Rap producer Kanye West’s war with high end luggage make Louis Vuitton took a strange turn when the narcissistic rapper told his fans to boycott the designer label until after the holidays.
West, 36, made the pompous request during a radio interview. He obviously thought his words held power to bring the French fashion house to its knees. The only problem is Louis Vuitton’s upper crust clientele don’t even know who Kanye is.
Actress Nia Long can certainly relate to songbird Ciara Harris. As I told you previously, Ciara kept her pregnancy under wraps because she feared losing work. According to an insider, Ciara feared she would not be booked for concerts and appearances if her pregnancy was revealed.
“She’s not making the announcement yet because she’s still working,” said the insider. He added: “No one will book her for concerts or nightclub appearances if they know she’s pregnant.”
Long says that’s exactly what happened to her. The 43-year-old mother of two says the calls stopped coming when her last pregnancy was announced.
Kanye West is in awe of rap mogul Jay Z’s ability to move like molten lava through the complex landscape of the corporate world. A former crack dealer who sold poison to his own people, Jay Z relies on his street skills to help him broker million-dollar business deals.

Actress Sandra Bullock surprised talk show host Jonathan Ross by rapping the lyrics to the Sugar Hill Gang’s classic hit song “Rapper’s Delight”.
Bullock, 49, was a guest on the Jonathan Ross Show, where she promoted her #1 movie in the country, Gravity.
Bullock said she learned the words to the song because she liked a guy in high school. “I was like, next time I go to the dance, I’m gonna know every word,” she recalls. “I’m gonna make sure he sees me lip syncing it, and I’m gonna catch his eye. And I’m gonna, like, say the words. And he’s gonna like me — and sadly it worked,” she said, as the audience roared with laughter.
“I need some beats. Give me some beats, yo!” she said before launching into her rap.
Bullock is raising her adopted son, 4-year-old Louis Bardo, as a single mother after divorcing Monster Garage host Jesse James in 2010.
Earlier this month, Bullock stirred controversy when she said she just got around to potty training Louis.
