After a much publicized Twitter feud (and subsequent speculation that said Twitter feud was a publicity stunt), rapper/fashion designer/fashion feuding godhead Kanye West went on Jimmy Kimmel last night to clear the air. He didn’t, of course, clear up much–other than that he and Kimmel don’t hate each other. As for the rest, in typical West form, the interview devolved into a bunch of semi-coherent observations about the nature of being Kanye West and how difficult that is. Being really talented and rich is a prison! More

Twitter has rolled out a a “velvet rope,” a special filtering feature for high-profile Twitter users that allows them to filter out, well, us. More
In response to all the media coverage of Amanda Bynes‘ hospitalization and mandatory hold under a 5150 (upgraded to a 5250 now), Nick Cannon has written her a heartfelt letter on his Tumblr entitled, “an open letter to my sister, Amanda Bynes.” … More
“Did we want to do a line? No? That’s cool. Hey, did we want to do a line? Were we sure? It was like being out with a three-year-old on a sugar bender who happened to have a credit card.” More
As far as I understand the concept of “sleeping with” and “famous person.” Also, this guide is in case the act of actually becoming famous seems like a price you are not willing to pay (kids, remember that eating human flesh will make your hands shake uncontrollably!) and you are an only child.

While zipping around Google recently, I realized that one of the more popular questions across the vaunted search engine was “how to become famous.” Though stubborn autocorrect continued to suggest “how to become anorexic,” the question of the fame seeking yielded 36,700,000 results (“how to become anorexic”? A paltry 147,000). I then decided I must spring into action! With a little help from my own heaving brain, this week’s Illustrated Guide will teach you how to claim the spotlight for your own.
Warning: no one said getting famous was easy. Some may find the following images disturbing. More
It’s a little surprising that anything Lady Gaga does makes news anymore, as if a woman who wore slabs of raw meat as a dress is now going to shock us with how far she’s willing to take fashion. More
News has recently broken that Emma Watson will be taking some time off from Brown University to focus on her career. On her website, she writes that:
“I love studying pretty much more than anything but recently I’ve had so much to juggle that being a student AND fulfilling my other commitments has become a little impossible.”
There are a lot of good things about being a celebrity. You’re rich, you’re famous, you get a ton of free shit, you get in to every restaurant the day it opens, and you have a team of people whose jobs are literally defined by you.
Well, now we know that there’s yet another awesome thing about fame: a shoe closet, as modeled here (accidentally, it turns out) by Christina Aguilera. More
So here is a picture of a shoe with Michael Jackson’s face on it, except they’ve sort of broken it up and turned him into Frankenmichael. It is, therefore, terrifying, and maybe a commentary on the necrotic nature of fame itself. Can’t think about it too much, have to polish off pumpkin pie remnants. Happy Sunday. - Buzzfeed More
You know what could never happen? Snooki going missing. You know why? Because there is absolutely no way on god’s green earth that she could go anywhere without being heard and/or seen. I’m not even sure that it has anything … More
Wouldn’t it just suck to be a celebrity’s sibling? Always standing in the shadow of your celebrity sibling, never being celebrated for your own (less notable) achievements. Of course, I’m just speculating, because I am not a celebrity’s sibling or … More
