’s like a plan they did to take the fathers out the homes and promote welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s the Democratic plan.”

After receiving sparse claps, West continued, “And what this shows is we can’t be controlled by monolithic thought. You can’t always have when you have a black subject matter like Cosby that you have to have a black comedian talk about it.”

Motioning to SNL funnyman Michael Che, West said, “You know what I mean?”

West, who replaced Ariana Grande as the musical guest after she had to drop out, said, “It’s so many times that I talk to a white person about this, and they say, ‘How could you support Trump? He’s racist.’ Well if I was concerned about racism, I would have moved out of America a long time ago. We don’t just make our decisions off of racism. I’ma break it down to you right now: If someone inspires me and I connect with them, I don’t have to believe in all they policies.”

The Kardashian crew was out in full force to show support for the performance: West’s wife Kim Kardashian West, 37, and daughter North, 5, danced along to his performances during the show, and Kourtney Kardashian, 39, and Scott Disick, 35, were also in attendance for the spectacle.

Chris Rock recorded West’s speech on his Instagram Story and seemed to whisper at one point, “My God.”

“But this man is a builder,” West said of Trump. “And when I said I’m running in 2020, all my smart friends talked so much s— about me. And when I saw that man win, I said, ‘See, I told you. I could have been there.’”

In response, an audience member yelled, “F— Trump.” West added, “Now you got a situation where we need to have a dialogue and not a diatribe because if you want something to change, it’s not going to change by saying, ‘F— that person.’ Try love. Try love. Try love. Try love.”

Some audience members laughed. “You see they laughing at me. You heard ’em, they scream at me, they bully me,” said West. They bullied me backstage they said, ‘Don’t go out there with that hat on.’ They bullied me backstage. They bullied me. And then they say I’m in a sunken place. You want to see the sunken place? Okay, I’ma listen to y’all now.”

He removed his MAGA hat before putting it back on. “Or I’ma put my Superman cape on, which means you can’t tell me what to do,” he said. “Follow your heart and stop following your mind. That’s how we’re controlled. That how we’re programmed. If you want the world to move forward, try love.”

“No one bullied him about wearing the MAGA hat,” a source told PEOPLE. “He wore it in promos and all week before the show even aired and was asking everyone if they thought he should wear the hat, interns, anyone walking by who would listen.”

Kim Kardashian Shows Off North’s Orange Saturday Night Live Look: ‘Who Is the Bigger Diva?’

North West watched Saturday Night Live in style.

Kim Kardashian West, 37, shared 5-year-old North’s glam look before Kanye West, 41, performed on the show over the weekend.

On her Instagram story, Kardashian West showed North getting her hair brushed in a bright orange dress, bold matching eyeliner and white sneakers. “Oh, come on,” Kardashian West narrated. “Who is the bigger diva?”

“Let me see this look. Let me see this look,” Kardashian West called as North ran away.

North got the full glam squad treatment. “She’s coming for me and stealing my glam squad,” Kardashian West captioned a picture of North in the makeup chair.

In another video, as North’s hair was styled, Kardashian West asked, “Hey North, who’s the prettiest girl in the whole world?”

“Penelope,” North answered, giving a shout-out to her cousin Penelope Disick, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick‘s 6-year-old daughter.

“That’s a sweet answer,” Kardashian West replied.

In the studio, Kardashian West gave her fans a peek at North dancing along to the music. Kardashian West captured a cute father-daughter moment when West picked up North after exiting the stage, winning a big smile from North.

It was a full night for the Kardashian crew at Saturday Night Live, which Kardashian and Disick also attended.

At the end of the show, West, who replaced Ariana Grande as the musical guest after she had to drop out, gave a pro-Donald Trump speech that did not make it to air and received some boos from the audience.

“Actually, blacks weren’t always Democrats,” West started. “It’s like a plan they did to take the fathers out the homes and promote welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s the Democratic plan.”

Painting the Town Pink! Kim Kardashian Flaunts Her Curves During N.Y.C. Outing with Husband YE

Kim Kardashian West is supporting her man — and showing off her assets!

The KKW Beauty mogul, 37, and her husband YE (formerly known as Kanye West) were spotted together during a late night outing on Friday in New York City, just one day before the 41-year-old rapper’s scheduled performance on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live and release of his new album, Yandhi.

“Kim flew to NYC to support Kanye’s SNL appearance,” a source tells PEOPLE, adding that she also brought along all three of the couple’s children: North, 5, Saint, 2½, and Chicago, 8 months.

For their public outing, the reality star looked ready for a night out on the town, wearing a hot pink mini dress with a cutout highlighting her rock-hard abs. Adding in a bit of comfort to the look, she accessorized with a pair of Yeezy sneakers.

The rapper, who announced on Saturday that he had changed his name to YE, was dressed casually in a beige sweatshirt, white pants and sand-colored Yeezy footwear.

The insider told PEOPLE that the musician’s decision to go by a new moniker “must be something very recent.”

“It could be one of Kanye’s spontaneous ideas that he sometimes wakes up with in the morning. Usually, Kim will just roll her eyes at these ideas and ignore,” the insider adds.

On Saturday morning, the father of three announced on Twitter that he would only be known by the name of YE.

“The being formally known as Kanye West. I am YE,” he wrote.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The name has a lot of symbolism for the musician, who titled his last album YE.

In addition to being a shortened version of his full name, the moniker also holds a deeper, spiritual meaning.

I believe YE is the most commonly used word in the Bible,” he told Real 92.3’s Big Boy when promoting his music in June. “In the Bible it means ‘you.’ So I’m you, I’m us. It went from being Kanye, which means the only one, to being just YE — just being a reflection of our good, our bad, our confused, everything. I’m just more a reflection of who we are.”

The 21-time Grammy winner also appeared to foreshadow his choice earlier this week when he released a snippet of a song from his forthcoming album.

“I’m givin’ up my slave name / I’m givin’ up my slave name,” he sings in the tune, which he played for employees at Fader on Thursday.

During the song, he then went on to suggest that his children do the same. “Saint, you don’t really need a last name / North, you don’t really need a last name,” he said of his son and eldest daughter.

Kris Jenner Forgot to Dress Kanye West, Goes Out In MAGA Hat And Colin Kaepernick Sweatshirt

Kanye West is a very confused man.

In an effort to…I don’t know, be Kanye West? The rapper was caught wearing a Make America Great Again hat combined with a Colin Kaepernick sweatshirt.

In case you don’t know, Trump hates Kaepernick for being black. And Kaepernick hates Trump for being racist. The two sides will likely never get along, but maybe, just maybe, Kanye is trying to bring them together. Or…let’s explore other reasons Kanye would mix the two clothing items together:

-Kris Jenner forgot to pick out his clothes.
-Kanye is doing anything he can to make headlines in an effort to promote his new album. Yes, Kanye is already releasing another new album.
-Kanye is riding the fence. I was always taught that you should never straddle the fence, especially if you’re a boy.
-Kanye thought the outfit matched.
-We finally know the truth: Kanye can’t read. He actually has no clue what is on the red hat or white sweatshirt. For all he knows, both of them say “Kanye is the best” because that’s what Kim told him they say. In Kanye’s world, everything reads “Kanye is the best.” Don’t dismiss this theory.
-Kanye actually has no clue what’s going on with Colin Kaepernick. He thinks Kaepernick is not in the league because he’s a backup quarterback that no one wants and doesn’t realize no one wants the attention that comes with him. And that the majority of NFL owners are probably racist.
-Kanye is just supporting Nike
-Seriously, it’s definitely Kris Jenner forgot to pick out his clothes. That’s the most logical explanation.

Good luck to Kanye. I don’t know what for. He just seems like a guy who needs to be wished well right now.
