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.

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?

Beyonce Knowles-Carter has added her name to a viral petition to prevent convicted murderer Rodney Reed's execution in Texas.

The 38-year-old singer has signed the Change.org petition, urging Texas Governor Greg Abbott to take another look at the evidence, WENN.com reports.

Kim Kardashian-West, Rihanna, Meek Mill, and Busta Rhymes have already signed the petition and urged fans to do the same.

Kim's husband, gospel musician Kanye West, 42, asked professional athletes in the NBA and NFL to stop playing for a week to help prevent Reed's execution.

Reed, who is Black, has spent 21 years on death row for the 1996 murder and rape of 19-year-old Stacey Stites, who is white.

Stites was scheduled to work at a grocery store in Bastrop, Texas on the morning of April 23, 1996, but she never showed up.

Her body was found later that day. She had been strangled to death with her own belt.

The prosecution linked Reed's DNA to live sperm found inside Stites' body during her autopsy. Police had his DNA on file because he had been arrested - but not convicted - in a different rape case.

Reed confessed that he had "consensual sex" with Stites on the day before her death, but his defense attorney claimed sperm can't survive in a deceased body for more than 24 hours.

Prosecution experts testified that sperm can survive for up to seven days. Reed was convicted and sentenced to death by an all-white jury.

But according to CNN, a former prison inmate named Arthur Snow, Jr. has claimed in an affidavit that Stites' fiancé, a Texas police officer, confessed to the killing.

Reed is set to be executed on November 20. His brother hopes all the celebrity attention will help stop Reed's execution.

Rihanna tweeted fans asking them to sign the petition: "One Click!!! SIGN this petition if you don't believe the Government should kill an innocent man!!!" she wrote.

Rapper Meek Mill, who campaigns for justice reform after his 2017 incarceration for a parole violation, tweeted: "16 days left and he will be executed for a crime he didn't commit."

Questlove, T. I., Gigi Hadid, and LL Cool J have also used social media to highlight Reed's case.

Kanye West is on a whirlwind promotional tour in New York City to launch his new Yeezy sneaker made of algae. The 42-year-old gospel musician toured a Burberry store with his wife Kim Kardashian-West.

During a spontaneous party thrown by WSJ magazine and FastCompany, Kanye said he plans to run for president in 2024.

In a video clip from the FastCompany Innovation Festival where Kanye spoke on a panel, he asked professional athletes in the NBA and NFL to stop playing for a week to help free Rodney Reed, the inmate whom Kim Kardashian-West is lobbying to get off death row.

"All the evidence says this guy didn't do it, and he's supposed to be executed in 30 days, and all the celebrity blacks will tweet about it. But the question is, will they stop playing basketball for a week to make sure that this innocent man gets out?"

Kanye also asked Black people to stop voting for who the elites choose for them.

"For Black people I say own your power. Your power is not to just vote Democrat for the rest of our lives. That's not the power," he said, according to Page Six.

"The power is when I talk to my lawyer ... I put on my trench coat and said, 'We're moving these factories to America, and that's how it's going to be' — and it's lovely." He debuted an algae sneaker, and proclaimed, "We moved the headquarters to Cody, Wyo … Our goal is to bring the manufacturing back to America — South America, North America — bring it back Stateside and to present jobs for people back here."

Kanye touched on losing his deal with Louis Vuitton which he said triggered his mental breakdown that landed him in a psychiatric ward in 2016.

"No one knew that was the beginning of me going to the hospital," he said.

Kim Kardashian-West says she has made sacrifices and totally compromises for Kanye West as he goes through a midlife change.

Kim stopped by The Real daytime talk show on Wednesday and suggested the rap musician, who turned his back on secular music, is going through a midlife crisis.

Kanye gave up rap music to preach to the unwashed masses during his popular Sunday Service gospel revival tour. Kim told The Real co-hosts that she supports her 42-year-old husband while he embarks on his religious journey. "I obviously want to honor him and what he's feeling. And he's been going through this life change," she said.

The West Coast socialite revealed she fights with her husband over the differences in their approach to raising their children since he became a born-again Christian.

The 39-year-old mother of four said Kanye removed the televisions from their children's bedrooms and he forbid 6-year-old North West from wearing lipstick.

Photo by JACK / BACKGRID

"He's very cautious about what we have in the house. We got rid of TVs in the kids' room and removed makeup from North's room. He's had this epiphany of being this... not that he wasn't an amazing dad, but being more strict as a dad and very forceful on the imagery that's in our household and what they see."

She said she has had to compromise as Kanye becomes "more strict" as a dad. She said they sometimes fight over his excessive demands. Rumor has it that he went through her closets and ordered her to stop dressing in half naked clothing.

"I think, at the end of the day, that's what marriage is. He's going to do things that I don't agree with and I support him and vice versa."

Celebrity narcissists begin planning their Halloween costumes on November 1 - the day after Halloween. The spirit of the holiday has been lost on celebrities who use the occasion to show off their elaborate, over-the-top, expensive costumes.

Narcissists don't care about taking their children trick-or-treating. Celebrity narcissists typically hire others to take their child trick-or-treating or they throw parties for the kids, which kills the spirit of the holiday for the kids.
 

Gone are the days of celebrity children showing off their Halloween costumes to their neighbors. Now their parents leave the kids at home to show off their extravagant costumes to the world.

Fans are growing wary of celebrity narcissists hijacking Halloween to boost their egos.

Question: Who is the worst Halloween celebrity narcissist?

Kanye West says social media entices men like him to stray from their marriages by hosting free photos of half naked women.

Kanye, 42, says he "suffers like Jesus" whenever he surfs social media, only to be confronted by images of women in various stages of undress.

The former rapper says social media tests a man's limits with all those sexy photos.

In an interview with Apple Music, Kanye compared social media to "modern day cigarettes" for their addictive qualities.

"I suffer - and I appreciate the suffering because we can just feel a little bit of what Jesus felt when we suffer, but social media makes me suffer," he said.

'I suffer from that and by me saying this out loud, I'm sure there's other married men that suffer in a similar way that are happy to hear me say, "Oh ya, I'm suffering."'

Wen asked why this is a specific problem for married men, he answered, "Because social media prompts women in particular to put out content that they wouldn't have put out...".

Kanye said the immediate availability of smut on social media only aggravates his sex addiction.

"When I was younger and I wanted to see something like that I had to pay someone that was older to go to 7/11 and buy it," he said, referring to p0rn magazines.

RSKM / BACKGRID

Kanye, who shares four children with his socialite wife Kim Kardashian-West, said his addiction to p0rn began when he discovered a Playboy magazine when he was 5. He said the discovery "affected almost every choice I made for the rest of my life".

Kanye previously asked his wife, Kim, to tone down her sexy outfits. He also reportedly asked other rappers to avoid having premarital sex while working on his No. 1 album, Jesus Is King.

Kanye was admitted into a psychiatric hospital in 2016 after he experienced a psychological emergency (mental breakdown).

Fans of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West don't know what to make of the news that the rapper-turned preacher didn't attend his children's Baptism in Armenia, Kim's birthplace.

Kim, 38, shared several beautiful photos on Thursday with her oldest daughter, North West, from inside Armenia's first cathedral, Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, The Blast reports.

"Thank you Armenia for such a memorable trip," Kim captioned the shots.

"So blessed to have been baptized along with my babies at Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, Armenia's main cathedral which is sometimes referred to as the Vatican of the Armenian Apostolic Church," Kim explained.

According to The Blast, it's unclear if 6-year-old North, who was already baptized in Jerusalem years ago, was a participant in this baptism.

But one person who was noticeably missing from the baptism was the children's father, Kanye.

According to several news outlets, the baptism happened on Monday and included Kim's three youngest children: Saint, 4, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 5 months.

But Kanye didn't witness the baptisms in Armenia, as he is busy preaching to the unwashed masses during his popular "Sunday Service" rolling gospel revival in the United States.

Kanye, a 42-year-old Gemini, recently took a break from his revival tour to meet up with former NBA player Rick Fox, 50, in his native Bahamas.

The stars went to the Bahamas to help rebuild communities that were negatively impacted by Hurricane Dorian.

Kanye West loved socialite Kim Kardashian before he even met her. The famed music producer says he had a "magnetic attraction" to Kim when the couple first met 10 years before they started dating.

In a new episode of the docuseries E! True Hollywood Story, airing on Sunday, Oct. 13, Kanye recalled the early days of their romance. The 42-year-old rapper gushed about the strong chemical attraction he felt for his "loving" and "courageous" future wife.

"Every time I was around her or I saw her, it was a magnetic attraction to this force of energy," West says in a clip from the segment. "She was good, pure, happy, loving, brave, courageous, strong."

Photo: WENN.com

The animal attraction wasn't as strong for Kim. The 38-year-old Libra reveals that her path kept crossing the rapper's before she deemed him worthy of dating in 2012.

"We just always kept connecting and coming into each other's lives," she adds. "And, then he invited me to Paris to his fashion show and that's when it happened. That's when we started our relationship. "I was like, 'S--t! Why didn't this happen sooner?' It was just right."

Photo: WENN.com

The couple tied the knot on May 24, 2014. They share four children - two by IVF and a surrogate. The brunette beauty recalls Kanye was initially discouraged from being associated with her.

"Everyone would tell him, 'You can't be with her. She's a reality star. She's gonna sink your career'," she recalls. "And, he was just like, 'But I love her. I don't care'."

After months of delays, Kanye West's long-anticipated Jesus Is King gospel album is finally here. But not everyone is impressed.

Jesus Is King is just 35 minutes long and relies heavily on Biblical texts.

Fox News called Jesus Is King "an evangelical rant about the evils of the modern world."

Kanye held listening parties in Detroit, Chicago and New York City over the weekend. While in New York, Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian-West took their children, North West, 6, Saint West, 3, and 1-year-old Chicago West to Cipriani's for lunch before holding his Sunday Service.

After dropping his album Kanye surprised fans by announcing he will stop making secular music and focus only on gospel music.

The announcement was met with skepticism and shock.

Many social media users believe Kanye is suffering from a mental illness characterized by religious fanaticism.

Religious fanaticism is defined as an obsessive enthusiasm and hypercritical devotion to religion.

Religious fanaticism is linked to many psychiatric illness, including Schizophrenia, Bipolar disorder, Anti-Social Personality Disorder, depression and anxiety.

Kanye West treated lucky fans to an advance preview of his album Jesus Is King in Detroit, Michigan on Friday night.

The rapper was supposed to drop his highly anticipated gospel album on Friday, but instead, he hastily organized a mystery fan get together in Detroit.

Earlier in the day, a spokesperson at the Fox Theater told Rolling Stone magazine the star booked the event on the same day and refused to share further details.

The spokesperson said he usually doesn't book the theater on the same day - but it's Kanye West!

Lucky ticket holders who attended the gathering, dubbed Jesus Is King: A Kanye West Experience, enjoyed a sneak preview of the long-awaited gospel album.

The event was free but ticket holders were asked to surrender their phones during the secretive event to prevent leaks. The preview session also featured a video clip from Kanye's upcoming IMAX documentary, Jesus Is Lord.

The Yeezy mogul's wife Kim Kardashian shared a clip online of fans cheering the star as he made a special appearance.

She later took to her Instagram stories to announce the project was set to drop on Sunday, in addition to more listening sessions to be held in his native Chicago and NYC.

"Kanye's doing a listening session in Chicago tomorrow, then NYC (New York City) Sunday. He's dropping the album Sunday. Just a few final tweaks to the mixes."

The 12-track album reportedly includes the previously released track "Water", which he debuted at one of his Sunday Service gospel gatherings earlier this year, along with tunes including "Follow God", "New Body", "Up From the Ashes", and "Sunday".

Before she became America's most well-known socialite, Kim Kardashian appeared as an unknown extra in a Tupac Shakur music video back in the day.

In a podcast interview, Kardashian, 38, said she appeared as an extra in a Tupac video when she was only 16 years old and virtually unknown.

She said she never met Tupac, who wasn't on the set when she was shooting her scenes.

"No, he wasn't there, I've never seen the footage," she said "We were walking down the runway, like we were models walking down a runway. It wasn't like we were in bikinis by the pool or anything like that. We were literally walking down a runway, and it was Kim Stewart, Kourtney, me and maybe like one or two other of our friends."

La La Anthony was spotted trailing behind Kim Kardashian again. Black Twitter says La La looked dead behind the eyes. I don't see it. But why does La La always walk behind Kim? Doesn't she realize that makes her look like a follower and not a leader?
