Kanye & Adidas Collaboration Part 2

yeezy-showAs New York Fashion Week draws to a close some of the best shows are saved for last, or planned during a show. That was the case of 2020 presidential candidate Kanye West when he made the last minute decision to announce his show during Friday’s Givenchy’s fashion show. Not worried if people would show up and excited to get the power of his media prowess to show up.

This is the second season of Yeezus’ collaboration with the usually typical shoe line. The first edition of the collection resulted in a huge hit, especially among the Yeezy Boost 360’s that became a hot commodity. Now, they are not found anywhere (unless you are willing to shell out some good change and bid on eBay).

The collection did not have much of a difla-ar-kanye-west-adidas-yeezy-2-20150916-001-620x420ferent look from the first, a lot more nudes and a lot more the Hunger Games inspired clothing (that is if they ran out of black & color to use). Knowing he didn’t have much knowledge in fashion, the “Blackskin head” took the second shot at the world of fashion and ran with it.

With that he used his star power and any1442432718_kim-kardashian-north-west-anna-wintour-seth-meyers-articlebody who is anybody in music, fashion and entertainment world showed up to support Ye’ in his latest business endeavor, his wife was not far behind the incorrigible Kim Kardashian. The Kardashian-Jen
ner family was there to show full support to their brother, Kylie and Kendall even modeled some of Yeezy’s pieces down the catwalk.

This last minute fashion show did not come without consequences, due to the late timing of the event the “Good Life” crooner caused a time conflict between another fashion designer Naeem Khan who was scheduled at the same time as West’s show.yeezy-michael-stipe-helena-christenson-debbie-harry

It is nothing less to say that Kanye wanted to make a statement in the world of fashion and what better way then inviting all your famous friends? Now thats what I call a good publicist strategy if I ever saw one.

Latest in Celebrity Splits: Chad Kroeger & Avril Lavigne

Screen Shot 2015-09-02 at 6.34.07 PM   Seems like everyday we find out about a latest couple in Tinseltown calling it quits. The latest in breakups comes from Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger and “Sk8ter Boi” singer Avril Lavigne announcing their separation after only two years of marriage.

avril-lavigne-4-300Sparks flew for these two when Kroeger came in to help Lavigne work on her fifth album back in 2012, in between writing sessions the chemistry grew and they started dating. Nickelback frontman became very smitten with “Girlfriend” singer and in the process of writing songs for her album, and some together, he proposed after 6 months of dating. They got married on July 1st, 2013 (also known as Canada Day) in a reconstructed medieval castle on the Mediterranean Sea in the South of France.

Screen Shot 2015-09-02 at 6.36.33 PMMany believed this was going to be a happy and long marriage for both after Avril divorced Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley. They released a song they recorded together and it seemed that the were on happy ground. Very busy artists they told the press that they had a set of rules they followed when away from each other that they called the keys to a “successful marriage”, one of them being that after 2 weeks of separation either one of them would travel to meet up and spend time together.

It wasn’t long before the rumor wheel got going and 1 year into their marriage there avrilseemed to be trouble brewing in paradise. Lavigne in her own way shutdown those rumors by posting a picture with Kroeger showing off the new ring she got for their one year anniversary and everything got quiet again.

Recently, the songstress was battling Lyme Disease and in the last couple of months opened up about her struggles with the disease. This is why the split seemed even more of a surprise when the split was announced.

Lavigne released a statement declaring their separation stating,

“It is with [a] heavy heart that Chad and I announce our separation today. Through not only the marriage, but the music as well, we’ve created many unforScreen Shot 2015-09-02 at 6.37.05 PMgettable moments. We are still, and forever will be, the best of friends, and will always care deeply for each other. To all our family, friends and fans, thank you sincerely for the support.”

This was the first marriage for Chad and second for Lavigne. Tell us, are you as surprised as we are about the Lavigne and Kroeger split? Let us know using hashtag #glamorouspaper or in the comments below!

The Ashley Madison Hack & its Casualties

ashley-madisonAs we have all been informed there was a hack on a certain matchmaking site, more information continues coming to light as people dig through the massive amounts of data leaked. The fact that this is not your usual matchmaking site makes this data that more interesting. This site was used to encourage married men and women to have an affair.  You heard right, married men and women, who would register on this site to get in contact and have affairs. Various congressmen and other  government officials are only some of the many registered users found on this platform.

The most shocking is that many celebrities were discovered to have had previous accounts in this website at different points throughout the years. Some of the celebrities seemed to be involved in this breach of privacy is Josh Duggar, better known from  TLC show 19 Kids and Counting, who just barely made it out alive when it was revealed that he sexually molested 5 young girls, some who were his own sisters; Sam Radar, a christian YouTube personality who was just caught in a scandal of lying about his wife’s pregnancy and miscarriage all for the sake of catching it on video and hoping to ride on the curtails of his video’s success; and last but not least Jionni Lavalle better known as Snooki’s husband famous from Jersey Shore and its spinoff show Snooki & Jwow.

The revelation that these celebrities have used this website at some point in time has not come without controversy. The fallout of this hack has been dreadful to watch and even worse to experience.

Josh Duggar responded and confirmed to the allegations that he was registered to the 150522094624-02-duggar-family-exlarge-169infidelity website stating that,

I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife

Due to that, he has volunteered himself to a longterm rehab to deal with the issues that seem to be steaming from a hyperactive sex drive.

Screen Shot 2015-08-27 at 5.40.19 PM
As for Sam Radar, many thought he would never respond or deny the claims made against him although the evidence proved that damning. He just simply replied that he was “abolished from that sin”. 

 

Nicole-Snooki-Polizzi-Wedding-Album-with-Jionni-LaValle-6The most disappointing of these reveals was Jionni, Snooki’s husband and sweetheart. The public had come to love the very involved parent of Lorenzo and Giovanna. This is why the news was disheartening. But with any reality tv marriage, this couple put up a united front and Snooki responded to the claims by denying that her husband was at all involved with the scandal stating,

“So no, my husband didn’t sign up on that website to cheat on me. Honestly, if he wanted to cheat- he would go out and do it. Not sign up on a website and pay for it. Jionni is a good guy and doesn’t need his name being tarnished. Nor does our family. We did nothing wrong to deserve this. So with all of this said, I love you babe. And even though I’m a pain in your ass, I know you would never cheat on me. Especially on a lame ass website.” 

Lets hope for the sake of this marriage, this is true. What are your views on the fallout of this scandal? Let us know using the hashtag #glamorouspaper or in the comments below!

Drake, his secret album, diss tracks… & Serena?

If you have paid attention to media headlines in the last couple of months you have been witness to the never ending fascination that is Drake or the native from “the 6”. In the last couple of years after releasing his third album Nothing Was the Same he was able to stay under the radar but in the last couple of months there isn’t a headline that did not involve Drake being in the middle of the media firestorm. With his growing star status that train seems in no way of slowing down.

imagesFrom secretly releasing his mixtape that had album caliber If You Are Reading This its Too late to a feud with Diddy for stealing the instrumental from his hit single “0 to 100” or Meek Mill calling him out for having a ghostwriter (in music industry this is when a rapper has someone write their verses for them which is frowned upon since you are supposed to be raw and real) which led to some very interesting (and one very sad) diss tracks that only helped prove that Drake is a powerful lyricist and knows how to command an audience, giving us a song that has only risen in the charts.
