Reality TV star Khloe Kardashian loves what she’s already heard of Kanye West’s controversial sixth studio album, Yeezus.
“I have heard some of his new music. I do love ‘New Slaves’,” she told MTV News.
During a recent appearance on Saturday Night Live, West previewed “New Slaves” and another controversial track, “Black Skinhead.”
Khloe’s older sister, Kim Kardashian, is knocked up by West. The baby is due sometime in August or September.
That sound you just heard is the lid of Hip Hop’s coffin slamming shut on Hip Hop as a music genre.
Disgraced rapper Lil Wayne just found a sucker to get him back in the good graces of the corporate world. 3 weeks after getting dropped like a hot potato by Pepsi, Wayne has signed talentless socialite Paris Hilton to a record deal on Young Money Cash Money Records. Cash Money co-founder Birdman made the announcement on Twitter today.
When Lil Wayne hits the road on July 9th with rappers T.I. and 2 Chainz for the 40-city ‘America’s Most Wanted’ tour, rapper Future will not be with them.
“I haven’t been on the road in a minute,” Weezy told MTV News on May 3. “I’m ready to get back out there and I’m going out there with Future and ‘em, and they’re going to obviously take over; I’m just playing the back field,” he said.
That same day, PepsiCo announced it was dropping Lil Wayne (and the tour) from a sponsorship contract due to offensive lyrics in one of his songs.
Country music star Brad Paisley calls his song, “Accidental Racist”, one of his proudest moments as a songwriter. But the single, off his new album Wheelhouse, is misfiring badly with some music critics.
Paisley’s song, featuring rapper LL Cool J, is causing controversy due to its lyrics which were intended to promote racial harmony between blacks and whites.
If you missed the 55th Annual Grammy Awards last night, you were not alone. I stopped watching the Grammys snooze fest when it became a popularity contest. Instead of showcasing and rewarding real talent such as Monica Brown and Ledisi, they award non-talented narcissists such as Beyonce, Rihanna, Wiz Khalifa (picture above left) and Frank Ocean.
The Grammys has always been less about talent and more about whoever kisses their butts the longest.
Sorry I have no recap. Thankfully, I’m not paid to watch this mess or report on it.
Watch the performances after the break.

Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime performance was so hot she caused a power surge that knocked out half the lights in the Superdome!
Okay, I’m kidding. But the lights did go out for about 30 minutes at the start of the 3rd quarter of the Super Bowl in New Orleans. With the Baltimore Ravens leading the hapless San Francisco 49ers 21-6, Jacoby Jones of the Ravens returned a kickoff for 109 yards and a touchdown to give the Ravens a 27-6 lead over the 49ers. That’s when the lights went out. The stadium was still buzzing from Beyonce’s halftime performance that left everyone gasping for more!
Watch the performance after the break!
