Kanye West Talks About His "Champagne Problems"

Posted on Tue Oct 6th, 2015 11:12am PDT       By X17 Staff

Kanye West may have problems but he's aware that he has quality problems. In a new interview with Us Weekly, the superstar rapper reflected on his unborn son, and the issues that being in the media poses.

"Do I worry about being in the public eye and raising kids? Yeah... but it's champagne problems," he said of his life. "It's people who can't feed their kids. That's something to worry about more... These aren't real issues. There's people at war. There's people trying to make it to London right now.... That celeb s--t, it's not real s--t... You know what, I'm alive. I'm breathing... I have no problems."

The 38-year-old did a one-on-one interview with the SHOWStudio team at Paris Fashion Week, and answered some questions posed by Vogue's Anna Wintour, including "What will you name your son?" and "And what are your hopes for him as he gets older?"

Despite wife Kim Kardashian's statement that she loves the name "Easton," Kanye said, "I don't have a name for him, but what I hope for him is that he can feel purpose. That he can learn that he has the opportunities to..."

Yeezy also got reflective about witnessing something in Paris, explaining, "The other night I was driving in Paris, and I saw these three high school kids running top speed. I didn't know if they were chasing a guy or what, and there was a bus on the side of the street that was about to pull off, and they were beating on the side of the bus. And I looked at the time and it was like, 1 a.m., so that might be the last bus of the night, and I was just like, really saddened. I was like, 'How can I make my son feel that?'"

West himself has felt that desperation. "Because once you've felt that, then none of these f--king questions matter. When you've missed that last bus before, when you have the opportunity to get on the bus? You don't give a f--k about any of this," he mused. "And having to sleep downtown in a parking lot, it's almost like not feeling anything. It's almost like being numb because of what I went through."

Rihanna Reflects On Decision To Get Back With Chris Brown: "Maybe I'm One Of Those People Built To Handle Sh*t Like This"

Posted on Tue Oct 6th, 2015 10:30am PDT       By X17 Staff

RiRi should quit reminding people about her beat down from Breezy!

Rihanna covers the latest issue of Vanity Fair and doesn't hold back on chatting about casual sex, her ex Chris Brown, and her fondness for Rachel Dolezal. Random!

On taking Chris Brown back after he physically assaulted her:
    "I was that girl... that girl who felt that as much pain as this relationship is, maybe some people are built stronger than others. Maybe I'm one of those people built to handle s**t like this. Maybe I'm the person who's almost the guardian angel to this person, to be there when they're not strong enough, when they're not understanding the world, when they just need someone to encourage them in a positive way and say the right thing."

On why she finally called it quits with her abusive ex:
    "I was very protective of him. I felt that people didn't understand him. Even after... But you know, you realize after a while that in that situation you're the enemy. You want the best for them, but if you remind them of their failures, or if you remind them of bad moments in their life, or even if you say I'm willing to put up with something, they think less of you—because they know you don't deserve what they're going to give. And if you put up with it, maybe you are agreeing that you [deserve] this, and that's when I finally had to say, ‘Uh-oh, I was stupid thinking I was built for this.' Sometimes you just have to walk away. I don't hate him. I will care about him until the day I die. We're not friends, but it's not like we're enemies. We don't have much of a relationship now."

On not having casual sex:
    "If I wanted to [just have sex for fun] I would completely do that. I am going to do what makes me feel happy, what I feel like doing. But that would be empty for me; that to me is a hollow move. I would wake up the next day feeling like s**t. That's why I haven't been having sex or even really seeing anybody, because I don't want to wake up the next day feeling guilty. I mean I get horny, I'm human, I'm a woman, I want to have sex. But what am I going to do—just find the first random cute dude that I think is going to be a great ride for the night and then tomorrow I wake up feeling empty and hollow? He has a great story and I'm like...what am I doing? I can't do it to myself. I cannot. It has a little bit to do with fame and a lot to do with the woman that I am. And that saves me."

On her admiration of Rachel Dolezal:
    "I think she was a bit of a hero, because she kind of flipped on society a little bit. Is it such a horrible thing that she pretended to be black? Black is a great thing, and I think she legit changed people’s perspective a bit and woke people up.”

This bad gal is one tough cookie!

Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid And Joe Jonas Enjoy Park Life In Paris

Posted on Tue Oct 6th, 2015 9:40am PDT       By X17 Staff

Looking like they are filming a scene out of a movie, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Joe Jonas and another equally gorgeous friend enjoyed a languid and relaxing afternoon in Paris during Paris Fashion Week.

Taking a break in between Fashion Week events, the fashionable crew decided to have some down time in a Parisian park -- and we can't blame them! This looks like a pretty amazing life.

Gigi got comfy, lying down on her boyfriend Joe's lap. These two have been attached at the hip since they started dating earlier this year. We know that no one cares if Joe is at fashion week -- so he clearly is just in the City of Love to support his main squeeze, who's been busy lighting up the catwalk.


Kylie Jenner Swears Her Butt Is Real

Posted on Tue Oct 6th, 2015 9:00am PDT       By X17 Staff

That booty is more than a little suspicious!

Kylie Jenner showed off her new Spanx on Snapchat last night, but nobody was paying attention to the unflattering shape wear! Fans were quick to point out the reality star's fake looking butt, and some even went so far as to hint that she was wearing butt pads. Tyga's lady love was quick to shoot down the rumors, but we're not sure we believe her!

It is a little weird that the 18-year-old magically grew a Kim K derriere overnight...

Lady Gaga Trips Over Her Ballgown Before Flying Out Of LAX

Posted on Tue Oct 6th, 2015 8:06am PDT       By X17 Staff

Hope you have a nice trip, Lady Gaga!

Mother Monster learned the perils of wearing a ballgown to the airport when a pap cut her off causing the singer to stumble over her long dress at LAX on Monday night. We gotta say, Gaga does not look happy about the snafu, pausing intensely after the snag.

Hey Mr. Photographer, Lady G just threw you some serious shade!

For the airplane ride, the 29-year-old wore the most travel-friendly ensemble, a cascading gown and huge heels. Only Gaga! We are definitely liking her move toward old Hollywood glamour, and less blood, guts and gore.

Also is the "Applause" singer walking on a red carpet at an airport? Yes, yes she is.

Meanwhile, Gaga is gearing up for her TV debut on American Horror Story: Hotel, which premieres tomorrow night. On AHS: Hotel plays The Countess, a 100-year-old hotel owner who has an insatiable appetite for orgies and blood. She's not a vampire, but rather afflicted with a hemophiliac "virus" that leaves her thirsty for blood, blood, and more blood.

In a recent interview with E! news, she talked about the downfalls of celebrity, "I do know isolation," Gaga explained, "because I'm famous and it's hard to go be normal all the time. And when you meet people in public, 99 percent of the time, people aren't that interested in really getting to know me. There's sort of a wall between us that they think something of me that I'm not. I'm really just a human being that makes this...stuff."

Check out Gaga in her full glamour and gore, tomorrow night on FX's AHS: Hotel.


Jennifer Lopez's 46-Year-Old Booty Is Still On Fleek

Posted on Tue Oct 6th, 2015 7:00am PDT       By X17 Staff

After getting a peek at Jennifer Lopez in a pair of skintight white pants, it's pretty safe to say that age is nothing but a number. Well, for some lucky souls!

On Monday afternoon the 46-year-old actress headed to the dance studio to prep for her Las Vegas Planet Hollywood residency, and from her flawless skin to those sexy heels, she looked amazing. So when does J. Lo move to Sin City and what can we expect from her set?

The star's gig starts at Planet Hollywood on January 20, 2016, and she recently told ET Online, "I think I've been preparing for this my whole life. I'm excited about going to Vegas [and] doing the kind of quintessential show that I've always had in my mind. It's gonna have everything that I've been known to do over the years, and it's gonna be a beautiful, glamorous kind of Vegas show. Something that I think people, whether you're a fan of my music or not, would come and see and really enjoy. That's my goal."

We can't wait!


Gorgeous Miranda Kerr Departs From LAX All By Herself

Posted on Tue Oct 6th, 2015 6:31am PDT       By X17 Staff

Where was her billionaire beau Evan Spiegel? It seems like the two have been joined at the hip lately, so seeing her on her own is pretty weird!

On Monday evening Miranda Kerr jetted out of Los Angeles International Airport, and she was all smiles as X17 photographers snapped her photo. We're sure the Victoria's secret bombshell will be reunited with her Snapchat founder boy toy soon enough -- the duo can't get enough of one another! From dates at the farmers market to concerts, they're inseparable.

And after taking in Kanye West's show in LA last week, Miranda even Instagrammed a few words that were clearly about her new man. “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel,” the Maya quote read.


EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS - Kanye West Parties In Paris With A Mystery Gal While Wife Kim Is Pregnant And Miserable

Posted on Mon Oct 5th, 2015 7:08pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Rather than staying in and rubbing his wifey's feet tonight, Kanye West hit the town to party!

On Monday evening Kanye and a mystery woman were snapped at Caviar Kaspia restaurant in Paris for an event, and after that they stopped by the Plaza Hotel for one hour before arriving at Raspoutine night club. While we doubt this is anything other than a gal pal, you KNOW Kim Kardashian is jealous about it!

So what's Kim been up to? We haven't seen her out in a few days, but she did post a blog detailing how miserable her experience with pregnancy has been.

“I’m gonna keep it real: For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL,” Kim wrote on her website. “I don’t enjoy one moment of it and I don’t understand people who enjoy it. My mom and Kourtney clearly did! More power to them, but I just don’t relate! I’m not sure why I don’t like the experience like others do. Maybe it’s the swelling, the backaches or just the complete mindfuck of how your body expands and nothing fits...I just always feel like I’m not in my own skin. It’s hard to explain. I don’t feel sexy, either—I feel insecure and most of the time I just feel gross.”

At least she's not scared about sharing her feelings!
