Kanye West Arrested in England

Posted by Bossip Staff

Kanye West is behind bars this morning according to Livesteez:

Rap superstar Kanye West was arrested after an alleged run-in with a photographer outside a nightclub in Newcastle on Friday morning.

The rapper was arrested on suspicion of assault outside the Tup Tup Palace, reports Britain’s Evening Chronicle.

“We can confirm that a 31-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault following an incident at a Newcastle city center club in the early hours of this morning,” said a Northumbria Police spokeswoman. “He was released without charge and no further action is being taken.”

Earlier in the night, West performed a sold out show at the Metro Radio Arena as part of his Glow in the Dark world tour, according to People.com.

This is not the rap star’s first clash with the paparazzi. In September, the “Love Lockdown” hitmaker he was arrested for vandalism at the Los Angeles airport after allegedly damaging a photographer’s camera.

We don’t know whether it’s the Paparazzi overdoing it, or Kanye being too much of a diva, but one of these parties has got it coming to them. We’ll be sure to let you know which one it is as soon as we find out more details.



Kanye on The Cover of Fader

Posted by Bossip Staff

This is Kanye’s crunchy mug on the cover of the 10th anniversary issue of Fader magazine. Here’s a charming quote from the article:

“What I want is for people to realize at this point is, I don’t give a f*uck. That’s why I made this album. I’m using auto-tune because I don’t give a f*ck. I like the way it sounds.”

We also have more bean spillage off of Yay’s new new album featuring the Gobblin and their ever so trusty Vocoder. These cats think they’re singers now. SMH

Is anyone out there feeling Tell Everybody That You Know, by the dynamic duo?

Kanye’s Now Accepting Applications

Posted by Bossip Staff

Kanye is looking to settle down, but can’t find the right woman:

“I want to have kids,” he tells PEOPLE. “But I want to have the right girl too – someone who really cares about me.” Still, the savvy hip-hop star is no easy prey. “When I’m in a club, girls are super-calculating, planning every step,” he says.

West – speaking exactly a year and a day since the sudden death of his mother, Donda – said making his new album, 808’s and Heartbreak, helped him deal with his sense of isolation. (It was a rough year for West. In addition to losing his mother, he also split with his fiancée, Alexis Phifer.)

“It’s lonely at the top,” he told reporters Tuesday at a London listening party for the new album. “Losing my mom, having no woman in my life to support me – I feel like I’m on my own and can only express it through my music.”

Poor thang can’t find a decent chick to save his life. He’s doing the right thing by not paying attention to any of the sisters in the club who wouldn’t give him the time of day if his stacks weren’t sky high. Good luck, Yeezy; you’re gonna need it.


Who Looked More Bangin’???

Posted by Bossip Staff

A slew of stars hit up the 2008 MTV Europe Music Awards in Liverpool, England. Our girl, Beyonce, was there along with the alleged victim of a Bey song ganking, Leona Lewis. The song is gone, we all know that, but there might be a way for Leona to even the score. We must ask, Which one looked more bangin’?

Check out more pics of Solange, Kelly, Kanye, and Bey below.

Kanye’s “Heartless” Video

Posted by Bossip Staff

We don’t think Yay will be too upset with himself over this video being broadcasted. This Cool World-esque cartoon is actually clean. Are you Bossipers feeling Kanye’s new vocoded out steez???

Yeezy Lights Up Liverpool

Yeezy crossed the pond to perform with Estelle. From the brightness of that young @ss hot pink and fuchsia jacket, the crowd didn’t need any extra lighting to know where he was at all times.

Are you feeling his new jawn? More importantly, how many of you are planning to go out and cop this ish?

Yeezy’s Panties in a Bunch… Again

Posted by Bossip Staff

Yeezy is a little ticked off at the leakage of the Robocop song but it seems like his people leaked the single. Who else could have? Here’s a snippet of the temper tantrum found on Kanye’s blog:



He’s out here doing all this posturing and sh*t, but we know what’s up. Sell your CDs, boy.

Ho Sit Down

Posted by Bossip Staff

Danity Kane’s ex-resident ho, Aubrey, appears to be working hard to stay relevant by any means necessary:

Sources say highly talented Kanye West was sucking face with bimbonic pop tart Aubrey O’Day . We’re told the duo were recently at 1Oak making out. “Either they actually kissed, or Aubrey was just telling people they kissed,” said our source. The buxom “Hairspray” star made headlines recently when she was kicked out of her MTV band, Danity Kane, and then romantically linked to Donnie Wahlberg. Reps on both sides had no comment.

While it’s easy to believe that Ho-Aubrey, would bend over backwards (quite literally) for even a sliver of celebrity, this sounds like a publicity stunt. Wasn’t Yeezy just allegedly bussin slob with Rihanna? Anyone remember what Kanye did the last time he had an album out?


More Kanye Leakage

This is another leak from “808’s and Heartbreak” called “Robocop.” Another way out styled vocoder song by Yeezy. Do Bossipers think he went too far with this one??

Check it out. Robocop

Kanye Does Big Boy

Posted by Bossip Staff

Kanye visited Big Boy’s Neighborhood and touched on losing his mother to Hollyweird and previewed his new song, “The Coldest Winter.” He also explained that he decided to try to sing for an entire album because he wanted to make the “most incredible album you’ve ever heard.” Okay Kanye….

Bitter Sweet

Posted by Bossip Staff

Kanye may have been somewhat comforted during his grief knowing that his mom heard “Hey Mama” shortly before she passed:

KANYE WEST’s song HEY MAMA was the last tune the rapper’s mother heard before she died from cosmetic surgery complications last year (Nov07), according to her own mother. Concerns for her daughter’s wellbeing prompted Jean Roberson to rush to Donda West’s bedside after the professor failed to regain consciousness after eight hours of surgery. To wake her, Roberson took out her cell phone and played the version of West’s Hey Mama she had downloaded as a ringtone. In an exclusive interview with U.S. TV news show Access Hollywood, Roberson says, “I put the phone to her ear and said, ‘Donda, listen… “Wake up, listen. Kanye’s singing to you.'” The patient eventually did come round and was wheeled out of surgery in “an executive chair”. Donda West died the following evening.

This is a bittersweet story if ever there was one. No doubt Yeezy will use this whole experience as material for some new and creative music in an effort to continue to make Moma West proud.


Question of the Day

Posted by Bossip Staff

Grab a gander at your boy Kanye West at his promo shoot for his new album, 808’s and Heartbreak.

If you had already agreed to go to the Prom with Yeezy and he showed up dressed like a serial-killing nerd (above), would you still go?

One more shot for you below:

Yeezy Ganked Y’all?

Posted by Bossip Staff

NY Mag.com is saying Yeezy ganked a small piece from them for his blog:

Look, we certainly know how much work goes into maintaining a blog that updates daily — and we’re not even platinum-selling hip-hop superstars with demanding schedules that include recording albums, smashing cameras, and hiring naked ladies to stand around at our listening parties — but that’s no excuse for trying to pass off someone else’s words as your own. Which is precisely why we were so disappointed to learn that Kanye West, in a post on model Jourdan Dunn, has egregiously lifted an entire biographical timeline on Dunn from our Website without giving credit. Now, Kanye’s is still indisputably the world’s greatest blog — on the Internet or elsewhere — but this simply will not stand. We can only hope that this post was not also plagiarized from somewhere.

They are putting him on blast for the publicity rather than trying to contact him and resolve it. That is out of pocket. What do you Bossipers think??

We better source these hoes for that quote before they start crying and ish…SMH


Celebrity Tonsil Hockey

Rihanna was allegedly seen bussing slob with Kanye:

They’ve often been snapped snuggling, but Rihanna and Chris Brown claim that they’re just close friends. Well, there may be a reason for that! The Barbadian beauty was spotted cuddling Kanye West backstage at a T.I. concert at the Key Club in Hollywood on Oct. 3. “Rihanna and Kanye hung out together after they performed their songs,” says an insider. “Rihanna was sitting on Kanye’s lap, singing along to the music. Before long, the two were full-on kissing each other.” Adds the source, “People were shocked. After a while, Rihanna must have realized people were watching, because she had her security escort her back to the dressing room.”

Now, that’s how you get a rumor started… and mono. This does not sound like RiRi’s or Yeezy’s steez at all. Unless they were both on lean, it seems unlikely that this happened in full view of the hawks. You need more people.
