On April 4, 2019, a 4-day celebration punctuated the grand opening of KAOS dayclub and nightclub at the Palms. It was the Palms’ hope that its $960 million renovation which included its crown jewel club KAOS would bring back the debaucherous days of when it first opened 18 years ago. It had already laid the groundwork by winning a bidding war with Wynn for a residency by one of the world’s top DJs, Marshmello. The price tag for that 2 year contract: a painful $60 million. This was the largest contract for a DJ in history and many wondered how the Palms could make a profit paying that much money. KAOS had also secured a residency with Skrillex and would feature other popular DJs like Kaskade and Deadmau5 as well as a few other non-edm acts here and there.
However, out of the blue in late September, people noticed that Marshmello disappeared from the club’s calendar. Shortly after, news came out that the Palms had negotiated Marshmello’s departure after he, who was making $600,00 per weekend, had fulfilled only half his dates. In order to kill that contract, the Palms had to pay Marshmello somewhere over $20 million. News of Skrillex and others pulling out followed as well. Their departures were the beginning of the end even if the Palms didn’t want to admit it.
After that clusterfuck of news, the club went dark while it continued with plans to erect their Kaos Dome, a structure that would cover the club and allow people to party late in the year. On October 31, KAOS re-opened with a Cardi B “Demon Dome” Halloween party. A few days later on November 5, KAOS announced it would be closing indefinitely.
According to reports, Red Rocks Resorts, owner of the Palms hotel and Kaos, reported a $26.8 million loss, largely due to one-time charges relating to termination of certain artist performance agreements. A source told Rolling Stone that the details surrounding Marshmello’s contract cancellation was the result of an internal investigation into executive management and an inability to cover both employee costs and artist costs. Basically, any money the club made was going into paying Marshmello.
What’s interesting is that “internal investigation” piece. A week before KAOS publicly ended its contract with Marshmello, Wynn Nightlife exec Alex Cordova had been kicked out. Wynn, as you remember, was the one involved in the bidding war for Marshmello.
Rumor out of Wynn is Alex Cordova, Executive V.P. of Nightlife, escorted off resort property last night by security. That rarely ends well.

A week after the mass DJ exodus, the GM of Palms, Jon Gray, was also fired. Well, he “resigned” but only because he’s friends with the the owners, the Fertitias. Most likely in connection with signing the worst contract in history. The timing was a little suspicious.
But back to Cordova. The guy who seems to be in the deepest of shit. The rumor floating around is Cordova was paid $3 million to not match the Palms’ $60 million bid for Marshmello. He had basically engaged in a fake bidding war with KAOS with the intent not to outbid them. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was getting paid that $3 million on top of a little something from the other side for driving up the price.
No fewer than six sources pass along unconfirmed rumor Alex Cordova's take for not meeting Palms' $60m offer for Marshmello was $3 million. Wynn reportedly contemplating litigation.

Oh boy, Eminem is in trouble. An audio leak of unused lyrics from a 2009 session had Slim saying “Of course I side with Chris Brown, I’d beat a bitch down too.” Which is not ideal. But I think we need to put some thought into what this means before we get our pitchforks.
First of all, the audio clip, which surfaced on Reddit, is from ten years ago. People change a lot in 10 years. Ten years ago Marvel movies were still good, Donald Trump was a reality TV star and whoever Leonard DiCaprio is dating was learning her times tables (and I’m guessing she never grasped them). At the time, Eminem was really pushing a misogynist image that he appears to have moved on from.
Secondly, and this is still related, these were lyrics in a song and not something he said in an interview or expressed as a viewpoint he had. Brian Wilson doesn’t really want to go to Kokomo, which is not even a real place anyway and Don Henley unfortunately didn’t get trapped for eternity in a haunted hotel.
In 2013, The Onion ran a story with the headline “Eminem Terrified As Daughter Begins Dating Man Raised On His Music.” The comedy in this is, of course, that Eminem doesn’t actually believe the terrible things he says in his music. And this is far from the worst thing he’s ever said in a song.
But also, he didn’t really say it in a song. He considered saying it in a song. They lyric was obviously cut from the final version of the song, ‘Things Get Worse’ when it eventually released. Now, we don’t know exactly why it was cut, but I don’t think it’s fair to assume Eminem stands behind this lyric when he never put it in the final version of the song; obviously, for whatever reason, he felt it was inappropriate.
Now, some people were angry over the deleted lyric, like supermodel Emily Rattata, who is in the top percentage of Emilys and had this to say on Twitter.
Bye Eminem you’re an actual joke https://t.co/MgsQM4NN5U
— Emily Ratajkowski (@emrata) November 6, 2019
Like I said, I don’t think it’s fair. He’s essentially playing a character, it was 10 years ago and he ended up cutting the lyric, making it more of a thought he had than a thing he said.
I understand why people would be mad about it, Chris Brown is a huge piece of shit and people get unreasonably angry about this sort of thing now, but I think it’s safe to say Eminem doesn’t actually think beating the shit out of your girlfriend is a good thing.

Kanye West has been a Christian for about a week or so, and like anyone with a new hobby he has talked about it until everyone around him is just absolutely sick of hearing about it. Seriously, think about how you would look at me if I spent the rest of this article talking about Magic: The Gathering is in real trouble right now because Oko, Thief of Crowns is just steamrolling over Standard and it really needs to banned on the 18th because no one wants to play another year and half of Magic: The Elkening. That’s how we should all feel every time Kanye West says the word Jesus.
Let’s look at what Kanye has done since his come to Jesus moment. He showed up at Coachella and lead a prayer service, which included him selling $200 Kanye West Approved Church Sweatpants. So he’s already mastered the whole Righteous Gemstones rip everyone off televangelist mega church bullshit thing in his first day, which is record timing.
Then he made his new album all Jesusey and invited Kenny G to collaborate with him because why wouldn’t he, it’s not like an incredibly successful comedian (among NPR listeners, anyway) used Kenny G as shorthand for being terrible at music.
By the way, Jesus is King got delayed more times than the second coming. Seriously, that guy was supposed to be here by now. I’ve got shit to do, if you make plans the least you can do is keep them.
But now that Kanye has been a Christian for all of six months, he’s starting to be a real misogynist asshole about it, which is honestly unsurprising. Converts to religion, especially recent converts, tend to be absolutely insufferable about it compared to people who are raised in a religion, to the extent that religious terrorists tend to be converts.
Just for starters, Kanye, who produced the Pornhub awards last year, basically called his wife a whore for looking sexy, the thing about her that he couldn’t stop talking about when they started dating, because it reflects poorly on him as a Christian.
Kanye wasn’t done, though, as he then went in on everyone’s favorite thing, porn. Kanye, man, leave porn alone, it never did anything to anyone. In fact, Psychology Today says studies show that watching porn makes you less sexist, less homophobic and less religious, all of which are great things to be.
He also reportedly asked the crew working with him Jesus is King not to have premarital sex, something that is none of Kanye West’s fucking business.
Kanye has always been eccentric, by which I mean he’s an asshole. But he used to be a lovable asshole when he was interrupting Taylor Swift or pointing out how George Bush doesn’t care about black people. Taylor Swift and George Bush both kind of suck. But porn and premarital sex? Well, you may as well just attack mom and apple pie. We miss the old Kanye. You’ve gone through these phases of various types of stupidity before, please stop this one before you end up making an album with some Christian Rock band with a ridiculous name like Switchfoot or Jars of Clay or Insane Clown Posse.

Vince Neil’s gluttony stands between Motley Crue doing nothing and Motley Crue making $150 million on a national tour. Live Nation supposedly has offered the band the tour on the condition that Vince Neil drops 40 pounds and also goes into rehab.
This is what Neil looks like now.
Neil, on the other hand, has pointed his chubby finger at bandmate Tommy Lee and says he’s the one who needs rehab more.
“Tommy is furious!” said a source close to the 57-year-old ex of Pam AndersonOpens in New Window and Heather LocklearOpens in New Window. “He won’t do it! He doesn’t think he has a drinking problem — but everybody else does!” the insider confessed.
Even though all the reviews hated Motley Crue’s biopic, The Dirt, shown on Netflix, it’s got a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes. Non-critics loved it and it boosted streams of their music and record sales.
Doubtful another huge payday comes their way, so they better grab this chance now. Someone get Vince Neil on Weight Watchers so we can enjoy this band while they’re still alive.

Remember when Kanye West wasn’t an idiot? Yeah, neither do I, but remember when he was at least right when he would risk his career on being Kanye? Kanye basically hasn’t been right about anything since he said George W Bush doesn’t care about black people, but he’s still out there, in the world, being Kanye, saying whatever ridiculous thing crosses his mind.
Today that means a few things, starting with him thinking God wants him to have nearly $70 million. Here’s what Kanye said on Carpool Karaoke, via Consequence of Sound.
“God is using me to show off,” Kanye exclaimed. “Last year I made $115 million and still ended up $35 million in debt. This year I looked up and I just got $68 million returned to me on my tax returns.”
“People need to hear [from] someone that has been put into debt by the system, talk about these type of numbers now that they’re in service to Christ.”
Yeah, he actually said that, and it’s not even the dumbest thing he said in the past day. Now, I don’t believe in God, but you might, and if you do, here’s what he said about Kanye West getting a $68 million tax rebate In Matthew 19:23-24
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
How neat is it that they numbered every sentence in the Bible so you can just go right to things like that?
But remember when I said Kanye thinking God have him $68 million for being a good boy wasn’t even the dumbest thing he said today? Here’s the dumbest thing Kanye said today, as reported by Page Six.
“We’re [black Americans] brainwashed out here, bro. Come on, man. This is a free man talking. Democrats had us voting [for] Democrats with food stamps for years,” Yeezy said when asked about those who think he has turned his back on the black community.
“What are you talking about? Guns in the ’80s, taking the fathers out the home, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort our children … Thou shall not kill,” he continued.
Kanye West doesn’t care about black people.
These are just the same neoconservative “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” talking points Republicans have been shitting out since William F. Buckley got embarrassed on national TV by Gore Vidal. Kanye West risked his career to challenge George W Bush after Hurricane Katrina and now he’s out there just parroting George W Bush’s talking points.
At the end of the day, Kanye loves attention more than anything, including his wife and children. So when the whole country was kissing George Bush’s ass Kanye came out swinging for him. Now that Trump is unpopular and the dominant culture leans left, Kanye is a Christian Trump supporter who slut-shames his wife on her TV show. Because negative attention is still attention.

Maybe the most baller legal move ever is having to prove you got a concussion during a threesome in court. This is the predicament rapper Dave East found himself in during his trial for battery.
You see, around a month ago, Mr. East was having a threesome, as you do, when a fight broke out. Which is wild. I have never had sex that turned into a physical altercation. I have had really competitive sex where we tried to outdo each other but that just lead to a sore back and jaw the next day. My man Dave ended up with a concussion.
According to TMZ, that concussion was the key to getting his battery charges for his orgy brawl dismissed.
Everything about this makes me smile. Just to recap: East was having a threesome when a melee broke out, and proving someone gave him a concussion moments after he was inside of her helped him avoid legal penalties. That is a story you tell for the rest of your life.
As we reported … Dave told cops one of the ladies started hurling champagne bottles at him from across the room, and he claimed two made contact. Richman said Dave went for a CAT scan after the incident … and apparently the results showed he sustained a concussion.
Sounds rough. But the CTE risk isn’t as bad as playing in the NFL and getting your dick sucked by two women is less likely to cause a lifelong drug addiction to boot.

Anyone who has laid eyes on the trailers for Cats can clearly see that this thing is an abomination, an effrontery to civilized society, a blight upon mankind. Anyone except the people involved with the making of the film, that is, as all they can do is fawn over each other and talk about how groundbreaking this absolute monstrosity is, so shoved up their own asses they can’t see that they’ve created something that goes against all laws of nature.
This latest featurette is a behind-the-scenes look at how Taylor Swift and Andrew Lloyd Webber teamed up to write a brand new song—for a musical, I might add, that already has nearly two dozen songs in it. They’re so enamored with one another’s process that they didn’t stop to think that the last god damned thing that Cats needed was a new song, one not based on the poetry of T.S. Eliot, I might also add.
Anyway, there’s no doubt this thing will make all the money in the world when it’s released in December. Every putrid, filthy, rotting, stinking mess of a film that gets released at Christmas time ends up making $200 million or more, so there’s no reason to expect this will be any different. Cats neuters its way into theaters on December 20.
So you can stop with the jokes now.

Here’s a fun fact about freedom of speech in the United States: you have way more of it than most people realize. Like a common refrain we hear these days is “hate speech isn’t free speech” but hate speech is absolutely protected by the first amendment. Even threats have to reach a very specific threshold to be illegal, simply saying “I’ll kill you you asshole!” generally isn’t sufficient to rise to the letter of a crime.
Some people who should know this are the Secret Service, who protect the president. Like, for example, if you were to put on a production of Julius Caesar at Shakespeare in the Park where Caesar looks like the President, that’s protected speech.
And if you were a famous rapper who wrote songs about killing people and sampling Dido who wrote a song about killing Ivanka Trump, that would also clearly be protected speech. But that doesn’t mean the Secret Service didn’t take time out their busy schedule to harass Eminem over a song anyway.
Eminem has claimed for years that the Secret Service had payed him a visit, but now there’s actual proof of it. Buzzfeed filed a Freedom of Information Act and it turns out that yes, that actually happened.
This week, the agency turned over 40 pages of documents that prove they did in fact interview the rapper. It turns out their interest in speaking with him was based on “threatening lyrics” from his rap “Framed” that appeared on Revival. The Secret Service characterized Eminem as “exhibiting inappropriate behavior” and noted that he, via the rap, “threatens protectee.”
I don’t think anything that a rapper says on an album “threatens” anyone. If the Secret Service wants to address the real threats to Donald Trump’s life, they need to start bringing Quarter Pounders in for questioning.

It’s hard to tell your fans they’re idiots when you love them so much. Lady Gaga fell off a stage and almost broke her back when an overzealous fan picked her up and started humping her on stage.
— Complex (@Complex) October 18, 2019
I don’t care if these are my little “monsters” or whatever she calls her fans. If you almost end my career, you’re gonna hear about it. No one’s paying to see Lady Gaga perform in a wheelchair.
Lady Gaga supposedly wasn’t hurt, so she was able to bring her fan onstage and assure him that she didn’t hold anything against him and neither should any of her fans.
She told her fan, “You promise me you’re not gonna be sad about that, right?” That idiot fan said “I promise” then put his head on her shoulder why Gaga closed her eyes and held her hands in prayer. Probably silently banishing him to a lifetime of Katy Perry concerts.

One of these days I’m going to get accused of plagiarizing my own tweets because I tweet a lot of the jokes I make in these articles while I’m writing, so they’re out there way before the articles get published.
What happened to Lizzo was a little different because the line “I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100% that bitch” came from a tweet from someone else, but that’s small potatoes compared to the accusation that the entire song was written with two artists who didn’t get credit or money for it, which is the allegation Justin Raisen made on Instagram.
On April 11th, 2017, we wrote a song called “Healthy” w/ Lizzo, Jesse St John, and Yves Rothman at our studio. “I just took a DNA test turns out I’m 100% that bitch” was taken from “Healthy” and used in “Truth Hurts”. We were never contacted about being credited for the use of the parts of “Healthy” (melody, lyrics, and chords) that appear in “Truth Hurts”. After reaching out to Ricky Reed and Lizzo’s team about fixing it, we put the song in dispute in 2017 when it came out. We’ve tried to sort this out quietly for the last two years, only asking for 5% each but were shutdown every time.
Coming forward publicly to family, friends, artists, and colleagues seems to be the only way at this point in relieving some of our emotional distress caused by this. The last thing we want to do is throw any negativity toward Lizzo’s momentum and movement as a cultural figure. If we believe in what she’s preaching, believing in ourselves & our own voices is something we thought she’d understand.
Shout out to the singer Mina Lioness ( @minalioness ) for tweeting “I just did a DNA test turns out I’m 100% that bitch”. A meme of that came up in our writing session & inspired the lyric and melody we wrote together. If Ricky and Lizzo’s team decide to settle this dispute with us, we would like to share some of the proceeds with Mina for her influence on Healthy.
The clip below shows a video & photos from the day we wrote “Healthy” along with the comparisons between the two works.
All the Love,
Justin & Jeremiah Raisen
If we’re being 100% honest here, we don’t even know if Lizzo is going to be the next Cardi B or just the next Los Del Rio. Remember them? Of course you don’t. But they never attacked an UberEats driver they had given the wrong address to.

China has had something of a scorched earth policy when it comes to any sort of criticism of their totalitarian regime and talking about things like how they’re committing genocide against the Uighurs and brutally cracking down on pro-democracy protestors in Hong Kong.
Like, I’m probably going to get Red Dawned tomorrow for showing you this video of a protester taking down a Chinese police officer with a flying kick but it’s so awesome.

That was so sweet.
China’s crushing of dissent is so thorough and borderline passive-aggressive that they’ve banned German DJ Zedd from the country for liking a South Park tweet.
I just got permanently banned from China because I liked a @SouthPark tweet.
— Zedd (@Zedd) October 10, 2019
I took a look through Zedd’s likes (and his dislikes, which was just “teenagers with attitude”) and it turns out he only liked one South Park tweet recently, this one.
— South Park (@SouthPark) October 9, 2019
That’s completely unrelated to China.
Naturally, I thought this was a joke. Honestly, it would be pretty funny, like a South Park tweet not about China and then tweet this. But it’s fucking real, CNBC confirmed he wasn’t joking about it.
“This is true, yes, but we don’t have anymore info to give you at this time,” Adam Guest, senior entertainment publicist at U.K.-based SATELLITE414 agency, told CNBC. It’s unclear at the moment whether this means that Zedd has a travel ban to China. As of Saturday, his music was still available on Chinese music streaming site QQ Music.
South Park had been the only high-profile endeavors to actually stand up to China while brands like Marvel have been meticulously self-censoring to appease China, but it seems they have actually influenced the conversation because the public’s attitude has started to change.
Blizzard Entertainment had penalized a Hearthstone player over ten thousand dollars and banned him from competition for a year, but it scaled back to no monetary penalty and a six-month ban in the face of public outrage that the move failed to quell. They also issued a statement saying the penalty wasn’t about the content of the message, and that no political speech would be tolerated regardless of content.
Moving forward, we will continue to apply tournament rules to ensure our official broadcasts remain focused on the game and are not a platform for divisive social or political views.
Everyone in the world knows that this is bullshit. But it does show that just shrugging, doing what makes China happy and saying “that’s just how it is now” isn’t going to fly anymore.
The NBA also sought to distance itself from China, with commissioner Adam Silver issuing a statement reiterating the league’s commitment to free speech.
This may be premature, but there’s hope that companies in the western world aren’t just going to openly prostrate themselves on the altar of Chinese money anymore.
Don’t watch this at work unless you have a chill office.
Kesha has been fighting with producer Dr. Luke in court for years. Seriously, our former colleague Ally Sabatina wrote “Let’s hope today is the beginning of the end of Kesha’s horrendous year and a half legal battle,” in February 2016. And oh boy was it not.
And today, nearly four years later, Kesha had a pretty big legal setback, as reported by E!.
According to court documents obtained by E! News, her countersuit against Dr. Luke was denied on the court’s assertion that the appeal was “palpably insufficient and devoid of merit.” Furthermore, the court ruled the singer’s counterclaims were partly “speculative, contradicted by her own allegations that she had continued performing under the agreements.”
Basically what happened here is that she sued Dr. Luke for sexual assault, he countersued her defamation and while she dropped her case against him, he didn’t drop his case against her.
And she’s losing the legal battle. This is the third countersuit she’s had thrown out. Dr. Luke seems pretty dead-set on destroying her. And I just don’t think this is going to end well for her. Maybe Katy Perry is right here and Kesha is full of it, or maybe Dr. Luke is the monster Kesha makes him out to be, but either way it looks like everything is going his way.

I almost feel bad for Aaron Carter. I say almost because he dated Hilary Duff so fuck that guy, he doesn’t need our pity. But he has been having a pretty rough go of it lately.
Carter went off the deep end, ending up the subject of blind gossip items and making wild allegations against his family members. He also got a giant tattoo on his face, and had to be talked out of doing something stupid by the guy who did said face tattoo.
Carter recently seemed to come to his senses and made a conciliatory gesture to his family on social media, but quickly came to his lack of senses and deleted it.
The troubled singer, 31, tweeted and deleted his desire to make right with brother Nick Carter, writing, “I’ve been very hurt by the fact that my big brother has not made an effort to be part of my life for a long time. So therefore, I lashed out and said some hurtful things I did not mean to say.”
“I love my brother,” he added. “I love my family, and all I want is peace and love for everybody.”
It’s a nice sentiment that he apparently decided he doesn’t stand by. Still hasn’t deleted that Instagram post calling his brother a rapist, though.

Call this one of the ultimate collectible for music lovers. Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s Seattle house is up for sale. Yes, THAT house. The one where Cobain killed himself.
For a cool $7.5 million, you get a piece of music history. Also, four bedrooms, four bathrooms and a wine cellar! I like my death chilled.
You’ll be one owner removed from Love and Cobain. Love sold the house in 1997, about three years after Cobain’s suicide. If you’re into real estate, Love sold it at $2.895 million in 1997. Now, it’s worth $5 million more. Home prices are crazy.
Check out the home’s listing. Not a bad looking house.
For all those people into road trips, map the house’s address, 171 Lake Washington Blvd E, Seattle, Washington 98122 USA, drive over and you can take photos outside. There’s a huge wall of shrubs, so you don’t get to see that much of Cobain’s house.
It has gorgeous lake views though, so there’s that.
It was going to be hard for Tekashi 6ix9ine to go into witness protection considering, you know, the face tattoos. Imagine the following scenario.
”Hey, does that guy in hardware look familiar to you?”
”Who, old Jim?”
”Yeah. Don’t you think he looks like that rapper?”
”No, I can’t say he does. That’s just Jim 6ix9ine from Union Gap, Washington.”
It just wasn’t going to work out for him, which is something he probably should have thought of before he snitched on a bunch of members of a violent gang.
Now that he’s done snitching, though, 6ix9ine has decided that he’s not going into witness protection because he wants to stay famous. Via TMZ:
Did you ever see the episode of The Sopranos where Tony drops Meadow off at college? He sees a snitch in witness relocation, tracks him down and kills him. Think of how much easier it would have been for Tony to kill that guy if he had a website that said exactly where he was going to be and was performing in front of a large crowd of loud people.
I’m not saying 6ix9ine is definitely going to get murdered, but I will say he was probably going to get murdered either way so he might as well die rich.

I know you think your kid is extra cute and extra special and way better than everyone else’s kid, but I regret to inform you that no one gives a shit. I know, all your friends like all your Instagram posts about how you’re raising an indigo child or whatever, but they don’t actually care.
Even if you’re Beyoncé, no one gives a shit about your kid, they’re just a kid. Which is why I think I sprained something rolling my eyes when Beyoncé called her 7-year-old daughter Blue Ivy a “cultural icon” during her attempt to trademark the tot’s name despite resistance from a wedding planning business called Blue Ivy.
The Emmy-nominee went on to call her 7-year-old daughter a “cultural icon” while taking a few shots at Morales’ company, calling it a “small business, with just three regional offices and a handful of employees.” She also mentioned its “weak online presence and poorly subscribed social media accounts.”
Give me a fucking break here. Her argument here is even though Wendy Morales is already the Blue Ivy mark for her business, Beyoncé should get it because she’s more famous. I kind of understand why her fans are the way they are now.
On top of that, the trademark office has previously denied an application for a trademark on Blue Ivy’s name when she was a baby. Thanks probably why Beyoncé is trying to claim a 7-year-old is a cultural icon.
Blue Ivy isn’t even famous. Her parents are famous. She has accomplished nothing, because she’s seven. No seven-year-old has accomplished anything ever. The world’s most successful seven-year-old still just learned to wipe their own ass and can’t do long division. They absolutely cannot be an icon.

Kanye West has always been a bit of a weirdo, but I always liked the way he loved Kanye West more than anyone else has ever loved anything else. You know, that and when he said George W Bush doesn’t care about black people. That was awesome, it was his dopest beat.
But now he’s gotten all Jesusey and it’s weird. For starters, he’s been leading church services. I thought that he was inviting people to worship him, but it’s kind of weird that it’s about worshiping Him.
Then he named his new album Jesus is King.
Kanye confirms his ninth album “Jesus is King” will drop September 27th. pic.twitter.com/nFYzuVUlAH

He looks like a little kid wearing his dad’s shirt on the album cover, too.
Kanye named his child Psalm West. This is such a dumb name even Kendall Jenner couldn’t hold her tongue about it, telling Jimmy Fallon “She would not let me leave the house until we figured out a name, and then ended up going with a name that I didn’t even — like, that I didn’t care for as much.” That’s about the mildest criticism you can give on the name of a baby who going to grow up wishing his parents had named him North West instead.
And now Kanye is collaborating with Kenny G because Christian music is invariably crap. Kenny G told Rolling Stone “I can’t really say much else because he doesn’t really want anyone to talk about music before he releases it. Just suffice to say that we’re collaborating on some things, and nobody knows what’s going to happen.”
I mean why not at this point? Is Kenny G going to make a song called ‘Baptized’ on an album called Jesus is Lord any worse? Is anyone going to be sitting around saying “Man, ‘God Is’ was a sick beat until Kenny G came in, that just ruined it.”
Of course not. If anything, maybe he’ll Kenny G all over the place and drown out Kanye’s whole Jars of Clay schtick.
People will do some insane things for clout. Like pretend to marry Jake Paul. Like, even if it isn’t real, why would someone do that to themselves? Especially someone so hot. She could fake marry someone way better.
Chance the Rapper thinks that Cardi B’s feud with Nicki Minaj was faked for clout, too; except he doesn’t think that they faked it, or were even aware it was being faked.
Complex reported on what Chance said about the feud.
“A lot of that stuff is produced,” he said at the 1:12:40 mark of the interview. “We live in… A lot of everything is curated before we get to see it. Like, all the information, the way that they phrase it to us… The way they put people against. It’s made for you to like, accept it a certain way, so a lot of people had to choose a side. I don’t want to speak for them at all, but I feel like to a certain extent they got pushed into that too, and I don’t think that all of that was a hundred percent their feelings.”

What he’s essentially saying is that they didn’t know they were being set up to fight by their managers or producers or someone who thought it would bring them more attention.
It makes sense, and it kind of worked. I talk about it a lot and I’m not even all that interested in their music. Well, I do think Cardi is super hot and has good politics, but I don’t really listen to her music, so this has got their names out there.
but it will be interesting to think that when Cardi finally hauls off and plasters Nicki, it will be because of a publicity stunt she wasn’t aware of.
