Jameela Jamil wishes her followers would stop pestering her about Kim Kardashian's body image issues.

Jameela urged fans to stop encouraging her to "scream" at Kim Kardashian, and simply unfollow the buxom reality star if they don't like her tiny waist posts.

The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star hit headlines earlier this week when she shared a snap of herself showing off her impossibly tiny waist in a corset.
 

Many fans contacted "The Good Place" actress Jameela, who has gained something of a reputation for speaking out on social media posts with damaging body image content.

Fans begged Jameela to weigh in on the situation, but the 34-year-old actress instead told her followers that they have the power to make their own decisions about posts like Kim's.

"I've received over 1000 DMs asking me to address this," Jameela wrote on Instagram.

"Kim, like many of us, has had decades of body image issues and obsession. This has been HEAVILY perpetuated by how much the media scrutinised [sic] her and her sisters over their appearances. She isn't actively trying to harm you. She’s just so harmed and deluded into thinking this is what SHE needs to look like to be special and beautiful and she's spilling it out onto her following. Is this wrong? YES. But I'm not sure she realizes that she's doing to others what her idols did to her, in making her think a tiny waist is the key to femininity and sex appeal."

Jameela said she's happy that her fans are aware that Kim has serious body image disturbance issues. "...it shows my work is done," Jameela said.

Concluding her post, Jameela stated:

"So there's no point in screaming at her. The smart thing to do is to protect YOURSELF. YOU have the power. YOU control every Market. YOU choose what and who is trendy. Unfollow the people who tell you things that hurt your self esteem. Don't let the debris of their damage spill out onto you. Unfollow people/brands that don't make you feel powerful and happy and grateful for what you have. You're the boss and none of them are s**t without you."

It's not the first time Jameela took aim at Kim and her equally damaged sisters. She previously slammed Kim's younger sibling Khloe for promoting diet supplements on her social media pages.

Ray J wishes people would stop bringing up that "super old" relationship with West Coast socialite Kim Kardashian.

Anyone who viewed their infamous sex tape would agree it was tired and dry, but Ray J and Kim managed to parlay the lackluster tape into undeserved riches and fame.

Now Ray J is urging the world to move on from his relationship with Kim Kardashian, insisting he's "exhausted" from hearing "super old" jokes about their former romance.

John Shearer/WireImage

The 39-year-old singer dated Kim on and off between 2003 and 2006, and infamously co-starred in Kim's sex tape. But now he and Kim have both moved on - with Ray fathering two children with estranged wife Princess Love and Kim a mother of four with husband Kanye West.

"I think we're all in a new space and so, you know, (I) just always think about my kids and think about my wife and think about my family first," he told Us Weekly. "So, you know, I don't take offense to any of that because the world will be the world, but it's definitely super, super, super old."

"I'm definitely exhausted from that life and that world and those subjects. But for me, you know, we always just, we're looking forward."

His comments come after Zachary Levi made a joke about his sex tape with Kim while hosting the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards last year.

"And, of course, America's other sweetheart Ray J, from Love & Hip Hop, is here," Zachary said in his opening monologue. "Although I'm sure some of you are more familiar with his work as a cameraman."

The camera then panned to a mortified Ray and Princess Love, who smiled and flipped her middle fingers up at the screen.

Kim Kardashian paid tribute to convicted cop killer Nathaniel Woods, who was executed by lethal injection on Alabama's death row late Thursday, March 5, despite heroic attempts by celebrities and politicians to save him.

Woods was pronounced dead at 10:01 p.m., 23 minutes after the execution process began. For his last meal, the 44-year-old requested sweet potatoes, spinach, chicken patty and leg quarter, cooked apples, fries, two oranges and an orange-flavored drink. But he only took one bite, according to ABC News.

Kardashian and other Woods supporters vented their anger and frustration at Alabama Governor Kay Ivey for refusing to halt Woods' execution after the Supreme Court lifted a last-minute stay of execution.

The 39-year-old reality star, who is known for her criminal justice reform activism, took to Twitter to mourn the Alabama man, who was sentenced to death after being convicted of fatally shooting three police officers in June 2004.

"Nate will die for a crime another man confessed to and says Nate had nothing to do with. My heart and prayers are with Nate and his family and all the advocates who worked tirelessly to save his life," she wrote, before adding in a later tweet: "RIP Nathaniel Woods."

Despite her claims that Woods was innocent, media reports stated that Woods actively participated in the murder of three police officers Carlos Owen, Harley Chisolm and Charles Bennett.

Four officers went to Woods' apartment on the morning of June 4, 2004 to serve a misdemeanor warrant on the known crack dealer. While inside the apartment, Woods' roommate Kerry Spencer opened fire on the cops with a shotgun.

A surviving officer testified that Woods pointed out one of the officers for Spencer to shoot. Two of the officers were shot in the back. Woods and Spencer fled the apartment. Woods then surrendered to cops.

Spencer confessed to being the triggerman. He was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to death. He now sits on Alabama's death row. Woods was also convicted of capital murder and sentenced to death.

Per Alabama law (and other jurisdictions), a criminal who participates in a capital murder is charged with capital murder as if his finger pulled the trigger.

While it was Spencer who committed the murders, prosecutors argued that Woods previously bragged about killing cops and it was his idea to ambush the officers.

Woods made headline news this week after Martin Luther King Jr's son took up his cause.

Transracial activist Shaun King pleaded with his followers to call Gov. Ivey and ask her to halt the execution. But it was too little too late.

After Woods was executed, King vented his anger on Twitter.com.

"And it is done.

The State of Alabama just executed an innocent man. Nate Woods is dead.

We are crushed that Nate experienced this grizzly injustice and crushed for his family.

This is a modern day lynching. He broke no laws, at all. Never fired a gun. And surrendered."

Bernice King, youngest daughter of MLK, tweeted: "We must eradicate the #DeathPenalty in the U.S."

She quoted her late mother, Coretta Scott King: "As one whose husband and mother-in-law have died the victims of murder and assassination, I stand firmly and unequivocally opposed to the death penalty for those convicted of capital offenses.” #CorettaScottKing #SaveNate."

Social justice activist Kim Kardashian-West visited with President Trump the same day his fellow billionaire Mike Bloomberg ended his campaign to oust Trump from the White House.

Bloomberg, 78, announced he was dropping out of the 2020 presidential race on Wednesday, the day after losing the Super Tuesday primaries.

Kardashian attended a meeting with Trump to thank him for commuting three more female inmate's prison sentences. Trump is an advocate for criminal justice reform. He has fulfilled his promise to pardon those who are unfairly sentenced to long prison terms.

Kardashian, who was a proud Hillary Clinton supporter, took to social media on Wednesday to introduce her followers to the three former inmates as they headed to the White House with her.

"White House here we come," she tweeted.

"Today Alice, Crystal, Judith, Tynice and I, along with the @cut_50 team will be at the White House bringing light to these women and discuss more change that our justice system desperately needs!"

Kim Kardashian-West has responded after the parents of 5-year-old rapper Zaza accused the reality star's daughter, North West, of sampling her song while performing at her father's show in Paris, France on Monday.

North, 6, hit headlines worldwide thanks to her surprise rap performance at her dad Kanye West's Yeezy fashion show, during Paris Fashion Week.

North performed her own cover of ZaZa's viral hit "What I Do". And while she's only six-years-old, Zaza's parents felt that Kim should have stepped up and given credit to their daughter.

Following the show, ZaZa's parents responded on her Instagram page, writing:

"In July of 2019, ZaZa & her dad went into the studio for the ultimate experience! To finally begin making the music she wanted to make. We take PRIDE in creativity, and believe whether a child’s involved or an adult… creativity deserves RESPECT/homage! What @kimkardashian (Kanye west) are doing with their daughter… with the inspiration of ZaZa & our family in mind is okay… we not mad BUT… PLS SHOW LOVE AND SUPPORT TO THE ORIGINAL FIRST!!!"

They added: "We admire Kanye west, and adore his journey. However, we don’t wanna feel like our daughter’s journey in the world of entertainment is being STIFLED."

Kim responded in a comment on the Instagram post, writing:

"We love you, North is a huge fan and records in the studio all the time with her dad and is inspired by ZaZa and loves Lay Lay too! Today’s performance of North’s remix of ZaZa’s song was something she asked to do at the last minute and a complete surprise. I didn’t mean to not give credit where credit was due. Would love for the girls to meet soon."

Kanye West's eldest daughter, North West, made her surprise rap debut at the rap producer/ designer's Paris Fashion Week runway show in France on Monday, March 2.

In the impromptu performance, the six-year-old rapped up a storm as models showed off the Yeezy Autumn/Winter 2020 collection.

The youngster showed some of her dad's confidence and swagger, walking onto the stage to the sound of car horns.

"Look at my shoes, they're new and cool," she rapped. "See my school, I'm new, walk to the streets, yeah yeah yeah. Cool, cute, cool, yeah..."

Her proud mom, Kim Kardashian-West, and her aunt, Kourtney Kardashian, showed their support, cheering the youngster on, before a proud Kanye joined his daughter onstage.

The Season Eight Yeezy show followed another big day for North's dad - he hosted his Sunday Service in Paris for the first time.

Anyone can lease a Ferrari, but not everyone has the pleasure of owning one. That's because Ferrari is such an exclusive carmaker that they can pick and choose who gets to own one of their coveted luxury supercars.

Photo by BACKGRID

Celebrities must abide by the same stringent rules of Ferrari ownership that other elite applicants are subjected to.

According to Yahoo Sports, when accepting applications for purchase, Ferrari picks carefully. There's a saying that goes: "You don't own a Ferrari, Ferrari owns you."

Driving a Ferrari off a lot comes with certain privileges that are not available to just anyone.

Photo by BACKGRID

Stars like Scott Disick (pictured top) and Travis Scott (pictured above) own Ferraris because they are low-key and not very flashy on social media.

Ferrari owners reflects the brand overall. Anyone who comes off as flashy, tacky or gaudy, will likely be denied ownership. Using their cars for self-promotion is also frowned upon.

If you're a celebrity with millions of social media followers, but zero class and a poor reputation for paying your bills, you're probably better off leasing a Ferrari.

Here are a few celebrities who have been banned from owning a Ferrari.

Tyga

Tyga is a washed up rapper with terrible credit and a shameful history of car repossessions. Among his repossessions was a Ferrari 458 Spider. It's safe to say that Tyga will be denied if he ever applies for Ferrari ownership.

The champion boxer earned his ban by flaunting his Ferraris for social media clout and only keeping his luxury supercars for a few months at a time. He is also banned from purchasing a Ferrari due to "financial trouble.”

The West Coast socialite can never purchase a Ferrari under her name, according to Yahoo. Black Chyna upset the automaker when she repainted her Ferrari in Barbie pink colors -- destroying the brand's specially formulated candy coated paint job in the process.

Kim Kardashian is prohibited from buying a Ferrari because she once accepted one as a gift back in 2011 from someone known for committing fraud, according to Yahoo.

50 Cent is an exotic car enthusiast who owns an impressive collection of vehicles. But he will never own a Ferrari outright. That's because Ferrari frowns upon social media trolls using their products for clout. Fiddy had a dead battery in his Ferrari 488, so he took to social media to call his car a "f*cking lemon," which left a bad taste for the automaker.

Justin Bieber famously "lost" a 458 Italia while partying it up on the town, according to Yahoo. The blue Ferrari was found 3 weeks later by one of his assistants. Bieber's application will be rejected if he ever tries to purchase another one.

Question: What's your favorite Ferrari?

More information has emerged about musician Kanye West firing his popular Sunday Service choir. Kanye's Sunday Service events were wildly successful thanks to the energetic gospel performances by his soulful choir.

Rumor had it that the choir was let go, but Allhiphop.com claims only about 30 choir members are gone. The choir is still 80 members strong.

According to AHH, "These are not union workers and so they have no sort of protection whatsoever from being let go. As far as pay, they were not paid particularly well, I was told, unless $500 for three days of work is good to you."

AHH goes on to say many of the choir members left full-time jobs to travel with Kanye's rolling gospel revival. The gossip blog says those who were fired did not see the pink slips coming.

"This is a mix of people, many that are not young, and they still want to make it."

Amanda Seales lashed out at Kim Kardashian West for a controversial photo shoot in which she appears a few shades darker.

Kim is accused of wearing "blackface" in a photo shoot for 7 Hollywood magazine. The mother-of-four sparked outrage after she released images from the shoot on social media on Thursday.

She captioned the images: "WHAT A DREAM."

"Are you f***ing kidding me?" Amanda wrote in all caps in the caption of a repost of Kim's photo.

In a video on Instagram.com, Amanda compared Kim's pose to a similar pose by Beyonce Knowles-Carter, and she claimed Kim was emulating Diahann Carroll and Diana Ross.

"Honestly, what is there to say? What is there to say? Cause what folks will say is 'But she has black children.' Stop it. 'But she's Middle Eastern.' Stop it. 'But she's helping black people get out of jail.' Stop! Drop! Shut em down open up... Stop it! 'But she's channeling Elizabeth Taylor' Stop it. Stop it. Stop it...."

She continued:

"You should care that someone is trying to take your rhythm but they don't know your blues... This is basic. This family is notorious for appropriating Black culture. They do not have any grievance about it. They don't give reverence. They don't pay homage. No, they mimic; they take; they commodify..."

Question: What do you think? Is Amanda (and everyone else) overreacting to Kim's photos?

Kanye West released his dark music video for his single "Closed On Sunday". It's fitting that Kanye released the visual on Thanksgiving Day since it's basically a plug for Chick-fil-A fast food restaurants.

The single is off his newly released platinum album Jesus Is King, which he describes as "an expression of the gospel." Listen to Jesus Is King here.

The video opens with Kanye watching over his wife, Kim Kardashian-West and their children, North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm, as they sleep on a rock formation in the desert.

In the next scene we see a caravan of light armored vehicles arriving in the desert, ready to do battle against unseen forces. The music video has an apocalyptic end-of-days tone to it.

After taking group portraits, Kanye climbs a rock formation to commune with God. "Follow Jesus, listen and obey," he raps. "No more livin' for the culture, we nobody's slave."

    I pray to god that he'll strengthen my hand
    They will think twice steppin' onto my land
    I draw the line, it's written in the sand
    Try me and you will see that I ain't playin'


    Now, back up off my family, move your hands
    I got my weapons in the spirit's land
    I, Jezebel don't even stand a chance
    Jezebel don't even stand a chance

Everyone's favorite part of the video is the final shot - when little North screams "CHIC-FIL-AAAAA!"

Kim Kardashian-West and rapper A$AP Rocky were name dropped during Wednesday's Trump impeachment hearings on Capitol Hill, according to Variety.com.

As you know, the Democrats are attempting to impeach President Donald Trump for using a foreign power to investigate possible corruption by former Obama Vice President Joe Biden.

Gordon Sondland testified during the impeachment inquiry on Wednesday. Sondland, the wealthy hotel chain owner who donated at least $1 million to Trump's inaugural committee, was appointed by Trump as U.S. ambassador to the European Union.

According to an earwitness, Sondland called Trump on an unsecured cell phone from the patio of a restaurant to discuss rapper A$AP Rocky's detainment in Sweden.

Sondland was treating foreign service officials to lunch, including David Holmes, who testified in a deposition on Nov. 15 that he overheard Sondland discussing the rapper with President Trump on the phone.

"Ambassador Sondland told the president that the rapper was, quote unquote, kind of eff'd there," said Holmes, who added that Sondland told Trump that Rocky "should have pled guilty."

Holmes added: "He recommended that the President, quote, wait until after the sentencing or it would only make it worse, unquote, adding, the President should, quote, let him get sentenced, play the racism card, and give him a ticker-tape when he comes home."

Holmes, left, said Sondland, right, also told Trump that, "Sweden should have released him on your word, and "tell the Kardashians you tried."

Testifying before the committee on Wednesday morning, Sondland said he vaguely remembered the conversation about A$AP Rocky. "Yeah, what triggered my memory was someone's reference to A$AP Rocky, which was I believe the primary purpose of the phone call," Sondland said.

One week earlier, TMZ broke the news that Kim Kardashian-West and her husband, Kanye West, contacted Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law, to enlist Trump's aid in securing A$AP Rocky's release from jail.

To date Rocky has never thanked Trump for speaking to the Swedish government on his behalf.

Kim Kardashian-West is reportedly set to launch oversized, conservative clothing for church folk who are fed up with women wearing club dresses to worship.

Kardashian-West, who is known as the First Lady of Sunday Service, was seated in the front row when her husband Kanye West preached at Joel Osteen's impressive megachurch in Houston, Texas over the weekend.

Kim wore an oversized green outfit that some people believe is from an unreleased Yeezy clothing line designed for conservative church folk.

"Why is Kim Kardashian wearing that 3X Tall suit from Harold Pener as her modest outfit for church? Girl, just wear some jeans and a shirt," wrote one Twitter user.

Kanye West, a 42-year-old Gemini, turned his back on secular rap music to answer God's call to lead the unwashed masses back to the church with his rolling gospel music revival.

Kanye reportedly chastised his curvy wife about wearing revealing clothing and allowing their minor daughter, North West, to wear makeup and a nose ring.

Rejoice ladies! Ray J is apparently back on the market. The R&B crooner and reality TV star blocked his pregnant wife, Princess Love, on Instagram.

Ray J, 38, apparently blocked his wife after she accused him of abandoning her and their 1-year-old daughter Melody in Las Vegas this past weekend.

"Somebody tell Scooty boy he's only hurting himself," she wrote next to a screenshot of her estranged husband's account. "This is so funny to me," she added. She also tweeted, "Time to let go."

The 35-year-old mother-of-one accused Ray J of leaving her and their child in Vegas after attending the Soul Train Awards on Sunday night.

"Left me and Melody stranded in Vegas and blocked me from calling," she wrote, "now you wanna post family photos #ByeUgly."

Princess's followers are skeptical that this might be a publicity stunt for their reality TV show. But Ray J has a history of failed relationships with celebrity females. It is not a stretch to believe their marriage is over.

Ray J's more famous sexual conquests include socialite Kim Kardashian-West and the late music icon Whitney Houston. He is best known for a viral sex tape he made with Kim in 2003.

Question: Do you believe Ray J and Princess Love's marriage is over and this is a PR stunt?
