anye West doesn’t bite his tongue for no one nor is he afraid to push the envelope creatively either. Tonight Kanye proved why he is one of the most influential figures of this generation as he sold out The Forum in Los Angeles to premiere his new visual for “Famous”.
It was a star-studded event of course, notables on hand include his wife Kim Kardashian West, mother-in-law Kris Jenner, Scott Disick, Rick Rubin, The Game, 2 Chainz, Desiigner, French Montana, Travis Scott and the recently reunited couple Tyga and Kylie Jenner.
The video was supposed to premiere at 7pm PT exactly but Ye postponed it 30 minutes so folks could get their “limited” “Famous” merchandise.
No one knew what to expect from Kanye when it came to this visual. The song is already surrounded in controversy thanks to its very suggestive Taylor Swift lyric. As the countdown hit 0 and the video played even if you wasn’t there in the forum, you probably was looking at your Tidal steam like:
The video plays like a sex tape recorded on VHS and it’s participants include Taylor Swift, George Bush, Donald Trump, Ray J, Amber Rose, Bill Cosby, Anna Wintour, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Caitlyn Jenner, Kim Kardashian and Kanye himself. You most definitely have to see it to believe it, Kanye really went there.
Ummmmmmm we don’t really know what to say about this. The final scene pictured about is supposed to draw inspiration from the famous Vincent Desiderio painting called “Sleep”.
Riiiight. No one knows what’s going on in that beautiful mind of Kanye West but as of right now we are officially on timeline watch. All eyes are currently glued to each and every one of the unwilling (except for Kim) participants social media accounts. We cannot wait to see the fallout from this and chances are very likely someone is getting sued.
You better believe Trump and Taylor Swift’s lawyers are typing up those cease and desist letters and getting those court documents ready like:
Until then hit the gallery below and enjoy the hilarious reaction from social media after Kanye #BrokeTheInternet with his “Famous” visual.
BET Networks announced today the premiere date of its new original one-hour docu-series #THEWESTBROOKS. The WestBrooks, also known as “The First Family of Social Media”, features five beautiful, yet entirely unique sisters: India, Crystal, Bree, Morgan and Brooke, who have taken the social media world by storm with more than two million followers checking their every move. The show will go behind the tweets and posts to follow the insta-famous family as they work to establish the “WestBrooks Brand,” while doing all that they can to keep their tight-knit family intact in the midst of newfound fame and celebrity.
#THEWESTBROOKS premieres Wednesday, October 14 at 10 PM ET/PT.
About the #THEWESTBROOKS ladies:
India (@indialove) is the pampered princess of the family. Most known for her rumored associations with multiple Hip Hop A-listers, this burgeoning model/fashionista stays busy juggling business meetings with posting endless selfies to her active social media accounts.
Crystal (@westbrooks.crystal) is the free-spirited, peace-loving, hippy of the family. A college finance major by day, Crystal has aspirations of conquering the modeling and acting worlds with her signature smile.

Go behind the scenes of their promo photo shoot below:
The SFPL does it again, stumbling across a new visual that is sure to grab your attention. Artist/Producer J-EyE shows off his new single “My Religion,” which is bound to have you think twice about your insecurities. Check out more after the jump…
In the issue, written by Complex’s own Lauren Nostro, Khlo-Khlo talks about her sister Kylie Jenner, Amber Rose, Tyga, Kanye West, Caitlyn Jenner, Scott Disick, French Montana and so much more.
The most controversial was your spat with Amber Rose. Do you think you slut-shamed her?
I just feel like it was unnecessary for her to say anything, and I used her own quote back. It was from her talking about when she became a stripper so I’m like, “How are you judging and saying Kylie should have a curfew?” What I thought was crazy was she was telling my sister to act a certain way or have a curfew, but [she wasn’t] doing the same. So just don’t comment. How was I slut-shaming by saying don’t throw stones at glass houses? There was no slut-shaming. I am not one to slut-shame, I have done slutty behavior myself.
You’re maternal with your younger sisters and you’ve gone to bat for Kylie a lot recently. First off, what’s going on with the lips?
Sometimes things bother her. When it comes to her lips, I knew it was one of her biggest insecurities. She used to always take pictures covering her mouth. I didn’t even know when she first did her lips. It wasn’t noticeable, then it started getting bigger and bigger. I guess that was something she just wanted. I always wanted a boob job and I wear a padded bra all the time.
Do you feel that the criticisms of Kylie and Tyga’s relationship are fair?
I think at 16 I was probably fucking someone that was in their 20s, for sure. I wouldn’t say I was even dating, probably just sleeping with them. But again Kylie is not a normal 17-year-old. You’re not gonna say, “Hey, so what are you doing this weekend?” and have her say, “Having a slumber party at my girlfriend’s,” or “Going to prom.” That’s not what Kylie does. Kylie is taking business meetings and bought her first house, or she’s going on a private plane with Karl Lagerfeld to take a meeting. That’s not even what people do in their 30s. It’s a rare circumstance, so let’s treat this as a special case.
The About Bruce specials just aired. What’s been the reaction?
That was the only show I had full-blown anxiety for. I don’t know if I’ve used appropriate terminology; I don’t know if I’m offending anybody. I’m learning as we’re filming, so even my reaction is so aggressive and so protective. I’m so…I’m angry, I’m sad, I’m confused. You try going through that in real time, and see what your reaction is. You don’t know. You can’t control it.
During the specials, you took the announcement of his transition the hardest, but it seemed to be because you felt out of the loop.
None of us ever knew about his transition, and that’s what got confusing on the special. He spoke to us about six months prior and said that he’s always dressed up in women’s clothing. We used to find them. I just never told my mom because…we all didn’t know. There were always rumors that he was a crossdresser back in the ’80s. That was a different time; we didn’t know if it was some Studio 54 thing. But he never said he was transitioning. In his soul, I think he knew. He’s been the most amazing parent to any of us. When my dad was alive, we would pray for [Bruce] and say how great it is to have a stepdad who loves us like we’re his own kids. [Bruce and I] are the closest out of the Kardashian kids. I think what hurt me the most was that we as a family wanted to be a part of his transitioning. I could imagine that it’s so lonely. Don’t you want people to support you and be there with you? But then I don’t know if that’s a selfish request.
What’s your relationship like with French Montana now?
We haven’t dated in a few months. I’m friends with him. I talked to him recently because his best friend was just murdered. He’s a great guy, super funny, a sweetheart.
Would you consider him a rebound?
I don’t know if I believe in rebounds, unless you just sleep with someone for a night or two. They’re just people you can laugh and have a good time with. My life is so serious, or always moving so fast, it’s fun to have that outlet to enjoy and let your hair down and not worry about things.
And you guys seem to be cool even if you’re not together.
When you fuck someone, why would you not…. Like, if someone has seen my vagina, I think it’s OK that I say hi and give him a hug hello.
Tai Beauchamp has been consistently covering your television morning & evening screens for sometime now. From Beauty Editor, to being on talk show segments via GMA and Wendy Williams [just to name a few] in the name of Tech, Beauty, Style, Accessories — to now hosting her very own TLC show Dare To Wear; Tai is officially the guru of All Things Fly!
Recently, T-Bizzle stopped by SFPL TV to chat a bit about her new show, the definition of style, fashion myths, her Caitlyn Jenner fashion prediction at The Espy‘s and more!
Shawn Prez, CEO of Power Moves Inc, the nation’s premier street marketer, and long-time friend, known as P-Diddy’s “Ambassador to the Streets” said today that Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce) should be featured on a Wheaties box again. Do you agree?
Shawn Prez also said:
“While our world is changing and it’s been awhile since Jenner was recognized as an athlete, Caitlyn is still the athlete we once knew. No matter her gender, Jenner remains the athlete that was famous for winning Olympic gold; the same athlete that once graced the front of the Wheaties box. But she is now famous for so much more. Her personal decisions have not impacted her past as an Olympian, and with that in mind, General Mills would be smart to stand by its slogan as “The Breakfast of Champions,” because Caitlyn is now a champion in more ways than one.
From a marketing standpoint, there is a huge benefit to Wheaties if they should choose to put Caitlyn on the box. Wheaties is poised to appeal to a new millennial audience, one that is more accepting than the generations that came before them, and stands to gain quite a bit in terms of corporate responsibility by acknowledging that as one of very few spokespeople for the brand, Jenner’s personal choices in her appearance don’t take away from her past accomplishments.
General Mills could decline because it has been so long since Jenner has been recognized by the public for accomplishments as an athlete. However, to take advantage of the buzz, General Mills could feature Jenner in a now and then box. The Wheaties brand has brought back athletes before, celebrating its 75th anniversary by featuring past champions on boxes. If the brand were to do something similar again, it would be making a huge mistake by not including Caitlyn.
Wheaties features athletic champions on its boxes to depict a healthy lifestyle, one that consumers buying the product can aspire to. It may be time to expand those recognized on the box to include athletes that don’t fit the stereotypical mold, and let consumers admire champions that are known for more than their athletic achievements.
Shawn may just have a point. But would this cause more of a ruckus amongst the media and parents of millennial on-lookers of the famous morning cereal? It’s a risk taker but would change perception by accepting one’s personal decisions.
Meet us in the comment section and let us know what you think!
Thanks to Shawn Prez for keeping things on a positive note!
Yes, believe it or not, the new and transformed Caitlyn Jenner has now made her appearance and she’s here to stay! Today, the dashing Caitlyn debuted her new Vanity Fair cover photographed by the legendary Annie Leibovitz. Laced in a white satin one-piece bustier, Jenner sits elegantly, legs crossed, with long brunette locks, and a chiseled face. You have to admit, she looks great!
The 65 y/o Olympic Gold Medalist and Reality TV captain, started a new IG in celebration of her new cover, new life, and immediately put her thoughts in 140 characters saying:
I'm so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can't wait for you to get to know her/me.
In case you’ve been under a rock, Bruce Jenner‘s transition has been chronicled for sometime now on the hit reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, once his sudden announcement to his immediate family of how he has been feeling for years about his gender type, and not being his true self, followed by an About Bruce special — along with a special 20/20 interview by Diane Sawyer.
Caitlyn talks to VF about criticism on pulling a publicity stunt for television:
“‘Oh, she’s doing a stupid reality show. She’s doing it for the money. She’s doing this, she’s doing that.’ I’m not doing it for money. I’m doing it to help my soul and help other people. If I can make a dollar, I certainly am not stupid. [I have] house payments and all that kind of stuff. I will never make an excuse for something like that. Yeah, this is a business. You don’t go out and change your gender for a television show. O.K., it ain’t happening. I don’t care who you are.”
Caitlyn’s kids are all in support of her new life and look forward to the new journey as well.
Bruce’s son, Burt (36) says:
“I have high hopes that Caitlyn is a better person than Bruce. I’m very much looking forward to that.”
A new granddaughter on the way from Kim Kardashian & Kanye West, and a new life….the timing couldn’t be any better!
Congrats to Caitlyn on such bravery! We applaud you!
