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.
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.

Sunday Paper July 5, 2015

Here’s a few popular stories in pop-culture and entertainment news for this week’s Sunday Paper!

Happy Birthday, America! Whether you were out sitting poolside, barbecuing with your family or having a relaxing day in, there was something to celebrate about this great country we call home. Check out what celebs did for their festivities.

Kim Kardashian West posed in an American flag, roller derby-esq outfit for Instagram and the expecting mom will have you saying, “where?!”

She also featured a picture of her Hubby Kanye West as he shows off his pearly whites with an American Flag background.

Old time buds Taylor Swift was snapped with Ed Sheeran for Instagram and she captioned the picture, “When @edsheeran shows up for the 4th of July in a red coat because he just can’t let it go.” Ed was quick to clap back replying, “ @taylorswift13 I don’t even know what you’re celebrating I just turned up for the free booze,”

Sofia Vegara also snapped a picture of her beau Joe Manganiello while he grilled out shirtless underneath his apron and captioned the pic, “Serious 4th of July business. Happy Independence Day!!!!”

Hilary Clinton may be falling behind in the Presidential debate to competitor Bernie Sanders, but after the comment she made people are getting to see her softer side.

The popular page “Humans of New York” which features random New Yorkers and their stories posted a heart breaking photo of a young man that was afraid of his sexuality this past Friday. Tons of LGBT members and allies flocked to the post to show their support for the young man and Clinton chimed in. Her words were so uplifting it became the top comment on the post. I’m sure this little boy has to know he is loved if the woman that is running for presidency is supportive of him.

Her comment reads:

“Prediction from a grown-up: Your future is going to be amazing. You will surprise yourself with what you’re capable of and the incredible things you go on to do. Find the people who love and believe in you – there will be lots of them. –H”

The comment was submitted with an “H” to signify it was her words on the post and not those of her assistance. Way to go Hilary!

One video that has been sweeping the internet with over 56,000 YouTube hits is a video of a father and daughter doing a beatbox battle and the results are sick! The father challenges his daughter and starts off to be doing better than what most people can do, but his daughter definitely shows him up and finished with a sickening two minute beatbox finale. Check out the video link below:

Show us your 4th of July photos, what did you think of Hilary’s comment on the HNY page and was this daddy, daughter duo a tie or was there a clear winner using the hashtag #GlamorousPaper

Celebrity Tweets of the Week

Screen Shot 2015-06-11 at 6.52.22 PM

Let’s start off this week with some news about the Kardashian clan. Everyone is very excited that Kim Kardashian is expecting her second child with Kanye West, and a few days ago it seemed confirmed that she was having a boy. Not so fast. Kim took to twitter to let everyone know that she has not revealed the gender of her baby yet, so all the articles saying it’s a boy are just speculation. She’s not having twins either (though how great would that be). Guess we’ll just have to wait to hear the news from Kim herself.

Screen Shot 2015-06-11 at 6.54.05 PMThe Tonys were this past Sunday, and it was a great show. Our favorite politically incorrect  host Billy Eichner live tweeted about the event, and even threw in a reference to a recent scandal going on in Hollywood right now. Many people are upset that Emma Stone was cast as a half-Asian character in the movie Aloha, when the actress is not Asian at all. The rest of the cast of the movie is very white, which is surprising since they are all playing residents of Hawaii. Director Cameron Crowe has since apologized for casting a white actress.

THEY’RE BACK! Gillian Anderson (Scully) shared a picture from the set of the brand new X-Files reboot, and everyone is freaking out. The cast and crew are busy at work, putting together a handful of episodes that will premiere in early 2016. Mulder himself (David Duchovny) also took to twitter and shared a picture of his script for the first episode, though unfortunately there was no sneak peak about the plot. Stay tuned for more info on this exciting reboot.

Lorde is gracing the cover of Vogue (Australia) and decided to share some beautiful pictures from the photoshoot. This was one of them, where she looks absolutely stunning in a vintage dress and jewels. The pop sensation (who only turned 18 a few months ago!!!) is doing great recently– she’s often hanging with BFF Taylor Swift or her boyfriend of a few years, and it is rumored that she could be releasing her next album this year! If it’s anything like the last one, I’m sure it’ll be a big hit.

And finally, the Gilmore Girls reunion we’ve all been waiting for!! Lauren Graham (Lorelai Gilmore) shared an insanely cute selfie with her TV daughter Alexis Bledel (Rory) and the two look so happy to be reunited. A lot more happened at this event though; most of the cast and crew were there, including all of Rory’s boyfriends (that’s not awkward at all!) It was great seeing everyone back together, especially these two.

Do you think Kim and Kanye are having a boy or a girl? And are you excited for The X-Files reboot? Let us know in the comments or tweet us using #glamorouspaper!

Kim Kardashian Expecting Baby Number 2

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

Welcome home, Caitlyn Jenner

The moment we have all been waiting for, well, truthfully – the moment Bruce Jenner has been waiting for has FINALLY arrived. Caitlyn, formerly, Bruce Jenner has made her first official appearance as a woman.

Caitlyn’s transformation journey has been published in Vanity Fair (on shelves tomorrow, Tuesday, June 2nd), and we are here to give you a wrap up of the 22-page feature story.

While she has just begun to reveal her story, it is clear that this has been a lifelong journey of secrets, emptiness, and now bravery and triumph.  During a comparison between winning an Olympic Gold medal to her first photo shoot as a woman, Jenner admitted to Buzz Bissinger (author of VF article) that this moment was much better. “This shoot was about my life and who I am as a person.”

Although Jenner has been waiting for this moment for several years, she suffered panic attacks immediately after her facial feminization surgery (she has not had genital surgery). Jenner had regretful thoughts, “what did I just do to myself,” – but those feelings quickly went away once she realized she had become the person she has always wanted to be. Jenner tells Bissinger that if she had never revealed her true self, she would have lied on her deathbed thinking, ‘you just blew your whole life.’

Jenner reflects on memories of wearing a bra and pantyhose underneath her suit during public speaking events, thinking to herself, ‘they know nothing about me.’ She explains her time as Bruce as a life filled with lies – lying from sun up until sun down, but now, Caitlyn doesn’t have any lies.

Caitlyn talks about her family and the mistakes she made as Bruce saying, “I have high hopes that Caitlyn is a better person than Bruce. I’m very much looking forward to that.”

Caitlyn’s family showed nothing but love and support today after the release of the Vanity Fair cover.

Here are some of their social media posts:

Here is a behind the scenes look at Caitlyn’s Vanity Fair shoot:

Let us all take Caitlyn’s bravery as a message to always stay true to ourselves, no matter how scary that may be.

“Soon as the Vanity Fair comes out, I’m free.”

Yes, you are Caitlyn and welcome home.
