Kanye West left L.A. on a private jet yesterday afternoon after bonding out of jail following his dust up with paparazzi at LAX (click to watch Kanye boarding private jet).
'Ye landed in Hawaii and literally walked off the plane holding his $1,600 MacBook Air like, 'see, I'm working! I don't have a ghost writer!'
I guess appearances really are important to 'Ye because he wants it to appear that he wrote 10 posts on his blog yesterday before, during, and after tussling with the paps at the airport.
His juvenile antics ended up costing him almost 30Gs for a leased jet, jet fuel, two licensed pilots, and a $20,000 bond. All because he can't control his immature, volatile temper. I can see why Alexis left that ass.
What happened to the dress code that the NBA instituted a while back? I have never seen LeBron James cleaned up nicely except in that Vitamin Water commercial. Anyway, thanks to Greg for this shot of LeBron arriving in China for the Summer Olympic games.
About the only thing stylish in this photo is the Louis Vuitton Monogram Keepall LeBron is wearing. So he gets a pass for the rest of his getup.
Greg pointed out the $350 Beats By Dre headphones that LeBron has -- and that all the Olympic basketball players received for free from Apple. LeBron is wearing his with the red accessory wire for his iPOD. The Beats By Dre headphones use the same noise canceling technology as the BOSE QuietComfort Noise Reduction headphones which, coincidentally, also retails for $350.

Chris Brown showed off his new solid 18k gold Macbook Air recently. When you're young and dumb this is what you spend your money on. I guess he doesn't have an accountant or financial adviser. He'll be broke in 10 years.
In more Usher news, mobile phone giant Sony Ericsson and Usher announced a new business partnership yesterday in NYC. The few fans Usher has left can choose between uploading exclusive ringtones, wallpapers and pictures to their phones or winning a chance to meet Usher on a video shoot, and getting VIP tickets for a concert.
Usher said he signed the 12 month deal with Sony Ericsson because: "Cellphones are the future. you can't live life without 'em." Wow, that's deep.
Beginning today, all cell phone numbers will be released to telemarketers. If you're like me and you don't answer your phone unless you recognize the number, it won't affect you.
But to those of you who jump to answer every call - get ready to be besieged by telemarketers hawking everything under the sun!
The Federal Trade Commission has set up a National Do Not Call Registry where you can add your cell number to a Do Not Call list. You must call from the cell phone that you are registering. The number is 1-888 382-1222 or visit Donotcall.gov.
Endgadget.com reports that a line 60-deep has formed outside the NYC flagship Apple store today. Was there a cool new gadget released that I didn't hear about? No, apparently these dummies have been standing on line for hours to be the first to purchase an iPhone.
Yes, I know we've been through this madness already. But this is a new 3G iPhone. Whatever that means.
I am proud to say I never succumbed to peer pressure to buy an overpriced iPhone because I am in complete control of my mental faculties and common sense.

Remember when the iPhone was all the rage last year and people took off from work to stand in line all night so they could be the first to drop $600 on a cell phone? Well, Chanel has topped Apple with its own designer phone that will cost you your firstborn child when it hit stores this Summer.
The sleek Chanel Choco phone looks like a translucent Rubic's cube when closed. When opened, it resembles nothing like we've ever seen. If a real ET landed on earth, this is the gadget we would expect him to phone home with.
According to Tuvie.com, the Chanel Choco phone works by integrating an optical fiber system that display image between two glass parts. There are 12 micro lighter fibers, that throw image components to the glass, that offer a quite good luminosity, and keep the mobile phone concept as light as possible. All lights only appear when you open the phone, by pushing removable part on the side of it. (Source)
I want to be the first on my block to own this one-of-a-kind phone. Still, without seeing the specs, I don't know if it's worth handing over my firstborn child for it.
