Drake praises Pusha T's diss track "chess move," still thinks someone should punch him "in the fucking face"

As with so many places where entertainment and emotion intersect, rap beefs exist in a weird, semi-real space. On the one hand, they’re pure marketing moves—a way for two performers to raise each other’s profiles, show off their lyrical cleverness, and hopefully sell a few extra albums. But they’re also often the…

Kenan Thompson tells Seth Meyers about skipping out on Kanye West’s SNL “circus” on Late Night

Kenan Thompson joined old Saturday Night Live pal Seth Meyers on Monday’s Late Night, with the two SNL veterans swapping the requisite stories from the live comedy trenches. Meyers, who’s hosting SNL for the first time on October 13, praised Thompson’s recent Emmy nomination for his unprecedented 16th year on the…

Kanye delays latest album, says a bunch of other shit we're just trying to block out at this point

We’re as exhausted by all these latest twists in the hat-based antics of Kanye West as everybody else by this point, so let’s keep this short and sweet: West announced today that his much-mentioned album Yandhi—which missed the September 29 release date he’s been hyping for it for weeks—has now been officially…

Lana Del Rey, Chris Evans and more respond to Kanye’s big MAGA weekend

When Kanye West indulges in his, shall we say, extracurricular activities—up to and including dumbass social media posts and poorly received rants on late-night sketch comedy shows—people will often say he’s doing it for the attention. If that’s the case—if Kanye is simply dabbling in the world of Trump in order to…

Kanye goes full garbage fire, says he’s bummed Louis CK isn’t hosting his SNL

God, but does the Kanye fatigue set in fast some times. Which is to say, professional rap contrarian Kanye West is on a diamond-encrusted roll today, proudly throwing down his support for alleged (and admitted!) sexual abusers of all shapes and stripes, which is definitely something America needed to put up with on…

Kanye West finds his higher calling, is creatively directing The PornHub Awards right now

In what we can only assume was a courtly, measured affair of shared admiration, light ribaldry, and only the gentlest of flirtations between woo-er and woo-ee, Pitchfork reports that Kanye West has finally agreed to help the professional masturbation facilitators at PornHub creatively direct their first annual awards…

Pornhub and Kanye West are reportedly in the midst of "insane negotiations"

There are few means of promotion more coveted than the celebrity endorsement. As we’ve seen time and again, a Beyoncé lyric can revitalize a fledging brand, while a rebuke from a Jenner can crater a company’s stock. When Kanye West unabashedly flew his freak flag for Pornhub on Jimmy Kimmel last month, the streamer…

Kanye releases wholesome new track about family, how much he wants to have sex with them

Kanye West is having one of his periodic resurgences this week, presumably dictated by the lunar cycle, or extra atmospheric pollen count, or possibly just the fact that he’s just been feeling kind of horny lately. After all, he talked about his porn habits on Kimmel this week—scoring himself a lifetime Pornhub…

Pornhub awards Kanye a lifetime membership, so he can really focus some attention on himself

Kanye West went on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, talking about all the things you’d expect a mercurial superstar to chat about on national TV: His wife, his work, his politics, his preferred masturbation habits. That last one came up when West responded to a question from Kimmel about his attitudes toward women in…

Kanye West talks to Jimmy Kimmel about being bi-polar, supporting Donald Trump

After wife Kim Kardashian appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last week, Kanye West followed suit with a wide-ranging, 20-minute interview with Kimmel on Thursday. Actually, “wide-ranging” is selling the scope of their talk short, as Kimmel followed West’s conversation through the multi-hyphenate star’s discussion of his…
