TORONTO (AP) — Kanye West has teased the possibility of collaborating on an album with Drake.
The hip-hop superstars appeared together during a performance at OVO Fest in Drake’s native Toronto on Monday.
At one point during the show, video shows West asking the crowd if they were “ready for this album” before pointing toward Drake as he entered the stage.
Both Drake and West have mentioned the possibility of working with one another previously.
The rappers also appeared together during a concert in West’s hometown of Chicago last week.
After KIM KARDASHIAN released those phone conversations between KANYE WEST and TAYLOR SWIFT, it seemed like most people took Kim and Kanye’s side in the feud over his song “Famous”.
The popular opinion was that the videos proved Taylor LIED, even though there’s no audio showing that Taylor knew about the lyric, “I made that [B-word] famous” . . . which is what she’s always claimed she was bothered by.
In any event, Buzzfeed had a political polling company do a formal survey . . . asking over 2,500 registered voters where they came out in this supposed feud. You know, because it’s just THAT important. (???)
Of those polled, 75% were hip to the feud, which is incredible because they aren’t Buzzfeed readers, they’re just random people. On top of that, 38% were at least 55 years old, and 21% of them were over 65. So, like, grandparents.
So who wins? Taylor Swift. She got 34% of the vote, compared with 8% for Kim and Kanye. If there’s a saving grace here, it’s that more than half of voters apparently don’t care. 58% either had no opinion, or weren’t ready to make an official endorsement.
As for overall impressions, 55% of the people felt favorably about Taylor. Kayne only had a 15% favorable rating, and Kim had 16%.
Looks like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have finally set a date for their upcoming Parisian wedding. Sources have confirmed to Hollywood Life that Saturday, May 24th is the day that the reality show star and her rapper fiancé will pledge their lives to each other.
What’s significant about the date of May 24th? Apparently astronomers are under the impression that there will be a meteor shower that night – which fits right into their visions of a spectacular wedding.
At this point, the guests have been told that they need to arrive several days before the actual ceremony. And if you haven’t received your “Save the Date” card, don’t worry – E! cameras will be filming the entire thing for “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” It’ll be just like you were there.
KANYE WEST is accused of punching an 18-year-old guy who hurled the N-WORD at both him and KIM KARDASHIAN.
It all started yesterday afternoon, when Kim was walking into an office building in Beverly Hills. The guy actually held the door open for her as she was being swarmed by the paparazzi.
He then tried to gain some FAVOR with Kim by calling the photographers the N-WORD.
He also called them the gay slur that starts with the letter “F”.
He said, quote, “[Eff] these [Blank]-ass [N-words].” (But instead of [blank] he used that six-letter gay slur.)
Not surprisingly, Kim did NOT appreciate this. She told him that wasn’t cool, and he turned on her.
He screamed, quote, “[Eff] you [witch]. Just trying to help you. Shut up [N-word] lover, stupid slut.”
They both went inside the building, where the guy CONTINUED to berate Kim. Then Kanye happened to call Kim, because he was elsewhere in the building waiting for her. They had an appointment about furniture for their new house.
When the guy realized it was Kanye, he yelled, quote, “[Eff] you, [N-word]!” So Kanye came running down to confront him. The man ran into a chiropractor’s office, so Kanye followed him.
Sources say the racist was verbally attacking both Kanye and Kim. So Kanye SLUGGED him. At least one source says Kanye BARELY hit him. Before much more could happen, a third party broke things up.
Police were called, but Kanye was already gone when they showed up. The “victim” does want to press assault charges. Kanye is already facing an assault charge for attacking that photographer at Los Angeles International Airport last year.
