Kanye For President 2020

Kanye West announced that he plans to run for President in 2020 while accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at this year’s MTV VMAs.

The greatest announcement of all time, of all time. This Sunday’s MTV VMAS were filled with some shocking moments, from Nicki calling out Miley, to Justin Bieber sobbing on stage. However, the most shocking moment of all might have been when Kanye West announced his candidacy for president in 2020.

Kanye took the stage to accept the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award during the show. The award is one of the biggest honors of the night. Last year, it was presented to Justin Timberlake who then performed and even reunited NSYNC on stage for the occasion (one of my favorite MTV moments ever). However, producers for the show were not even sure what Kanye was planning to do until he did it.

Kanye allegedly kept changing his mind about the night. Originally, he was going to perform, then he was not going to even show up to the show, then he was showing up but no one knew if he was performing. What the producers did know was that Taylor Swift would be presenting the award. This marked a momentous occasion because it was on that very stage six years ago that Kanye infamously interrupted Taylor to announce that Beyonce “had the best music video of all time”. This was an event that Taylor referenced and poked fun of during her speech, even quoting his famous “I’m really happy for you and Imma let you finish” line.

It was then that Kanye took the stage and waited listening to the audience applaud him for an uncomfortably long time. It seemed as though he might perform, but instead he launched into one of the most rambling and confusing speeches of all time. He started with what appeared to be an apology to Taylor for his behavior six years ago and quickly got off on a tangent that included fresh juice, his hatred for award shows and his daughter. He even admitted that he smoked weed before taking the stage, “Y’all might be thinking right now, ‘I wonder did he smoke something before he came out here?’ And the answer is yes, I rolled up a little something, I knocked the edge off,” said West.

However, the most shocking part of his speech came at the end, when he announced his plans to run for president. “As you probably could’ve guessed by this moment, I have decided, in 2020, to run for president,” said West. This announcement elicited a shocked response from the entire audience, including Swift who was standing with Kim Kardashian and her family. In fact, the whole family looked pretty surprised and started to laugh. Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend, Tyga, even gave Kanye a high five as he exited the stage. It remains to be seen whether Kanye was just joking (as I suspect) or was actually serious about running.

Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton Split

There will most likely be some breakup songs in their future. Country music’s biggest couple, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, announced they were separating on Monday, July 20.

“This is not the future we envisioned,” the said in a statement to Us Magazine. “And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.”

The superstar pair was married four years ago in a Texas barn. Since then, they have been plagued by rumors of infidelity and a possible breakup. However, they always adamantly denied these allegations. In fact, Miranda previously said that she never planned to divorce and viewed marriage as a lifetime commitment. The couple was not that fortunate though.

Rumors began to swirl following the announcement that Miranda had cheated on Blake, possibly with singer and actor Chris Young. Young denied these claims though, saying, “I don’t normally address gossip but in this case I will,” He Tweeted. “My name has been mentioned as a contributing factor in Blake and Miranda’s divorce. That is totally FALSE. They are both my friends and I would not betray that friendship. Just wanted to clear that up. Love you guys – CY.”

Other rumors have circulated that an affair with another man is to blame for the destruction of their marriage. Additionally, many have blamed his desire to have a family and her reluctance as a catalyst. Allegedly, their hectic schedules, which led to them hardly seeing each other, was the biggest contributor. Soon after the couple’s announcement, it was revealed that their divorce agreement was already signed. Blake filed for divorce in Oklahoma on July 6 and had the documents sealed. The couple agreed to the terms laid out in their prenuptial agreement, giving Blake their Oklahoma property and Miranda their house in Nashville.

Since the announcement, Blake has Tweeted, including a message telling fans he was back at work on NBC’s The Voice. Meanwhile, Miranda canceled a show due to illness right after the divorce filing. Additionally, she broke down crying during a performance of “The House that Built Me” which was famously a special song for the pair. The song was originally meant for Blake to sing, but he gifted it to his then-fiancé Miranda after her response to it. No matter what caused their split, country music is not going to be the same without these two as a couple.

Ben and Jen Call it Quits

After many weeks of speculation, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck officially announced that they plan to divorce. Sad news considering the couple just celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary the day before, and with their down to earth images they had won a spot among my favorite celeb couples of all time.

“After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time,” the couple said in a statement to Us Weekly Magazine, confirming their split. “This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding.”

The two met on the set of the 2001 movie Pearl Harbor. However, it was not until they made the 2003 movie Daredevil, and after Affleck’s two-year engagement to Jennifer Lopez ended, that they started dating. They went public at a Boston Redsox game and a new, better, Bennifer was born. They became the sweet down to earth pair everyone rooted for. By April 2005 they were engaged and in June of that year they got married in a Caribbean ceremony officiated by her Alias costar Victor Garber.

During the course of their marriage the couple had three children: Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3. Additionally, they have starred in a number of hit films, even detailing how they take turns making movies so that someone is always at home for their kids. Affleck also won his second Oscar, for Argo, with Garner accompanying him to the awards show.

The couple is rumored to be handling the split amicably for the sake of their family. Affleck is even planning to stay on the couples Brentwood property. Additionally, the couple hopes to resolve the divorce quickly and without contention, while sharing joint custody of their children. It remains to be seen what will be determined in terms of child or spousal support. No matter what, this is definitely the end of what was a great Hollywood couple.

P Diddy Arrested for Attacking his Son’s Football Coach

P Diddy was arrested for allegedly attacking his son Justin's (pictured) football coach.
P Diddy was arrested for allegedly attacking his son Justin’s (pictured) football coach.

Apparently, no one yells at P. Diddy’s son and gets away with it. The rapper was arrested on Monday, June 22 for allegedly attacking one of his son’s UCLA football coaches and an intern with a kettlebell. However, he claims that he did so in self-defense.

Diddy was on the UCLA campus to watch his son Justin Combs, a junior redshirt defensive back for the Bruins, practice with the team. It was there that coach Sal Alosi allegedly screamed at Justin, leading Diddy to confront him in his office after practice.

According to Us Weekly Magazine, during the confrontation Diddy allegedly cursed the coach out and got into a physical altercation, eventually hitting an intern with a kettlebell in the weight room. Following the incident, the rapper was arrested at UCLA’s Acosta Athletic Training Complex and charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon (the kettlebell), one count of making terrorist threats, and one count of battery after police watched security footage of the exchange. However, according to statements released by P. Diddy’s team his actions were in self-defense.

”The various accounts of the event and charges that are being reported are wholly inaccurate,” Nathalie Moar, a rep for Combs Enterprises, told The Associated Press. ”What we can say now is that any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son.”

This is not P. Diddy’s first incident with the law. In 1999, he was infamously arrested outside of a Manhattan club that he was at with his then girlfriend Jennifer Lopez after gunshots broke out. The rapper was charged with four-weapon-related charges and also bribing his driver to take responsibility for the gun. He was later found not guilty on all charges. It remains to be seen if he will fare the same in this case.

Do you think P. Diddy acted in self-defense? Could this end badly for the rapper? Let us know in the comments below or Twitter using #GlamorousPaper

Kim Kardashian discusses her second pregnancy in the Newest issue of Glamour.

It’s a big week for the Kardashian- Jenner family! One day before Vanity Fair introduced Caitlyn Jenner to the world; a clip of what is to come on Keeping up with the Kardashians revealed that Kim Kardashian is expecting her second child with husband Kanye West.

The pregnancy news comes after months of fertility struggles and a lot of trying on Kim and Kanye’s part. Kim’s efforts to get pregnant have been well documented this season of KUWTK. Kim stated that she and Kanye were trying to get pregnant about “500 times a day” and Kanye previously said he was doing everything he could to have another baby with Kim. She started in vitro fertilization and rumors were starting to circulate they they were considering surrogacy. The most recent episode even ended with Kim stating that she was “so over” the process.

The process must have paid off though because in the preview for the second half of the season, Kim is seen telling Khloe “I just got the blood test back and I am pregnant!” After the announcement, momager Kris Jenner and Kardashian’s best friend Jonathan Cheban congratulated Kim and Kanye on Twitter. However, the rest of the family stayed pretty quiet on Social Media (maybe preparing for the reveal of Caitlyn?). Kim did discuss the pregnancy new in a cover story for Glamour, which hit newsstands today. Kim stated that she a Kanye were “so beyond excited” to be having a second baby.

Kim and Kanye are already parents to daughter North West, who will turn two on June 15. The announcement of their impending bundle of joy led many to joke that the new baby should be named South West. The couple just recently celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary on May 24.

Do you think Kanye and Kim will have a boy or a girl this time? Do you think they should name their child South? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter using #glamorouspaper.
