  • Kanye West Says Media 'Lies to You Every Day'

    Posted Jul 4th 2011 at 03:04 AM by Boombox Editors

    Kanye West is nothing if not consistent. As the sole hip-hop headliner at this year's Essence Music Festival Saturday (July 2) night, the Chicago MC did not disappoint, offering up a visual feast complete with pyrotechnics, nearly two dozen dancers and elaborate lighting. Broken up into three acts, the Louis Vuitton Don ran through more than 20 songs, ranging from tracks off his debut album to...

    Posted Jun 14th 2011 at 01:20 AM by Boombox Editors

    Long before Amber Rose amped up her notoriety by appearing on the arm of Kanye West, there was another woman who held his heart: Alexis Phifer. The fashion designer was once engaged to West and although their break-up became the inspiration for his '808's and Heartbreaks' album, Phifer has remained quiet about their relationship, until now. In an interview with Vibe Magazine, Phifer broke...

    In what might be the oddest pairing of the year, Kanye West and Mary-Kate Olsen were spotted getting cozy earlier this week. The pair was seen hanging together at Submercer Nightclub in NYC on Wednesday night at West's 35th birthday party, E!Online.com reports. In fact, eyewitnesses claim they were kissing.

  • Amber Rose Talks Kanye West in Vibe Sexy Issue Cover Story

    Posted May 25th 2011 at 05:30 PM by PopEater Staff

    Everyone can let out a sigh of relief; Rick Ross isn't the only curvaceous body gracing the cover of Vibe's June/July Sexy issue. While a shirtless Ross valiantly tries to redefine modern day sexy, the folks over at Vibe also stuck to the traditional concept of the word and tapped hip-hop's hottest arm candy for their double cover issue: Amber Rose. Rose came up from the slim shadows of the...

    Amber Rose did more than just pose for a seductive pictorial in the July/August issue of King magazine, she also fired back at Kanye West for his public jabs at her.

  • Kanye West Kisses Mystery Woman in Cannes (Photos)

    Movies and sun aren't the only thing Kanye West is soaking up in Cannes. The controversial rapper, who is in France for the Cannes Film Festival, is enjoying some affection from the fairer sex as well. He was spotted kissing a mystery blonde on his hotel terrace on Sunday (May 15), and the pair didn't seem to mind putting on a show for photographers. This throws a big question mark over rumors...

  • Kanye West's Charity Shuts Down For Unspecified Reasons

    Posted Apr 20th 2011 at 02:22 PM by Boombox Editors

    Kanye West's charity is no more, according to The Boombox. The Kanye West Foundation, which was intended to prevent teens from dropping out of high school, has suddenly closed without reason, four years after its establishment. The news was made public after former executive director Joseph Collins sent an email to associates stating that he was out of a job and that the phone had been...

  • Kanye West Does Right By Coachella, Shows Up On Time and Rocks the Desert

    Posted Apr 18th 2011 at 11:25 AM by John Mitchell

    When Kanye West was announced as the Sunday night headliner at this year's Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif., we were dubious, to say the least. In 2008, we were present for his Bonnaroo debacle -- well, kind of. At about 4AM, with the hot Tennessee dawn a little over an hour away, when the crowd started chanting "Kanye sucks" and without any clear indication of when (or...

  • Katy Perry's 'E.T.' Video Is a Weird Sci-Fi Adventure With Kanye West

    Posted Mar 31st 2011 at 01:00 PM by Zach Dionne

    Katy Perry and Kanye West are an unlikely duo, and the video of their collaboration is a fittingly bizarre sci-fi oddity. Starting out with a 'Wall-E' meets 'Return to Oz' vibe, the video for 'E.T.' tractor-beams in every angle of sci-fi weirdness imaginable. We're talking 'Avatar,' 'Stargate,' 'A.I.' -- no theme is off-limits. And although Kanye's bars are definitely silly, possibly weak --...

  • Kanye West and Jay-Z Electrify at SXSW

    Posted Mar 21st 2011 at 01:30 AM by Spinner Editors

    SXSW's longstanding nickname "Indie Rock Spring Break" certainly wasn't accurate during the final day of the Austin music festival as hip-hop took over the Texas town, culminating in Kanye West's not-so-secret show in the city's former power plant. After a day marked by stellar sets from Big Boi at the MOG showcase at the Mohawk; Killer Mike, Lil B and a surprise mini-set from Diddy and Odd...

    This week's 'Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump' reminded us of that whole bizarre, widely publicized beef between The Donald and Rosie O'Donnell, and it got us reminiscing about all the other high-profile celebrity feuds that have captivated our attention, sometimes for years on end.

  • Is Kanye West Finally Growing Up Or What?

    Posted Mar 14th 2011 at 08:45 PM by Zach Dionne

    When Kanye West got turned away from Paris fashion shows last week, we waited for the inevitable explosion, for Yeezy's newest dozen-tweet rant. It never came. Our curiosity climbed. Then Kanye tweeted about Paris Fashion Week, and it was no kind of tirade; it was a happy photo of himself and a bevy of fans [above], simply tagged "photo from paris last week." What's going on here? Is Kanye...

  • Kanye West Unwelcome at Paris Fashion Week Shows

    Posted Mar 11th 2011 at 12:45 AM by AOL Music Editors

    Kanye West has an eye for fashion, but that doesn't necessarily mean he gets to see the catwalk shows in Paris this week. The outspoken rapper has been making the rounds at Paris Fashion Week, and while he's been spotted at the Valentino, Givenchy and Vivienne Westwood shows, apparently some designers are turning him away. According to the New York Post's Page Six, organizers are getting tired...

  • Kanye West Not Attending Fashion School, Rep Says

    Posted Mar 7th 2011 at 12:15 PM by Amber James

    Although Kanye West has expressed an interest in fashion, he's not ready to get schooled in it. After the rapper was spotted at London's Central Saint Martins College last week, rumors began to circulate that Mr. West was there to apply for a master's degree in fashion. But a rep for the college denies the reports. "Kanye West has not applied for a place on M.A. Fashion at Central Saint Martins...

  • Lily Allen Responds in Anger to Kanye West's Tweet on Abortion

    Posted Feb 25th 2011 at 02:00 AM by Boombox Editors

    Ever since Kanye West created a Twitter account last July, the rapper has carried his antics over to the social networking site with little censorship. After all, critics and fans have come to expect ridiculous rants and senseless tweets from the 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy' creator, and yesterday's was no different. West took to his Twitter account Wednesday night to express his...
